GENERAL CONDITIONS FOR USE OF THE WEBSITE

OBJECT

These General Conditions regulate the use of the web pages that comprise the Website, including mere access to them. All Users who access the Website agree to be bound by the General Conditions in force at any time when they access the Website.

The content and services that Uría Menéndez makes available to the User 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, Uría Menéndez 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.

USE OF THE WEBSITE

The Website is not a source of advice or a means to establish a professional client-lawyer relationship or any other kind of relationship.

Use

The use of the Website shall be free of charge unless provided otherwise in the Special Conditions, without prejudice to the connection charge that Users 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 Uría Menéndez or of third parties, or that could damage, disable or overload the Website, or that could in any form impede the normal use of the Website.

Uría Menéndez implements reasonably appropriate security measures to identify the existence of viruses. Notwithstanding this, Users must be aware that the security measures for computer systems on the Internet are not entirely reliable and that Uría Menéndez 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.

Content

Uría Menéndez makes the Website content available to Users with information taken from its own and third-party sources.

Uría Menéndez seeks to procure that the content is of the highest possible quality and reasonably up-to-date; however, it does not guarantee its usefulness, accuracy, completeness, relevance or that it is 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, the information included in the content is insufficient to take decisions of any nature. Therefore, the information included in the content cannot be considered an alternative to legal advice, and Uría Menéndez advises Users not to take decisions based on the information included in the content 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 engaging in the reproduction, transformation, distribution, public communication, publication, extraction, reuse, forwarding or use of any nature, by any means or procedure, of 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 imply 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 Uría Menéndez or by third parties.

Hyperlinks and Linked Sites

a) Hyperlinks

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 (the "Hyperlink") must obtain prior written authorisation from Uría Menéndez.

The creation of the Hyperlink in no case implies the existence of any relationship between Uría Menéndez and the owner of the website or web page where the Hyperlink is created, or the acceptance or approval by Uría Menéndez of its content or services.

In any event, Uría Menéndez 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.

b) Linked Sites

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 (the “Linked Sites”).

Uría Menéndez does not offer or market, on its own behalf or on behalf of third parties, the information, content and services available on the Linked Sites. Nor does it approve, supervise or control in any way the content and services or any material of any nature existing on the Linked Sites. Users assume entire and exclusive responsibility for browsing such sites.

GOVERNING LAW AND JURISDICTION

These General Conditions are governed by national Spanish law and unless provided otherwise by applicable law (including consumer regulations), the parties will submit any dispute to the courts and tribunals of the city of Madrid.
