Secure processing of personal data
Fluid Translation processes your personal data when we manage your orders and translate personal documents like certificates, as well as when we contact you. Below, we clearly describe which data we collect, why we collect it, and how your data is used saved and protected.
Fluid Translation respects the right to privacy of its clients, suppliers and other individuals and always strives to protect the personal data of these parties in a secure way. This policy aims to help you understand what type of data Fluid Translation collects and how it is used.
What type of personal data do we collect?
The main types of personal data we collect are data that you yourself provide to us (for example, name, telephone number, email, invoicing address) when you contact us for a quote or information, place an order or subscribe to our newsletter. A translation assignment can also contain personal data, for example an annual report or a certificate.
Fluid Translation’s processing of your personal data
The personal data we collect and store falls into the following categories:
1. Contact information, including name, company, address and email
2. Billing information, including corporate identity number and billing address
3. Order history of your previous orders
4. The content you provide to us to work on, which can contain personal data
We process contact and billing information for the following purposes: to manage orders, keep in touch during and after an assignment, to provide information about our business and to deliver marketing communications. If you have provided your contact information so that we can perform an assignment for you, we will store this information so that we can keep in touch during and after the assignment. If you have placed an order with us, we will store all documentation, including quotations, call-off orders, invoices, contracts, banking details and mail communications, for as long as it is relevant for business purposes and required by law. The information is usually saved in email programs and an address book. Our project management system also contains a customer register that we keep up to date with contact information and billing documents. The billing documents that are stored in our accounting system contain the company name, contact person and address, and these are saved in accordance with the Swedish Annual Accounts Act.
We use a hosted mail server to store all business correspondence so that we can provide you with the best service when we have contact with you again. There, we also store personal information sent by email, for example in your email signature. We also store information such as client agreements, questions about terminology, project issues and other discussions related to our assignments. Such information usually does not contain personal data. If you send us sensitive information that you want us to delete when the assignment is completed, please let us know.
Your order history is saved to ensure quality in our follow-up efforts and to provide you with the best service for the next assignment. This is an important part of being able to provide the best quality possible in our services. In order for us to be a professional service partner, we use the information you provide to identify you, your company and your orders.
The content we translate or review for you might contain personal data. Examples include names in a press release, names of people interviewed for articles or a biography of board members in annual reports. We store both the source material and the finished product in their entirety and in segmented form (sentence by sentence) in a locally stored database. We use these two sources for future translations in order to maintain consistency or to efficiently update assignments if you have any changes. The texts are saved separately for each client. We share this database with our suppliers to ensure translation consistency, and these suppliers have agreements with us as personal data processors.
