Privacy statement

Privacy statement Van Bavel Advocaten B.V.

Van Bavel Advocaten respects your personal data and ensures that the personal information provided to or otherwise received by us is treated confidentially. Personal data regards all information concerning a person. Data indirectly referring to a person is also considered personal data. The following gives effect to the obligation arising from the GDPR to inform the party/parties whose personal data is processed by Van Bavel Advocaten.

Van Bavel Advocaten processes personal data to offer its services, to improve its services and to be able to communicate personally with you as involved party. Van Bavel Advocaten commonly contracts a third party for the evaluation of its services. As an involved party, you have the choice to participate in and fill out your personal data for this evaluation.

Van Bavel Advocaten processes the personal data below and exclusively for the objectives described below:
– To provide legal services, including the execution of an agreement and conducting (legal) proceedings;
– To collect claims;
– To advise, negotiate and refer;
– To meet our legal and statutory obligations;
– For marketing and communication activities;
– To recruit and select (application).

Van Bavel Advocaten processes different types of personal data as part of its services, because these either have been provided by you as involved party at your own initiative; were received as part of the service; have been made available to us by third parties, including the counterparties; or because these are available in public resources.

Van Bavel Advocaten processes the types of personal data listed above exclusively on the basis of the grounds below, as described in article 7 of the GDPR:
– Statutory obligation;
– Execution of an agreement;
– Obtained approval of the party/parties involved;
– Justified interest.

Van Bavel Advocaten only shares your personal data with third parties if necessary for the service, observing the objectives listed above. This may include an observation of practices by another solicitor, performing an inspection of expertise, or hiring another third party on behalf of and by order of Van Bavel Advocaten, such as an IT provider, as well as providing your personal data to the counterparty as part of (legal) procedures or correspondence. In addition, Van Bavel Advocaten may provide personal data to a third party, such as a supervisory body or another body with public authority, insofar a statutory obligation to this extent exists. A processor agreement is entered into with the third party that processes your personal data on behalf of and by order of Van Bavel Advocaten, which obligates the third party to also comply to the GDPR. Third parties contracted by Van Bavel Advocaten that offer services as processor carry individual responsibility complying to the GDPR for the (further) processing of your personal data. This may include an accountant, notary, contracted third party for a second opinion, or an expert report.

Van Bavel Advocaten highly values the security and protection of your personal data and, keeping in mind the state of technology, realizes fitting technological and organisational measures to ensure a security level in line with possible risks. In the event that Van Bavel Advocaten makes use of services offered by third parties, such as an IT provider, Van Bavel Advocaten will document agreements regarding sufficient security measures in a processor agreement as part of the protection of personal data.

Van Bavel Advocaten does not store processed personal data for longer than necessary for the objectives of data processing listed above or than is required by law and legislation.

A request for access, correction, limitation, objection, data portability, deletion of your personal data or revocation of previously provided permission can be sent using the contact details below. You will receive further notice from us within four weeks upon receipt of your request.
