Data Processing Agreements and Contracts

Operating in Albania’s dynamic business landscape requires a clear understanding of data protection regulations. At Oracle Solicitors Albania, we assist all companies, both domestic and foreign, in crafting legally sound and practical data processing agreements (DPAs).

Why are DPAs crucial?

Minimize legal and financial risks: Non-compliance with Law No. 9887 “On the Protection of Personal Data” (2008) and its amendments can lead to significant fines, reputational damage, and even legal proceedings. DPAs clearly define roles and responsibilities, reducing the risk of breaches and misunderstandings.

Maintain trust with customers and partners: Demonstrating responsible data handling practices through well-structured DPAs fosters positive business relationships and enhances your brand image.

Protect sensitive information: Secure your valuable data from unauthorized access, misuse, or loss by establishing robust data security protocols within DPAs.

Our Tailored Approach:

Understanding your business: We take the time to comprehend your specific data processing activities and operational structure. This includes understanding whether you act as a data controller (determining the purpose and means of processing) or a data processor (processing data on behalf of a controller).

Addressing group complexities: For group companies operating in Albania, we navigate the complexities of intra-group data transfers, ensuring compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) when applicable.

Clear and concise agreements: We draft legally sound DPAs in English that are clear, concise, and easy to understand for all parties involved.

Alignment with Albanian law: Our lawyers possess a deep understanding of Albanian data protection regulations and ensure your DPAs are fully compliant.

Our Comprehensive Services:

Drafting and negotiating DPAs: We craft tailored agreements that address:

  • Types of personal data transferred and the purpose of processing.
  • Lawful basis for processing under Albanian law (e.g., consent, contractual necessity).
  • Robust data security measures implemented by the processor.
  • Individual rights (access, rectification, erasure, and objection) as stipulated by Albanian law.
  • Sub-processing arrangements, if applicable, ensuring appropriate safeguards.
  • Data breach notification procedures as required by the Office of Information and Data Protection Commissioner (IDP).
  • Termination clauses outlining responsible data deletion practices.


Reviewing existing agreements: We meticulously review existing DPAs to ensure alignment with evolving legal requirements.

A data processing agreement establishes a legal framework for the processing of personal data. It outlines the responsibilities and obligations of data controllers and processors, ensuring compliance with data protection regulations and protecting data subjects’ rights.

Data processing agreements are required under certain data protection laws, such as the GDPR, when a data controller engages a data processor to process personal data on its behalf. These agreements ensure that both parties comply with legal requirements.

A data processing agreement should include details of the processing activities, the purpose of processing, the types of data processed, security measures, data breach notification procedures, and the rights and responsibilities of both parties.
