(“Uría Menéndez”). However, certain information is collected and recorded in the systems of Uría Menéndez (e.g. type of Internet browser, operating system, IP address from which the pages of the Website have been accessed) in order to improve Users’ browsing experience and to manage the Website itself. The Website may also use cookies and similar technologies, which use is subject to Users giving their consent in accordance with the Cookie Policy.
  • Access to content or services for which data are requested. Without prejudice to the above, Uría Menéndez may require that Users provide certain personal data, primarily their given name, surnames, email address, company name, professional occupation and professional contact, in order to access certain information or use certain Website content or services. In these cases, Uría Menéndez will provide Users with the necessary information before processing their data.

In addition to managing the requests for information, content or services that Users expressly make or to which they consent, Uría Menéndez has a legitimate interest in using the data that are collected or generated in order to:

Uría Menéndez and its offices across the world form an international firm with international activities that may entail international data transfers, some of which may be to countries that do not afford a level of data protection equivalent to that within the EU. When any of our services or IT systems providers are located outside of the EU, Uría Menéndez adopts all the necessary safeguards in accordance with the law to ensure proper data management. 

The legal bases upon which Uría Menéndez is permitted to process the data of Users are:

  • Uría Menéndez’s legitimate interest in improving the Website and its security, and in conducting studies and analyses regarding the operation and use of the Website, and
  • Uría Menéndez sending information and news on legal current affairs to Users who have given their consent to the same or when it is in Uría Menéndez’s legitimate interest to do so.

Data will be retained for as long as there are contractual obligations deriving from services or content requested by Users and subsequently until the expiration of legal, contractual or professional responsibilities that require they be stored (e.g. until the expiration of responsibility deriving from data protection or cybersecurity regulations). In the case of data that are processed in order to send information regarding legal current affairs, they may be stored as long as Users do not object to receiving information via any of the various free-of-charge and straightforward means that are made available to them for doing so.

Users may exercise their right of access, rights to rectification, erasure, object, restriction of processing and data portability, when applicable, with respect to the processing for which Uría Menéndez is the controller, by sending a written request to Uría Menéndez’s data protection officer at the email address delegado-pd@uria.com, providing evidence of their identity.
