Privacy & Data

The Firm’s Privacy And Data Practice Focuses On Advising Websites, Software And SaaS Providers, Data Processors, Data Owners, And Other E-Businesses Subject To Data Processing And Privacy Laws To Help Ensure Such Parties Stay Compliant With An Ever Evolving Slate Of State, Federal, And International Privacy Laws.

For businesses, this means implementing, maintaining, and updating both external and internal policies and procedures for data processing, data retention, and security. This is especially true in the digital age, where most companies maintain an online presence and, whether intentionally or not, may reach an audience spanning multiple states or the globe. To assist, the Firm conducts privacy audits for clients, and also prepares and reviews both external and internal Privacy Policies, Retention Policies, Processing Policies, Security and Response Policies, and Employee Handbooks and Policies. For clients involved in data processing transactions, the Firm also assists in negotiating, drafting, and reviewing Data Processing Agreements and Addendum.

The Firm has assisted clients with navigating issues involving, for example, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulations (“GDPR”), the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”), the Stored Communications Act (“SCA”), the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), the California Privacy Rights Act (“CPRA”), and the UK Data Protection Act 2018 (“UK GDPR”). With ever more jurisdictions enacting data privacy laws, including, for example, Colorado with the Colorado Privacy Act (“CPA”), it is imperative that e-businesses, data controllers, and data processors understand what laws and statutes they are subject to and take steps to comply with such regulations. This is true for both business heavily involved in data processing activities, and for business who, although not focused on data processing, maintain an online presence through a website or other medium where they may intentionally or unintentionally collect user information.
