In this edition, our TMT teams in the Benelux focus on recent EU developments such as the privacy aspects of storing fingerprint data (European Court of Human Rights), the Member States’ powers to set spectrum fees and the Article 29 Data Protection Working Party’s opinions on purpose limitation and Templates for Smart Grid and Smart Metering Systems.

 

We have also examined the Brussels Court of Appeal’s decision on hyperlinking to an infringing video and a ruling of the Court of Cassation regarding the termination of agreements.

Our Dutch colleagues zoom in on the Court of Appeal’s decisions regarding on the one hand a liquidator’s right to reject data subjects to access data and on the other hand a liquidator’s right to access the data of the bankrupt company stored in the cloud. They also discuss the Council of States’s decision regarding an individual’s right to access its personal data processed by a former employer.

Our team in Luxembourg covers the new procedures for claims regarding .lu domain names.

Tim Berners-Lee's Solid proposal: the future of data traffic?

Short Reads - The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to strengthen the rights of individuals in respect of their personal data. Although this aim has been achieved to a certain extent, the fundamental framework of the way personal data is processed remains unchanged. Companies are still able to use large amounts of user data, in many cases without even obtaining their consent.
