The new Spanish Data Protection Act 2018
In November 2018 Spanish Parliament adopted the new data protection act with a 93% positive vote. It adapts the Spanish legal framework to the General Data Protection Regulation and develops its topics.
The Spanish Data Protection Agency issued a press release on the contents of the new Act. It further regulates issues like the rights of data subjects. For example it demands that the means to exercise such rights are easy to access.
It also regulates in more detail the right to be forgotten, for example, there is no obligation to suppress such data when they had been obtained through a third person who processed them for domestic or personal activities.
