The protection of personal data, the confidentiality of letters and other means of communication, is not regulated entirely and in a decisive manner by national legislation, even though it is a constitutional category.

This right is acknowledged and protected by the most important international instruments for human rights protection, starting with the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the European Social Charter, the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, the International Covenant on Civil and Political rights, the Council of Europe Convention on the protection of individuals with regard to automatic processing of personal data, Directive 95/46/EC of the European Parliament and the Council on the protection of individuals with regard to personal data processing and the free transfer of such data and others.

Because successful management is unthinkable in modern times without the daily collection of large amounts of personal data, every organization needs to establish an efficient, safe and legal system of collected data processing, and to eliminate the risk of any damage or detrimental impact on the business reputation of the company.

Our team has gained extensive knowledge and experience in this demanding and delicate area and is able to provide complete support to clients, regardless of whether it is within a necessary short-term crisis management, pointing to permissible means of sensitive data processing, a general program of database management or the presentation of databases abroad.
