If you provide your data by contacting Eden Legal, or when you or your organisation become a client, supplier, colaborator, candidate, employee, etc., then like all businesses, Eden Legal may process your data.
Eden Legal will use personal data about you for the purpose for which it is given and in accordance with applicable laws (including the EU’s GDPR) and this policy. This policy may be updated from time to time so please check back for the most current information.
1. Who is the data controller for your data?
Eden Legal is a company based in Spain, contactable here:
Eden Legal, S.L.
Under applicable EU and Spanish laws, Eden Legal is not required to appoint a dedicated “data protection officer”, and Eden Legal has not decided to appoint one voluntarily. However, if you contact us, Eden Legal commits to addressing all data-related enquiries promptly and professionally.
2. What are the purposes for which we process data? And what is the legal basis for that processing?
If you are or work for a client or potential client, or a lawyer, other service provider or supplier working with Eden Legal, or someone involved in a transaction or dispute with a client, then Eden Legal may need to obtain certain data about you for the following purposes:
(a) to provide and charge for Eden Legal’s services as agreed: the legal basis for this is that this is necessary based on our agreements with our clients;
(b) to receive, pay for, and if necessary charge clients for, services and/or goods provided to Eden Legal: the legal basis for this is that this is necessary based on our agreements with our suppliers;
(c) to comply with professional obligations and laws and regulations including in the areas of invoicing, accounting and tax, recordkeeping, “know your client” checks, due diligence, and anti-money-laundering laws: the legal basis for this that this is necessary in order to comply with Eden Legal’s legal and regulatory obligations;
(d) to promote Eden Legal’s services (e.g., for sending you news and information about Eden Legal publications, seminars or services of potential interest to you): the legal basis for this is that this is necessary for the purposes of Eden Legal’s legitimate interests, namely in managing and developing Eden Legal as a business and improving edenlegal.com
3. Does Eden Legal provide your personal data to any third parties?
Eden Legal does not share your data with third parties for any new purpose outside those listed above.
In providing services and managing its business Eden Legal may need to share your personal data with third parties who work with or provide services to us. This includes other service providers involved in your work (in which case we will share your data with your consent or within the scope of your instructions), or providers that process data on our behalf and are subject to similar obligations of data protection.
Where these are based in countries outside the European Union and EEA or other places not officially recognised by the European Commission as having equivalent data protection laws, this will be done only with your consent and/or on the basis of safeguards that are intended to ensure that your data is kept as secure as under applicable EU and national laws. These may include standard EU contractual clauses or the EU-U.S. privacy shield and you may contact us as indicated above to obtain a copy of such safeguards.
Other circumstances where Eden Legal may need to disclose your personal data to third parties could be (i) where required by regulators, courts and applicable laws, regulations or codes of practice; (ii) in connection with actual or threatened legal proceedings; or (iii) in order to exercise or defend Eden Legal’s legal rights.
4. How long is the data stored for?
As a general rule, Eden Legal will only retain your data for as long as necessary for the purpose for which it was collected.
However, please note that personal data in Eden Legal’s files may need to be retained even after the end of your instructions, service provision or other relationship, in particular in order to comply with applicable legal or professional rules and to maintain properly and professionally Eden Legal’s files and records.
Eden Legal will normally retain records for the longer of the limitation period applicable to claims in relation to services provided (under Spanish law normally five years unless interrupted) and the mandatory period for holding tax-related records (normally six years).
In relation to potential clients and marketing related data, Eden Legal will retain this data for the time that the relationship remains active and will review on an annual basis whether the information is still relevant or should be erased.
5. What are your legal rights in relation to your personal data?
Applicable laws give you various rights relating to your data. For example, you are entitled to ask at any time:
(a) for access to a copy of the personal data that Eden Legal holds about you;
(b) to have any incorrect personal data about you corrected;
(c) for data about you to be erased (also referred to as the “right to be forgotten”) or if that is not possible (e.g. due to a legal retention period as referred to above) to have processing restricted, or to object to particular processing;
(d) to receive an electronic copy of data you provided to us, for provision to a new service provider (also referred to as “data portability”).
Where Eden Legal processes any data based on consent that you have given in the past, then you are always allowed to withdraw that consent (although the processing that took place before withdrawal will still be legal).
If you receive any marketing information from Eden Legal and wish not to receive such information in future please email us at email@example.com
. You also have the opportunity to opt out of future communications whenever Eden Legal sends you any such material.
However, please note that for compliance and professional reasons, personal data in Eden Legal’s files may need to be retained even after the completion of your inquiry, instructions or service provision, as noted above.
Eden Legal is always reachable as indicated in Section 1 above to resolve any issues or doubts you may have in relation to processing of your data or to help with exercising your legal rights. If you believe that your rights have not been respected then you also have a right to complain to the Supervisory Authority in your country (i.e. the Data Protection Authority, which for Spain is the “Agencia Española de Protección de Datos
”) to ask them for a resolution.
6. Do we have to provide personal data?
You do not have to provide any personal data in order to use edenlegal.com
In addition to data for day to day contacts, such as email and telephone, Eden Legal will normally, in accordance with applicable laws and professional obligations, require personal data to be able to identify all clients and for organisations also their ultimate beneficial owners and other beneficiaries of services provided. This may include personal data relating to you personally, and/or your organization’s shareholders, directors, officers, employees and/or service providers. You warrant and undertake that such information is accurate and up to date, you are entitled to provide it to Eden Legal, and have obtained all necessary consents to do so. If you do not provide or update such data when requested, then it is likely that Eden Legal will not be able to provide services to you or your organisation.

8. What about cookies?
Eden Legal uses Google Analytics to record the pages visited, date, time and duration of your visit for audience measurement purposes. This normally requires a cookie to be set on your browser which will also record e.g. the IP address or other information relating to your device.
