As lawyers and trustees we are used to receiving and protecting confidential information and data of our clients and principals.

1.1. NAME AND ADDRESS OF THE DATA CONTROLLER AND THE DATA PROTECTION OFFICER

 

The Data Controllers within the meaning of the GDPR are LNR Lorenz Nesensohn Rabanser, Attorneys at Law., LNR Trust reg., and LNR Service Anstalt, all Landstrasse 33, 9490 Vaduz, Liechtenstein, office@lnr-law.com Tel +423 239 96 96. In the following to these Data Controllers shall be referred to as „we“,„us“ or „our“.

 

You can contact our common Data Protection Officer under DSB@lnr-law.com or at the above postal address with the supplement «To the LNR Data Protection Officer».

1.2. COLLECTION AND STORAGE OF PERSONAL DATA AND NATURE AND PURPOSE OF THE USE OF DATA

 

We only process necessary data, that may differ however, depending on the particular category of persons involved.

If you contact or mandate us, we in particular collect the following information:

  • Personal details (e.g. salutation, first name, last name)

  • Address and contact details (e.g. address, e-mail address, land line/mobile phone number)

  • Information necessary for asserting and defending your rights within the scope of the mandate.

 

The purpose of the collection of this data is:

  • to enable us to identify you as our client;

  • to provide you with proper legal advice and representation;

  • to conduct correspondence with you;

  • for invoicing purposes;

  • to settle, assert or defend against any possibly existing (liability) claims.

 

Without this data, we are unable to enter into or maintain a client relationship or to provide our services. It is possible that we process data that is not collected directly from you, but for example from other contractual partners, from third parties generally, from publicly accessible sources or from other people concerned.

The processing of your data is performed generally upon your request for services, and is necessary pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit b GDPR for the aforementioned purposes (performance of contract or pre-contractual measures) for the adequate handling of the mandate and for the mutual fulfilment of obligations arising from the client relationship.

Furthermore, your data is processed in order to fulfil legal duties (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR) or due to public interest (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. e GDPR), in particular in order to adhere to statutory and supervisory requirements (e.g. DSG, Lawyers Act, provisions concerning due diligence, anti-money laundering and prevention of market abuse, tax laws and tax agreements).

In addition, your data can be processed to protect legitimate interests by us or third parties (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR) for specifically defined purposes, in particular to assert and enforce claims, to ensure IT security and IT operations as well as for building and equipment security.

Besides, your data may be processed on the basis of your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR). You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. This also applies to consent given prior to the entry into force of the GDPR. The withdrawal of consent shall, however, not affect the lawfulness of the data processed prior to the withdrawal of consent.

We also reserve the right to further process personal data that was collected for one of the aforementioned purposes for the other purposes too, if this is compatible with the original purpose or permitted or provided for by law (e.g. reporting obligations).

1.3. RECIPIENTS OR CATEGORIES OF RECIPIENTS OF THE PERSONAL DATA

Within our enterprises, employees may use your data only, if they need them to comply with our contractual, statutory and supervisory obligations and to protect legitimate interests. Third parties may also obtain personal data for these purposes, this includes processors, for example in the category of IT or communication services.

Your personal data will also be transferred to third parties, insofar as this is necessary in the context of mandate relationships. This includes in particular the transfer of data to court opponents and their representatives as well as courts and other administrative authorities for the purpose of correspondence as well as to assert and defend your rights.

1.4. TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA TO THIRD PARTY STATES

 

Data is only transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (so-called third countries) within the context of adequacy decisions of the European Commission or if this is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures or the performance of a contract, if you have given us your express consent (e.g. within the context of specific services), if the transfer is necessary for important reasons of public interests or is stipulated by law.

1.5. STORAGE PERIOD FOR PERSONAL DATA

 

Generally, the personal data collected by us shall be retained until expiration of the statutory retention period for attorneys-at-law or trustees (10 years from the date on which representation ends) and thereafter be deleted, unless we deem a longer retention period necessary pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c GDPR on the basis of statutory obligations under tax-, company- or supervisory law with regard to retention and documentation, due to applicable statutes of limitation, for reasons of preservation of evidence or if you have consented to longer retention in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

1.6. YOUR DATA PROTECTION RIGHTS

 

You are entitled to be informed about your personal data that we process. In particular, you may demand information on the processing purposes, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been disclosed, the planned retention period, the right of rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or opposition, data transfer (if this does not cause any disproportionate effort), the source of your data, if they were not collected by us, as well as the existence of an automated decision-making including profiling.

You also have the right to revoke any consent granted for the use of your personal data at any time.

If you believe that the processing of your personal data by us conflicts with the applicable data protection law, you have the opportunity to complain to the Liechtenstein Data Protection Agency.
