Data protection

Knowing about your customers is crucial, but at the same time processing personal data requires full compliance with a strict legislation. This is particularly true in Spain, where the Data Protection Act (Ley Orgánica 15/1999) is especially severe, and affects all industries. In order to help you, our team includes some of the most recognised national experts on this area and has the experience gained from having worked to several of the biggest companies in our country (we never disclose their identity due to confidentiality reasons).

Audens can help you to implement these regulations in your organisation, creating a culture of privacy in all your processes with the aim of achieving not only satisfactory, but tailor-made strategies for compliance. We turn obligations into a competitive advantage.

When performing our tasks we keep very much in mind the recently adopted Regulation (EU) 2016/679: although it is not applicable until May 2018, it is important to start the alignment with its requirements!
