-Airline company, Sr. Manager Data Protection & CPO

We have been using Legal Summaries for some time now and when the Counsel needed information, we were able to obtain it in 30 minutes. All assumptions were thereby validated and verified with these summaries as a result of which, we were able to get all the information very quickly. Legal Summaries placed us exactly where we needed to be for a very productive discussion with Counsel.

-Non Profit Institute, Privacy Leader

I approached TrustArc for global compliance needs starting with a request for an introduction of the GDPR. We subscribed to the full suite of products, including the Legal Summaries module. We used snapshots of the materials to help build awareness globally within our organization. So often, we saved so much time and money with the ability to download and modify TrustArc’s reports to support the business on new initiatives.
