Spainmedia, publishing company of Tapas Magazine, is committed to protecting your online privacy. The following text discloses the privacy policies in place for our applications and websites. We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy statement in order to know what kind of data we are getting from you and how we use it.

1. The data we collect

We collect two kinds of information from users: personal identification data and non-personal data.

Personal data is information that identifies a specific user. When you participate in certain activities that we offer on our site, such as the opening of an account, sending or publishing content, or participating in a contest, we may ask you to provide certain personal data, such as your name and your email address. You can choose whether to participate in said activities and if you would prefer not to provide the required information you will not be able to participate.

Non-personal data is information that does not identify a specific user. This kind of information can include the URLs of the websites you visited before and after accessing our site and your IP address. Us and our third-party authorised service and advertisement providers can collect this information automatically when you visit our site, as described below in further detail.

2. How we use the data we collect

We use the data we collect exclusively for the purpose for which it was given. This generally means one or several of these purposes:

– To manage your subscription to one of our magazines or your participation in one of its contests.
– To send you notifications through email about our products and services and special offers. For example, the release of a new issue.
– To improve the performance of our sites and applications by allowing us to personalise content and advertisements.
– To solve problems and conduct other administrative tasks.

3. Shared use of your personal data

Except in the cases stated in this privacy policy statement, we will not share your personal data with third parties.

We can share your data with our third-party service providers. We offer some of our products or services through third parties. These third-party service providers perform tasks in our name, such as the sending of administrative and promotion emails. We can share your personal or non-personal data with these service providers to send emails, manage contests in which to enter, provide services to the client and solve problems. In the case of personal data, these service providers will only have access to your personal data with the object of providing said responsibilities limited to us or in our name.

We can share your information in a business merger. This is similar to any other business that can merge or be acquired by another company. In this case, the acquiring company would be able to obtain the information we have stored, including personal and non-personal data. However, all this information would still be subject to this Privacy Policy.

We can share your information for our own safety and the safety of others. We can share your personal and non-personal data when we deem it necessary to comply with the law, to comply with this Privacy Policy, our site’s terms and conditions or other agreements, and to protect the rights, property or security of our site, its users or others.

4. Cookies and other monitoring tools

To facilitate and personalise your experience on our sites we can place cookies on your computer. A cookie is a small text file that is stored in your computer’s hard drive and stores non-personal data for a specific user. We use cookies to save time when using our site and they remind us who you are. Most web browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can choose to modify your browser’s configuration to block or delete cookies. Take into account that if you block or delete these cookies, some parts of our websites will not function correctly.

We can use third-party analysis companies to carry out monitoring and analysis of the non-personal data used. In addition, we can use third-party advertisement companies to publish ads when you visit our sites. These companies may place cookies in your computer with the purpose of displaying certain advertisements.

5. Update and amend data

We recommend that you update your data quickly if it changes. To access and edit your personal data, you can update your account contacting hola@tapasmagazine.es

6. User options

When you provide us for the first time with your data you can let us know if you wish to receive promotional emails. In addition, you can unsubscribe from these emails at any point after opening your account by contacting us at hola@tapasmagazine.es

7. Security of personal data

We take very seriously all the precautions to protect the security of your personal data. This information is in secured servers that can only be accessed by staff and selected contractors. We cipher certain delicate information using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) to ensure that your personal information is secure since you have passed it on to us.
Unfortunately, no data transaction on the Internet or any wireless network is 100% secure. As a result, and while we do take commercially reasonable security measures to protect your data and partner with companies who do the same, we cannot guarantee the security of the information transmitted to or from our site, and we are not responsible for actions of any third-party with said information.

8. Links to other sites

We can make it possible for you to access other content or services hosted on other sites through links on our site. These sites are not subject to this Privacy Policy. We recommend you review the privacy policy of each site to learn how they protect your privacy.

9. Other privacy concerns

Public areas. If you reveal your personal data in a public discussion forum or other public areas in our site or applications, that information can be read, collected and used by others to send you unsolicited messages or with different purposes. This Privacy Policy statement does not apply to said information. If you do not want your comments to be seen by third parties, do not engage in said communications.

10. Changes in the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy occasionally through the publishing of a revised Privacy Policy statement in the “Privacy Policy” section of our sites and applications. With this you recognise that it is your responsibility to review our sites and applications and their Privacy Policy regularly to learn of any changes. A continued use of our sites and applications after the publishing of a revised Privacy Policy will imply your acceptance of said Privacy Policy.
