Has your business already adapted to the Data Protection Law?
The functioning of any business entails the provision and handling of personal data, ranging from data relating to workers for the preparation of pay slips to data about your clients for invoicing. Data Protection Law 15/1999 (13 December) imposes a series of legal obligations for those legal or natural persons who have files containing personal data.
Who is affected?
All businesses and professionals who in the course of their activities handle personal data. Thus it affects IT systems, back-up files, operational procedures, etc. Almost 100% of businesses and professionals handle personal data, meaning we are all affected. The obligation to conform is unavoidable.
What is personal data?
Any information concerning identified or identifiable natural persons, for example, a list of clients, workers or suppliers, and any other data stored in or on any information medium.
What are the sanctions?
Compliance with the legal obligations in respect of data protection is essential in order to avoid the heavy penalties that may follow from an inspection or complaint.
The DPL classifies the possible sanctions as minor, serious and very serious, establishing sanctions that range from €601.01 (100,000 pesetas) to €601,012 (100 million pesetas).
