DATA

How do we collect your data?

Your privacy is our priority, and this is why at DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES we process your personal data scrupulously, complying with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council, of April 27, 2016 (the “General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”) and of Spanish Law 34/2002, of July 11, on services of the information society and electronic commerce (the “LSSI“).

We collect and process your personal information, always with your knowledge and consent, each time you use our services, when you make inquiries through our contact form, or when you write to us or respond to any of our messages.

What type of personal data do we collect?

At DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES we collect two types of personal data, depending on whether these are data that you have provided to us (either mandatory information in order to use or contract our products and services, or additional information that you have voluntarily provided), or information that we automatically collect from your use of our website.

Information that you provide to us

  • Name and surname
  • Postal address
  • Phone number (landline and mobile)
  • Email address
  • National identity document or NIF or Passport information

Information that we automatically collect

  • Information on use: We collect information about your use of our website, such as the content or the sites you view.

  • Cookies: When you visit our website, we collect certain information automatically, including your IP address, the date, the time and the frequency with which you access the website and the way in which you browse through its content. We collect this data through the following types of cookies – either our own or from third parties: technical, personalization, and analytics. We use them so that you can browse our website correctly and access all content without problems, as well as to improve your user experience. For more information you can consult our Cookies Policy below.

If you are a provider, you must be aware that we use and store the personal data of people in your organization to manage the reception of the services you provide us as a provider. In addition, we also store your financial data to be able to pay you the corresponding amounts for the services provided. We believe that all these activities are necessary within the framework of our legitimate interests as a recipient of your services.

In any case, the personal data you provide to us must be true, accurate, complete and updated, and you are responsible for any damage or loss, -direct or indirect-, that may be caused as a result of a breach of this obligation. In the event that the data provided belong to a third party, you must previously inform them of the content of this clause and obtain their consent.

IF YOU ARE UNDER 14 YEARS OLD, YOU CANNOT SEND US YOUR PERSONAL DATA. ASK YOUR PARENTS TO HELP YOU READ THIS DOCUMENT AND TO CLARIFY ANY QUESTIONS YOU MAY HAVE.

If you are aged between 14 and 17 years old, before providing us with your personal information, you must have obtained the consent of your parents, your guardian or your legal representative so that your personal data can be processed automatically.

PURPOSE

For what purpose do we process your personal data?

At DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES we process the information you provide us with for different purposes based on the functionalities of which you make use. If you provide us with your information via the contact form enabled on our website, the purpose of the processing will be as indicated in the form itself.

If you provide us with your personal information via email or any other means, we will, in general, process your data according to the enquiry made. In compliance with the provisions of Law 34/2002, of July 11, on services of the information society and electronic commerce (the “LSSI”), we will not send you commercial communications without identifying them as such and without prior information to this regard. For these purposes, the information that we send to you is not considered as being commercial communication provided that its purpose is to maintain the contractual relationship or as the response to your request, as well as any information related to your request and that is derived directly from this relationship.

For all other scenarios, the purposes with which we can process your personal data, as the case may be, are those indicated below:

  • To manage the sending of requested information, respond to all your messages and queries, and send you the requested fee estimates (for this we require your name and surname, your email address and your mobile phone number);

  • To finalise the invoicing of the services we have provided (for this we require your name and surname, your national identity document or NIF or Passport details, your postal address and your email address);

  • To maintain a history of business relationships and communications we have with you (for this we require your name and surname, your postal address, your email address and your contact telephone number);

  • To maintain our records and comply with our administrative and tax obligations (for this we require your name and surname, your national identity document or NIF or passport information, your postal address, your email address, and, if applicable, your banking or IBAN information);

  • To send you commercial or promotional communications, electronically or via the post, about the services of DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES. We will only send you this type of communication if you have previously given us your express consent, which you can withdraw at any time, and in a very simple way, either by replying to the email you just received from us, or by writing a new email to lopd@domenechcorbella.com. We will never send you advertising of other companies outside DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES (for this purpose, we require your name and surname, your postal address, your email and your contact telephone number);

  • To analyse the use of our products and services and advertising, as well as make anonymous statistical reports regarding the access habits and the activity developed by users on our website (for this we need to know your browsing habits and the sections or announcements where you click);

  • To comply with the legally established obligations, such as, for example, the regulations on the prevention of money laundering (for this we require your name and surname, your national identity document or NIF, passport information, your mailing address and your email address);

How long will we store your data?

We will store your data as long as your relationship with DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES is active and, once the relationship has ceased, we will continue to store them —provided that said data remains relevant in relation to the purposes for which they were collected—, until you ask for their deletion. For example, if you have authorized us to send you advertising of our services, we will retain your data while your consent persists.

In any case, we will store your data for as long as it is necessary to comply with our legal obligations, especially during the legally required timeframes applicable. In this case, they will be processed for the sole purpose of proving compliance with our legal or contractual obligations. After said limitation periods have expired, your data will be deleted or, alternatively, anonymized.

LEGAL BASIS

What is the legal basis for the processing of your data?

In each specific processing of personal data collected about you, we will inform you if the communication of your personal data to DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES is a legal or contractual requirement, and if you are required to provide personal data, as well as the possible consequences of not doing so.

When we process your data in order to send you a fee estimate for our services, the legal basis of the processing is your consent.

When we process your data in order to issue invoices for the services provided or to maintain our accounting records, the legal basis of the processing is a legal obligation of an administrative and tax nature.

If you provide us with your data to communicate with us through our contact form, the legal basis for the data processing is your own consent.

In the same way, the processing of your data that we carry out to satisfy the purposes of responding to all your messages and inquiries (either by email, telephone or post), and analysing the use you make of our website to improve our products and services, is based on your consent.

The prospective offering of our services is based on the consent that we have previously requested from you and that you can withdraw at any time, and under no circumstance will the withdrawal of such consent condition the execution of any contract that we have in force.

And in general, when you provide us with your information in relation to managing a request you have entrusted us with, we understand that there is a legitimate interest for the processing, so that we can deal with your request correctly.

Are you obliged to provide the information we request?

When the legal basis that allows us to process your data is your own consent, as a rule you are not obliged to provide us with your personal data. However, keep in mind that we can only provide the services you request (for example, replying to your requests or sending you a requested fee estimate) if you provide us with the information that we deem necessary for such purposes, which are clearly identified on our forms because they are marked with an asterisk (*). If you do not provide us with this required information, it is likely that we will not be able to provide the requested services or they will be incomplete.

Your consent must be free, specific, informed and unequivocal, and you must grant it to us through positive and affirmative action, without any pressure and understanding what you are consenting to. Consequently, to meet these requirements clearly and unequivocally, by requesting your consent through the contact form included on our website, we will include a summary with basic information on data protection, a link to this Privacy Policy and a box that you must expressly check. We recommend that you read all this information before giving your consent to the processing. We will keep a record of all the consents you have given in this regard.

When the processing of your data is based on the performance of a contract, you must provide us the information we request in order to comply with our legal obligations (for example, to issue invoices with all information required by law).

Is it possible to withdraw your consent?

Of course. In those cases in which you have authorized us to process your personal information, you may withdraw your consent at any time by sending a communication to DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES specifically indicating what consent you wish to revoke. You can do so through the contact form on our website or by email to lopd@domenechcorbella.com. Please note that the withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal, nor the processing of data that we may carry out on other legal bases, such as a legitimate interest or the performance of a contract.

RECIPIENTS

Who will have access to your data?

We never share your personal data with third parties unrelated to DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES, unless it is necessary to provide you with the services you have requested. Consequently, the data that are sent to third parties will be used only to offer you our services. In each specific case, we will detail the categories of third parties that access your data.

When appropriate, and always in accordance with current legislation, we can exchange your personal data with the following categories of recipients:

  • With service providers that carry out specific functions for DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES. This category includes, for example, the accountants that carry our accounting and taxation activities, auditors, banks, or computer programmers responsible for web development, the hosting and the digital strategy of our online platforms. DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES has signed a data processing agreement with each of the external suppliers to whom we communicate personal data, so that they can only process these in accordance with our instructions, and strictly for those purposes that are necessary.

  • With judicial bodies, tax, auditing and other authorities, and in the event that by legal imperative we are obliged to share the data with them (for example, in the event of litigation or in response to a request from a tax authority);

Will your data be transferred to third countries?

Absolutely not. At DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES we will not transfer your data to third countries or international organizations.

RIGHTS

What are your rights when you provide us with your personal data?

You have the right to obtain confirmation about whether or not DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES is processing personal data that concerns you.

You have the right to access your personal data, as well as to request the rectification of inaccurate data or, where appropriate, request their erasure when, among other reasons, the data is no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected.

In certain circumstances, you may request the restriction of the processing of your data, in which case we will only keep them for the exercise or defence of claims, or to comply with our legal obligations.

In certain circumstances and for reasons related to your particular situation, you can object to the processing of your data. DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES will stop processing the data, except for compelling legitimate grounds, due to legal obligation or for the exercise or defence of possible claims.

In the event that you have given consent for a specific purpose, such as, for example, authorizing us to send you advertising about our services, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time, without this affecting the legality of the processing based on the consent prior to its withdrawal.

Likewise, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority, especially when you are not satisfied with the exercising of your rights.

We have forms at your disposal so that you can exercise all the previously mentioned rights. Next, we will detail a little more about what these rights are and how you can exercise them.

Right of access: what is it and how can you exercise it?

The right of access means that you can ask us, at any time, for confirmation of whether or not personal data that concern you are being processed, and in this case, we are required to communicate the following information:

  • what the data are;

  • what purposes we are processing them for;

  • possible communications, assignments or transfers of your data to third parties;

  • the period for which the personal data will be stored;

  • the existence of your right to request the rectification or erasure of your personal data or the restriction of their processing, or to object to such processing;

  • right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory control authority;

  • in the event that we had not obtained personal data through you, any information available about their origin;

  • the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and significant information on the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences that such processing has for you.

You can exercise this right and, therefore, request all the information listed above, in the following way:

  • By email: Request the form to exercise your right of access. Complete it and send it to our email address at lopd@domenechcorbella.com. You will also need to attach a copy of your national identity document or passport information.

You will receive our response within a maximum period of one month. If you do not state otherwise, we will send you a copy of your personal information by electronic means, in a document attached to the email in which we respond to your request. If you prefer, you can ask us to send you a copy by post, either in a printed document or on a CD.

We will not charge you anything for providing you with a copy of your personal information, unless the request is manifestly unfounded or excessive. If you request another copy of this information or repeatedly send us access requests, we may charge you reasonable administrative costs or even deny your further requests, provided that the law authorizes us to do so, and in any case, we will inform you of the reasons for the denial with maximum transparency.

Right to rectification: what is it and how can you exercise it?

You have the right to request, within a maximum period of one month from the time we receive your request, the correction of inaccurate or incomplete personal data that concern you, for example in the case of errors, typos and spelling mistakes, changes in the data collected, etc. In the event that we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will ask them to rectify these details with those you have provided, unless it is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort. When applicable, we will also inform you of the third parties we have provided your inaccurate or incomplete personal information to.

You can exercise this right and, therefore, ask us to rectify your personal data, in the following way:

  • By email: Ask us for the form to exercise the right to rectification. Complete it and send it to our email address at lopd@domenechcorbella.com. You will also need to attach a copy of your national identity document or passport information.

Right to erasure: what is it and how can you exercise it?

This right is also known as the “right to be forgotten”. In certain circumstances, you have the right to request that we permanently erase your personal data when, for example, these are no longer relevant or necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed, when you withdraw the consent the processing of your data is based on (unless there is another legal basis for the processing of your data), when you have objected to the processing of your data and there are no other legitimate grounds that prevail for this processing, etc.

In the event that we have provided your personal data to third parties, and we were obliged, by virtue of the provisions of the previous paragraph, to delete such data, we will do everything possible to take reasonable measures to inform those controllers who process your personal data of your request to erase any links to, or any copies or replications of those personal data.

You can exercise this right and, therefore, ask us to erase your personal data, in the following way:

  • By email: Ask us for the form to exercise the right to erasure. Complete it and send it to our email address at lopd@domenechcorbella.com. You will also need to attach a copy of your national identity document or passport information.

You will receive a response within a maximum period of one month from when we receive your request.

Right to object to processing of personal data: what is it and how can you exercise it?

The right to object is that which entitles you, at any time, to object, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your personal data based on the satisfaction of our legitimate interests, including profiling, or when we were processing these for compliance of an activity carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of public powers that would have been conferred on us. In these cases, we are obliged to respond to your request to object and stop processing your personal data, unless we accredit compelling legitimate grounds for this processing that override the interests, rights and freedoms that you have adduced, or for the formulation, the exercise or the defence of claims.

In the event that we are processing your data for direct marketing purposes, we are obliged to respond to your request to object and stop processing your personal data immediately.

If your personal data were processed for scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes, you will also be entitled, for reasons related to your particular situation, to oppose the processing of such data, unless it is necessary for the fulfilment of a mission performed for reasons of public interest.

You can exercise this right and, therefore, ask us to cease the processing of your personal data, in the following ways:

  • Through the “unsubscribe” link in commercial communications: In the event that your request to object refers to the sending of our newsletters, you can exercise your right very easily and quickly by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link that we include in our newsletters. By clicking on this link, we will immediately stop processing your personal data for advertising purposes.

  • By email: Request the form to exercise the right to object. Complete it and send it to our email address at lopd@domenechcorbella.com. You will also need to attach a copy of your national identity document or passport information.

In the first case, your request will be answered immediately. With regard to the second case, you will receive a response to your request to object within a maximum period of one month after we receive your request.

Right to data portability: what is it and how can you exercise it?

The right to data portability is an advanced form of access right and means that you can ask us to send you a copy with your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format (for example, on a data CD). It is a right that you can exercise in three situations:

  • When the data processing is carried out by automated means (that is, without human intervention).

  • When the data processing is based on your prior consent or on a contract.

  • When you request it with respect to the data that you have provided to us and that concerns you, including the data derived from your own activity.

This right is not applicable, for example, to the data of third parties that you may have given us, or to the data that concerns you but that would have been provided by a third party and not by yourself.

The right to portability also implies that you can ask us to send your personal information to another controller on your behalf, without having to send it to you in advance, provided this is technically possible.

You can exercise this right and, therefore, ask us to send you a structured copy of your personal data (for example, in CD format), in the following way:

  • By email: Request the form to exercise the data portability right. Complete it and send it to our email address at lopd@domenechcorbella.com. You will also need to attach a copy of your national identity document or passport information.

You will receive a response within a maximum period of one month from when we receive your request.

Right to restrict the processing of your data: what is it and how can you exercise it

The right to restrict the processing of your data means that, at your request, we will not apply any of the processing operations that would correspond to each case to any of your data. In other words, we will only be able to store this data but we will not be able to carry out any other processing activities unless it meets any of the specific circumstances that will be mentioned further on.

You can request the restriction of the processing of your data in the following cases:

  • When you have exercised the rights to rectification or to object, while we are looking at whether or not your request is valid, that is, while we verify the accuracy of your data or our legitimate grounds to process them.

  • When the processing is unlawful (that is, contrary to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation), which would result in the erasure of your data, but you prefer that we restrict the data processing instead of deleting them completely.

  • When we no longer need to process your personal data —which would also determine the need to erase them— but you prefer to request a restriction instead of erasure because you need them for the formulation, exercise or defence of legal claims.

When the processing of your personal data has been restricted, we can only process them (except for their storage) with your prior consent or for the formulation, exercise or defence of legal claims, or with a view to protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or for reasons of important public interest to the EU or of a certain Member State. Of course, if you have imposed a restriction on the processing of your data, we are obliged to inform you before the lifting of said restriction.

If we have shared your personal data with third parties, we will notify them of the restriction of the processing you have requested, unless it is impossible or involves a disproportionate effort to do so.

You can exercise this right and, therefore, ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data, in the following way:

  • By email: Ask us for the form to exercise the right to restriction of processing. Complete it and send it to our email address at lopd@domenechcorbella.com. You will also need to attach a copy of your national identity document or passport information.

You will receive a response within a maximum period of one month from the date we receive your request.

Right to withdraw the consent given: what is it and how can you exercise it?

In the same way that you have given us your consent to process certain personal data (for example, for marketing purposes), you can withdraw this consent at any time and leave it without effect, if you consider it appropriate. In this way, we will stop performing the specific activity for which you gave us your consent initially, unless there are grounds that justify the continuity of the processing of your data for these purposes, which, of course, we would communicate to you in a reasoned way.

Every time we ask for your consent, for example to authorize us to send you commercial communications about our services, we will inform you of your right to withdraw consent at any time and in a simple way. It will be as easy to withdraw consent as it is to give it to us.

In any case, the withdrawal of consent will not affect the legality of the processing based on the consent prior to its withdrawal.

You can exercise this right and, therefore, withdraw the consent you have previously given us for the processing of your personal data, in the following ways:

  • Through the “unsubscribe” link included in each commercial communication that you receive electronically: in all our commercial communications, advertising emails or newsletters, we include a link to unsubscribe, which is equivalent to offering you the possibility of withdrawing your consent and to stop receiving advertising for our products and services.

  • By email: Ask us for the form to exercise the right to withdraw consent. Complete it and send it to our email address at lopd@domenechcorbella.com. You will also need to attach a copy of your national identity document or passport information.

If you want to do it in a quick and easy way, without having to download or fill out any form, simply send us an email, from the email address you used to contact us previously and identifying yourself properly, outlining your request to withdraw consent, as well as those specific purposes of processing for which you wish to withdraw it (for example, for the sending of commercial communications).

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: what is it and how can you exercise it?

At DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES we make every effort to protect your privacy. If you think we are not doing enough, or you have any complaint about how we process your personal data, we encourage you to contact us via email, by phone or through the contact form on the website.

However, if you consider that your rights have been violated and that the processing of your personal data by DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES infringes the General Data Protection Regulation, you have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority in your country, without prejudice to any other administrative appeal or legal action that you may file.

In Spain, you can exercise this right by contacting the following authority:

Name:                     Agencia Española de Protección de Datos

Postal address:       C/ Jorge Juan, 6. 28001, Madrid (España)

Phone(s):                +34 901 100 099 /+34 912 663 517

Website:                  www.agpd.es

If you reside outside Spain, you can also contact the competent data protection authority in your country.

SECURITY MEASURES

How do we protect your personal data?

At DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES we take the security and confidentiality of your personal data very seriously, and for this reason, we are committed to adopting all the security measures necessary to guarantee the integrity of the personal information you provide to us, to allow recovery where there has been an incident, and avoid any misuse, loss or unauthorized access.

The security measures may vary depending on the characteristics of the processing, the type of data processed or the technology available at any given time. We apply appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of security appropriate to the risk, taking into account the risks arising from the processing as a result of the destruction, loss or accidental or unlawful alteration of personal data transmitted, preserved or otherwise processed, or unauthorized communication or access to said data.

We permanently endeavour to guarantee the confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience of our data processing systems and services. Likewise, we regularly verify and evaluate the effectiveness of the technical and organizational measures that we have implemented to guarantee the safety of the processing.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, technical security in a medium such as the Internet is not impregnable and there may be fraudulent actions by third parties, although DOMÈNECH CORBELLA – LEGAL SERVICES does everything in its power to avoid these.

If you suspect that there may have been improper use of your personal data or an unauthorized access to them, please let us know immediately so we can take action in this regard. You can write to our email address at lopd@domenechcorbella.com, call us on +34606199889 or send us a WhatsApp message to the same phone number.

Most websites use cookies and these do not allow you to be identified, nor are they harmful to your computer or mobile device. In fact, cookies facilitate the use and navigation of a web page and are essential for the proper functioning of the internet, thanks to the innumerable advantages that they provide in the provision of interactive services, such as when they are used to manage your user session (reducing the number of times you have to include your password), to improve the services offered, or to adapt the content of a website to your preferences.

  • Third party cookies: These are sent to the user’s computer from a computer or domain different from the one being accessed.

Depending on the length of time that cookies remain active on the user’s terminal equipment, we can differentiate between the following types of cookies:

  • Session cookies: These are a type of cookie designed to collect and store data while the user is accessing a website, and are automatically deleted when the browser is closed.

  • Persistent cookies: These are a type of cookie that stores data on the terminal and can be accessed and processed during a period defined by the person responsible for the cookie, which can range from a few minutes to several years.

According to their purpose, we can classify cookies into the following categories:

  • Technical cookies: These are those that allow the user to navigate across a website, platform or application, as well as across the different options or services that the website contains, such as, for example, traffic control and data communication, identifying the session, access to restricted areas, remembering those elements that made up an order, finalising the purchasing process for an order, carrying out the application for registration or participation at an event, using security features during browsing, storing content for the dissemination of videos or sound or sharing content across social networks.

  • Personalized cookies: These are those that allow the user to access the service with some predefined general characteristics based on a series of criteria on the user’s terminal, such as, for example, language, the type of browser through which the user accesses the service, the regional settings that the service is accessed from, etc.

  • Analysis cookies: These are the cookies that allow those responsible for them to monitor and analyse the behaviour of users across the websites to which they are linked. The information collected through these types of cookies is used in the measurement of the activity of the websites, applications or platforms and for the elaboration of user’s browsing profiles of said websites, applications and platforms, in order to improve the services on offer based on an analysis of the usage data.

  • Advertising Cookies: These are the cookies that allow the management, in the most efficient way possible, of the advertising spaces that, if applicable, the publisher has included within the website, application or platform from which it renders the service requested, according to criteria such as the content edited or the frequency at which the ads are displayed.

  • Behavioural advertising cookies: These are the cookies that allow the management, in the most efficient possible way, of the advertising spaces that, if applicable, the publisher has included across the website, application or platform from which the service requested is provided. These cookies store information about the behaviours of the users obtained through ongoing observation of their browsing habits, which allows the development of specific profiles to feature personalized advertising.

  • External social network cookies: These cookies are used to allow users of a website to interact with the content of different social networking platforms (for example Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, etc.), and which are generated only for the users of said social networks.
