Who I am

My website address is: Karen McMillan Tkaczyk provides freelance translation services to companies and individuals under the company name McMillan Translation LLC, which has its registered office in Lone Tree, Colorado, USA.

What personal data I collect and why I collect it

I collect the data necessary to run my business. I collect, store and use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • to issue quotes
  • to provide a translation or editing service as requested by you
  • to request a translation or proofreading service from you
  • or to comply with legal requirements.

Legal Grounds

The legal basis for processing your data is to perform the translation or editing services you request or to take necessary steps prior to fulfilling that request (“performance of a contract”), which may involve outsourcing your request to another translator/proofreader. This basis also applies if you provide me with a service.

How long will I keep your personal data?

I will always keep your personal data for the period for which we maintain interaction with you or your organization, and for the duration of our business relationship with you or your organization. You may at any time ask me to delete translations or personal data, but at that time I cannot be held responsible for queries or claims related to the content.

How do I store your personal data? What do I do with it?

Personal data collected may include your name, mailing address, email address, telephone number, VAT or EIN number, and other contact information including, but not limited to, Skype ID. Personal data may also include banking details, personal information on CVs or information on documents sent for the express purpose of translation or editing. All data is processed on password-protected computers, not accessible to third parties. I do not use your personal data for marketing purposes, nor do I disclose it to unauthorized third parties.

You may contact me at any time to ask me to remove your personal data from my records, or to delete translations, but from that time on I cannot be held responsible for queries or claims related to the content.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website. These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracing your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Your rights

You can request that I erase any personal data that I hold about you. This does not include any data I am obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes. You can request a copy of the personal data I hold about you. You are not required by law to provide your personal data to me but, if you don´t then we may not be able to provide you or your organization with services. If you object to the processing of your personal data, we will respect that choice in accordance with our legal obligations. If you would like to exercise any of your rights, please let me know by getting in touch using the contact details below.

How I protect your data

Your personal data will be accessible to the owner of McMillan Translation and, in certain specific cases, to certain authorized suppliers of McMillan Translation. McMillan Translation may share your personal data with its suppliers under a written agreement that commits the suppliers to appropriate safeguards in relation to the handling of your personal data (including in relation to maintaining confidentiality of your personal data and implementing appropriate technical and organizational security measures). McMillan Translation will take appropriate legal, organizational, and technical measures to protect your personal data consistent with applicable privacy and data security laws. Your data is stored on password-protected system.
