  1. Website Terms and Conditions of Use

Access and use of this Website is subject to the following terms and conditions of use. We recommend that you read them fully. Access to and the use of this Website (including the documents and information contained herein) implies that the user (henceforth the “User”) has read and unreservedly accepted the present terms and conditions of use (henceforth the “Term and Conditions of Use”) including all of the instructions and/or recommendations complementary to the present Terms and Conditions of Use.

This Portal contains information and documents that have been prepared by DAUSS for exclusively informative purposes (henceforth the “Material”). The User of the Website must bear in mind that this Material may not reflect the present legislative and/or jurisprudential situation at any given time and may, as a result, be modified, developed or eliminated without prior notice.

The User acknowledges that the Material available on this Portal may in no case be considered as a substitute for legal or any other kind of advice. Access to the Material by the User does not constitute or imply whatsoever relationship between DAUSS and the User, insofar as the latter accepts that he may not, under any circumstances, act on the basis of the Material contained by this Website, insofar as it does not in any way constitute a professional assessment.

Access to the present Website is free, with the exception of those aspects related to such charges as may be levied for connection via the telecommunications grid supplied by the server providing said access, and contracted by the User, for which DAUSS is not in any way responsible.

The User hereby undertakes not to use this Website for fraudulent purposes and not to engage in any activity with regard hereto that might in any way damage the image, interests or rights of DAUSS, or of any third parties, insofar as the User undertakes to use this Website and its Materials in a way that is diligent, correct and licit.

In the case of any failure on the part of the User to comply with the present Legal Terms, or should DAUSS harbour any reasonable suspicion of possible non-compliance herewith, then DAUSS reserves the right to limit, suspend or terminate access to the Website by the said non-complying User, and to adopt whatsoever technical measures may be necessary to ensure that end. Moreover, DAUSS may, at any time, make a decision with regard to the continuity of the services that are provided via this Portal.

 

  1. Limitation of Liability

The User acknowledges and accepts that use of the Portal will, at all times, be at his/her own risk and liability. Consequently, DAUSS will not accept any liability for whatsoever incorrect or undue use that may be made of the Portal by the User. Moreover, DAUSS will not be liable for whatsoever errors or omissions may be found in the Material available at the Website.

  • Whatsoever damages, whether direct or indirect, that may be caused to the User’s hardware or software, as a result of viruses, worms, Trojans or any other damaging elements. Whatever the case may be, it corresponds to the User to ensure that he/she disposes of the right tools (antivirus, firewall, etc.) for the detection and elimination of damaging computer programs, given that the User must recognise and be aware that whatsoever use of the Internet represents a risk for the security of his/her software and hardware.
  • Direct and indirect damages of whatsoever kind that may be caused to the User as a result of any faults or disconnections of the telecommunications grids resulting in the suspension, cancellation or interruption of the Website service. The User will recognise that any such faults have nothing to do with DAUSS and that access to the Portal requires the use of services provided by third parties that are beyond the control of DAUSS and that the reliability, quality and/or operation of such services do not correspond thereto.

 

  1. Links to Other Sites

With regard to the links contained on the Website, through which the User may access websites belonging to third parties, DAUSS may solely be considered as the provider of intermediation services, in accordance with Article 17 of the LSSI. As a result, DAUSS may only be considered as liable for the contents and services supplied by such links to the extent that, should they have effective knowledge of the illicit nature thereof they have failed to go ahead and deactivate the link with the necessary due diligence. The User may inform DAUSS, by sending an email to barcelona@dauss.es, of the existence of any links containing illicit or inappropriate contents. Nevertheless, any such notification will not necessarily entail the obligatory removal of the corresponding link.

Likewise, DAUSS will not accept whatsoever liability for either the contents of the links or the terms and conditions of use and confidentiality policies of the websites to which such links lead.

The User and, in general, any individual or legal entity that wishes to establish a link from their websites or pages to the DAUSS Portal, will have to obtain prior, written authorisation from DAUSS to do so. In no case may the setting up of such a link imply either the existence of relations between DAUSS and the owner or holder of the website or page on which the link has been established, or any acceptance or approval by DAUSS of the contents and/or services included thereon.

Whatever the case may be, DAUSS reserves the right, at any time, to prohibit or disconnect any links to their Portal, particularly should it be a case of the illicit nature of the activities or contents of the website or page on which such is included.
