IT and Data Protection

We advise users of Information Technology (IT) on all legal issues relating to their acquisition and use of IT.

Our team of IT lawyers provides prompt and focused advice on the issues that concern users and providers of IT services, such as software license agreements, software business and development agreements, hardware and software maintenance, computer services agreements, and back-up agreements.

Topical issues such as exercise and protection of Internet rights, e-commerce and distribution of digital contents are approached through a high level of knowledge and conceptual innovation. We advise our clients in connection with personal data protection issues and, we represent them in proceedings pending before Data Protection Authorities in both Italy and Belgium.

SQ is your one-stop shop for issues such as revision of company policies to conform personal data processing to the applicable provisions in particular sectors (public, healthcare, judiciary, journalistic, labour and social welfare, electronic communications, etc.). We provide legal assistance to conform sensitive data processing policies for special categories of data controllers. We also help ensure that data processing modalities adhere to the sector’s deontological codes (information services providers, employment management, direct marketing, etc.).
