Spain adopts new digital rights charter

Friday 16 July 2021 | 11:00 CET | News
The Spanish government has presented a newly-adopted Digital Rights Charter at an event attended by the country's president Pedro Sanchez. The text is non-regulatory in nature but is designed to provide a reference framework to guarantee citizens' rights in the digital environment, above all in areas such as artificial intelligence, net neutrality, algorithmic non-discrimination and the protection of minors. "These rights are groundbreaking… and serve to demonstrate once again that Spain is ready to lead the way in fighting for rights around the world," said Sanchez.
