Spain: AEPD fines property owners' association €2,000 for disproportionate installation of cameras

The Spanish data protection authority ('AEPD') issued, on 11 May 2021, a decision in proceeding PS/00296/2020, fining a property owners' association €2,000 for violating Article 5(1)(c) of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) ('GDPR'). In particular, the decision highlights that the association had installed a series of cameras without the informed consent of the Board of Owners, further noting that the neighbours' balcony was being recorded in a disproportionate manner.
