This edition covers topical issues such as the European Commission’s proposal for the revision of the Data Protection Directive, and European Court of Justice caselaw on the monitoring obligation’s incompatibility with EU law, and a judgment concerning the grounds for the processing of personal data.

We have also focused on recent regional case law with regard to various ICT topics such as Belgian case law on the interpretation of the Data Protection Act, the confidentiality of Facebook-messaging, the Privacy Commission’s guidance on the use of mobile phones by employees, and the use of surveillance cameras in prison cells and detention rooms. In addition, we have featured Dutch case law concerning the following: an IT dispute; moderation of contractually agreed penalty; legislative proposal for changes to the Dutch Data Protection Act; and the Data Protection Authority’s decisions on non-compliance of travel data processing.
