Data protection law

Data protection plays a key role in the online sector.  Matters such as Cross Device Targeting, Online Behavioral Advertising and Progammatic Advertising are not feasible unless the data protection environment is properly taken into account. We are experts in these issues and advise significant numbers of technology providers, marketers, publishers and agencies in all aspects of data protection relating to the relevant laws, such as the BDSG (the Federal Data Protection Act), TMG (the Telemedia Law) and of course also in respect of the forthcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation.
