Responsibility for data protection of the website lies with Rechtsanwalt Rainer Polzin, Blücherplatz 2, 10961 Berlin, Germany, Phone: (+49-30) 2589-8734, info@ra-polzin.de

I attach great importance to the protection of your personal data. Personal data includes your name, your e-mail address, and your phone number, for example. I treat your personal data with confidentiality and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations, in particular the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the confidentiality regulations for the legal profession, as well as this data protection statement.

This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as requests you send to me as the site operator. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the fact that the address bar of the browser changes from “http://” to “https://” and by the lock symbol to the one side of the address bar in your browser.

Usage of the contact forms (email and phone)

You can contact me at any time using the contact forms I provide. I collect, process, and use the data you voluntarily provide (name, e-mail address, phone number) exclusively for the processing of your specific request.

Your data will only be stored if it becomes necessary in processing your specific request.

Google Maps

My website uses Google Maps to visualize maps and to generate directions to my office. When using Google Maps, Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, California 94043) also collects, processes, and uses data on the use of the Maps functions by visitors to my website, in particular your IP address, the start address entered as part of the route planner function, and other data. You can find more detailed information about data processing by Google in Google’s privacy protection policy at www.google.com/privacypolicy.html. Please read Google’s Additional Terms of Service for Google Maps at: https://www.google.com/intl/de_US/help/terms_maps.html.

You can completely deactivate the web service of Google Maps if you do not agree to the future transmission of your data to Google in the context of the use of Google Maps. To do so, deactivate the JavaScript application in your browser. Google Maps cannot be used then on this website and the map will not display the location.

Google Web Fonts

I use web fonts provided by Google to uniformly display fonts on my website. When you access a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.

For this reason, the browser you are using must connect to Google’s servers. This gives Google knowledge that my website has been accessed via your IP address.

A default font is used by your computer, tablet, smartphone, etc. if your browser does not support Google Web Fonts.

Font Awesome

I use web fonts provided by Fonticons, Inc. to uniformly display fonts on my website. When you access a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this reason, your browser must connect to servers hosted by Fonticons, Inc. This enables Fonticons, Inc. to know that my website has been accessed via your IP address.
