You can reach the data protection officer of ALPMANN FRÖHLICH as follows:


II. Description and scope of the collection/processing of personal data:

ALPMANN FRÖHLICH collects and processes personal data of the clients and, if applicable, of their legal representatives, authorized representatives, agents and employees during the client relationship. The data is collected from the client directly and from third parties. In particular, personal data of the following categories are collected:

  • Salutation, first name, last name;
  • date of birth;
  • Email address;
  • Address;
  • Telephone number (landline and/or mobile);
  • Extracts from publicly accessible registers (commercial register, register of associations);
  • Land register excerpts;
  • Transparency register;
  • BZR excerpts;
  • Other information necessary for consultation, assertion and defense of the client's rights

III. Purposes of data processing/legitimate interests:

ALPMANN FRÖHLICH collects this data for the following purposes:

  • for the identification of the client;
  • to provide legal advice and representation to the client;
  • for correspondence with the client;
  • for invoicing purposes;
  • for the settlement of any liability claims that may exist;
  • to carry out collision checks in accordance with § 43a Para. 4 BRAO;
  • to assert any claims against the client;

IV. Legal bases of data processing:

Insofar as ALPMANN FRÖHLICH obtains the consent of the data subject for processing operations involving personal data, Art. 6 (1) lit. a EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data.

When processing personal data that is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the client is a party, Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis. This also applies to processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures.

Insofar as processing of personal data is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which ALPMANN FRÖHLICH is subject, Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR serves as the legal basis.

In the event that vital interests of the client or another natural person make processing of personal data necessary, Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR serves as the legal basis.

If the processing is necessary to protect a legitimate interest of ALPMANN FRÖHLICH or a third party and if the interests, fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject do not override the former interest, Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR serves as the legal basis for the processing.

V. Duration of processing:

The personal data processed by ALPMANN FRÖHLICH for the purpose of the mandate shall be stored until the expiry of the statutory retention obligation for lawyers (6 years after the end of the calendar year in which the mandate was terminated) and thereafter deleted, unless ALPMANN FRÖHLICH is obliged to store such data for a longer period pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. c GDPR, ALPMANN FRÖHLICH is obligated to store the data for a longer period of time due to tax, commercial or professional obligations, or the client has consented to further storage pursuant to Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a GDPR.

VI. Disclosure of data to third parties:

The client's personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.

Insofar as this is necessary for the processing of the client relationship in accordance with Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b GDPR, the client's personal data will be passed on to third parties. This includes in particular the disclosure to opposing parties and their representatives (in particular their lawyers) as well as courts and other public authorities for the purpose of correspondence as well as the assertion and defense of the client's rights. The data disclosed may be used by the third party exclusively for the purposes stated.

The attorney-client privilege shall remain unaffected. Insofar as data subject to attorney-client privilege is involved, it shall only be disclosed to third parties in consultation with the client.

VII. Data subject rights:

The client has the right:

  • in accordance with Art. 7 (3) GDPR to revoke the consent once given to the notaries at any time. This has the consequence that the notaries may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent for the future. The revocation has no influence on the lawfulness of the data processing until the time of the revocation.

Furthermore, revocation of consent may mean that further notarial processing and advice by the notaries cannot take place and the client relationship must be terminated.

  • in accordance with Art. 15 GDPR to request information about the personal data processed by the notaries. In particular, the client may request information about the processing purposes, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom the data of the client have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of their data, if not collected by the notaries, as well as the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details;

  • in accordance with Art. 16 GDPR to demand without delay the correction of incorrect or completion of the personal data stored by the notaries;

  • pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR to request the erasure of personal data stored by the notaries, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims;

  • to request the restriction of the processing of the personal data in accordance with Art. 18 GDPR, insofar as the correctness of the data is disputed by the client,

or the processing is unlawful but erasure is refused

or the notaries no longer need the data, but the client needs the data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims

or you have objected to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR;

  • pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, to receive the personal data that the client has provided to the notaries in a structured, common and machine-readable format or to request the transfer to another controller, and

  • complain to a supervisory authority in accordance with Art. 77 GDPR. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence or workplace or the respective official seat of the notaries.

VIII. Right of objection:

Insofar as the client's personal data are processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, the client has the right to object to the processing of the personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, insofar as there are grounds for doing so that arise from the client's particular situation.

If the client wishes to exercise his right to object, an e-mail to:
