Vox proposes a ‘toll’ on foreign technology companies to use Spanish data

Date: April 14, 2024 Time: 21:01:27

Vox has presented a non-legal proposal to provide greater protection to users against the new cookie policy, which forces them to choose between paying or accepting them. For this reason, the political party wants large technology companies to pay for transferring data obtained in Spain to headquarters outside the country.

Through this measure, which Santiago Abascal’s party has registered in Congress, the aim is to compensate users for having to choose their information to browse the Internet for free thanks to the new data protection standard.

Vox has been against the policy, which arises from the guidelines of the European Data Protection Committee and the political formation describes as “blackmail.” The party has come to sign that this is a violation of the fundamental rights of Spaniards and has requested the appearance in the Lower House of the director of the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD), Mar España, for this initiative.

They denounce that technology companies transfer data

What Vox also denounces is that, in practice, the companies that own the Internet portals can use the information they obtain from the ‘cookies’ to study the behavior and preferences of the user in case of acceptance and also for sale to other national or foreign companies dedicated to data analysis.

“Given the worrying transformation in the cookie acceptance policy that is taking place in the digital sphere, Spaniards need certainty regarding the use that is given to their data,” warns the parliamentary group in its PNL, collected by Europa Press.

In this context, Vox proposes to promote the establishment of a mandatory toll data gateway “for large foreign technology companies that wish to transfer data obtained in Spanish territory to headquarters abroad, with the aim of compensating individuals whose “They obtain the data, in addition to complying with the corresponding tax obligations.”

Likewise, there is a second point in the proposal that calls for promoting the protection of the sovereignty “of the data of Spanish citizens, guaranteeing maximum information and transparency in the transfer of personal data online”, as long as it does not represent a threat to the National security, defense and general interest.
