For our law office, the protection of privacy and personal information (i.e. any information relating to an identified or identifiable individual person, „Personal Data“) is an important concern to which we pay special attention within all our business processes. We process Personal Data only where permitted by applicable legal bases, in particular by European Data Protection Regulations and German Data Protection Law.
We process Personal Data in connection with maintaining our client relationships and providing our services to our clients or meeting any legal obligations and industry standards. We may share Personal Data with third parties (e.g. banks, lawyers, tax consultants, service providers) to the extent necessary within the context of rendering of our services or the safeguarding or the defending of legitimate interests or the meeting of legal requirements or if you have explicitly approved such sharing.
We store Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which the data was collected or to fulfil legal obligations. Afterwards we will delete your Personal Data.
We maintain appropriate technical and organizational security safeguards designed to protect your Personal Data against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure, or use. Please note that data transmission over the internet (e.g. when communicating via e-mail) may have security vulnerabilities. A full protection of data against access by third parties cannot be guaranteed.
The rights of all persons concerned under applicable data protection laws and regulations may include the rights of information, of having Personal Data corrected, erased or blocked, the right to restrict the processing of Personal Data as well as the right to data portability, the right to withdraw consent at any time where your Personal Data is processed on the basis of your consent (without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal), and the right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority.
Upon your written request we will be pleased to inform you about your Personal Data that we have stored.
