The Belgian Data Protection Authority imposed a fine on Google €600,000 because Google did not comply with the right to be forgotten – Google rejected a request from a Belgian citizen to have outdated and negative listings removed from the search results. Google argued that the data controller was Google LLC in the US, not Google Belgium, and therefore the complaint targeted the wrong entity and should be dismissed. The DPA ruled that the two entities act as one, and that the complaint was therefore valid.
