Who am I?
I am Marcela Sariego and I am a freelance journalist and translator of English into Spanish. I am based in the UK at 123 Fotheringham Road, London EN1 1QD, UK. This Privacy Notice outlines how I protect and use the information you provide me when you use my website and services.

You may contact me in my capacity as Data Controller of the data under my powers, duties and liabilities in accordance with General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679, via email:

What personal data do I collect?
Visitors to my website are not obliged to provide personal data.

I will collect personal data from and about you when you contact me regarding my services, when you complete the contact form on this website or make an enquiry.

Personal data collected may include your name, postal address, email address, telephone number and any other personal data revealed by you in documents you provide.

Why do I process your personal data?
My legal basis for processing your data is to perform the services you request, to take necessary steps prior to fulfilling your request and to comply with legal requirements.

I do not use your personal data for marketing purposes, nor do I disclose it to unauthorised third parties.

Who else may have access to your personal data?
I process all data on password-protected computers and data is not accessible by third parties.

I do not share your personal data with third parties without your prior approval. I do not sell, lease or distribute your personal data to third parties unless I am required by law to do so.

If I outsource a text containing personal data for revision by a colleague, I will make sure that the colleague in question is also GDPR-compliant and ask them to process the document accordingly.

For administrative purposes, other parties, including the providers of my website and email hosting services, may have access to your personal data. All these parties are also compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation or, in the case of US companies, are self-certified under the US Privacy Shield framework.

How do I store the personal data?
Data I collect from you is stored locally in a secure manner. I do not use cloud storage unless by your prior approval, e.g. for sharing files via Dropbox. I take reasonable and feasible security measures to protect and back up your data.

How long do I keep your personal data?
I will keep your personal data for 6 years unless you ask me to delete or remove it sooner. Should you ask me to delete documents before the 6-year period has expired, I cannot be held responsible for queries or claims relating to the content, as I have no way of verifying the accuracy of the original content.

Do you have the right to access your personal data?
You may contact me at any time to request a copy of your personal data, or to ask me to rectify or remove the information I hold. I will take action without undue delay and in any event within one month of receipt of the request.

Do you have the right to lodge a complaint?
If you have any concerns about how I process your personal data, please contact me. You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in the UK (the Information Commissioner’s Office, or ICO) or in the country where you live.
