GDPR Privacy Notice

GDPR Privacy Notice
My name is David Tracey and I work as a freelance translator and editor in Switzerland. You may contact me in my capacity as the data controller via my email address:

Why I process your personal data
I collect, store and use your personal data only to issue a quote, provide a translation or editing service that you request or to comply with legal requirements. I do not use your personal data for marketing purposes. Personal data collected may include your name, postal address, email address and telephone number. Personal data may also include special categories such as health information, but only if you send these data to me for the specific purpose of translating them. The legal basis for processing your data is to perform the services you request or to take necessary steps prior to fulfilling that request (GDPR 6(1b)). The legal basis for processing special categories of personal data such as health information is your explicit consent for me to translate, revise or edit that information (GDPR 6(1a)).

Who else receives your personal data
If I send a text for revision or editing to a colleague, that text will be anonymised, so your personal data will not appear in it.  My website and email domain are hosted by SiteGround; see their privacy notice.

How long I keep your personal data
In the case of quotes, I delete all personal data after six months. In the case of services rendered, I keep personal data for five years to comply with tax obligations and for up to ten years for translation reference purposes.

Your data access rights
You may contact me at any time to request a copy, rectification or erasure of your personal data. I will take action without undue delay and in any event within one month of receipt of the request.

Your right to lodge a complaint
Should you have any concerns about how I process your personal data, please contact me. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in Switzerland or in the country where you live.
