The Belgian Protection Authority (DPA) recently fined a social media platform €50,000 for processing personal data during the scope of a referral programme without an appropriate legal basis. This decision is particularly relevant because it was rendered on the basis of the one-stop-shop mechanism and all of the national authorities concerned validated the DPA's reasoning.
