Our Privacy Legal Services
Privacy laws apply to just about every interaction a consumer makes when interacting with your business. In fact, if your company operates a consumer-facing website, you likely have certain obligations when directly or indirectly handling the data of any online visitor. Privacy law can also apply to employees, vendors, and other third parties with which you conduct transactions.
Our New York privacy law attorney can help your business with many areas of privacy law, including:
- Data collection disclosures. If interacting with your business’s website or other forms of digital operation require the submittal of personal information, including any data that is considered to be personally identifiable data (i.e. one’s date of birth, gender, ethnicity, name, address, and/or payment information, etc.), you must take special care to ensure the data is properly collected, secured, shared and managed. You may also have obligations to educate your customers on why the data is being collected, how it will be used and the methods available for its complete destruction or the customers “right to be forgotten.” If your website employs the use of “cookies” or other forms of data gathering, you will also likely need to alert consumers to the practice and give them the choice to opt out in instances where the law requires this option. We can help you determine which obligations apply to your business and help you draft effective notifications that help you to remain compliant.
- E-commerce transactions. When consumers facilitate purchases and other monetary transactions through a business’s digital service, the company must take steps to ensure protection of that information and avoid breaches that result in stolen financial data or identity theft. There are numerous cyber laws regulating the level of security protecting online payments and transactions. We can help you determine and navigate your compliance obligations.
- Ongoing security and privacy legal support. Federal, state, and local laws governing Internet privacy and security are constantly changing as attitudes and new Internet tools emerge. Our firm is available for outside general counsel services and can proactively advise you on the substance of the new laws, help to legally prepare for potential necessary changes to your operations and address any resulting legal issues.
