The following information refers exclusively to the processing of personal data concerning ModernMT customers and parties subject to data processing pursuant to article 4 (1) of the Regulation; however, any personal data potentially contained in documents sent to ModernMT for machine translation with regard to which the customer acts as an independent data controller is excluded under this policy.
