Regulation / Privacy and Data Protection

Technological developments in recent years have created a new reality in which information is incessantly flowing from place to place. Although the ability to transmit personal information and save it in databases has become a significant and profitable asset for many companies, this is accompanied by certain duties and obligations.

The potential for abusing personal information has prompted many countries to enact legislation in the fields of privacy and data protection. Regulation in these fields is constantly evolving.

 

Our firm helps clients analyze their situations and customizes a variety of solutions for various legal issues relating to privacy protection and data security, particularly in the fields of internet and mobile.

 

We provide our clients with comprehensive legal advice about how their operations may be subject to privacy protection laws in Israel and abroad. We also analyze all relevant business processes and explain how they are required to comply with local and international regulations.

 

Within this context, we scrutinize issues relating to the receipt, processing, utilization, and dissemination of personal information and sensitive personal information. We also work to assimilate regulatory requirements by virtue of privacy protection laws in Israel and in Europe, including the GDPR, as well as the requirements of the Israeli data security regulations.

 

In addition, we provide the following services: legal defense in spam lawsuits; database registrations; drafting of privacy policies for websites and applications; assistance in engagements with external parties involving the sharing of personal information; formulation of practical solutions for obtaining individuals’ consent to process personal information about them, wherever it is required; legal issues that arise during postal mailings, including advertisements; transfers of information between countries; and more.

 

Our firm also possesses experience in building regulatory compliance programs in the fields of privacy protection and data security. We provide ongoing assistance throughout these programs’ implementation.

 

In October 2020, Israel’s Privacy Protection Authority announced that every organization must appoint a privacy protection officer. Our firm serves as an external privacy protection officer for our clients. In this context, we regulate information processing in an organization, as well as supervise and perform controls related to the organization’s compliance with privacy protection laws. We also assist in the implementation of work processes that meet privacy protection requirements, including through training.

 

As a leading law firm in this field, over the years Barnea Jaffa Lande has accumulated unique knowledge and experience in privacy and data protection. We invite to read about  our insights on this topic in our short guide: “Handling Data: a guide for companies and startups that deal with people and collect information“.
