PPR & PARTNER’s company data protection officer can be reached at the abovementioned address or at datenschutzbeauftragter@ppr-partner.de.

2. Collecting and saving personal data, as well as the type and purpose of utilisation

  • When you instruct us, we collect the following information:
  • title, first name, last name,
  • a valid email address,
  • address,
  • telephone number (landline and/or mobile telephone),
  • information which is necessary for the assertion and defence of your rights in the framework of the attorney-client relationship.

This data is collected

  • in order to be able to identify you as our client,
  • in order to be able to advise and represent properly you as your attorneys,
  • in order to correspond with you,
  • for invoicing,
  • to handle any liability claims as well as in order to asset any claims against you.

The data processing takes place in response to your enquiry and is necessary pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, b of the DSGVO for the purposes named in order to properly execute the attorney-client relationship and for the bilateral fulfilment of obligations arising out of the attorney-client contract.

The personal data collected by us for the instruction is saved until the expiry of the statutory storage period for attorneys (6 years after the expiry of the calendar year in which the attorney-client relationship ended) and deleted thereafter, unless pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, c of the DSGVO we are obliged due to tax-law and commercial-law storage and documentation obligations (arising out of the German Commercial Code (HGB), German Penal Code (StGB), or the German Fiscal Code (AO)) to store the data for a longer period or you have consented to a more extensive storage pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, a of the DSGVO.

3. Passing data on to third parties

Your personal data is not transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

Insofar as this is necessary pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, b of the DSGVO for the execution of attorney-client relationships with you, your personal data will be passed on to third parties. This particularly includes passing data on to procedural opponents and their representatives (especially their attorneys) as well as to courts and other public authorities for the purpose of correspondence as well as in order to assert and defend your rights. The data passed on may only be used by the third parties for the purposes named.

Attorney-client privilege remains unaffected. Insofar as this is data which is subject to attorney-client privilege, the data is passed on to third parties only in consultation and agreement with you.

4. Rights of the person concerned

You have the right:

  • to revoke your consent at any time to us pursuant to Article 7, paragraph 3 of the DSGVO. This has the consequence that we may no longer continue the data processing which is based on that consent in the future,
  • to request information about your personal data processed by us pursuant to Article 15 of the DSGVO. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipient to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage duration, the existence of a right to correction, deletion, restriction on processing or objection, the existence of a complaint right, the origin of your data insofar as this was not collected by us, as well as about the existence of automatised decision-making, including profiling and if applicable meaningful information about its/their details,
  • to request the correction of inaccurate personal data or the completion of personal data which is stored by us pursuant to Article 16 of the DSGVO,
  • to request the deletion of your personal data stored by us pursuant to Article 17 of the DSGVO, insofar as the processing is not required in order to exercise the right to free expression of opinion and information which is required to fulfil a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims,
  • to request a limitation on the processing of your personal data pursuant to Article 18 of the DSGVO, insofar as the correctness of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you refuse its deletion and we no longer require the data, but you need it in order to assert, exercise or defend legal claims or you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Article 21 of the DSGVO,
  • to request receipt pursuant to Article 20 of the DSGVO of the personal data which you have provided us with in a structured, common and machine-readable format, or transmission to another party responsible, and
  • to complain to a supervisory authority pursuant to Article 77 of the DSGVO. Usually, you can approach the supervisory authority at your usual place of residence or work, or the headquarters of our law firm.

5. Objection right

Insofar as your personal data is processed on the basis of justified interests pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, f of the DSGVO, you have the right pursuant to Article 21 of the DSGVO to file an objection to the processing of your personal data, insofar as there are reasons for this which arise from your special situation.

If you wish to make use of your objection right, an email to kontakt@ppr-partner.de is sufficient.
