Infracciones y Multas por uso inadecuado de datos personales. Multas 2016.
The year 2016 brought with it an update to the amounts to be paid per fine, as established in several laws, and based on the general minimum wage.

This graphic shows the fines to be paid for any breach to the Federal Law on the Protection of Personal Data in Possession of Private Parties (LFPD, in Spanish)..

You may find examples of transgressing behaviors and real cases filed before INAI (National Institute for Transparency, Information Access, and Personal Data Protection), in connection with the imposition of fines, some of which may sometimes be quite hefty (millions of Mexican pesos).

For your convenience, BGBG offers you two reading modes: presentation mode and magazine mode. In any of them, you may zoom the information in to enhance your reading experience.

As always, we recommend that our clients and friends constantly review their personal data treatment policies and safety measures, so that any infraction of this sort may be prevented.

If you have any queries, comments, or contributions, do not hesitate to contact the head of our Data Protection and Privacy (Héctor E. Guzmán Rodríguez), via the following e-mail:
