Please read how I handle your personal data. This document includes important information about your rights. I may update this document from time to time.
Who works with your data?
The controller of your data is Mgr. Lukáš Pelcman, with registered office at Ostrovní 126/30, 110 00 Prague 1, Czech Republic (the Administrator or I). You can contact me at the registered office address or by email here.
Why do I work with your data, what personal data is involved and what authorises me to do so?
(1) Provision of legal services. I must handle your data in the course of arranging and providing legal services. This includes, in particular, activities under the regulations governing the practice of law. Such activities include, for example, defending and exercising your rights or communicating with you by email or telephone.
(2) Performance of legal obligations. I process your data in the performance of the Controller's legal obligations governed by tax and accounting laws or the Act on Certain Measures against the Legalization of Proceeds of Crime.The lawyer is an obliged person under Act No. 253/2008 Coll., on Certain Measures against the Legalization of Proceeds of Crime and Terrorist Financing, as amended, and under this Act is obliged to implement measures under this Act and other regulations, including but not limited to the identification and control of the client. For this purpose, it is obliged to collect and store the personal data of the client and to take copies of the documents from which it has verified such data.
(3) Protection of my legitimate interests. I may use your data and data about your use of my services to protect my rights. Such rights include, for example, the collection of outstanding debts.
(4) Sending you newsletters. From time to time, I may contact you with news about my services or relevant legal and business information. Such use is a legitimate interest of mine.
How long will I work with your data?
I will process your data for the duration of the provision of the services and thereafter for the period required by law, namely:
(1) For the duration of the provision of the services and for 10 years after the termination of our contractual relationship.
(2) For the period specified in the relevant legislation.
(3) For the duration of the provision of the services and for 10 years after the termination of our contractual relationship or unless the need to retain the data for a longer period arises in a justified case in connection with a specific case.
(4) Until you so refuse.
Who can I pass your data to?
I may transfer your data to my employees and other processors on the basis of a contract with them, but only to the extent necessary to fulfil the purposes of the processing and to provide our services. If I transfer the data outside the EU, it will be protected according to standard contractual clauses.
Data protection legislation guarantees you various data protection rights. To the extent that the data protection regulations guarantee you this - in particular GDPR - you can request access to your personal data from me (i.e. information about what specific data I am working with and how I am working with it), restriction of the processing of your data (i.e. that I will not delete the data yet, but I will not work with it) and its correction and deletion (always if the legal conditions for this are met). You can also object to processing and exercise your right to data portability. To exercise any of these rights, please contact me using the contact details above - the easiest way is to email email and I will be happy to help you exercise your rights. If you believe that I am breaking the law by processing your personal data, you can lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Authority.
Objections to processing
If you do not agree to me using your information to send you newsletters, you can opt-out. The easiest way to do this is to use the link that is in each such email, or you can send me an objection by email or letter, and if technically possible, when you register. If you refuse such processing, I will stop sending you such newsletters. You may also refuse other processing based on legitimate interest, which I will subsequently restrict unless I can demonstrate compelling and qualified legitimate grounds for the processing.
