Terms of use of the public message forms

The following terms apply when you use the forms by which you can post messages on the Godesalco.com pages, such as Camino Companions, Lost in the Camino, Questionnaires or the Guest Book.

  • The messages published on Camino Companions and on Lost in the Camino will no longer be visible after one year of their publication. Those published on other pages will remain visible indefinitely. At any time you can request the withdrawal of your messages by means of an email message to the owner of Godesalco.com sent from the email address that you entered when you published your message and specifying which message you want to be withdrawn.
  • You can publish your message in the language of your choice. Using a certain language will never be a reason for your message to be withdrawn. However, you are asked to understand that this website is aimed at people who understand Spanish or, failing that, English, and that you therefore choose to use one of these two languages to publish your messages, if that is possible, and in the order of preference in which they have been named here.
  • You are asked to write correctly, intelligibly, without spelling mistakes and without using capital letters in order to highlight the text. Breaking these conditions is a possible cause of your message being withdrawn.
  • You are asked to avoid polemicizing with or denigrating other people or entities. It is expected that you understand that none of the pages at Godesalco.com is intended to host the personal opinions of a confrontational or controversial nature of any user. Breaking this condition is a cause of your message being withdrawn.
  • You are asked to avoid posting messages intended to request sentimental or sexual encounters with other users. You are expected to understand that none of the Godesalco.com pages is intended to encourage such contacts. For this reason, it is also not pertinent that you use these forms, and in particular that of Camino Companions, to state your sexual preferences or tendencies. Breaking this condition is a cause of your message being withdrawn.
  • You are asked to avoid promoting any kind of good or service unless it is scarce and helps meet a need of the pilgrims. For example: you can advertise a donkey rental service for a family pilgrimage or the rental of luggage transport carts adapted to pilgrims with back problems, but you cannot advertise taxi, luggage transport, accommodation or organized travel services. Breaking this condition is a cause of your message being withdrawn. You can use the Contact form to consult your doubts prior to publishing your message.
  • Of course, when you post a message on Godesalco.com you agree to do so (a) without incurring in or promoting activities that are illicit, illegal or contrary to public health or public order; (b) without violating the rights of other people; and (c) without posting personal data of other people.
  • And in any case, Godesalco.com holds the right to eliminate the messages that, in the opinion of its owner, are not suitable for publication.

Terms of use of the files generated by Godesalco.com

Exposure of email addresses

Godesalco.com uses a simple system for obfuscating the email addresses displayed on any of its pages, whether those of the users who entered them in the message collection forms intended to be published or any other. This way I make an attempt to prevent them from being collected by unscrupulous people who use them to send unwanted or harmful emails, or to try to make them appear as senders of this type of messages.

This obfuscation is not applied to email addresses you enter directly into messages you post. For this reason and because entering your email address in the message itself is completely unnecessary, you are discouraged from doing so.
