Data Protection – Internet Right

SOTTO MAIOR & NAGEL ADVOGADOS offers advice on Intellectual Property and Data Protection processes, considering what is called ‘Internet Law’. Our team of lawyers is specialized in information technology so as to offer advice and resolve conflicts related to this area.

The regulatory scenario is seen as quite complex in Brazil. The Civil Framework of the Internet is a relatively recent legislation (Law No. 12.965 / 14) which is undergoing a major update. In August 2018, the General Data Protection Act (LGPD) was approved, establishing the use, protection and transfer of personal data in Brazil, both privately and publicly. The legislation is based on the General Data Protection Regulation (GPDR), rigid general data protection regulations approved by the European Union three months earlier.

The new Brazilian legislation establishes who are involved and what are their duties, responsibilities and penalties in the civil sphere. With clarity and heavy fines for non-compliance, the LGPD aims to ensure privacy and allow greater control over personal data, contributing to the development of the sector in the country. The LGPD goes into effect in February of 2020.

Our office executes compliance adequation for companies operating in Brazil and abroad, so they are in accordance with new LGPD and GDPR legal standards. Our services include:

  • Contract drafting and review
  • Internal Procedural Evaluations
  • Evaluation of development and implementation of technologies, products and services while focusing on privacy and protection of personal data – Privacy by Design.
  • Methodology adequation
  • Advisory on the implementation of the Information Security Committee for reviewing internal procedures – Data Protection Officer – as required by the LGPD.
  • Incident prevention advice, including mapping solutions and training managers, executives and employees.
