Webinar: Data protection in Corona times

09.04.2020 BE law

Following our successful series of TMT Roundtable discussions, covering a broad variety of digital law topics, we now continue this initiative by way of a virtual roundtable.

On 15 april 2020 at 2:00 pm, our TMT department organises a webinar on data protection in Corona times.

We will treat a broad variety of questions including:

  • Under what circumstances can an employer check an employee’s (health) information regarding corona (e.g. body temperature, checks on medical preconditions, travel history)? Can this be done when re-instating activities after the unwinding of the restrictions?
  • Can a company check a visitor’s (health) information regarding corona (e.g. suppliers, customers)? What about checks at public places (e.g. airports)?
  • Can a company make use of track & trace apps to verify where people have been (e.g. employees, customers)? Can the government do so as part of an overall public health program to fight against corona?
  • Can a company make use of health care apps?
  • Can the (health/location/other) information be shared with others (e.g. the government, other employees)?
  • Can an employer monitor its employees when performing telework? Are there further practical suggestions for companies facing data protection issues in these times?

Please send an e-mail to events@stibbe.com if you want to participate in this webinar.

Participatie en privacyregels: hoe te combineren onder de Omgevingswet?

Short Reads - In het stelsel van de Omgevingswet (Ow) is een belangrijke rol bedacht voor participatie bij de totstandkoming van besluiten. Het beoogde resultaat: tijdig belangen, meningen en creativiteit op tafel krijgen en daarmee een groter draagvlak en kwalitatief betere besluitvorming bereiken. Door een grotere betrokkenheid van meer personen gaan overheden en initiatiefnemers ook meer persoonsgegevens verwerken. Dit brengt privacyrisico’s met zich mee. Wat regelt de Ow op het gebied van privacy, de verwerking van persoonsgegevens en datagebruik?
