Based on consent 

When we send information about our initiatives, services or activities, we process the contact details of the recipients with their explicit authorization or consent.


How long we keep the data 

The retention time of the data is determined by different factors, mainly the fact that the data are still necessary to meet the purposes for which they were collected in each case. Secondly, they are retained to deal with possible responsibilities for the processing of data by the City Council, and to meet any requirements of other public administrations or judicial bodies.

Consequently, the data must be kept for the time necessary to preserve their legal or informative value or to prove compliance with legal obligations, but not for a longer period than necessary in accordance with the purposes of the processing.

In certain cases, such as the data contained in the accounting documentation and invoicing, the tax regulations require them to be kept until they prescribe the responsibilities in this matter.

In the case of data that is processed exclusively on the basis of the consent of the person concerned, it is kept until that person revokes that consent.

Finally, in the case of images obtained by video surveillance cameras, they are kept for a maximum of one month, although in the case of incidents that justify this, the time necessary to facilitate the actions of the security forces is retained. or of the judicial organs.

The regulations governing the conservation of public documentation, and the opinions of the National Commission for Access, Evaluation and Documentary Selection are a benchmark that determine the criteria we follow in the conservation or disposal of data.
