Why Priviness?

We passionately believe in the right to privacy. We believe you have the right to control your own personal data and freely choose how that personal data is processed, by whom and why. We fundamentally believe it is incumbent on every organisation that processes personal data to:

  • Be transparent about how and why they process personal data
  • Process personal data only when it is necessary and lawful
  • Limit the collection of personal data to that which is required
  • Store personal data only as long as it is needed
  • Use personal data only for the purpose for which it was given
  • Keep personal data accurate and up-to-date
  • Put in place adequate measures to safeguard personal data
  • Protect the rights, freedoms and interests of the person behind the data
  • Demonstrate accountability for every aspect of data processing

What privacy and data protection obligations does my organisation have?

More than you think

The GDPR is just one example in a wave of global legislation designed to protect the rights and freedoms of individuals that you interact with – starting with your employees, students, consumers, subscribers, users, members, voters… too many categories to list! Individuals who work for your suppliers and business customers also have privacy-related rights. The legislation is complex and ignorance of the law is not a defence.

Board Compliance

“We want people to trust us when it comes to their personal data – how can we show visitors to our website that we respect their personal data?”


“What conditions does my company need to satisfy in order to operate legally in the EU? How do I prove that data is adequately safeguarded?”

Human Resources

“If it’s true that the vast majority of data breaches are down to human error – what can we do to change the behaviour of staff?”


“I heard 95% of my legally-binding contracts with suppliers and customers are now unlawful. What can I do about this?”

Digital Marketing

“Do I need consent to email customers? And what’s the correct way to inform people about cookies?”
