When you call up our website, i.e. when you use the website for informational purposes only, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise provide us with information, the browser used on your terminal device automatically sends information to the server of our website.

- Time zone difference to Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
- Content of the request (concrete page)
- Access status/HTTP status code
- Amount of data transferred in each case
- Website from which the request comes
- Browser
- Operating system and its interface
- Language and version of the browser software.
We process the above data for the following purposes: Ensuring a smooth connection of the website, ensuring a comfortable use of our website, evaluation of system security and stability as well as for other administrative purposes.
The legal basis for the data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest follows from the above listed purposes for data collection. Under no circumstances will we use the data collected for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.

Use of cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or similar) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your terminal device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.
Information is stored in the cookie that is related to the specific terminal device used. This does not mean, however, that we obtain direct knowledge of your identity.
Cookies are only used on our site for the purpose of anonymous usage analysis (see also below about tracking tools). Their use serves to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you.
Cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
The data processed by cookies is required for the above-mentioned purposes to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and refuse to accept cookies. Please note that you may not be able to use all the functions of this website.

Contact form

If you have any questions of any kind, we offer you the opportunity to contact us using a form provided on the website. It is necessary to provide a valid e-mail address so that we know who the enquiry comes from and can answer it. Further information can be provided voluntarily.
The data processing for the purpose of contacting us is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 a DSGVO on the basis of the voluntarily given consent.
The personal data collected by us for the use of the contact form will be automatically deleted after the completion of your request.

Newsletter

With your consent you can subscribe to our newsletter, with which we inform you about our current interesting offers. The advertised goods and/or services are named in the declaration of consent.
For the registration to our newsletter we use the so-called double-opt-in procedure. This means that after your registration we will send you an e-mail to the e-mail address you have provided, in which we ask you to confirm that you wish to receive the newsletter. If you do not confirm your registration within a certain period, your information will be blocked and automatically deleted after one month. In addition, we store the IP addresses used and the time of registration and confirmation. The purpose of this procedure is to be able to prove your registration and, if necessary, to clarify possible misuse of your personal data.
Your e-mail address is the only mandatory information for sending the newsletter. After your confirmation, we store your e-mail address for the purpose of sending the newsletter.
You can revoke your consent to the sending of the newsletter at any time. You can revoke your consent by clicking on the link provided in each newsletter e-mail, by sending an e-mail to support@lawlift.de or by sending a message to the contact data provided in the imprint.
We would like to point out that we evaluate your user behaviour when sending the newsletter. For this evaluation, the e-mails sent contain so-called web beacons or tracking pixels, which are one-pixel image files stored on our website. For the evaluation we link the data mentioned in paragraph 1 and the web beacons with your e-mail address and an individual ID. Links received in the newsletter also contain this ID. The data is only collected pseudonymously, the IDs are therefore not linked to your other personal data, and a direct personal reference is excluded.
You can object to this tracking at any time by clicking on the separate link provided in each e-mail or by informing us via another contact channel. The information is stored as long as you have subscribed to the newsletter. After a cancellation we store the data purely statistically and anonymously. Such tracking is also not possible if you deactivate the display of images in your e-mail program by default. In this case the newsletter will not be displayed completely and you may not be able to use all functions. If the images are displayed manually, the above-mentioned tracking will take place.
The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 a DSGVO, provided you have given your express consent.

Transfer to third parties

Personal data will not be transferred to third parties for purposes other than those listed below.
We only pass on your personal data to third parties if:
- you have given your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. a DSGVO

- in the event that there is a legal obligation to pass on the data pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. c DSGVO, and
