Information Technology,
Intellectual Policy
& Data Privacy

Non-profits are becoming increasingly technology dependent – for internal processes, program delivery, impact measurement & research surveys. The laws governing data privacy, data protection & security apply as much to social enterprises as they do to commercial enterprises. The laws in India are poised to soon match up with international standards. Social enterprises are moving towards open sourcing of intellectual property.

Pacta assists with legal good-practice measures in the areas of:
  • Website/App – privacy policy, terms of use, data protection, global licensing agreement, end-user licensing agreement based on European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Indian Information Technology Act and international good practices
  • Software as a Service (SaaS) licensing agreements, Application Programming Interfaces (API) licensing agreements and platform agreements
  • Copyrights for open source educational content/ social research reports
  • Registration of trademarks
  • Child online protection by following guidelines issued by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and UNICEF.
