2. WHAT DATA DO WE PROCESS, FOR WHAT PURPOSE AND ON WHAT BASIS?
We may process your personal data in a number of situations, for example if you use our legal services as a client, receive our e-mail newsletter or apply for a job with us. Below, we briefly describe the situations in which we process personal data, for what purposes and on what legal basis.
If you use our services, we will process personal data. These include your name, address details, e-mail address and telephone number and/or details of your employees, business relations, counterparty, bank account, etc. In respect of the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act, we are in some cases obliged to process additional information, including a copy of your identity document.
We use this personal data for the performance of the agreement you have concluded with us, for invoicing our services, for collecting claims and for complying with obligations under laws and regulations.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data is: necessary (i) for the performance of the agreement with our clients, (ii) for the protection of our legitimate interests, or those of a third party and/or (iii) to comply with legal obligation to which we are subject.
ii. e-mail newsletter and invitations to seminars/meetings
We send our clients our e-mail newsletter on a regular basis, unless they object to it. It is also possible to subscribe to our e-mail newsletter through the form on our website. In the newsletter, we will keep you informed of developments within our field of expertise or we may invite you to seminars or other meetings.
Of course, you always have the opportunity to unsubscribe. This can be done, for example, by using the unsubscribe link in the newsletter or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For sending the e-mail newsletter, we process your name and e-mail address. The legal basis for this processing of personal data is: necessary to fulfil our legitimate interests in the area of marketing.
If you apply to us, we will process the personal data you provide, including your CV and motivation letter. This personal data is used exclusively for the selection and application process. The legal basis for this processing of personal data is: necessary for us to fulfil our legitimate interests with regard to the assessment of your application.
iv Other business relationships, including suppliers
We also process personal data of other business relations, including fellow lawyers, advisers, suppliers or other partners of our firm. We process the data in order, for example, to keep the relations informed of the developments within our firm, our activities and meetings or to send the e-mail newsletter.
The legal basis for this processing of personal data is: necessary (i) for the fulfilment of the agreement with our suppliers/partners and/or (ii) for the protection of our legitimate interests in the area of relationship management and marketing.
3. HOW SAFE ARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
In accordance with the Privacy Act, we have taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure your personal data against loss or any other form of unlawful processing.
4. TO WHOM DO WE PROVIDE PERSONAL DATA?
In connection with our services, it may happen that we share personal data with third parties. This may be necessary, for example, as part of the implementation of the agreement we have with you or to comply with a legal obligation incumbent upon us.
5. HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We do not process your personal data longer than necessary for the purpose for which it is processed. If we no longer need to process the personal data, we will delete or anonymise the personal data, unless (i) we are reqired by law (e.g. tax legislation) or (ii) by a legal obligation to provide evidence to keep certain personal data longer. In which case, only those personal data that are specifically necessary for that purpose will be retained for such longer period. On the advice of the Dutch Bar Association (Nederlandse Orde van Advocaten), it is necessary to retain certain personal data in our files for a period of up to 20 years. If there is a (prospective) dispute or (legal) procedure, we may also keep your personal data for a longer period.
6. TRANSMISSION OUTSIDE THE EEA
Some of our suppliers are located outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”), including the United States. If these suppliers process your personal data on our behalf, we will ensure that appropriate safeguards are in place, which, in accordance with the GDPR, provide an equivalent and adequate level of protection of your rights and freedoms. We do this, for example, by ensuring that the supplier is bound by the Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission. For more information on the safeguards for transfers outside the EEA, please contact us at email@example.com.
7. EXERCISE OF YOUR RIGHTS
Requests to access, rectify, erase, restrict or receive your personal data or other questions regarding the processing of your personal data can be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the unlikely event that we cannot comply with your request, we will always explain it in more detail. If you wish to receive your personal data from us, and we agree, we will transfer this personal data to you or another party designated by you in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable form.
If you wish to withdraw your consent or object to the (further) processing of your personal data, please contact us at email@example.com. In response to your objection, we will remove your personal data, unless we are obliged to retain the personal data in question on compelling legitimate grounds or due to a statutory obligation. If the latter is the case, we will inform you of this and explain our consideration.
If you have any complaints about the way we process your personal data or handle your requests, you can also contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org. If this does not lead to a solution, you can of course always make use of your right to submit a complaint to the Authority for the Protection of Personal Data (www.autoriteitpersoonsgegevens.nl) or appeal to the competent court.
