Data processing for the provision of contractual services
You can send us requests for mandates or for the commissioning of other contractual services offered by us via our website and our contact details stored there. If personal data is transmitted to us in this way or in any other way in connection with enquiries about mandates/commissions, we process your data for the purpose of responding to your enquiries and carrying out the mandate. For this purpose, we require your complete name and address data as well as information for the assertion or defence of your rights. We also require name and address data for invoicing purposes. In order to be able to communicate with you within the scope of the mandate, we also need at least your telephone number. Without this data, it is not possible to carry out the contractual relationship. If you provide further data, we will also use this for the aforementioned purposes, but this is not necessary for the conclusion of the contract.
In the case of suppliers/service providers, we process the personal data provided by them in this way or in another way for the purpose of ordering and obtaining services on our part and to pay for the services provided. For this purpose, we require the name, address data and account data. Depending on the service/contract, we may also require additional data, which we will then explain on a case-by-case basis.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Data processing for communication with you
We process the communication data provided by you (name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, fax, names of contact persons) in order to be able to contact you, communicate with you and answer your enquiries. Personal data that you provide to us will only be processed for correspondence and answering your enquiries or only for the purpose for which you have provided us with the data.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the performance of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
Data processing for applications
You can send us applications for jobs in our law firm via our websites and the contact data provided there. Insofar as personal data is transferred to us by you in this way or in any other way during applications, we process your data for the purpose of examining, processing and responding to your application and, if necessary, preparing the employment relationship.
The basis for the data processing is Art. 88 GDPR, § 26 para. 1 BDSG (new) which allows the processing of data for the purpose of deciding on the justification, for the establishment as well as for the performance of employment relationships.
Each time our website is accessed, usage data is transmitted by the respective Internet browser and stored in log files, the so-called server log files. The stored data records contain the following data: Date and time of server request, name of the page accessed, IP address, referrer URL (origin URL from which you came to the web pages), the amount of data transferred, as well as product and version information of the browser used and the operating system of your PC. The IP addresses of the users are deleted or anonymised after use. No other evaluation of the data takes place, except for statistical purposes and then always in anonymised form. No personal “surf profiles” or similar are created or processed.
The data processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data to safeguard the legitimate interests of the data controller, provided that the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Our interest lies in ensuring data security on the website and in optimising our web offering.
We may use so-called cookies on our website, among other things to be able to offer you website-specific services, to recognize you when you visit our website again, and/or to adapt our offer to your personal preferences.
Cookies are small text files that are stored on a visitor’s computer and contain data on the respective user in order to enable access to various functions. A distinction is made between session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and permanent cookies, which are stored beyond the individual session. Both session cookies and persistent cookies may be used on our website. A session cookie is temporarily stored on your computer as you navigate through the site. A session cookie is deleted as soon as you close your Internet browser or as soon as your session has expired after a certain period of time. A persistent cookie remains on your computer until it is deleted. The storage of a cookie ensures that you do not have to repeatedly enter your personal settings and preferences every time you visit our website. This saves you time and makes using our website more convenient for you.
We may work with third parties on some of our websites and therefore, when you visit such a website, cookies from partner companies may also be stored on your hard drive (third-party cookies). We inform you below about the use of such cookies and the scope of the data collected in each case.
We use necessary cookies, which are required to enable the performance of the services we are obliged to provide or to ensure the functionality of our services. The data processing in this respect is then based on Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures, or based on Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data to safeguard the legitimate interests of the data controller, provided that the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail.
We may obtain your consent for the use of other, unnecessary cookies. The data processing is then carried out on the basis of your consent in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR. You can revoke your consent at any time. The legality of the data processing already carried out remains unaffected by the revocation.
Data processing for the fulfilment of legal obligations
In addition, we process your data to fulfil legal obligations (e.g. regulatory requirements, commercial and tax storage and proof obligations). For example, we may store a copy of your ID in order to prove your identity and comply with the provisions of the GWG.
The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR, which permits processing to fulfil a legal obligation.
Categories of recipients of personal data
Your mandate and communication data will be forwarded to the responsible lawyer or employee within our law firm in order to answer your enquiries, for communication purposes or to carry out the mandate/ commission. The basis for this is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. b GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a contract or pre-contractual measures.
In the case of job applications, the data is also forwarded to the unit responsible for this and the relevant employees within our firm. The basis for this is Art. 88 GDPR, § 26 para. 1 BDSG which permits the processing of data for the decision on the establishment, for the establishment as well as for the implementation of employment relationships.
Your personal data will only be disclosed or otherwise transferred to third parties outside our law firm if this is necessary for the purpose of processing the mandate or billing or if you have given your prior consent or if there is a legal basis for the disclosure. In the course of processing your mandate, your data will be disclosed to your opponents and their representatives, to your potential contractual partners and their representatives as well as to courts or authorities, e.g. for the purpose of notification of representation, contract negotiation and/or assertion or exercise of defense of your claims. The attorney-client privilege remains unaffected. Insofar as data subject to legal professional privilege is involved, it will only be disclosed to third parties in consultation with you.
We disclose personal data to third parties who process personal data on their own responsibility (so-called controllers, cf. Art. 4 para. 7 GDPR), such as postal and delivery services, house bank, tax advisor/auditor or authorities within the scope of legal permissibility and necessity.
Insofar as we use the services of third parties for the implementation and handling of processing operations, the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation shall be complied with.
Duration of data storage
In principle, we delete your data as soon as it is no longer required for the above-mentioned purposes, unless the temporary storage is still necessary due to statutory obligations to provide evidence and to store data. For example, a statutory retention period of six years applies to the storage of files and personal data collected by us for mandates (§ 50 para. 1 BRAO). Furthermore, there are storage periods of up to ten years for tax documents in accordance with § 147 AO. In addition, we retain your data for the period during which claims can be asserted against our law firm (statutory limitation period of three or up to thirty years).
Your personal data will be transmitted securely by us through encryption. We use the coding system SSL (Secure Socket Layer). Furthermore, we secure our websites and other systems by technical and organizational measures against loss, destruction, access, alteration or distribution of your data by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technical developments. We expressly point out that data transmission on the Internet can have security gaps and cannot be completely protected against access by third parties, which applies in particular and especially when communicating by e-mail.
Online presence in other social networks
We have set up online presences in various social networks to communicate with you, interested parties and clients and to inform them about our services and current offers. In addition to our interaction with you, the social networks process data from visitors to their websites for the purpose of market research and advertising, which means that from the respective visit or usage behavior and the preferences and interests of a visitor derived from this, a user profile may be created by the respective operator of the social network. Such user profiles can be used, among other things, to display advertisements individually adapted to the respective user profile within the respective social network and possibly on other websites. Cookies may be stored on visitors’ devices, which can be used to collect data on user behavior. The collection of this data can also be realized across several browsers and/or end devices, especially in the case of logged-in members of the respective social network. Even if a visitor does not have a profile with the respective social network, it cannot be ruled out that personal data on this visitor will be stored by visiting the respective website.
Requests for information regarding the data stored via our online presences in social networks or the assertion of other data subject rights in this regard can be directed to the provider of the respective service. Only the providers of the social networks have access to the respective data stored there and can provide the corresponding information, etc. With regard to the purpose and scope of data processing by the various social networks, we refer additionally to their respective data protection notices and the respective contact options:
LinkedIn Ireland Unlimited Company
Dublin 2, Ireland
The processing of data in the context of our online presences in social networks takes place – insofar as there is a responsibility under data protection law on our part – on the basis of our legitimate interest in effective information and direct communication with interested parties and customers of our company. The basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR, which permits the processing of data to protect the legitimate interests of the controller, provided that the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not prevail. Our interest lies in providing content and communicating with users of the respective social networks and in improving the reach and effectiveness of our posts.
