At CLEMENS, we have extensive experience in providing advice on data protection law issues and compliance challenges to many different industries and many types and sizes of companies and authorities. We go to great lengths to ensure that our advice is always of the highest quality but also holistic, focusing not only on the law but also on the organization's other interests.

What is data protection?

All companies and authorities process personal data to a greater or lesser extent. This could be about employees, customers, business partners, leads or visitors to a website. The data protection rules therefore apply to all companies and authorities, regardless of size and type. The data protection rules that apply in Denmark primarily originate from the EU, but a number of special rules have also been adopted in Denmark, including, among other things, regarding the use of CPR numbers and information about criminal offenses. The rules aim to ensure and regulate that companies and authorities only process personal data in a legitimate, proper, necessary and transparent manner.

How can we help with data protection?

There are many complex rules governing how organizations can process personal data. Best practice in data protection is constantly evolving, and the legislation imposes a wide range of requirements on all private companies and public authorities, which are implemented differently depending on how the company or authority is structured. Achieving a sound level of compliance in data protection is therefore not an easy exercise, but a process that requires many resources and specialized skills. Regardless of industry, CLEMENS' specialists help your company identify and gain an overview of relevant risks for your organization, as well as plan and assist in the development of data protection compliance.

CLEMENS advises in all areas of data protection law:

  • General questions about the implementation and interpretation of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the Data Protection Act
  • Gap analysis and compliance assessments
  • Risk assessments and impact assessments
  • General issues in connection with the processing of personal data processing of personal data as part of the company's operations, including e.g. in connection with marketing initiatives or the use of cookies and cookie-like technologies

Why is compliance with data protection legislation important?

Compliance is fundamentally about ensuring that the organization adheres to the law. In Denmark, the Danish Data Protection Agency ensures that private companies and public authorities comply with data protection laws. Failure to comply with data protection regulations can result in fines, lawsuits, negative publicity, commercial damage and much more.

Preventive and compliance initiatives can therefore save your organization countless costs in the long run. In addition, the right compliance measures can increase the efficiency of your organization through increased structure and understanding of internal processes and risks.
