matterius is an online platform that makes the experience of business lawyers transparent, verifiable and findable. Lawyers can create a lawyer profile on matterius, describe and publish matters and optionally have them confirmed online by the client.
For all website visitors
matterius is operated in Germany and does not use service providers or data centers outside the EU.
We do not use any third-party tracking and marketing tools. We only analyze page visits based on browser log files, without personal identification or profiling.
We only use technically necessary cookies and do not use tracking or marketing cookies.
In order to register, we only need your name and e-mail address and for your lawyer profile your jurisdiction and practice area. All other information is voluntary.
You have full control over your matter list and can change, delete or unpublish matters at any time.
To have matters confirmed by your client (optional), you do not need to provide us with details about your client. You yourself send a link to your client. The client then gives his contact details directly to us and decides for himself whether and which of his information may be published. After confirmation, we delete all contact details.
When you confirm a matter as a client, we ask you to provide us with the following information: business e-mail address, name, company and position.
We use your business email address to validate that you work for the client. Your email will not be published.
Name, company and position will only be published if you explicitly consent to this for each individual piece of information.
If we cannot validate from the e-mail address whether you work for the client, we can use the name, company and position for a plausibility check.
Immediately after validation, i.e. usually 72 hours after your matter confirmation, we delete all your data (unless you have explicitly agreed to the publication of individual details).
You do not need a user account to confirm matters.
For recipients of direkt marketing
We collect contact details and information about your field of activity from public sources and use it for direct marketing purposes (e.g. marketing letters). The legal basis is our legitimate interest in targeted direct marketing, Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. You can object at any time (e.g. by email to privacy -at- matterius.com). We usually store your data until your objection. We may use service providers (e.g. printers, lettershops) for mailing.
For the contact details of the controller and further information on your rights, please see the privacy notices for website visitors (sections 2, 10 including "Your right to object").
