Privacy policy

Scope of application

This data protection declaration informs about the type, scope, and purpose of the collection and use of personal data by Target Languages GmbH. Personal information is any information that serves to identify a person and which can be traced, such as a person's name, e-mail address, and telephone number.

General

Target Languages takes the protection of personal data very seriously and always treats it confidentially and in accordance with the applicable legal regulations. Only authorized employees have access to stored data. Employees and service providers are bound to the strictest confidentiality.

Collection and processing of personal data

Data is only collected, stored, and processed for purposes that are directly related to Target Languages' original business activities and the customer relationship. The requirements of data economy and purpose limitation are taken into account.

All data transmitted to Target Languages within the scope of a translation or other order, including the contents of documents to be processed, will only be used for the purpose of fulfilling the order. All Target Languages employees who come into contact with the data during the execution of the order are also bound to confidentiality.

 

Freelancers and translators are generally required by Target Languages to maintain confidentiality and handling data confidentially. In general, these contractors collect and process data only to the extent necessary for the provision of the services ordered. 

 

Target Languages uses various computer programs and databases for order processing and data storage, primarily from Microsoft and Zoho. The client (customer) is required to inform himself individually about the data protection guidelines of these data processing partner companies.

 

Misuse and inappropriate disclosure of data by or to third parties does not occur. Data is only transmitted to state institutions and authorities within the framework of mandatory national or official legal provisions.

Right to information, correction, and deletion

The customer’s or user’s rights to information, correction, and deletion of his personal data are always protected.
 
Target Languages will provide information on which personal data has been stored upon request. Customers and users have the right to have false data corrected and personal data blocked or deleted, unless otherwise required by law.

The use of the website is generally possible without providing personal data. Where personal data such as name, address or e-mail address is requested, this is done on a voluntary basis or out of technical necessity. These data will not be passed on to third parties without the express consent of the user.
 
In addition, information provided by the user's browser or mobile application, such as the previously visited website, the type of browser used, the device and operating system with which the website is accessed, and the time and date of access. This information does not allow personal identification. This data is not merged with other data sources.
 
The Site is hosted by Wix.com, Inc. Data can be collected and stored by Wix servers. By using the Site, you consent to the collection, disclosure, storage, and use of your personal information by Wix in accordance with the Wix Privacy Policy available at
www.wix.com/about/privacy.
 
Data transmission over the Internet can be subject to security vulnerabilities. Target Languages cannot therefore guarantee complete protection against access by third parties.

Cookies

When using this website, cookies are stored on the user's computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the user's hard drive in conjunction with the browser used and are used to transmit certain information to Target Languages as the operator of the website.
 
Cookies cannot initiate programs or transmit viruses to the user's computer. They serve only to make the Internet offer more user-friendly, safer, and more effective. Target Languages uses cookies to identify a user for future visits when they have an account with Target Languages. Otherwise, the user would have to log in each time he visits the site.
 
The information stored with the help of cookies is stored separately from the additional data provided. In particular, the cookie data is not linked to other data. Among other things, this website uses permanent cookies. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a certain period of time, which can vary depending on the cookie. The persistent cookies used by Target Languages remain for approximately

3 hours after the end of use or after closing the browser.
 
The user can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of his browser.

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are necessary for the functioning of the website and cannot be deactivated in the systems used. They are usually only set in response to actions performed by the user that result in a request for services, such as defining data protection settings, logging in or filling out forms.
 
The user can set the browser to inform about these cookies, but some parts of the website will then not work. These cookies do not store any personal data.

Functional cookies

These cookies enable the website to offer extended functionality and personalisation. They can be set by Target Languages or by third parties whose services have been integrated into the site.
 
If the user does not allow these cookies, some or all of these services may not function properly.

Third-party cookies

Some parts of the prolingo.net website include contents and services from external providers. These services may also use cookies and other components. Target Languages has no influence on the use of personal data by these providers. It is the user's responsibility to check the websites of the respective providers for their data protection regulations.

Handling of contact data

If the user establishes a connection with Target Languages through the contact options offered, the transmitted data is stored so that it can be used for processing and responding to the request. The above principles of confidentiality and data protection apply.

Interactive data

When using an interaction tool such as comments, chats or similar, the IP address of the user is stored. If the use violates valid law, the identity of the user can thus be traced.
 
Target Languages offers a customer newsletter. This can be requested via the contact form on the website. A valid e-mail address must be entered. The data transmitted by the user will be stored and used for the purpose of initiating or expanding a business relationship. The consent given to the storage of the data and its use can be revoked at any time.

YouTube

The prolingo.net website uses plugins from Google's YouTube site. This website is operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If the user calls a page equipped with a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. The YouTube server is informed about which website the user has visited.
 
If the user is logged in to his personal YouTube account, YouTube can assign the surfing behaviour directly to the personal profile. The user can prevent this by logging out of his YouTube account.
 
Further information on the handling of user data can be found in the data protection declaration of YouTube.

Concluding remarks

The measures described above do not guarantee that data will not be retrieved, passed on, changed, or destroyed by violation of data protection regulations. By using the services of Target Languages or using this website, the client or user confirms that he understands and accepts these risks and agrees to the storage and use of his data as described in this statement.
 
Target Languages reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to change all or part of the site, terms of use, and privacy policy at any time without notice. The user is therefore requested to inform himself regularly about the current regulations published on the website.
 
Should one of the above provisions be or become invalid, this shall not affect the validity of the remaining provisions. The invalid provision shall be replaced by a valid provision that comes closest to the economic purpose of the invalid provision.
 
For reasons of simplification, this data protection declaration refers to "the customer/user" in the masculine form. However, the respective terms apply accordingly in the male and female form.
