Which data do we store?

We store the data we need to provide you with our products or services. This data includes:

  • your name, contact information and payment details if you are registered for one of our training courses or have requested translation or editing services;
  • your name and e-mail address if you have indicated that you wish to receive our digital newsletter CNTXT;

We only save relevant data and only for as long as strictly necessary. Your personal details will be handled carefully and confidentially.

Of course we will not sell any of your personal details.
