Properly Use Your Air-Conditioning To Avoid Contracting COVID: The central government in Spain has released a detailed guide on how to use properly use air-conditioning units during the pandemic.

Can tenants ask for a monthly rent reduction if the community pool is not opened?: {DISCLAIMER- THIS IS FOR INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY AND IS NOT LEGAL ADVICE, ALWAYS CONSULT A LAWYER FOR LEGAL ADVICE.} The OCU Consumer Organization has produced a guide with practical information for both owners and tenants affected by this decision.
In the case of tenants, if the use of the pool is contemplated in the rental, the inability to access it could be considered a partial breach of the lease. Although it is true that the lessee is obliged to bear the decision to close the pool, it is no less so that, when the closure responds to a Community decision based on economic reasons, he can request compensation from the lessor for the unavailability of that element, affect from the OCU.
In this situation, the OCU recommends that an agreement be reached between the parties and adds that it considers “adjusted by law that the landlord agrees to a temporary reduction of the rent to his tenant” due to the lack of availability of the pool. Also, if the pool is to remain closed, the owner will have a cost savings that will facilitate the agreement.
In case of dispute the final decision would always be in the hands of a judge. Although, OCU does not advise in any case to go to a judicial process for this reason. Instead, it is recommended that the parties reach an agreement, which may consist of lowering the rent or other compensation. As a basis for that agreement, the Organization considers that, by analogy, article 22 of the Urban Leasing Law would apply, which provides compensation for works in the leased home that prevent the tenant from using part of the property, since there is a sudden unavailability of one of the elements included in the rental contract, due to a decision by the Community of owners.
As a guideline, OCU calculates that the rent reduction could be agreed between 10% and 20% during the months of regular use of the pool in which it will be unavailable.

OnLine Stores “FormJacked”: Researchers reported on Monday that hackers are now exploiting Google’s Analytics service to stealthily pilfer credit card information from infected e-commerce sites (online stores).
According to several independent reports from PerimeterX, Kaspersky, and Sansec, threat actors are now injecting data-stealing code on the compromised websites in combination with tracking code generated by Google Analytics for their own account, letting them exfiltrate payment information entered by users even in conditions where content security policies are enforced for maximum web security.
As a customer, unfortunately, there isn’t much you can do to safeguard yourself from formjacking attacks. But it’s essential that you watch out for any instances of unauthorized purchases or identity theft. Full details: https://thehackernews.com/2020/06/google-analytics-hacking.html
