Bird & Bird launches new and improved Cloud Computing App

Date
05 September 2015
Bird & Bird launched the third version of its Cloud Computing app today, which allows suppliers and users of cloud services to easily determine whether they are legally compliant.

The app, first developed in 2013, provides answers to frequently asked questions across 19 jurisdictions, and reviews issues of consumer protection, data protection, data portability, intellectual property, liability, security and the use of the cloud by the public sector.

Cloud computing services are inherently non-geographical, but are subject to legal rules on a country-by-country basis, which leads to complexities in understanding the legal environment. The Bird & Bird app provides clarity by answering questions on the key legal issues associated with each region.

The new and improved app features enhanced User Experience (UX) developments such as improved navigation, better legibility and compatibility for mobile and tablet.

Graeme Maguire, partner and global head of Tech & Comms, commented: “cross-jurisdictional and technology focused legal advice is at the heart of Bird & Bird. Cloud services is a rapidly evolving area, through the app we can showcase our innovative approach to meeting our clients’ needs whilst delivering up-to-date knowhow in a user-friendly format.”

The App covers a range of jurisdictions, including: Australia, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Netherlands, Poland, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Turkey, UK and the UAE. It was completed with contributions from Nikolinakos – Lardas & Partnership, BCCC Attorneys-at-law and BTS & Partners for the Greek, Swiss and Turkish sections.

The app is available to both mobile phones and tablets, and requires iOS 7.1 or Android 4.1 or later. It is available to download at the iTunes app store and Google Play.
