At the outset of this project it was clear that the advice provided needed to anticipate commercial objectives, whilst also balancing compliance needs. Tomorrow’s Guides needed to be able to continue providing its various online services, as well as generating revenue from SaaS.
To start with Clayden Law helped Tomorrow’s Guides to create a data map. This helped everyone to understand the data processes as well as the high-risk areas, in compliance terms. From this we were able to set out an action plan, working towards GDPR compliance, with practical steps and tasks.
The tasks that followed involved advising on changes to data processes, the appropriate legal basis for consent across all areas of data, as well as data retention policies. This, naturally, led on to working with Tomorrow’s Guides collaboratively, to set up new privacy policies, retention policies, data processing addendums and other relevant documents. Clayden Law also provided Tomorrow’s Guides with free access to online GDPR training videos for the whole workforce to complete.
“We were very pleased with the work that Clayden Law, and in particular Piers Clayden, completed…Not only was the advice excellent but it was utterly practical – grounded in helping us to continue working towards our commercial and strategic objectives. This level of ‘business’ and ‘IT sector’ understanding is rare in a law firm and Clayden Law’s involvement in the run up to GDPR has made a tangible difference to the way we work as a business, and the ways in which we serve the general public and commercial clients….We have no hesitation in recommending Clayden Law.”
