C. Scope of processing of personal data, purpose of processing

1. Visiting our website and creating log files

a) Description of processing activities, storage
Whenever our website is visited, our system automatically collects data and information from the computer system of the accessing computer. The following data is thereby collected:

· Information about the browser type and version used
· the user's operating system
· the IP address of the user
· Date and time of access
· Websites from which the user's system accesses our website (referrer URL)
· the subpages of our homepage accessed by the user,
· Name of the retrieved file
· Notification whether the retrieval was successful

This data is deleted from the log files of the system after 7 days, unless its further processing is exceptionally necessary to protect our legitimate interests (e.g. to induce the blocking of IT addresses, to file a criminal complaint). If such an exceptional case exists, the data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for this purpose. This data is not stored and/or merged with other personal data of the user.

b) Purpose and legal basis of the processing
The data listed under a) are collected
· to enable the website to be delivered to the user's computer. The legal basis for this is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f  GDPR. The temporary recording of the IP address to display the pages called up by the user is technically necessary for this purpose and represents a legitimate interest on our part within the meaning of Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f  GDPR, which is not opposed by any overriding interests of the user.
· in order to ensure the security of our web server and the trouble-free operation of our website, e.g. monitoring to prevent or detect hacker attacks; the aforementioned purposes represent a legitimate interest on our part within the meaning of Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f  GDPR, which is not opposed by any overriding interests of the user.

c) Transfer of personal data, recipient of the data
The collected data will be stored by our web hosting provider. This provider acts on our behalf and provides us with storage space for our website. In addition, our web hosting provider provides other related services, e.g. saves the data processing procedures involved and ensures that the website is accessible on the Internet. The service provider is based in the European Union or in a country of the European Economic Area. The data collected in accordance with a) will not be transferred to third parties, unless this is necessary in the event of attacks on our IT, see above under b), for example in the context of filing a criminal complaint with the law enforcement authorities.

d) Right to object
The collection of the IP address is necessary for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is mandatory for the operation of the website. There is therefore no possibility of objection on the part of the user. With regard to the other personal data processed in accordance with 1 a), you have the right to object to the processing at any time for reasons arising from your specific situation, see further information in section D.

 

2. Contacting via e-mail by the website visitor

a) Description of processing, storage
It is possible to contact our law firm via the e-mail addresses mentioned in the imprint and on the sub-pages "Lawyers". We then record the personal data of the author transmitted with the e-mail. The data will be used to answer the inquiry. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection. If the inquiry relates to a mandate that has been given or is currently being negotiated, the communication contents and dates are stored until legal retention obligations have expired. In addition, the personal data of the author collected by us on the basis of the sent email will be restricted for further processing and will only be used to defend against possible legal claims once the respective conversation with the user has ended. The conversation is terminated when it can be concluded from the circumstances that the inquiry has been finally clarified without giving any mandate. The data will be deleted after the regular period of limitation.

b) Purpose and legal basis of the processing
Your e-mail address and any other data you provide will be stored in order to answer your request. The legal basis for this is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f  GDPR. If the purpose of the contact is to conclude a mandate, an additional legal basis for processing is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. b  GDPR.

c) Transfer of personal data, recipient
In this context, there is no transfer of the data to third parties. The data will be used exclusively for processing and answering the inquiry. The collected data is stored with our web hosting provider and on our local IT system. The web hosting provider works on our behalf and provides us with storage space for our website and stores the data processing procedures associated with this. This service provider has been carefully selected and commissioned by us, is bound by our instructions and is checked regularly. The service provider is based in the European Union or in a country of the European Economic Area.

d) Right to object
The user can object to the use of his personal data at any time. In such a case the conversation cannot be continued. In addition, section D applies.

 

3. Applications

a) Description of processing activities, storage, purpose
You can apply by mail or e-mail. When the subpage "Job Advertisements" is called up, we process the data collected by the call, see the information under C 1) of this data protection declaration. In addition, we process the data you send us with your application in order to check your suitability for the position to be filled and to carry out the application procedure. In the event of a rejection, we will delete the data you send us within 6 months after the rejection has been sent. If you have previously given us your consent to further storage in order to use your data for checking other vacancies to be filled in the future, we will store the data in accordance with the consent given until you revoke it. If you are awarded the position as part of the application process, the data will be transferred from the applicant data system to our personnel information system.

b) Legal basis of the processing
The legal basis for processing your personal data in this application procedure is § 26 of the German Federal Data Protection Act ( Bundesdatenschutzgesetz – BDSG). According to this law, the processing of the data required in connection with the decision to establish an employment relationship is permissible. Should the data be required for legal prosecution after the application procedure has been completed, data processing may be carried out on the basis of the requirements of Article 6  GDPR, in particular to safeguard legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f  GDPR. Our interest then consists in the assertion or defense of claims.

c) Transfer of personal data, recipient
The data collected in accordance with a) will be stored on our e-mail server in case of e-mail transmission and, if necessary, processed on our local IT system. Your application data will be reviewed by our human resources manager after receipt of your application. Suitable applications will then be forwarded internally to the department managers responsible for the respective open position. The further procedure is then coordinated. Within the company, only those persons who need access to your data for the proper processing of our application procedure have access to your data.

d) Right to object
You may at any time object to the storage of data that may be required for legal prosecution, processed on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f  GDPR, see Section D.

This service provider acts according to our instructions and on our behalf. This service provider has its headquarters in the European Union.  The data will not be passed on to third parties in any other way. The data will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of their collection or as soon as you have objected to their processing.

b) Legal basis of the processing, right to object
The legal basis for the data processing mentioned under a) is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f  GDPR. The sending of product information by letter post is a legitimate interest of our firm.

If you do not confirm your subscription within 24 hours, your data will be blocked and deleted within four days. Your request will be transmitted to us with the data you have provided and stored in our IT system.
