Data privacy

DZP is one of only a handful of law firms in Poland having a specialist Data Privacy Team.

Our Data Privacy Team experts have extensive experience gained over the 20 years since personal data protection rules were introduced in Poland in 1997. The team head, Dr Bartosz Marcinkowski, also deals with data protection topics academically and has gained a doctorate in the field.

Our lawyers closely monitor legislation and developing data protection practice in Poland, the European Union and non-EU countries. They have also participated in creating best data protection practices (e.g. codes for the medical, automotive and financial sectors) and taken part in the public debate over personal data protection in Poland.

DZP's Data Privacy Team is one of the first in Poland to offer advice on implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The team advises leading domestic and foreign businesses in the following sectors:

  • banking and finance,
  • automotive,
  • pharmaceutical,
  • mail order and indirect marketing,
  • FMCG,
  • tourism and hotel trade,
  • energy and fuels.

The Data Privacy Team has experience in:

  • GDPR implementation projects – at both national and international level;
  • pre- and post-implementation audits (gap analysis) as regards personal data controllers and processors;
  • providing full-range advice on implementing personal data protection solutions (e.g. facial recognition, biometrics and whistleblowing systems);
  • identifying legal grounds for data transfers in capital groups, mainly outside the EEA;
  • assistance with and representation in proceedings (audits, administrative proceedings);
  • data privacy compliance projects.

DZP cooperates on GDPR projects with IT/technology sector leaders to provide clients with a full-range implementation service.
