Collection of personal information
I will, from time to time, receive and store personal information you enter on my website or give to me in other forms. You may provide basic contact information such as your name, phone number, address and email address to enable me to send information, provide updates or process your product order. I may also collect additional information at other times but not limited to, when you provide feedback, change your content or email preferences, respond to a survey, or communicate with my customer service representatives. You may change your details at any time by advising me in writing via email. You may ask me at any time whether your personal data is being processed by me and for what purpose by advising me via email. I will provide access to a copy of your data in an electronic format on request. You may ask me at any time to remove any of your personal data stored in my systems by advising me in writing via email.
Storage and security of personal information & files
I strive to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of personal information and files submitted through my site and update its security measures to keep up with current technologies. All information I receive from my customers is protected from unauthorised use or access by my secure servers. Credit card information is not stored by me on my servers. Any files sent through the website for assessment and quote purposes will be deleted upon the client’s request. You may ask me at any time to remove these files from my database by advising in writing via email.
I may use personal information collected from you to provide you with information and updates regarding my business and news from the translation and cultural localisation industry.

You may change your email details at any time by advising me in writing via email. If you wish to cease receiving any such information you may unsubscribe or let me know by email and your request will be actioned as soon as possible.
I may, however, use in a general sense, without any reference to your name, your information to create marketing statistics, identify use demands and to assist it in meeting customer need generally. In addition, I may use the information that you provide to improve my website and services but not for any other use.
Disclosure of your personal information
Personal information is only supplied to a third party supplier when it is required for delivery of goods or services which you have purchased (e.g. NAATI-certified translation). I may, from time to time, need to disclose certain information which may include your personal information, to comply with a legal requirement, such as a law, regulation, court order, subpoena, warrant, in the course of a legal proceeding or in response to a law enforcement agency request. I may also use your personal information to protect the copyright, trademarks, legal rights, property or safety of Jan Hein (Semiotiko), I, its customers or third parties.
If there is a change of control in one of my businesses (whether by merger, sale, or otherwise), or a sale or transfer of its assets, customer information which may include your personal data, could be disclosed to a potential purchaser under an agreement to maintain confidentiality or could be sold or transferred as a part of that transaction. I would only disclose your information in good faith and where required by any of the above circumstances.
Collection of non-personal information
Any non-personal information, communications and material you send to this site or to me by email, or which I obtain from third parties without promises of confidentiality, may be kept, used and disclosed by me on a non-confidential basis. You agree that any information you send to this site must be truthful, not violate the rights of others and be legal for me to possess and use.
