Privacy and Data Protection

In recent years, these two overlapping areas of law have become increasingly important.

They arise in many contexts ranging from the rights of an individual to take control of his/her personal data to the question of how far celebrities are entitled to privacy to the use of cookies on websites to track user behaviour.

A tangled mesh of legislation and regulations is involved; notably the Data Protection Act, the Freedom of Information Act, the Human Rights Act and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations (e-privacy Regulations).

We advise on a wide range of issues such as data capture, cookies and privacy policies.

If you have concerns, we can advise you on where you stand and what you should do.
