How data is collected through our website
Who is responsible for collecting data on this website?
Data on this website is processed by the operator of the site. You can contact the operator by clicking on "Legal Notice" below.
How do we collect your data?
Data is collected when you send us information, for example through our contact form. Other data is collected by our IT systems when you visit our website. Most of this is technical information (e. g. your web browser, operating system or the time at which you accessed a page). This data will be collected automatically as soon as you start browsing our site.
What are we using your data for?
Part of it is collected to help ensure that our website works as you expect it to work. Some data are used to analyze what you do as a user.
What are your rights concerning your data?
You have the right to receive information free of charge on the origin, recipient and purpose of your personal data. You are also entitled to have these data rectified, restricted or erased. Feel free to contact us at any time, using the contact details at "Legal Notice". You also have the right to file a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority.
Analysis tools and third-party tools
Your browsing behaviour on our website may be analysed statistically. This is mainly done by using cookies. As a general rule this analysis is anonymized, which means that the information on browsing behaviour cannot be traced back to you. You can object to this analysis or prevent it by not using certain tools. You will find more details on how this is done further down.
2. General Remarks and Legal Information
We'd like to caution you that data transmission via the Internet (e. g. when communicating by email) is never 100 % secure, which is why your data can never be fully protected against any access by a third party.
The controller responsible for the processing on this website is:
Syntax Sprachen GmbH
Konferenzdolmetschen - Übersetzungen - Beratung
60435 Frankfurt am Main / Germany
The controller responsible for the processing is the natural or legal person which, alone or jointly with others, determines the purpose and the means of processing personal data (e. g. names or email addresses).
Right to withdraw data protection consent
Many data processing activities are only allowed with your explicit consent. You can withdraw your consent any time by sending us a simple email. Data processed before your withdrawal shall continue to be valid.
Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
You have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority if your data protection rights have been infringed upon. The local supervisory authority in Germany is the State Data Protection Officer (Landesdatenschutzbeauftragter) of the State in which our company is registered (Hessen). Here is a list of data protection officers in Germany and how to contact them: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html
Right to data portability
You have the right to receive the personal data that we have processed based on your consent or in fullfilment of a contractual obligation in commonly used and machine-readable format. Should you ask for transmission of the data to another controller we will do so to the extent this is technically feasible.
SSL or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect sensitive data, e. g. requests for quotes or any other enquiry you send us, are encrypted by SSL or TLS. You will recognize encryption by checking the address bar of your browser, where http will change to https and a lock symbol will appear. When transmission is encrypted by SSL or TLS the data you send us cannot be read by third parties while it's sent.
Access, Restriction, Erasure
You have the right - within applicable laws, at any time and free of charge - to receive information about your stored personal data, how it was collected, its recipients, the purpose of data processing and, where applicable, the right to rectification, restriction or erasure of these data. To do so and for any questions on your personal data please contact us using the contact details in our "legal notice".
No unsolicited advertising (spam)
We hereby object to the use of the contact information published in the statutory legal notice on our website for the purpose of sending us unsolicited advertising or information documents. The operator of this website expressly reserves the right to take legal action against anyone sending us any such information, e. g. by spam email.
3. Data Recorded by our Website
Most of the cookies we use are session cookies. They will be deleted automatically when you leave our website. Other cookies will remain on your device until you delete them. They allow the website to recognize your browser when you return.
Cookies that are required for electronic communication or cookies necessary to offer certain features you would want as a user (e. g. shopping baskets) are stored according to Art 6 Para 1 f GDPR. The operator of a website has a legitimate interest in storing cookies that are needed to offer their services in a smooth and optimized way.
Server Log Files
The Web hosting provider for this site collects and stores information in server log files that your browser sends out automatically. These are:
- Browser type and version
- Operating system
- Referrer URL
- Host name of computer accessing the site
- Time of the server request
- IP address
These data are not merged with data from other sources.
This data processing is based on Art 6 Para 1 b GDPR, which allows data to be processed for the performance of a contract or for steps prior to entering into a contract.
When you contact us through our contact form your information (including the contact details you specify there) will be stored in order to answer your enquiry and for answering any follow-up questions. We will not transmit the data to others without your prior consent.
Processing the data entered in our contact form is thus based entirely on your consent (Art. 6 Para 1 a GDPR). You can withdraw that consent at any time. To do so, simply send us a normal email. Any data processing done before you withdraw your consent shall continue to be valid.
Data you enter in our contact form will remain in our systems until you request erasure, withdraw your processing consent or the purpose of storing the data has lapsed (e. g. having fulfilled your request in full). Data will continue to be stored to the extent required by law - in particular by legal provisions on keeping records.
Processing data (customer data and contract data)
We only collect, process and use personal data to the extent necessary for establishing, describing or changing a contractual relationship (customer data). This is based on Art 6 Para 1 b GDPR, which allows data to be processed for the performance of a contract or for steps prior to entering into a contract. Personal data on the use of our website (user data) is only collected, processed and used to the extent necessary to offer our services to users or for billing purposes.
Customer data collected will be deleted either upon fulfilment of contracts or termination of the business relationship. Data will continue to be stored to the extent required by law.
