CONFIDENTIALITY & SECURITY
Translators shall take all reasonable measures to safeguard
the confidentiality of documents both in electronic format
and hard copy which is sent to them to quote for or to start
work on a project.
Translators shall maintain the confidentiality of all documents
sent to them for a project including documents for translation,
reference materials and GEM administrative documentation
unless authority is otherwise given in writing.
Translators should not seek to gain from any confidential
information learned or disclosed to them during the project
and should not seek to gain from the passing on to a third
party of any confidential information learned or disclosed
during a project.
11. Translators shall be willing to sign separate a Non-Disclosure
Agreement for a project if reasonably requested to do so.
Translators shall submit invoices for projects on the date
of completion or very soon after the completion of a project.
All invoices should contain the Purchase Order Number of
the project, the translators name and full contact details,
the amount agreed, in the currency agreed and the date of
issue of the invoice. GEM reserves the right not to accept
responsibility for payment of invoices submitted 1 month
or more from the date of delivery of the completed project
without good reason or for invoices which do not contain
the correct information.
Payment queries should quote the Purchase Order Number of
the project and should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Should a payment error occur such as a payment not being
issued at the correct time or an incorrect amount being paid
then translators shall provide GEM with the details of any
suspected error and shall give GEM a reasonable amount of
time in which to investigate, bearing in mind most accounting
is carried out at the end of each month.
Translators shall be paid 30 days from the end of the month
in which the invoice is submitted, without exception.
These Terms and Conditions shall be considered as a Contract,
made in the UK and according to Scots Law and subject to
the exclusive jurisdiction of the Scottish Courts.
