In certain cases it may be necessary for Sørensen Advocaten to give third parties access to personal data. Below is a, non-exhaustive, overview:

  • Third parties that are relevant to the legal services we provide, such as counterparties, local attorneys, courts, regulatory authorities and government agencies;

Transfers of your personal data to the above third parties will be made only for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

Third parties to whom we provide your personal data may themselves be responsible for compliance with privacy laws. In that case, Sørensen Advocaten is neither responsible nor liable for the processing of your personal data by these third parties. Insofar as a third party processes your personal data in the capacity of processor of Sørensen Advocaten and thus acts at the request and pursuant to instructions of Sørensen Advocaten, Sørensen Advocaten will enter into a processing agreement with such third party that meets the requirements set out in the AVG.

Data outside the European Union

In order to provide our services, it may be necessary for Sørensen Advocaten to transfer your personal data to a recipient in a country outside the European Union. In that case, Sørensen Advocaten ensures that such transfer of data is in accordance with the AVG.


When processing personal data by Sørensen Advocaten, Sørensen Advocaten relies on various bases. The data processing may be necessary for the performance of an agreement (to provide legal services) that we have entered into or necessary to perform a legal duty. In some cases we ask your explicit consent, for example for the use of certain cookies, or, if you are not a client, the receipt of commercial communications.

Finally, there are processing operations based on a legitimate interest of Sørensen Advocaten, such as processing for internal management purposes, for effective communication, quality improvement or direct marketing processing for clients and active contacts of Sørensen Advocaten. In the latter case, an opt-out is offered at all times.
