These data are processed based on an agreement with you or applicable Swedish law.

If necessary for the safeguarding of your rights, the personal data may be disclosed to courts, public authorities, counterparties and counterparty agents.
We do not save the personal data longer than necessary given the purpose of the processing, unless otherwise required or permitted by law. In accordance with the obligation for Real Advokatbyrå Aktiebolag to comply with the Code of Conduct of the Swedish Bar Association, personal data is stored for a period of ten years, from the end of our engagement.

If you unsubscribe from marketing communication, your data will be deleted immediately.
