The Spanish DPA issued a warning to Iberia Líneas Aéreas de España for not informing their workers in accordance with Article 13 GDPR regarding a fingerprint clock-in system.

English Summary[edit | edit source]

Facts[edit | edit source]

Iberia Líneas Aéreas de España installed a new fingerprint clock-in system for their workers. They did it following the guidance of the General Labour Confederation. However, Iberia did not inform their workers about the aspects of the general information duty included in Article 13 GDPR.

Dispute[edit | edit source]

Is this a violation of Article 13 GDPR?

Holding[edit | edit source]

The AEPD held that there had been a violation of Article 13. According to the Spanish authority, Iberia should have informed their workers about all the relevant aspects included in Article 13, informing in a clear, concise and complete way about the legal basis that allow such processing and about the rest of the relevant information, specially taking into account that the personal data involved are biometric data from Article 9.

The AEPD took also into account the fact that Iberia offered information regarding the processing in their privacy policy since 2018 and, mainly, that they issued a communication to their workers regarding the processing of biometric data in October 2020. Because all of this, the AEPD imposed solely a warning on Iberia.

                            FOUNDATIONS OF LAW

       The Director of the Agency is competent to resolve this procedure
Spanish Data Protection, in accordance with the provisions of art. 58.2 of
RGPD and in art. 47 and 48.1 of LOPDGDD.


       The legitimacy for the treatment of the fingerprint for the control of the
workers by the employer we must look for it in article 9 and 6 of the RGPD.

       Article 9 of the RGPD establishes in its sections 1 and 2.b) the following:

       "one. The processing of personal data that reveal the origin is prohibited
ethnic or racial, political opinions, religious or philosophical convictions, or

       Member States or a collective agreement under the law of the
       Member States to establish adequate guarantees of respect for the
       fundamental rights and interests of the interested party. "

       Article 6.1.b) of the RGPD indicates:

       "one. The treatment will only be lawful if at least one of the following is met


       b) the treatment is necessary for the performance of a contract in which the
       interested is part or for the application at the request of this of measures
       pre-contractual. "

       The defendant has legitimacy, based on the indicated regulations, to
carry out the labor control of its workers and as long as it meets the requirements

indicated in the fifth Law Foundation.

       The facts that motivate the claim presented and that are the subject of the
This procedure is materialized in the request made by the claimant to the

claimed in relation to the implementation of a new access system and the
Obligation to duly inform workers.

       The facts claimed imply the violation of what is stated in article 13
of the RGPD, by not duly informing of the planned treatment in relation to the

fingerprint check-in control, in accordance with the pronouncements
established in the aforementioned article.

       This article determines the information that must be provided to the interested party in the
moment of the collection of your data, establishing the following:

       "Article 13. Information that must be provided when personal data is
obtained from the interested party.

        reference to adequate or appropriate guarantees and means of obtaining
        a copy of these or the fact that they have been loaned.

        2. In addition to the information mentioned in section 1, the person responsible for the
treatment will facilitate the interested party, at the time the data is obtained
personal information, the following information necessary to guarantee data processing
loyal and transparent:

        a) the period during which the personal data will be kept or, when not
        where possible, the criteria used to determine this deadline;
        b) the existence of the right to request the data controller for access

will provide the interested party, prior to said further processing, information
on that other purpose and any additional relevant information pursuant to section 2.

        4. The provisions of sections 1, 2 and 3 shall not apply when and in
the extent to which the interested party already has the information ”.

        In the present case, the claimant declares to write to the defendant
requesting that workers be duly informed before the collection of
fingerprints for the implementation of a new time control system, without

that any answer was obtained.

        However, the documentation provided to the file contains the answer
offered to the claimant, as stated in the second precedent, stating that

C / Jorge Juan, 6
28001 - Madrid 6/12

the replacement of the established system by the use of the limited fingerprint
exclusively to the airport ramp area and the workers who there
they worked implied a lawful, adequate and secure treatment of personal data

sensitive parties involved and that it had informed through its privacy policy to
through the intranet.

       In relation to the issues raised in this case, first of all
It should be noted that the implementation of a time control system based on the
fingerprint by the employer, must be informed to employees of

complete, clear, concise manner and, in addition, the aforementioned information must be completed
with reference to both the legal bases that cover this type of control of
access, as well as the basic information referred to in article 13 of the

       In the case under review, although the response of the respondent to the writing is counted
presented by the claimant stating that the system to be implemented was safe and
relevant, both the information transmitted by the respondent and the system
used to communicate the access and time control system is not the most
adequate given the quality and specialty of the data that was requested, being able to
have made a greater effort in its information policy on the

planned treatment, formulating it in a much more detailed and complete way,
as well as responding to certain casuistry such as the cases of workers who are
they will refuse to provide their fingerprint.

       However, it should be noted that the entity in the allegations to the agreement of

initiation of the procedure provided a complementary communication aimed at the
employees Informative Note on the processing of biometric data through
fingerprint recognition or facial recognition systems for the
access control, in accordance with the regulations on the protection of
data and, likewise, the mandatory impact assessment relative to the

data protection regulated in article 35 of the RGPD, providing the document

       Secondly, it should be noted that the installation of a
control based on the collection and treatment of the employee's fingerprint
implies the processing of your personal data since personal data is all

that information about an identified or identifiable natural person of
in accordance with article 4.1 of the RGPD.

       As for the fingerprint, it is also data that must be
classified as biometric data and in accordance with article 4.14 of the RGPD have

this consideration when they have been “obtained from a technical treatment
specific, relating to the physical, physiological or behavioral characteristics of a
natural person that allow or confirm the unique identification of said person,
such as facial images or fingerprint data ”.

       This means that, in accordance with article 9.1 of the RGPD, in the case
present, the specific regime provided for special categories is applied to them
of data provided for in article 9 of the RGPD.

C / Jorge Juan, 6
28001 - Madrid 7/12

       In this sense, recital 51 of the RGPD highlights the nature of
restrictive with which the processing of these data can be admitted:

       “(51) ... Such personal data should not be processed, unless it is allowed
its treatment in specific situations contemplated in this Regulation,
given that Member States may lay down provisions
specific data protection in order to adapt the application of the
rules of this Regulation to the fulfillment of a legal obligation or to the
fulfillment of a mission carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of powers

public conferred to the person responsible for the treatment. In addition to the requirements
specific to that treatment, the general principles and other
rules of this Regulation, especially with regard to the conditions of
legality of the treatment. Exceptions to the
general prohibition of treatment of these special categories of personal data,

among other things when the interested party gives their explicit consent or in the case of
specific needs, in particular when the treatment is carried out in the
framework of legitimate activities by certain associations or foundations whose
The objective is to allow the exercise of fundamental freedoms.

       And recital 52 indicates that

       “(52) Likewise, exceptions to the prohibition to treat
special categories of personal data when established by the Law of the
Union or Member States and provided that appropriate guarantees are given, in order to
to protect personal data and other fundamental rights, when it is in the interest

public, in particular the processing of personal data in the field of legislation
labor law, legislation on social protection, including pensions and for the purposes of
safety, supervision and health alert, prevention or control of diseases
communicable and other serious threats to health ... "

       In accordance with these considerations, the processing of biometric data from
special categories will require, in addition to the concurrence of one of the bases
legal provisions established in article 6 of the RGPD, any of the exceptions provided
in article 9.2 of the RGPD.

       The analysis of the legal basis of legitimacy to carry out this treatment comes

of article 6 of the RGPD, regarding the legality of the treatment, which in its section 1, letter
b) states: “The treatment will be lawful if at least one of the following is met
conditions: (…) b) the treatment is necessary for the execution of a contract in the
that the interested party is part of or for the application at his request of measures
pre-contractual (…) ”.

       By virtue of this precept, the treatment would be lawful and would not require the
consent, when the data processing is carried out for the fulfillment of
contractual relationships of a labor nature.

       On the other hand, and as highlighted in recital 51 of the same RGPD,
insofar as biometric data is of a special category in the cases
of biometric identification (art. 9.1 RGPD), it will be necessary for one of the
the exceptions provided in article 9.2 of the RGPD that would allow lifting the

C / Jorge Juan, 6
28001 - Madrid 12/8

general prohibition of the treatment of these types of data established in the article

       At this point, special mention must be made of letter b) of article 9.2 of the
RGPD, according to which the general prohibition of biometric data processing does not
it will be applied when “the treatment is necessary for the fulfillment of
obligations and the exercise of specific rights of the person responsible for the treatment or
of the interested party in the field of labor law and social security and protection,
to the extent authorized by the Union law of the Member States or

a collective agreement in accordance with the law of the Member States that establishes
adequate guarantees of respect for fundamental rights and the interests of the

       In Spanish law, article 20 of the Consolidated Text of the Statute of

workers (TE), approved by Royal Legislative Decree 2/2015, of 23
October, foresees the possibility for the employer to adopt surveillance measures and
control to verify compliance with the labor obligations of their

       "3. The employer may adopt the measures he deems most appropriate in

surveillance and control to verify compliance by the worker with his obligations
and labor duties, keeping in their adoption and application the consideration due to
their dignity and taking into account, where appropriate, the actual capacity of the workers
with disabilities ”.

       The possibility of using data-based systems is undeniable
biometric to carry out access and time control, although it does not seem
that is or should be the only system that can be used: thus the use of cards
personal codes, the use of personal codes, the direct visualization of the
marking, etc., which may constitute, by themselves or in combination with any of the

the other systems available, equally effective measures to carry out the

       In any case, prior to the decision on the start-up
of such a control system and taking into account its implications,
processing of biometric data aimed at uniquely identifying a

natural person, it would be mandatory to carry out an impact assessment regarding the
protection of personal data to evaluate both the legitimacy of the
treatment and its proportionality as the determination of the existing risks and
the measures to mitigate them in accordance with the provisions of article 35 RGPD.

       In the present case, it must be stated that the entity has accredited the
mandatory impact assessment related to data protection regulated in the
Article 35 of the RGPD, providing the corresponding document, since the
09/13/2019 presented the document Impact Evaluation of the treatment carried out


C / Jorge Juan, 6
28001 - Madrid 9/12

        On the other hand, biometric data is closely linked to a
person, since they can use a certain unique property of an individual
for your identification or authentication.

        According to Opinion 3/2012 on the evolution of biometric technologies,
“Biometric data irrevocably changes the relationship between the body and the
identity, as they make the characteristics of the human body legible
by machines and are subject to further use. "

        In relation to them, the Opinion specifies that it is possible to distinguish different types of
treatments by stating that “Biometric data can be processed and stored in
different ways. Sometimes the biometric information captured from a person is
stored and treated raw, allowing the source from which it came to be recognized without
special knowledge; for example, a photograph of a face, a photograph of a

fingerprint or voice recording. Other times, raw biometric information
captured is treated in such a way that only certain characteristics or traits are extracted and
they are saved as a biometric template. "

        The processing of these data is expressly permitted by the RGPD
when the employer has a legal basis, which is usually his own

Work contract. In this regard, the STS of July 2, 2007 (Rec. 5017/2003),
that he has understood the legitimate treatment of biometric data carried out by the
Administration for the time control of its public employees, without it being necessary
the prior consent of the workers.

        However, the following should be noted:

        O The worker must be informed about these treatments.

        O The principles of limitation of the purpose, necessity,

proportionality and data minimization.

        In any case, the treatment must also be adequate, pertinent and not
excessive in relation to that purpose. Therefore, biometric data other than
necessary for that purpose should be suppressed and creation will not always be justified.
of a biometric database (Opinion 3/2012 of the Art. 29 Working Group).

        O Use of biometric templates: Biometric data must be stored
as biometric templates whenever possible. The template should be taken from
a way that is specific to the biometric system in question and not used
by other data controllers of similar systems in order to ensure that

a person can only be identified in biometric systems that have
a legal basis for this operation.

        O The biometric system used and the security measures chosen must
ensure that reuse of the biometric data in question is not possible

for another purpose.

        O Mechanisms based on encryption technologies should be used, in order to
prevent unauthorized reading, copying, modification or deletion of biometric data.

C / Jorge Juan, 6
28001 - Madrid 10/12

       O Biometric systems should be designed so that they can be revoked
the identity bond.

       O You must choose to use data formats or specific technologies that
make it impossible to interconnect biometric databases and disclose data
not verified.

       O Biometric data should be deleted when they are not linked to the

purpose that motivated their treatment and, if possible, they should be implemented
automated data deletion mechanisms.

       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, in accordance with the
paragraph 5 of the aforementioned article 83 of the aforementioned Regulation, “with fines
administrative fees of € 20,000,000 maximum or, in the case of a company, a
an amount equivalent to a maximum of 4% of the total global annual business volume of the
previous financial year, opting for the one with the highest amount ”.

       The LOPDGDD in its article 71, Infractions, states that:

       “The acts and conducts referred to in the
paragraphs 4, 5 and 6 of article 83 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, as well as those that
are contrary to this organic law ”.

       The LOPDGDD in its article 72 indicates for the purposes of prescription: "Infractions
considered very serious:

       "one. Based on the provisions of article 83.5 of the Regulation (EU)

2016/679 are considered very serious and will prescribe after three years the infractions that
suppose a substantial violation of the articles mentioned in that and, in
in particular, the following:
       h) The omission of the duty to inform the affected party about the treatment of their
       personal data in accordance with the provisions of articles 13 and 14 of the

       Regulation (EU) 2016/679 and 12 of this organic law.
       (…) "

       The sanctioning procedure that concerns us shows that in the installation of

a new fingerprint attendance control system to be implemented had
been carried out without duly informing with all the guarantees indicated
in the data protection regulations, specifically in accordance with the provisions
in article 13 of the RGPD, being able to have incurred in the violation of the same.

       Therefore, the conduct of the defendant would constitute a violation of the provisions
in article 13 of the RGPD.

C / Jorge Juan, 6
28001 - Madrid 11/12

       On the other hand, the RGPD, without prejudice to the provisions of its article 83,
contemplates the possibility of resorting to the sanction of warning to correct the
processing of personal data that does not conform to your forecasts.

       Likewise, it is contemplated that the resolution issued will establish the measures
that is appropriate to adopt so that the conduct ceases, the effects of the offense are corrected
that had been committed, the adequacy of the information offered to users to the
requirements contemplated in article 13 of the RGPD, as well as the contribution of
Proof of compliance with what is required.

       However, it should be noted that in the allegations to the agreement to initiate the
In this procedure, the complainant has provided a copy of the communication made
to all workers and that it came to complement the information provided with

incidents such as the one that gave rise to the claim occur.

       Therefore, in accordance with the applicable legislation and assessed the criteria of
graduation of sanctions whose existence has been proven,

       The Director of the Spanish Data Protection Agency RESOLVES:
