In this edition, our TMT teams in the Benelux focus on topical issues such as the new cloud computing strategy launched by the European Commission, on Article 29 Working Party’s adopted opinions on cookie consent exemption and cloud computing. We also analyse three interesting decisions of the European Court of Justice.
We have also examined recent Belgian case developments with regard to the New Cookie Act, the use of Facebook information by employers from an employee’s profile, the principles of employees’ rights in case of transfer of undertakings when insourcing and the Privacy Commissions’ recommendation on surveillance at the workplace.
Our Dutch colleagues zoom in on (a.o.) the Revised Telecommunications Act, the publication of rectifications on Twitter and blogs and on the amendments to Exemption Decree DDPA, Costs Decree and Notification Decree.
