Auch sensible Daten, wie Gesundheitsdaten oder Daten im Zusammenhang mit einem Strafverfahren können mitumfasst sein.

We collect, process and use your personal data only if there is a legal basis in accordance with the GDPR; this is done in compliance with data protection and civil law provisions. Data collection and processing depends on whether you visit our website, contact us via the contact form, subscribe to our newsletter, are our client or our business partner or supplier. We only collect personal data that is required for the performance and processing of our (legal) services or that you have voluntarily provided to us. If you, as a client, do not want to provide us with data, we cannot conclude an attorney-client relationship with you.

Information pursuant to Art 14 DSGVO (collection of personal data not from the data subject): Furthermore, we inform you that we also process information from third parties on a case-by-case basis (e.g. companies register, GISA, Ediktsdatei, ZMR, credit agencies). This is about contact information, functions and responsibilities in companies, creditworthiness. This processing is based on our legitimate interest in having a complete and up-to-date master data set about you as required for business purposes.

3. Processing of the data

We will not process the data provided to us for purposes other than those covered by the mandate agreement or by your consent or otherwise by a provision in accordance with the GDPR. An exception to this is the use for statistical purposes, provided that the data provided has been anonymised.

4. Consent and right of withdrawal

If your consent is required for the processing of your data, we will only process it after your express consent.
You can revoke your consent at any time at the following e-mail address: The revocation of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation.

If you object to processing for direct marketing purposes, the personal data will no longer be processed for these purposes.

We only transfer your personal data to countries for which the EU Commission has decided that they have an adequate level of data protection or we take measures to ensure that all recipients have an adequate level of data protection. For this purpose, we conclude e.g. standard contractual clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC). If there are no suitable guarantees, data will only be transferred if this is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims (Article 49 (1) (e) of the GDPR) or for the fulfilment of the mandate (Article 49 (1) (b) or (c) of the GDPR).

7. Cookies

This website uses “cookies” to make our services more user-friendly, effective and secure.
A “cookie” is a small text file that we transfer to the browser’s cookie file on your computer’s hard drive via our web server. This enables our website to recognise you as a user when a connection is established between our web server and your browser. Cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users of our Internet pages. The content of the cookies we use is limited to an identification number that no longer allows any personal reference to the user. The main purpose of a cookie is to recognise visitors to the website.
Two types of cookies are used on this website:

– Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave our website and are automatically deleted at the end of your visit.
– Persistent cookies: For a better user experience, cookies remain stored on your terminal device and allow us to recognise your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited.

8. Server-Log-Files

In order to optimise this website in terms of system performance, user-friendliness and the provision of useful information about our services, the website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. This includes your internet protocol address (IP address), browser and language setting, operating system, referrer URL, your internet service provider and date/time.
This data is not merged with personal data sources. We reserve the right to check this data retrospectively if we become aware of specific indications of unlawful use.

9.Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”), 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL, IP address, time of server request) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

On this website, Google Analytics has been extended by the code “anonymizeIp”. By activating IP anonymisation on this website, the masking of your IP address is guaranteed (the last 8 bits of the IP addresses are deleted), so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The use of web analytics requires your consent, which we obtain with our cookie pop-up. According to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO (consent) constitutes the legal basis for the processing of personal data as may occur during the collection by web analytics tools. Information on the processing of your data collected on this website in the USA by Google: By consenting to the use of cookies (e.g. by clicking “accept all”), you also consent to your data being processed by processors in the USA in accordance with Article 49 (1) sentence 1 lit a DSGVO. There is no adequate level of data protection in the US according to EU standards. US authorities may have access to your data without you having adequate means of legal protection. If you do not accept the Google Analytics cookies, the transmission will not take place. We would like to point out that the rejection is preset in the cookie settings. However, by clicking on “accept all”, you also consent to analytics cookies.

The data sent by us and linked to cookies is automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month.

We have concluded an order processing agreement (data processing addendum) with Google LLC. For more information on Google’s terms of use and privacy policy, see <a href=”“.></a> or under <a href=”“></a> and <a href=”“></a>.
