Cookie statement

In order to conduct its business activities, Lexence processes personal data, as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation (EUR Regulation 2016/679 of April 2017, “GDPR”). In this context, personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person such as name, identification number and location data.

Principles

Lexence processes personal data in a secure manner and respects the privacy of data subjects. In doing so, Lexence adheres to the following principles:

Lawfulness, fairness, transparency
Personal data is processed in accordance with the law and with due care and attention.

Basis and purpose limitation
Lexence ensures that personal data is collected and processed only for specified, explicit and lawful purposes. Personal data is only processed for legitimate reasons. Personal data is processed in order to perform agreements with clients, answer a clients’ requests for information and/or meet legal requirements.

Data minimisation
Lexence only processes the personal data that is required for the stated purpose. Lexence strives to minimise the processing of data. Where possible, less or no personal data is processed. The personal data that Lexence processes includes name, address, place of residence, bank account number, registration data for seminars, and identification data in the context of client acceptance.

Special personal data
Lexence has a general policy of not processing special personal data. Nevertheless, Lexence’s employees may come into contact with the processing of special personal data in the practice of their profession (for example, as an employment lawyer). In such cases, the provisions of the GDPR will be complied with.

Retention period
Personal data is not retained for longer than necessary. The retention of personal data may be necessary in order to perform duties properly or comply with legal obligations.

Integrity and confidentiality
Lexence treats personal data as confidential and handles it in a confidential manner. As such, personal data is only processed by persons who are bound by a duty of confidentiality and for the purpose for which is has been collected. To that end, Lexence ensures appropriate security of personal data. Lexence properly secures all data traffic against unauthorised and unlawful processing and against loss, destruction, modification and publication.

Sharing with third parties
In the event of work with external parties involving the processing of personal data, Lexence makes agreements on the requirements that this processing must meet. Lexence actively manages these agreements.

Subsidiarity and proportionality
In order to achieve the aim for which the personal data is processed, intrusions of the data subject’s privacy are kept to a minimum. If the data subject’s interests are adversely affected, this may not be disproportionate to the purpose to be served by the processing.

Rights of the data subjects
Lexence honours all privacy rights of data subjects. You can request a summary of the personal data Lexence has on file for you at any time. You can also object to the recording of your personal data and have your personal data corrected or deleted.

When Lexence asks data subjects for permission to process personal data, it simultaneously and unequivocally offers the opportunity to withdraw this permission at any time.
