The mere access to the Portal, completion of forms, sending of information requests, consultations, complaints, employment offers, CVs and, in general, any act of a similar nature to those undertaken previously through forms and/or electronic mailboxes present in the Portal will imply, in turn, the unreserved acceptances of all and each of the constitutive regulations of the present Legal Notice and the acknowledgement by the Portal User. You must therefore read carefully and understand the content of this Legal Notice.
Should the use, provision and/or contracting of products or services be offered through the Website, the mere fact of being used and or requested by the user will imply, equally, the acceptance with no reserves or the specific conditions which have been established and which will form an integral part of this legal notice.
- Website use and access
Access to the Website by the users is free. However, the use, provision and or contracting of the products and services which could be offered by the Entity can be subject to the previous acceptance of formal requisites such as the filling out of the corresponding form, payment of costs and/or the previous acceptance of specific conditions which apply to these.
Just accessing the Website does not imply the establishment of any link or commercial relationship between the Entity and the User, except where the appropriate means have been established and the user has previously complied with the requisites which are established.
Including information on the Website relating to products or services offered by the Entity is solely for information and advertising purposes, unless otherwise is stated.

If as a result of the User’s registration, a password is issued, the User thereby is bound to use it diligently and keep this password secret. Consequently, the Users will be responsible for the adequate custody and confidentiality of all identifying data and or passwords which are given to them by the Entity, and are bound to not agree to their use by third parties, be it temporarily or permanently, nor to provide access to others. The use and or contracting of products or services by illegitimate third parties acquired due to a negligent use of a password given to a third party and or the loss of the password by the User, will be the ultimate responsibility of the User.
With reference to the abovementioned issue, it is the User’s duty to notify the Entity with immediate effect of any circumstances which may led to the improper use of the identifying data and/or passwords, such as theft, loss or non-authorised access, so that the Entity can proceed to their immediate cancellation. For as long as these circumstances are not communicated to the Entity, the Entity will be exempt from any responsibility which could derive from the improper use of the identifying data or use of passwords by third parties.
In all cases, the access, navigation and use of the Website, and the use or contracting of the services or products offered through the Website, is the sole and exclusive responsibility of the User. The User is therefore bound to diligently and faithfully observe any additional instruction given by the Entity or by the Entity’s authorised employees in relation to the Website’s use and its contents.
The User is therefore bound to use the contents, products and services in a diligent, correct and licit manner, complying with current legislation and in particular, agrees to abstain from:
(i) Using them in ways which are against the law, morality and good manners generally accepted or to public order and against instructions given by the Entity.
(ii) Using them in a way which harms the legitimate rights of third parties
(iii) Using contents and products, and in particular, information of any nature which is obtained through the Website or the services for publicity purposes or any form of communication which has direct sales purposes or with any other commercial aim, non-solicited messages aimed at a group of people, independent of their finality, as well as abstaining from commercialising or circulating in any way this information.
