Lifeline Language Services will never share any individual personal information provided to us outside of those directly involved in delivering your assignment, unless we have previously received your permission or unless ordered to do so by law. Information you provide to us is held within secure premises and is available only to our employees or, where required by the assignment, to the necessary partners.
“Partners” refers simply to service providers who are not direct employees of ours. Where you ask us, for example, to translate a document we may need to use one or more such partner(s). Any partner used will be professionally registered and will adhere to professional standards of data confidentiality, enforced by a legally-binding confidentiality agreement between them and ourselves. That means we trust them just the same as we would trust our own in-house team.
