TERMS AND CONDITIONS

GENERAL CONDITIONS OF USE OF THE LLORÉNS ABOGADOS, S.L.P. WEBSITE

PURPOSE

These General Conditions govern the use (including mere access) of the LLORÉNS ABOGADOS website (hereinafter Website).

Anyone who accesses the Website (“User”) agrees to be bound by the general conditions in force at any time on the Website.

The Website does not constitute a source of advice or a means of establishing a professional or any other kind of relationship between lawyer and client.

USE OF THE WEBSITE

Unless otherwise stated in the Special Conditions, use of the Website will be free of charge, except for the cost of connection through the corresponding telecommunications network to which User has access.
User is aware and freely and expressly accepts that the Website is used under User’s sole and exclusive responsibility.
When using the Website, User agrees not to act in any way that may damage the image, interests or rights of LLORÉNS ABOGADOS or third parties or in any way that may damage, disable or overload the Website or prevent the normal use of the Website.
LLORÉNS ABOGADOS implements reasonable security measures that are adequate to detect the existence of viruses. However, User must be aware that the existing security measures for computer systems on the Internet are not entirely trustworthy and that, as a result, LLORÉNS ABOGADOS cannot guarantee the non-existence of viruses or any other elements that may cause alterations in User’s computer systems (software and hardware) or in User’s electronic documents and files contained in such systems.

CONTENTS

The contents of the LLORÉNS ABOGADOS Website are made available to User by LLORÉNS ABOGADOS with information both from its own and third party sources.

LLORÉNS ABOGADOS endeavours to ensure that the Contents are of the highest possible quality and are reasonably up-to-date, but does not guarantee the usefulness, accuracy, completeness, relevance and/or timeliness of the Contents.

Inclusion of Contents on the Website does not in any way constitute the provision of a legal advisory service. User acknowledges that, as the application of Law to specific cases is not automatic but can vary depending on a wide range of circumstances, the information included in the Contents is insufficient for making decisions of any nature. Therefore, the information included in the Contents cannot be considered an alternative to legal advice and LLORÉNS ABOGADOS advises against User making decisions based on the information included in the Contents without seeking adequate professional advice.

The contents and services that LLORÉNS ABOGADOS makes available to User on the Website may likewise be governed by special conditions which shall prevail over the General Conditions in the event of a discrepancy. User likewise accepts the applicability of the relevant Special Conditions each time the corresponding Contents or the Service is used.

Consequently, User must read the General Conditions each time he/she intends to use the Website and, if applicable, the corresponding Special Conditions each time he/she intends to use the relevant Content or Service.

In any event, LLORÉNS ABOGADOS reserves the right to modify, at any time and without prior notice, the presentation and configuration of the Website, as well as these General Conditions or the corresponding Special Conditions.

INDUSTRIAL AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

All the contents of the Website, understood as including but not limited to the texts, photographs, graphics, images, icons, technology, software, links and other audiovisual or sound content, as well as their graphic design and source codes (hereinafter the “Contents”) are the intellectual property of LLORÉNS ABOGADOS or third parties, and none of the exploitation rights recognised by intellectual property legislation in force can be deemed to have been granted to the User except those that are strictly necessary for the use of the Website.

All brands, commercial names and distinctive signs are the property of LLORÉNS ABOGADOS or third parties and access to the Website cannot be understood as granting any right over such brands, commercial names and/or distinctive signs.

User may view and obtain a temporary private copy of the Contents for exclusive personal use in User’s computer systems (software and hardware), provided it is not for the purpose of conducting activities of a commercial or professional nature. User must refrain from obtaining or attempting to obtain the Contents by means or procedures other than those which have been made available to User or indicated for that purpose, or those commonly used on the Internet (provided the latter do not pose a risk of damaging or disabling the Website).

CONDITIONS OF USE OF THE PORTAL

User agrees to make proper use of the Portal in accordance with Law and with these General Conditions. User shall be liable to LLORÉNS ABOGADOS and third parties for any damage that may occur as a result of User’s failure to comply with this obligation.

It is expressly forbidden to use the Website for the purpose of harming the assets or interests of LLORÉNS ABOGADOS or third parties, or in any way that may overload, damage or disable the networks, servers and other computer equipment (hardware) or products and applications (software) of LLORÉNS ABOGADOS or third parties.

HYPERLINKS AND LINKED SITES

a) HYPERLINKS

User, and in general any natural or legal person who wishes to establish a hyperlink or linking device (such as links or buttons) from their website to this Website (“Hyperlink”) must obtain prior permission in writing from LLORÉNS ABOGADOS.

Creation of the Hyperlink shall in no way entail the existence of any relationship between LLORÉNS ABOGADOS and the owner of the web page where the Hyperlink is established, or the acceptance or approval by LLORÉNS ABOGADOS of the contents or services of the web page containing the link.

In any event, LLORÉNS ABOGADOS reserves the right to ban or disable any hyperlink to the Website at any time, particularly when the activity or contents of the website containing the hyperlink are unlawful.

b) LINKED SITES

The Website makes available to User, solely for the purpose of searching for and accessing information, contents and services available on the Internet, hyperlinks or linking devices (such as links or buttons) that allow User to access Internet sites or portals that belong to or are managed by third parties (“Linked Sites”).

LLORÉNS ABOGADOS does not offer or commercialise the information, contents and services available on Linked Sites either directly or through third parties, and neither does it approve, monitor or control in any way the contents and services or any material of any nature available on such sites; User is exclusively responsible for browsing Linked Sites.

Any Internet user who wishes to insert links from his or her own websites must comply with the conditions detailed below; ignorance of these conditions shall not exempt User from any liability under law.

a) The link will lead only to the home page of the Website and may not reproduce it in any way (inline links, copying of texts, graphics, etc).

b) In accordance with applicable legislation in force at any time, it shall in all cases be forbidden to create frames of any kind around the Website or to permit the contents to be viewed through Internet addresses other than those of the Website and, in all cases, to allow the Contents to be viewed in conjunction with contents outside the Website in a way that:

- Creates or could create error, confusion or misconception for users as to the true origin of the service or Contents

- Constitutes an act of unfair comparison or imitation

- May be used to take advantage of the reputation of LLORÉNS ABOGADOS’ brand and prestige

- Is otherwise prohibited by the legislation in force.

c) No false, inaccurate or incorrect statement about LLORÉNS ABOGADOS, its partners, employees, clients or the qualities of the services it provides shall be made from the page containing the link.

d) Under no circumstances will it be stated on the page containing the link that LLORÉNS ABOGADOS has consented to the insertion of the link or that it otherwise sponsors, collaborates with, verifies or supervises the services of the website where the link appears.

e) The use of any word mark, figurative mark or combined mark or any other distinctive sign of LLORÉNS ABOGADOS on the website containing the link is prohibited, except in cases permitted by law or when expressly authorised by LLORÉNS ABOGADOS, provided that, in such cases, a direct link is permitted in the manner established in this Clause.

f) The page that creates the link must faithfully comply with law and may not, under any circumstances, have or be linked to proprietary or third-party content that:

- Is unlawful, harmful, immoral or indecent (pornographic, violent, racist, etc.)

- Creates or may create in the User the misconception that LLORÉNS ABOGADOS subscribes to, endorses, adheres to, or in any way supports the ideas, statements or expressions, whether lawful or unlawful, of the page containing the link

- Is inappropriate or irrelevant to the activity of LLORÉNS ABOGADOS with regard to the location, contents and theme of the web page containing the link.

Where Linked Sites exist, LLORÉNS ABOGADOS acts as an intermediary service provider in accordance with Article 17 of Spanish Law 34/2002, of 13 July, on Services of the Information Society and Electronic Commerce (‘LSSI’) and shall be liable only for the contents and services provided on the Linked Sites insofar as it is actually aware of their unlawfulness and has not disabled the link with due care. If User considers there is a Linked Site containing unlawful or inappropriate content, User may communicate this to LLORÉNS ABOGADOS using the information provided at the start of these General Conditions, although this communication in no way entails the obligation to remove the link.

Under no circumstances must the existence of Linked Sites presuppose the existence of agreements with the owners of or persons responsible for such sites, or that LLORÉNS ABOGADOS recommends, promotes or identifies with the statements, contents or services provided.

LLORÉNS ABOGADOS is not familiar with the contents and services of the Linked Sites and is therefore not liable for any damage caused as a result of the unlawfulness, quality, obsoleteness, unavailability, error or uselessness of the contents and/or services of the Linked Sites or for any other damage that is not directly attributable to LLORÉNS ABOGADOS.

 

APPLICABLE LEGISLATION AND JURISDICTION

These General Terms of Use shall be governed by Spanish law.
