ICT, Privacy and Technology

Our lawyers and civil-law notaries engaged in IT and technology-related issues have joined forces in the IT, Privacy and Technology sector group.

Developments in IT and Technology

The world of IT and technology is evolving rapidly. Smart Industry represents the integration of advanced IT with modern production technologies, such as robotics and 3D printing in the manufacturing industry. With this new technology, production processes can be furnished more efficient, flexible, durable and customized. Thinking and working in networks, based on (customer) information and data, are central.

With the emergence of these new technologies questions arise about the protection of intellectual property and know-how, license, secure data storage, the use of big data, privacy issues etc. Also all kinds of developments in the field of "e-health" create questions in the field of privacy.
