Personal data is according to the GDPR (General Data Potection Regulation) any piece of information that redirects to a particular person. General personal data is for example someone’s name, sex, address and age. Specific personal data relates for instance to race, political party, medical conditions, and so on, and needs special protection.
Legal Future collects general personal data from clients through various means. For example, when customers fill in the contact form, they are asked to leave their name and e-mail address. This makes it possible for Legal Future to reply to the mail and address a particular person with his name.
When a customer decides to purchase services from Legal Future, they are asked for additional data, which includes but is not limited to:
Name of the company, contact details of company’s representative, Chamber of commerce number, financial information (for billing purposes), address of the company and information on any business activities (to the extent necessary to draft documents and provide legal advice).
In the event that internal (classified) company documents are required for Legal Future in order to provide legal advice or deal with a dispute, Legal Future treats them with the utmost confidentiality and will return them to the client after the agreement has come to an end. This clause is also included in Legal Future’s general terms and conditions.
