Data privacy and software use in Slovakia
Slovak companies involved in electronic activities which require specific software programs have to verify if they are lawfully used. The originality of the software has to be certified through a software licensing contract which has to be provided to the company`s representatives when the software is bought. Some companies in Slovakia process personal data and confidential information about their clients and employees. This data has to be properly secured against any cyber attack and avoid litigation cases due to the misuse of digitally stored information. Personal data may include any information which can lead to the identification of an individual: name, address, marital status, date of birth, financial records, medical history and ID expiry date. It is highly recommended that companies operating in Slovakia which use store and personal data conclude privacy policies stating the management of this data.
Our team of Slovak solicitors can provide you with detailed information on the matter of data security law in this country and help you draw privacy policies.
