Protection of personal data (GDPR)

With a thorough understanding and monitoring of legislative developments and modern business challenges, we provide expert legal advice to ensure your company or organisation’s successful compliance with data protection regulations (GDPR).

After carefully analysing your business processes, we identify what personal data you collect, how such data are processed and what steps you need to take to ensure compliance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and national legislation. In addition to advising our clients, we provide relevant training where necessary and ensure that our clients’ operations are compliant by drafting individual policies, rules and guidelines relating to the collection, processing and retention of personal data.

We work with our clients’ technical teams to ensure that the policies and guidelines are successfully implemented in practice, thereby ensuring appropriate controls and mitigating the risk of potential data breaches. We carefully assess our clients’ business and propose an appropriate set of security measures to protect personal data from unauthorised access, loss or misuse. In the event of a security incident or personal data breach, we respond quickly and manage crisis situations effectively. Rapid response and professional management significantly reduces the potential damage and preserves the company’s reputation.

Our key services include:

  • Comprehensive legal advice on personal data protection: We provide expert advice to help clients understand their obligations under the GDPR and national legislation, and develop personalised policies and guidelines tailored to their business.
  • Review of business processes and procedures for the protection of personal data: Through a thorough analysis, we identify potential risks and ensure compliance with regulations.
  • Drafting and reviewing contracts and documents: We draft the relevant personal data processing agreements, consents, policies and other legal documents, the relevant website text for personal data processing information and cookie notices, and the documents required to implement video surveillance.
  • Education and training: We organise training for employees to make them aware of the importance of protecting and handling personal data.
  • Response to security incidents and personal data breaches: We respond quickly in the event of a breach, direct crisis management and ensure business compliance with personal data protection.

Properly defined cookies help you avoid unnecessary legal issues and demonstrate respect for your visitors’ privacy and choices. Clear and transparent information about how personal data are processed builds trust and encourages users to entrust their data to the company. Including an appropriate cookie policy and information about the processing of personal data on your website will help you build trust with your customers and clients and enforce high standards of data protection.

The protection of personal data is key to building trust with the customers and clients with whom business entities do business, as concern for their privacy and data security demonstrates the business entity’s commitment and responsibility to their rights and confirms a commitment to the ethical and lawful handling of data. By taking appropriate security measures and complying with the requirements of the GDPR, business entities build a solid foundation for long-term relationships with their customers and clients, and create a positive reputation for their company or organisation in the marketplace.
