2. RIGHT RO REQUEST INFORMATION & ERASURE
As a client or generally as a data subject you shall have the right at any time to receive information about the personal data stored concerning you, the origin and recipients of such data and the purpose of the data processing, as well as the right to rectification, transmission of data, objection, restriction of processing, and the blocking of access to, or the erasure of, incorrect data or data processed without authorization, however, in all events subject to compliance with the attorney’s duty of confidentiality.
Please advise us of any changes regarding your personal data.
You shall have the right at any time to revoke any previously given consent to the use of your personal data. Any request for information, erasure, rectification, any request for a transmission of data that would not cause unreasonable expenditure, and/or any objection may be forwarded to Rechtsanwalts- und Steuerberatungskanzlei Dr Caroline Toifl (please find our address under part 8 of this Statement).
In the event you believe the processing of your personal data by us to be in violation of applicable data protection law or your rights under data protection law to have otherwise been infringed, you have the possibility to file a complaint with the competent regulatory agency.

Notwithstanding all efforts to consistently ensure an appropriately high level of care the possibility that information supplied by you via the internet may be accessed and used by third parties cannot be ruled out.
Please note, therefore, that we shall not accept any liability of whichever nature for any disclosure of information resulting from any error in the transmission of data not due to our fault and/or from any unauthorized access by third parties (e.g. hacking of e-mail accounts or telephones, interception of facsimile transmissions).
4. USE OF THE DATA
We shall not use the supplied data for any purposes other than those covered by the mandate or by your consent or otherwise by any provision in compliance with the Data Protection Regulation.
