The Court of Appeal of Brussels held that data subjects have the right under Article 16 GDPR for their name to be spelled correctly when processed by a bank’s computer systems.
Specifically his name which contained an acute accent: é was spelled as a normal e. The bank spells the name in all uppercase, and its system couldn’t handle that character in uppercase. Like so: E instead of É.
I thought that I’d share this decision as my own surname contains two letters in uppercase which many systems can’t handle. Also a good reminder that data protection is much more than just privacy.
