Data protection notice

Protecting your private sphere and personal data is a central factor in our conception and implementation of our online activity.

Scope of application

This data protection notice informs the user of the type, scope and purpose of the collation and use of personal data by the relevant provider CLIMBO (Carlos Alberto Romay Gonzalez), PS/ Tomás Morales, nº68,1º-A, 35003, Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Las Palmas, España; e-mail:; tel.: +34 687 512 500 (“Provider”) on our websites (“Offerings”). The legal bases of data protection can be found in the  Agencia General de Protección de Datos en España.
Access data/ server logfiles

The Provider (or its webspace provider) collates data on each access to the Offerings (known as server logfiles). The access data includes: Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of the access, data quantity transferred, notification of successful access, browser type plus version, the user’s operating system, referrer URL (the previous page visited), IP address and the provider making the request. The Provider only uses the log data for statistical analyses for the purpose of the operation, security and optimization of the Offerings. However, the Provider reserves the right to inspect the log data retrospectively if there are concrete indicators of unlawful use.
Handling personal data

Personal data is information that can be used to identify a person, i.e. information that can be traced back to an individual. This includes their name, e-mail address or telephone number. Data relating to preferences, hobbies, memberships or the websites viewed by a person also falls within the definition of personal data. Personal data may only be collated, used and forwarded by the Provider if this is allowed by law or the users consent to the data collation.
Establishing contact

When contacting the Provider (for example via a contact form or e-mail) the user’s data is saved for handling purposes as well as in order to answer any follow-up questions.
Comments and contributions

Users’ IP addresses are stored if they leave comments in the blog or otherwise contribute. This is done for the purpose of security of the Provider in case someone includes unlawful content in comments and contributions (defamation, forbidden political propaganda, etc.). In this case the Provider itself may be held responsible for the comment or contribution and therefore has an interest in the identity of the author.

We use the newsletter to inform you about us and our Offerings. If you would like to receive the newsletter, we require a valid e-mail address and information that enables us to check that you are the owner of the specified e-mail address or that its owner consents to the receipt of the newsletter. Additionally, on request we collate data on what special topics we can keep you informed about. No further data is collated. This data is only used for sending the newsletter and is not passed to third parties. When you register for the newsletter, we store your IP address and the registration date. The purpose of this storage is purely for evidential reasons in the event that a third party abuses an e-mail address and registers to receive the newsletter without the knowledge of the authorized party. If you access pages and data within our Offerings or enter data about yourself, please note that Internet data transfer is unsecured. The data may be intercepted by an unauthorized party or even falsified. Your consent to the data and email being saved and used to send the newsletter can be revoked at any time. Revocation may be done via a link in the newsletters themselves or by notifying

Within the registration form we give the opportunity to pay upcoming fees via online payment. Data entered to process the online payment is clearly separated from data entered for event registration. Data entered for event registration is only used in terms of event organization and is not passed to third parties unless you explicitly permit us to. When you register for events, we store your IP address and the data you enter in the registration form. If you access pages and data within our offerings or enter data about yourself, please note that Internet data transfer is unsecured. The data may be intercepted by an unauthorized party or even falsified. Your data sent via registration form can be revoked at any time. Revocation may be done by notifying

In case you take the opportunity to pay via online payment the data entered for online payment is not stored by us but directly forwarded to Payone for credit check and payment process.
Inclusion of third-party services and content

These online Offerings may contain third-party content, such as YouTube videos, mapping from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. This requires the providers of such content (hereinafter referred to as “Third-Party Providers”) to note the users’ IP address in all cases. Without the IP address they would not be able to send the content to the respective users’ browser. The IP address is therefore essential for presenting this content. We endeavor only to use such content where the respective provider uses the IP address solely for the purpose of supplying the content. However, we have no influence over whether the Third-Party Providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. We will notify users accordingly where this is known to us.

Cookies are small files that enable certain device-specific information to be stored on the users’ access device (PC, smartphone, etc.). They are used first for purposes of the user-friendliness of websites and thus assist users (e.g. storing log-in data). Second they are used to collate statistical data about website use and to be able to analyze this with a view to improving the Offerings. Users may influence the use of the cookies. Most browsers have an option that enables the storage of cookies to be limited or completely prevented. However, it should be noted that that use, and in particular convenience, may be impaired without cookies. You can manage many online advertising cookies from companies via the US page or the EU page We store cookies on your hard drive if you do not actively block this.

Use of Facebook social plugins

These Offerings use social plugins (“Plugins”) from the social network, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). The Plugins can be identified from one of the Facebook logos (white “f” on a blue tile or “thumbs-up” sign) or are marked with the phrase “Facebook social plugin”. The list and look of the Facebook social plugins can be viewed here: When a user accesses a website of these Offerings that contains such a Plugin, his/her browser connects directly to the Facebook servers. The content of the Plugin is transferred directly to your browser from Facebook, from where it is directly integrated into the webpage. The provider therefore has no influence over the scope of the data that Facebook collates using the Plugin and thus notifies the user accordingly in line with what it knows: By integrating the Plugins Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed the corresponding page of the Offerings. If the user is logged in to Facebook, Facebook can allocate the visit to his/her Facebook account. If users interact with the Plugins, for example if they click the “like” button or write a comment, the corresponding information is transferred from your browser directly to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a Facebook member, there is still the possibility that Facebook takes note of and stores his/her IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany. The purpose and scope of the data collation and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook and the associated rights and settings options for protecting users’ private sphere can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy: If a user is a member of Facebook and does not want data about him/her to be collated via these Offerings and linked to the membership data stored with Facebook, he/she must log out from Facebook before visiting the Internet site. At the same time Facebook social plugins can be blocked using add-ons for your browser, for example via the “Facebook Blocker”.
Revocation, amendments, corrections and updates

The user has the right to information on the personal data stored about him/her on request and at no charge. Additionally, the user has the right to have incorrect data rectified and his/her personal data blocked and deleted, provided no statutory duty of retention applies.
