In some situations, Kromann Reumert will use and record certain personal data about you. We may do so, for example, when you visit our website, when you sign up for one of our events, when your business becomes a client of ours, or in the performance of our legal advisory services.
In most situations Kromann Reumert will be the controller of those data. This will be the case, for example, where personal data are processed in our day-to-day business activities, legal work and advisory services to our clients. Accordingly, only in the context of very specific services, like debt recovery services or administration of whistleblower schemes, or if we use IT tools to prepare or store documents on our clients’ behalf (as in contract management services, for example) are we required to conclude a data processing agreement with our clients.
Below are some more details on when and how we may collect and use your personal data.
Website - Kromann Reumert will process personal data about you when you visit our website, www.kromannreumert.com
Client relations - Kromann Reumert will process personal data about you as part of cultivating or establishing of a client relationship
Legal advice and insolvency proceedings - Kromann Reumert will process personal data about you in the performance of our legal advisory services
Data processor - In the performance of our services Kromann Reumert will be processing personal data on behalf of our clients and is therefore, by definition, a data processor
Your rights as a data subject
As a data subject you have a number of rights available to you, which you may exercise by contacting Tina Brøgger Sørensen. You have the right to request information about what personal data about you we 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data about you, to request rectification or erasure of any personal data about you which you believe are incorrect, outdated, etc., and you can request a restriction of our processing of personal data about you.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. This means you have the right to receive, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, the personal data about you which has been sent to us, where the processing is carried out by automatic means and is based on consent or contract. You are also entitled, where technically feasible, to have your personal data transmitted to another controller.
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.
See the Danish Data Protection Agency’s guidance on the rights of data subjects for more about your rights here (in Danish).
Exceptions to Kromann Reumert’s duty of disclosure
As a data subject you are entitled to information about Kromann Reumert’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 to you if your personal data or the processing of them are to remain confidential.
Kromann Reumert may also decline disclosure to you 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.
Also, Kromann Reumert may decline disclosure to you 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 specific examples we can refer to entering into the EU-Commission's standard contractual clauses with the recipient of the personal data or, if the recipient is established in the U.S., by ensuring that the recipient in question is certified under the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield scheme.
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 a 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.
Security of processing at Kromann Reumert
We will also process your personal data in a manner that ensures the security and confidentiality of the data as required under the data protection laws in force from time to time, including by use of the required technical and organisational security measures. We have, among other things, procedures in place to ensure that only selected Kromann Reumert employees have access to your personal data and that your personal data are not kept longer than necessary.
To the extent allowed under applicable data protection laws, we may also use your personal data for statistical purposes so that we can continuously improve on our servicing of clients.
