Data Protection Compliance in Spain (2015)

04 August 2015
Spain is well known for having one of the most restrictive data protection regimes in the European Union (EU). It also counts with some of the highest penalties (fines are up to € 600,000 per infringement), and a data protection authority – the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) – with a reputation for being one of the fiercest of the EU. Moreover, the penalties envisaged are not only on paper; they are applied on a regular basis by the AEPD. For instance, in the past few years, it has imposed fines of 450,000, 900,000 and 1,400,000.
