The company is only liable for the content and management of the websites it owns or on which it holds rights of a similar nature. Any other website or social network or online data repository outside this website is the responsibility of their legitimate owners.
IMO collaborates in an ordinary fashion with different applications and web environments, and always recommends that all users carefully read the corresponding legal notices and privacy policies before accessing these web environments, while only accessing them once they have understood and accepted in full the said legal text.
IMO undertakes to check the content being posted on such social networks and expel those users who misuse them.
IMO recommends, following instructions by the National Institute of Communication Technologies (INTECO) and the Spanish Data Protection Agency (AEPD) as to the use of social networks or browsing in web environments, executing the following actions (in case they are used some day):
- All Users are advised to resort to the use of pseudonyms and personal nicknames, with which to operate over the Internet, thus allowing them to feature a true "digital identity" that does not compromise the security of their personal and professional life.
- Users are recommended to take special care when publishing audiovisual content and graphics on their profiles, since they may be putting at risk the privacy and intimacy of people around them in this case.
- It is recommended to properly set the privacy degree of the user profile on the social network, so it is not completely public, but only people who have been previously tagged as "friends" or "direct contacts” by the user have access to the information published in the profile.
- It is recommended to accept as a contact only known people or with whom you have some prior relationship, while not compulsively accepting all contact requests received and always researching, wherever possible and necessary, who is the person requesting contact through the social network.
- It is recommended not to publish physical contact information in the user profile, hence allowing anyone to know where you live, work or study on a daily basis or the entertainment venues where you usually hang around.
- Users of microblogging tools are recommended to take special care regarding the publication of information on places where they are at all times.
- It is recommended to use and publish only content regarding which the appropriate intellectual property rights are met. Otherwise, the user will be committing a civil wrong that is protectable by the national courts.
- Users are advised to use different usernames and passwords to enter the various social networks they are a member of.
- It is recommended to use passwords with a minimum length of 8 characters, alphanumeric and case-sensitive.
- All users are advised to have an antivirus software installed and properly updated on their computers.
- Minors must not disclose too many personal details. You should never provide data to strangers.
- You should read all information concerning the website. It explains who its owners are and the purpose for which data are requested.
- If the user is under fourteen, the consent of the parents or legal guardians is also needed. In these cases, wherever data is requested by a social network, the parents or legal guardians should be asked if they approve the subscription or not.
- Usernames and passwords should not be communicated to third parties nor shared with friends or classmates. These details are private and should not be communicated to third parties and/or strangers.
- Whenever there is any doubt about a situation arising from the use of social networks and collaborative tools, parents or legal guardians should be asked.
- The computer must be kept in a common area at home.
- Rules on the use of the Internet should be set at home.
- Parents should know the operation and possibilities of such platforms, both positive and negative.
- Activate parental control and the platform’s control tools and set the parent’s or legal guardian’s mail as secondary mail contact.
- Ensure that age verification controls are implemented.
- Ensure proper installation of a content blocker.
- Raise awareness and inform children about safety aspects.
- Explain to children that they should never meet people they have known in the online world and that, if they do, they must always be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
- Make sure that children know the risks and implications of hosting content, such as videos and photographs, as well as the use of web cameras via social networks.
- Check the child’s user profile.
- Ensure that the child only accesses the pages recommended for their age.
- Ensure that children do not use their full name.
