Data Protection

Our data protection team provides specialised advice on a wide range of data protection issues.

We assist organisations in ensuring compliance with data protection regulations. This includes reviewing and drafting data subject to consent notifications, drafting privacy and data protection policies, drafting data protection agreements, responding to data access requests and dealing with data protection concerns arising from commercial contracts.

We also advise our clients on their obligations under the Electronic Privacy Regulations 2011, and we assist clients with the drafting of direct marketing consent clauses. We represent clients in prosecutions taken by the Data Protection Commissioner in respect of breaches of the Electronic Privacy Regulations 2011. 

As the May 2018 deadline for implementation of the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) draws closer, we are assisting our clients with their preparations for this. We are advising them on their obligations under the GDPR, which includes reviewing and updating data protection notices, and reviewing and updating privacy and data protection policies.
