We protect the interests of our customers if their privacy is infringed, so if their personal data is processed illegally (e. g. data are unlawfully collected, used, or disclosed). We also support our clients in the exercise of their rights and represent them vis-à-vis companies and authorities. We also advise our customers on how they can protect their own data. Data protection is an everyday topic, whether in business, at work or privately.
We advise companies in dealing with all data protection regulations. This includes typical topics such as how a company has to organise itself, general data processing, how sensitive data is to be handled, who has access to data, what kind of data can be passed on to whom, what has to be considered when passing on data to authorities, how to deal with errors or complaints, and much more. We prepare the necessary (internal) documents, sensitize or train employees.
