In this edition, our Benelux TMT teams take a closer look at recent EU developments. These include the data breach notification regulation that was issued by the European Commission and the ECJ decision that stated the use of metatags is a form of “advertising”.

 

We have also examined various changes in the Belgian legal landscape, including the Court of Cassation’s confirmation of the access right of data subject, the Privacy Commission’s new protocol concerning the transfer of personal data outside the EU, etc. Our Tax department colleagues contributed to this edition by writing an article on the amendments to the Belgian tax shelter regime.

Our Dutch colleagues zoom in on the general data security breach notification, the non-obligation of a Dutch bank to provide BREIN with personal data of a bank account’s authorized representative, and the court’s rejection of the provision of medical documents for privacy reasons. They also discuss the Public Consultation via the Internet on data security breach notification for vital systems.

Our team in Luxembourg covers the new right to claim data from bankrupt cloud computing providers.
