Who processes the data?

JUDr. Štěpán Kratěna, Ph.D., attorney, ID No: 69335176 (hereinafter the “Attorney”), registered office: Lazarská 1719/5, 110 00 Prague 1 (other contact details provided earlier).


Agreement on providing legal services (hereinafter the “Agreement”) concluded between the Attorney and the client – data subject (hereinafter the “Client”).

Purpose of processing

The provision of legal services pursuant to the Agreement. It is the Client’s obligation to provide personal data, which arises from the Agreement. The processing of the Client’s personal data is necessary for the purposes of effective performance of legal obligations arising from the regulations governing the practice of advocacy. To this end, the Attorney processes the Client’s data communicated by the Client, as well as the Client’s data provided by the counterparty or other persons in the provision of legal services under the Agreement, as well as the Client’s data from public lists.

Personal data recipients

Public authorities (e.g., courts, administrative authorities), information system maintenance providers, other recipients according to the needs and instructions of the Client.

Duration of personal data processing

Personal data will be processed for the period during which the Attorney provides legal services under the Agreement, and they will subsequently be handled according to the applicable legislation (in particular the Act on Advocacy, the Act on Archiving and File Service, and the GDPR Regulation).

Rights of the client

The right of access to personal data means that the Client has the right to obtain information from the Attorney on whether he processes his or her personal data and, if so, what the data are and how they are processed. The Client also has the right to have the administrator (Attorney), at the Client’s request, rectify inaccurate personal data concerning the Client without undue delay. The Client has the right to supplement incomplete personal data at any time.

The right to erasure of personal data represents, in other words, the expressed obligation of the administrator (Attorney) to destroy personal data that he processes about the Client, if certain conditions are met and the Client requests it. The client has the right for the administrator (Attorney) in certain cases to restrict the processing of the Client’s personal data. The Client has the right at any time to object to processing which is based on the legitimate interests of the administrator (Attorney), a third party, or which is necessary for the fulfilment of a task performed in the public interest or in the exercise of public power.

The right to data portability gives the Client the opportunity to obtain personal data provided to the administrator (Attorney) by him or her in a common and machine-readable format. The Client may then pass this data on to another administrator or, if technically possible, request that the administrators pass the data on to each other.

The right to revoke consent to the processing of personal data at any time does not apply, as the personal data of the Client are processed due to the performance of the Agreement concluded with the Client, not on the basis of consent to the processing. In the event that the Client is in any way dissatisfied with the processing of his or her personal data by the administrator (Attorney), he or she may file a complaint directly with the administrator or contact the Office for Personal Data Protection. More information about the Client’s rights is available on the website of the Office for Personal Data Protection.
