GENERAL TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE FOR THE WEBSITE
1.- IDENTIFICATION OF THE PARTIES
The General Terms and Conditions of Use below regulate access, navigation, and use for the website found at the URL https://www.arandovo.com (hereinafter, the “WEBSITE”), which is owned by ARANDOVO, S.L. (hereinafter, “ARANDOVO” or the “Company”).
ARANDOVO, S.L., which has tax identification number (CIF) B16912719, is a company duly registered in the Pamplona Commercial Register (volume 2046, book 0, page 1, sheet NA‑40859, entry 1), and its registered office is at Calle M, Número 11, Polígono Talluntxe II, Tajonar, Navarra (Spain). Its telephone number is 664309076 and its email address is email@example.com
When used in relation to the WEBSITE, the term “User” is understood to mean any person who visits, navigates at, or uses the WEBSITE, or who requests information through it.
2.- PURPOSE AND SCOPE OF APPLICATION
2.1. These Terms and Conditions of Use regulate access to the contents and services offered by ARANDOVO through its WEBSITE, including comments on news items and articles, blogs, chats, and any others established in the future. They also cover use of those contents and services by the Users. However, the Company reserves the right to modify the appearance, configuration, and contents of the WEBSITE, the services, and the terms and conditions that apply to their access and/or use. Viewing the contents or using the services after changes made to them have come into effect, or after changes made to the terms and conditions have come into effect, represents acceptance of those changes.
2.2. If the User views, navigates at, or uses the WEBSITE, it means that the User has accepted and agreed to these Terms and Conditions of Use.
3.1. There is no charge for viewing the WEBSITE’S contents or for using the services it provides.
3.2. No registration is required in order to view or navigate at the WEBSITE. However, it is possible that registration at the WEBSITE may be required before a particular feature can be used. The User can register by selecting a username and password.
If this registration occurs, the password is personal and non‑transferable, and the User must generate it in accordance with the rules the Company has established at any given time regarding password strength and complexity.
If the User selects a password that does not meet the minimum requirements from the Company’s currently approved Password Policy, the user will be notified of this. The User will also be notified of the requirements the password must meet in order to allow valid addition of the User to the Company’s Register of Users.
However, the WEBSITE should have the features needed to allow the User to change his or her password whenever considered appropriate, such as when there is any suspicion or evidence that the password’s confidentiality has been compromised.
3.3. Any password selected will be personal and non‑transferable. The User agrees to make proper use of his or her password and to maintain its confidentiality, and to refrain from disclosing it to any third parties or to the Company itself. Consequently, the Users are responsible for maintaining adequate safeguarding and confidentiality for any usernames and/or passwords they have selected as the Company’s registered Users. They agree that they will not allow any third parties to make use of these, either temporarily or permanently, and they agree that they will not give other persons access to the WEBSITE. The User will be liable for any unlawful use of the WEBSITE by any unauthorized third party, when that use was made possible by the User’s lack of diligence in using the password, or by the User’s loss of the password.
By virtue of the above, the User is obligated to immediately notify the WEBSITE’s managers regarding any event that could allow improper use of usernames and/or passwords, such as theft, loss, or unauthorized access, so that those usernames and/or passwords can be immediately deactivated. If that notification does not occur, the Company will be released from any liability that could arise from improper use of usernames or passwords by unauthorized third parties.
4.- INTELLECTUAL AND INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY RIGHTS
The WEBSITE is governed by Spanish law, and by the Spanish and international legislation on the subject of intellectual and industrial property.

8.1 Links to other websites
Any links to other websites that the User finds at the WEBSITE, which may exist in the form of buttons, text links, banners, etc., will be managed by third parties.
