1. Personal data we process when we provide the Website:
When we provide our Website to you, we process personal data for technical reasons for each visitor. These are data that we automatically process for every visitor when the Website is accessed.
Data that we automatically collect when you use our Website:
As soon as you visit the Website, you send technical information to our web servers. This happens independently of whether or not you contact us afterwards (for example via the contact form). In any case, we collect the following usage data:
Date and time of the visit and the duration of the use of the Website; the IP address of your device; the referral URL (the Website from which you may have been referred); the browser used and, if applicable, the operating system; the visited sub-pages of the Website.
We process the usage data to enable you to use the Website and to ensure its functionality. In addition, we process usage data to correct errors, to ensure IT security and the operation of our systems, and to prevent misuse (e.g. through DDoS attacks). The usage data do not allow us to identify you as a person.
Data that you yourself transmit to us:
In addition to the data we receive from all visitors, we also process other data when you contact us by e-mail or telephone. Here we process the contact data provided by you, such as your telephone number or e-mail address, as well as the contents of your query. We process this data solely to process your contact request.
The legal basis for processing:
When processing your personal data, we rely on the EU General Data Protection Regulation, an EU-wide legal framework for standardising data protection law (GDPR). If you contact us by e-mail or by telephone, the legal basis is your consent in accordance with Article 6 (1) a) GDPR. We process the usage data for the purposes stated above on the basis of Article 6 (1) f) GDPR to pursue our legitimate interests.
2. Note on our Social Media Pages
We operate a page on the Facebook platform (https://www.facebook.com/hyazinthlaw/) as well on the Instagram platform (https://www.instagram.com/hyazinthlaw/) (collectively the “Social Media Pages”) to provide up-to-date information on our firm's activities. We and Facebook Ireland Ltd (“Facebook“) are jointly responsible as controllers for the data processing on our Social Media Pages. For this purpose, we have entered into a joint controllership agreement with Facebook which is available for review here. Detailed explanations on the data processing by Facebook are available in the Facebook Data Policy.
The data on our Social Media Pages are processed on the basis of Article 6 (1) f) GDPR to safeguard our legitimate interests by staying in touch with potential clients and other parties interested in our services.
3. With whom we share your information:
We will not transfer your data to others, with the exception of public authorities, in the event of legal obligations. For technical reasons our hosting provider is an exception to this rule. However, our hosting provider will process the usage data on our Website solely on our behalf and on our instructions and has undertaken to comply with strict requirements for the security of your data. The provider is Host Europe GmbH, Hansestrasse 111, 51149 Cologne. Your data will only be stored on servers in the Federal Republic of Germany.
4. Retention period:
We delete your usage data as soon as it is no longer required for the provision of the Website. If you contact us, we will delete the data you have provided after the request has been processed, unless you give us your consent to store this data for a longer period of time.
5. User profiles:
We do not use your data to create a user profile. This means that we will not use your information to provide you with a personalised Website based on your personal preferences and interests or to provide you with customised offers based on your past behaviour.
6. Your legal rights under the GDPR:
You can assert the following rights against us within the scope of the GDPR with regard to your personal data:
Your right to information and access in accordance with Article 15 of the GDPR,
Your right to rectification under Article 16 GDPR,
Your right to erasure under Article 17 GDPR,
Your right to restriction of processing under Article 18 GDPR and
Your right to data portability under Article 20 GDPR.
You also have a right to lodge a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority, the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection and Freedom of Information.
Furthermore, you can also withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time in the event of a contact enquiry. However, this withdrawal will have future effect only. Any processing conducted prior to the withdrawal of your consent remains unaffected by this.
Information on your right of objection under Article 21 GDPR
Right of objection in individual cases
In addition to the rights already mentioned, you have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data based on Article 6 para. 1 f GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests). If you file an objection, we will no longer process your personal data unless we can prove compelling grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
The objection can be filed informally and should be sent to: firstname.lastname@example.org
7. Amendment of this Privacy Statement
In order to keep this information up to date, this Privacy Statement will be amended if the underlying data processing is changed. All changes will be published on our Website.
