Data Protection

Due to our long-term activity in the field of data protection, we frequently advise any kind of data controllers, from SMEs to national and international groups of companies with and without subsidiaries in the European Union. We focus on legal analysis and structuring of new business models that directly or indirectly involve processing of personal data, advise on complex data gatherings via different business models (consent; marketing; CRM data bases; big data) including evaluation of data processings and transfers, as well as in proceedings with the Austrian Data Protection Authority (Datenschutzbehörde). The latter covers all range of activities from minor notification proceedings to extensive screening and restructuring of existing registrations or complex requests for approval.

In addition to the currently applicable Austrian Data Protection Act we are familiar with the upcoming changes by the General Data Protection Regulation. We advise our clients on all aspects of the GDPR like drafting of the required documentation or assistance with a Data Protection Impact Assessment.

We are well-known on the market for our practical and efficient approach, as well as our ability to enabling solutions closest to our clients' expectations reflecting economic interests. We always aim to achieve a balance between protecting personal rights of data subjects, provisions by Austrian labour and data protection law as well as compliance and risk operations. As a result of our strong IT focus we are frequently assisting clients with a technological background in complex IT projects like Outsourcing or Cloud Computing. For years, we are also supporting banks, credit institutions, insurances and other clients under regulatory control, including a clear focus on international data transfer.
