German-English Contract Translation

Original German contract

English translation – an excerpt from a German contract:

Control measures and authorization
Principal has the right to monitor compliance with the legal regulations on data protection and/or compliance with the contractual provisions agreed between the parties and/or compliance with the instructions of Principal by Agent at any time to the extent necessary. The Principal’s data protection officer, the data protection oversight authorities having jurisdiction over the Principal or any representatives of the data protection oversight authorities, or someone else hired by the Principal and by profession obligated to maintain confidentiality, shall carry out the first control measures and the regular controls for Principal. At the reasonable discretion of Principal (§ 315 of the German Civil Code), these controls can be replaced by Agent’s voluntary self-disclosure or by attestations verified by Agent and certifications by third parties (for example, data protection audit, TÜV/ISO certification). These can also be the attestations of the company’s own data privacy officer, provided that Agent is able to furnish proof that the data privacy officer is sufficiently qualified. The costs of such attestations or certifications are borne by Agent. If, at the Principal’s reasonable discretion, the Principal does conduct an on-site audit of Agent, then Agent provides – at its own expense – Principal with employees qualified to provide information. Principal bears the costs of any travel and personnel costs as well as any third-party fees that it incurs.

Original German advertising text

English translation – an excerpt from an advertising text:

Whether to roam across faraway Alaska in sleds drawn by huskies and to plunge into the silent veils of light shed by the Aurora Borealis; or to experience the legendary Boi Bumba Festival right in the middle of the rainforest on the banks of the Amazon in Parintins; or to listen to the song of humpback whales while diving at Silver Bank, or to get to the bottom of life while sitting around a campfire with an Indian sadhu.
