By way of example, authorised reuse includes activities such as copying, disseminating, amending, adapting, extracting, reorganising and combining information.

The document concept is defined in section 2 of Article 3 of Law 37/2007, of 16 November, the Reuse of Public Sector Information Act, and includes all information, whether in tangible or electronic format, as well as information represented in graphic or sound form, or by an image used, and therefore also including data at its most disaggregated level or “raw data”.

Furthermore, this authorisation implies the free and non-exclusive transfer of intellectual property rights, where applicable, in relation to said documents and authorises the reproduction, distribution, public dissemination or transformation activities necessary in order to carry out authorised reuse in any manner and in any format, for everyone and for the maximum term permitted by Law.

  5. Where applicable, the metadata relating to the update date and the applicable conditions of reuse included in the document provided for reuse must be conserved and must not be altered or deleted.

Exclusion of Liability

Users or reusing parties make use of the data sets provided on their own behalf and at their own risk and as such they are exclusively liable for any damages to third parties that may result from said use.

The Ministry of Justice shall not be held responsible for the use made of its information by reusing parties or for any damages or financial losses that result or may result, whether directly or indirectly, in financial or material losses or harm to data caused by the use of the reused information.
