As the online marketplace continues to grow, companies throughout the world are facing increasingly strict – and often inconsistent – regulations regarding the acquisition, use, and protection of personal information.
Our global privacy, data protection, and data security attorneys advise clients on a broad range of privacy and data protection matters, including developing and implementing privacy policies and procedures, privacy-related litigation, regulatory investigations, global compliance, cross-border data transfers, website terms and conditions, social media and other new information technologies, cybersecurity and network intrusion issues, and contractual matters involving privacy and security. We also counsel clients on compliance with regulations such as the TCPA, COPPA, HIPAA, GLBA, and Privacy Shield in the United States and the 95/46/CE Directive and GDPR on privacy and data protection and domestic implementation legislation in European countries.
