Website Privacy Statement
What information do we collect?
At our website, we may collect both Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information from you. We collect Personally Identifiable Information from you, the Visitor (also bona fide Visitor), when you fill out our Contact Form. When contacting us through our Contact Form, you will be asked to enter your name, e-mail address and country of residence. Our Contact Form also records YOUR IP address and technical info about YOUR browser. We also collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information — data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual. Some examples of Non-Personally Identifiable Information include your IP address, the type of browser software you use when visiting our site, the date and time you visit our site and what pages you viewed when visiting our site. We may collect, use, transfer, and disclose such non-personally identifiable information for any purpose.
What do we use your information for?
Any of the Personally Identifiable Information we collect from you may be used in one of the following ways:
1. To process information transactions
The email address you provide for contacting us may be used by us to send you information pertaining to your contact. Except as stated in paragraph 09 below, we DO NOT sell, trade, rent, or otherwise share or disclose for any purposes the Personally Identifiable Information that we collect. However, if we establish that you are a SCAMMER of the kind listed in this Directory, all data collected on our website pertaining to you will be used to expose your identity and activities.
2. To send periodic emails
If at any time we send out information emails, we will include detailed unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of each email. Should you unsubscribe, your data will be erased from our records. We may hire other companies to perform certain functions, such as mailing communications or sending email messages. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the Personally Identifiable Information they need to complete the task (i.e., your name, email and country), and those companies will be prohibited from using such Personally Identifiable Information for any other purpose.
How do we protect your information?
We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your Personally Identifiable Information when you enter and submit your personal information. Even though we are committed to protecting the security of your Personally Identifiable Information, no one, including us, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. Your use of our site and services is entirely at your own risk. Note, however, that if you contact us by third-party email services, we cannot guarantee the safety of your Personally Identifiable Information while in transit through the Internet.
Corresponding with us?
All correspondence with the TRANSLATOR SCAMMERS INTELLIGENCE GROUP is considered a matter of record. It is, however, our policy that messages and other communications of a threatening nature are to be publicly posted.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
No! We are not in the business of disclosing information about our visitors and users. Your information, whether public or private, will not be sold, rented, traded, exchanged, transferred, or given to any outside parties or individuals for any reason whatsoever. Not if you are a scammer, that is!
Do we disclose information about scammers?
Yes! The purpose of the TRANSLATOR SCAMMERS INTELLIGENCE GROUP and of this website is to denounce, expose, and fight translator scammers, and to harm, disrupt, and destroy the scammers' impersonation of legitimate translators and the theft of their professional credentials, by publicly exposing the scammers' true, fake or hijacked names, their affiliations to their façade companies, their true or fake addresses, their email addresses, their phone numbers, their fake CVs and their mode of operation! We will do all this in the most relentless, merciless, and ruthless ways possible. And, if this includes the public exposure of any of the scammer's personal data relevant (or not) to their operation, it's just too bad! We will not warrant any privacy protection to scammers and impersonators of the kind listed in our Directory, because they are, in fact, ruthlessly violating the personal and professional privacy of their victims and misleading their "clients".
Do we disclose information from sources exposing the scammers?
Never! We consider any correspondence and identifiable data belonging to the party who sends us details in good faith exposing scammers or providing information about scammers and their practices FULLY CONFIDENCIAL. Such information and data will be protected and hidden from all public documents published by us to expose the scammers. Note, however, that we DO NOT tolerate undocumented and tortuous naming and shaming of any nature against anyone NOT listed in our Directory.
