Whilst the list is non-exhaustive, CooperBurnett LLP has advised local businesses, organisations and charities on a number of legal documents in the past year, including privacy policies, terms and conditions and data processor agreements.
CooperBurnett LLP has both effectively advised businesses on their privacy policies and drafted new privacy policies during the past year.
Terms and Conditions
A business’ terms and conditions are important because they set out the contractual relationship between a business and its customers. Your business’ standard terms and conditions need regular review to ensure they take account of business changes undertaken or legislative changes.
During the past year, CooperBurnett LLP has reviewed numerous businesses’ terms and conditions to advise not only on compliance with the new data protection laws (GDPR and DPA 2018) but also other legislative changes.
Data Processor Agreements
The GDPR makes it clear that whenever a data controller (individual who determines the use of personal data) uses a data processor (individual who processes the personal data on behalf of the controller), there must be a written agreement in place. In addition, the GDPR sets out what is to be included in the agreement.
The agreement should include the subject matter of the processing, its nature and purpose, its duration, the controller’s obligations and rights, the types of personal data and the categories of data subject.
CooperBurnett LLP has also advised on the implementation of other policies, including data retention and destruction policies and social media policies and has provided advice on practical steps your business should take in order to be compliant with the GDPR and the DPA 2018.
