Privacy by design

Regardless of whether your operations relate to the online advertising sector, the provision of technology services, the healthcare sector, the telecommunications sector or some other branch of industry, there is growing demand for compliance with data protection legislation on the part of consumers and data protection agencies. In addition to German law (e.g. the BDSG), regard must also be had to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), as well as numerous national initiatives or sector-specific self-regulatory measures.

As a data protection specialist for the Internet and mobile sectors, ePrivacy, in addition to auditing and certifying digital products and services, also provides sector-specific consulting services, such as the provision of assistance in the product development context with regard to the design of new and innovative product offerings in compliance with data protection legislation.

What are the benefits to you of obtaining advice from ePrivacy on data protection issues?

  • As a product developer, you will be able to better manage your development processes and to dispense with the need for any subsequent amendments in line with data protection regulations.
  • Data breaches and the associated subsequent financial losses and loss of reputation can be avoided.
  • In the context of the use of company apps, you will be able to identify any areas of weakness in the programming at an early stage and rectify these well ahead of the market launch. 
  • Your compliance with the relevant legislation will be assured – even in the case of an extension of your business activities to other countries in which other data protection regulations apply –, as will your satisfaction of the requirements currently imposed by the relevant data protection agencies.
  • You can use these as a means of a preparatory step towards obtaining certification, ensuring that minimal effort is involved in the actual certification process.
