We collect and process personal data (personal name, e-mail, telephone number, name of company) provided by you via our contact form on the Law Firm Fatur Menard website when you send us your inquiry. We only provide access to this personal data to our authorized personnel of Law Firm Fatur Menard who process your inquiry; and are bound by confidentiality.
HOW DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We collect your personal data only when this is strictly necessary and in accordance with the purpose for which they have been provided. We will not use personal data for any other purpose.
If you are our client or potential employee, the legal basis for the processing of personal data is the performance of a contract or taking steps on your request prior to entering into a contract (e.g. answering your questions and comments, meeting your requirements, submitting and receiving bids, communicating with you, processing an application or signing up for a job).
We also process your personal data in order to comply with legal obligations that are imposed on us (e.g. reporting to tax and other competent authorities and for other disclosures prescribed by law, carrying out customer due diligence and other tasks and measures stipulated in anti-money laundering legislation).
In certain cases, we also process your personal data for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party, except where your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms override such interests (e.g. preventing fraud and misuse of services, maintaining physical and IT security, enforcing legal claims).
You are obliged to provide your personal data in cases where the provision of your personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to conclude a contract. When you do not provide us with the requested information, we shall not be able to provide our legal services, receive and process your applications and inquiries, and to fully adhere to legal obligations.
The Law Firm Fatur Menard will, in certain cases and if appropriate, ask you to give consent to the processing of personal data. In such cases, you have the right to withhold or withdraw consent at any time without detriment, whereby the withdrawal of consent shall not retrospectively render processing unlawful. Providing personal data is voluntary and the supply of services will never be made contingent on consent to the processing which is not necessary for the service being supplied.
In certain cases, we also process special categories of personal data (e.g. racial or ethnic origin, medical diagnosis and other data concerning health, information on trade union membership, biometric data etc.), especially when such processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, for the purposes of carrying out obligations and exercising rights in the field of employment or for reasons of substantial public interest.
WITH WHOM DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Your personal data are disclosed only to employees of Law Firm Fatur Menard and its permanent experts that are all bound by confidentiality. We also disclose your personal data to carefully selected outsourced service providers, i.e. processors and other recipients of personal data. Processors are our business partners which provide us with certain services and process personal data on our behalf and based on our instructions. In such cases, we always enter into appropriate data processing agreements in which the recipients are bound by the same level of data protection as if we were processing the data ourselves. We also disclose your personal data to outside recipients (e.g. authorities and other controllers) but only if there is a lawful basis for doing so.
WHERE DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
As a rule, we only process your personal data within the EU and EEA. In certain cases, however, we may also transfer your personal data to recipients in third countries, whereby we guarantee that an adequate level of data protection shall be ensured and that all legal conditions pertaining to data transfers to third countries shall be met.
We can only transfer personal data if:
- we carry out the transfer to one of the countries or international organisations for which the European Commission adopted an adequacy decision, or to one of the countries on the Information Commissioner’s list of third countries with an adequate level of data protection;
- the transfer is subject to appropriate safeguards under Article 46 of the General Data Protection Regulation (e.g. standard data protection clauses, binding corporate rules);
- conditions for derogations for specific situations under Article 49 of the General Data Protection Regulation are met.
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
The Law firm Fatur Menard will process your personal data to the extent and for the time necessary to achieve the purposes of the processing. Personal data is thus processed until the purpose is fulfilled or within the limits of the limitation periods for obligations that could arise from the processing of these personal data. In cases when the retention period of the personal data is prescribed by law, Law firm Fatur Menard will keep the personal data in line with the retention periods prescribed by law.
In specific cases, where the legal basis for processing is your consent, we will keep your personal data until such consent is withdrawn. Once that consent is withdrawn, we will also stop processing your personal data, if there is no other lawful basis for further processing of your personal data.
WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS?
The existence and extent of your rights depend on the circumstances of a case. In accordance with the conditions set out in the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to request from Law firm Fatur Menard access to and rectification or erasure of personal data or restriction of processing concerning the data subject and to object to processing as well as the right to data portability. More information on your rights are available here.

The effective protection and safeguarding of personal data are of great importance to us, therefore we have implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures for protection of all personal data and to safeguard them against accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure of, or access to personal data.
