The ASOCIACIÓN DE INVESTIGACIÓN METALÚRGICA DEL NOROESTE (hereinafter AIMEN) hereby informs the users of its website about the personal data protection Policy so that the users can freely and voluntarily decide whether they wish to provide AIMEN with the personal data which may be requested or which may be obtained from the users due to registration in any of the services offered by AIMEN through its network of websites. AIMEN reserves the right to modify this policy, to adapt it to new legislation or case law, and to the industry's practices. Under said circumstances, AIMEN shall announce the changes on this page giving reasonable notice of their implementation.
Said services provided on the network of AIMEN websites may contain particular conditions with specific Personal Data Protection provisions.
The collected personal data shall be automatically processed and incorporated into the corresponding automated files by AIMEN, which owns and is responsible for its own files. For such purpose, AIMEN shall provide the users with the appropriate technical resources so that, in advance, they can access this personal data protection policy notice or any other relevant information and they can give their consent to AIMEN automatically processing their personal data. Except in the fields where it is indicated otherwise, the responses to the questions on personal data are voluntary, without the lack of consent reducing the quality or quantity of the corresponding services, unless indicated otherwise.
In the event that the user is a minor, it must be expressly stated, and they shall under all circumstances require the express consent and agreement from their parents, guardians or legal representatives in order for the minors to access the specific services and so that their personal data can be automatically processed as set out in this personal data protection policy notice.
The automated collection and processing of the personal data is for the purpose of maintaining the commercial relationship if applicable established with AIMEN, the management, administration, provision, extension and improvement of the services to which the user decides to subscribe, register or adapt said services to the preferences of the user, the study of the use of the services by the users, the design of new related services, the sending of updates of the services, and the sending by traditional and electronic means the technical, operative and commercial information about the products and services offered by or through AIMEN now and in the future. The purpose of the automated collection and processing of the personal data can also include the sending of survey forms to which the user does not have to respond.
Hence, by way of summary:
AIMEN has adopted all of the legally required personal data protection security levels, and has installed all of the technical resources and measures in its reach in order to avoid the loss, improper use, alteration, unauthorised access and theft of the personal data provided to AIMEN. However, the user must be aware that the security measures on the Internet are not impregnable.
AIMEN shall not cede the personal data to third parties unless it is necessary in order to provide the service requested by the user and only for the purpose of being able to perform the requested service.
For legal reasons AIMEN can and must provide all information required by the competent authorities according to the Spanish laws in the event of a court order which shall only arise in the event that the judge has reasonable grounds to suspect that the user has performed illegal activities. In these circumstances and in order to collaborate with the justice system, AIMEN can register and subsequently provide to the police, following the legally required court order, information relating to, amongst others, the IP address which identifies the user's connection, as well as the exact time of the connection, user names and passwords. In any event, the IP addresses and the connection times are registered only for those services in relation to which the user is suspected of using in an illegal manner.
