SPAIN: New Data Protection Act in force from 07 December 2018

After more than two weeks from its approval by the Spanish Senate, the Official Gazette of Spain published this morning the new Spanish Data Protection Act, that shall be in force as from Friday 7 December 2018. Coincidentally or not, the publication was made on the very same day of the 40th anniversary of the Spanish Constitution whose article 18.4  enshrines privacy as a constitutional right.
