General information on data processing
Scope of processing personal data
We only process personal data insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services. The processing of personal data takes place only with our constent. An exception applies in cases in which prior consent cannot be obtained for factual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by law.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Insofar as we obtain the data subject's consent for the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a EU of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR / DSGVO) as the legal basis. When processing personal data, which is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which our law firm is subject, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis. In the event that vital interests of the data subject or another natural person require the processing of personal data, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis. If processing is necessary to safeguard the legitimate interests of our law firm or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing.
Deletion of data and duration of storage
Personal data will be deleted or blocked as soon as the purpose of storage no longer applies. Storage can also take place if this has been provided for by the European or national legislator in EU regulations, laws or other regulations to which the person responsible is subject. The data will also be blocked or deleted if a storage period prescribed by the standards mentioned expires, unless there is a need for further storage of the data for the conclusion or fulfillment of a contract.

The legal basis for the temporary storage of data and log files is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer required to achieve the purpose for which it was collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended.

In this case, the IP addresses of the users are deleted or alienated, so that it is no longer possible to assign the calling client.
