4. EXCLUSION OF LIABILITY:

4.1 This website contains materials prepared by IBIDEM merely for informative purposes. The user must take into account that such materials may not reflect the most recent legislative or case-law situation regarding the questions analysed. Similarly, such materials may be modified, developed or updated without prior notice.

4.2 The materials this website contains may not be considered, under any circumstances, to be a substitute for legal or other advice. Access to those materials is not intended to constitute or imply any attorney-client relationship, or any other kind of confidential or professional relationship between IBIDEM and the user of this website. Therefore, the user must not act on the basis of the information it contains without first seeking appropriate professional advice. Similarly, the user must not send IBIDEM any kind of confidential information without having previously checked with one of our lawyers and having received authorisation therefrom to pass on said information.

4.3 The links this website contains may lead the user to other websites and webpages managed by third parties, which IBIDEM has no control over. IBIDEM is not liable for the contents or condition of said websites and webpages, and access to them through this website also does not imply that IBIDEM recommends or approves their contents.

4.4 Whoever uses this website does so on their own account and at their own risk. IBIDEM, its partners, collaborators, employees and representatives accept no liability for any errors or omissions in the contents of this website or other content accessed through it. IBIDEM, its partners, collaborators, employees and representatives also may not be considered liable for any damages arising from the use of this website, or any other action performed on the basis of the information provided in it.

In any case, the User must have adequate tools available to detect and disinfect harmful computer programs. IBIDEM accepts no liability for damages caused to the computer equipment of Users or third parties during performance of the website service.

4.6 Access to the website requires third-party services and supplies, including transmission through telecommunication networks, the reliability, quality, continuity and operation of which is not IBIDEM’s responsibility.

If the User considers there to be a Linked Site with unlawful or improper content, he/she may inform IBIDEM thereof through the procedure and with the effects stipulated in clause 6. Under no circumstances does such communication imply an obligation to remove the relevant link. Under no circumstances will the existence of Linked Sites presuppose the existence of agreements with those responsible for them or their owners, nor recommendation, promotion or identification of IBIDEM with the statements, contents or services provided. IBIDEM is not aware of the contents and services on Linked Sites and, therefore, accepts no liability for damages that may be caused by the unlawfulness, quality, lack of updating, unavailability, error and uselessness of the content and/or services on the Linked Sites or any other damage that is not directly attributable to IBIDEM.
