Personal data protection law

  • About this practice area

    Personal data protection has been our forte for years. With the entry into force of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the legal issues relating to data protection have gained paramount importance. The GDPR has entirely changed the approach to personal data protection, making entrepreneurs and public entities take specific, extensive measures. The requirements increase with the spread of new technologies that use personal data. Activities in this area must be adapted to comply with personal data protection laws.

    We provide a wide range of services related to the implementation and application of the GDPR. We treat personal data as one of the essential assets of an enterprise or information resources of a public entity, requiring protection which invariably depends on the specifics of a particular organization. Our approach brings tangible results to our Clients. We have successfully implemented the GDPR in more than 100 organizations. We have also acted in many proceedings before the President of the Polish Personal Data Protection Office (UODO, formerly the Inspector General for Personal Data Protection) and in judicial and administrative proceedings.     

    Personal data protection measures are required of any entity, whether they run a business activity or perform public tasks. The sector and the size of entity do not matter in this respect. Entrepreneurs and public entities that do not take care to process personal data lawfully may be held liable and run the risk of severe damage to their reputation.
