Re-use is understood to be the use of documents held by the bodies of the General State Administration and the other bodies and entities of the state public sector referred to in article 1.2 of Royal Decree 1495/2011, of 24 October, which implements Law 37/2007, of 16 November, on the re-use of state public sector information, by natural or legal persons, for commercial or non-commercial purposes, provided that such use does not constitute a public administrative activity.

The concept of document is that established in section 2 of article 3 of Law 37/2007, of 16 November, on the re-use of public sector information, and therefore includes all information, whatever its material or electronic medium, as well as the form of graphic, sound or image expression used, including, consequently, also data at the most disaggregated or "raw" levels.

This authorisation also entails the free and non-exclusive transfer of the intellectual property rights, where applicable, corresponding to such documents, authorising the reproduction, distribution, public communication or transformation activities necessary to carry out the authorised reuse activity, in any modality and in any format, for the whole world and for the maximum period permitted by Law.

  • Metadata on the date of update and applicable conditions for re-use included, where applicable, in the document made available for re-use must be retained, not altered or removed.

The Crime statistics portal shall not be liable for the use of its information by reusers, nor for any damage or financial loss which directly or indirectly causes or may cause financial, material or data damage caused by the use of the reused information.
