Kalev & Partners does not collect and process personal data of minors where it is aware that the consent has not been given in accordance with the conditions, as laid down above. If you think your child might have provided us with his/her personal data in breach of these conditions, please contact us by using the contact information provided in the Contact us section, and we shall promptly delete these personal data.
Basis for processing, types of personal data, means of collection, purposes of processing
Kalev & Partners acts as a personal data controller with regard to the Subscribers’ personal data that are being collected and processed with regard to the provision of the Services. Kalev & Partners stores and otherwise processes the Subscribers’ personal data in accordance with the applicable domestic acts and the relevant international legislation.
Kalev & Partners uses the consent given in the process of subscribing for the Services as the legal basis for the processing of the personal data of the Subscribers.
The strictly required information is limited to only the e-mail address that the respective Subscriber provides to us upon subscribing for a Service. Providing us with a name and a phone number upon requesting legal advice is optional and providing such data occurs solely at the respective Subscriber’s discretion. Kalev & Partners does not collect and does not receive personal data by other means. Providing the required personal data is a necessary condition for the provision of Services, as without this strict minimum of personal data Kalev & Partners will not be able to provide the Services.
Kalev & Partners deliberately limits the collection of personal data to the strict minimum required for the provision of the Services to its Subscribers. Moreover, whenever you subscribe for the periodic legal updates Service, we send an e-mail containing a verification link to make sure that you have indeed requested receiving this Service. Since the e-mail address is the only type of personal data that is necessarily required upon subscribing for a Service, you may choose to provide us with an e-mail account that has been registered for the purpose of receiving the respective Service in particular, and that, furthermore, does not contain your names, and as such would not allow identifying you, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org.

Kalev & Partners retains the personal data for as long as their processing is necessary with regard to fulfilling the purposes for which they have been collected, i.e. providing the Services for as long as the respective Subscriber is subscribed for and/or may benefit from said Services, as well as for no more than 6 months after these purposes have been fulfilled.
Transfers of personal data to third countries within the meaning and scope of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR) are not envisaged, but, if ever necessary, they will be conducted in accordance with the conditions, as laid down in the said Regulation, and the Subscribers shall receive in advance all relevant information, as required by law.
