The Site has an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificate to guarantee the security of data transmission between your browser and our Site.

Following the User’s registration or subscription by means of the corresponding Registration Form, access to the Site assumes that the User has previously read and accepted unreservedly these General Conditions of Registration, Access and Use (hereafter, “the Conditions”).

The data required in each Registration Form shall be furnished freely by the User and must therefore be accurate.

By means of his or her registration and subsequent access and use of the Site the User shall be understood to give his or her consent, expressly, fully and unreservedly, to the contents of each of these Conditions as published on the Site at the time of access. Should the user not be in agreement with the contents of these Conditions, he/she must refrain from accessing the Site. The Site reserves the right to alter these Conditions, informing Users of said alterations by means of the corresponding notices on the Site, in order that the Users may be aware of its contents from the first moment.

As a User, you declare that you are of legal age and/or have sufficient legal and operational capacity to be bound by the present Conditions. The user expressly, fully, unreservedly and without exception accepts that he/she accesses and uses the Site, its Contents and Services at his/her sole and exclusive responsibility.

The secure server establishes a connection in such a way that the information is transmitted in encrypted form, thus ensuring that it is only intelligible to the user’s device and that of the Site. Using the SSL protocol ensures:

  • That users submit their data to the Site’s server centre and not to any other.
  • That all data is transmitted between the user and the Site in encrypted form, and cannot be read or manipulated by third parties.

To verify that you are on a secure site, please check that the URL of the site begins with https:/

You can also identify that the Site is secure by checking that a “padlock” icon is displayed on your browser’s address bar.

Finally, you can ensure the presence of the SSL certificate by checking the Site’s properties in your browser (check the specific characteristics of your browser for details).

Any change made to the Privacy Policy and information handling practises shall be suitably notified; BiMEP may add to, amend or eliminate this Privacy Policy whenever it deems necessary.
