The rules under the DPA are complex and businesses often get them wrong. Our solicitors can give advice to safeguard against breaching the requirements under the DPA and to avoid:

  • investigation by the Information Commissioner’s Office and possible fines; and
  • negative public perception and damage to an organisation’s brand.

Our services include:

  • Advising Data Controllers and Data Processors under the DPA.
  • Drafting and advising upon Data Protection Agreements and Notifications setting out an organisation’s attitudes to data protection.
  • Drafting Website Privacy Policies.
  • Drafting Internal Procedures and Policies, including Data Protection and Privacy Policies.
  • Advising in relation to disputes regarding breach of confidential information.
  • Advising on disclosures of data upon the transfer of businesses.
  • Assisting with advice to marketing departments on data protection laws in relation to direct marketing (including fax, telephone, e-mail and postal).
