    Total Compliance recognises the significance of anti-money laundering regulations in the modern business world. We regularly advise our clients on the UK legislation in this area (including the Proceeds of Crime Act 2005 and the Money Laundering Regulations) and the implications of any breach.

We can help formulate appropriate policies in this area and provide training for businesses and their employees.

  • Manufacturing & Supply

    Total Compliance recognises that trade secrets and confidential information are crucial to the success our clients’ businesses, especially where they are operating in competitive markets. This information might be manufacturing data, marketing plans or computer codes. We are able to provide advice to our clients on how best to protect such information and prevent it from being leaked to competitors. In the event that it already has been, we will suggest measures that can be taken and help rapidly implement them.

  • Consultancy & Outsourcing Agreements

    Our team regularly provides advice to clients on a range of issues related to Consultancy and Outsourcing Agreements. We understand the value that consultants can bring to a business and the benefits they offer in terms of saving money and time and increasing productivity. However, there are many issues to be considered when drafting such agreements, including confidentiality, protection of intellectual property, non-disclosure clauses and service levels. We take all such issues into account and ensure that any Consultancy or Outsourcing Agreement is tailored to meet your specific requirements and is drafted to your advantage.

  • Data Protection Basics

    We guide start-ups through the basics of data protection rules and requirements, including assisting with the formal notification process of regulators. We also help them identify personal data flows and the purposes for which they can process that data and then obtain appropriate consents for such processing.

  • Internal Processes and Procedures

    We help our clients develop policies and procedures that cover the necessary regulatory requirements and safeguard the confidentiality and security of their data, but still allow their businesses to operate effectively. Our experience includes developing and implementing acceptable usage policies for the use of e-mails and other IT systems.

  • Advising Controllers and Processors

    We work with clients along the data usage chain, whether they are controllers taking responsibility for processing or processors providing data services to others. We establish roles and responsibilities and put in place the appropriate documentation and contractual commitments.

  • Conducting Privacy Audits

    We provide reviews of the data protection status of businesses and run thorough compliance audits. This generates practical advice on how to improve governance and responsibility, policies and procedures, performance measurement controls, training and awareness, and reporting mechanisms.

  • Internet and data protection

    Total Compliance has particular experience in the privacy and data protection challenges which clients face from all aspects of trading and communicating with customers and contacts online. This includes email marketing and the various consent scenarios for opting in and out, the writing and implementing of website privacy policies, and the practical responses to online security threats.

  • Risk Management

    Companies need practical and effective security measures to safeguard confidentiality and privacy. We provide advice and support on technical measures, from the encryption of data and integrity of systems and communications, to operational and organisational measures. This includes staff management and training.

  • Cookies

    The use of cookies is regulated by the new European Union rules and requires local implementation and enforcement. We help our clients understand the employment of cookies and similar technologies by assisting on internal reviews. We identify and audit cookie usage, establishing how the new rules apply on a case-by-case basis. Finally, we develop appropriate cookie policies and tailored consent mechanisms.

  • Data Trading and Transfers

    Total Compliance has experience with the trading and licensing of databases and data lists in compliance with relevant data protection, e-marketing and intellectual property requirements. We advise our clients on international data flows and the relevant options for ensuring adequacy under EU and other data controls.

  • Unauthorised Disclosures

    We advise and support clients with specialist crisis management to respond effectively and efficiently when a breach of security, data loss or other unauthorized disclosure occurs. This includes those arising from theft, deliberate systems attack, accidental loss, or equipment failure. Regardless of the particular circumstances, we can help manage the incident appropriately and prevent a reoccurrence.

  • Trade Mark, Design & Domain Registration

    We register trademarks, designs and domain names in the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. We conduct full clearance searches and provide strategic advice to protect your brand.

  • Patent Filing & Prosecution

    We prepare and file UK, European and worldwide patent applications. These include conducting pre-filing searches, drafting patent specifications and prosecuting applications as well as providing grant, infringement and validity advice.

  • Management Services

    We provide strategic trademark, design and patent portfolio management including the handling of formalities, worldwide renewals and the policing of your IP against misuse.

  • White Label Software Agreements

    If you provide software solutions that you wish to license to others, we can draft the necessary contracts. These could be for manufacturing agreements, software agreements, etc. We will also ensure that your IP is still protected, even though your processes may be integrated with those of the other party. All controversial points regarding ownership of databases and exit procedures will be firmly and advantageously negotiated.

  • IT and Digital Media Rights

    If you are instructing consultants to develop software, it is important to safeguard that you remain the sole owner of the end product. Total Compliance can conduct an audit of your internal and external contracts to ensure that your IP is being adequately protected.

  • Classification

    We can assist you with the classification of your games with the Entertainment Software Rating Board, British Board of Film Classification and Pan European Game Information System.

  • Data Compliance

    We will guide your company through compliance with local laws on data processing, including data transfer outside of the European Economic Area (EEA). We are also able to independently assess your policies and working methods to minimise any breaches of data protection laws. When you receive payments from your users, you will need to consider what credit/debit card information your website collects. We will assist you to meet all necessary standards with respect to the Payment Card Industry (PCI).

  • Advice on Advertising and Promotion of Games Campaigns

    The advertising of computer games needs to comply with local laws and industry guidelines, including the CAP/BCAP. Members of the Pan European Game Information System are required to subscribe to the PEGI Code of Conduct. We will help ensure the advertising of your games is targeting appropriate age groups and that you are aware of the legal limitations of in-game and virtual world advertising.

  • IP Registrations: Trademark, Design and Patents

    Computer games are a combination of different Intellectual Property rights that include the designs of the characters, the copyright of the software, and the trademark of the brand name. We assist companies with the trademark registration of the brands used within a game, the design registration and copyright registration (US exclusive) of the ‘look and feel’ of a game and its in-game characters. For innovative games, we are able to review the patentability of technology and software, and assist, wherever possible, with the prosecution of international applications. We also provide patent search services and support during the software development process, to reduce the risk of patent infringement.

  • Licensing In and Out and Publication

    Part of the process of increasing your game’s potential revenue streams is to ensure it is adequately licensed across different formats in various territories and markets. We can assist you with the licensing of your software to third parties and the production of distribution agreements. Conversely, we can support your acquisition of licences for in-game use of third party trademarks and copyrights.

  • Agreements

    We can draft all necessary contracts to protect your valuable Intellectual Property, especially during the software development process, which might require outsourcing. In the highly competitive online market, any website ‘downtime’ can have lasting negative effects on your business. We will ensure your online game is provided with reliable hosting and consistent on-going support by negotiating the best and most comprehensive Service Level Agreements. The contractual relationship with your users is an important part of protecting your product and business. It also helps to manage expectations. We will therefore assist with the production of End User Licence Agreements and Terms of Use.

  • Electronic Money

    If you provide virtual currencies to your users, or exchange virtual currencies, then you need to consider whether you fall under the Electronic Money Regulations 2011. We will review your business and assess your compliance with the Regulations and aid you in the authorisation process.

  • System Guidance

    The sale of virtual goods between players can present money laundering and financial fraud risks. We can help you put in place both technical systems and policies to mitigate them.

  • Buying and Selling a Website

    A website is an asset. Purchasing one requires a fair assessment of its value through proper due diligence. We will walk you through every step of this process from negotiating the heads of terms, to producing the agreement and facilitating the sale.

  • Online Intellectual Property

    We can help you register trademarks to protect your website, brand name and logo, even if your business is strictly online with a worldwide customer base. We can also prepare a usage policy for your website and provide you with the technology to monitor your brand, logo, text and images to identify any imitators. For novel websites, we can review the patentability of their underlying technologies.

  • Setting Up a Website

    A website is a composition of many elements including copywriting, graphics, software development, usability, marketing and e-commerce. Understanding how to combine these elements to maximum advantage can be a daunting process. We can put you in contact with the right people to do just that, and produce the contracts necessary to ensure your website is built on a solid and enduring foundation. In addition, we can ensure that any intellectual property is protected through trademark and design registrations.

  • Data Protection and Privacy Policies

    The key to effective marketing is extensive data collection and thorough knowledge of your customer base. However, data protection laws are extensive. For example, recently passed ‘cookies laws’ require websites to obtain express consent from users to employ cookies. Data processing also necessitates careful consideration. If you process sensitive data, you need to be aware of the particular requirements of doing so. The first step is to consider whether you need to notify the Information Commissioner regarding this activity. At Total Compliance, we can draft policies and structure your website to ensure full compliance with all data protection and processing laws.

  • E-Marketing

    Internet marketing constitutes affiliate marketing, pay per click, solid links from high-ranking websites, content of quality and quantity, and clear communication with your prospective customers. If email campaigns are one of your preferred methods of marketing, you need to be aware of the intricacies of the Privacy and Electronic Communications Regulations 2003. Also, buying databases to use for marketing requires particular due diligence to ascertain whether or not they are fit for such purpose. Total Compliance can work with you to ensure your collection or data acquisition strategy is effective and your marketing efforts compliant with all relevant regulations and laws.

  • Hosting and Infrastructure

    A hosting agreement can be very standard, provided your website is not running Amazon. However, heavy traffic requires a very specific Service Level Agreement. The expectations of both parties need to be set out in writing so that there are no surprises if the site goes down. We can help you prepare and negotiate the right SLA to suit your exact requirements. Also, if you outsource your business processes, you need to be sure that every element, from the protection of your IP to your deliverables, is dealt with in the agreement. Total Compliance can assist you to prepare these contracts and guide your course through both hosting and outsourcing.

  • Online Trading

    Selling goods and services online still shares common ground with brick-and-mortar retail operations. You need a solid contract, balanced enough to engage your customers but robust enough to protect your position. Selling via the internet (distance selling) involves additional rights for customers, granted by the Consumer Protection and Distance Selling Regulations 2000. The basic premise of these regulations is to allow customers a ‘cooling off’ period and to adapt the contract making process to the remote nature of the transaction. Accordingly, the structure and presentation of your website all the way through to the online terms, needs careful consideration.

  • Transactions and Payments

    If you are running an e-commerce website, it is vitally important to ensure you have payment solutions readily available. You may also want to integrate your site with alternative payment options such as Pay Pal, Neteller, etc. At Total Compliance, our connections with the online payment industry is extensive, so whether you are providing standard goods or need high risk processing, we can find a solution that perfectly fulfils your needs.

  • Compliance Review of Website

    Often, having an independent, objective review of your work can be hugely beneficial. When you have spent too much time on a project, it can be difficult to separate the ‘trees from the forest’. We can offer a comprehensive compliance review of every aspect of your website including PCI compliance, data collection, marketing, copyright and intellectual property audits. At its conclusion, you will have a report with pragmatic solutions to dramatically improve your website and raise it to meet all regulatory requirements. We will then help you to prioritise and implement our suggestions.

  • Licensing

    The needs and expectations of our clients vary. By examining individual circumstances, we’re able to obtain licences quickly and efficiently in any jurisdiction.

We manage the licensing process completely, including the production of all the systems’ documentation and the business plan. We also liaise with the licensing authority and manage the required due diligence. We help you structure your operation to conform to all local laws and your particular licensing obligations.

We guide you through this process so that no step comes as a surprise and you are aware of the extent of your full commitment before commencement.

  • Payment Processing and Banking

    We have strong relationships with merchant banks and payment processors such as Neteller, Western Union and PayPal.

We can also provide you with corporate banking solutions including segregated client accounts.

  • Advisory Services

    Many of our private clients already have a sophisticated understanding of the principles underpinning tax efficiency and wealth protection.

  • Advisory Services

    Our experts will identify the best solutions to meet your business requirements. We work with both start-up merchants who are looking to expand, and larger organisations that want to consolidate their payment methods and reduce their costs. We can assist you whether you are seeking high volume transactions with low commissions or a plethora of alternative payments from the most well known to the more local and obscure.

  • Offshore Processing

    Offshore companies may struggle to find payment solutions for their activities. Our connections allow us to present such companies with appropriate choices or help them restructure to open up further options in the processing market.

  • Gaming Processing

    Acquiring banks can be quite selective about which operators they accept. Depending on where you are licensed, we can connect you with the right processor for VISA and Mastercard card processing. We can also service your operation with most alternative payment solutions.

  • Gaming Processing

    VISA and Mastercard processing of gaming transactions usually depends on where the operator is licensed.

  • Forex and Binary Options Processing

    Forex and Binary Options is still an uncertain area of processing. Some banks treat it like gaming, others like financial services. In any event, whether you are licensed in Belize, Cyprus or elsewhere, we will pinpoint the best solution for your specific business and connect you with ideal processors.

  • Games

Our groundbreaking work in this regard has helped to define certain areas of internet business and e-Commerce, thereby giving our clients a distinct advantage.

It is imperative to protect IP, secure valuable employees and put in place robust contracts with customers. We strive to understand our clients’ specific needs in this regard, and work hard to draft favorable agreements that secure their company’s long-term prospects.
