If the Convention for the Protection of Individuals with regard to Automatic Processing of Personal Data were to be extended by the United Kingdom to Gibraltar, the Kingdom of Spain would like to make the following declaration :

1. Gibraltar is a non-autonomous territory for the international relations of which the United Kingdom is responsible and which is subject to a decolonisation process in accordance with the relevant decisions and resolutions of the General Assembly of the United Nations.

2. The authorities of Gibraltar have a local character and exercise exclusively internal competences which have their origin and their foundation in the distribution and attribution of competences performed by the United Kingdom, in compliance with its internal legislation, in its capacity as sovereign State on which the mentioned non-autonomous territory depends.

3. As a result, the eventual participation of the Gibraltarian authorities in the application of this Convention will be understood as carried out exclusively as part of the internal competences of Gibraltar, and it cannot be considered to produce a change in relation with what was established in the two previous paragraphs.
