We process personal data (data that directly or indirectly identify natural persons) that we receive from you or third parties involved as part of the client relationship or that we collect ourselves. RoH Rechtsanwälte AG, Zurich, is responsible for the processing of personal data described in this data protection declaration.
You or the persons concerned provide us with some of the personal data if you or they contact us by e-mail or telephone and inquire about our services. This includes, for example, name and contact details as well as information about the role of the person concerned in the company or organization for which you or the respective contact persons work or on whose behalf you or they contact us. We also process personal data that we receive in our correspondence with third parties (namely clients, counterparties, authorities and courts and their employees or other contact persons) within the scope of the client relationship (e.g. name, contact details, date of birth, information on the employment relationship, income and financial situation, family circumstances or state of health). We also collect some personal data ourselves, e.g. from public registers or on websites.
We process the types of personal data mentioned primarily in order to provide, document and invoice our legal services.
We also process the contact details of the client or their employees or other contact persons for marketing purposes (using any means of communication such as email, social media, post or telephone) to be informed about publications, events, news, services or products of interest could be to inform.
In order to achieve the purposes described in this data protection declaration, it may be necessary for us to pass on personal data to the following categories of recipients: external service providers, clients, counterparties and their legal representatives, business partners with whom we may have to coordinate the provision of legal services, and authorities and courts.
The personal data we process in our area of responsibility in Switzerland and worldwide. However, we can transmit the personal data to recipients (namely clients, counterparties or authorities) who in turn process the personal data in other countries, including those that do not guarantee a level of data protection comparable to Swiss law. We will do the latter based on consent or standard contractual clauses, or if it is necessary to fulfill a contract or to enforce legal claims].
We store the personal data only for as long as this is necessary to process the client relationship, there is a statutory storage and documentation obligation or we do have an overriding private or public interest in doing so. We take proportionate and reasonable precautions to protect personal data from loss, unauthorized changes or unauthorized access by third parties. If you provide us with personal data via a third party (e.g. via your employees or other contact persons), it is up to you to inform them in general about the processing by legal service providers (such as us) or other external service providers (e.g. in a data protection declaration for employees).
We would like to point out that we use external IT service providers and cloud providers with servers in Switzerland as part of the mandate management. We then use certain IT services and means of communication that may be associated with data security risks (e.g. email, video conferences). It is up to you to inform us about the desire for special security measures.
We have a legitimate interest in the processing of personal data in accordance with the purposes mentioned. Some processing is also necessary so that we can fulfill our contractual obligations towards you or our legal obligations (e.g. storage obligations).
Affected persons have in particular the right to information about the personal data stored about them and the purpose of the data processing, the right to correction and deletion or restriction of the processing of their personal data, the right to object to the processing, the right to appeal to a competent supervisory authority and to Data transfer/portability. However, please note that conditions and exceptions apply to these rights. To the extent permitted or required by law, we may refuse requests to exercise these rights. For example, we may or must store or otherwise process the personal data for legal reasons despite requests to delete the personal data or restrict processing.
No consent is required on the part of the client, their employees or other contact persons in the data protection declaration. The data protection declaration only provides information about the type, scope and purpose of the use of personal data by RoH Rechtsanwälte AG. RoH Rechtsanwälte AG reserves the right to unilaterally change the content of the aforementioned data protection declaration at any time and without notice.
