Profile

Uwe Schneider advises enterprises and public institutions seeking legal security for the development, distribution and use of information and communications technology. In doing so he combines a profound understanding of technical and business matters with legal expertise. His clients include software companies, other IT and telecommunications providers as well as users of such services. Uwe Schneider draws up various contracts for these enterprises, also on IT outsourcing and the provision of software. He represents his clients’ interests when drafting standard terms and conditions, also in a B2C environment, when negotiating individual agreements in B2B transactions, and in legal disputes, if necessary in court.

Uwe Schneider also focuses on compliance requirements where IT is in use, especially but not only with regard to data privacy protection. He advises on lawful IT architectures and transaction processes such as those entailed by licence management. Uwe Schneider has particular expertise regarding the legal issues entailed by networked IT deployment within the health system (“e-health”). He assists health IT providers and their users, no matter whether medical services providers, research institutions or cost centres, e.g. about the use of treatment data, tele-medically integrated health care schemes and health apps.

Uwe Schneider has been an (external) data protection ombudsman since 2001. He originally read law at Tübingen University, where he completed his doctorate on cross-institutional electronic patients’ files alongside his professional commitments.
