The Belgian DPA has imposed a fine of €2000 on a non-profit association

17 December 2019

The Belgian DPA has imposed a fine of €2000 on a non-profit association that provides specialized nursing care for failure to comply to the access request of a data subject. The data subject had requested access to her personal data, as well as the erasure of her data, after receiving a political email from the delegated administrator of the organization. Evidence suggests the association did not act on these requests. In her decision, the Belgian DPA also orders the nonprofit association to meet the demands of the data subject.
