As companies are holding more and more personally identifiable information, privacy concerns are understandably growing. Our attorneys provide regulatory and compliance advice across the spectrum of privacy laws, including the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act, Fair Credit Reporting Act, Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, Electronic Communications Privacy Act, Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), among others. We also counsel clients on the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA), Controlling the Assault of Non-Solicited Pornography and Marketing Act (CAN-SPAM), Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and Video Privacy Protection Act (VPPA).
ZEK counsels clients regarding online advertising, marketing, and promotions as those activities relate to privacy considerations. It supports companies in designing transactions to effectively protect and utilize informational assets. The firm also provides counseling services related to industries governed by other privacy and consumer protection laws, such as the Federal Acquisition Regulation and by regulatory authorities, such as the FTC, SEC, FCC, HHS, and DHS.
The upcoming EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will impose a variety of new requirements that companies accessing the data of EU residents must follow. ZEK’s privacy team works closely with clients to help them understand the scope and applicability of the GDPR and to design compliance programs which will enable clients to meet the GDPR requirements when they take effect.
