Starting points

Lexence handles personal data in a safe manner and respects the privacy of data subjects. In doing so, Lexence complies with the following principles:

Lawfulness, fairness and transparency
Personal data is processed in accordance with the law and in a fair and careful manner.

Grounds and purpose limitation
Lexence ensures that personal data is only collected and processed for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes. Personal data is only processed on legitimate grounds. Personal data is processed in order to be able to perform an agreement with a client, to fulfil a request for information submitted by a client, or in order to meet statutory requirements.

Data minimisation
Lexence only processes personal data that is minimally required for the predetermined purpose of the processing. Lexence strives to minimise personal data processing. Fewer or no personal data is processed whenever possible. The personal data that Lexence processes includes: name, address, city of residence, bank account number, seminar registration information, and identification details in the context of client acceptance.

Special personal data
In addition to Lexence’s general policy not to process any special personal data, Lexence’s employees may come into contact with the processing of special personal data while exercising their profession (for example, as a lawyer practising employment law). In those cases, the provisions of the GDPR will be respected.

Retention period
Personal data is not kept for any longer than is necessary. It may be necessary to store personal data in order to be able to perform certain tasks well or in order to meet statutory obligations.

Integrity and confidentiality
Lexence observes confidentiality with respect to personal data and handles such data in confidence. Thus personal data is only processed by individuals subject to a duty of confidentiality and for the purposes for which it has been collected. Lexence ensures appropriate security for personal data in that regard. Lexence properly secures data traffic against unauthorised and unlawful processing, against loss of, destruction of, damage to, changes to, and disclosure of personal data.

Sharing with third parties
In case of cooperation with external parties involving the processing of personal data, Lexence will make agreements about the requirements to be satisfied by such processing. Lexence actively manages those agreements.

Subsidiarity and proportionality
In achieving the purpose for which personal data is being processed, violation of the personal privacy of the data subject is limited as much as possible. If the interests of the data subject are violated, that violation may not be disproportionate to the purpose to be served by the processing.

Rights of data subjects
Lexence respects all (privacy) rights of data subjects. You are entitled to submit a written request for a summary of your personal data to Lexence. It is also possible to object to the recording of your personal data, or to have your personal data corrected or erased.

Any time Lexence requests data subjects to consent to the processing of personal data, Lexence will unambiguously offer the possibility to withdraw that consent as well.
