Book Description: This user-friendly practitioner's guide considers how data protection and privacy law effect electronic commerce and business practice. Providing vital compliance advice for any company doing business electronically or handling information relating to individuals, this practice manual is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing useful precedents including website privacy policies, employee's code of conduct for email and internet use, data processing agreements and standard clauses for international data transfers. "E-Privacy and Online Data Protection" will answer your client's questions on: How will the Information Officer's Employment Code of Conduct affect my business? How can I minimise liability for staff misuse of email? Does my website gather data in an effective and legal way? What does 'fair and lawful processing' of data entail? How can I ensure safe and legal transfer of data outside the UK? This practical work also analyses EU Directives and how they are regulating privacy and data protection on the Internet.
