Advocatur Seeger, Frick & Partner AG, domiciled at Landstrasse 81, LI-9494 Schaan (hereinafter "the Enterprise") processes information and personal data that relate to you (hereinafter "Data Subject"). Generally, the Enterprise processes such information in the context of business relationships that already exist or are being initiated, including the use of this website. The Enterprise endeavours to protect your personal data in the best possible way.
The Controller as defined in the EU General Data Protection Regulation GDPR (hereinafter "GDPR") is Advocatur Seeger, Frick & Partner AG, Landstrasse 81, LI-9494 Schaan. The Enterprise has appointed a data protection officer (see item 8).
This privacy statement (hereinafter "Statement") applies to the Enterprise. It describes the processing of personal data in connection with the rendering of services by the Enterprise and its internet presence. This Statement is based on the GDPR, the Liechtenstein Datenschutzgesetz (Data Protection Act) and the relevant rules of special laws.
The Enterprise reserves the right to adjust the Statement as required. Where such adjustments have been made, you should verify whether you consent to the adjustments.
2 Personal data
Personal data is all information by which an individual can be identified directly or indirectly. This includes for example the name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, date of birth, age, gender, tax identification number. This also includes sensitive data (a data category that enjoys particularly strict protection), such as health data or data in connection with criminal proceedings.
The Enterprise collects, processes, and uses your personal data only in accordance with the rules laid down in Art. 5 and 6 GDPR (contract, legal obligation, legitimate interest, approval by Data Subject).
Only such personal data is collected as is necessary for carrying out and handling our services or as has been provided by you voluntarily.
3 Use of personal data
The Enterprise is subject to professional duties of confidentiality and secrecy based on data protection legislation, contractual law, or professional secrecy. The Enterprise is bound by these duties in the processing of personal data. The personal data is processed (i) for the performance of contracts, (ii) for compliance with our legal or regulatory obligations, (iii) to pursue our legitimate interests, and (iv) to carry out duties in the public interest (e.g. to prevent or investigate criminal offences).
When using the Enterprise's website, access data (e.g. log files, IP address, date and time of access, name of accessed file, access status, top-level domain, web browser used, operating system used) is saved. The Enterprises use this data for statistical purpose as well as for technical evaluation, for optimising server infrastructure, to determine frequency of use, and finally, to draw conclusions for improving user-friendliness and functionality.
The websites may be connected with the websites of other operators or with contents on the websites of other operators by way of links. The Enterprise has no influence on the websites of other operators (hereinafter "Third-Party Websites") and can therefore not accept any liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, up-to-dateness, or legality of the contents of Third-Party Websites nor for their data processing practice. Therefore, please also note the privacy statements of the Third-Party Website in question.
The transfer of data may show security gaps. Therefore, the absolute protection of data (e.g. against access by third parties) cannot be guaranteed.
4 Transfer of personal data to third parties
Normally, the personal data collected in the course of the Enterprise's business activities is not forwarded to any third parties.
However, it is possible that your data is forwarded to third parties for the fulfilment of business instructions as a result of operational requirements or legal provisions. Any forwarding of your data will happen in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR.
The Enterprises will transfer your personal data only to such countries as have been certified by the EU Commission to possess an adequate level of data protection. Where the Enterprises transfer your personal data to countries that have not been certified to have an adequate level of data protection, the Enterprises will take measures to ensure the protection of your data by contracting with recipients in such states at standard contractual clauses (2010/87/EC and/or 2004/915/EC).
5 Protection of personal data
The Enterprises take suitable technical and organisational measures with regard to the processing and storage of data as well as with regard to their internet presence to protect all data against loss, unauthorised access, or abuse.
Regardless of the measures taken to protect your data, you need to be aware that the transfer of data through the internet – this applies to both websites and e-mail services – happens without control and across borders. Even if sender and recipient are located in the same country, data may cross borders in transfer. The Enterprises therefore cannot guarantee the confidential treatment of any data that is transferred through the internet. Wherever you disclose personal data on the internet, you need to be aware of the fact that third parties may be able to access, read, modify, falsify, monitor, destroy, or abuse such data. Moreover, the transfer of data may be delayed. It is also possible for the data to be lost in transfer. Furthermore, third parties may be able to draw conclusions on existing business relationships. Therefore, the Enterprises cannot accept any responsibility for the security of your data during its transfer through the internet and must decline any liability for direct and indirect damage.
6 Storage of personal data
The Enterprise's systems necessary for data processing are located in Liechtenstein. The data sent by you will be retained for at least six months and will remain stored as long as this is operationally necessary or required by law.
