2. Collection and storage of personal data as well as type and purpose and their use
When you engage us, we collect the following information:
- title, first name, last name,
- e-mail address,
- phone numbers
- information necessary to assert and defend your rights within the framework of the engagement.
These data are collected:
- to identify you as our client;
- to provide you with appropriate legal advice and representation;
- to correspond with you;
- for invoicing;
- to settle any liability claims that may exist and to assert any claims against you.
The data will be processed at your request and are required for the purposes mentioned in Article 6(1), Sentence 1, Litera b GDPR for the appropriate processing of the engagement and for the mutual fulfilment of obligations arising from the engagement agreement.
The personal data collected by us for the engagement will be stored until the end of the legal obligation to keep records for lawyers (6 years after the end of the calendar year in which the engagement was ended) and then deleted, unless we are obliged by Article 6(1), Sentence 1, Litera c GDPR due to storage and documentation obligations in tax and commercial law (from the German Commercial Code, Criminal Code or Tax Code) to a longer storage or you have consented to a further storage in accordance with Article 6(1), Sentence 1, Litera a GDPR.
3. Disclosure of data to third parties
Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.
Insofar as this is necessary in accordance with Article 6(1), Sentence 1, Litera b GDPR for the completion of the engagement relation with you, your personal data will be passed on to third parties. This includes in particular the disclosure to adverse parties and their representatives (in particular their lawyers) as well as courts and other public authorities for the purpose of conducting correspondence and asserting and defending your rights. The data passed on may be used by the third party exclusively for the specified purposes.
The attorney-client privilege remains unaffected. Insofar as data which are subject to the attorney-client privilege are involved, disclosure to third parties will only take place in consultation with you.
4. Rights of the data subject

- Article 7(3) GDPR to revoke at any time the consent you have issued to us. As a result, we will no longer be allowed to continue processing data based on this consent in the future;

In particular, you may request information about the purposes of processing, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, deletion, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right to lodge a complaint, the origin of your data, if these have not been collected by us, and the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information on the details thereof;
- Article 16 GDPR to demand the correction of incorrect or complete personal data stored by us without delay;
- Article 17 GDPR to demand the deletion of your personal data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to fulfil a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims;
- Article 18 GDPR to restrict the processing of your personal data if you dispute the accuracy of the data, if the processing is unlawful, but you refuse to delete the data and we no longer need the data, but you need the data to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims or you have filed an objection to the processing in accordance with Article 21 GDPR;
- Article 20 GDPR to receive the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, current and machine-readable format or to request their transfer to another controller; and
