Beyond that we provide:

  • Advice on the fulfilment of information obligations under Art. 12, 13, 14 GDPR

The cost for an appoint­ment as ex­ternal data pro­tection officer depends, among other things, on the following factors:

  • Previous data protection organisation

We can discuss all this in a non-binding meeting, which then serves as the basis for the preparation of an offer.
