Privacy Policy

LINGUA LEGIS  GmbH, Rossmarkt 21, 60311 Frankfurt am Main, collects and processes your personal data in accordance with the provisions of data protection law and this privacy policy. The following is intended to inform you about the type, scope and purpose of our collection and use of personal data.

Server log files
When you visit our website, your Internet browser automatically transmits data to our web server for technical reasons. In this context, data such as the date and time of access, the referrer URL, the requested file, the volume of transferred data, the browser type and version, and the operating system of the requesting computer as well as its IP address are logged. This data is stored separately from other data you enter when you use our website. The data transmitted for technical reasons is analysed solely for statistical purposes and deleted thereafter. It is not possible for us to attribute this data to a specific person.

Contract data
If you decide to enter into an agreement with us, we collect and use your personal data to the extent necessary in order to establish, formulate or amend our contractual relationship with you. We are not permitted to disclose the data to third parties or process such data outside the European Economic Area (EEA) except in compliance with the applicable EU data protection regulations. In such cases, we or any third parties that may be involved will comply with all requirements and measures arising as a result of this.

Usage data
We collect and process personal data to the extent necessary to allow use of our website or to bill any online services offered for a fee. In this context, attributes to identify the user and data relating to the beginning, end and extent of use are collected.

We are allowed to generate anonymous user profiles (user profiles under a pseudonym) for purposes of advertising, market research and customised design of our website. You have the right to object to this use of your data. We may not, nor will we, merge the user profiles with data on the bearer of the pseudonym.

Disclosure of data
If so ordered by an authorised body, we may and must provide information about the aforementioned data in the individual case. Such exception shall apply where this is necessary to enable the prosecution of crimes or to avert danger, to allow national security or military counter-intelligence agencies to perform their statutory functions, or to enable the enforcement of claims of rightsholders.

Security of processing
To protect your personal data and ensure IT security we have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures. Such measures are audited on a regular basis to ensure that they are effective and compliant with the state of the art.

Contact form and registration
If you register via our website or send us requests using the contact form, your details from these forms will be stored by us in order to process your request. For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, our site uses SSL encryption technology.

No cookies will be stored on your computer when you use our website. This will not limit its functionality.

Google Maps
Our website uses Google Maps in order to display our address visually and to allow you to create directions to our office. This map service is provided by Google, Inc.

Therefore, when you visit our website, information about the use of the website, including your IP address, may be transmitted to Google in the U.S. Since your browser establishes a direct connection to Google's servers, we have no control over the amount of data collected by Google in this way.

Rights of data subjects
As a data subject, you have the right to obtain information from us about the data we have stored in relation to you and the origin thereof. This information may also be provided in electronic form if you so require.

You also have the right to request that your stored personal data be rectified, erased or made unavailable.

Any consent granted by data subjects, for example to receiving newsletters and for permanent storage of their personal data may be revoked at any time.

Non-compliance with the rights of data subjects constitutes an infringement of data protection law provisions and may be sanctioned by the supervisory authorities.

Data subjects have the right to lodge an objection with the competent supervisory authority.

Erasure of data
We erase data once the purpose has lapsed, taking into account retention periods and the rights of data subjects, insofar as this is not contrary to a legitimate interest of ours or any other statutory provision requiring a longer retention period.
