Technology and Data Privacy

Technology has been the driving force behind the Indian economy for the last two decades. After the dotcom era, tech start-ups took over their pivotal role in bringing in foreign investment and creating jobs. The Indian government brought out the Information Technology Act 2000 in order to facilitate the growth of technology and tech-related transactions and then amended it in 2008 to combat the menace of cyber-crimes. Indian lawyers who understand technology and tech-driven transactions have played a significant role in supporting the growth and development of Indian technology MNCs which have created Indian business outposts all over the world.

India has had data privacy regulations since 2011 and now a new data privacy statute, on par with GDPR, is on the anvil. Indian lawyers are poised to play an important role in interpreting the new law and assisting in its implementation.

Argus Partners has a strong technology and data privacy practice, which has both advisory and transactional components.

We advise tech companies and other corporates on data privacy laws and legal issues arising out of the migration of data across borders.

We advise (both vendors and customers) entering into outsourcing transactions by assisting in negotiating industry-standard outsourcing agreements and implementing best practices and contractual safeguards; and represent banks and other corporates who purchase software or other technology from IT vendors and assist them in documenting the terms of payment, escrow mechanisms for the object code and/or source code, the indemnities offered by the vendors and the terms of usage.
