These general conditions (the “General Conditions”) regulate the use of the web pages that comprise this website (the “Website”) of SMART LEGAL IURIS SLP (“SMART”), including mere access to them. All users who access the Website (“Users”) agree to be bound by the General Conditions in force at any time when they access the Website.
The content and services that SMART makes available to Users on the Website may also be governed by special conditions (the “Special Conditions”) that will prevail over the General Conditions in the event of discrepancy. Users also accept the corresponding applicable Special Conditions each time they request or use the corresponding content or service.
As a result, Users must read the General Conditions carefully each time they intend to use the Website, as well as the corresponding Special Conditions, if applicable, each time they intend to use the relevant content or service.
In any event, SMART reserves the right to amend at any time the appearance and structure of the Website, as well as these General Conditions or the corresponding Special Conditions.
The Website is not a source of advice or a means to establish a professional client-lawyer relationship or any other kind of relationship.
The use of the Website shall be free of charge unless provided otherwise in the Special Conditions. Users may have to pay to access the corresponding telecommunications network.
Users are aware and voluntarily and expressly accept that they use the Website in all cases under their sole and exclusive responsibility.
Users undertake not to engage in any conduct when using the Website that could harm the image, interests or rights of SMART or of third parties, or that could damage, disable or overload the Website, or that could in any way impede the normal use of the Website.
SMART implements reasonably appropriate security measures to identify the existence of viruses. Notwithstanding this, Users must be aware that the security measures for Internet-based computer systems are not completely reliable and that SMART cannot therefore guarantee the non-existence of viruses or other elements that could cause alterations to Users’ computer systems (software and hardware) or electronic documents and the files contained in them.
The Website content made available to Users includes information from SMART’s own sources and those of third parties.
SMART makes reasonable efforts to ensure that the Website’s content is complete, accurate and up to date; however, it does not guarantee that it is useful, accurate, complete, relevant or up to date.
The inclusion of content on the Website in no way constitutes the provision of legal advice. Users acknowledge that insofar as the application of the law to specific cases is not automatic but rather varies depending on a very wide range of circumstances, decisions should not be taken based solely on the Website’s content. Therefore, the information in the Website’s content cannot be considered an alternative to legal advice, and SMART advises Users not to take decisions based on that information without obtaining suitable professional advice.
Intellectual and industrial property rights
These General Conditions do not assign any intellectual or industrial property rights over the Website or over any of its elements. Users are strictly prohibited from reproducing, transforming, distributing, communicating to the public, publishing, extracting, reusing, forwarding or using in any way, by any means or procedure, any element of the Website, except as legally permitted or as authorised by the holder of the corresponding rights.
Users may view and obtain temporary private copies of the content for their exclusive personal and private use on their computer systems (software and hardware), provided that the purpose thereof is not to carry out activities of a commercial or professional nature. Users must refrain from obtaining or attempting to obtain the content via means or procedures other than those which have been made available to them or indicated for such purpose or which are commonly used on the Internet (provided that the latter do not entail a risk of harming or disabling the Website). Users must at all times respect all the intellectual and industrial property rights existing over the Website, whether held by SMART or by third parties.
Hyperlinks and Linked Sites
Users and, in general, any legal or natural person intending to provide a hyperlink or technical link device (e.g. text links or buttons) from their website to the Website (a “Hyperlink”) must obtain prior written authorisation from SMART.
The creation of a Hyperlink in no case implies the existence of any relationship between SMART and the owner of the website or web page where the Hyperlink is created, or the acceptance or approval by SMART of its content or services.
In any event, SMART reserves the right to prohibit or disable at any time any Hyperlink to the Website, particularly in circumstances involving unlawful activity or content on the website where the Hyperlink has been inserted.
The Website makes available to Users, solely for searching and accessing information, content and services that are available on the Internet, hyperlinks or technical link devices (e.g. text links or buttons) that enable Users to access Internet sites or portals belonging to or managed by third parties (“Linked Sites”).
SMART does not offer or market, on its own behalf or on behalf of third parties, the information, content and services available on Linked Sites. Nor does it approve, supervise or control in any way the content and services or any material of any nature existing on Linked Sites. Users assume entire and exclusive responsibility for browsing Linked Sites.
These General Conditions are governed by national Spanish law and, unless provided otherwise by applicable law (including consumer regulations), SMART and Users will submit any dispute to the courts and tribunals of the city of Barcelona.
