The Spanish DPA fined a controller acting on behalf of Vodafone €20,000 for making unsolicited commercial calls to a data subject. The controller failed to adequately check phone numbers against a list of users who did not wish to receive calls.

English Summary[edit | edit source]

Facts[edit | edit source]

A data subject filed a complaint with the Spanish DPA (AEPD) for receiving unsolicited commercial calls on behalf of Vodafone. The complainant was registered on the Robinson list, an advertising exclusion system regulated in Article 23 of the Spanish Data Protection Act (LOPDGDD).

The calls were carried out by the subcontractor Oasip on behalf of Vodafone. The agreement between both companies included the obligation of filtering the list of numbers against the Robinson list, to avoid making calls to the people registered.

Holding[edit | edit source]

The AEPD hold that Oasip is a controller and considered them aware of the problem with filtering the phone-numbers, since it happened seven times in two months without them implementing necessary measures to prevent it from happening again.

The DPA concluded that the company acted for their own benefit, and held them responsible of the infringement. Therefore, and since sending unsolicited commercial communications is forbidden by Article 48(1)(b) of the Spanish Telecommunications Act (LGT) the DPA fined the controller €20,000.

The DPA also noted that it would initiate a different investigation into Vodaphone in relation to the same events, in order to determine whether Vodaphone had acted appropriately.

Organic 3/2018, of December 5, Protection of Personal Data and guarantee of

digital rights (hereinafter LOPDGDD).

As a result of the investigative actions carried out, it is verified that the
responsible for the treatment is the claimed one.


BACKGROUND

Claim entry date: July 29, 2020.

Claimant: A.A.A.


Claimed: VODAFONE ESPAÑA, S.A.U.

Facts according to the claims of the claimant:

The antecedents that appear in the information systems are the following:


In the framework of procedure E / 06811/2020, dated September 7, 2020, the
AEPD, by virtue of article 65.4 of Organic Law 3/2018, of December 5, of
Protection of Personal Data and guarantee of digital rights, gave transfer of the
claim to the defendant. This one, in response of October 9, 2020 (number of

entry record in the AEPD O00007128e2000005586) stated, with respect to the
Claimant's telephone line that “[…] was listed on the official Robinson list
ADigital since June 19, 2018. However, it has been verified that
was not registered on Vodafone's internal Robinson list, having been registered
on September 9, 2020, as a result of the entry of this claim. ”.


In addition, in relation to the calling numbers, it states that “we have verified that
some of the lines of origin of the received calls are
associated with the following collaborator: Casmar […] this collaborator does not discuss the bases of
data provided by Vodafone, but use their own databases ”.


He adds that this situation "has led them to immediately begin to consider
solutions and measures to be applied in relation to this collaborator, in order to avoid
unwanted calls continue to occur. […] Have been implemented since
January 2020 the following actions:


    - Force all collaborators door to door by contract to emit
    calls from Vodafone numbers through a Voice IP operator
    made available to you by Vodafone. In this way, through the system of
    dialing, you can filter with Robinson lists the databases of

C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.agpd.es
28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 3/25








    campaign recipients. This is so because the databases used for
    acquisition are owned by the collaborator and since Vodafone does not provide them with
    databases, we understand that it is the best solution to ensure filtering.


    We attach as a single document the communication sent to our
    door to door collaborators reiterating their data protection obligations
    and privacy and urging them to review their data processing processes at
    name of Vodafone in order that they comply with all the
    requirements of current regulations on the protection of personal data, such and

    as regulated in the contract signed with Vodafone and in the processes and
    current working procedures between both entities.

    - Since all sales made by these door to door collaborators
    door are audited by a supplier outside these collaborators, it has been

    worked on carrying out a development so that sales can be compared in the
    systems, rejecting those that have not been made through the operator
    of Voice and therefore there is no certainty that it meets the requirements of
    filtered out. In this way, it could not be the case that sales arrived for
    load into our systems, which come from calls that have not been made
    from the Vodafone numbers. This way it can be ensured that all traffic

    is controlled and complies with the requirements dictated by Vodafone,
    discouraging the use of numbers not authorized by Vodafone and, for
    Therefore, the previous non-filtering with the advertising exclusion lists.

Likewise, on September 17, 2019 we met in person with the

responsible for three distributors of the door to door channel: Casmar, Three Quartets and
Solivesa, to reiterate the obligations that correspond to them when they perform
pick-up calls in the name of Vodafone, even if the databases are yours.
In addition, the objective of said meeting was to obtain commitments for their part of improvement
of its controls and processes to ensure that cases such as those that constitute this

complaint will not happen again in the future. "

The defendant has attached to the letter a copy of an email sent on 30
July 2019 to collaborators in which he urges them to review their processes,
transfer the obligations to your staff and verify that the data processing
performed on behalf of the claimed person "complies with current regulations,

with the contract signed between both parties, and with the processes and procedures of
current work between our companies ”. The statement specifies the following:

"On this occasion and with this statement we want to make special focus on the possible
calls that they may be making to potential clients for the purpose of

recruitment and remind you of the obligations that must be strictly adhered to in your
execution:

A) In the event that they process databases of potential customers that Vodafone
facilitates directly must:


   - Use them during the stipulated time and exclusively for the campaign
   indicated. These databases are previously filtered by Vodafone both with the
   internal Robinson database as well as the Robinson database of

C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.agpd.es
28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 4/25








   ADigital in order to ensure that none of the potential clients have
   communicated your wish not to receive commercial calls or messages. Yes
   later these databases are used in future campaigns, these
   they may be out of date and pose a high risk of penalties.


B) On the other hand, if they make calls using their own databases
data, not provided by Vodafone, you must ensure that:

     - That they have the prior and express approval of Vodafone to carry out
     said calls.


     - That they have the data in a lawful way, informing and obtaining the
     consent of the holders to be able to carry out commercial actions in
     Vodafone name. We remind you that the use of databases is prohibited.
     data for capture purposes on behalf of Vodafone that do not comply with this
     requirement.


     - Filter your databases with public Robinson lists, for example, the
     managed by ADigital, prior to the start of the campaign.

     - Do not use means of communication that have not been consented to by the
     campaign recipients.


In both scenarios, it is essential that the collaborator:

     - Provide a simple means for any recipient of the
     campaign can communicate their willingness not to continue receiving calls or
     commercial messages on behalf of Vodafone.


     - Immediately transfer the data of those recipients to Vodafone
     that they have been informed that they do not wish to receive further communications
     commercials and ensure that they do not contact them again in future
     emissions.


     - In the case of telephone contact, scrupulously comply with the
     current regulations on consumer rights, and in particular,
     make calls:

          within the legally permitted hours (Monday to Friday working days,

         from 9:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m.).
          from an identifiable number.
          identifying the call as commercial in nature.

Additionally, we remind you that you must comply with each and every one of the

obligations that correspond to you as processors according to the
European Regulation 2016/679 (RGPD) and that have been transferred to you by Vodafone
contractually.

Finally, it is important that you provide us, if you have not already done so, in a

immediate all the numbers through which they make calls to customers and
C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.agpd.es
28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 5/25








potential clients since from Vodafone we are creating a database
identifying each collaborator with the telephone numbers associated with it.

Vodafone cannot maintain its contractual relationship with those collaborators who
do not strictly comply with these obligations, so we also

We reserve the possibility of auditing, at any time, the performance of the
data processing activities that collaborators carry out on their behalf, in order to
to verify strict compliance with these requirements. Likewise, Vodafone
reserves the right to take any legal actions that correspond to it in the case
receiving any type of sanction from the Spanish Agency for the Protection of
Data or direct claims of the recipients if they cause the

breach of the obligations of a Vodafone collaborator ”.

              Annex II of the contract, entitled "THIRD EMPLOYEES", no

              includes no collaborator (“No collaborators”).

              Annex IV refers to the "DATA PROCESSING AGREEMENT
              PERSONAL DE VODAFONE ”between the defendant and ThreeQ de
              application to the processing of personal data whose purpose is the Registration
              of Vodafone products and services.


    - ThreeQ performs, dated May 24, 2021 (written with number of
    registration in the AEPD O00007128e2100023277), the following
    statements in relation to this case:

          “As a result of the procedure with File number No.:

         E / 08519/2019, Vodafone implemented the following measures:

                   Force all collaborators to make calls from
                      VODAFONE numberings, to be able to filter with the lists

                      Robinson's campaign recipient databases.

    - Carry out a development so that the supplier can check before the
    load of the sale in the systems, that there has been a call from a number
    authorized from the agency to the potential client. In this way, the
    case sales are charged that come from calls that have not been

    made from the VODAFONE numberings. This way it can be ensured that everything
    traffic is controlled and complies with the requirements dictated by
    VODAFONE.

    To do this, VODAFONE forced us to sign a contract with the company OASIP
    SERVICIO INTEGRAL DE COMUNICACIONES S.L, is attached as Annex I (in

    ahead OASIP) which is the provider of the [sic] Ip Voice solutions and
    Filtered through the advertising exclusion files. Without such a contract the
    telephone company does not authorize the subcontracting of the treatment of

    teleshopping.

    On the other hand, VODAFONE itself established a mechanism added to the
    described above for querying numberings that should not be performed
    a so-called “DrTool” which started working in October 2020.
    This tool obliges all collaborators to previously upload the list of

    potential calls to be made to exclude those numbers that the own
    company has listed on an advertising exclusion list. When the
    information has already been consulted, a list with the numbers is returned
    accepted to make the call through the provided ip voice system
    by the company OASIP.


    Through this procedure, VODAFONE ensures that calls made
    carried out are legal and are not carried out to any number [sic] found in
    advertising exclusion lists or numbers that have expressed directly to
    VODAFONE who do not want to receive more publicity.


    A copy of the e-mails where the details of the
    start of the procedures described, as well as different instructions indicated
    by VODAFONE for the use of the same.

    On the other hand, a copy of the contract with RYV CALL is attached as Annex III

    CONECTION, EIRL where their obligations as managers of the
    treatment.

    […] It should be noted that our entity has terminated the contract for the provision of
    services with VODAFONE so today it does not have any

    current subcontracting.

    However, despite the above, the last complete list of
    collaborators referred to VODAFONE as annex IV. Highlight that the
    Interlocutor of VODAFONE, B.B.B., is the one who asked us for a copy of the contracts
    of the collaborators with whom we work and in no case never stated

    that we should stop working with any of the collaborators. What's more,
    from OASIP, VODAFONE has access to the call numbers assigned to
    each of the collaborators. Therefore, the authorization was always tacit, since
    that despite the fact that VODAFONE had evidence of our collaboration network
    he never expressed any opposition. "

               November 2019 between Oasip and ThreeQ. There is no mention in it

THIRD: By Agreement dated June 10, 2021, the Director of the Agency
Spanish Data Protection Agency agreed to initiate a sanctioning procedure at the
claimed for the alleged violation of Article 48.1.b) of the LGT of Law 9/2014,
of May 9, General of Telecommunications (hereinafter LGT). The facts
exposed could imply a violation of Article 48.1.b) of the LGT, typified in the
Article 77.37 of the LGT (serious offense), which may be sanctioned with a fine of

up to 2,000,000 euros, in accordance with article 79.1.c) of the same LGT.

FOURTH: On 7/7/2021, OASIP presented allegations to the agreement to initiate the
sanctioning procedure, in summary, in the following terms:

C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.agpd.es
28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 16/25









1) << In the agreement to initiate this sanctioning procedure, there has been no
considering the principle of RESPONSIBILITY or authorship, by not directing the actions

against the perpetrator responsible for the infringement committed, but against a company (the
signatory of this writing) with a collateral intervention to the imputed facts, therefore
that we understand ... that the examining body has acted incorrectly since
The file can only be directed against natural or legal persons who
had committed the offense.


Our disagreement with the initiation of this sanctioning procedure lies in the
disagreement with the imputation of responsibility for the occurrence of some
facts in which our intervention is purely "medial" and, specifically, with the
improper application to our business activity of article 23.4 of the LOPDGDD.
The key to this precept and its relationship with the case brought against OASIP is

at the beginning of its literal tenor: "Those who intend to carry out communications
direct marketing "; this activity is completely unrelated to the one carried out
our company. They are the VODAFONE companies and the so-called collaborators of
VODAFONE, among others, CASMAR TELECOM S.L. (hereinafter Casmar) and THREE-
QUARTERS FULL SL (hereinafter ThreeQ) who carry out this activity and
who profit from the services they offer.


Vodafone forces these two distributors or to "filter" these calls
to prevent them from calling user numbers that are included in the Robinson list,
but those are reluctant to subscribe to the List because it is not free,
so Vodafone signs up for the Robinson List service and forces the

distributors to follow the system of action that we describe: Vodafone delivers
directly or OASIP the Robinson listing or through a "flp" and what our
company was a real-time consultation of the call, so that if the number
destination was on that list, the call did not go out and if the number was not there, it went out.


This 'modus operandi' had the problem that this rise by Vodafone of
the Robinson list had to be daily to be up to date, but that was not the case. From
done. They updated it every 15 days so there were periods of time during
which was not up to date, and finally stopped updating it (the last
update was received on 03/9/2020) and the facts that are imputed are dated June and
July 2020. In order to prove what has been said, various emails are provided between OASIP and

Vodafone, among other documents.

Well, making 7 calls out of a total of 520,371 we can qualify it as
punctual and fortuitous incident and not a lack of diligence in the observance of the
action protocols. The more calls made, the more likely it is to

       competent as responsible for the treatment now analyzed (filtered by
       robinson listing)

    2) Violation of the principle of Responsibility, as Vodafone is responsible

       of the imputed facts.

       aggravating factors. The seven unwanted calls that are imputed involved a
       profit of € 0.0083. Wrongful responsibility is inconsistent with
       serious typing. In the present case, OASIP meets all the criteria for
       attenuation indicated in art. 80.1 of the LGT.


In view of all the actions, by the Spanish Agency for Data Protection

VDF who obliges its treatment managers to redirect all actions
through OASIP in order for this entity to filter the recipients whose

updated the list of excluded that it gave him to proceed to the filtering of
calls.




                            FOUNDATIONS OF LAW

                                             I
In accordance with the provisions of article 84.3) of Law 9/2014, of May 9,

General de Telecomunicaciones (hereinafter, LGT), the competence to initiate and
Resolve this Penalty Procedure corresponds to the Director of the
Spanish Agency for Data Protection.

                                            II

In relation to the allegations presented by OASIP after the initiation agreement, it is
means the following:

1R) First of all, it should be noted that the examining body does not carry out the agreement of
start, but is named precisely in that agreement.


Second, OASIP's factual rating should be viewed as
responsible for the treatment related to the filtering of calls made by the
those in charge of the treatment of Vodafone, concept formulated in the RGPD.

In the present case, OASIP was previously aware of the problems that arose with the

Robinson list provided by Vodafone and continued with the same treatment
on the numbers included in the list, for profit, without correcting the
deficiencies to which he was bound by contract and which continued until July
2020, which has led to the repeated violation (seven times in two months) of
rights and freedoms of the claimant.


Finally, it should be noted that the claimant was included in the Róbinson list since
June 19, 2018, so the successive updates to the date of the events
they did not affect the "modus operandi" of call filtering, since in subsequent
lists provided by Vodafone -updated or not- there was always the line of
the claimant.


Consequently, from the previous inspection actions carried out by this
AEPD is accredited that OASIP is ultimately responsible for the conduct now
analyzed.


2R) In this regard, it should be noted that this AEPD has carried out an exhaustive
prior investigation in order to clarify the responsibilities in the violation of the
rights and freedoms of the claimant and has collected sufficient evidence to
enervate the principle of presumption of innocence. Said investigation and evidence of
position is detailed in the antecedents of this proposal for

resolution.

3R) Regarding the alleged violation of the principle of proportionality, it means
which was already taken into account in the initiation agreement itself, since the sanction

C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.agpd.es
28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 20/25








proposal (initial € 30,000) already contemplated the aforementioned principle as
stated in the initiation agreement itself. In fact, the maximum legal penalty is
2,000,000 euros and the current proposal accepting the mitigating measures put forward (20,000

€) is one hundred times less in consideration of the mitigating factors applied at the request of the
responsable.

4R) << Error in the classification of the offense and error in the consideration of the
Sections c) and g) of art. 80.1 of the LGT as aggravating factors >>.


Regarding aggravating 80.1.c) of the LGT, it affects what was said in the initiation agreement.
In addition, regarding the absence of benefits, what is relevant is that the
OASIP's performance was motivated by the search for economic benefit, by
what the fact that it was insignificant or did not finally come to be obtained
cannot serve as a basis for an attenuation of guilt or unlawfulness of

their conduct.

Regarding aggravating 80.1.g) of the LGT, in addition to what has already been said in the
beginning, it is proven that OASIP improperly called the claimant in seven
occasions despite being included in the advertising exclusion list
Róbinson since 2018, and being responsible for avoiding such calls. The error

alleged could be taken into account if he were invincible, but in the circumstances now
analyzed (seven calls in two months) cannot be described as invincible but as
an action, at least, of culpable responsibility.

Consequently, the claims to the Initiation Agreement must be rejected.




                                            III
In relation to the allegations presented on 07/22/2021 by OASIP after the

Resolution Proposal, reiterate those already alleged in the Initiation Agreement. However, at
Next, the answer to the allegations in the
following terms:

1R) The proven fact Third and Fourth of the proposed Resolution are not
accredited. The person responsible for the alleged infringement is Vodafone, as it is the

competent as responsible for the treatment now analyzed.

Regarding the first of the allegations presented, note that the facts
proven are fully accredited in the Background after the
investigations carried out by the Inspection of this AEPD in the proceedings

previous. In addition, the OASIP itself confirms the materialization of the calls
made to the claimant on seven occasions, even though her telephone line was registered
in the advertising exclusion list since 2020.

2R) Violation of the principle of Responsibility, as Vodafone is responsible for

the imputed facts.

Regarding the second of the allegations to the Proposal for Resolution, it should be noted that
the owner of the calling line is OASIP. In addition, OASIP was in charge of carrying out

C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.agpd.es
28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 21/25








the filtering of numberings included in the advertising exclusion lists in the
actions carried out by Vodafone. In addition, they are already debugged in
separate procedure initiated by this AEPD the responsibilities in which it has

incurred Vodafone. In this sense, it should be noted that the responsibilities in the facts
imputed by both entities are of a different nature, although both are
complementary, which is why different procedures have been initiated.

3R) Violation of the fundamental right to the presumption of innocence. The AEPD does not
has proven "incontrovertibly who made the calls."


It has already been indicated that the alleged facts have been investigated in the proceedings
previous research carried out by this AEPD, and have distorted the aforementioned
alleged principle. In fact, it is stated in previous actions that it was OASIP who
made through a numbering assigned to her the seven improper calls to the

claimant.

4R) Violation of the principle of proportionality and duty to state the amount of the
sanction.

In this sense, as stated in the Proposal for Resolution, the sanction has been

reduced to less than half of the maximum amount of the offenses typified
as mild. Finally, it should be emphasized that OASIP was aware of the dysfunctionality of the
crossover procedure with ad exclusion listings and continued to allow the
making calls even knowing that Vodafone is not regularized
the advertising exclusion listings from 03/9/2020, when calls

improper actions were carried out during the months of June and July 2020 (as confirmed by
OASIP in the allegations).

5R) Improper application of art 77.37 of the LGT. The offense must be, in any case,
classified as mild, in accordance with art. 78.11 of the LGT.


It has already been pointed out that OASIP materialized the offending act on seven occasions
repeatedly violating the rights of the claimant, which makes it possible to classify
how serious the offense.

6R) Improper application of sections c) and g) of art. 80.1 of the LGT as

aggravating factors. The seven unwanted calls that are imputed represented a benefit of
€ 0.0083. The wrongful responsibility is inconsistent with the serious classification. At
In this case, OASIP meets all the mitigation criteria indicated in the
art. 80.1 of the LGT.


Already answered extensively and motivated in the allegations to the Initiation Agreement
(4R).

Consequently, the allegations to the Motion for Resolution must be
rejected.


                                           IV
The art. 23 of the LOPDGDD, states the following:

It will not be necessary to carry out the query referred to in the previous paragraph when the
affected would have provided, in accordance with the provisions of this organic law, its
consent to receive the communication to whoever intends to make it >>.


In the present case, it is established that the claimant's line number was
included in the Adigital Robinson exclusion list since 01/16/2020 and the
Advertising calls in the name and on behalf of VDF were made from one line
whose owner is OASIP in June and July 2020. Likewise, it is proven that it was
OASIP who did not previously filter the call with the advertising exclusion list

Robinson of Adigital, when it was his responsibility to do so by imperative of the person in charge
advertising actions, repeating the calls seven times.

                                            V
The known facts are constitutive of an infraction, attributable to the defendant, for

violation of article 48.1.b) of the LGT, included in its Title III, which indicates the

unsolicited communications end users of communications services
electronic companies will have the following rights:
(…)

b) To oppose receiving unwanted calls for commercial communication purposes

be informed of this right. "

The offense is classified as serious in article 77.37 of said rule, which considers
as such: "The serious violation of the rights of consumers and users
final, as established in Title III of the Law and its implementing regulations ”. On

the present case, and in relation to the provisions of art. 78.11 of the LGT (infractions
minor), the existence of aggravated liability should be noted upon being accredited
the reiteration on seven occasions of the imputed fact, which allows its classification
as serious.

This serious offense can be sanctioned with a fine of up to 2,000,000 euros, of

in accordance with article 79.1.c) of the aforementioned LGT.

sanctioning file. There is no evidence of the cessation of the infringing activity by OASIP or that
