It responds to the acronym Organic Law on Data Protection, which was repealed by the current Organic Law 3/2018, of December 5, on the Protection of Personal Data and guarantee of digital rights. If we talk about data protection in Spain, the standard of reference is the LOPDGDD.
According to article 18 of the Spanish Constitution “The Law will limit the use of information technology to guarantee the honor and personal and family privacy of citizens and the full exercise of their rights”, forcing all organizations, companies and people to meet a series of requirements and to take the appropriate measurementss depending on the type of data they possess. The Spanish Data Protection Agency was created from the launch of this law.
The objective of the LOPDGDD is to adapt Spanish legislation to European regulations to make companies and organizations have a greater commitment to the processing of personal data and files and regulate data protection.
In summary, it represents the fundamental right of all people to avoid that through the processing of our data they can violate our privacy and fundamental rights.
