The Spanish DPA (AEPD) held that a mayor was the controller for personal data shared on their personal Facebook page, and not the City Council, because the former decided on the purposes and means alone.
The data subject was party to a workplace harassment suit against the mayor and lodged a complaint with the Spanish DPA (AEPD) after the mayor posted the unredacted court decision on his personal Facebook page, in combination with other personal data concerning the data subject.
The mayor claimed the posting of the data subject’s personal data was covered by Article 6(1)(f) as a legal basis.
In their investigation, the DPA assessed whether the City Council was a controller or joint-controller for the data, and thus could be party to the complaint.
In its decision, the DPA highlighted that the City Council was the owner of the files containing personal data related to development of labour relations. However, the DPA emphasized that a distinction must be made between the processing carried out by the City Council and the individuals who act on their instructions, and individuals who belongs to the City Council but act independently.
With that in mind, the DPA concluded that the City Council did not determine the purposes and means of the processing of personal data on the mayor's Facebook page. As such, the DPA declared that the City Council was not responsible for the alleged infringement of Article 6(1)(f).

RIGHTS OF LAW I Under the powers that Article 58.2 of the GDPR recognizes each authority of control, and as established in arts. 47 and 48.1 of the LOPDGDD, the Director of the Spanish Agency for Data Protection is competent to resolve this procedure. II To analyze the infringement charged, we start from the principle of publicity of the judicial proceedings, constitutionalized by art. 120.1 CE, and to which reference is made in different precepts of the Organic Law of the Judiciary (articles 232, 234, 235 and 266.1). Article 232 LOPJ states " 1 The judicial proceedings shall be public, with the exceptions established by the laws of procedure. 2. Exceptionally, for reasons of public order and protection of rights and liberties, Judges and Courts, may by reasoned resolution limit the scope of advertising and agree on the secret nature of all or part of the actions ". Article 234 LOPJ prescribes " The Secretaries and competent personnel of the Courts and Tribunals will provide interested parties how much information they request about the status of legal proceedings, which they may examine and know, unless they are or would have been declared secret according to the law. In the same cases, the testimonies requested, with the expression of the addressee, except in cases where the law provide otherwise . " Article 235 LOPJ refers to access by interested parties to books, files and judicial records that are not reserved and article 266 indicates that will allow any interested party access to the sentence text. The STS of March 3, 1995, appeal 1218/1991, states in relation to the publicity of judicial proceedings ".. that the right and correlative duty of knowledge and access to the text of court decisions is graduated based on three various areas or spheres of involvement, each governed by various criteria, namely: a) one of maximum amplitude or generalized affectation, which includes the public or citizens in general, without specific qualification and that corresponds to the publicity of the judicial proceedings developed in all kinds of processes, which allows those go to the practice of errands that must take place "at a public hearing", except for the Reservation statement that the court organizes by reason, principle of constitutionalized advertising in art. 120.1 of the Fundamental Standard and which includes art. 232.1 of the Organic Law. b) at the opposite extreme, of maximum restriction of the scope of knowledge of the judicial decisions, are the acts of notification and communication of these, directed only to those who have the status of procedural part under the laws of procedure, and that as regards the sentences determine the right and correlative duty of the Judges and Courts to their knowledge through the instrumental act of notification, as prescribed by art. 270 LOPJ. c) occupying an intermediate position that places the issue in a more imprecise scope, find the procedural actions already completed, including sentences, integrated into books, archives or judicial records, and in respect of which, on the one hand, art. 235 LOPJ determines that: «the interested parties will have access to the books, archives and judicial records that are not reserved, through the forms of exhibition, testimony or certification established by law » Regarding the quality of the interested party for the purposes described, it is specified in the said judgment that " the legitimate interest that is enforceable in the case, can only be recognized in whom, natural or legal person, manifests and accredits, at least prima facie, before the judicial body, a connection of concrete and singular character well with the object of the process and, therefore, of the sentence that ended it in the instance, either with any of the procedural acts through which it has been developed and which are documented in autos, connection that, on the other hand, is subject to two conditions: a) that does not affects fundamental rights of the procedural parties or of those who in some way have intervened in the process, to essentially safeguard the right to personal and family privacy and intimacy, honor and the right to self image that it could eventually affect those people; and b) that if the information is used, as a mediating activity, to satisfy the rights or interests of third parties, and in consequence acquires, as is the case, an aspect of globality or generality by relationship not to a specific process, such interest remains within the scope of the legal system and its applicators, in general, as otherwise it would be as well as making the judicial body participant or collaborator in tasks or activities that, by very lawful they may be, they undermine their jurisdictional function » .." The doctrine established in said judgment has been reiterated in the SSTS of 22 of May 1996 and April 6, 2001, resource 9448/1996. Also the SAN (1st) of November 29, 2001, resource 531/2000 echoes the doctrine set by the aforementioned STS of March 3, 1995, and states that " the data contained in books and judicial records they are not publicly available entirely free and indiscriminate since access to them is regulated and in certain restricted measure. On the one hand, by the appeal made by the aforementioned articles 235 and 2666.1 of the Organic Law of the Judiciary on the condition of "interested", of whose significance and scope we already know the jurisprudential interpretation. On the other hand, because access to such books and files is mediated by the necessary intervention of the Judicial Secretary and the mandatory subject to the application process and authorization regulated in Articles 1 to 5 of Regulation 5/1995, of June 7, of the General Council of Power Judicial, on accessory aspects of judicial proceedings . " That is, and for what we are interested in here, the publicity of the judicial proceedings does not means that the data contained in a judicial proceeding that is in the phase of execution, can be examined and are available to the general public of totally free and indiscriminate, but that advertising is restricted except those actions held in public hearing to those who hold the condition of "interested parties", to which article 234 LOPJ appeals. This concept of interested, not it necessarily coincides with that of the procedural part and which has been outlined by the jurisprudence in the sense described above. To finish with the examination of jurisprudence and regulations on this matter It should be noted that the jurisprudential criteria set forth is consistent with the position maintained by the Civil Chamber of the Supreme Court when weighting the publicity of the sen- you had the right to honor, establishing in your judgment of December 22, 2008 the next: “The publicity of judgments constitutes an instrument of guarantee of independence. decision of the courts and their performance according to law, as these principles are reinforced by knowledge of the actions of the courts by citizens, and should be considered closely linked to the protection of fundamental rights inherent in the exercise of jurisdictional power by judges and courts. This advertising can only be restricted or limited, as established in the law, when it may entail the impairment of a fundamental right of citizens give us affected or a constitutionally protected good, especially when the knowledge of the private data contained in the judgment may lead to the disclosure of aspects of privacy that should be protected, provided that This disclosure is not protected by the right to information within the framework of the Free public munication proper to a democratic society. In effect, according to STC 57/2004, of April 19, FJ 5 (in the same sense, pecto of the publication of the sentences of the Constitutional Court, ATC 516/2004, of 20 December, FJ 1, and STC 114/2006, FJ 7), the principles of weighting and proportional- can lead to the conclusion that other fundamental rights or property with Constitutional protection must take precedence over the publicity of judgments Cial This principle is applied by article 266.1 II LOPJ, introduced by LO 19/2003, of December 23, according to which «[e] l access to the text of the sentences, or from finished ends thereof, may be restricted when it could affect the right to privacy, the rights of people who require a special duty of guardianship or the guarantee of anonymity of the victims or injured parties, when appropriate it gives, as well as, in general, to prevent sentences from being used with nes contrary to the laws. When the publication of a judicial resolution may affect the honor of the person na that has obtained an unfavorable result in the process, it is necessary to determine whether The exception that the LPDH establishes in the sense of considering non-existent the violation ration of the scope protected by this right when it is the product of the exercise of a right recognized by the legal system (art. 2.2 LPDH: «The existence of illegitimate interference in the protected area when expressly authorized by law"). The contrast between the right to honor and the right to publicize the content of the judgment, which results from the principle of publicity, should result in a weighting in the that the fulfillment of the institutional purposes that the Advertising principle pursues. This aspect, in turn, requires taking into account the ma in which the publication has been produced, taking into account whether it is a communication neutral citation of the content of the sentence or if elements that are sus- tained are added or subtracted likely to distort the objective knowledge of the court's decision to convert the publication of the judgment in a procedure suitable to undermine the honor of the person concerned tada, beyond what objectively implies in the field of reputation the failure of an action or opposition held before the courts of justice. Well, it is clear that the principle of publicity of sentences that contain templa our LOPJ is not absolute, but finds limits, either by referring to who hold the status of interested parties or because of the prevalence of other rights or goods that enjoy constitutional protection, as with the right to protection of data, the latter issue that has been examined in the foundation of previous law. Finally, it should be noted that the constitutional doctrine contained in the STC 114/2006, of April 5, only confirms what has been exposed so far, because in it the Tri- Constitutional bunal is limited to extract from a joint reading of articles 120 and 164.1 EC and Articles 86.2 and 99.2 LOTC - in its wording prior to the reform operated by the Organic Law 6/2007, of May 24-, placed in relation to Articles 9.1 CE and 5.1 LOPJ, a constitutional requirement for maximum dissemination and publicity of the full content of the jurisdictional resolutions of that Court that incorporate constitutional doctrine, which it is specified, on the one hand, in the formal obligation to publish such resolutions in the Official Gazette, and in a material obligation to give greater accessibility and public dissemination to their content, regardless of their nature and the process in which they dictate and, on the other, in that the publicity and diffusion has to affect the entire resolution. It is significant that for this the Constitutional Court is especially supported in art. 164.1 CE establishes, which preaches it establishes, beyond even the principle general publicity of judicial proceedings and their resolutions of art. 120 CE, one specific constitutional requirement for maximum dissemination and publicity of legal resolutions of this Court. Moreover, it highlights the nuances that differentiate the principle of publicity from sentences. Cias of the Constitutional Court of the judgments of the Judiciary, by limiting the Applicability to that of the regime established in this regard by the LOPJ, stating the following: “Being evident that the possibility itself, foreseen in art. 266.1 LOPJ, to restrict total- mind the access to the text of a Judgment could be problematic, as far as to the Constitutional Judgments, thanks to the obligation of their formal publication in the Bo- Official Latvian, provided for in both art. 164.1 CE as in art. 86.2 LOTC, and that, even, the The possibility of omitting the identification of the parties involved in the process may result tar, usually, much more exceptional in constitutional processes than in pro judicial dismissals, thanks to the material obligation, derived from the arts. 164.1 CE and 99.2 LOTC, to ensure maximum dissemination of the jurisdictional resolutions of this Tax- nal; the art. 266.1 LOPJ in conjunction with the aforementioned art. 6.4 LOPD, in any case, can serve of reference element both in establishing the need for the decision on the restriction of the publicity of the parties involved in the constitutional process it is done by making an individual weighting of the constitutional interests concu- managers in the case with which the advertising principle may conflict, as in Regarding what are the interests that may be prevalent, singularly the right to privacy, the rights of those who require a special guardianship, the guarantee of anonymity, where appropriate, of victims and victims, and the avoidance of said data being used for purposes contrary to the Laws. Throughout In this case, special emphasis should be made that the literal wording of art. 266.1 LOPJ does not imply a limitation of the fundamental rights and constitutional guarantees with which they can the constitutional principle of maximum diffusion of the re- jurisdictional solutions of the Constitutional Court, whenever any right damental or constitutional guarantee is likely to be weighted with respect to the possibility It is possible to make exceptions to that principle, including, of course, the fundamental right as provided in art. 18.4 CE in the terms and with the breadth and autonomy that has been recognized by this Court in STC 292/2000, of November 30, in its foundations legal coughs 5 and 6 ”. Therefore, again this doctrine redirects the controversial issue to the interest weighting. The claims of the defendant, although it can be understood in an accusing tone, they do not suggest a response outside the law by presenting the sentence on the social network integra, treatment not legitimized according to the regulations in force in the circumstances given. III Article 4.2, .7 and .10 of the GDPR states: “ For the purposes of this Regulation, understand by: 2) treatment »: any operation or set of operations performed on data personal or personal data sets, either by automated procedures or no, such as collection, registration, organization, structuring, conservation, adaptation or modification, extraction, consultation, use, communication by transmission, dissemination or any other means of enabling access, collation or interconnection, limitation, suppression or destruction; 7) "responsible for the treatment" or "responsible": the natural or legal person, authority, service or other body that, alone or together with others, determines the purposes and means of treatment; Whether the law of the Union or of the Member States determines the purposes and means of the treatment, the person responsible for the treatment or the criteria specific for their appointment may be established by the law of the Union or of the Member states; 10) "third party" means a natural or legal person, authority, service or body other than interested, the person in charge of the treatment, the person in charge of the treatment and the persons authorized to process personal data under the direct authority of the responsible or manager ; ” The making available through the FACEBOOK platform of the inter- gra containing personal data of the claimant, a partner of this and the Circumstances surrounding the case, visible to anyone, to third parties, imply call to the CITY COUNCIL of RIBADEDEVA for a violation of article 6. 1, f) of the GDPR for data processing through an automated means, which through the Social network allows you to add or upload documents, such as the sentence. It is observed that without the intermediation of the social network platform there would be no Access and knowledge of the data contained in the sentence were possible. The Town Hall ment is the owner of files that contain personal data among others Swim with the development of labor relations. However, in this case, it does not appear that the City Council had intervened in in any way in the setting of means or ends of the treatment nor can it be said that *** TO.1 will officially act as spokesperson or person in charge of the treatment of that one but that *** POSITION. 1 as the holder of the judgment document, in a private medium as it was his FACEBOOK page fully presented the sentence. Even if I did it to answer der to the claims of the claimant, who did not expressly mention the name of *** POSITION 1 , was displayed on the BBB website, and not on the City Council. They have of differentiating therefore the treatments carried out by the City Council and the physical persons cas that act within their bosom according to the instructions given, of which they still belong denying their structure they deal with them regardless of the instructions given or in own benefit. Although in the page of FACEBOOK in which the sentence was exposed, indicated its condition of *** POSITION.1 , it is characteristic of *** POSITION.1 , not as such condition, but on a private basis. In this case, the responsibility for the use of it is of said per- sound physical as responsible for the treatment, not the City Council. Article 28 of Law 40/2015, of 1/10, on the legal regime of the public sector is tablece: “1 . They may only be sanctioned for acts constituting an administrative infraction. natural and legal persons, as well as, when a Law recognizes their ability to act, affected groups, unions and entities without legal personality and independent or autonomous assets that are responsible for them in title of fraud or guilt . ” The conduct that consists in making reference, in a social network, created web page and powered by BBB , personal data should be considered as data processing, which In accordance with the technical and computer procedures they imply performing the operations ne- required to make its content accessible to people who are connected to In- ternet, through the FACEBOOK platform, these operations being carried out Automated The principles of the field of criminal law applicable, with certain nuances, in the administrative penalty area, and in accordance with the proven facts, having been more admitted by BBB that exposed the sentence in defense of attacks The claimant's statements were not possible, it is not possible to charge the infraction to the City Council and declare that he has committed it. Since the facts that gave rise to the claim occur on *** DATE 1 and by their severity, they are not prescribed, so we will proceed to initiate proceedings against the BBB person Therefore, in accordance with applicable law, the Director of the Spanish Agency for Data Protection RESOLVES: FIRST: DECLARE, in accordance with the provisions of article 90.1 of the LPCAP the non-existence of responsibility for the CITY COUNCIL OF RIBADEDEVA ( *** POSITION 1 ) in the infringement of article 6.1.f) of the GDPR.
