In order to create an email account with the domain name, it is necessary to be registered in the population register of a municipality of Biscay and have the activation code provided by BiscayTIK, once the data provided have been verified. In this way, the identity of the person using the account is certified, avoiding identity thefts and the email account. It becomes a secure digital passport that can also be used to access the municipal e-Government service by means of the username and password.

It should be emphasized that the account has all the guarantees of being run by the Regional Government of Biscay. Currently, there are many free Internet e-mail services that offer a good service. However, in most of them, information is kept on servers located in non-specified places with their own legislation on personal data. The email system’s data is all hosted in Biscay and so this data is governed by local legislation on personal data processing, with the best guarantee of protecting users’ rights.
