Crowdfunding is a financing model that is rapidly gaining momentum all over the world. It works by collecting monetary contributions from a large number of people through an internet platform, with the objective to finance a project or a venture.
If a company in Spain employs you and for any reason you get fired, there are several administration procedures that have to be pursued.
January and July are traditionally periods when shops are offering discounts and sales. In Spain this is regulated by the law 1/2007 of the 30 November. This law which is also called “ley de consumidores” has been updated several times (last update came on the 29 March 2014).
In Spain consumer-grade, fixed broadband is delivered to the clients using mainly 5 types of technologies: ADSL2+, VDSL2, FTTH (or fibre to the home), Coaxial cable and WLL (Wireless local loop, long range WiFi or any other wireless technology with the objective of simulating a fixed landline connection).
This law has a very wide range of applications; covering private guards services (the guards that for example work in Banks and shopping malls), private detectives, alarm and video security systems companies, IT security firms and bodyguards.
Last September the Spanish parliament approved Law 14/2013 of the 27 September also called “law for the support to entrepreneurs and their internationalization”. The law came into effect on the 29th September and its main objectives are to make life easier for self-employed people and to make access to credit easier for small medium enterprises.

Very often they cross the thin line between what is true and what is false.
We can define “limited company abandonment” as the situation where the shareholders and/or administrators of a limited company stop working effectively bringing commercial activities to a halt. This often happens when the company has debts and the shareholders/directors/administrators are unwilling to deal with the compulsory liquidation process, publish the accounts and pay their tax obligations. This situation can be extremely harmful to company creditors as the normal bankruptcy process cannot be followed and the normal debt collection process will be distorted.
On 25th May 2011 the EU set a deadline to the individual member countries to enforce directive 2009/136/EC amending Directive 2002/58/EC on “the processing of personal data and the protection of privacy in the electronic communications sector”. This is the well known “cookie directive”, that was largely misinterpreted by the media, creating a wave of concern among web sites owners.
In Spain, Personal data protection is regarded as a topic of the utmost importance. Article 18.4 of the Spanish constitution of 1978 says:
The law will limit the use of information technology in order to guarantee honour, personal and family intimacy of citizens and all their rights.
