Data Processing Agreements (DPAs) are required where personal data is processed on behalf of another company, which is the case in almost all SaaS solutions and in many other tech fields. This is especially important with the EU-GDPR and upcoming Swiss FDPA. Companies often encounter larger corporations as clients or partners and are not able to use their own standard DPA. We support you with DPA review and negotiation, so you’re aware of the risks and know what to pay attention to before signing.
Assess potential risks of the DPA, especially in times of the EU GDPR and upcoming Swiss FDPA (Federal Act on Data Protection) in order to decide whether and how to mitigate them. The worst thing you can do is to sign a DPA without knowing the risks.
Make sure that what you want to achieve with the deal is possible with the underlying DPA. At the same time make sure to protect your valuable assets.
We’ll point out whether your specific DPA reflects the market standard for this type of transaction and whether there are areas for possible improvement.
Clarifications and clearly defined terms before signing a DPA will save you additional legal challenges, conflicts, and costs further down the line.

Within minutes, the intelligent system compares your DPA to thousands of other DPAs (especially with regards to the EU-GDPR and upcoming Swiss FDPA). it has been trained with and highlights the biggest risks and red flags as well as general improvement potential.

Based on their know-how from working with hundreds of tech firms on a daily basis, they derive recommendations specifically tailored to your field and company case, which they will then explain and discuss with you in a personal call or meeting.
