Legislation updates for 2018


Following on from our popular Legal Forum earlier in the year which started to look at the impacts of GDPR, we are delighted to schedule a follow-up session to assess further developments, asses how updated guidance from the ICO might impact earlier assumptions and to facilitate discussions with fellow attendee’s; now we have all had a better opportunity to see how the new rules will impact our business.

In addition, we will also be discussing:

  1. Latest developments on the Privacy and electronic communications regulations (PeCR), which are scheduled for launch on the same day as GDPR – this is the ‘cookie law’ which will impact consent and digital marketing.

  2. The EU’s plans around geo-blocking: “New powers for national authorities to check whether e-commerce websites geoblock consumers, track down rogue traders or even order that websites hosting scams be shut down”.

  3. Implications of GDPR on vendor management and relationships.

Experts from Bond Dickinson will be providing insight and you will have the opportunity to discuss the challenges with your peers. You will leave the workshop with actionable insight that you can take back to your business.

Open to retailers, with focus on in-house legal teams, the event will run between 09:00 and 13:00 and is held in Central London. 

If you are not directly involved in the legal decisions with in your business, please forward this to a relevant colleague and they are welcome to join us.

GDPR impacts many different areas of retailing and some of the changes will impact how you interact and sell to customers. Others represent a major change in managing risk and exposure should a business suffer from a data breach.
