The Website provides Users with general information about the owner of the Website, its services and activities (hereinafter the “Content”), all in accordance with these Conditions. As this is a professional website, its content is not intended for Users who are minors.

Intellectual and industrial property

Legal protection of the contents

The owner of the Website is also the owner of the rights of exploitation of intellectual and industrial property of the Website, including all of its Contents and elements (by way of example, texts, images, audio and videos) that can be accessed from the Website, as well as those that it has hosted on third-party sites either because they are the owner’s property or because the owner has obtained the appropriate rights for their use. Likewise, the owner has obtained the appropriate authorisations related to the image rights of those who appear on the Website.

The total or partial reproduction, copying or distribution of the Content without the express authorisation of the owner is prohibited. Under no circumstances shall it be understood that access to and browsing of the Website by the User implies a waiver, transmission, licence or total or partial transfer of the aforementioned rights held by the owner of the Website. Likewise, it is forbidden to modify, copy, reuse, exploit, reproduce, publicly communicate, transmit, use, process or distribute in any way all or part of the Contents and elements of the Website for public or commercial purposes without the express written authorisation of the owner.

Therefore, in accordance with the previous paragraph, the User may, in addition to viewing the Contents and elements of the Web Page, print, copy or download them, provided that this is exclusively for his/her personal and private use.

It is also forbidden to use the contact details of the owner (postal address, telephone number, e-mail address) to send any type of commercial communication unless prior authorisation has been obtained in accordance with the applicable regulations.

The operation of the Website is supported by the servers of service providers connected by public and private communications infrastructures.

The owner of the Website will make every effort to ensure the correct functioning of the Website. However, the absence of interruptions for technical reasons for the purpose of carrying out repair and/or maintenance work or due to a lack of coverage or failures in the equipment and/or networks necessary for the transmission of data, which are beyond the holder’s control, cannot be guaranteed.

Thus, access to the Website may be suspended for reasons of force majeure (unforeseeable causes or causes which, foreseen or foreseeable, are unavoidable) such as those listed below by way of example but not limitation:

  1. Failures in the electricity or telephone network supply
  2. Virus attacks on the servers that support the Website

Failure to comply with any of the rules included in these Conditions or the law on which they are based shall give rise to the liability of the User to the owner of the Website and/or third parties for any damage or harm that may be caused as a consequence of said breach, regardless of whether this implies the materialisation of an unlawful act, an administrative sanction, a fault or a crime, and shall entitle the owner of the Website to, where appropriate, demand the User’s liability in the corresponding civil, administrative, labour or criminal sphere.

Owner liability

The owner of the Website accepts no liability for any damage caused to the User or third parties as a result of a breach attributable to the User nor for the alteration of the User's equipment.

Likewise, neither does the owner assume any responsibility for illegitimate intromissions by means of the use of computer viruses and other malicious software, the improper use of the Website by the User or security errors caused by the incorrect functioning of the User’s terminal equipment

  2. It shall not be stated or implied that the owner of the Website has expressly authorised the link or previously supervised, assumed or recommended in any way the services offered or made available on the web page that creates the link to the Website. It is therefore recommended that anyone browsing the Website exercises extreme caution when evaluating and using the information, contents and services on the linked sites.
  3. Setting up a link does not imply, under any circumstances, the existence of a relationship between the owner of the Website and the owner of the web page in which the link is included.
