Brussels Court of Appeal overrules first DPA fine to a private company

On Feb. 19, the Brussels Court of Appeal overruled one of the first decisions of the Belgian Data Protection Authority in a case involving the use of an electronic ID to get a loyalty card.

The Brussels Court of Appeal held that the customer did not give her identity card and, consequently, there was no processing of her data. Therefore, according to the court, the DPA did not demonstrate an actual personal data breach.

The court still underlined there was no prejudice for a customer because they could not get a loyalty card and therefore get a discount. There is no prejudice when one possible extra benefit is lost. It would have been different if the reading of the electronic ID was required to exercise a legal or contractual right.
