Data Protection Policy Notaries Neuer Wall 43

As notaries, we are obliged to maintain secrecy and to treat our clients' data confidentially. We take the protection of your personal data seriously. In this data protection declaration, we would like to inform you in detail about which data we collect, process and use for which purposes. This privacy policy implements the requirements of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation, hereinafter "GDPR").

1. Who is responsible for your data?

We, the notaries Dr Malte Ivo, Dr Jens-Olaf Lenschow and Dr Jan-Thomas Oskierski, are responsible for the lawful collection, processing and use of your data. You can reach us using the contact details available on this website.

2. What data do we collect and for what purposes?

We collect, store and process your data within the scope of a client relationship for the fulfilment of your notarisation or support mandate. In these cases, the processing of your data is necessary for the fulfilment of notarial tasks. We also process personal data outside of client relationships in order to fulfil our duties, for example when inspecting public and official registers or in the context of correspondence with authorities and other third parties. The fulfilment of our notarial tasks is in the public interest and is carried out in the exercise of official authority that has been transferred to us as notaries. The legal basis for the collection and processing of personal data in this respect is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e) of the GDPR.

Insofar as we are active outside the scope of our public-law duties, for example in the purchase of goods, the procurement of services or other participation in commercial transactions, we collect data on the basis of the following legal principles:

  • The data subject has given their consent to the processing of their personal data for one or more specific purposes (Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR);

  • processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or in order to take steps at the request of the data subject prior to entering into a contract (Art. 6 (1) (b) GDPR);

  • processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the controller is subject (Article 6(1)(c) of the GDPR);

  • processing is necessary in order to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person (Art. 6 (1) (d) GDPR);

  • processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller or by a third party, except where such interests are overridden by the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal data, in particular where the data subject is a child (Article 6(1)(f) GDPR).

3. When do we pass on data to third parties?

We will only pass on your data to third parties without your express consent if we are obliged to do so by law or an official or court order. Such obligations exist in the case of official notarial business in cases precisely defined by law, for example vis-à-vis tax offices, youth welfare offices, registry offices, probate courts, family courts and other courts and authorities.

4 Where is your data stored?

Your personal data is processed exclusively in data centres in Germany.

5. How long will your data be stored?

Personal data will be deleted when it is no longer required for the purposes described in this declaration, unless statutory provisions prescribe a longer storage period.

6. What rights do you have with regard to the processing of my data?

All persons affected by the use of data by us have a right to information about the personal data stored by us and, if the respective legal requirements are met, a right to rectification, erasure or restriction of processing.

All data subjects also have the right to receive the personal data concerning them in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. This includes the right to transmit this data to another controller. Where technically feasible, you and the other data subjects may also request that we transmit the personal data directly to the other controller from the aforementioned point in time.

In order to exercise the rights mentioned in this section and in the event of questions and complaints regarding the use of your personal data, the persons concerned can contact our data protection officer. You can reach him via the e-mail address or via the general contact details of our office given on this website.

You can also contact the responsible supervisory authority with complaints about the use of data by us:
