Snapshots - Spring 2018
A roundup of key legal developments for the modern commercial lawyer.
This quarter, with GDPR D-day drawing ever closer, our snapshots include a strong focus on data protection. In particular, the Article 29 Working Party provides guidance on what can be described as the GDPR’s founding principle: consent. Not to be outdone, the ICO issues its biggest ever fine, while the UK courts uphold employer liability for employee data breaches. We finish with our ASA updates, including a ruling on Amazon’s ads inadvertently triggering orders. Enjoy!
