2. Processed data and processing purposes

In particular, Ganteführer  collects contact data (e.g. name, address, telephone number, e-mail address) as well as other information required for the processing of orders or for communication. The data is processed and stored both in paper and electronic form.

Ganteführer  collects and processes personal data in order to be able to identify its clients, business partners and communication partners, to be able to process mandates that have been granted, to correspond with clients, business partners and communication partners, to issue invoices, to settle any liability claims that may exist and, if necessary, to assert claims against clients, business partners and communication partners. It should be noted in this context that auditors, tax consultants and lawyers are professionally obliged to keep files and retain them for a certain period of time (see § 51b of the German Professional Code of Conduct for Auditors, § 66 of the German Tax Consultancy Act, § 50 of the Federal Lawyers’ Act).

Ganteführer uses the access data to make the website accessible, to detect and correct any technical problems that may occur and to prevent and, if necessary, prosecute any misuse of the services offered by Ganteführer.

The legal basis for the collection and processing of personal data by Ganteführer is Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter b) GDPR, Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter c) GDPR and Article 6(1) sentence 1 letter f) GDPR. The legitimate interests of the law firm arise from the data processing purposes described above.

3. Transfer of data to third parties

Insofar as this is necessary in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 letters b) and f) GDPR for handling of the mandate relationship or other business and communication relationships, the personal data will be passed on to third parties. This includes in particular the disclosure to courts and other public authorities for the purpose of correspondence as well as for asserting and defending the rights of the client. In addition, the information is also passed on to defendants and their representatives (especially their lawyers). Finally, the personal data is also transferred to carefully selected processors who perform administrative tasks for Ganteführer , such as electronic management and storage of files or archiving of paper files. The professional secrecy obligations arising from § 57b of the German Professional Code of Conduct for Auditors, § 57 of the German Tax Consultancy Act and § 43a of the Federal Lawyers’ Act remain unaffected.

Apart from this, personal data will only be disclosed without the express consent of the client, business partner or communication partner if Ganteführer Law Firm is obliged to do so by law or by an official or court order.

4. Place of data storage

The data is processed exclusively in computer centres that fall within the scope of the GDPR.

5. Storage duration

The personal data will be deleted when it is no longer required for the purposes described in this privacy policy, unless legal provisions require longer storage.

6. Rights of data subjects

Data subjects are entitled to information about their personal data stored and, if the respective legal requirements are met, to correction, deletion, restriction of processing, objection to processing and data transferability. In addition, data subjects can also contact the competent supervisory authority with complaints about the use of data.
