Privacy Policy

AVB Language Group B.V. (AVB) is committed to the proper management of your data. We handle your personal data with care and adhere to the relevant legislation and regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation.

In this Privacy Policy, we explain what personal data we process, for what purpose the processing takes place, how we safeguard the security of your personal data, and what your rights as data subject are.

What are personal data?

Personal data are the data that can be directly or indirectly traced back to you personally, for example, your name and address, phone number, email address, date of birth, and IP address.

Purpose of the processing of personal data

Your personal data will be used to provide you with good service during the interpreting order and for its administrative handling. We will only collect and process the personal data that are necessary to achieve the purpose of the processing. Your personal data are also kept for no longer than necessary.

The security of your personal data

We have taken various technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your personal data.

Specific privacy requirements apply to our employees and freelancers. They are required to sign a confidentiality agreement before being hired or before the start of their contract. The security of your personal data is also ensured by our adherence to the need-to-know principle when performing a service and by the fact that access to your personal data is only granted to those persons who are actually processing your personal data.

Employees and freelancers are likewise required to report the loss of personal data as quickly as possible. As soon as such a loss is reported, a careful investigation will be conducted in accordance with our data breach protocol and we will take measures to minimise any consequences. If necessary, the loss of the personal data is reported to the Dutch Data Protection Authority and to the data subject(s).

In order to secure the digital processing of personal data as effectively as possible, our IT infrastructure is optimally secured and the anti-virus software is kept up to date.
