David Curtis provides privacy and security guidance to technology-led companies, from start-ups to multinationals.

David drafts and negotiates data licenses and other commercial contracts in which privacy and security issues are a key concern. In addition, he regularly advises clients on privacy policies, website terms and conditions and data processing agreements.
