CSP Advocates take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Responsible handling of your data is our highest priority. The registered office of CSP Advocates is located at Viktoria-Luise-Platz 12a in 10777 Berlin.

Your personal data are protected by CSP Advocates with regard to collection, use and processing pursuant to applicable data protection provisions. These comprise the provisions of the Bundesdatenschutzgesetz (BDSG) [German Federal Data Protection Act], the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data, the Telemediengesetz (TMG) [German Teleservices Act] and further data protection regulations. Personal data are protected i.e. any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person as defined by Art. 4 (1) of the GDPR. According to Art. 3 (1) BDSG, these are details concerning personal or material circumstances of an identified or identifiable natural person. Examples of this include name, address, telephone number or email address. We also protect the handling of your data by using relevant technological means such as virus, spyware and rootkit scanners or by encryption as well. Their proper functioning is monitored and regularly updated. To safeguard your data from unauthorised access by third parties, system access to your data is subject to multiple password protection at our company. Information is provided below on data which are collected on our homepage and how data are generally processed and used at our company. Where and in so far as we  use other service providers for the processing of your personal data, we cooperate only with providers who have undertaken to comply with data protection requirements.

Our online service can be used in principle without disclosing your personal data. When you access our website, log files are collected and stored on our server for security purposes. They are:
    browser type and version
    operating system used
    URL reference (websites previously visited)
    IP address (host name of the accessing computer)
    time of the server request

For data protection reasons, the host name or IP address of the client is rendered anonymous in the log files. Data collected can be evaluated for statistical purposes, whereby the individual user remains anonymous at all times. Automated decision-making or profiling pursuant to Art. 22 (1) to (4) GDPR does not take place.

Your data are furthermore stored and processed at our company to perform the services offered by us e.g. if you have purchased our products or if we provide support to you as part of our client service.

We collect personal data according to Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR to provide the services offered by us. Your data can also be collected and processed if you disclose them voluntarily e.g. through telephone or postal enquiries, consent to your inclusion in our client database, participate in surveys/market research or also by sending emails. Your consent provides here the basis for our processing activities according to Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR. Giving your consent is voluntary. There is no legal or contractual obligation to give consent beyond the use of data required to process the contract. We expressly draw your attention to the fact that a valid consent to the processing of data of children below the age of 16 cannot be given by such children themselves. Their consent will be replaced by the consent or authorisation of the holder of parental responsibility. The limits for our handling of your data are always determined by the purpose for which you have disclosed your data to us.

Personal data are used by CSP Advocates for internal purposes only. If you have provided us with personal data, we will use them only for the purpose for which they were provided such as the performance of a contract, sending information letters, replying to enquiries and the like. Your data may be disclosed to tax consultants and attorneys, who are bound to secrecy under their professional law, for accounting reasons, to render our fiscal obligations and to exercise and pursue our own rights. Sufficient care will also be taken with regard to them to ensure the highest possible level of security for your data and compliance with the requirements of the GDPR. Data will not be disclosed to third parties without your express consent unless CSP Advocates is obliged to do so by law or by virtue of official or court decision recognised by declaratory judgment. Data are not transferred to countries outside the European Union (so-called third countries). No more data than are required for the purpose of processing will be collected. Personal data stored will be erased immediately where a legitimate no longer exists, you have revoked your consent to storage or they are no longer required to serve the purpose for which they were stored. In any case, your contract data will be erased at the latest after expiry of the statutory retention and storage periods under commercial and tax law i.e. at the latest after expiry of 10 years.

You can freely revoke at any time your consent to the processing, utilisation, collection, storage or use of your personal data with future effect by unilateral declaration (Art. 7 (3) GDPR) by email to info@csp-legal.de. We draw your attention expressly to the fact that correspondence conducted by email can be viewed by third parties and is, therefore, less secure than correspondence conducted by telefax or letter. You do not need to state a reason for revocation. Furthermore, you have the right to request blocking and, if and to the extent that we do not have a legitimate interest in the retention of your data, erasure of your data (“right to be forgotten”) if the purpose of the original collection or processing of the data has ceased to exist, you have revoked consent given according to Art. 6 (1) GDPR and there is no other legal basis for the processing. A right to erasure also exists if you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the processing, the data have been unlawfully processed, the personal data have to be erased for compliance with an obligation in Union or Member State law or the data have been collected for information society services pursuant to Art. 8 (1) GDPR. Data for accounting and bookkeeping purposes are not affected by revocation or erasure. Should it become apparent to you that your data are incorrectly recorded at our company, you have the right to request rectification by us. We will likewise inform any recipients of your data of the rectification, erasure or restriction of the processing unless this is impossible or would involve a disproportionate effort.

Pursuant to Art. 21 (1) GDPR, you have the right to object to the use of cookies on our website. We must, however, point out that implementation of your objection is technically not possible without storage of your personal data or storage of a so-called “opt-out cookie”. To adhere to your request to use our website without cookies, we, therefore, recommend that you either make the changes in your browser described above to reject cookies or do not visit our website.

According to Art. 15 GDPR, you have the right of access to the data stored concerning yourself, the origin of the data and recipients as well as the purpose of storage at any time free of charge. Upon your written request, we will be pleased to inform you about the data stored at our company concerning yourself. You can do so simply by sending an email to: info@csp-legal.de. You will then receive the information in a commonly used and machine-readable format. Verbal information will not be provided. We must point out, however, that we can provide information only upon proof of your identity. You will then normally receive your information within one month. If necessary, due to the number of applications submitted or the complexity of the data, the period may be extended again by a further two months. In such case, however, you will receive notification, at the latest one month after submitting your application, concerning the extension of the period and the reasons for this. The same applies if you wish to exercise your right to data portability under Art. 20 GDPR. In this case too, you will receive information in a commonly used and machine-readable format. Where technically possible, we will also enable you to transmit all your data directly to another provider. In the event of obviously unfounded requests for information or in the case of excessive repeat applications, we reserve the right to require remuneration for providing information or to refuse to follow up the application.

Your right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority on data protection remains unaffected by the above statements. Contact data of the supervisory authority competent for us are as follows:
