The digital behavior of the person is relevant not only during his life but also
after his death. In particular, the question that arises is to whether the legal
relationships created on that occasion form part of their inheritance and consequently
if they are transferable to their heirs. This leads to the analysis of the
conditions of use of the websites in which the users create their accounts and
to consider whether the content spilled in them can be viewed as personal data
or not. We approach these aspects regarding inheritance law and personal data
protection legislation. The lack of coordination between both parts of the legal
system is more than evident, which leads us to highlight the relevant role that
notaries should have in practice in relation to digital wills.
