Privacy and Cookie Policy

This page contains the privacy policy and some additional information on cookies. I try to keep it as simple and clear as possible. The last section lists some practices I use to protect confidential information.

Privacy Policy

I, Dmytro Nehrii, PE, will be the Processor of the personal data you provide to me via this website greattranslations.com.ua or any other means. I only collect basic personal data about you which does not include any special types of information. This does however include name and email, and may also include postal address, phone number, ID or tax number, payment and delivery conditions, financial and bank account details, provided that we shall enter into contract.

Why I need your data

Visitors to my website are not obliged to provide personal data. Nevertheless, anyone interested in my services can contact me via the contact information provided, and some personal data has to be collected in order to establish communication.

The legal basis for processing your data is to perform the services you request or to take necessary steps prior to fulfilling that request and complying with legal requirements. I collect, store and use such personal data for the purposes of issuing a quote, providing translation, copywriting, revision or consulting services that you request or to comply with legal requirements.

I do not use your personal data for marketing purposes. I will not collect any personal data from you I do not need in order to provide services to you.

Categories of data subjects

I hold data on clients, suppliers, collaborators, data processors and potential clients for legitimate interests.

What I do with your data

I process all the personal data myself, however the information sent via e-mail is stored on servers located in Ukraine. No third parties have access to your personal data unless the law allows them to do so.

How long I keep your data

The data will be retained throughout the business relationship only, or for the length of time stipulated to comply with legal and tax obligations.

Data relating to quotes will be retained for up to six months. In cases of work carried out, I am obliged to retain your personal data for five years to comply with tax obligations. I will delete email communication after five years.

Content data I don’t have any legal basis to retain

If you send me files that contain personal data for me to evaluate the price and/or possibility of translating them (or providing other related services), and we don’t eventually enter in an agreement (written, oral or by e-mail correspondence), I will destroy all such data and the files you have provided.

What are your rights

You are entitled to access, modify, erase or contest the personal data that I hold, in accordance with the EUROPEAN GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (EU) 2016/679. You are welcome to contact me via dmytro@greattranslations.com.ua.

Online presence in social media
I maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with active customers, interested parties, and users and to inform them about my services.
I would like to point out that your user data may be processed outside the European Union. This may pose risks for users because, for example, the enforcement of users’ rights could be more difficult. With regard to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, I would like to point out that they commit to comply with EU data protection standards.
Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. This means that these companies can create profiles based on your browsing behavior and your assumed interests. In turn, these profiles can be used, for example, to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to your interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on your computer, in which your browsing behavior and interests are stored. Furthermore, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by you (especially if you are a member of the respective platforms and are logged in there).
The processing of your personal data is based on my legitimate interests in effective user information and communication with users in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If you are asked by the respective providers for your consent to data processing (i.e. to consent by ticking a checkbox or confirming by clicking a button), the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 GDPR.
For detailed information regarding the respective processing and the possibility of opting out, I suggest you visit the following links and read the information published by the respective providers.
Also, if you plan to request any information or wish to carry out your user rights, I’d like to point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to your data and can directly take appropriate measures and provide the information you need.
