Privacy law has become increasingly important in day-to-day business in recent years. Privacy law plays a significant role in every area of corporate business – be it the processing customer transactions, supplier relations, online and direct marketing, fraud prevention or in any way connected with employees.

Likewise in communications with the public and between contracting parties, the issue of data protection has created a mindset of expectations towards companies as an independent right – and not just through the imposition of attention-grabbing, public administrative penalties. Hence, privacy law has become a mandatory component of every business organisation and compliance strategy, and must be taken into account for entrepreneurial decisions and arrangements.

On 25 May 2016, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force. By 25 May 2018, all processing of personal data must comply with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation – a task of particular importance with a view of the significant increase of fines for violations of data protection rules.
