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, email ad­­dress, and tele­phone num­ber.


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 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, XTRF Man­age­ment Sys­tems, and Kilgray. 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 email 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 Word­ can be col­lect­ed and stored by Word­’s servers. By us­ing the Site, you con­sent to the col­lec­tion, dis­clo­sure, stor­age, and use of your per­son­al in­for­ma­tion by Word­ in ac­­cor­­dance with the Word­Press Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy avail­able at https://word­­va­cy.

Da­ta trans­mis­sion o­ver the In­ter­net can be sub­ject to se­cu­ri­ty vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties. Tar­get Lan­guages can­not there­fore guar­an­tee com­plete pro­tec­­tion against ac­cess by third par­ties.


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 ren­der 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 they vis­it the site.

In­for­ma­tion cached 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 about 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.

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.

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 email ad­­dress must be en­tered.
