Attention to privacy and the protection of personal data is growing. Due to the many technological developments of recent decades, there are hardly any limits to the amount of data that can be obtained about individuals. These developments ensure that the regulations in the field of privacy also continue to develop. As of 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is in force throughout Europe.
For organizations, privacy regulations include an increase in obligations and responsibilities. In addition, organizations are confronted with a strengthening and expansion of privacy rights of the involved individuals.
The lawyers of BVDV advise and litigate on the implementation of privacy legislation within organizations. In addition, we assist clients in the enforcement process of the Dutch Data Protection Authority and we support clients if a data breach occurs.
Our specialists in the field of privacy and data protection work closely with the specialists in other areas of law, such as liability law, employment law and corporate law. This allows us to provide your organization with the best possible service.
What can BVDV do for you?
We can test whether your organization complies with current privacy regulations and what could or should be improved. The purpose of this review is that you:
- know which personal data you process and why; and
- know what obligations you have and how you can meet them.
Based on the results, we then help to ensure that your business meets and continues to meet the existing obligations. If you would like more information about privacy law, or if you have a specific question about your processing activities, please feel free to contact us.
