Under no circumstances will it be stated on the website where the link is located that INTEROUD has consented to the insertion of the link, or otherwise sponsors, collaborates with, verifies or supervises the services of the website where the link appears.

It is forbidden to use any word mark, figurative mark or combined mark or any other distinctive sign of INTEROUD on the website where the link appears, except in cases permitted by law or expressly authorized by INTEROUD and provided that a direct link to the Portal is permitted in such cases in the manner established in this Clause.

4. Exclusion of liability

4.1 For information

Access to the Portal does not imply any obligation on INTEROUD to verify the truthfulness, accuracy, appropriateness, fitness, exhaustiveness or currency of the information supplied through the Portal. Since the Content is of a general nature and does not in any way constitute the provision of advisory service of any kind.

INTEROUD is not liable for decisions made on the basis of the information supplied on the Portal, or for any damage or loss to User or to third parties by reason of actions taken that were solely based on information obtained on the Portal.

4.2 For service quality

Access to the Portal does not imply any obligation on INTEROUD to control the absence of viruses, worms or any other malicious software. User is responsible in all cases for having available adequate tools for detecting and disinfecting malicious software.
INTEROUD is not liable for any damage to the hardware of Users or of third parties during the provision of the Portal service.

4.3 For service availability

Access to the Portal requires services and supplies from third parties, including transmission through telecommunications networks, the reliability, quality, continuity and functioning of which are not the responsibility of INTEROUD. Accordingly, services provided through the Portal may be suspended, cancelled or blocked, prior or simultaneous to the provision of the Portal service.
INTEROUD cannot be held liable for loss or damage of any kind to User as a result of telecommunications network failures or disconnections that cause the suspension, cancellation or interruption of the Portal service before or while it is being provided.

4.4 For content and services linked through the Portal

The Portal access service includes technical linking devices, directories and even search tools that permit User to access other websites and Internet portals ('Linked Sites’). In such cases, INTEROUD acts as a intermediation service provider in conformity with Article 17 of Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce Law 34/2002, of July 12, 2002 (the “LSSI”) and will only be liable for the content and services supplied on Linked Sites to the extent that INTEROUD is actually aware of their unlawfulness and has not disabled the link with due care. If User considers that there is a Linked Site with unlawful or inappropriate content, User may communicate this to INTEROUD in accordance with the procedure and the effects established in Clause 6, although such communication will not, under any circumstances, entail any obligation to remove the link in question.

Under no circumstances must the existence of Linked Sites presuppose the existence of agreements with the owners or persons in charge of those Linked Sites, or any recommendation or promotion by INTEROUD of, or the identification of INTEROUD with, the representations, content or services provided.
INTEROUD is not aware of the content or services of Linked Sites and, therefore, cannot be held liable for any damage caused by the unlawfulness, quality, obsoleteness, unavailability, error or ineffectuality of the content and/or services of Linked Sites, or for any other damage that is not directly attributable to INTEROUD.

5. Personal data protection

Interoud Innovation S.L. is oblige to correctly protect Personal data according to the law. Using our Web site does not require any kind of registry of personal data. Nevertheless for some of the services might be necessary that you give us your personal information. In such cases the information collected by forms will be incorporated to our filing system controlled by INTEROUD.

Data collected from the data collection forms on the Portal will be included in an automated personal data filing system controlled by INTEROUD. INTEROUD will process the data confidentially and exclusively for the purpose of managing its relationship with its clients and promoting its activities. INTEROUD will cancel, delete and/or block data where the data are inaccurate, incomplete or no longer necessary or relevant for their purpose, in conformity with the provisions of data protection legislation. By clicking on the 'send' button on the relevant form, User expressly consents to his data being used for the sending of commercial communications by e-mail or by any other means. However, User may object to the sending of commercial communications by checking the box appearing on each of the forms for such purpose. Additionally, when each of the commercial communications is sent, the procedure put in place for objecting to the sending of further commercial communications will be indicated expressly. On the data collection forms, the fields marked with an asterisk are mandatory and, accordingly, if User does not supply the relevant data, INTEROUD may, at its sole discretion, refuse to provide the relevant service.

User may revoke his consent and exercise his rights of access, rectification, cancellation and objection by writing for such purpose to the address indicated in Clause 1.

INTEROUD uses the levels of security required by the Security Measures Regulations approved by Royal Decree 994/1999, of June 6, 1999. Notwithstanding the foregoing, technical security in an environment such as the Internet is not impregnable and there may be leaks due to the willful misconduct of third parties.

INTEROUD may use cookies while providing the Portal service. Cookies are automatic procedures for collecting information on the preferences of a user during his visit to a given website. This information is recorded on small files that are stored in the background on the user’s hardware. Every time the user returns to the website in question, the cookies are activated automatically so that the website is configured with the preferences detected in previous visits. In short, cookies are physical personal data filing systems hosted on the user’s terminal and unequivocally associated with that terminal. Cookies created by other providers cannot be read by the Portal. User can configure his browser software so that it blocks cookies or generates an alert whenever a cookie is created. The Portal can be accessed without having to select the browser option to allow cookies, although failure to allow cookies may prevent security mechanisms for exclusive services or for certain services that require enhanced security from functioning correctly. As a general rule, the purpose of Portal cookies is to facilitate User’s browsing experience.

6. Communication of unlawful or inappropriate activities

If User or any other Internet user becomes aware of Linked Sites that redirect him to websites, the content or services of which are unlawful, noxious, degrading, violent or immoral, he may contact INTEROUD indicating the following:
personal data of the communicating party: name, address, telephone number and e-mail address;
description of the facts that reveal the unlawful or inappropriate nature of the Linked Site;
where rights such as intellectual or industrial property rights are infringed, the personal data of the holder of the infringed right, where the holder is not the communicating party. He must also produce an instrument that substantiates the standing of the holder of the rights and, as the case may be, his authority to act on behalf of the holder where the holder is not the communicating party;
an express representation that the information contained in the communication is accurate.

Receipt by INTEROUD of the communication provided for in this Clause will not imply, pursuant to the provisions of the LSSI, actual knowledge of the activities and/or content indicated by the communicating party.

7. Legislation

Each and every provision of this Legal Notice is governed by Spanish law.
