DATA PROTECTION FOR TECH VENTURES AND (BIG) DATA RESEARCH PROJECTS
On January 31st 2017, sigma legal was invited by the Department of Informatics of the University of Fribourg to address questions and concerns of Tech ventures and (Big) Data Research Projects in the new EU Data Protection environment (GDPR). Our presentation focused in particular on :
- GDPR and impact for Tech Ventures: Changes to be taken into account? Impact for Tech ventures (startups, scientific projects)?
- Specificities of Research Projects: Collection and use of data for research purposes. Where is the right balance between the interests of data subjects, the freedom to innovate and the needs for tech ventures to be able to collect and use such data?
- Consent and Contracts: How contracts need to reflect that the new framework has been taken into account.
