Data & Ethics Policy

Legal Utopia is a business operating in the field of technology and law, as the business attempts to create and secure a sufficiently advanced, capable and reliable computer software, there are both ethical and regulatory considerations to be made throughout.

 

 

The composition of the Company Board establishes 100+ years of experience in business and law. It shall be the Company Board’s mandate to approach, debate and consider the ethical and regulatory position as research and development is undertaken for (or by) the Company with specific emphasis on the collection and utilisation of any data.

 

 

Legal Utopia, in considering its needs, does not, nor will it seek to, procure data which can enable the Company to identify the person to whom that data relates in Our research with any other body, institution, or company without express consent. Any collection of data arising from the Company research shall be in strict compliance with the requirements of the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) and any other applicable laws. Any such system, service, product or software produced or commissioned by Legal Utopia shall be developed within the requirements of the DPA, UK GDPR, and any other applicable laws.

 

 

The Company Board shall meet quarterly to discuss the activities of the business and shall, at such time, consider the ethical implications of its decisions, actions, and omissions. Legal Utopia shall consult its Chief Legal Office and Data Protection Officer as and when appropriate throughout the course of the research and development of the business’s work.

 

 

Legal Utopia confirms that it shall fully consider the viability of any product or service with regard to the appropriate ethical and legal implications of, and prior to, any commercialisation of said product or service to the public.
