Privacy Policy

Last updated: November 2023

In this privacy policy, you will learn how Sasse, Bachelin & Lichtenhahn Rechtsanwälte Partnerschaft mbB (hereinafter referred to as “we” or “us”) collects and processes your personal data. The protection of your personal data is very important to us and we naturally comply with all relevant applicable legal data protection requirements. In the following, we would like to inform you about how we ensure the protection of your personal data and which personal data is collected or processed by us and for what purposes. We ask you to read this privacy policy as carefully as possible in order to inform yourself about our handling of your personal data.

As a precautionary measure, we would like to point out that no data transmission via the Internet is 100% secure and that you should therefore not provide us with any sensitive information if you want to completely exclude the security risk that may exist in any case.

Responsible person

We are also the responsible person for the collection and processing of your personal data on this website within the meaning of the applicable data protection law (Art. 4 lit. 7 GDPR).

Contact person for data protection issues

If you have any questions about our privacy policy, please contact our data protection officer(s):

Personal data

Personal data within the meaning of Art. 4 lit. 1 GDPR is any information relating to a natural person that can be used to establish his or her identity. This includes information such as: Your name, date of birth, gender, payment information, mailing address, and email address. Personal data that you transmit to us in the course of your visit to this website (or by other means) or that we collect automatically when you visit this website will only be used by us to the extent necessary and only for legally permissible purposes.

No personal data may be collected and processed from persons under the age of 16 without the consent of their legal representatives or appropriate supervisors. Persons who have not yet reached the age of 16 are therefore required to either obtain the necessary consent or to refrain from using our website and our offers in connection with the collection of personal data.

Data collection

In the following context, (including personal) data is automatically collected or processed when you visit this website (on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR):

IP address, web browser
Browsing history (e.g. time zone, date, time, pages visited before and after our website)

In the following context, when you visit this website, the (possibly personal) data transmitted by you to us will be collected or processed (on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR):

Application information (e.g. curriculum vitae, certificates)
Support requests (especially in case of technical difficulties with this website)
Content of correspondence with us electronically or by telephone

Use of data

We use your (possibly personal) data (on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR) in the following context:

To administer and improve your use of our services and offerings, in particular your visit to our website.
To communicate with you in the context of your use of our services/offers (e.g. answering/processing requests, information about changes, etc.).
To evaluate your job application, in particular the information contained therein.
for the performance of contracts concluded between you and us, in particular for the fulfilment of our contractual obligations towards you.
To improve the security, functionality and presentation of our website.
to comply with legal and, if applicable, regulatory requirements.

SSL encryption

SSL encryption is used on our website for security reasons (in particular to protect the transmission of confidential data transmitted by you to us). The establishment of such an encrypted connection can be recognized by the fact that the browser address bar begins with “https://” (instead of “http://”) and by the fact that a lock symbol is displayed in the browser line. Active SSL encryption prevents the data transmitted to us from being viewed by third parties.

Server Log Data

When you visit our website, your web browser automatically transmits so-called “server log data” to us, which contains the following information, which is automatically collected and stored by our provider: IP address, URL visited, time of the server request. The legal basis for this data processing operation can be found in Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR, according to which the processing of data is permitted for the performance of a contract or for the performance of pre-contractual measures, or in Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, according to which the processing of data is permitted for the purpose of improving and maintaining one’s own online offering.

Right of revocation / right to information, correction, deletion, etc.

The legislator has enacted a wide range of retention obligations and periods for data. At the end of these legal periods, your respective data will be routinely deleted. Of course, your data will also be deleted if the purpose for which it was used no longer requires it.

In accordance with the applicable legal provisions, you also have the right at any time to revoke or restrict your consent to the use of your personal data with effect for the future and to be entitled to free information about your collected personal data (i.e. which data we process and for what purposes) and, if applicable, the right to correction, blocking, deletion or to receive an electronic copy of your personal data held by us in order to transmit it to a third party (if you have a right to data portability).

Upon receipt of your request, we will immediately correct or stop using or delete your personal data. Excluded from this are data whose correction, blocking or deletion conflict with statutory, statutory or contractual retention periods or which are necessary for the establishment, content design or modification of your contractual relationship with us or which must be stored by us for a longer period of time for billing purposes or for other reasons, including for fraud prevention. In these circumstances, the data will be kept for as long as is necessary for the respective purpose and permitted by law. We reserve the right to partially or completely delete or block your registration in the event of suspicion of misuse or illegal or criminal acts. If you exercise any of your rights mentioned above, we reserve the right to request proof of your identity from you if necessary (this process is then also subject to this Privacy Policy).

In principle, the competent supervisory authority for data protection issues is the state data protection officer of the federal state in which the controller within the meaning of the GDPR has its registered office.
