a) When visiting our website
When you visit our website for information about our law firm and our expertise, information is automatically sent (for unavoidable technical reasons) by the browser used on your terminal device to our website server. This information is stored temporarily in a log file. This means that, without any other action on your part, the following information is collected and stored until deleted automatically:
We process this data for the following purposes:
For the purpose of the data processing described above, we have contracted as external service provider, the 1&1 Internet SE, Elgendorfer Str. 57, 56410 Montabaur, to take care of hosting and support services. This company will be able to access this data during its work for us and we have entered into a contract on the processing of personal data in accordance with Art. 28 GDPR.
For security reasons (e.g. if we need to investigate improper uses or attacks on our web server), this information is stored for a period of 8 weeks. After that it is erased.
The legal basis for the processing of this data is derived from Article 6(1)(f) GDPR and Section 15(1), sentence 1 TMG. Our legitimate interest is based on the data processing purposes listed above. Under no circumstances do we use the collected data to draw conclusions about you as an individual. We will not disclose such data to third parties.
b) When registering for our newsletter „adjuga information“
We use our newsletter to inform you about current legal developments and issues (e.g. recent court decisions and legislative amendments), news about the firm’s legal practice and planned events, and to publish specialist articles.
To receive the newsletter you only need to provide an e-mail address. If you so wish, you may also provide us with your title, name and company to allow us to address you personally in the newsletter. We will process your data only for the purpose of sending our newsletter. We collect and process the personal data you provide to us solely based on your consent. The legal basis for this is Article 6(1)(a) and Article 7 GDPR.
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time at no cost. This can be done by a reply e-mail with your wish to cancel the subscription at any time to the respective sender or by writing to the postal address given in section 1.
Your withdrawal will mean the erasure of the data we have collected except for the data we may need to ensure that you do not receive any more newsletters. Your withdrawal does not affect the lawfulness of the consent-based processing up until the time of your withdrawal.
c) e-mail contact
On our website we provide you with the option of requesting certain information or offers by email or to get in contact with us.
If you contact us in this connection, we will collect and use only the personal data you provide us with which we need to process, answer and deal with your request. This generally means your name, your company name where applicable, your email address, your address if relevant and – if you are registering for an event – the position and business telephone number of the participant.
The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6(1)(b) GDPR in the event that the initiation and possible execution of a contract is involved. Otherwise the legal basis is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR; our legitimate interest consists in replying to and dealing with your request, which is why we need the stored data.
The personal data we collect and store will not be used for other purposes without your consent and will be erased once your request has been dealt with, unless the data has to be kept for a longer period of time to comply with any statutory information-keeping obligations.
3. Sharing of data
