The Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) imposed a warning on a Spanish public notary for infringing Article 13 GDPR by not offering the claimant relevant information when obtaining a copy of his national ID card to issue a certified copy of a document.

English Summary[edit | edit source]

Facts[edit | edit source]

The decision is the consequence of a complaint submitted by a Spanish citizen stating that, when he requested the defendant a copy of the deed corresponding to his house, the defendant required a copy of the national ID card of the claimant, but it did not offer him any information clauses regarding the circumstances of the data processing activity nor on the security measures used in order to keep the copy of the national ID card. The defendant promised that it would call the claimant to clarify such aspects, but this did not happen until two months later, when the defendant was newly required by the claimant. In that moment, the defendant sent the information clauses to the claimant, but it did not clarify any security measures; additionally, the defendant redirected the claimant to his data protection officer, who finally told the claimant that there was no need to inform him, with basis on Article 32 of the Spanish Law 10/2010 of April 28th on Money Laundering Prevention.

Dispute[edit | edit source]

The defendant answered to the first AEPD investigation requests (i) confirming that it did not offer the data protection information to the claimant until almost two months later, (ii) that it offered him the possibility of exercising his data rights, but that he only required a verification on the data protection information clause, that (iii) it considered that there was no need to inform the claimant on the basis of the money laundering legislation, and that (iv) the office of the defendant complied with the security measures specified at the ISO 27001, and it later added the following: (iv) a processing activities registry, the appointment of a DPO and the corresponding information clause at the invoices sent to its clients. The AEPD started the corresponding sanction procedure, and the defendant answered again insisting on the fact that public notaries are not obliged to offer data protection information based on the Spanish money laundering legislation.

Holding[edit | edit source]

Thus, the AEPD understood that the defendant has infringed Article 13 of the GDPR, as (i) it did not offer any data protection information to the claimant (not even the alleged exclusion concerning the money laundering legislation) until more than two months after the processing activity took place, and (ii) the money laundering legislation would not be really an exclusion, as it is only addressed to avoid information in cases in which the public notary is obliged to communicate the commission of a possible terrorism financing or money laundering offence to the SEPBLAC (the Spanish highest institution on money laundering issues), so Article 13 of the GDPR would be fully applicable to the processing activity. Consequently, the AEPD decided to impose a warning to the defendant and, additionally, required the defendant to include information clauses in any documents provided to its clients, within the period of one (1) month since this resolution.

                RESOLUTION OF SANCTIONING PROCEDURE


In the sanctioning procedure PS / 044/2020, instructed by the Spanish Agency for
Data Protection, to A.A.A., with NIF: *** NIF.1 (hereinafter, “the person
claimed ”), by virtue of the complaint presented by B.B.B., (hereinafter,“ the
claimant ”), and based on the following,
                                  BACKGROUND


FIRST: On 07/28/19, you had a written entry in this Agency, presented by
B.B.B., (hereinafter, “the claimant”), in which it stated, among others, the following:

"When I went to the notary to request a copy of the deed of my house, without informing

Regarding, they scanned my ID. When asked about how they protected that document,
They told me that they did not have the information but that they were taking my data and
they would call. I wanted to know about the security measures that were applied
because, if I had been informed, I would have given them a black and white photocopy. Two
months and a half later, as they had not contacted me, I sent them an email, in the
that they already show me the informative clauses, but they still do not inform me of how

they keep my ID. For security, I don't like having copies of my ID scanned to
good resolution and in color, so since they had not provided me with that
information, I insisted on it. They sent me to their DPD, with whom I have exchanged
emails, but ended up claiming that I did not need to be informed based on
to article 32 of Law 10/2010, of April 28, on the prevention of money laundering

capitals ”.

SECOND: In view of the facts set forth in the claim and the documents
provided by the claimant, the Subdirectorate General for Data Inspection proceeded
to carry out actions for its clarification, under the powers of

investigation granted to the control authorities in article 57.1 of the Regulation
(EU) 2016/679 (RGPD). Thus, dated 10/18/19, an informative request is addressed
to the claimed person.

THIRD: On 11/07/19, this Agency receives a letter from the Delegate of
Data Protection of the claimed Notary, in which, among others, it indicates:


“On August 7, 2018, the claimant went to the notarial office to
request a copy of the protocol of the former notary of that city, *** NOTARY. 1.
That on December 7, 2011 as a result of the retirement of the person
was a notary of this city *** NOTARY.1, Mr. *** NOTARY.2 received the

notarial protocol of the former for safekeeping.

That the claimant's DNI not being scanned, it was considered appropriate to carry out
your scan in accordance with money laundering legislation. For this it was taken into
consideration of the fact that it was an economic operation of the protocol to

position of Mr. *** NOTARY. 2 of which identification document was lacking.

That the claimant expressed his discrepancy regarding the applied tariff by placing a
claim for the invoice issued (Doc1) before the Consumer Service of the Board of

Andalusia (Doc2). The professional services invoice contains the data
basic information on data protection for the activity of the notarial office.


That on October 31, 2018 this notarial office provided the claimant with
additional information on data protection in relation to merited activity (doc3).

That in subsequent communications he stated that he was against the scanning of his
DNI or consider that they should be aware of the security measures applied:
“… Must do a risk analysis or DPIA and determine it, according to its criticality.

This gives me little confidence in the measures implemented, which is why you requested
information",

That subsequently, and after several calls from the claimant, the incident was reported
to the Data Protection Delegate of this notarial office.


That the DPD by email of December 18, 2018 (doc5) requested
specify the request for rights exercised by the claimant. The claimant does not
He answered, so the DPD reminded him on January 14, 2019 (doc6) that
The term of the procedure was extended by two more months to be able to attend his
petition.


That same day, the claimant replies alleging that “what I am asking is the verification of
that said information was provided to me ”(doc7).

That with all of the above and having fulfilled the Notarial Office with the duty of

information regarding customer activity it was considered necessary to focus the
issue in the Money Laundering activity. Consequently, the DPD reported
to the claimant dated February 7 (doc8) on the special circumstances
that have these treatments and therefore the impossibility of meeting your request.
Later, on February 11, he was informed again (doc9-10).


Regarding the control measures applied in this Notarial Office: They accept the
ISO 27001 standard. However, in relation to the Activity Register and its
legitimation in the treatment, the following measures have been adopted:

Consequently, the following measures were adopted: The Register of

In consideration of the nature of the Public Authority of Notaries and based on article 37.1 a)
of the European Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 was designated Dpd and

reported to the Registry of the Spanish Agency for Data Protection (Doc1).

It was agreed to implant legends in order to comply with the duty of information
of article 13 of European Regulation 2016/679. 4. A procedure was established
management of RGPD rights in the Notarial Office.


The measures were reviewed on March 19, 2019. They were agreed
recommendations to correct the deficiencies found and improve the proper
implantation. A data protection legend is included on the invoices for reason
of the "clients" activity.


The claimant was sent a copy of the additional information dated October 31
2018, in relation to customer activity and was informed and explained the
specific circumstances derived from the processing of data for the activity "laundering
Capital ”and therefore the exclusion of the duty of information.

FOURTH: In view of the denounced facts, of the documentation provided by

the parties and in accordance with the evidence available, the Inspection of
Data from this Spanish Agency for Data Protection considered that the action
of the claimed entity did not meet the conditions imposed by the regulations in force,
for which the opening of a sanctioning procedure proceeds. So dated
06/01/20, the Director of the AEPD, agreed to initiate a sanctioning procedure for the per-

claimed, by virtue of the powers established, for failing to comply with the provisions of
Article 13 of the RGPD, by NOT offering the necessary information to the claimant when
The DNI was required for scanning, punishable in accordance with the provisions of art.
83 of the aforementioned RGPD, with an initial sanction of "APERCIBIMIENTO".


FIFTH: Notified the initiation agreement, the claimed person, by writing of
dated 06/15/20, made, in summary, the following allegations:

On the lack of information in relation to the treatment derived from the scan of the DNI
Of the interested. My client, in compliance with article 30, has a Record of Ac-
Treatment activities. There are, among others, two different declared activities:


1. Clients: in order to proceed with the granting of the public document and proceed
der to your billing 2. Money Laundering: for the management and registration of obligations
tions derived in matter.


These activities are different and coincide with the files declared at the time
in accordance with Law 15/1999 on data protection and Ministerial orders
of its creation to the extent that they were public files: OM de Justicia
JUS / 484/2003 and Ministry of Economy Order EHA / 114/2008, of January 29.


The Agreement that we are challenging says that the duty of information of Article 13 was omitted
of Regulation 2016/679 when the claimant's DNI was scanned in order to give
compliance with the Law on the Prevention of Money Laundering and subsequently
when requested. It is true what the notified act says: the interested party was not informed

C / Jorge Juan, 6 www.aepd.es
28001 - Madrid sedeagpd.gob.es 4/12








of the money laundering activity of the *** NOTARY. 2. However and how I know
You will see, there is no legal obligation to inform about the data processing in case of
money laundering.


We note that the interested party was informed in relation to the activity of "clients"
as stated in the file.

The Agreement to Initiate the Penalty Procedure forgets some information that would have
allowed the correct qualification of the facts of this procedure:


1. The notary is bound by the Money Laundering Prevention Law: ar-
Title 2.1 n) Obliged subjects: “notaries”.

2. The notary as a subject bound by Regulation 2016/679 creates his Registry of

Activities. Following the criteria of the AGPD, it makes use of the file created by the Or-
den EHA / 114/2008, of January 29, regulating compliance with certain
obligations of notaries in the field of prevention of money laundering and
This is how the "Money Laundering" treatment activity has been declared.

3. Art 32.3 of Law 10/2010 of April 28 states that: “By virtue of the provisions of the

Article 24.1, and in relation to the obligations referred to in the preceding paragraph
rior, the obligation to provide information will not apply to data processing
in article 5 of Organic Law 15/1999. Likewise, they will not apply to the
les and treatments referred to in this precept the norms contained in the
aforementioned Organic Law regarding the exercise of rights of access, rectification,

cancellation and opposition. In case of exercise of the aforementioned rights by the interested party
do, the obliged subjects shall limit themselves to making clear the provisions of this article
ass".

4. On the obligation to make copies to the DNI: Art 28. 2. Laundering Regulation

of Capitals “The obligated subjects will store the copies of the authentic documents
formal identification clients on optical, magnetic or electronic media "

5. On the term of conservation of the DNI: Art 29.1 Regulation of Laundering of
Capitals: “The obligated subjects will keep the documents and keep records
of all business relationships and operations, national and international,

final, for a period of ten years from the termination of the relationship… ”.

Therefore, in compliance with the legal obligation of article 32 of Law 10/2010, no
informed the interested party of the data processing.


It has been proven that in the communication of October 31, 2018, the
interested in the peculiarities of the processing of personal data at the headquarters of
money laundering.

Regarding the official status of the Notary Public and part of the Public Administration: It says

the website of the Ministry of Justice: “The Notary, once he obtains the title and takes
session of its Notary, will have in the district to which it corresponds the character of function-
public authority and authority in everything that affects the service of the notarial function, with
the rights granted for such purposes by the Law ”.

The OM Justice JUS / 484/2003 says: “… Notaries, Notaries Associations and the Con-
General Council of Notaries present specialties in relation to the exercise of
other professions subject to membership, highlighting the character of public official
co of its members and of the Public Administration dependent on the Administration
General of the State, through the General Directorate of Registries and Notaries. "


Moreover, the TCl says that notaries are part of the public function of the State. So,

Likewise, in Sentence 4/2014, of January 16, 2014, the High Court says: “Appli-

The State is responsible for directing mandatory orders or instructions to

Law 3/2018 on the protection of personal data.

The initiation Agreement is erred by not respecting the regime provided for in article 77 of the Law

2/2018 especially in its section 2 when it says:

"When the managers or managers listed in section 1 commit any-
one of the offenses referred to in articles 72 to 74 of this organic law.
ca, the competent data protection authority shall issue a sanction resolution

warning them with warning. The resolution will also establish the
measures to be taken to stop the conduct or correct the effects of the
offense that was committed. The resolution will be notified to the person responsible or
charged with the treatment, to the body on which it depends hierarchically, where appropriate, and to
those affected who have the status of interested party, where appropriate ”.


The notary public official status and his integration into the
the State Administration and, therefore, we cannot accept the allusion, as it intimidates
toria, of the Commencement Agreement when it says that “This offense may be sanctioned with
a maximum fine of € 20,000,000… ”.


Fourth: That the Resolution of June 2, 2020, of the General Directorate of Seguri-
Legal entity and Public Faith, the Ministry of Justice notifies in the Official Gazette of the
date of June 8, 2020, the retirement of the notary (Doc No. 2).

in accordance with current legislation on money laundering ”. As stated in the
Claimant's announcement, “when asking the reason why the DNI was scanned, NO

received no adequate reply, informing him only that they would be in contact
with him to inform him conveniently ”.
