Date

Time
Location
Online MS TEAMS

The first Open Minded session of this academic year will take place on Friday, October 30 from 13:00 – 14:00. During this session – which will take place via MS Teams – Maja Nisevic, a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early Researcher at the University of Verona, will present her research: Profiling Consumers Through Big Data Analytics: The Interplay Between the GDPR and the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive.

Considering that the age of Big Data is underway, it is questionable whether the current European legal framework can adequately address the challenges that Big Data presents. Therefore, this presentation stresses the current research regarding profiling consumers through Big Data analytics by examining the GDPR and the Unfair Commercial Practice Directive. Special attention is directed towards gaps, barriers, and enablers, taking into account Article 22 of the GDPR and the case law regarding the Unfair Commercial Practices Directive.

Open Minded is a lecture series organized by eLaw (Center for Law and Digital Technologies), wherein professionals working in the domain of law and digital technologies are invited to present their research, perspectives, or ongoing work.

All are welcome to attend. Please send an email to a.m.sears@law.leidenuniv.nl to register.
