IT and Internet law, data protection law

Your online presence is your digital business card, while your custom-made software is your digital production system – and both are indispensable in this day and age. Since these two elements are cross-cutting issues in each case, the elaboration of corresponding agreements requires a great deal of judicial know-how to attend to and safeguard your interests. In this context, data protection law is becoming increasingly important, while compliance under data protection law is not only a legal requirement, but also an economic necessity.

IT and Software

Besides technical expertise, IT and software projects also require equally sound legal assistance. This ensures structured handling of the project, regulates the distribution of responsibilities and competences and makes a key contribution to the success of your project while avoiding legal disputes.

We provide you with advice, in particular, on:

  • the preparation of IT, software and web design agreements, including cloud computing;
  • the protection or exploitation of your IT and software projects.

Internet Law

The Internet is having a continuously increasing influence on our life and our way of life. But ‘the internet law’ does not exist; it is rather a large number of different legal matters, in particular copyright law, e-commerce law and data protection law, which is playing a role in the online sector and within the scope of IT projects.

We provide you with advice, in particular, on:

  • the review and design of your internet presence, especially in the fields of social media, blogs and influencer marketing;
  • the enforcement of your own claims or the defence against third-party claims, especially in domain-related disputes.

Data Protection

Data protection law plays a key role not only on the internet: it always becomes applicable whenever data is processed. In this context, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) poses new challenges for companies.

We assist you, in particular:

  • in the preparation of declarations of consent under data protection law;
  • in data protection audits, including data protection impact assessment and the training of your employees, especially of the data protection officer.
