Privacy and data protection

Business privacy is essentially about respecting and balancing the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals against a company’s own commercial or other interests. Violations of privacy regulations could result in sanctions, including high fines, and have major consequences for the reputation of a company. We assist clients in procuring documentation and introducing practices that safeguard both privacy and commercial interests.
