The text below contains information on how personal data, obtained within the framework of our operation as lawyers, in connection with other business contacts and through our website, are processed at Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton Advokat KB. For information regarding the processing of personal data in connection with recruitment processes, see karriar.kilpatricktownsend.se/data-privacy.

1. How we process personal data

Kilpatrick Townsend & Stockton Advokat KB ( “we” or “us”) is the Personal Data Controller with regard to the personal data which we obtain:

  • in connection with matters or which we otherwise process when client matters are prepared or administered,
  • in connection with other business contacts (such as registering to our seminars or subscribing to our newsletters), and
  • when visiting our website.

You are not required to provide personal data to us. However, if we do not receive certain personal data, we cannot accept a matter as we cannot carry out the required conflict and anti-money laundering checks. Visits to our website can be made without you as a visitor having to provide any personal data or accept cookies. For information about our use of cookies, see www.kilpatricktownsend.se/en/cookies/.

Personal data obtained in connection with matters are processed in order to carry out mandatory conflict checks and (where applicable) anti-money laundering checks, to perform and manage the matter, to safeguard your interests as well as for accounting and billing purposes. This data is processed in order for us to fulfill our agreements with clients and our legal obligations.

Personal data is also processed for business and methodology development, market analyses, statistics and risk management. The data is in this case processed on the basis of our legitimate interest to develop business and to communicate with our contacts.

2. Transfer of personal data

Personal data may be transferred between our group of companies for the purpose of performing conflict checks and money laundering checks, for information and knowledge exchange and for resource allocation. We will not disclose personal data to third parties other than when (i) it is specifically agreed between us and you, (ii) it is necessary within the scope of a given matter in order to safeguard your rights, (iii) it is necessary in order for us to fulfil a statutory obligation, comply with a decision of a public authority or a court of law; or (iv) if we engage an external service provider who performs services on behalf of our firm. The data may be transferred to courts, authorities, counterparties and counterparties’ counsel if it is necessary to safeguard your rights.

3. How your personal data is saved

In accordance with our obligation under the Swedish Bar Association Code of Conduct, personal data is saved for a period of ten years from the completion date of the matter, or for a longer period if required by the nature of the matter. Data processed for the purpose of developing, analyzing and marketing our business is saved for a period of six months after the last contact has taken place. If you unsubscribe from a newsletter or similar, the information will be deleted immediately.

4. Your rights as a client

You have the right to request information about the personal data we process about you (free of charge). We will correct or delete data that is incorrect or restrict the processing of such data, at your request or on our own initiative. However, in certain cases there is other legislation which restrains our ability to immediately delete your personal data. We are obligated to save parts of your personal data for a certain period of time in order to comply with legal requirements, such as accounting, anti-money laundering and fraud or with regard to statutes of limitations. Further, you have the right to request that your data is not processed for direct marketing purposes. In addition, you have the right to receive your personal data in a machine-readable format or, if technically possible, to instruct us to transfer the data to a third party. If you are dissatisfied with our processing of personal data, you can file a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority. In Sweden, this is Integritetsskydddsmyndigheten (www.imy.se).You can also contact the supervisory authority of the country in which you live or work.

We are an international law firm, and data is transferred to the United States by means of so-called model clauses. The model clauses guarantee the protection of personal data.

5. Additions and amendments

We reserve the right to change and update this privacy policy from time to time in order to reflect changed legal requirements or our processing. The latest version of our policy regarding processing of personal data is always available on our website.
