If you mandate us, we collect the following information:
- title, first name, surname

This data is collected,

- to enable us to deal with possible liability claims against you and the assertion of possible other claims against you.
The data processing is carried out at your request and is necessary for the purposes mentioned above to enable us to deal with your case appropriately and to fulfil the reciprocal obligations arising therefrom in accordance with Article 6 para. 1, sent. 1, point b of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
The personal data collected by us will be stored until the expiry of the statutory retention period for lawyers (6 years after the end of the calendar year in which the lawyer ceases to act for the client) and then deleted, unless we are obliged to store the data for a longer period pursuant to Article 6, para. 1, sent. 1, point c of the GDPR due to storage and documentation obligations under tax and commercial law (resulting from the German Commercial Code, the German Criminal Code or the German Fiscal Code), or you have consented to the storage of your data for a longer period in accordance with Article 6, para. 1, sent. 1, point a of the GDPR.
3. Forwarding of data to third parties
Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.
To the extent that it is necessary according to Article 6, para. 1, sent. 1, points c and e of the GDPR for dealing with your case, your personal data will be forwarded to third parties. This includes, in particular, passing your data on to opposing parties and their representatives (in particular, their lawyers) in legal proceedings, as well as to courts and other public authorities, for the purpose of correspondence and to enable us to assert and defend your legal rights. The data passed on may only be used by such third parties exclusively for the purposes mentioned.
Client confidentiality remains unaffected. As far as data is concerned that is subject to client confidentiality, it will only be passed on to third parties in consultation with you.
4. Rights of the persons affected
