Control regime:

The control body for compliance with data protection regulations within Spanish territory, in general, is the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD), and there are other Data Protection Agencies of an autonomous nature, in the Autonomous Communities of Madrid , Catalonia and in the Basque Country.

The sanctions have a high amount, being Spain the country of the European Union that has the highest penalties on data protection.

These penalties depend on the offense committed.

Despite this high amount, there are many companies in Spain that have not yet adapted to the same, or have done so in a partial way or do not periodically review their adequacy; so it is essential to maintain and review the adequacy.

In the public sector, this Law also regulates the use and management of information and files with personal data used by all public administrations.
