Getrouw Vertalingen is committed to treating your personal data with due care. Personal data are processed and collected only if needed for the services that you require and/or with your express consent.
Processing is undertaken by:

Company: Getrouw Vertalingen

Proprietor: R.R. Getrouw

Address: Anne Frankstraat 222 – 1011 MP  Amsterdam, the Netherlands

I work in compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (‘GDPR’) and collect personal data for which I, or my client as controller, have a legitimate ground for processing.

I have appropriate technical and organisational measures in place to secure your personal data. I aim to keep all measures up to date in order to secure your personal data in the right manner.

An obligation to safeguard your personal data will be imposed on any third party that I may hire.

I do not share your personal party outside the EEA unless I am required to do so by law or you have given your consent.

You may email me to exercise your rights as data subject. I will respond to your request as quickly as possible, but within four weeks at the latest, with an option to extend that period once for another four weeks.

What data do I process?

Your name, correspondence address, e-mail address and telephone number. In exceptional cases (sworn translations of personal documents) your date of birth or citizen’s identification number may also be processed. In that case, the legal basis for processing your data is the provision of services that you require or arrangements made that are necessary to comply with your request.

Data breach

If I discover that a data breach has occurred despite my best efforts to keep your personal data secure, I will promptly inform you.

Upon consultation with you, the data breach will be reported to the Dutch Data Protection Authority and the data subjects. If I am not the controller, I will assist you if the data breach is reported to the Dutch Data Protection Authority and any other data subject(s).

A data breach does not release you from your obligations under your agreement with me, unless you demonstrate or make it reasonably evident that the data breach is due to intent or gross negligence on my part.

Retention periods

I will not keep your personal data for any longer than is necessary to carry out and complete your assignment or request, unless I am required to do so by law. Data for the purpose of quotations are deleted after 60 days. Data for the preparation of interpreting assignments are deleted after one month. Data in relation to invoices are kept for seven years in order to comply with the tax records retention period.

Upon consultation with you, personal data in translations of a personal nature will be kept for a period of 12 months after completion of an assignment and will subsequently be deleted.


In addition to the general liability provisions of the General Conditions, should I fail to comply with the GDPR or with these general privacy conditions, I can be liable only for any direct loss arising from the failure to comply with those obligations. Direct loss never includes a fine imposed by the Dutch Data Protection Authority or a loss suffered by a data subject.  In addition, my liability will always be limited to the invoice amounts that you paid to me in the three months preceding the incident.
