Data protection

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.

General Data Protetion Regulation (GDPR)

We have almost twenty years experience in the field of data protection, a unique asset in Liechtenstein.

The GDPR entails numerous changes and innovations. We follow the rapid developments regarding the GDPR and advise companies on how to proceed in implementing its requirements. In addition to staff training, training as a data protection officer or the preparation of the records of processing activities, we support professional associations as well as small and large companies in general and provide information on our blog.

The GDPR also offers the possibility of drafting codes of conduct by professional associations. We draw up such rules of conduct or also act as (external) data protection officer.

We also advise companies with special questions regarding the legal situation in Liechtenstein with regard to the GDPR (implementation of the Data Protection Act and of special legislation with regard to data protection).

We represent our clients before all data protection authorities and in related penalty proceedings (for which the experience in the former Article 29 Working Party is very helpful).

Our participation in the Data Protection Association in Liechtenstein www.dsv.li, the cooperation with the Professional Association of Data Protection Officers in Germany (BvD) e.V. www.bvdnet.de  and the Association of Austrian Data Protection Officers: www.privacyofficers.at  excellently rounds off our offer.
