How to delete online personal data

My name, cedula number, etc. are on a website and I cannot find a way to have it deleted.

I have no idea how it got there, I am not a business owner and I have not registered for SRI, RUC etc. but early last year I may have accidentally registered on some government portal while in the process of applying for IESS, permanent residence visa etc.

I had written to that government website, requesting deletion of my data. And it was done. I got an email confirming this. Around the same time, another website had my personal data and I wrote here asking for advice–and I was asked to go through the contact/ delete form on the website and the data was removed. I then contacted google to remove the cache webpage. It was a long tedious process…

However, this time the website does not have a contact or delete form or any way to contact the website owners. Or at least I cannot seem to locate it.

Can anybody help me in having my online data scrubbed and even finding out if for some reason I am registered on SRI and that is where the information is leaking from? Although, I cannot understand how this would be legal here.

Any help or advice would be appreciated. Thanks.

New immigration law

In February, 2021, Ecuadorian government made some change to the immigration law. Some lawyer said from now on all classes of immigrants (investor, professional, etc.) will all have to be in Ecuador for a minimum of 21 months before one can apply for the permanent visa. I’ve been told by others, no that is not true, this stays the same as before.

Does anyone know what is the residency requirement for investor holding temporary visa applying for permanent visa in the new law?

It is at time like this, when professionals disagree with each other, I wish I can read (Spanish)…

Bus service to other cities

I am planning to come for my 4th visit to Cuenca at the end of May and am planning to take bus services from Cuenca to Banos de Agua Santa (near Ambato). Will stay in Banos for several days and then take bus to Quito before flying back to the States. Is Amazonas and other bus services still operating through the pandemic, etc.? Are there any special requirements or reservations needed, etc.? I tried to find info online, but am not able to find much.

Any information or bus company recommendations would be appreciated. Are there any websites with bus schedules etc.? P.S. I have taken the buses in Ecuador and have no problems with this method of transportation (for the price). Thanks,

Tuesday 6:45PM: The Mole Agent – “El Agente Topo”
Sergio is a Chilean spy. Sort of. At least, he is offered the role of one after a casting session organized by Detective Romulo, a private investigator who needs a credible mole to infiltrate a retirement home. Romulo’s client, the concerned daughter of a resident, suspects her mother is being abused and hires him to find out what is really happening. However, Sergio is 83, not 007, and not an easy trainee when it comes to technology and spying techniques. While gathering intelligence, Sergio grows close to several residents and realizes that the menacing truth beneath the surface is not what anyone had suspected. A wonderful film that has been nominated for the Academy Awards for Best Foreign Film.

Wednesday 6:45PM: Nomadland
A woman in her sixties who, after losing everything in the Great Recession, embarks on a journey through the American West, living as a van-dwelling modern-day nomad. This film is this year’s top choice to win the Academy Award for Best Film.

Queen mattress, memory foam three inch topper – where can I buy?

I just rented a place in the historic district. The queen-size bed is pretty new … but I would like to improve its ability by purchasing one of those “memory foam” or “tempurpedic” type toppers or covers …

I am in the States now and can buy and bring one with me – but, that would be cumbersome and difficult to travel with when I return and would prefer to buy the “topper” in Cuenca somewhere.

Anyone out there with suggestions? Thank you mucho,

Arabica coffee, a superior quality bean

Arabica is considered the best coffee bean, since although it has less body than robusta, it is more balanced, aromatic and has a very pleasant acidity. Also, it has less caffeine than other varieties.

Arabica has between 0.8% and 1.4% caffeine, a far cry from the 4% that a robusta coffee can have. It is undoubtedly a subtle, delicate and elegant coffee with a great balance between flavor and body.

I am Andrés Guillermo, the only distributor in Cuenca and Azuay of 100% Arabian coffee, grown and harvested at 1,300 meters above sea level, in the province of Loja. I have roasted coffee in two presentations: ground and beans, 450-gram bags so that you can make your breakfast or afternoon coffee a delicious experience in your mouth. Contact me 099 647 2877 WhatsApp or call.

Prevention is cheaper than being cured of Covid19

More cases of infected and deceased by Covid-19 are reported in the report of the new epidemiological week number 13, in Cuenca.

According to the report of the Technical Board, a high number of suspected cases of COVID-19 is registered, with an incidence of 12 per 10,000 inhabitants. While the incidence of confirmed cases went from 3.1 to 3.2 per 10,000 inhabitants.

The reckless behavior of citizens continues despite being in a state of exception.

I recommend using masks approved by the World Health Organization, the KN95 with a valve. Which allow you to breathe better, without fogging up your lenses, avoiding dizziness or removing it to breathe better.

The masks that I sell are imported from the USA, that is, they are not manufactured in Ecuador. The box of 20 masks comes fully sealed and plastered to ensure handling.

I am Andrés Guillermo, you can write to me at or call me at 099 64 72877 (WhatsApp) and I will come to your home at no additional cost to deliver your box of masks to protect your health and that of your family. Blessings

Recommendation for Monica Gonzaga, facilitator

No exaggeration, Monica and her team are truly miracle workers. My husband became seriously ill and spent 11 days in the hospital. Our CD was with JEP, and despite presenting documentation, they refused to follow through with their stated policy of returning our money in the event of a medical emergency.

I initially hired a well-known attorney, to help. She promised to help me before my husband was discharged. That did not happen, and her cost and the cost of her notary was extremely high. My good friend recommended I speak with Monica. The very next day, Monica asked me to come into the office. The first thing that struck me was her compassion for my situation.

She immediately called the attorney/notary she frequently consults with. Monica drew up a Power of Attorney based on my husband’s thumbprint. The attorney and Monica came to my home the next evening and completed the paperwork with my husband. The following morning, Monica and I with power of attorney in hand, went to JEP. The CD was released.

Monica is professional, truly cares about her clients, gets the job done quickly, and to top it off, her rates are more than fair. I highly recommend her services without hesitation.

Recommendation for Julia Muñoz, Spanish tutor

Julia is a great tutor I’ve been seeing for a few months now. We meet twice a week in a cafe for ninety-minute sessions that cost $15 each.

Spanish has been a slow go for me. I’ve been in Cuenca for about 2 years now, and I’m functional bouncing around town but I’d like to bring it to a higher level so that I can have real conversations. Since I started seeing Julia my Spanish has improved considerably. I now fairly frequently get complemented on my Spanish. Also I’ve been noticing tenses and constructions we’ve been studying, walking about town, listening to people talk. I’m now confident that I’ll learn the language very well.

Julia is patient, can teach any level, and very knowledgeable about Spanish. She has a master’s degree from the University of Cuenca. Give her a try.
