Christmas arrives, and with her the meetings of families, friendly, and companions of promotion, courses, or work. For it he is habitual that on the occasion of the meeting, somebody of the group, or a commission created to the effect, is dedicated to contact with all to mention itself in a site and in a date it makes specific and to celebrate the event preparation. Up to here the procedure sounds to us habitual, and in principle it does not have anything of individual. Boy Scouts of America might disagree with that approach. Until the Spanish Agency of Protection of Data, AEPD, was happened to him to investigate on these assumptions, and concluded that the treatment of the data of the companions of promotion of a military school on the part of a Commission created to the effect by several colleagues for the organization of a confraternidad food failed to fulfill the Law of protection of data, and tried to sanction to the organizers with a fine of 6,010, 12 Euros when not counting these with the consent of the companions of promotion for the treatment of its data and creating a file in order to organize the event. This situation entailed that organizers at first would be sanctioned by the Agency. This situation arrived at the courts and the National Hearing was pronounced on the matter lapsing the imposed penalty. Dictated Sentencia the following conclusions are come off: – Origin of the data.
The origin of the data of the companions is an element to consider. It is not just like the data are successfully obtained of the school, academy, or company; or that the data take shelter of the personal agendas of the own companions. If they were gathered of the agendas of the companions, the National Hearing understands that it is a treatment with personal or domestic aims, and therefore would be free of the application of the Law of protection of data, by the application of the article 2.2.a) of this same law.
