In the U.S., privacy lawyers frequently craft policy policies as broadly as possible in order to be on the safe side. The risk is that European regulators might look at the policy to find soft spots from their perspective, such as whether there is a legal basis for the processing.  The European interest in limiting contractual and “legitimacy” might work against such broadly drafted privacy policies.  In contrast, how are European lawyers drafting privacy policies.  Is there a middle way? This session will present different examples of privacy policy drafting and develop best practices.
