Legal Notice

Simplified summary

These legal notices are mandatory on any website, but here is a simplified summary if you are not familiar with the legal terms:

  • We hate spam: your email address will never be given or resold. By registering here, you will receive articles, videos, commercial offers, podcasts and other advice to help you on your way to Compostela and anything that can help you directly or indirectly.
  • All information collected about you (for example your first name and email address when you subscribe to the newsletter) is processed in accordance with the French Data Protection Act. You can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time using the link at the bottom of each email.
  • Your details will never be passed on to third parties, and will always be used to receive blog related news and information only.
  • Everything written on the site is subject to copyright. In other words, you are not allowed to reproduce it in its entirety without our permission, but we will of course be delighted if you link to the blog if you enjoyed it! Please don’t let it stop you from telling other pilgrims about us and our pilgrimage.
  • You can post as many comments as you wish. Although I am not responsible for what you write, I am bound by the law, and I may therefore have to modify or delete a comment in this sense (the typical case being insult or defamation). Respect and benevolence are two essential values for us, on the road as well as behind your computer.
  • We use Google Analytics to analyse the blog traffic: number of visits, etc. This allows us to better understand your needs, the most important topics and to adapt our content.
