3.- Passwords and private area

In cases where the user is sent a password for access to certain services, he/she must keep it under his/her exclusive responsibility in the strictest and most absolute confidentiality and secrecy and must proceed to its custody, use and preservation in a diligent manner, expressly prohibiting the transfer of the same to third parties, resulting in the responsibility of the user and therefore attributable to him/her the harmful consequences that could arise both for the owner of the Website and for the rest of the users.

The user shall be liable for any damage that may be caused to CIC energiGUNE and other users as a result of late notification.

On this website, we have adopted reasonably adequate security measures to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information containing personal data. Nevertheless, the user must be aware that the security measures of computer systems on the Internet are not entirely reliable and that, therefore, we cannot guarantee the absence of viruses or other elements that could produce alterations in the user´s computer systems (software and hardware) or in their electronic documents and files contained therein.

b) Links and hyperlinks

Websites owned by CIC energiGUNE may provide links or access to other resources or websites of third parties, which we believe may be of interest to you or necessary for the provision of some of the services on our sites, but in no case are such websites controlled by us.

The purpose of such links may be to facilitate the search for resources that may be of interest to you on the Internet.

However, these pages do not belong to CIC energiGUNE, nor does CIC energiGUNE review their content, and therefore CIC energiGUNE cannot be held responsible for the content of these pages, or for any services that may appear and/or be available on these sites, or for the operation of the linked page, or for the use and processing of the data that these sites may provide, of the possible infringements that may be committed or of the potential damages that may arise from access to or use of the same, not implying the existence of any link between CIC energiGUNE and the persons or entities that own such content or the sites where they are located.

CIC energiGUNE, therefore, assumes no responsibility for the linked sites, nor is it responsible for their operation, the content, and services hosted on them, or any links contained in those sites.

We strongly recommend reading the corresponding legal notices and, very specially, the privacy policies of those sites before entering your personal data in them, and in case of doubt, we recommend you to contact those sites directly to obtain more information about their privacy policies.

If users become aware of any unlawfulness or unsuitability of the content, services, or any other activities carried out through a linked site, they should immediately notify CIC energiGUNE so that the latter may take whatever measures it deems appropriate.

It is expressly forbidden to present a page of the www.cicenergigune.com website on another website that does not belong to CIC energiGUNE (using the technique known as "framing" or any other technique for the same or similar purposes), or to insert any kind of content broadcast on www.cicenergigune.com on another website other than this one using the method known as "in line linking", or any different technique for the same or similar purposes, without the express consent of CIC energiGUNE.
