4. Cookies

Cookies are used on the website. These are data packets that are exchanged between the server of the law firm’s website and the visitor’s browser. These are stored by the devices used (PC, notebook, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit the website. In this respect, cookies cannot cause any damage to the devices used. In particular, they do not contain any viruses or other malware. Information is stored in the cookies that results in each case in connection with the specific end device used. The tax office can therefore in no way obtain direct knowledge of the identity of the visitor to the website.

Cookies are largely accepted according to the basic browser settings. The browser settings can be configured so that cookies are either not accepted on the devices used or that a special message is displayed before a new cookie is created. However, we would like to point out that deactivating cookies may mean that not all functions of the website can be used in the best possible way.

The use of cookies serves to make the use of the law firm’s website more convenient. For example, session cookies can be used to track whether the visitor has already visited individual pages of the website. After leaving the website, these session cookies are automatically deleted.

Temporary cookies are used to improve user-friendliness. They are stored on the visitor’s device for a temporary period. When the website is visited again, it automatically recognises that the visitor has already accessed the page at an earlier time and which entries and settings were made so that they do not have to be repeated.

Cookies are also used to analyse visits to the website for statistical purposes and to improve the service. These cookies make it possible to automatically recognise that the website has already been accessed by the visitor on a subsequent visit. The cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time.

The data processed by cookies is required for the above-mentioned purposes to safeguard the legitimate interests of the law firm in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) GDPR is justified.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

6. your rights as a data subject

If your personal data is processed when you visit our website, you have the following rights as a “data subject” within the meaning of the GDPR:

6.1 Information

You can request information from us as to whether your personal data is being processed by us. There is no right to information if the provision of the requested information violates the duty of confidentiality pursuant to Art. § Section 83 StBerG or the information must be kept secret for other reasons, in particular due to an overriding legitimate interest of a third party. In deviation from this, there may be an obligation to provide information if your interests outweigh the interest in confidentiality, in particular taking into account the threat of damage. The right to information is also excluded if the data is only stored because it may not be deleted due to legal or statutory retention periods or serves exclusively for the purposes of data backup or data protection control, provided that the provision of information would require a disproportionately high effort and processing for other purposes is excluded by suitable technical and organisational measures. If the right to information is not excluded in your case and your personal data is processed by us, you can request the following information from us:

  • Purposes of the processing,
  • Categories of personal data processed by you,
  • Recipients or categories of recipients to whom your personal data is disclosed, in particular recipients in third countries,
  • if possible, the planned duration for which your personal data will be stored or, if this is not possible, the criteria for determining the storage period,
  • the existence of a right to rectification or erasure or restriction of processing of personal data concerning you or a right to object to such processing,
  • the existence of a right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority,
  • if the personal data have not been collected from you as the data subject, the available information on the origin of the data,
    where applicable, the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and envisaged consequences of automated decision-making,
  • if applicable, in the case of transfer to recipients in third countries, provided that no decision has been taken by the EU Commission on the adequacy of the level of protection pursuant to Art. 45 para. 3 GDPR, information on which appropriate safeguards pursuant to Art. Art. 46 para. 2 GDPR for the protection of personal data.
6.2 Correction and completion

If you discover that we have incorrect personal data about you, you can demand that we correct this incorrect data immediately. If your personal data is incomplete, you can request that it be completed.

6.3 Deletion

You have the right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”), unless the processing is necessary for exercising the right of freedom of expression, the right to information or for compliance with a legal obligation or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest and one of the following reasons applies:

  • The personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were processed.
  • The justification for the processing was exclusively your consent, which you have revoked.
  • You have objected to the processing of your personal data that we have made public.
  • You have objected to the processing of personal data not made public by us and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing.
  • Your personal data has been processed unlawfully.
  • The deletion of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which we are subject.

There is no right to erasure if, in the case of lawful non-automated data processing, erasure is not possible or only possible with disproportionate effort due to the special type of storage and your interest in erasure is low. In this case, the restriction of processing takes the place of erasure.

6.4 Restriction of processing

You can demand that we restrict processing if one of the following reasons applies:

  • You dispute the accuracy of the personal data. In this case, the restriction may be requested for the period of time that enables us to verify the accuracy of the data.
  • The processing is unlawful and you request the restriction of the use of your personal data instead of erasure.
  • We no longer need your personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need it for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
  • You have lodged an objection acc. Art. 21 para. 1 of the GDPR. The restriction of processing can be requested as long as it is not yet clear whether our legitimate reasons outweigh your reasons.

Restriction of processing means that the personal data will only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest. Before we lift the restriction, we have a duty to inform you.

6.5 Data portability

You have a right to data portability if the processing is based on your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter a) or Art. 9 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f). 2 (a) GDPR) or on a contract to which you are a party and the processing is carried out by automated means. In this case, the right to data portability includes the following rights, provided that this does not adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others: You may request to receive the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You have the right to transmit this data to another controller without hindrance from us. Where technically feasible, you can request that we transfer your personal data directly to another controller.

6.6 Contradiction

Insofar as the processing is based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. e) GDPR (performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority) or on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f) GDPR (legitimate interest of the controller or a third party), you have the right to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, at any time to processing of personal data concerning you. This also applies to a data processing based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. e) or letter f) GDPR based profiling. After exercising your right to object, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You can object to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes at any time. This also applies to profiling in connection with such direct advertising. After exercising this right to object, we will no longer use the personal data concerned for direct marketing purposes.

You have the option to inform us informally of your objection by telephone, e-mail, fax or to our postal address listed at the beginning of this privacy policy.

Revocation of consent

You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of consent can be communicated informally by telephone, e-mail, fax or to our postal address. The revocation does not affect the legality of the data processing that took place on the basis of the consent until receipt of the revocation. After receipt of the cancellation, the data processing, which was based exclusively on your consent, will be discontinued.

7. complaint

If you believe that the processing of personal data concerning you is unlawful, you may lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority that is competent for your place of residence or work or for the place of the alleged infringement.

8. status and updating of this privacy policy

This privacy policy has the status as of 25. May 2018. We reserve the right to update the privacy policy in due course in order to improve data protection and/or adapt it to changes in official practice or case law.
