We delete the data arising in this connection after the storage is no longer necessary, or restrict the processing if storage is required by law.

Your rights

You have the following rights in relation to us with regard to your personal data:

In accordance with Article 15 GDPR, you can request information at any time regarding the personal data we have stored about you. In addition, you have the possibility at any time to have your personal data rectified by us in accordance with Article 16 GDPR and erased in accordance with Article 17 GDPR and to restrict the processing of your data in accordance with Article 18 GDPR. Pursuant to Article 20 GDPR, you have the right to have data which we process automatically based on your consent or in fulfilment of a contract handed over to you or to a third party in a common and machine-readable format. If you request the direct transfer of the data to another data controller, this will only be done if technically feasible. Excluded from the erasure are only the data we need to process outstanding tasks or to enforce existing rights and claims, as well as data we are required by law to retain. However, such data will be blocked. 

In accordance with Article 77 GDPR, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority.

Right of objection and revocation

In accordance with Article 21 GDPR, you have a right to object to the processing. If you avail yourself of your objection right, we will no longer process your personal data, unless there are compulsory grounds worthy of protection for the processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend against legal claims.

If your data are processed based on your consent, you have the right, pursuant to Article 7(3) GDPR to revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out based on the consent until revocation. Please note that in this case it may not be possible to process the relevant data in the future.

Purpose, duration and legal basis of data processing

Your personal data will be processed based on your consent (Article 6(1)a GDPR) for the purpose of registering for the newsletter. If you provide us your personal data by e-mail when contacting us, we process your personal data to process your enquiries, to contact you and, if necessary, to carry out pre-contractual measures or to fulfil the contract (Article 6(1)b GDPR). If necessary, we process your data beyond the actual fulfillment of the contract to protect the following legitimate interests of ourselves or third parties: Review and optimisation of procedures for needs analysis and direct contact, advertising or market and opinion research, insofar as you have not objected to the use of your data, assertion of legal claims and defence in legal disputes, guarantee of IT security and IT operation, as well as measures for business management and further development of services and products (Article 6(1)f GDPR). 

If necessary, we process your personal data for the duration of our business relationship, which encompasses, for example, the initiation and execution of a contract (Article 6(1)b GDPR). In addition, we are subject to various storage and documentation duties and may also be required by law to disclose personal data (Article 6(1)c GDPR).

Data processing when accessing the website

When you access our website, the data your browser transmits to the server on which the website content is hosted are automatically stored in log files and, if necessary, processed. However, only the last 90 accesses are recorded. The following data are processed during access:

  • date and time of access.
  • P address of the accessing terminal device.
  • website that is accessed.
  • the URL from which the file was requested/the desired function was initiated.
  • the volume of the data transferred.
  • the transmitted browser ID.

These data are collected exclusively for the purpose of operating the website and making the content available on the website (Article 6(1)f GDPR). In addition, if necessary, data from the log files are used to ensure the security of the website. These data will not be merged with other data sources that might establish a personal reference. The data in log files are deleted after one month.

Recipients and categories of recipients

Within Reusch Legal Consultants, those offices that need your data in order to fulfil our contractual and legal obligations will receive them. Job processors used by us (Article 28 GDPR) outside of Reusch Legal Consultants may receive data for these purposes. These are companies in the categories: IT services, logistics, telecommunications, advice and consulting as well as sales and marketing.

In addition, data will only be passed on to recipients outside Reusch Legal Consultants if this is permitted or required by law, if you have given your consent or if we are authorised to provide the information. Under these conditions, the recipients of the personal data can be, for example:  public bodies and institutions (e.g. supervisory authorities) where there is a legal or official obligation.

Newsletter

You have the possibility to subscribe to a reuschlaw.de newsletter. We will send the newsletter to the e-mail address you have provided. In the newsletter, we inform you about us and our offers and services.

We use the “double opt-in procedure” to register for our newsletter. This means that after your registration we will send you an e-mail to the specified e-mail address in which we will ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within one week, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store the IP addresses you use and the dates of registration and confirmation. The purpose of the procedure is to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify any possible misuse of your personal data.

Your e-mail address is the only required information for sending the newsletter. We store and use the e-mail address only for sending the newsletter and do not pass it on to third parties. We will send you a confirmation email to the email address you provided to verify that you are the owner of the email address you provided. Your email address should be confirmed within 24 hours.

The time of your registration and confirmation as well as the first opt-in e-mail will also be saved. When you register for the newsletter, we also store your IP address and the date of registration. Furthermore, we save the time of the first opt-in e-mail (= the first e-mail with which we ask you to confirm your registration). With the confirmation of your e-mail address, we also store the IP address from which the confirmation was made and the time of the confirmation. Finally, we save the texts used during registration and confirmation as the content of your declaration of consent. This storage serves both as proof in the event a third party misuses an e-mail address and subscribes to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorised party, and as proof of the content of your declaration of consent. 

If we use a newsletter tool to send our newsletter, we ensure that it complies with the legal requirements. For this purpose, we use the newsletter tool of CleverReach GmbH & Co KG, Mühlenstr. 43, 26180 Rastede, Germany, a provider with a TÜV-certified information security management system. Further information on CleverReach's data protection can be found at https://www.cleverreach.com/de/datensicherheit/.

You can revoke your consent to receive the newsletter at any time and unsubscribe from the newsletter. You can declare your revocation by clicking on the link provided in every newsletter e-mail or by sending an e-mail to info@reuschlaw.de or by sending a message to the contact details given in the imprint.

If you are an existing customer, we will also send you a newsletter at regular intervals to the e-mail address we have stored as part of the business relationship, provided you have not objected to its use. The objection can be made without incurring any costs other than the transmission costs according to the basic tariffs.

Twitter, XING, LinkedIn

We currently use the following social media plug-ins: Twitter, XING, LInkedIn. We use the “two-click solution”. This means that when you visit our site, no personal data are initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognise the provider of the plug-in by the mark on the box above its initial letter or the logo. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field and thereby activate it will the plug-in provider receive the information that you have called up the corresponding website from our website. In addition, the data referred to in Paragraph 3 of this declaration are transmitted. By activating the plug-in, your personal data are transferred to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (in the case of US providers, in the United States). Since the plug-in provider collects data via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies via your browser's security settings before clicking on the grayed-out box.

We have no control over the collected data and data processing operations, nor are we aware of the full scope of data collection, the purposes of processing or the storage periods. Nor is any information available to us regarding the erasure of the collected data by the plug-in provider.

The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the needs-based design of its website. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular (also for users who are not logged in) in order to display demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider to exercise this right. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our website and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-in is Article 6(1), Sentence 1, Litera f GDPR.

The data transfer takes place regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected by us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you press the activated button and link the page, for instance, the plug-in provider will also store this information in your user account and communicate it publicly to your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this allows you to avoid such an allocation to your profile by the plug-in provider.

Further information on the purpose and scope of the data collection and processing by the plug-in provider can be found in the following data protection declarations of these providers. There you will also find further information on your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.
