COVID-19 UPDATE: We are fully operational and here to support your business with translation and interpreting projects as usual.

Security

Security is as important to us as it is to you. Your data, documents and translation memories are handled with the care they deserve, given how valuable they are to your business.

Tracks neon light

We operate in a mainly cloud-based environment in which safeguarding your data is an absolute priority. We can advise your organisation on how to securely work with sensitive information in multiple languages.

There are five pillars we strive to uphold based on what our partners and customers value the most: quality, security, privacy, compliance and transparency.

Information security and IT infrastructure

ISO 27001

Security is top of mind in everything we do. Our core IT infrastructure is based on the ISO 27001 information security standard, and we’re currently working on obtaining full certification.

The language industry is seeing rapid change, and agile development is essential in providing new services. We’ve combined stable basic processes with agile development to meet the needs of our fast-changing industry.

In this rapidly developing environment with new technologies being introduced faster than ever, information security is vital. Meeting customer requirements as well as securing personal data and corporate information have become our number one priority when processing data. We have always focused on providing high security solutions for our customers. We have a high basic security level, and together with our customers we’ve developed turnkey solutions for when higher security levels are required.

Rights to privacy

Privacy is a central factor in gaining and maintaining trust. We take our customers’ rights to privacy seriously and we have therefore:

  • A Rights of the Data Subject form on our website where an individual can exercise their rights concerning their personal data in accordance with GDPR.
  • Our Internal Privacy Policy for employees to ensure that employees know how we may handle personal data in the organisation.
  • Our Information Security Policy and Guidelines for Suppliers to ensure that our suppliers handle the customer data with which they are entrusted with a high level of security.
  • Make sure that all employees and all language vendors who process personal data for Semantix have signed NDAs.

Compliance

To build trust it’s necessary to make sure that you meet the requirements for accepted practices, legislation, prescribed rules and regulations. This work should be continuous, and below are some of the aspects that are part of our compliance process. 

  • Signing Data Processing Agreements (and in many cases also Model Clauses) with suppliers who process personal data for Semantix to ensure that the requirements of the GDPR are also passed on to our subprocessors.
  • Reviewing internal procedures to check for compliance with GDPR, e.g. procedures about:
    • How to make a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA).
    • How to notify the supervisory authority in case of a breach.
  • Completing an annual GDPR awareness campaign and information security training for all employees.
  • Performing internal and external audits related to our management system.

Transparency

Because we believe that compliance should be a lot more than setting up legal agreements, we work actively with being transparent. Transparency at Semantix means that we do our best to make as much information as possible about how we protect those of your data that are required for collaboration and decision-making easily available to all our customers, suppliers and partners.

Since we want to show you how we protect your data in a transparent manner, we have made available our Privacy Policy, our Cookie Policy and our General Terms and Conditions for Translation Services.
