Thank you for the interest you have shown in our company. Data protection is extremely important to us which is why we would like to bring a few points relating to data protection to your attention. You can use our website for information purposes without any personal data being collected. However, if you wish to contact us using the form or use our services, it is possible that we will have to process your personal data.
We always process personal data, for example the name, address, e-mail address or telephone number of a data subject, in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation and with the national data protection regulations which apply to Übersetzungsbüro Dr. Feix.
Person responsible for processing your personal data (controller):
Disclosure of data to third parties and third-party suppliers
We comply with the statutory regulations when we process your personal data. We only disclose data to third parties as permitted under the statutory regulations.
We sometimes transfer personal data to processors or other third parties (for example translation agencies, freelance translators, etc.) with whom we collaborate. We are entitled to do so if the data subject has given his/her consent (see Art. 6 (1) (a) and Art. 7 of the GDPR), if we do so to satisfy contractual or pre-contractual duties (see Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR), if we do so to meet a legal obligation (see Art. 6 (1) (c) of the GDPR) or if we are protecting our justified interests (see Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR).
Purpose of the processing
We collect and process the personal data of users of our website to communicate with them and inform them (for example when using our contact form and to respond to quotation requests), to manage and improve the website technically and to secure any vulnerabilities.
Legal principles for processing your personal data
We only process personal data if we are entitled to do so on the basis of a legal principle. In general, we are always entitled to process personal data if the data subject has given his/her consent (see Art. 6 (1) (a) and Art. 7 of the GDPR), if we are obliged to do so to satisfy contractual or pre-contractual duties (see Art. 6 (1) (b) of the GDPR), if we have to meet legal obligations (see Art. 6 (1) (c) of the GDPR) or if we are protecting our justified interests (see Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR).
The controller will process and save the data subject’s personal data only for the period required to achieve the aim of storing the data or for the specified period, if this period is specified in laws or regulations issued by the European directive and regulation legislator or another legislator, to which the controller is subject.
If the aim of the storage is no longer applicable or a storage period specified by the European directive and regulation legislator or another legislator, to which the controller is subject, elapses, the personal data will be routinely blocked or erased in compliance with the statutory regulations.

Furthermore, when exercising his/her right to data portability pursuant to Art. 20 (1) of the GDPR, the data subject has the right to ensure that the personal data are transferred direct from one controller to another controller if this is technically feasible and as long as the rights and freedoms of others are not adversely affected by this process.
