With Your Express Consent

In situations where we need your consent to process your personal data, such as for certain marketing and promotional activities, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.

Sharing Your Information

We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance with the law. We only allow such third parties to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions. Specifically, we may share your data with:

  • Service providers who provide IT and system administration services.
  • Professional advisers including lawyers, bankers, auditors, and insurers who provide consultancy, banking, legal, insurance, and accounting services.
  • HM Revenue & Customs, regulators, and other authorities who require reporting of processing activities in certain circumstances.
  • Third parties to whom we sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets.

International Transfers

We share your personal data within the NN Translations Group. This will involve transferring your data outside the European Economic Area (EEA). Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the EEA, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by implementing at least one of the following safeguards:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection for personal data by the European Commission.
  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts approved by the European Commission which give personal data the same protection it has in Europe.
  • Where we use providers based in the US, we may transfer data to them if they are part of the Privacy Shield which requires them to provide similar protection to personal data shared between Europe and the US.

Data Security

We have implemented appropriate security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used, or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered, or disclosed. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who have a business need to know. They will only process your personal data on our instructions, and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Data Retention

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.

In some circumstances, you can ask us to delete your data: see below for further information on your right to erasure. In some circumstances, we may anonymize your personal data (so that it can no longer be associated with you) for research or statistical purposes, in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.

Data Security Measures

To ensure the security of your personal data, NN Translations employs a range of physical, technical, and administrative measures:

  • Encryption: We use strong encryption technologies to protect data in transit and at rest.
  • Access Controls: Access to personal data is strictly limited to those employees who need it to perform their job functions. We enforce a minimum privilege policy and conduct regular access reviews.
  • Data Minimization: We ensure that only the minimal amount of data required for our services is collected and stored.
  • Regular Audits: Our security policies and procedures are regularly reviewed as part of our commitment to making ongoing improvements.
  • Employee Training: All employees receive training on the importance of data protection, focusing on the specific security practices they must follow and the potential consequences of non-compliance.

International Data Transfers

Given the global nature of our services, personal data may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (EEA). In such cases, NN Translations ensures that data is transferred in compliance with applicable data protection laws and that the same level of data protection is applied. We use the following safeguards for international data transfers:

  • Adequacy Decisions: Where possible, we transfer personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of data protection by the European Commission.
  • Standard Contractual Clauses: We use approved contractual clauses to ensure that data transferred outside the EEA is well protected.
  • Binding Corporate Rules: In cases involving intra-group international data transfers, we rely on approved Binding Corporate Rules that ensure all group entities meet the EU’s data protection standards.

Your Legal Rights

Under certain circumstances, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data. These rights include:

  • Right to access: You have the right to request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
  • Right to correction: You have the right to request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.
  • Right to erasure: You have the right to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law.
  • Right to object to processing: You have the right to object to the processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
  • Right to restrict processing: You have the right to request that we suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • Right to data portability: You have the right to request that we transfer the personal data you have provided to us to another organization, or to you, in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format.
  • Right to withdraw consent: Where we are relying on consent to process your personal data, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.

If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us.
