What is it about?

This privacy policy meets the legal requirements for transparency in the processing of personal data. This is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, e-mail address, IP address or user behavior when visiting a website. Information for which we cannot (or only with disproportionate effort) establish a connection to your person, e.g. through anonymization, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. the collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis and a defined purpose.

Stored personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no legitimate reasons for further storage of the data. We will inform you about the specific storage periods or criteria for storage in the individual processing operations. Irrespective of this, we store your personal data in individual cases for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and in the event of statutory retention obligations.

Who receives my data?

We only pass on your personal data that we process on our website to third parties if this is necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes and is covered by the legal basis (e.g. consent or protection of legitimate interests) in individual cases. In addition, in individual cases we pass on personal data to third parties if this serves the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims. Possible recipients may then be, for example, law enforcement authorities, lawyers, auditors, courts, etc.

Insofar as we use service providers for the operation of our website who process personal data on our behalf as part of order processing in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR, they may be recipients of your personal data. You can find more information on the use of processors and web services in the overview of the individual processing operations.

You will receive your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or we will transmit the data directly to another controller if this is technically feasible.
  • Objection pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR to the processing of your personal data, insofar as this is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e, f GDPR and there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising.

  • Name and URL of the retrieved file
  • Website from which the access was made (referrer URL)
  • Browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer, as well as the name of your access provider

Our website is not hosted by us, but by a service provider who processes the aforementioned data on our behalf in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.

Purpose and legal basis
The processing is carried out to safeguard our overriding legitimate interest in displaying our website and ensuring security and stability on the basis of Art. 6 para. lit. f GDPR. The collection of data and storage in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. There is no right to object to the processing due to the exception under Art. 21 para. 1 GDPR. Insofar as further storage of the log files is required by law, the processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. There is no legal or contractual obligation to provide the data, but it is not technically possible to access our website without providing the data.

Storage duration
The aforementioned data is stored for the duration of the website display and, for technical reasons, for a maximum of 7 days.

Data processing for inquiries and in client relationships

Type and scope of processing
If you contact us or instruct us to provide legal services, the personal data you provide will be processed for the purpose of providing our advisory or representation services. Contact data such as addresses, e-mail addresses or telephone numbers are processed in particular for the purpose of contacting you or third parties. We store and process the data in a special cloud-based law firm management software. We have concluded an agreement with the provider for the processing of personal data on our behalf in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR and have also ensured that the provider has suitable technical and organizational measures in place to protect your data.

Purpose and legal basis
In particular, insofar as personal data of our clients or contact persons are concerned, the processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of fulfilling a contract or providing pre-contractual measures. Personal data of third parties, for example opposing parties, opposing lawyers or service providers are processed on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. We would like to point out that the right to erasure described above pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR may be restricted or excluded for personal data processed for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims (Art. 17 para. 3 lit. e GDPR).

Storage period
The data processed for the purposes of client processing will be processed for the duration of the client relationship and subsequently for the duration of statutory retention periods. As a rule, reference files are stored for six years (§ 50 (1) BRAO); longer retention periods may apply to other documents.
