Call Recordings and Data Protection 2018 – GDPR & national legislation

February 27, 2018

This conduct is obvious in the case of certain companies and public services providers who fall under the scope of special laws since statutory law provides the legal basis for their mandatory data management.

What about those companies who fall outside this circle but find call recordings important anyway? What to pay special attention to when obtaining the client’s consent? Details are available in our blog entry. If you are interested in this topic please contact us for more information in English.
