  1. Purposes of processing personal data in the provision of legal services

The object of our business is the practice of advocacy pursuant to Section 1 of Act No. 85/1996 Coll., on Advocacy, as amended. In order to properly provide you with our legal services, we need your personal data to do so.

When providing legal services, we process the following personal data: your name and surname, date of birth, identification number (ID number), tax identification number (TIN), bank account number, residence, e-mail address, telephone number, our communications with each other, as well as information and documents you provide us for the purpose of providing legal services, as well as non-physical data about witnesses or counterparties. You will most often provide this information to us in a face-to-face meeting at our office (you can also provide us with basic contact details via the contact form on our website).

We use personal data for the following purposes:

  • We negotiate together to conclude a contract for the provision of legal services and then we execute the contract – we provide you with legal services. In this case, the processing of personal data is based on Article 6(1)(b) of the General Regulation, where the processing of the data is necessary for the performance of the contract to which the client is a party or for the implementation of measures taken prior to the conclusion of the contract at the request of the client;
  • To comply with legal obligations associated with the provision of legal services. In particular, we are obliged to keep accounting and tax records, as well as, pursuant to Section 25(1) of the Advocacy Act, to keep adequate documentation on the provision of legal services. In this case, the personal data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(c) of the General Regulation, where the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject;
  • The possible protection of our legal claims. In this case, personal data is processed on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) of the General Regulation, where processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests. In this case, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data.

Please note that the disclosure of personal data for the purpose of providing legal services is a contractual requirement. Without providing it, legal services cannot be properly provided. Therefore, if you refuse to provide us with the necessary personal data, it is possible that we may not be able to provide legal services.
