4.DISCLAIMER OF LIABILITY
4.1 WITH RESPECT TO INFORMATION
Access to the Portal does not imply any obligation on the Center to verify the truthfulness, accuracy, appropriateness, suitability, exhaustiveness or current nature of the information supplied through the Portal. The content of this website is general in nature and does not in any way constitute the provision of training or any tax or legal advice of any kind, meaning that such information is insufficient for the User to make personal or business decisions.
The Center is not liable for any decisions made on the basis of the information supplied on the Portal, or for any damage or loss to the User or to third parties by reason of actions taken that were solely based on information obtained on the Portal.
4.2 WITH RESPECT TO SERVICE QUALITY
Access to the Portal does not imply any obligation on the Center to control the absence of viruses, worms or any other malicious software. The User is responsible in all cases for having adequate tools to detect and remove malicious software.
The Center is not liable for any damage caused to the User or third-party hardware during the provision of the Portal service.
4.3 WITH RESPECT TO SERVICE AVAILABILITY
Access to the Portal requires third-party services and supplies, including transmission through telecommunications networks, the reliability, quality, continuity and functioning of which are not the responsibility of the Center. Accordingly, the services provided through the Portal may be suspended, cancelled or inaccessible, prior or simultaneous to the provision of the Portal service.
The Center is not liable for loss or damage of any kind to the 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 WITH RESPECT TO CONTENT AND SERVICES LINKED THROUGH THE PORTAL
The Portal access service includes technical linking devices, directories and even search tools that enable the User to access other websites and Internet portals (“Linked Sites”). In such cases, the Center acts as an intermediary 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 it is actually aware of their unlawfulness and has not disabled the link with due care. If the User considers that there is a Linked Site with unlawful or inappropriate content, the User may communicate this to the Center in accordance with the procedure and 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 shall the existence of Linked Sites presuppose the existence of agreements with the owners or persons in charge of them, or any recommendation or promotion by the Center of, or identification of the Center with, the representations, content or services provided.
The Center is not aware of the content or services of Linked Sites and, therefore, is not 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 the Center
