Data Protection / ePrivacy

The Firm provides a wide range of legal services on data protection matters.

 

Avoiding exposure –  compliance & risk-management

We assist our clients with preparing privacy policies, setting up whistle-blowing schemes and advise them in connection with issues concerning data processing at work and the transfer of personal data to a country outside the European Economic Area (e.g. use of standard contractual clauses or binding corporate rules (BCR)).

 

We regularly advise companies on issues relating to direct marketing (ePrivacy).

 

Preparing for GDPR

We also advise clients on how to prepare for the new regime the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will bring about. In this regard, we provide assistance to clients in connection with preparing, amongst others, the records of data processing activities, the analysis concerning the designation of data protection officers (DPO) and whether or not a data protection impact assessment (DPIA) needs to be prepared. We also assist our clients in drawing up breach policies and the register of data breaches. In preparation for GDPR we also offer and provide trainings to our clients.

 

Notification, Defense & disputes with authorities and in courts

The Firm represents clients before the National Data Protection and Freedom of Information Authority in the course of the notification of data processing to the data protection register, as well as in data protection supervisory proceedings.

News, developments

The GDPR entered into force on 25 May 2016 and, in the past 12 months, we have been experiencing that more and more entities wish to hear about the GDPR so that they can take the steps necessary for preparing for the regime that the new legislation will bring along. Our aim with launching this blog is to share information about the GDPR and we hope that those who read our posts will find them useful and informative. In our view, sharing information and thoughts and having discussions concerning the provisions of the GDPR may turn out to be an effective tool for assisting interpretation and preparation.
