Personal Data

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person within the meaning of the European General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR“). Personal data that we process may include:

  • Basic information (e.g. first and/or last name, prefix, title);
  • Contact details (e.g. e-mail address, postal address and phone number);
  • Data related to the device you use to visit our website (e.g. your IP address);
  • Data related to your visit to our website;
  • Personal data you provide us for the purpose of attending seminars or client events;
  • Personal data you may provide us as a job applicant (e.g. name, date of birth, address, phone number, nationality, marital status, et cetera).
  • Any other personal data relating to you which you may provide us or that we may obtain in relation to the purposes and based on grounds set out below.

We collect abovementioned personal data because you provided this data to us. This can happen in various ways, such as by providing data when entering into an agreement with us, by entering your data on our website, by giving us your business card or by applying for a job. We may also collect your personal data from other sources, such as counterparties, the Trade Register of the Chamber of Commerce, the Land Registry or by using publicly available sources.

Our website contains hyperlinks to websites of other parties and social media buttons. CLINT is not responsible for the content of those websites or the services of these social media platforms. Nor is CLINT responsible for the privacy policy and/or the use of cookies on those websites and social media platforms.

Purposes for data processing

As data controller within the meaning of the GDPR we process personal data. We may process your personal data for the following purposes:

  • To provide our legal services;
  • To comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;
  • For marketing and business development activities, such as news updates, invitations for our events and other marketing communications that may be of interest to you;
  • To handle your job application or subscription to any of our recruitment services and events;
  • To generate statistics regarding the use of the website and/or to analyse and improve the website.

Legal grounds for data processing

We will process your personal data using one or more of the following legal grounds of the GDPR:

  • Performance of a contract (e.g. the performance of an assignment agreement on the basis of which we provide you with legal assistance);
  • Compliance with a legal obligation (e.g. the verification of your identity in order to comply with the Dutch Act on Prevention of Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism);
  • Legitimate interest (in order to invite you for our seminars and client events);
  • Your consent.

Sharing with others

We may share your personal data with any company liaised with CLINT, including but not limited to Littler and Littler Global, for the purposes described in this Privacy Statement.

In some cases we may also share your personal data with third parties. This may include, but is not limited to:

  • Third parties relevant to the legal services that we provide, such as counterparties, local counsel, courts, regulatory authorities and governmental institutions;
  • Third parties that we engage with, such as supervisory authorities and other bodies, in order to comply with legal obligations;
  • Third party suppliers in connection with the processing of your personal data for the purposes described in this Privacy Statement, such as IT providers, communication service providers or other suppliers to whom we outsource certain support services.

We will only transfer your personal data to the above mentioned third parties for the purposes and on the legal grounds stated in this Privacy Statement.

Third parties to whom we transfer your personal data are themselves responsible for compliance with privacy legislation. We are neither responsible nor liable for the processing of your personal data by these third parties. To the extent that a third party processes your personal data as a data processor of CLINT within the meaning of the GDPR, CLINT will conclude a processor agreement with such party that meets the requirements set out in the GDPR.

To be able to provide our services, it may be necessary for us to transfer your personal data to a recipient in a country outside of the European Economic Area. In that case, CLINT will ensure that the data transfer is compliant with the applicable law.

Retention period

In line with the GDPR we will not store your personal data any longer than is necessary to achieve the purposes stated in this Privacy Statement or to comply with the relevant laws and regulations.

Security

We have taken technical and organisational measures to ensure an appropriate level of security to protect your personal data from unauthorised and/or unlawful processing and from loss, destruction, damage, alteration or disclosure. If you have any questions regarding the security of your personal data, or if there are indications of misuse, please contact info@clintlegal.com.

  • The right to rectification or correction of your personal data in case that the data is inaccurate or incomplete;
