  1. Data collection: Users, who register their data, will be asked for express consent for their data to be managed and processed by L-NET in those cases where their data is published, and there is no contractual relationship and/or a purpose or public interest to contemplate.


All forms will have a box incorporated for you to provide your acceptance of the conditions in which you provide the information.
