How to comply with the law in Spain as an Amazon affiliate

If you are an Amazon affiliate in Spain, you must comply with legal requirements. We explain the easiest way to fulfill them.

Although since the entry into force of the RGPD on May 25, 2018, more has been said about the importance of complying with the law; for years, we had to comply with it. Already since 1999 with the LOPD (Organic Law 15/1999, of December 13, on the Protection of Personal Data) together with the LSSICE of 2002 (Law 34/2002, of July 11, on services of the society of information and electronic commerce), we had a legal framework to comply with. The LSSICE is still in force today and coexists with the RGPD (General Data Protection Regulation).

And anyone who has a website to earn money should consider complying with the law.

What is the simplest and cheapest way to comply with the law today?

The easiest and cheapest way to adapt a business to the RGPD is by using a template kit with almost everything you need to have a completely legal website.

All GDPR templates come with instructions for use and the indicated fields you must fill in. In addition, the policies are modular: depending on the functionalities of your website, you can choose the modules you need.

As an Amazon affiliate, do I have to consider something special when complying with the law?

Yes. In addition to compliance with the law, you must also comply with the Amazon conditions of the affiliate program. The Amazon Affiliate Contract Conditions are intended for all who will create a page or website whose primary purpose is to act as an Amazon affiliate.

Amazon requires that participation in the affiliate program be reported on the website, including, among other things, this information: “As an Amazon Associate, I earn income from qualifying purchases that meet the applicable requirements under the terms established by Amazon for affiliates. The services and products are available only to legal entities and people who are 16 years old.»

But this is not the only information that must be included. Still, in the end, it is a complete page of information about participation in the affiliate program to comply with the law. And the best way to comply with it is by using a kit with the legally correct document, and you only have to fill in the missing data.
