Data Protection

Andersen Tax & Legal provides specialized services in compliance with national (LOPD and its development regulation) and European regulations (new regulation) as well as in the new protocol of international data transfer, the Privacy Shield or the Model Clauses, to which US-based companies that will receive data from European citizens will be required to adhere.

The novelties in regulation that will enter into force on May 2018 include penalties of up to 4% of the company’s annual turnover, being therefore crucial for all industries to adapt to this regulation with the top specialists as soon as possible. It is essential to outline the obligation imposed by the European regulation on certain companies to incorporate a Data Protection Officer (DPO) which will be frequently outsourced by most companies for cost and efficiency reasons.

After the latest amendment of the Criminal Code, this area will play an important role because of the corporate criminal liability.

Data mining, behavioral analysis of IP addresses, their locations and profiling make it possible to analyze and segment users and clients to provide them with content, products, services and advertising that are truly relevant to them in order to obtain tailor-made products based on data science in the future. The aim is clear: to monetize this asset in accordance with the best legal advice and strategy to comply with current regulations.
