Spain: AEPD fines Preico Jurídicos €2,000 for LSSI violation

The Spanish data protection authority ('AEPD') published, on 9 September 2022, its decision in Proceeding No. PS/00030/2022, fining Preico Jurídicos SL €2,000, for a violation of Article 22(2) of Law No. 34/2002, of 11 July 2002, on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce ('LSSI'), following an investigation. In particular, the AEPD noted that it had initiated an investigation into a website owned by Preico Jurídicos concerning its use of cookies. The AEPD found that Preico Jurídicos had violated Article 22(2) of the LSSI, in that the website did not feature a cookie banner that could enable online visitors' choice regarding the installation of cookies on their terminal as a result of visiting Preico Jurídicos' website. As a result of the violation, the AEPD imposed a fine of €2,000.
