The User accepts that REAL MADRID assumes no responsibility for the delay, deletion, erroneous delivery and/or lack of storage of the User's communications or personal configurations.
REAL MADRID is also not responsible for decisions made based on the information provided on the Website nor for damages to the User or third parties arising from actions based exclusively on information obtained from the Website.
4.2 On the quality of service
We reserve the right to refuse to provide the service to anyone for any reason and/or to discontinue the service or any part thereof, with or without notice.
The use of this website is subject to all applicable regulations and the user is solely responsible for the content of their communications on the website.
Access to the Website does not imply any obligation on the part of REAL MADRID to control the absence of viruses, worms or any other malicious software. The User is responsible in all cases for having the appropriate tools for the detection and disinfection of malicious software.
REAL MADRID is not responsible for any damage to the hardware of Users or third parties during the provision of the Website service.
REAL MADRID does not offer any guarantee and in no case is liable for damages of any kind arising from the access or use of the Website Contents. Among others, REAL MADRID shall not be liable for the following circumstances:
4.3 On service availability
Access to the Website requires services and supplies from third parties, including transmission through telecommunications networks, whose reliability, quality, continuity and functionality are not the responsibility of REAL MADRID. Consequently, the services provided through the Website may be suspended, cancelled or blocked, before or simultaneously to the provision of the Website service.
REAL MADRID is not responsible for damages of any kind caused to the User as a result of failures or disconnections in telecommunications networks, computer failures or other electronic systems that cause the suspension, cancellation or interruption of the Website service during or prior to the provision of the service.
4.4 About the contents and services linked through the Website
The Website access service includes technical linking devices, directories and even search tools that allow the User to access other websites and Internet portals (hereinafter, 'Linked Sites'). In such cases, REAL MADRID acts as an intermediary service provider in accordance with article 17 of Law 34/2002, of 12 July 2002, on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce (the "LSSI") and shall only be responsible for the contents and services provided in the Linked Sites to the extent that REAL MADRID is aware of their unlawfulness and has not deactivated the link with due diligence. If the User considers that there is a Linked Site with illegal or inappropriate content, the User may notify REAL MADRID in accordance with the procedure and effects established in Clause 6, although such notification shall not imply, in any case, any obligation to remove the link in question.
In no case shall the existence of Linked Sites presuppose the existence of agreements with the owners or those responsible for such Linked Sites, nor recommendation, promotion or identification of REAL MADRID with the representations, contents or services provided. The Linked Sites are provided for reference purposes only.
Although REAL MADRID only provides links to websites that to the best of its knowledge and belief comply with the applicable legislation, REAL MADRID does not know or approve the contents or services of the Linked Sites and, therefore, is not liable for damages caused by the unlawfulness, quality, obsolescence, unavailability, error or ineffectiveness of the contents and/or services of the Linked Sites, or for any other damage that is not directly attributable to REAL MADRID.
We reserve the right to remove or block access to this content suspected of being illegal or harmful to the property or rights of third parties subject to compensation, including cases in which we have actual knowledge of this, whether by court decision, administrative order or any other means.
5. Reporting of illegal and inappropriate activities
If the User or any other Internet user becomes aware of Linked Sites that redirect him/her to websites whose contents or services are illegal, harmful, degrading, violent or immoral, he/she may contact REAL MADRID indicating the following:
a) Personal details of the caller: name, address, telephone number and e-mail address;
b) Description of the facts that reveal the illegal or inappropriate nature of the Linked Site;
c) In case of infringement of rights such as intellectual or industrial property rights, the personal data of the holder of the infringed right, when the holder is not the communicating party. An instrument attesting to the legitimacy of the holder of the rights and, where appropriate, the authority to act on behalf of the holder, where the holder is not the communicating party, must also be provided;
d) An express statement that the information contained in the communication is truthful.
The reception by REAL MADRID of the communication provided for in this clause shall not imply, in accordance with the provisions of the LSSI, the effective knowledge of the activities and/or contents indicated by the communicating party.
Likewise, a certificate must be provided accrediting the legitimacy of the holder of the rights and, if applicable, the power to act on behalf of the holder in the case of a person other than the communicating party, as well as an express statement that the information contained in the communication is accurate.
