We would like to highlight, among these new rights incorporated, the right of portability in Law Firms, due to the great practical relevance it acquires nowadays.
Regulation (EU) No. 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data introduces new rights in addition to the already known ARCO Rights.
What is the Right to portability?
It can be said to be an expanded version of the right of access that allows the data subject to obtain a copy of his or her personal data in a structured and commonly used electronic format. Subsequently, such data may be transferred from one electronic processing system to another, as well as other information you have provided.
It is a right subject to the criterion of gratuitousness due to the intimate relationship it has with data protection, except in those cases in which the requests are obviously excessive.
What impact does it have in practice?
It is a right that is clearly linked to the idea of disposition and control over personal data. In this sense, all automated data may be subject to portability.
Therefore, portability favors the free flow of personal data throughout the European Union, which translates into greater competition among service providers that the user can offer.
Problems posed in practice to independent lawyers and how LAWYOU helps you to solve them.
Despite the many benefits that portability brings to data transmission, it also brings with it certain security issues, especially in cases where the client changes lawyers or when the professional refers the matter to a colleague.
Nowadays, due to the importance of data security as a consequence of the large amount of information handled in the field of Justice, from LAWYOU we consider of vital importance for the durability of the Firm to strengthen the right of data portability, providing them with adequate security measures to achieve greater efficiency in the automation and protection of the same.
In order to combat competition, independent lawyers must work to differentiate themselves and improve the client experience. So, from LAWYOU we want to help you to be prepared to take on challenges like this and many more.
