The Spanish DPA (AEPD) imposed a fine of €3000 on the public workers union (Central Sindical Independiente y de Funcionarios CSI-CSIF) for the infringement of the integrity and confidentiality principle, as per Article 5(1)(f) GDPR.

English Summary


The decision is the consequence of a complaint submitted by a Spanish citizen stating that the union representative of the defendant had openly published an electoral census list (which was exclusive of the union and contained personal data such as the ID numbers of all voters considered regular staff) in an open WhatsApp group (in which almost all the workers of the radiodiagnosis Madrid central unit are included).


The defendant answered to the first AEPD investigation requests stating that: (i) it considered that the data publication was legally covered by the Spanish law on public workers elections, (ii) the publication was made during a legal elections process and due to the request of several members of the WhatsApp group (in which the claimant was included), as they had some difficulties to access the intranet of the union in which such data were already published. The defendant also answered to the subsequent evidence investigation requests by the AEPD stating that: (i) the resolution proposal is not doing an adequate balance of the right to union freedom and the right to the data protection, (ii) there is public interest and legitimate interest in the data processing made by the publication of such data, as it was in the interest of the workers, (iii) there has never been a lack of responsibility in the acts of the union representative, (iv) all the members at the WhatsApp group accessed such information voluntarily, including the claimant, as they are also included in such electoral census list, (v) the communication area claimed is less than other publication media used by the electoral census, (vi) the union is concerned about data protection, and so it contracted the corresponding law firm in order to ensure a full compliance of the regulation, (vii) the claimant avoided to use the reporting channels offered by the defendant. After the investigation process, the AEPD started the corresponding sanction procedure, and understood that: (i) the processing activity consisting of the publication of the personal data would only be legal if its covered by Article 6(1) GDPR, (ii) with basis on several other Spanish regulations, (such as the Worker's Statute, the Spanish law on public workers elections, the Spanish law on private workers elections) there is neither a legal basis to do such publication in the way it has been made, as it shall be made by the polling station at the notice board, (iii) the publication cannot be legally covered by the legitimate interest neither, as the specific personal data published by the union representative were excessive to the alleged purpose, (iv) regarding the balance over data protection right and union freedom right, the union was never obliged to do such publication, so it significantly surpassed the boundaries of Spanish labour law to that respect.

The AEPD started the corresponding sanction procedure.


Thus, the AEPD understood that the defendant has infringed the integrity and confidentiality principle included at Article 5(1)(f) GDPR. Consequently, after considering some circumstances [(i) the local scope of the processing activity made by the defendant, (ii) the number of persons affected by the processing activity, (iii) there is no evidence that the defendant has adopted any measures in order to prevent such issues to happen again in the future, (iv) there is no evidence of wilful misconduct by the defendant, even being this issue a very serious breach of the law, (v) the link between the activity of the defendant and the processing of personal data, and (vi) the defendant has not the consideration of big company, despite it represents a big number of public workers throughout the country], the AEPD decided to impose a fine of 3,000 € to the defendant.

This will be made public innotice boards by exposing them for a period of no less than seventy-fivetwo hours".On the other hand, article 6.2 of Royal Decree 1844/1994, of September 9,by which the Regulations for elections to Representative Bodies ofWorkers in the Company provide that: “In the elections for Delegates ofStaff and members of the Company Committee, communicated to the company the purposeto hold elections for their promoters, this, within seven days, will givetransfer of said communication to the workers who must constitute the table and inthe same term will send the constituents of the polling station the labor census,with an indication of the workers who meet the age and seniority requirements, inthe terms of article 69.2 of the Workers' Statute, precise to showthe status of voters and eligible.The polling station will make public, among workers, the labor census withindication of who are voters and eligible in accordance with article 69.2 of theWorkers' Statute, which will be considered for voting purposes as a listof voters.In the case of elections for Works Councils, the list of voters andeligible will be made public on the notice boards for a period of no less thanseventy-two hours ..Also the Regulation of elections of the personnel at the service of thePublic Administrations approved by Royal Decree 1846/1994, of 9 DecemberSeptember in its article 14, Electoral Census , establishes:"one.

6/12representatives to be elected in the electoral unit, in accordance withArticles 5 and 8 of Law 9/1987.(…)And in its article 18 "Elections to Personnel Delegates", it states that:"one. In the case of elections to Personnel Delegates, the managing bodyof personnel, within the same period of article 7 of these Regulations, will send thecomponents of the polling station census of officials, which will be adjusted, to theseeffects, to normalized model.2. The polling station will fulfill the following functions:a) Make the census public among the officials indicating who they arevoters.b) Set the number of representatives and the deadline for the presentation ofcandidacies.(…) "In view of the transcribed precepts, there is no legal basis for publicationof the data in the form in which it has been made, names and surnames together with the number ofDNI, through an open group of whatsapp in which the majority ofthe workers of the Central Radiodiagnosis Unit of the Community ofMadrid.Who has the responsibility to publish the census data is the BureauElectoral and the aforementioned publication must be made on the notice board so thatcan be endorsed by voters in order to rectify possible errors.And this publication on the board does not violate the legislation on protectionof personal data. Finally, it must be said that the RGPD does notexpress mention of this particular particular, therefore, does not modify the legislationhad to date.The complainant considers that the basis that legitimizes the processing of the data of theclaimant is in the legitimate interest, that is, that the treatment ofpersonal data made through the publication on the social network watsappIt sought to satisfy the exercise of the right to freedom of association.Now, this requires that the pursued interests do not prevail over theinterests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the interested party that require theprotection of personal data, that is, it requires weighing the interests at staketo conclude whether or not the right to freedom of association should prevail or notof the claimant to their privacy.Regarding legitimate interest as a legal basis for data processingpersonal data of third parties, Recital 47 of the RGPD says:<< The legitimate interest of a data controller, including that of aresponsible to whom personal data may be communicated, or of a third party, mayconstitute a legal basis for the treatment, provided that theinterests or the rights and freedoms of the interested party, taking into account thereasonable expectations of stakeholders based on their relationship to theresponsable. Such a legitimate interest could occur, for example, when there is a relationshiprelevant and appropriate between the data subject and the controller, such as in situationsC / Jorge Juan, 6www.aepd.es28001 -

In any case,the existence of a legitimate interest would require a careful assessment, even ifa data subject can reasonably foresee, at the time and in the context of thecollection of personal data, which may be processed for this purpose. InIn particular, the interests and fundamental rights of the interested party couldprevail over the interests of the data controller when proceeding to theprocessing of personal data in circumstances in which the interested party does notreasonably expect further treatment to take place. Since it correspondsthe legislator establish by law the legal basis for the processing of personal databy public authorities, this legal basis should not apply to thetreatment carried out by public authorities in the exercise of their functions. Heprocessing of personal data strictly necessary for preventionfraud is also a legitimate interest of the person responsible for the treatment ofin question. The processing of personal data for direct marketing purposesIt can be considered done for legitimate interest. >>In accordance with the facts at hand, it must be concluded that thetreatment carried out by the CSIF union delegate, through the publicationin a whatsapp group containing most of the Unit's workersCentral Radiodiagnosis of the Community of Madrid, I provide information that does notIt was relevant to the purposes of exercising the aforementioned freedom of association, quite the oppositesince the data provided, list of the census that included the personal dataof the DNI, must be classified as excessive.The processing of data concerning the workers included in the listof the census released is not legal because it did not find protection in the article6.1.f) of the RGPD.In consideration of the foregoing, taking into account that the union delegate of theCSIF unlawfully processed certain personal data that were alien to the intereststrade unions at stake by revealing the ID number of the members of theWhatsApp group, it is concluded that the defendant is responsible for a violation of thearticle 5.1.f), in relation to article 6.1 of the RGPD.The violation of article 5.1.f) of the RGPD is typified in article 83.5.a)of the RGPD. The LOPDGDD, for the purposes of prescription, in its article 72.1.a) qualifies thisvery serious infraction.IVThe defendant has alleged that or has taken into account the weighting between theexercise of the right to freedom of association and the right to data protectionpersonal rights, and freedom of association must prevail in the event that the union hasacted in legitimate exercise of their right to freedom of association in the aspect of theirright to inform about of interest to workers.Regarding the right to freedom of association, it should be noted that thetrade union organizations have recognized a series of competencies for theexercise of their union representation functions and that are protected by theright to freedom of association recognized in article 28.1 of the Constitution,developed through Organic Law 11/1985, of August 2, on Freedom of Association.Union activity includes the right to promote elections and presentcandidacies for the election of company committees and personnel delegates, whichit implies the realization of an electoral campaign and the publication of an electoral census.C / Jorge Juan, 6www.aepd.es28001 -

C) the right to receive theinformation that your union sends you and in the same article, section 2.a),recognizes the right that in order to facilitate the dissemination of those noticesthat may be of interest to union members and workers in general, theThe company will put at your disposal a notice board that should be placed in theworkplace and in a place where adequate access to it is guaranteed by theworkers.In the case we are examining, the right to freedom of association embodied in theinformation provided through the social network is fully satisfied without needto go to said medium so that nothing leads to the right to freedom of association.It is essential to take into account that no obligation had theunion to publish the electoral roll including personal data of theworkers and this because the regulations governing union elections do notimposes in this regard as previously indicated.For all the foregoing, it must be concluded that the action of the recurring UnionIt has notably exceeded the limits in which its performance was protectedfor the legitimate performance of their freedom of association and the omission of advertisingcarried out through the social network would not have implied any kind of impairment inrelation to the exercise of freedom of association and, on the contrary, would have safeguarded theright of the claimant in relation to personal data as relevant as theDNI.VArticle 83.5 a) of the RGPD, considers that the infringement of “the principlesbasic for the treatment, including the conditions for consent in accordance withof articles 5, 6, 7 and 9 ” is punishable, in accordance with section 5 of thementioned article 83 of the aforementioned RGPD, “with administrative fines of € 20,000,000at most or, in the case of a company, an amount equivalent to 4% asmaximum total annual global business volume of the previous financial year,opting for the highest amount ”.And the LOPDGDD in its article 72 indicates for the purposes of prescription: "Infractionsconsidered very serious:1.
