LOPD

In this section we set out the Privacy Policy that regulates the use of the web site made available to Internet users by A CORUÑA CITY COUNCIL, with regards to data of a personal nature that you may provide when visiting our website.

1. Use and treatment of data of a personal nature

In compliance with Organic Law 15/1999 dated 13 December relating to the Protection of Data of a Personal Character (hereinafter LOPD) A CORUÑA CITY COUNCIL informs you that data of a personal nature provided through the completion of electronically processed forms contained in the portal relating to services offered, as well as any other data that A CORUÑA CITY COUNCIL has access to as a consequence of your browsing will be stored in automatically generated files. You may exercise your rights of access, rectification, cancellation or opposition relating to these under the terms and conditions set out in section 3. On the other hand by providing this data , the user grants his/ her consent relating to the treatment of said data with the outlined objectives. In those cases where it is necessary to fill out and send a form, its creation will imply that you have informed yourself on the privacy policy (article 5 LOPD) and that you have given the corresponding consent (article 6 LOPD) relating to the clause attached to the form and current privacy policy.

The user must fill in the form providing true information, exact, complete and up to date, you will be informed on compulsory fields (*) and the consequences of not filling these out. Likewise, by accepting this, you will acknowledge that the information and personal data provided are exact and can be verified. We ask that you immediately inform A CORUÑA CITY COUNCIL of any changes in your personal data so that the information contained in the municipal archives remains up to date at all times and does not contain any errors and is not out of date.

2. Security Measures

A CORUÑA CITY COUNCIL informs you that it has implemented all the security, technical and organisational measures necessary to guarantee the security of your personal data and to avoid its alteration, loss or unauthorised access/use subject to current technologies, the nature of the stored data and the human and natural risks this is exposed to. All this conforms with what is s et out in article 9 of the LOPD and in the Royal Decree 994/1999 dated 11 June passing Legislation on Security Measures for Automatically Generated Files that contain data of a personal nature (RMS). So A CORUÑA CITY COUNCIL has established additional measures in order to improve the confidentiality and integrity of the information in organisations, such as that of a personal nature. Nevertheless, the user must be aware that security measures on the internet are never 100% foolproof. A CORUÑA CITY COUNCIL constantly supervises controls and evaluates these processes to ensure the protection of data.

3. Exercising Access, Rectification, Cancellation and Opposition Rights

Those people who provide A CORUÑA CITY COUNCIL with their personal data may contact them as they are Responsible for these files. This way you can access your access, rectification, cancellation and opposition rights free of charge and the terms set out in the current Law.

Given the confidential nature of the information, you may not exercise these rights by telephone, given that this medium doesn't allow us to accredit your identity.

The interested party may exercise these rights by writing to: Registro General del Ayuntamiento de A Coruña, sito en Plaza María Pita, 1. 15001 A Coruña with the following reference on the letter: "LOPD Ejercicio de derechos" ( along with your written and signed request you must provide a copy of your ID card).
