Data Protection Handbook
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


The Data Protection Act 1998 has significantly affected how companies can collect and process data. The Act is still being phased in and there are several new European Directives on e-commerce that affect websites and the management of data collected there. This handbook is a valuable reference for legal practitioners requiring a comprehensive overview of the rules regarding data collection and data protection. The book approaches data protection from two angles: for law firms giving advice to companies for law firms themselves as businesses. With contributions from expert practitioners, the book is practical and easy to read.
