The first Belgian blog dedicated to data privacy, intellectual property, new technologies and related issues, including legal, organizational and security aspects that are essential for citizens, corporations and public bodies.
The project of a new law is presently circulating before the Belgian Parliament. It will create a new legal framework concerning the so-called blacklists and in particular the blacklists that are shared by more than one responsible. It maimly concerns the blacklist made within some sectors in order to check the financial situation of future customers.
The main principles are the following:
multisectorial blacklist are forbidden
there will be additional conditions in order to create a sectorial blacklist or an external blacklist
specific declaration before the privacy commission
privacy officer to be designated
preliminary authorisation from the privacy commission
additional information for the consumer
additiona right to access
The practical question if of course, even if some blacklists are forbidden or more regulated: How could I know that I am in a blacklist?
