PRIVACY POLICY

Himalayan Translations Privacy Policy

In order to protect and secure any personal data that a customer provides during a visit to our website, requests information or makes use of our products or services by placing orders for translation, location or proofreading on our website. This Privacy Policy was developed to allow every visitor or user to understand what information we are collecting and how we are using it.

Please review this policy. If you have any questions, please contact our customer service department for further explanation.

 

The Types of Information We Collect

 

We collect two types of information as visitors and/or users access our website.

  1. We track our site visits, including the number of persons that visit our site, the pages that they visit, the times of the day, the amount of time they spend on each page and the browsers used to access our site. Anonymous information: This tracking does not collect any personal information. We use the information only to analyze and improve the efficiency of our website, as we see it necessary.

  2. Personal Information: When we request more information from visitors to our site, they usually give their names and an e-mail address. It’s the same if you decide to sign up for our newsletter.

When a visitor places an order for any of our services, s/he becomes a client. In order to serve that client, we must have the following information:

  • Full Name

  • Address

  • Email Address

  • Contact Telephone Number

  • Company Name and Address if the client is acting on behalf of an organizations for which s/he works.

Protection of Personal Information

 

We use all industry standard protection methods for personal information provided by customers, including proper physical access controls and internet firewalls. When using a single web-based retail organization, customers have the same protection.

In order to communicate with our customers and to give additional information about our goods and services, we collect information. The Customer may, at any time, opt-out procedures found in every post and our Newsletter for additional information from us.

If a customer wants to be removed completely from our system, this can be done to our customer service service department on request. All personal details are then permanently removed from our system.

Sale or Transfer of Personal Information

 

Himalayan Translations does not distribute or transfer personal information of its clients to any third party. This includes selling, leasing, sharing or trading in any way.

There is no personally identifiable information that is required from visitors to our site unless that visitor volunteers to send us mails. We request names and e-mail addresses in such cases. Again, we do not share or distribute this information with third parties.

Protection of Financial Information

 

In paying for ordered services, client must submit their payment/financial information. This will normally include credit or debit card information. Clients may also pay through PayPal.

We do not enter any financial information into our database. It is encrypted and handled by a third-party payment processor. This processor is SSL-certified and is the same processor used by many major online retail websites.

If a client wishes to set up a credit account with us for long-term use and billing, again, this information is held by our third-party processor, not by us in any data base on our site.

To date, there has never been a breach of this data.

 

Identity Verification

 

Sometimes a bank is asked to verify information of a customer before approving a transaction. In this case, we will immediately notify the customer and ask for information from us. This is usually in the form of a photo ID. If such a check has been requested we will immediately notify you, so you can contact us by e-mail attachment, screen shot or fax.

Cookies

 

Cookies are small pieces of data sent to your hard drive, which show that you visited our site and the pages you visited. We do not use cookies to collect your or your personal data. You can choose cookies free; however, if you do, you may not have a full user experience and some links are difficult to access.

WE use cookies only for the purpose of analyzing and improving our website.

 

Third Party Website Links

 

Occasionally, a visitor may see a link to another website on our site. These links are provided because we believe there may be information of value or use to our visitors and clients.

Please understand that you leave the himalayan website and will no longer be protected by our privacy policy once you click any of these third party links. The privacy policy of this website is your responsibility, since this is the one in effect when you visit and browse this website. Our policies are effective for you once you return to the Himalayan translation site.

Changing this Privacy Policy

 

Our policy provisions also change as privacy laws change. All existing law is still up-to-date. We will announce and publish these changes when we make a change to this Privacy Policy. The user must read and be effective as soon as we publish any changes we introduce.
