Why PrivacyCloud?

We combine a cross-border legal background with Privacy Engineering know-how and hands-on subject matter expertise in Marketing Technology, Analytics & AI, eCommerce and AdTech. We can offer ad hoc or ongoing support to large and small organizations, easily complementing their existing privacy compliance and product development capabilities.

Digital strategy

We boast two decades of experience rolling out enterprise-level eCommerce, Digital Analytics and Marketing Technology solutions, having been exposed to SaaS (Software as a Service), IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service), or PaaS (Platform as a Service) since their inception, and adding to them advanced statistics and Machine Learning capabilities for the past seven years.

privacy engineering

Our more technical team members share a combined background in mathematics and computer science that has proven ideal for the application of the more widely-established PETs: Differential Privacy, Federated Learning, De-identification, Homomorphic Encryption, Multi-party Computation, and Trusted Execution Environments. This has been complemented by the extraordinary capabilities of both our external advisors and business partners, with particular emphasis in Local-Processing solutions and Trustworthy AI.

Comparative law

Both our CEO and two of our external advisors are dual-admitted lawyers with a background evenly split across three or more jurisdictions, in all cases narrowly focused on ePrivacy and Internet law. This has given us a unique advantage when it comes to appreciating the underlying differences (and commonalities) between the EU legal framework (ePrivacy Directive, GDPR, Digital Services Act, upcoming AI Act, etc.), US state-level or federal laws (CPRA, VCDPA, CPA, COPPA, etc.) and other country-specific frameworks partly inspired by some of the above.
