We may also be obligated to perform certain inquiries to ensure that any given transaction is not related to money laundring or financing of terorism. We may be obligated to pass on information.
In some circumstances, AdvoNordic will process certain personal data about you. We may do so, for example, when your business becomes a client, or in the performance of our legal advisory services.
AdvoNordic will be the controller of those data.
When providing legal advice in areas such as general company and corporate law, mergers and acquisitions, transfer of real property, and tax law we may process personal data.
Data Processing and legal basis
Personal data that we may process includes the following (not exhaustive):
We will process these data in the performance of our legal advisory services
The legal basis is for our processing is our legal obligations and/or legitimate interests in the performance of our legal advisory services (see Article 6(1)(c) and (f) of the General Data Protection Regulation).
Generally, sensitive personal data will be processed only where such processing is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, see Article 9(2)(f) of the General Data Protection Regulation.
Information about criminal records will be processed only if held to be necessary for the pursuit of a legitimate interest which clearly overrides the interest of the data subject, see Section 8(3) of the Data Protection Act.
Processing may take place for the purpose of pursuing a legal claim, see Section 8(5) of the Data Protection Act, see Section 7(1) of said Act.
Civil registration (CPR) number will be processed where necessary for unique identification and where required by law, see Section 11(1)(i) of the Data Protection Act. AdvoNordic will process civil registration (CPR) numbers where necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, see Section 11(2)(iv) of the Data Protection Act, see Section 7(1) of said Act.
Personal data will be stored until the matter is closed and for an additional 10 years, except where special circumstances require a shorter or longer retention period.
AdvoNordic will not disclose your personal data to third parties, except where we are legally obliged to do so, e.g. in case of mandatory disclosure to your employer, your lawyer/representative, or to public authorities.
You have the right to request information about what personal data about you AdvoNordic are processing and to receive a copy of the data. You also have the right to object to our processing of personal data about you, to request rectification or erasure of any personal data about you which you believe are incorrect, outdated, etc., and you can request a restriction of our processing of personal data about you. For some of these rights, e.g. the right to erasure, exercising them requires satisfaction of certain concrete conditions set by data protection law.
Another right of yours as a data subject is the right to data portability - again, subject to fulfilment of concrete conditions set by data protection law.
There may be instances, though, where the rules allow for a restriction of your rights, e.g. where your rights are deemed to be overridden by essential private interests.
Where you have given consent to the processing of your personal data, you are free to withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of the processing which has already taken place on the basis of your consent.
If you choose to withdraw your consent, the processing of your personal data will cease and the data will be erased, unless there are objective grounds for their continued retention, e.g. for documentation purposes.
You may exercise your rights by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Exceptions to the information obligation
As a data subject you are entitled to information about AdvoNordic’s processing of your personal data. However, the rules of the Danish Administration of Justice Act and the Code of Conduct for the Danish Bar and Law Society impose on our lawyers a duty of non-disclosure, which may require us in certain cases to decline disclosure if the personal data or the processing of them are to remain confidential.
AdvoNordic may also decline disclosure to safeguard essential private interests, including your own, or to safeguard essential public interests, where such interests are found to override your interest in receiving the information. This exception will be relevant where disclosure would prejudice the interests of our clients, e.g. in connection with legal action and enforcement of civil law claims or criminal acts, control or supervisory functions, and similar situations.
Further, AdvoNordic may decline disclosure if you are in possession of the information already or if disclosing them to you is impossible or would involve a disproportionate effort or would impair the achievement of the objectives of the processing.
Transfer of personal data to countries outside the EU/EEA
Transfer of personal data to a country outside the EU/EEA (a third country) that is considered to provide an adequate level of protection does not require a specific authorization. Personal data can without further measures be transferred to such third countries.
Transfer to so-called "unsafe" third countries may be carried out based on a variety of appropriate safeguards that have been established to provide an adequate level of protection of the data subjects' rights. In terms of a specific example we can refer to entering into the EU-Commission's standard contractual clauses with the recipient of the personal data.
Where no appropriate safeguards are provided, transfer of personal data to "unsafe" third countries may take place based on specific legal basis for the transfer. The transfer can, for instance, take place based on consent, for the performance of a contract with a company established in such third country and if necessary in relation to legal claims. The specific legal bases are stated in article 49(1) of the General Data Protection Regulation.
You can obtain a copy of the relevant legal basis for the transfer or information about where it has been made available by contacting email@example.com.
If you have any questions about our processing of personal data, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Danish Data Protection Agency
If you have any grievances about the manner in which AdvoNordic processes your personal data, you can lodge a complaint with the Danish Data Protection Agency (website in Danish), the authority responsible for supervising data protection in Denmark.
