§ 3 Principles of data processing

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. This includes, for example, information such as your name, age, address, telephone number, date of birth, e-mail address, IP address or user behavior on our website. Information where we cannot (or only with a disproportionate effort can) establish a reference to your person, e.g. by anonymizing the information, is not personal data. The processing of personal data (e.g. the collection, retrieval, use, storage or transmission) always requires a legal basis or your consent.

Processed personal data will be deleted as soon as the purpose of the processing has been achieved and there are no longer any legally prescribed retention obligations.

If we process your personal data for the provision of certain offers or the rendering of certain services, we will inform you in the following about the specific procedures, the scope and purpose of the data processing, the legal basis for the processing and the respective storage period.

§ 4 Individual processing procedures

Provision and use of the website

a. Type and scope of data processing

When calling up and using our website, we collect the personal data that your browser automatically transmits to our server, i.e. every access to our homepage and every retrieval of a file stored on the homepage is logged. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file.

When you use our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to display our website and to ensure stability and security:

  • Name of the accessed website
  • Name of the retrieved file
  • Date and time of retrieval
  • data volume transferred
  • Notification of successful retrieval
  • Browser type and version
  • the operating system of the user
  • Web page from which you came to our site
  • IP address and the requesting provider

We use the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, maintenance and repair of

the security and optimization of the offer as well as other administrative purposes. However, we reserve the right to check the log data retrospectively if there are reasonable grounds to suspect illegal use.

b. Legal basis

Art. 6 Nr. 1 f GDPR serves as the legal basis. The processing of the data mentioned is necessary for the provision of a website and thus serves to protect a legitimate interest of our company. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.

c. storage time

As soon as the above data is no longer required to display the website, it will be deleted. The collection of data for the provision of the website and the storage of the data in log files is absolutely necessary for the operation of the website. There is consequently no possibility for the user to object. Further storage can take place in individual cases if this is required by law.

If log files are checked due to suspected illegal use, the data will be deleted as soon as the check is complete.

Intercom (live chat)

Another contact option on our website is to send messages in live chat. For this we use the Intercom service from Intercom Inc., 55 2nd Street, San Francisco, CA 94105, USA. The user’s IP address is synchronized via an interface with the intercom servers. This is inevitable to allow our users to communicate with our employees via live chat. Intercom’s privacy policy can be found at https://www.intercom.com/privacy. Intercom is certified under the Privacy Shield: https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt0000000TNQvAAO&status=Active

b. Legal basis

Art. 6 § 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis. The processing of the data mentioned is necessary for the provision of live chat and communication with the users of the website and thus serves to protect a legitimate interest of our company. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about you personally.

c. storage time

The duration of the storage of the above data depends on the background of your contact. Your data will be deleted on a regular basis, provided that the purpose of the communication no longer applies and storage is no longer necessary.

Contact form, email and other contact options on our website

We provide you with various options to contact us. All information that is collected when you contact us is necessary at the respective time to prepare your advice and to be able to perform our service for you.

a. Type and scope of data processing

It is possible to contact us

  • via contact form,
  • by email,
  • by fax
  • or by phone

The information of the user is stored for the purpose of processing the request and for agreeing and preparing a free telephone appointment, which is used for advice and information, or for advice by email.

If you contact us by e-mail, the personal data you have sent to us in this e-mail will be saved. Communication by email has also become standard for lawyers and has become indispensable for the efficient processing of mandates. However, just like telephone calls, faxes or letters, emails may be read by unauthorized third parties due to criminally relevant behavior. Encrypting the emails can reduce the corresponding risk.

Experience shows, however, that most clients cannot receive specially encrypted emails or do not use this protection for practical reasons. If you contact us via the unencrypted contact form and provide an e-mail address or send us an unencrypted e-mail to initiate a conversation, you agree that we will send you an unencrypted e-mail and in this way provide you with all case-related information and documents. Of course, you can always change your decision for the future and let us know that you either now only want encrypted e-mail communication or want to completely do without e-mail communication (except emergencies for urgent protection of your rights).

If you contact us by fax, we will save the personal data that you send to us with this fax.
If you contact us by phone, the phone number from which the call was made and the date of the call will be saved. In addition, the information that you have given in the context of the telephone call will be saved, insofar as this is necessary to answer and further process your request.

In addition, we provide contact forms on our website. The data requested in the contact form can vary depending on the legal area. The provision of this data is largely voluntary. The data is required by us in order to be able to provide the most comprehensive and individually tailored advice or answer to your request.

The input masks of the contact forms contain the following mandatory information. These are absolutely necessary to process and answer your request:

  • Surname
  • E-mail address
  • phone number
  • Topic of the inquiry
  • Further details

The data you provide will be transmitted to us in encrypted form (SSL encryption technology), so that it is impossible for third parties to spy out this data.

If you have provided us with personal data, we will use it to answer your inquiries.

b. Legal basis

Art. 6 § 1 lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis. The processing of the data mentioned is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest in communication with website visitors and to provide the service.
Insofar as the user’s consent has been obtained, the processing of the personal data presented is based on Art. 6 § 1 lit. a GDPR.

In this case, we can be sued for the comment or contribution, which is why there is a legitimate interest in determining the identity of the author.
We also use the e-mail address to answer your request, insofar as this is not possible in the forum. The email address is not published and does not need to be confirmed, so the user can also use an alternative email address. We would like to point out that in this case it may not be possible to answer the question further.
We also save the name to answer the request. We would like to point out to the user that he can use a pseudonym if he does not want to comment or ask with his real name.

Art. 6 § 1 lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis. The processing of the data mentioned is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest in communication with website visitors and to provide the service.

c. storage time

We will also delete your comment as soon as possible if you request this by specifying your comment by email to kontakt@anwalt-kg.de.

We also use the e-mail address or the telephone number to inform the user of the result of the free check of his documents and other information.

Cookies enable us to understand how often and how the website, calculator and other functions are used. This enables us to continuously optimize our offer.
Our legitimate interest in data processing by cookies lies in the above purposes.

Since the cookies are stored on your device and transmitted from there to our server, you can configure the processing of data and information about cookies yourself using the settings of your browser.
