Web and privacy law

IIn a world where technology is now the widespread engine of global change, digital transformation involves all those subjects (natural and legal persons, companies and Public Administrations) which operate with new technologies on a daily basis (such as integrated digital platforms, IoT, cloud, social media, mobile technology, internet) allowing them to share information, collaborate and innovate products and services all over the world.

However, the same technological tools can turn out to be a double-edged sword for users who rely on them, involving them in unpleasant episodes, ranging from the most common hate messages to the need for legal assistance, including the exercise of the right to be forgotten, for the removal of harmful and / or defamatory contents from the web, a practice notoriously opposed by the various search engines, up to cyberbullying, revenge porn and child pornography online.

An act of violence suffered on the web is not any less serious than an offline one: the consequences, in fact, are amplified by the so-called “centrifugal” effect of social networks and social media, where the news spread at an uncontrollable and unmanageable speed for those who are their object. In this context, internet law represents a tool of protection for the subjects that operate via internet.

The Firm assists the ones involved in the issues related to the use of the internet and new technologies, protecting their rights and providing legal advice and judicial assistance activities, particularly in the following areas:

  • E-commerce and consumer rights
  • Digital privacy and social media
  • Online copyright
  • Publishing on the web
  • Responsibility of the provider
  • Freedom of expression, digital reputation and defamation on the web.

The Firm carries out its activities in the field of compensation for damages on the web, from digital remediation for damages to web reputation (damage to the person) and brand reputation (damage to the company) and to the protection of consumers for unfair commercial practices (misleading advertising); from the protection of victims of crimes of cyberstalking and cyberbullying, abusive access to computer systems and child pornography on the web, to risk management and compliance of privacy risk with organizational models ex GDPR and the so-called Privacy Code, particularly in the field of e-health, trademark infringement and cyber plagiarism.

The Firm assists the client before the Garante per la protezione dei dati personali (Guarantor for the protection of personal data) in cases of reports and complaints pursuant to article 77 of the GDPR and applications before the competent judicial authority, as well as in cases of applications against the provisions of the Garante or claims for compensation for unlawful processing of data. Finally, once all domestic remedies under article 35 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms have been exhausted, the Firm can assist the client before the ECHR.
