New technologies

The increasing presence of both companies and individuals in the networks has certain legal consequences which should be prevented and regulated in an appropriate way.

The Act 34/2002, of 11 July, on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce (LSSIC) requires website owners to comply with certain legal requirements, such as having at the disposal of the users and the competent bodies certain details in all the web pages published on the Internet in a permanent, free, easy and direct way. In this regard, our team of experts in the field provides the following services:

  • Auditing and adapting the website to the LSSIC as well as to the rest of the applicable regulations.
  • Drafting general conditions for online contracting.
  • Advice on setting up e-commerce platforms.
  • Advice on the right use of email with commercial purposes.

Intellectual Property in the digital domain

The new world created by the Internet has implied a dramatic change regarding trade relations. Information technologies have promoted new business models based on the exploitation of their online Intellectual Property rights. However, this also allows potential infringers to have at their disposal new ways of operating by violating legitimate owners’ rights. 

At Ballester IP, we have substantial experience with reference to the new legal challenges imposed by the Internet concerning Intellectual Property rights, from trademarks use as adwords and the way online distribution affects the exhaustion of the trademark, to intermediary service providers’ liability.

Domain Blocking and Recovery Service

In the age of the Internet, the choice and assignment of domain names by companies to identify their business is a matter of great importance, as they allow their customers access to information and products through the web.

Frequently, domain names coincide with a trademark and unfortunately, misappropriation of these names by registering different extensions is an increasing phenomenon.

At Ballester IP, we have extensive experience in both domain name protection and domain name recovery procedures.

Data protection

Privacy has gained importance in the last few years, due to the introduction and spread of new technologies. In this regard, we must bear in mind the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (GDPR), which aims to guarantee and protect public freedoms and the fundamental rights of individuals regarding the processing of personal data.

Ballester IP provides a comprehensive coverage of needs related to the management of information security; from risk analysis, audits, to compliance with data-protection regulation. Our main services in the field are:

  • Notification of creation, amendment or deletion of files containing personal data to the Data Protection Agency.
  • Drafting of privacy contracts, terms and policies
  • Drafting of security documents
  • Contracts for personal data processing
  • Terms of international data transfer
  • Advice on necessary security measures
