Lawyer for Business and Professional Services in Axarquia
Data Protection Lawyer
We may think that, because of our type of activity or business, we do not process sensitive customer or supplier data. The truth is that, at the very least, we will need to have their name, tax identification number and address in order to be able to invoice or receive. And these already constitute personal data that the law obliges us to safeguard and whose possession implies that we have a series of obligations with the holder and with the Administration.
But depending on the type of activity in which we are engaged, we may have access to a multitude of data on intimate aspects of people, from health or criminal records, to personal or family relationships and sexual or religious tendencies.
The data protection of individuals and in particular of consumers is a constantly evolving subject, always seeking to tighten the supervision and obligations of self-employed professionals and entrepreneurs in order to guarantee the rights of individuals.
In Spain, the previous Law in force in 1999 was replaced by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union, transposed to our country by the Organic Law on Personal Data Protection and Guarantee of Digital Rights of 2018.
The requirements to be met by the professional will be more demanding the greater the volume and quality of the data he obtains, the channels through which he collects them or the purpose of the data. An internal data protection officer should even be appointed, depending on the size of the company.
At Montosa Solicitor we advise you on the measures you should take to have your business adapted to data protection regulations, for your peace of mind and that of your clients, and we can include the service as part of the comprehensive consultancy service, if required.
