I. Use of our website

In this section we inform you about the processing of your data when you visit our website.

1. Scope of data processing

In general, it is possible to use our website without providing any personal information. If personal information (such as your name, address, or e-mail address) is collected on our website, it is always collected on a voluntary basis whenever possible. We will never transmit this data to third parties without your express consent.
For security reasons, and to protect transmitted personal information and other confidential content (such as orders or inquiries to the responsible persons), this website uses SSL and/or TLS encryption. You can recognize an encrypted connection because your browser line will start with “https://” and a lock symbol.
We would like to note that there may be gaps in security whenever data is transmitted over the internet (such as via e-mail communication). It is not possible for us to provide seamless protection for your data from third party access.
If you are using our website simply for informational purposes, meaning that you do not provide us with information in any other manner, we only collect the data transmitted to our server by your browser (“server log files”). When you access our website, we collect the following data which is technically required to display our website to you:
- Our website visited
- Date and time of access
- Quantity of data transmitted in bytes
- Source/reference from which you accessed the page
- Browser used – operating system used
- IP address used (in anonymized form if possible)

Data is processed in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO to fulfill our justifiable interests and in order to improve the stability and function of our website. Data is not transmitted to others or used in any other manner. However, we reserve the right to review server log files subsequently if we have concrete reasons to believe illegal usage has occurred.

2. Purposes of data processing

The processing of this data is necessary to display the contents of the website on your device in the best possible way. We also process this data to investigate and track attacks on our IT.

3. Legal basis of data processing

This data is processed in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f GDPR due to our legitimate interest in being able to show you the website and track attacks on our IT.

4. Recipient of the data

We use an external IT service provider, STRATO AG, Pascalstr. 10, 10587 Berlin, Germany, www.strato.de to provide the website.

5. Storage duration

The log data is stored for a period of seven days and then deleted, unless it is exceptionally necessary to keep it longer to follow up an identified attack. As soon as you close your browser, the session cookie is automatically deleted by default, unless you have made a different setting in the cookie settings of your browser.

II. Business contacts and their employees

In the following we inform you about how we process data of our business partners or employees of our business partners.

1. Scope of data processing

Within the scope of our business relationship with you as a business partner or employee of business partners, we process the data that we receive from you or your employer.

2. Purposes of data processing

Your data will be processed by us for the purpose of establishing and implementing the contractual relationship with our business partner as well as for fulfilling the legal requirements.

3. Legal basis of data processing

We process the data on the basis of the following legal bases:
- if you are our business partner in person, the processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the purpose of implementing or initiating a contract
- for the purpose of fulfilling legal obligations, the processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR in connection with legal and official requirements (e.g. tax and commercial law)
- if you are an employee of one of our business partners, your data will be processed on the basis of our overriding legitimate interests in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 letter f GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the functioning and practicable cooperation with our business partners and the employees of our business partners

4. Recipient of the data

Within our firm, only those persons who need your data for the purposes described have access to it.
We also transfer your data to authorities (e.g. tax office, police, public prosecutor's office, social insurance agencies) or courts within the scope of their respective responsibilities if we are obliged to do so by law or by order. In these cases, too, data will only be transferred by us to the extent necessary for the respective purposes.

5. Storage Duration

Your data will be stored by us for as long as we need it for the specific processing purpose. We regularly store your data at least for the duration of our business relationship with you or the business partner for whom you work.
In addition, we store certain data for the duration of statutory limitation periods (usually three years, in individual cases up to thirty years) and for as long as statutory retention periods (e.g. from the German Commercial Code, the German Fiscal Code) require it (but generally for a maximum of ten years).
Under certain circumstances, we may have to keep your data for a longer period of time. This is the case, for example, if in connection with an official or judicial procedure a ban on data deletion is ordered for the duration of the procedure.

III. Social media profiles

No cookies from social media platform operators are integrated on our website (e.g. via plug-ins).

IV. Your rights as a data subject

The following rights may be protected by the confidentiality of the mandate or the notaries' obligation to maintain confidentiality in accordance with Art. 23 GDPR in conjunction with § 29 BDSG. Provided there is no conflict with the mandate relationship, you have the following rights:

1. Right of access to information

You have the right to obtain free information on request about whether data concerning you are being processed and, if so, what data we process about you (Art. 15 GDPR). You may re-apply within a reasonable period of time. You also have the right to receive a copy of your data that is the subject of our processing.

3. Right of deletion

Under the conditions of Art. 17 GDPR, you can request the deletion of your data.

4. Right to limitation

You have the right to demand that we restrict processing if the requirements of Art. 18 GDPR are met. This is the case, for example, if the processing of your data is no longer necessary for our purposes, but you need it to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. If the processing of your data is restricted, these data - apart from being stored - may only be processed by us with your consent or in the special cases mentioned in Art. 18 para. 2 GDPR.

5. Right to data portability
