Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting our website.

We take protecting your private and personal sphere seriously. As such, we strictly adhere to the legal requirements concerning the gathering, processing and use of your personal data.

This Privacy Policy provides some information on how we handle your personal data and on the confidentiality that we apply when we process your data. LEaF Translations is responsible for the collation, processing and utilisation of your personal data.

Anonymous data collection

You can visit our website without telling us who you are.

In this case, we save only access data with no reference to specific persons – for example the name of your internet service provider, the website that directed you to our website, and the name of the file requested. This information is at most used for statistical purposes so that we can improve our service. You remain anonymous as an individual user.

Gathering, processing and using personal data

Personal data refers to information about your identity, e.g. your name, address, email address, telephone number, IP data.

Personal data is only gathered if you provide it so that we can answer an enquiry.

By doing so, you are agreeing to LEaF Translations automatically saving and processing the personal data that you provide (name, address, email address, telephone number etc.) and the data associated with the business relationship (e.g. order date, documents provided/supplied, quantity, price, delivery dates, payment and dunning data) in line with the stipulations of the applicable version of the Data Protection Act for the purposes of fulfilling the contract and for LEaF Translations’ own advertising purposes.

You are entitled to revoke your agreement to the gathering, processing and use of your personal data – subject to legal retention requirements – at any time.

Disclosure of personal data

We do not pass your data, including your address and email address, on to third parties. Passing the data on to third parties for the purposes of address trading is expressly forbidden.


Our website uses so-called “cookies”, which serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure – for example by making our platform quicker to navigate. In addition, cookies allow us to ascertain the regularity with which pages are visited and the general navigation.

By using our website, you agree to our use of cookies.

We would like to point out that some of these cookies are passed from our server onto your system; so-called “session cookies” or “permanent cookies”. “Session cookies” are automatically deleted by your hard drive. You can refuse to accept permanent cookies by changing your browser settings.

To find out more, please consult the instructions for your browser. Please note, however, that doing so may limit the functionality of some parts of our website.

Use of Google Analytics

This website utilises Google Analytics – a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”).

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”; text files, which are saved on your computer and allow for an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. It should be noted that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIP()”, and as such IP addresses are only processed in shortened form to prevent them being directly linked to a particular individual. Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities for the website operator, and to provide further services related to the use of the website and the Internet in general. Google will also transfer this information to third parties in certain cases, insofar as this is legally prescribed or these third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Google will never connect your IP address to other data from Google.

You can prevent the installation of cookies through a setting on your web browser software. However, we would like to point out that if you turn off cookies, you will not be able to use all of the functions of this website to their full extent.

In addition, you can prevent the gathering of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your usage of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google. To do so, download and install the browser plugin from the following page:

Facebook Conversion Tracking

We use “Facebook Pixel” on our website.

If you have been directed to our website as a result of clicking on our Facebook ad, so-called conversion tracking will have been activated by placing a cookie on your device. Conversion tracking means that your user behaviour and clicks after clicking on a Facebook ad are tracked and analysed in order to optimise our website and future ads for all users. The information generated is anonymous and thus cannot be allocated to individual users. Facebook saves this data; we do not know how this data is then processed. Please consult Facebook’s Privacy Policy for further information:

Insofar as we provide links on our website to the websites of third parties, including the websites of social networks, we do not accept any liability for the correctness or completeness of the contents of these websites, nor for their data security.

As we have no influence on the current and future design and contents of the linked websites, nor on the adherence of third parties to the legal data protection requirements, we are not responsible for the contents of the linked sites and we do not take ownership of these contents. As such, you should check the data protection notices provided on these websites individually.

Our data protection notice does not apply to these external websites.

Right to information

You have a permanent right of information regarding the data that is saved that concerns you; you also have a right of correction, blocking and – subject to legal retention regulations – deletion for this data.

Further information and contact details

Please contact us should you have any further questions regarding the gathering, processing and use of your personal data. The same applies to information, deletion and notification requests regarding your personal data and for the revocation of permissions.
