The Organic Law on Data Protection (LOPD) and its Development Regulation. These are the Spanish regulations relating to the processing of personal data and the obligations that those responsible for any website must assume in the management of this information.

Processing of personal data

What is personal data?
Article 3 of the LOPD defines personal data as “any information concerning identified or identifiable natural persons”.

To this we must add the different information that, when collected, can lead to the identification of a specific person. These also constitute personal data.
The most obvious examples are a person’s name or ID card number, but an email address or even an IP address used at a certain point in time are also considered personal data.

Why is this data collected?
The collection of personal data on the Internet is simply unavoidable on any interactive site (with comments, contact forms, etc.).

The purposes for which this data is usually collected are five:

  • Enable a blog commenting system.
  • Allow you to contact us through our contact forms.
  • Create a list of email subscribers (members to whom we provide you with exclusive content and notify you of new blog posts and commercial promotions. In other words, a list with which we carry out email marketing activities.
  • Profiling (which consists of recording your purchases on the website and analysing them together with the information you have provided us with in order to offer you personalised advice on the products and services that best suit your interests).
  • Statistics and analysis for internal use on our customers’ preferences, products and activities.

What types of data are collected? Purpose and legitimacy
In general terms, the personal data collected are stored in a file for the sole purpose of sending electronic communications relating to the activity of the website.

The data collected are identifiable and correspond to a reasonable minimum in order to be able to carry out the activity carried out.

This means that they will be used for issues such as sending newsletters, notices of new articles and new comments on the blog, commercial offers, events and, in general, any information that we consider may be of interest to users.

The legitimacy for the collection of this data arises from the express consent that the user gives at any time by checking the box of acceptance of this privacy policy that appears in all places where personal data is collected.

This box is unchecked and until it is checked with an express action by the user, it is not possible to carry out the action in question (registration as a subscriber, sending comments, etc.).

We can collect six different types of personal data:

  • Name: in comments, contact forms or in purchases or subscriptions.
  • Address: required for physical delivery of products.
  • Email: in comments, contact forms and email list. Simply essential for us to be able to communicate with you.
  • IP address: the collection of this data is done intrinsically by the web structure. It is also a useful data to combat spam.
  • Specific interests: in our email list we try to segment the members as much as possible to know the specific interests within our subject matter.
  • Automations:

There are three types of automated processing on this website:

  • Subscriber registration process using different mailing tools.
  • Segmentation of the mailing list, according to topics of interest, based on statistics relating to openings and clicks on the emails received.
  • Intelligent” sending of emails on our professional services platform, based on user responses.

Where is your personal data stored on this website?
Due to the nature of this activity, personal data on this website is stored in three places:

  • Web server: our hosting provider.
  • Our email marketing provider:
  • Second web server: another web provider for backup purposes.

All three companies operate under the EU personal data protection legal framework and in the performance of their duties they act as data processors.

How long is this data kept for?
There is no predetermined expiry date for the data collected. Personal data are deleted at the request of the data subjects.

Anti-spam policy

We would also like to express our absolute rejection of the sending of unsolicited commercial communications or any type of conduct or manifestation known as “spam” and we declare ourselves committed to the fight against this type of practice.

Therefore, we guarantee the user that under no circumstances will the personal data collected on the website be assigned, shared, transferred or sold to any third party, except at the express wish of the interested party (see rights below).

In the event that a user still receives communications from this website without having registered, or without having given their express consent to such registration, you can unsubscribe with a simple click from any email received or by contacting through the website itself.

Security measures
Our suppliers have adopted the technical, organisational and security measures that guarantee the confidentiality, integrity and quality of the information contained therein, in accordance with the provisions of current legislation on data protection.

User rights and how to exercise them

In accordance with the provisions of the European RGPD and the Spanish LOPD, the user may at any time exercise their rights of access, rectification, cancellation and opposition to the provider.

To facilitate the exercise of these rights, an unsubscribe button is provided in all communications, which will result in the immediate removal of the user’s personal data from the email marketing provider’s database.

Both the unsubscription and all other actions can be requested through the contact form that is maintained on the website, both to communicate what happened and to request the immediate removal of your data from our system.

We do not undertake to execute all these rights within the maximum legal deadline of 10 working days. In practice we will do so much sooner, as we have no interest in disposing of your data if you do not want us to.

  1. Access
    The right of access is the right of the data subject to obtain information on whether his or her own personal data is being processed, the purpose of the processing which, if any, is being carried out, as well as the information available on the origin of such data and the communications made or planned for such data.
  2. Rectification
    The right of rectification means that the data subject may request that data which prove to be inaccurate or incomplete be amended.
  3. Cancellation
    This is the right of the data subject to have data deleted if they are found to be inappropriate or excessive and is closely related to the so-called “right to be forgotten” (see below).
  4. Opposition
    The right of objection refers to the data subject’s right not to have his or her personal data processed or to cease processing in cases where the data subject’s consent to the processing is not required, where the data is processed in commercial prospecting files or for the purpose of making decisions concerning the data subject based solely on the automated processing of his or her data.
  5. Portability and non-restriction of processing
    This right means that you can ask us for your data in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, provided that it is technically possible to comply with your request.
    In short, this means that you can ask us for your data in common office formats such as Excel or CSV, for example.
  6. Right to be forgotten
    The right to be forgotten is a new, somewhat more complex GDPR concept that mainly affects websites that publicly display your data, i.e. websites such as social networks and various Google platforms.

Applied to our case, this means the right to cancel your data (in the case of the mailing list) and the deletion of your comments in the comments area if you so wish.
