- Registering new places
- Contributing ratings and comments
- Contributing additional information to existing places on the guide (wiki system).
The User is free to modify their profile at any moment.
Registration on the Website is free.
The username that the User chooses at the moment of registration guarantees each User’s anonymity. The User’s name and personal data will never be made available to the public or to other Website members without the express permission of the User, and are only visible to the User via their “Members area”.
When accessing the Jaccede.com website the User enters their email address and password, as chosen at registration.
The User can then access their “Members area” and enjoy all the various services of Jaccede.com and contribute to the growth of the Site with their information.
