Last update: August 2020.

DBCR respects the right to privacy of persons who visit the Site and who contact us electronically. When you interact with us, you may provide us with information to help us identify you (e.g., name, email, telephone number).  Also, certain information that helps us identify you is necessary for the performance of the legal assistance contracts that we conclude with you or the issuance of invoices/receipts.    In addition, DBCR collects some information about its co-workers and employees, according to the law.  This information is known as “personal data”.  This Privacy Policy complies with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (hereinafter “GDPR”).



  1. Processing based on consent [art. 6(1)(a) of the GDPR]

In the activity of DBCR, the data processing based on the consent of the data subjects may be different, depending on the specific activities carried out and the purposes.  For example, the data of natural person clients for promotional purposes (legal alerts/newsletters by email) is processed on the basis of free, specific, informed and unambiguous consent, legally obtained from clients.

  1. Processing necessary for concluding and performing a contract [art. 6(1)(b) of the GDPR]

This type of processing takes place, for example, when the initiative to conclude the legal assistance contract belongs to a new a natural person client.  DBCR will also process the contact details of a new collaborating lawyer to conclude the collaboration contract.

  1. Processing necessary for compliance with a legal obligation [art. 6(1)(c) of the GDPR]

The processing of personal data on the basis of the need to comply with a legal obligation requires the existence of a mandatory legal rule applicable to DBCR.  In this case, the processing is necessary to comply with the legal obligation.

  1. On the basis of the legislation on the prevention and sanctioning of money laundering and the prevention and combating of terrorist financing (Law no. 656/2002 on the prevention and sanctioning of money laundering, and on the establishment of measures to prevent and combat terrorist financing), lawyers have certain obligations to implement specific know-your-client measures and to report suspicious transactions. The processing of personal data necessary to comply with these obligations is based on the legal obligation.
  2. Lawyers are required to keep certain specific records of their work, such as the electronic register of documents drawn up by a lawyer. The processing of personal data carried out for this purpose has as a legal ground the compliance with a legal obligation.
  3. Certain data processing performed by the Financial-Accounting Department of DBCR, such as withholding and payment of social security contributions for auxiliary staff, employee leave records, are based on the legal obligations regulated by the labour law.
  4. Processing necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest [art. 6(1)(e) of the GDPR]

According to art. 39 of Law no. 51/1995, in the exercise of their profession, lawyers are indispensable partners of justice.  Therefore, the professional activity of a lawyer is exercised to serve justice, thus serving a public interest.  In this case, the basis for the processing of personal data by DBCR is art. 6(1)(e) of the GDPR.  In order to carry out their professional activity to serve justice, lawyers process the personal data of the adverse parties or of third parties.  The basis of this processing is not the consent of the data subjects or the legal assistance contract concluded with the client.  The legal ground is the performance of a task that serves a public interest.

DBCR does not intentionally request or collect personal data from minors.  If DBCR finds that it has accidentally collected personal data from a minor, it will erase that data as soon as possible.  However, DBCR will be able to collect personal data from minors when there is the express consent of parents or legal representatives to this end.
