ENFORCEMENT OF THE ORGANIC LAW 15/1999, OF DECEMBER 21st, PROTECTION OF PERSONAL DATA
We inform you about the coming into force of a regulation on the protection of personal data harmonized at an European level.
Once approved, said regulation will be mandatory for the European Union Member States, and therefore, it will concern Spain. The regulation will include new accountability mechanisms controlled by the Responsible for Personal Data processing within the frame of Privacy by Design or the Impact Assessment, as well as a higher protection of ARCO rights.
We remind you that currently, failure to comply with the regulations on Protection of Personal Data can lead to several punitive consequences, to fines and to damages for the reputation and image of companies (fines up to 40.000 Euro, dissolution of the company, cancellation of the company activities for a period of 5 years maximum, closing the companies’ premises and establishments, ban on access to subsidies, among others).
Our office offers you an integral assessment service for the regularization of the Protection of Personal Data processed in the normal course of the exercise of your daily duties; as well as an adaptation to the legal system relative to transmission of information through electronic networks and commercial electronic communications (LOPD, LSSICE, rights reservation, disclaimers, legal notices, etc.).
Pursuant to the above, we remain at your disposal for any additional information that you may require.
