Privacy Policy for our website

As of: April 2022

The protection of your privacy is very important to us and a matter of course. The legal requirements demand comprehensive transparency about the processing of personal data. Only if the processing is comprehensible for you as a data subject, you are sufficiently informed about the meaning, purpose and scope of the processing. Below, we therefore inform you in detail about the processing of your data and your rights with regard to your personal data that is processed by us when you use this website.

If you have any further questions regarding data protection, please feel free to contact us by e-mail via datenschutz@lsport.eu.

3. General information on data processing

We process personal data only to the extent permitted by law. Any disclosure of personal data will only take place in the cases described below. The personal data will be deleted or protected by technical measures (e.g. anonymization) as soon as the purpose of the processing no longer applies. This also occurs when a required storage period expires, unless it is necessary for us to continue storing the personal data for another storage purpose. Unless we are required by law to store the data for a longer period of time or to disclose it to third parties (in particular law enforcement agencies), the decision as to which personal data we process depends on which functions of the website you use in each individual case.

Please note that links on our website may take you to other websites that are not operated by us but by third parties. Such links are either clearly marked by us or are recognizable by a change in the address line of your browser. We are not responsible for compliance with data protection regulations and secure processing of your personal data on these websites operated by third parties.

4. Processing during the use of the website

When you visit our website, the browser used on your device automatically sends information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a so-called log file. The following information is collected and stored until automated deletion:

  • IP address of the requesting computer shortened by the last octet,
  • date and time of access,
  • name and URL of the accessed file,
  • website from which the access was made (referrer URL),
  • browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer as well as
  • the name of your access provider.

The aforementioned data is processed by us for the following purposes:

  • Ensuring a smooth connection setup of the website,
  • ensuring a comfortable use of our website,
  • checking and guaranteeing system security and stability, and
  • for other administrative purposes.

The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. f GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the aforementioned purposes of data collection. In no case do we use the collected data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person. We delete this data automatically after three months. We do not combine this personal data with other data sources. Disclosure only takes place insofar as this is necessary for the operation of our website, e.g. with the storage at our host provider. A transfer to a third country or to an international organization is not intended.

5. Processing by using individual services via our website

Services are available on our website for which we collect personal data from you if you choose to use them.

a) Contact form / Contact us by e-mail

If you use the contact form on our website or send us an e-mail, the personal data you provide there will be processed by us. This information is transmitted by your browser or e-mail client and processed in our IT systems. The processing of this personal data is necessary to respond to your inquiry. In addition, your IP address and the date and time of the contact request are stored.

The processing of your personal data serves to answer your inquiry and the purpose of preventing misuse of the contact form and ensuring the security of our IT systems. These processing activities are lawful because responding to your inquiry and protecting our information technology systems provide legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. f GDPR. If a contract is concluded after you have contacted us, the further processing of your data is based on the legal basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. b GDPR.

The personal data will be processed as long as it is necessary to respond to your inquiry. Should your inquiry lead to a subsequent conclusion of a contract, processing will take place as long as this is necessary for the implementation of pre-contractual measures or for the performance of the contract. If no contract is concluded, the personal data is routinely deleted every 6 months at the latest. We do not combine your personal data with other data sources. A disclosure of your personal data to third parties does not take place. A transfer to a third country or to an international organization is not intended. The provision of your personal data in connection with the use of the contact form on our website or the sending of an e-mail to us is voluntary, but a use of the contact form or the sending of an e-mail is not possible without the provision.

b) Google Maps

We use services of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”) on our contact page of the website to make it easier for you to find our law firm. Google is responsible for the data protection compliant operation of this service. We integrate these services exclusively via a link so that you, as a visitor to our website, have the best possible control over your personal data.

Google has its registered office partly outside the EU or the EEA – an adequate level of data protection according to the GDPR may therefore not exist. The link to Google services is therefore identified on our website by a clear notice. To ensure data protection on our website, we only use such plugins together with the so-called “two-click” solution. This application prevents the plugins integrated on our website from transmitting data to the respective provider when you first enter the page. Only when you activate the respective plugin by clicking the associated button, a direct connection to the provider’s server is established (consent). As soon as you activate the plugin, the respective provider receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. At the same time, Google may place cookies on your terminal device, unless you have prohibited the use of cookies in your browser, or read cookies. Location data may also be collected if you allow this in your browser. Activating the plugin provides consent within the meaning of Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. a GDPR. You can withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future.

The purpose and scope of data collection by Google and the further processing and use of your data in this course, as well as your rights in this regard and settings options for protecting your privacy, can be found in Google’s privacy policy at:

https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

c) LinkedIn

We also use services of the social network of LinkedIn Inc., 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“LinkedIn”) on our news page of the website in order to provide you with up-to-date content on our website, to make our website better known in this way and to interact with our target groups. LinkedIn is responsible for the data protection compliant operation of this service. We integrate these services exclusively via a link so that you, as a visitor to our website, have the best possible control over your personal data.

LinkedIn has its registered office partly outside the EU or the EEA – an adequate level of data protection according to the GDPR may therefore not exist. The browser plug-ins and links are therefore identified on our website by a clear notice. To ensure data protection on our website, we only use such plug-ins together with the so-called “two-click” solution. This application prevents the plugins integrated on our website from transmitting data to the respective provider when you first enter the page. Only when you activate the respective plugin by clicking the associated button, a direct connection to the provider’s server is established (consent). As soon as you activate the plugin, the respective provider receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you are logged into your respective social media account (e.g. Facebook) at the same time, the respective provider can assign the visit to our pages to your user account. Activating the plugin provides consent within the meaning of Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. a GDPR. You can withdraw this consent at any time with effect for the future.

The purpose and scope of data collection by the social network, as well as the further processing and use of your data in this course, as well as your rights in this regard and settings options for protecting your privacy, can be found in LinkedIn’s privacy policy:

6. Cookies

We only use the technically necessary “pll_language” cookie on our site (storage period one year). This cookie is set by the Polylang plugin for WordPress-powered websites to save the language settings when viewing the website. The use of the “pll_language” cookie therefore allows us to reliably display the website to you in the selected language setting.

Cookies are very small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware. In the cookie, information is stored that arises in each case in connection with the specific device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity.

Temporary cookies such as the “pll_language” cookie remain stored on your device for a certain period of time beyond your visit to our website in order to optimize the user experience during your next visit to the website, unless you delete them yourself or an automatic deletion by your web browser takes place. If you visit our site again to use our services, the “pll_language” cookie automatically recognizes that you have already been with us and what language settings you have made so that the website appears in the language required for your optimal website visit.

Cookies have various functions. Numerous cookies, such as the “pll_language” cookie, are technically necessary, as certain website functions would not work without them (in the case of the “pll_language” cookie, the display of the website in the language you have selected). Technically necessary cookies are set by us on the basis of Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. f GDPR, unless another legal basis is specified. We have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and optimized provision of our services.

Other cookies are used to evaluate user behavior or display advertising (marketing cookies). We do not use these on our website.

You can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or device, or so that a message always appears before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website. You can find out about this option for the most commonly used browsers via the following links:

7. Data processing in the context of the performance of the mandate

As attorneys, we work in your interest and advise you in various areas of law, review and draft contracts and/or conduct litigation for you. In individual cases, this depends on the contract concluded with you. Without the processing of your personal data or documents provided to us, proper performance of the mandate would not be possible; the legal basis for this data processing by us is therefore Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. b GDPR.

In addition, it follows from Sec. 50 of the Federal Lawyers’ Act (“BRAO”) that we are obliged to document our mandate processing. The legal basis for the processing of your data in connection with this documentation is Section 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. c GDPR.

Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. A transfer to a third country or to an international organization is not intended.

8. Data processing of applicants

In our law  firm, we process personal data of persons who apply to us. This includes, in particular, the applicants’ basic data (details such as title, first name, surname, date of birth if applicable, place of residence if applicable, gender if applicable), applicants’ contact data and other application data that you provide as an applicant as part of your application (e.g. profile picture as well as other documents such as resume, cover letter, overall application, certificates).

We process data of our applicants for the purpose of carrying out the application process, in particular for reviewing applications, contacting the applicant and conducting interviews to evaluate and select suitable applicants. The legal basis for processing for these purposes is Sec. 26 (1) of the German Federal Data Protection Act (“BDSG”).

In the event of employment, the data will be transferred to the personnel file. Information on the storage period can be found in the information on the processing of personal data of our employees. Otherwise, the data will be stored for evidence purposes for any assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims for a period of six months after completion of the application process, but will then be routinely deleted.

Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties. A transfer to a third country or to an international organization is not intended.

The provision of this personal data is voluntary. However, if the data is not provided, it will not be possible to carry out an application procedure and, if applicable, to hire you.

9. Data transmission

Your personal data will not be transmitted to third parties for purposes other than those listed below. We will only pass on your personal data to third parties if:

  1. you have given your explicit consent pursuant to Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. a GDPR,
  2. the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. f GDPR is necessary to assert, exercise or defend legal claims and there is no reason to assume that you have an overriding interest worthy of protection not disclosing your data,
  3. in the event that a legal obligation exists for the transfer pursuant to Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. c GDPR,
  4. this is legally permissible and required by Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. b GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you, or
  5. this is done to a service provider acting on our behalf and on our exclusive instructions, whom we have carefully selected (Art. 28 sec. 1 GDPR) and with whom we have concluded a corresponding contract for order processing (Art. 28 sec. 3 GDPR), which obliges our service provider, among other things, to implement appropriate safety measures and grants us extensive control powers.

Transmission to the service providers referred to in point (e) for the purpose of order processing shall take place in the following areas: technical provision and programming of the website, user communication, provision of software as a service.

10. Rights of the data subject

As a data subject of a processing of personal data you have the right,

  1. to request information about your personal data processed by us in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the category of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data has been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, as well as the existence of automated decision-making including profiling and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details;
  2. in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR, request the rectification of inaccurate personal data stored by us or completion of your personal data stored by us;
  3. in accordance with Art. 17 GDPR, request the erasure of your personal data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims;
  4. request the restriction of the processing of your personal data in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, insofar as the accuracy of the data is disputed by you, the processing is unlawful, but you object to its erasure and we no longer need the data, but you need it for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims or you have objected to the processing in accordance with Art. 21 GDPR;
  5. in accordance with Art. 20 GDPR, to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another controller; and
  6. complain to a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or our registered office. The supervisory authority responsible for our registered office is

The Bavarian State Commissioner for Data Protection, P.O. Box 22 12 19, 80502 Munich, Germany, phone: +49 (0) 89 212 672-0, fax: +49 (0) 89 212 672-50, e-mail: poststelle@datenschutz-bayern.de.

To exercise your data protection rights, with the exception of the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, simply send an email to datenschutz@lssport.eu.

11. Right of withdrawal in case of processing based on consent

If your personal data is processed on the basis of consent pursuant to Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. a GDPR, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time without giving reasons. This has the consequence that we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent for the future. However, the withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the withdrawal.

If you wish to exercise your right of withdrawal, please send an e-mail to datenschutz@lssport.eu.

12. Right to object

If your personal data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 sec. 1 (1) lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, provided that there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation. If your objection is directed against direct marketing, you have a general right of objection; a statement of reasons is not required for these cases.

If you wish to exercise your right to object, please send an e-mail to datenschutz@lssport.eu.

13. Data security

We use the most common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. Usually this is a 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a single page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form is indicated by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.

We also use appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. We continuously adapt our security measures in line with technological developments.

However, we would like to point out that data transmission on the Internet (e.g. when communicating by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

14. Modification of this privacy policy

Due to the further development of our website and services or due to changed legal or regulatory requirements, it may become necessary to change this privacy policy.
