Privacy considerations in buying and selling businesses: An Australian perspective.

Buying and selling a business is often an exciting and busy time - negotiating the price, deciding on the best structure, negotiating the assets to be transferred, dealing with employee entitlements, arranging finance, managing stakeholders, writing media releases etc… all with a looming closing deadline…

But where does privacy and data protection fit into this?

Many vendors and purchasers of Australian businesses will be captured by the Australian Privacy Act, and will have to comply with the Australian Privacy Principles (APPs), including before the sale/purchase, as part of the due diligence process, and on an ongoing basis post-completion.

  • What types of transactions are captured vs not?
  • - What personal information can be shared between vendors and purchasers?
  • - What practical steps can vendors and purchasers take?

Join Kelly Dickson, the Managing Principal Lawyer of Macpherson Kelley’s Dandenong (Victoria, Australia) office, to hear an Australian perspective, as part of your coffeebreak.

Parallel competences of DPAs: Who to notify if a personal data breach has occurred across the EU?

Today, it can easily happen that a data protection breach involves data processing in several Member States parallelly and data subjects resident in several Member States. This can be imagined, for example, in the case of webshops, cross-border services or various processes that involve different data controllers and processors.

If a data protection incident is so serious that it needs to be reported to an authority, the question arises of which authority should be notified?

Two concepts in the GDPR help us with this, one is the supervisory authority, the other is the lead supervisory authority.

The reason for the distinction between a "simple" supervisory authority and a "lead" supervisory authority is that the GDPR has intended to create an "one-stop-shop" procedure for cross-border data processing in order to avoid parallel and competing procedures being conducted by different Member State authorities.

Watch this PrivacyEspresso with Aleksej Dubalár from the Hungarian law firm Lakatos Koves to clarify these concepts and to understand which authority you should notify in a cross country case.

The UK’s Adequacy Decision – the End of the Story?

The UK has finally been issued with an Adequacy Decision by the European Commission – confirmation that the UK’s data privacy laws provide an essentially equivalent level of protection to personal data as those in the EU, of which the UK is no longer a member. This is of huge importance to UK business – it has been estimated that the costs of no adequacy decision would have been £1.6 billion in compliance costs, let alone the indirect costs of disruption to data flows.

So why has it taken so long? What were the EU’s concerns? And how have they been overcome (if indeed they have)? Is the US entitled to feel that double standards are being applied? What will Maximilian Schrems be making of all this? How will it end?

Kim Walker, Partner in the UK law firm Shakespeare Martineau, will discuss this in this privacy espresso!

Privacy espresso, ep.12: GDPR obligations on data breach notification and recent fines in Poland

After almost 3 years with General Data Protection Regulation, there is still big uncertainty among businesses regarding its particular obligations in case of a data breach. Under the GDPR, any incident resulting in the destruction, loss, alteration or disclosure of personal data is a data breach and its occurrence triggers the controller’s obligation to examine the breach and, in some cases, to notify Data Protection Authority (DPA) and inform data subjects whose personal data the breach concerned. In case the breach poses risks to data subjects (of a monetary loss or physical harm) the controller is obliged to notify the DPA within 72 hours. In addition, in case the risks identified by the controller are particularly high, it is also necessary to inform the data subjects.

Recently Polish DPA issued decisions regarding the data breach notifications which were quite controversial. As an example, in one of the cases the scale of the breach was quite insignificant (mail send by mistake to wrong receiver). The company identified the incident as data breach, however, with no risk to data subject identified, it decided not to notify the DPA. The conclusion reached by the DPA (after the proceeding initiated by the e-mail receiver) was different – it found that not only the breach posed risk to data subjects but that the risk was high and that also the data subject should have been notified.

During the espresso, our Polish expert, Karolina Miksa from WKB lawyers in Poland, will provide more details about the Polish cases and discuss, if, to avoid sanctions, the companies should consider to notify any data breaches to the DPA.

Privacy espresso, ep. 7: Uncertainty over cross border data transfers – what now?

Under a very recent study conducted by the Association of Compliance Officers in Ireland (ACOI), released on January 28th, 76% of Irish businesses believe the data protection landscape is more uncertainty now than it was 12 months ago, due to 3 main reasons: Brexit, the increase in remote working and the impact of the Schrems II ruling.

As to such last reason, in July, the Court of Justice of the European Union (CJEU) issued a landmark ruling in the Schrems II case, when invalidating the EU-US Privacy Shield arrangement and raising questions over the level of data protection offered for those relying on Standard Contract Clauses (SCCs) when transferring data from the European Economic Area (EEA) to a third country.

Companies from all over the world are now concerned whether the existing mechanisms in place allowing for cross border transfers outside the EEA (such as to entities pertaining to the same corporate group located in other countries) remain valid.

Due to additional factors, businesses in all countries are disoriented when it comes to the applicable mechanisms to transfer personal data overseas. In Brazil, for instance, we have a brand new Data Protection Law (the LGPD) -- now finally in force and effect -- that sets forth rigid instruments to allow for cross border data transfers, analogous to the ones provided by the GDPR, without a fully operational Data Protection Authority that should take actions to enable such instruments.

Certain cross border mechanisms can be considered onerous and unworkable and the companies should evaluate the adequate proceedings to be adopted. We should also not lose sight of the fact that maintaining a strong data protection culture within the corporate group is a key factor for compliance with the applicable data protection rules, including the ones covering cross border data transfers.

Privacy Espresso, ep. 2 - Key privacy and cybersecurity factors within the employment relationship

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD): We're seeing a lot of company policies encouraging employees to "bring your own devices" (smartphones, laptops and tablets). The thinking is that if employees get to use devices they're familiar with and happy with, then you'll be able to recruit and keep happy workers. There are cost savings (from the company not buying devices) and supposedly increased productivity. But...

- during the employment relationship or at termination, it's hard/impossible to get access to employee-owned devices to confirm misappropriation of trade secrets;

- such devices are loaded with personal data -- financial data on taxes and investments, family or other personal photos, videos, etc. - greater likelihood of friends, family members, etc. borrowing or using a personal device and thus exposed to company information.

- some security solutions like keystroke/keylogging software really are bad mojo to try sneaking onto a person's personal device.

- lack of separation between work and home devices also opens up more potential opportunity to malware that can cause bigger problems re: hackers and breaches.

Privacy espresso series - The do's and don'ts of employer-conducted control measures in Norway

With the ever-increasing presence of technology in the workplace and the risks associated with the use of digital tools, information sharing and employees working from home, control measures in Norway are on the rise. Such, measures, ranging from access controls to GPS tracking, are subject to the GDPR as incorporated into the Norwegian Personal Data Act. Furthermore, the Norwegian Working Environment Act and its appurtenant regulations impose several procedural obligations on employers wishing to implement control measures in the workplace. Failure to comply with these obligations could not only expose the employer to potential liability and loss of reputation, but also render any evidence gathered through the measure inadmissible before the Norwegian courts.

Our Norwegian expert, Alexander Mollan from Brækhus Advokatfirma DA, delves into this complicated patchwork of laws in order to provide you with some practical tips on how to avoid any risk dealing with this sector.

The Russian data protection law: Is there a risk for non-compliance during the pandemic?

PrivacyRules local expert, Sergey Medvedev from Gorodissky & Partners, elaborates on the risks related to the non-compliance with the Russian data privacy law in these complex times.

You may wonder if the Russian data protection law must be complied with even during the Covid-19 times, the answer is yes! Beware that the Russian data protection law has been recently amended giving higher powers to the Russian IT Regulator (Roskomnadzor) which can now impose truly heavy fines against non-compliant companies. Worth noting, the Roskomnadzor can now start random inspections and, if the inspection reveals that a company is non-compliant, the Regulator can initiate an administrative proceeding before the competent Court without the need of a prosecutor.

The sanctions can be of civil, administrative or criminal nature. An example of a heavy sanction is the blockage of the website for an online business or an e-commerce company (which is what happened in the LinkedIn case). Furthermore, in certain cases fines are imposed on the basis of the number of the employees the sanctioned company has.

To know more about the risks related to the complexity of the Russian privacy regulations, watch this video and contact Sergey for guidance and advice!

Flash News from Indonesia “Whether Covid-19 can be considered as force majeure or not?”

The President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, issued a Presidential Decree No. 12/2020 declaring Covid-19 pandemic as a Public Health Emergency situation. Then, the Government has released Regulation No. 21 of 2020 on Massive Social Restrictions (“GR 21/2020) allowing the Regional Government to implement Massive Social Restrictions.

On April 09, 2020, the Governor of DKI Jakarta has issued Regulation No. 33/2020 on Implementation of Massive Social Restrictions in Jakarta.

In this pandemic situation many business activities are disrupted and stop operating. For this reason, they are assessing their existing contracts to determine whether the pandemic of Covid-19 can be considered as force majeure or not.

Our Indonesian expert from SIP Law Firm , R. Yudha T. W., elaborates on the recent updates of its country and explains how Indonesia is handling the concept of force majeure.

The Morrisons case: When is an employer liable for data breaches by its employees?

The Morrisons case: When is an employer liable for data breaches by its employees?

❗Flash Briefing from the UK❗

Kim Walker of Shakespeare Martineau discusses the UK Supreme Court’s important recent judgement clarifying the scope of the principle of “vicarious liability”: when is an employer strictly liable for the wrongdoings of its employees even though the employer is entirely blameless?

➡️ The case is of particular interest to anyone advising on dataprotection, because the employee, in this case, had maliciously and wrongfully uploaded payroll data of 100,000 employees to the internet, potentially exposing Morrisons to huge claims for compensation from the employees involved.

➡️ The High Court and the Court of Appeal in the UK had previously found Morrisons vicariously liable for the rogue employee’s actions.

The discussion includes:

❓How do you decide what an employee’s “field of activities” are?

❓When is the wrongful action “closely connected” to the field of activities?

❓Are the employee’s motives relevant?

❓Why was the previous leading case (Mohamud v Morrisons) different?

❓What are the practical implications in the field of data protection?

Privacy and politics: The AggregateIQ case - Implications for digital advertisers and data processors in Canada and a comparison to the UK ICO’s case under the GDPR

Lyndsay Wasser of Canadian law firm McMillan and Kim Walker of UK law firm Shakespeare Martineau discuss the recent decision by the Privacy Commissioners in Canada that Canadian data analytics company AggregateIQ used voter personal data to target political advertising in breach of Canadian federal and provincial data protection laws. The UK's Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) ruled in 2018 that AggregateIQ failed to comply with the GDPR in several respects when it provided data analytics services to political parties during the UK's EU referendum in 2016. The decisions are evidence of global privacy regulators' continuing concern about the way in which personal information can be used for voter manipulation.

Lyndsay discusses the Commissioners' clarification of the requirement for service providers to ensure that customers who provide personal data for them to process have received consents from individuals as required by Canadian law and the steps that they are required to take in order to verify that adequate consents have in fact been obtained. Kim discusses the different approach taken by the ICO under the GDPR where consent is only one of several lawful bases for processing data and discusses the ICO's particular focus on AggregateIQ's failure to process the data fairly and transparently, so the individuals had no knowledge or expectation of how their data would be used.

Lyndsay and Kim then draw conclusions from the two decisions and propose practical steps for businesses to take, particularly those involved in digital marketing and the adtech industry.
