6. Legal grounds for the processing

A controller may only process personal data if this can be based on one of the exhaustive legal grounds laid down in the General Data Protection Decree. The four legal grounds used by Kiveld are:

6.1. Approval

You will always have the right to withdraw any permission you have given to process your personal data based on our request.

If you award us a contract for the provision of legal or tax services, we will only process your personal data if and to the extent necessary to carry out the contract.

7. Processors

Kiveld may hire service providers (processors) for the processing of your personal data which solely process your personal data based on our instructions. We will conclude a processor agreement with these processors which meets the requirements laid down in the General Data Protection Decree.

We, for example, work with service providers offering SaaS solutions (Software as a Service) or hosting services. We also hire IT service providers that provide support to the safe and stable operation of our systems. We also make use of third-party services to send newsletters and commercial emails. These are examples of parties that can be considered processors within the meaning of the General Data Protection Decree.

8. Sharing personal data with third parties

We sometimes need to share your personal data with third parties. This may be necessary to handle your file, depending on the circumstances. There are also legal obligations that require us to disclose personal data to third parties.

Personal data will be shared with third parties in among others the following cases:

  • We may need to share your personal data with third parties to be able to handle a file. An example is when litigating against another party, when concluding an agreement, or when drawing up a notarial deed with multiple stakeholders.
  • If a court ruling requires us to share personal data with third parties, we will need to comply with this.
  • Your personal data will not be shared with third parties for commercial purposes. There is one exception to this. We sometimes organise a joint activity such as an event or seminar together with another organisation. If this is the case, we will only share the necessary contact details.
  • Personal Data can also be provided to third parties in case of a reorganisation or merger of our company or sale of (a part) thereof.

9. Transfer outside the (European Economic Area) EEA

We may need to transfer your personal data to parties located outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). This may be necessary to have your file handled by an attorney, civil law notary or tax lawyer, depending on the circumstances.

Based on the General Data Protection Decree, personal data may only be transferred to parties outside of the EEA if a suitable level of protection of the personal data is ensured or if a specific deviation applies

We may transfer personal data to a party outside of the EEA if this is necessary for the implementation of a contract agreement for the delivery of legal or tax services, or if this is necessary in the context of a legal claim for which we provide legal aid.

10. If you have questions about your personal data
