" "We inform you that the data has been obtained by consent of the interested party by derivation of a contractual obligation, by a legitimate assignment or from a source of public access ”. The emails sent did not contain the literal that makes it possible to stop receiving these emails. 3) It highlights a difference in information on the legitimizing base, when the data, which indicates the associative relationship as the purpose of the data, and WHAT MAY BE used to "send you information of your interest as well as activities of the Brotherhood" and the information contained in the e-mails, with the citation in the body of the en- email transmission from various legitimating bases. 4) The receipt of communications via e-mail from the complained party is not mandatory, existing in emails dated after the dates of the reported shipments, the option of "Cancel the subscription", there being no proven subscription properly by the Guilds.

" It does not provide the informative literal to verify the form and content contained creto of the information implemented that could be related to the sending of email to informative effects of the Brotherhood. The respondent contributed, among others, emails sent after those who have been the subject of claims. tion, with this new system. In one of 10/13/2020, entitled: “information of interest and for- form ”, it is communicated that an“ identification card ”will be elaborated, being obligatory“ to fill in narrate the following informative literal thus also accepting the update of the Data Protection. *** URL.1 ”(the aforementioned form is not provided). However, the literal infor- Mative of the mail of 10/13/2020 is the same as the emails of March 2019 and 09/29/2019, with the addition of the option “CLICK HERE TO CANCEL THE SUBSCRIPTION” “if applicable. from the cancellation of the subscription, you will stop receiving notifications in relation to the Fradia, this being the only official means of information ”. FOUNDATIONS OF LAW I By virtue of the powers that article 58.2 of the RGPD recognizes to each control authority trol, and as established in articles 47 and 48 of the LOPDGDD, the Director of the Agency The Spanish Data Protection Company is competent to initiate and resolve this procedure. performance. II The respondent is charged with an infringement of article 13 of the RGPD, which determines the information information that must be provided to the interested party at the time of data collection, sta- stating the following: "1. When personal data relating to him are obtained from an interested party, the respondent The data controller, at the time these are obtained, will provide you with all the information indicated below: a) the identity and contact details of the person in charge and, where appropriate, their representative tante; b) the contact details of the data protection officer, if applicable; c) the purposes of the treatment to which the personal data are destined and the legal basis of the treatment; d) when the treatment is based on article 6, paragraph 1, letter f), the interests gitimos of the person in charge or of a third party; e) the recipients or categories of recipients of personal data, in their case; f) where appropriate, the intention of the person responsible to transfer personal data to a third party country or international organization and the existence or absence of an appropriate decision qualification of the Commission, or, in the case of the transfers indicated in the articles 46 or 47 or article 49, paragraph 1, second subparagraph, reference to the appropriate guarantees appropriate and the means of obtaining a copy of these or the fact that C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.aepd.es 28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 7/14 that have been borrowed. 2. In addition to the information mentioned in section 1, the data controller ment will provide the interested party, at the time the personal data is obtained, the following information necessary to guarantee fair and transparent data processing: a) the period during which the personal data will be kept or, when not possible, sible, the criteria used to determine this term; b) the existence of the right to request the data controller for access to the personal data relating to the interested party, and its rectification or deletion, or the limitation of its treatment, or to oppose the treatment, as well as the right to portability of the data; c) when the treatment is based on article 6, paragraph 1, letter a), or article lo 9, section 2, letter a), the existence of the right to withdraw consent in any- at any time, without affecting the legality of the treatment based on the consent prior to withdrawal; d) the right to file a claim with a supervisory authority; e) if the communication of personal data is a legal or contractual requirement, or a re- I want necessary to sign a contract, and if the interested party is obliged to provide personal data and is informed of the possible consequences of not facilitating lite such data; f) the existence of automated decisions, including profiling, to which referred to in article 22, paragraphs 1 and 4, and, at least in such cases, significant information nificant on the applied logic, as well as the importance and consequences views of said treatment for the interested party. 3. When the data controller plans the further processing of data personal data for a purpose other than that for which they were collected, will provide the interest given, prior to said further processing, information on that other purpose and any additional relevant information pursuant to section 2. 4. The provisions of paragraphs 1, 2 and 3 shall not apply when and on the given that the interested party already has the information ”. In general, the legitimizing basis for data processing would be related to the scheme provided for in article 6.1b), the treatment is necessary for the execution of a contract or agreement in which the interested party is a party or for the application at his request of pre-contractual measures. Now, in this case, what is involved is the use of e-mail and the setting in the data collection, its use and purpose. The denounced events initially materialize in the absence of information about of the processing of personal data, especially the e-mail, if it is mandatory to provide Provide the e-mail to receive the information, or if you can, I will not consent to it, giving the option tion if so, or detailing the consequences of not providing such data. In addition, the base legal treatment of sending emails by e-mail must specify a legal basis treatment. The data collection that occurs when entering the Brotherhood must be distinguished, and contains some data and information that were given, including the e-mail, indicating that C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.aepd.es 28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 8/14 will use "for the maintenance of the relationship", adding that: "In addition, these data may be used to send you information of interest, as well as about activities of the Brotherhood ”, which is what is done by sending e-mails. This option of being in- formed, which, it is deduced, as a voluntary one by containing the option to “cancel your subscription tion ”, it is not related to the maintenance of the relationship, it is not completed with the option at the time of data collection to opt out of receiving information of interest or of activities of the Brotherhood. Likewise, the information contained in the e-mails does not succeed in establishing the legal basis scammer of these shipments, mixing diverse, different and contradictory motives. By examining the information that is given in the registration of the members, it is reported in a general that the purpose of data processing is the "maintenance of the relationship as a person belonging to the Brotherhood, with the specific purposes established in the Statutes" The e-mails indicated: The purpose of this treatment will be the management of normal business activity through communication systems with all stakeholders. " The purpose of the collection must be clearly and specifically identified: it must be sufficiently detailed to determine what type of treatment is or is not included in the specified objective, and to allow compliance with the law to be assessed and data protection safeguards apply. Any purpose must be specified, that is, define enough to be explicit. The objective must be sufficiently unequivocal and clearly expressed. The requirement that the purposes be specified 'explicitly' contributes to transparency and predictability. It allows an unambiguous identification of the limits of the way in which the Controllers may use the personal data collected, in order to protect the data teresados. Each goal of treatment must be separate and specific. Maintenance o compliance with the associative relationship is one objective, the information would be another. The information of the treatment and the legitimizing basis for the use and purpose of the treatment of the e-mail offered is confusing in the wording: "We inform you that the data has been obtained by consent of the interested party by derivation of a contractual obligation, by a legitimate assignment or from a source of public access " In the discharge of the members, it is indicated that the data is for the maintenance of the relationship, not requiring consent. Even less, consent can be made derive from “a contractual obligation, by a legitimate assignment or from a source of public access ”as reported in e-mails. Originally, in the high as Cofrades, the option is not given to the affected, so that the purpose of maintaining the contractual relationship is differentiated from that of being informed C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.aepd.es 28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 9/14 do, being different. For the maintenance of the relationship it is not necessary to send the e mails to associates, which is a voluntary addition, by offering the possibility of canceling the subscription. It is the responsibility of the respondent to prove compliance with the provisions of article 13 of the GDPR. Therefore, it has been proven that, at the time of the claimant's discharge, no produces adequate information in the collection and use of data from the e-mail address and purpose of information to members. Circumstance that remains and is credited with the sending the e-mails that are the subject of the claim, and which persists with the current configuration of the e-mails, which have not changed. The respondent should reevaluate the associative purposes of the activity of the respondent, of which the intrinsic acceptance of the Statutes would be part, which is the basis original legitimizer of the personal data of the members of the Brotherhood, and distinguish it from your use of emails to members. The complained party must take into account the processing of other data under another legitimizing basis. that does not obey the relationship, in this case statutory between its members and the claimed. To do this, you must take into account the elements that make up the consent informed: “for one or more specific purposes”, and the freedom to grant or withdraw it without suffer any damage, as well as the possibility of revoking it at any time with the same effects. In accordance with article 58.2 of the RGPD: "2. Each supervisory authority shall have all the following corrective powers indicated below: d) order the person in charge of the treatment that the processing operations comply with the provisions of this Regulation, when proceed, in a certain way and within a specified period; " The respondent must prove the inclusion of pertinent and adequate information to the treatment of data derived from email with informative use to its members, and inform of the modality and form by which it would be carried out. Article 83.5 b) of the RGPD, considers that the infringement of "the rights of the interested parties According to articles 12 to 22 "" is punishable, "with administrative fines of € 20,000,000 maximum or, in the case of a company, an amount equivalent to 4% as a maximum of the total annual global business volume of the previous financial year, opting for the highest amount ”. III Regarding the dissemination given to the e-mails that are the subject of a complaint, article 5 of the RGPD is- establishes the principles that must govern the processing of personal data and mentions between- among them that of "integrity and confidentiality". The aforementioned article points out that: "1. The personal data will be: C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.aepd.es 28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 10/14 (…) f) processed in such a way as to guarantee adequate security of personal data personal data, including protection against unauthorized or illegal processing and against its loss. accidental damage, destruction or damage, through the application of technical or organizational measures appropriate guidelines ('integrity and confidentiality') ”. (…) Article 5, duty of confidentiality, of Organic Law 3/2018, of 5/12, on Protection of Personal Data and guarantee of digital rights (hereinafter LOPDGDD), signal- which: "1. Those responsible and in charge of data processing as well as all the persons Those involved in any phase of this will be subject to the duty of confidentiality. referred to in article 5.1.f) of Regulation (EU) 2016/679. 2. The general obligation indicated in the previous section will be complementary to the duties of professional secrecy in accordance with its applicable regulations. 3. The obligations established in the previous sections will be maintained even when the relationship of the obliged with the person in charge or in charge of the treatment has ended. I lie". The documentation in the file offers clear indications that the respondent, violated article 5.1.f) of the RGPD, principle relating to treatment, in relation to article the 5 of the LOPGDD, duty of confidentiality, when sending emails without using the blind copy option. This duty of confidentiality, or duty of secrecy, must be understood as having the purpose of It is important to avoid data leaks not being consented to by the owners of the themselves, in this case, the email addresses of the brothers. Therefore, this duty of confidentiality is an obligation that falls not only on the respondent member and in charge of the treatment, but to anyone who intervenes in any phase of the treatment and complementary to the duty of professional secrecy. The same complainant has indicated that the incident that gave rise to the complaint was motivated by vada by incorrectly sending emails to members of the Brotherhood, since the person who managed it involuntarily and accidentally must have sent as "Bcc" (where each recipient cannot see the other recipients), in instead of "To" (where each recipient can see the other recipients). Article 83.5 a) of the RGPD, considers that the infringement of “the basic principles for the treatment, including the conditions for consent in accordance with articles 5, 6, 7 and 9 ”is punishable, in accordance with section 5 of the aforementioned article 83 of the aforementioned RGPD, “with administrative fines of a maximum of € 20,000,000 or, in the case of a company dam, of an amount equivalent to a maximum of 4% of the total annual turnover overall for the previous financial year, opting for the highest amount ”. On the other hand, the LOPDGDD, for prescription purposes, in its article 72 indicates: “Violations considered very serious: C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.aepd.es 28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 11/14 1. In accordance with the provisions of article 83.5 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, considered very serious and will prescribe after three years the infractions that suppose a violation substantial declaration of the articles mentioned therein and, in particular, the following: a) The processing of personal data violating the principles and guarantees established two in article 5 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679. (…) " IV Also the conduct of sending emails to third parties violates article 32 of the RGPD "Security of the treatment", which establishes: "1. Taking into account the state of the art, the costs of application, and the nature of lence, scope, context and purposes of the treatment, as well as risks of probability and variable severity for the rights and freedoms of natural persons, the person responsible and the person in charge of the treatment will apply appropriate technical and organizational measures to guarantee a level of security appropriate to the risk, which, where appropriate, includes, among others: a) pseudonymisation and encryption of personal data; b) the ability to guarantee confidentiality, integrity, availability and resilience permanent maintenance of treatment systems and services; c) the ability to restore the availability and access to personal data of quickly in the event of a physical or technical incident; d) a process of regular verification, evaluation and assessment of the effectiveness of the technical and organizational measures to guarantee the security of the treatment. 2. When evaluating the adequacy of the security level, particular attention will be paid to take into account the risks that the data processing presents, in particular as a consequence of the destruction, loss or accidental or illegal alteration of personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed, or unauthorized communication or access to said data. 3. Adherence to a code of conduct approved in accordance with article 40 or to a certification authority approved pursuant to article 42 may serve as an element to determine show compliance with the requirements established in section 1 of this article. 4. The person in charge and the person in charge of the treatment will take measures to guarantee that any person acting under the authority of the controller or processor and has access to personal data can only process said data following instructions from the res- responsible, unless required to do so under Union or State law members". The RGPD defines personal data security violations as “all those security breaches resulting in accidental destruction, loss or alteration or illicit personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed, or the communication unauthorized access or access to said data ”. From the documentation provided to the file, evidence that the respondent has violated the ar- C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.aepd.es 28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 12/14 Article 32 of the RGPD, when a security incident occurs in your system allowing the access to personal data, email addresses, when sent without using the blind copy option allowing the rest of the recipients to access the addresses of the other recipients of the communication with breach of the established technical and security measures. The respondent, on 09/30/2019, upon observing the remission of the second email, immediately realized diata to all recipients so that they were aware of said incident. It points out that since then no emails have been sent in which they have been provided personal data to other recipients. It is proven that the defendant did not have adequate measures in place regarding the treatment of data in communications to associates of your entity, considering it accredited the commission of this offense. The violation of article 32 of the RGPD is referenced in article 83.4.a) of the cited GDPR in the following terms: "4. Violations of the following provisions will be sanctioned, in accordance with section 2, with administrative fines of a maximum of EUR 10 000 000 or, in the case of of a company, of an amount equivalent to a maximum of 2% of the turnover Global annual total for the previous financial year, opting for the highest amount: a) the obligations of the controller and the processor pursuant to articles 8, 11, 25 to 39, 42 and 43.
