Any special categories of personal data and personal data about criminal convictions and offences.
However, we generally do not want to receive special categories of personal data and personal data about criminal convictions and offences. We only process such data where it is necessary for us in order to provide our advice and assistance.
We process personal data about our client which is necessary for the performance of the contract with our client and to provide legal advice or in order to take steps at the request of the client prior to entering into the contract, cf.

General Data Protection Regulation, article 6, paragraph 1, point f. Note, that the data subject has the right to object against the processing, cf. General Data Protection Regulation article 21, paragraph 4.
We process (forward) civil registration numbers to public authorities for purposes such as making registrations on behalf of clients on websites such as virk.dk, tinglysning.dk or minretssag.dk which are required for the purpose of unique identification, cf. General Data Protection Regulation, article 87, cf. the Data Protection Act section 11, paragraph 2, number 3.
In cases where we do process special categories of personal data or personal data regarding criminal convictions and offences pertaining to the client, counterparties and the employees of the client and/or counterparties, such processing is necessary in order for a legal claim to be established, exercised or defended, cf.

General Data Protection Regulation article 21, paragraph 4.

Categories of recipients
KLAR is bound by a statutory obligation to maintain confidentiality and will not generally transfer your personal data to third parties.
We only transfer personal data to our client, counterparties, or courts as well as other public authorities in cases where it is necessary to do so in order for a legal claim to be established, exercised or defended.
In addition, we transfer personal data to our auditors and to other professional advisors in certain cases, e.g. so that auditors can perform audits or so that we can receive professional advice from other consultants and advisors.
Further, we also use external suppliers, such as IT suppliers, accountants, etc. which may receive personal data in connection with the assistance they provide to us. KLAR enters into data processing agreements with external suppliers which process personal data on behalf of KLAR in order to ensure that all necessary security measures are adopted. We do not transfer personal data to countries outside of the EU/EEA unless such a transfer is being made to our client, counterparties or courts. In these situations, we will ensure appropriate or suitable safeguards in the absence of an adequacy decision by the Commission.
