Seeing is believing: supporting C-me with IP and GDPR

For any business, launching a new product or service is, in itself, a daunting enough prospect. But when you specialise in processing personal data, the stakes are particularly high. 

That’s why fast-growing firm C-me Colour Profiling was keen to ensure they received the best legal advice they could find as they developed a new business model for their innovative behavioural profiling tool. 

C-me Colour Profiling are based in Bath, Somerset and help people, teams and organisations to excel at what they do naturally. Their unique behavioural profiling tool creates an understanding of each person’s likely preferred way of doing things.

Sue Wilsher, company secretary and head of HR services, had this to say about our working relationship: ‘Harper James Solicitors have been an ideal partner for us as we navigate the ever-changing areas of GDPR and data protection. David Sant has been informative and reassuring as we in C-me Colour profiling work through the data protection analysis for the business model and the implications for our data protection processes and GDPR documentation.’

‘As a growing business, having easy access to trusted legal services is vital and we are extremely happy with the support we received from David and others in Harper James Solicitors. We felt David had a great understanding of our business and what we needed.

‘The broad range of services from Harper James really suits our needs. As well as the support provided by David on developing terms and conditions, Harper James have previously advised us on issues relating to intellectual property. We are now looking at getting advice from the Harper James team on creating incentive schemes for all staff and management in C-me who help us grow and make sure we retain our talent. We recommend their services to others. They are responsive, personal and professional.’

‘What clients say they love about C-me are its people, the system’s accuracy, flexibility, clarity and its ease of use,’ Sue added. ‘Clients include BBC, Princes Trust, Siemens, Shell and some 500 organisations around the UK, America, Africa Australia and Europe.’

Reflecting on the support provided by Harper James Solicitors, our commercial technology and data protection solicitor David Sant added: ‘Getting your IP strategy and GDPR compliance in order early on builds the foundations for ambitious companies like C-me Colour Profiling to scale and thrive. It’s a great feeling to give founders the legal peace of mind they need so they can focus on the business of growth.’
