Data Protection

Today companies can hardly afford to take the subject of data protection lightly. A number of scandals in the area of employee monitoring and a continuous tightening of applicable laws have brought data protection to the public’s attention and into the focus of a company’s day-to-day activities. HR departments increasingly have to deal with employee data protection. Advertising specialists must not disregard the required protection of personal data when using the important tool of direct marketing. In light of the fact that data protection supervision authorities are called upon to strictly pursue all violations of data protection laws and to impose fines in cases of violations, qualified legal advice in this area is essential for companies.

Our services comprise the following:

  • Advice on designing and reviewing direct marketing concepts in accordance with the requirements of applicable data protection laws
  • Preparation, review and negotiation of standard contract forms for data processing
  • Correspondence with data protection supervisory authorities
  • Defense of the company if complaints are received, for instance as a result of cold calling, unsolicited emails, etc.
  • Advice on inquiries for personal data and other requests for information relevant under data protection legislation
  • Advice on data protection within the company with respect to storage and use of employee data and assistance in achieving compliance with data protection laws (data compliance)
