III. Use of personal data

A. For managing individual clients

In order to manage individual clients, we collect, store and process electronically the data of any per-sons involved which you have made available to us and which are necessary for the performance of the respective tasks pursuant to Article 6 (1) (a) and (b) GDPR. These data include the names, contact details, address data as well as any task-related information relating to the content of the respective matter.
Service providers in countries like the USA, or in the Member States of the European Economic Area are subject to data protection which generally does not protect personal data to the same extent as in the Member States of the European Union. For that reason, data are transferred to third countries outside the European Union/European Economic Area only on condition that

  1. you have granted us your explicit consent to do so in accordance with Article 6 (1) (a) GDPR or
  2. that
    • such transfer is necessary, pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, for the establishment, exer-cise or defence of legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an over-riding legitimate interest in your data not being transferred,
    • • there is a legal obligation on us to transfer such data, pursuant to Article 6 (1) (c) GDPR, or
    • • this is permitted by law and is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party, pursuant to Article 6 (1) (b) GDPR,

    and, insofar as your data are processed in a country which is not acknowledged as having as a high level of data protection as the European Union, we safeguard by means of contractual arrangements or other generally accepted instruments that your personal data are adequately protected.

B. Visiting our website

Our website can generally be used without entering personal data. If and insofar as personal data are collected on our website (e.g. name, address or email addresses), this is always on a voluntary basis, as far as possible, and purely to provide the web pages, to enable the provision of information about our undertaking or to enable you to contact us (Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR). No such data will be disclosed to third parties without your express consent.

Your attention is drawn to the fact that cookies (session cookies) are used on our website. Use of our website is also possible without cookies.

IV. Your rights

You have the right:

  • under Article 15 GDPR to obtain information from us concerning your personal data pro-cessed by us. In particular, you may demand information about the purposes of the pro-cessing, the categories of personal data concerned, the recipients or categories of recipients to whom the personal data have been or will be disclosed, where possible the envisaged du-ration of storage, the existence of the right to rectification or erasure or restriction of pro-cessing of personal data or to object to such processing, the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, the source of your data, where they are not collected by us, and about the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and where relevant about the logic involved as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences of such processing for you;
  • under Article 16 GDPR to demand the rectification of inaccurate personal data or the comple-tion of incomplete personal data stored by us;
  • under Article 17 GDPR to demand the erasure of your personal data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;
  • under Article 18 GDPR to demand restriction of processing of your personal data, if the accu-racy of the data is contested by you, the processing is unlawful but you oppose the erasure, we no longer need the data but require them for the establishment, exercise or defence of le-gal claims, or you have objected to processing under Article 21 GDPR;
  • under Article 20 GDPR to receive, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable for-mat, your personal data which you have provided to us, or to demand that said data be transmitted to another controller, where technically feasible;
  • under Article 7 (3) GDPR to withdraw at any time the consent you have granted to us. This has the consequence that we are no longer permitted to continue the data processing that was based on that consent; and
  • under Article 77 GDPR to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. To do so, you can normally approach the supervisory authority for your habitual place of residence, place of work or for our law firm.

V. Objection to processing of your personal data

If and insofar as your personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR, you have the right, pursuant to Article 21 GDPR, to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, or to the processing of your per-sonal data for direct marketing purposes. In the latter case, you have a general right to object that is implemented by us without a special situation having to be specified.
