Business and privacy

GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) requires you to not only handle personal data in accordance with the law, but also to be able to demonstrate you have done so. At Watsonlaw, we help you identify the personal data you need to process and draw up the required documents. Providing you with a GDPR perspective of your business, whether your company is large or small. The moment you store your business contacts’ details on a company computer, you are processing their personal data.


Selling your business

GDPR compliancy is not just a legal requirement, it is also a must for futureproofing your company. If, in the future, you need to attract investment or you decide to sell your business, you will need to be able to demonstrate that your company handles personal data correctly. Checking for the presence of a processing register and correct processor agreements is an integral part of any due diligence now. A negative score here can place the negotiations for a business acquisition in a bad light. Without privacy documentation, your business network constitutes a liability and not the asset it should be.
