II. Definition and Extent of the Data Processing
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.

incorrect data, erasure, restriction of processing and data transfer, revocation of the consent

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.
Transmission to Third Parties
Transmission of your data takes place on the basis of the GDPR, in particular on the basis of
consent of the individual or for the fulfilment of contract. 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.
In case of a transmission of personal data to recipients in third countries, we make sure that
the standards complied with reach the level of European data protection and the relevant
