3. EXEMPTION FROM LIABILITY
The RESPONSIBLE disclaims any liability for the information published on its website provided that it has no actual knowledge that this information has been manipulated or introduced by a third party external to it or, if it has, has acted diligently to remove the data or make it impossible to access them.
This website uses technical cookies (small files with information that the server sends to the computer of the website user) in order to carry out certain functions considered necessary for the correct functioning and preview of the website. In any case, the cookies used are temporary, with the sole purpose of making navigation of the site more efficient, and disappear at the end of the user’s session. Under no circumstances do these cookies themselves provide personal data and will not be used for the collection of such data.
Through using cookies, it is also possible for the server where the website is located to recognise the browser used by the user in order to make navigation easier, allowing, for example, users who have previously registered to access the areas, services, promotions or contests reserved exclusively for them without having to register on each visit. They may also be used to measure the audience or traffic parameters, monitor the progress and number of entries, etc. In these cases, the cookies used are technically non-essential but beneficial to the user. This website will not install non-essential cookies without previous user consent.
The browser may be configured by the user to alert them of the reception of cookies and to prevent their installation on their computer. For further information, please consult the instructions of your browser.
The user of this website may be redirected to content from third party websites. Since the CONTROLLER cannot always control the contents of third party websites, they do not assume any type of responsibility with respect to said contents. In any case, the CONTROLLER will immediately remove any content that may be in breach of national or international laws, morality or public order, and will immediately remove the redirection to this website, informing the competent authorities of the content in question.
The CONTROLLER will not be responsible for the information and content found, including but not limited to, in forums, chats, blog generators, comments, social networks or any other means that allows third parties to publish content independently on the website of the CONTROLLER. However, and in accordance with Acts 11 and 16 of the LSSICE, third party content is made available to all users, authorities, and law enforcement bodies collaborating directly on the withdrawal or blocking of all content that may affect or violate national or international law, third party rights or public morals and public order. In the event that the user considers there to be any content on the website that could be considered as such, please notify the website administrator immediately.
This website was revised and tested to enable its correct functioning. In principle, proper functioning can be guaranteed 365 days a year, 24 hours a day. However, the CONTROLLER does not rule out the possibility of there being certain programming errors, or that force majeure, natural disasters, strikes or similar circumstances may occur that make accessing the website impossible.
The website servers can detect automatically the IP address and the domain name used by the user. An IP address is a number assigned automatically to a computer when connected to the Internet. All of this information is recorded in a system log on the server that allows the subsequent processing of the data in order to obtain only statistical measurements that show us the number of page hits, the number of visits made to the web servers, the order of visits, the access point, etc.

Risks of the processing: I declare that I have been informed regarding the transfer of data to the provider of the services described (according to the attached contract) and that I have been clearly informed of the risks of the processing due to the absence of appropriate guarantees for the protection of personal data existing in the recipient country.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”).

Third party content and social media plug-ins
1. Social media plug-ins
We use the following social media plug-ins: Facebook, Twitter. This allows you to communicate with such services and like or comment from our website. Social media plug-ins enable a direct communication between your device and the servers of the social media provider, allowing the social media provider to communicate with you and collect information about you browsing our website. This processing is based on Article 6 sec. 1 sent. 1 lit. f GDPR and represents our legitimate interest to improve your website experience and to optimise our services.
Please note that we neither have the control of the extent of personal data that is collected by the respective plug-in provider, nor do we know the processing’s purpose or the period your personal data will be retained.
a) Facebook Social Plugins
We use so-called social plugins (“plugins”) of the social networking site facebook.com, a service of Meta Platforms Inc, 1 Hacker Way Menlo Park, California 94025, USA (“Meta”). The plugins can be identified by one of Facebook’s logos (white “f” on blue tile or a “thumps-up”-sign) or by the additional text “Facebook Social Plugin”. The list of Facebook Social Plugins and their appearance can be accessed via: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
If a user visits one of the websites using such a plugin, the user’s browser directly connects to Facebook’s servers. The plugin and its content are made available directly on Facebook’s servers and included on the website by the user’s browser.
Due to the integration of the plugin Facebook collects the information that a user is visiting the corresponding website. If the user is logged in on Facebook at the moment, he or she visits the website, Facebook may be able to connect the visit on the website to the user’s Facebook account. If the user interacts with the plugin – for example if he or she presses the like button or comments on something – the user’s browser transmits this information to Facebook. Facebook stores this information. If a user is not a member of Facebook, Facebook may collect and store the user’s IP-address. Facebook states that it only collects anonymized IP-addresses in Germany.
The reason for and scope of the data acquisition and information about the way in which the data is processed and used by Facebook, as well as the user’s rights in this respect and settings options for protecting the users privacy can be found under: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
If the user is a member of Facebook and does not wish Facebook to collect personal data via this homepage and to link this with his data stored on Facebook, the user needs to log off from Facebook before going to this homepage.
The user may also block Facebook’s plugins using add-ons for the user’s browser, for example the “Facebook Blocker”.
We use the twitter-button. The button is provided by Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom St., Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. (“Twitter”) The buttons are marked using the text “Twitter” or “Follow” and a stylized blue bird. The button enables the user to share an article or a website of this homepage on Twitter or to follow the provider on Twitter.
If a user visits one of the websites using such a button, the user’s browser directly connects to Twitter’s servers. The Twitter-button and its content are loaded directly from Twitter’s servers and included on the website by the user’s browser. According to the provider’s knowledge, Twitter collects the user IP-address and the website’s URL when the button is loaded from Twitter’s servers. However, this data is only be used for loading and displaying the Twitter-button.
Further information can be found in Twitter’s privacy statement under: https://twitter.com/privacy.
