Basic concepts and explanations
Legal language is full of complex concepts and long sentences. We will therefore try to explain the basic concepts associated with your personal data. On 25 May 2018, the new Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46 / EC entered into force.
This long name is better known to all as "GDPR". GDPR regulates various obligations for personal data controllers - us, and rights for data subjects - you. Sometimes we use external companies or other entities to help us with the processing and to handle personal data in a certain way. These entities are called GDPR as processors of personal data.
What is meant by personal data? It is any information with which we can directly or indirectly identify you. We will directly identify you by your name, surname, birth number and other similar data. Indirectly through information in conjunction with other information.

What personal data do we process?
Our activity consists in providing legal services and related services. In order to provide these services, we need to obtain some of your personal information.
However, for the correct provision of our legal services, we will often need additional data, especially the data of your employees, business partners or persons against whom you are asserting your claims or who are asserting their claims against you. We may also obtain other information during the provision of services that is necessary for the proper fulfillment of the relationship. Sometimes we may also require so-called special categories of personal data (better known as sensitive personal data), for example in situations where we provide you with legal services in connection with non-pecuniary damage (especially to health).
Why do we process your personal data and what entitles us to do so?
As mentioned above, the basic reason why we process your personal data is the provision of legal and related services, in particular the organization of training in various legal areas. We pay attention to the security of your personal data, we only process the necessary data that is necessary for specific purposes and we try to regularly check their timeliness and relevance.
Any personal data controller may process personal data only if there is a legal reason for processing. In this case, the legal reason is the necessity to fulfill the contract. In other words, we need the data to be able to fulfill the obligations of our mutual contractual relationship. If we process special categories of personal data for the purpose of fulfilling a mutual contractual relationship, we will do so for the purpose of determining, enforcing or defending legal claims (in other words, so that we can defend your interests). We must also comply with certain legal obligations laid down in particular in the Law on Advocacy, the Law on Archiving and the File Service, the Law on Certain Measures against the Legalization of Proceeds from Crime and the Law on Value Added Tax.
However, it may happen that we also use your personal data for the purposes of defending or enforcing our legal claims, based on our legitimate interest. A typical example could be the use of your personal data in the case of judicial recovery of unpaid invoices.
The provided data are a contractual requirement, without their provision it is not possible to provide our legal services. If you refuse to provide this personal information, we may not be able to provide our services.
To whom will we pass on your personal data?
Your personal data is handled in many areas when providing services. In order to ensure the security of your personal data and at the same time provide fast legal services, the following processors and recipients of personal data help us with the processing of personal data:
SingleCase law system, the provider of which is SingleCase, sro, ID number 028 94 815, with its registered office at Zubatého 295/5, Smíchov, 150 00 Prague 5;
Microsoft, which runs the OneDrive cloud;
With your consent, we may pass on some of your personal information to our partner law firms and other entities with which we cooperate.
Where data are transferred to third countries, sufficient guarantees for the transfer are always used. In the case of transfers to the USA, these are only companies within the Privacy Shield.
How long do we keep your personal data?
The retention period of your personal data may vary from case to case. It is certain that we will process personal data for the period of providing our services, ie for the period of performance of the contract for the provision of legal services. Subsequently, we will keep your personal data for a period specified by individual laws, such as the Advocacy Act, the Accounting Act, the Archives and Records Service Act and the Act on Certain Measures against Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing.
We will also retain personal information for the purpose of defending our legal obligations, resolving disputes and enforcing our agreements.
We may also be subject to legal, contractual or similar obligations to retain various data. Examples include laws governing mandatory data retention, government regulations to retain data related to investigations, or data that must be retained for litigation purposes. In this case, we will keep the personal data for this period.
