Data Protection Update seminar


Date: 15 September 2010


Bird & Bird is delighted to invite you to its Data Protection Update seminar on Wednesday 15 September 2010 from 2.45pm in our offices at 15 Fetter Lane, London, EC4A 1JP.

We are delighted that Iain Bourne from the Information Commissioner's Office, and the author of the ICO's new Online Code of Practice, will be joining us to talk about the Code, the Article 29 Working Party paper on behavioural advertising and other online issues and that Dustin St Clair, Senior Legal Counsel from Yahoo! will present on how Yahoo! uses these techniques and Yahoo!'s perspective on these developments.

We will also be looking at what freedom of information cases on personal data can teach about what personal data is and how it can be fairly used and at prospects for legislative change at UK and EU level.

We hope you will be able to join us.

For further information, or to register to attend this seminar please contact the Events Team at events@twobirds.com or call +44 (0)20 7415 6000.
