Purpose of the Data Processing
We process personal data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter “GDPR”) which is necessary to process the relevant order and to satisfy the obligations under the mandate agreement, particularly for our consultancy activities, correspondence and invoicing. This includes title, first name, last name, a valid email address, street address, phone number (landline and/or mobile), account information. 

We can process personal data for advertising our own services; this is a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. You can object to this processing at any time.

If you make use of your right of objection, we save the address data mentioned in order to implement your objection in a "blocking list". If you wish your data to be completely deleted, we would like to point out that in the event of a new collection of your data, your objection may not be known and your data may again be processed for advertising purposes.

Erasure of Data
The personal data collected will be stored until the statutory retention periods (inter alia, under the German Commercial Code, hereinafter "HGB”, the German Penal Code, hereinafter “StGB”, or the German Tax Code, hereinafter “AO”)expire and will then be deleted unless you have consented to retention beyond this period in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. a GDPR or if the purpose of data processing has not yet ceased to apply; in these cases, the personal data will be locked until the purpose ceases to exist and will then be deleted.

For attorneys, the statutory retention requirement is six years after the end of the calendar year in which the mandate ended.

Categories of Recipients
Your personal data will be transferred to third parties to the extent necessary to implement the order (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. b GDPR). This includes transfer to parties to proceedings and their representatives as well as to courts and governmental authorities to assert and defend your rights.

Our professional confidentiality obligation of course remains unaffected. To the extent that data is subject to the confidentiality obligation, data will only be transferred to third parties upon prior consultation with you.

The delivery of our e-mail newsletter is partly carried out by CleverReach GmbH & Co. KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede ("CleverReach"). CleverReach is a service provider bound by instructions who is obliged to comply with data protection regulations and may not use the data for any other purpose.

Your Rights as a Data Subject
Subject to certain conditions, you have the right to receive information free of charge concerning the personal data stored by us, to have incorrect data rectified and to demand the erasure, restriction of processing and portability of your personal data. 

You can object to the use of your data for direct marketing purposes at any time with effect for the future; you may also object to the use of the data based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e or f GDPR for reasons relating to your particular situation at any time with effect for the future, without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs. 

However, in some cases we are not allowed to delete user data completely due to statutory retention requirements. To the extent that we process data based on your consent, you may withdraw the consent at any time with effect for the future.

We also wish to refer you to your right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. The competent supervisory authority for us is the State Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information (Landesdatenschutzbeauftragter) in Baden-Württemberg, Königstraße 10a, 70173 Stuttgart.
