Any commercial contract that involves a transfer of personal data between the parties needs to contain a series of clear data protection clauses.

In some cases, the basic content will be mandated by the UK GDPR but there still remains a considerable amount of flexibility for parties to negotiate the most favourable terms from their own perspectives.

This webinar reviews the key issues and allows you to review a series of clauses and consider what amendments would be appropriate from the competing perspectives of the parties.
