Data protection declaration
Schwärzler Attorneys, Feldkircher Strasse 15, FL-9494 Schaan („we“/“us“) declares that the processing of personal data is compliant with the GDPR in the course of business operations.
Regarding the processing of personal data, we are bound to a strict duty of confidentiality and we comply with the obligations of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in accordance with the professional requirements obliged by lawyers. Accordingly, personal data will be treated with the highest confidentiality.
Processing of Personal Data
Personal data is any data that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person such as name, address, date of birth, gender, email address and personal data concerning criminal proceedings. Processing of personal data includes collection, storage, adaptation or alteration, use, provision, erasure or deletion of data.
We process personal data, necessary for the implementation of our services which is provided voluntarily to us.
A complete provision is necessary in order to successfully process our orders, therefore a limitation of personal data could lead to the challenge of a mandate. All personal data is saved and entered on our internal server in our office.
Legality and Purposes of Data Processing
Processing of personal data takes place with the consent of the individual for the purpose of fulfilling the obligations from the contractual relationship. In practice we process the personal data for purposes that are covered by the mandate agreement. Personal data is primarily processed for the purpose of fulfilling our mandate, thus we process them for justification, administration and the transaction of the contractual relationship.
Personal data is processed especially for legal representation in all domestic and foreign courts, all national and international courts as well as in arbitral tribunal and in front of authorities. If necessary personal data is transmitted to third parties, which observe the GDPR and also properly declare their obligation to observe its rules.
In addition, data processing takes place for the purpose of maintaining customer relationships and for the purpose of self-promotion.
The collected data is necessary for proper fulfilment of the order, as it is not possible to maintain the contractual relationship without this data.
Storage Period and Data Security
Essentially, personal data given by our customers is stored in our law office within the provided and neccessary extent until the end of the business relationship. In addition, personal data is stored due to legal obligation to the extent allowed by law and for this legal period.
Protection of personal data takes place through appropriate organizational and technical precautions, which assure protection against unauthorized access and prevent data breaches.
In case of any data breach, we will promptly report to the affected person and the relevant authority.

To fulfil the mandate, it may also be necessary to transmit personal data to third parties (e.g. insurance companies, service providers, opposing parties) as well as courts and authorities. If necessary, an exchange of personal data between our branches is also possible.
