2.3 Contract fulfilment
In the fulfilment of our contract with you we process the following personal data:
The legal basis for our data processing is Article 6(1) (b) GDPR. Data is processed so as to be able to identify you as a client, to enable us to provide you with appropriate legal advice and represent you, to correspond with you, to issue invoices and assert and settle any claims.
Personal data gathered by us whilst acting for you will be saved until the statutory period during which lawyers are obliged to keep it has expired (6 and 10 years from the close of the calendar year in which we stop acting for you) and will then be deleted unless we are required under Article 6(1) (c) GDPR to keep it for longer than this for fiscal and commercial safekeeping and documentation reasons or unless you have consented to it being kept for a longer period of time pursuant to Article 6(1) (a) GDPR.
We will not disclose your personal data to third parties unless:
Where necessary under Article 6(1) (b) GDPR in order to manage our client relationship with you your personal data will be passed on to third parties. This includes, in particular, passing it on to your opponents and their representatives (especially their lawyers) as well as courts of law and other public authorities for correspondence purposes and in order to assert and defend your rights.
Lawyer confidentiality is not affected. In the case of data that is subject to lawyer confidentiality this will only be passed on to third parties by agreement with you.
Where we process data in a third country (i.e. outside the European Union (EU) or European Economic Area (EEA)), where this is done whilst using third-party services or when disclosing or transmitting data to third parties this will only be done so as to fulfil our (pre)contractual duties, with your consent, where required by law to do so, or where we have a legitimate interest in so doing. Unless there should be a statutory exemption we will only process data in a third country if the special statutory conditions under Art. 44 et seq. GDPR are fulfilled.
You have the right:
Where your personal data is processed for the purpose of legitimate interests under Art. 6(1) sentence 1(f) GDPR you have the right under Art. 21 GDPR to object to the processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation or where the objection is levelled at direct marketing. In the latter case you have a general right to object which will be implemented by us without a particular situation having to be specified.
If you should wish to exercise your right to object or ask for rectification kindly send an email to the above email address.
When our website is visited we use the SSL method (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the highest level of encryption that is supported by your browser. This will generally be 256-bit encryption. If your browser should not support 256-bit encryption we will have recourse to 128-bit v3 technology. You can see whether a particular page of our website is transmitted encrypted from the closed-form display of the key or padlock icon in the bottom status bar of your browser.
We also apply appropriate technical and organisational security measures to safeguard your data from accidental or deliberate manipulation, complete or partial loss, destruction or access by unauthorised third parties. Our security measures are continually being improved in line with technological progress.
The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of the processing.
In addition, there may be statutory storage obligations, e.g. commercial or tax storage obligations according to the German Commercial Code (HGB) or the German Fiscal Code (AO). Insofar as such obligations to retain data exist, we will block or delete your data at the end of these retention obligations.
We use social plugins (“plugins”) from social media (in our case from Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIN and Xing) on our website. When you visit our website, the data protection tool “Sheriff” only transfers the server address to the social media. However, no other personal data is transferred.
If you use the plugin and are logged in to a social network of one of the listed social media at the same time, it is possible that the respective social medium simultaneously links your activity to your user account. In this case your internet browser will be connected to the servers of the respective providers, who will then send your specific user data. The data transmitted in this process may include: the date and time of your visit to our website, the URL of the website you are visiting at the same time, the URL of the website you visited before, the browser you are using, the operating system you are using and your IP address.
If you do not want the social media to associate the information collected through our advertising directly with your particular profile, you must log out of the particular social media before visiting our website. You can also prevent the loading of plug-ins by using add-ons for your browser.

Due to the further development of our website and proposals or due to changes in the law or official rules and regulations it might become necessary to amend this Privacy Statement.
