This Legal Disclaimer governs use of the Website, as well as access to it, browsing and, in general, the relationship between the owner of the Website and any individual who accesses the same (hereinafter, referred to individually as “User” and collectively as “Users”).

The Website provides Users with general information about SUMMUS and its activities (hereinafter, the “Content”) in accordance with this Legal Disclaimer. As it is a professional site, its content is not aimed at Users who are minors.

Without prejudice to the above, access to certain content or services that may be provided in the future may be subject to compliance with particular conditions that, depending on the case, may replace, complete and/or amend these general conditions, and that shall prevail over the same in the event of a discrepancy.

At any time and without the need for prior warning, SUMMUS reserves the right to amend the presentation, configuration and content of the Website or the conditions required to access and/or use it, and to interrupt, discontinue or terminate access to the Website content, wherein the User shall not be entitled to demand indemnity of any kind.

Therefore, the temporary validity of this Legal Disclaimer coincides with the time it is displayed and until such time as it is fully or partially amended, which is when the new legal disclaimer made available to Users on this Website shall enter effect.

By accessing, browsing and using the Website, the User expressly and without reservation accepts all the terms of this Legal Disclaimer and any potential particular conditions, with such acceptance having the same validity and effectiveness as any agreement executed in writing and signed.

  1. Access

The Website may be used free of charge, without prejudice to the cost of connecting to the relevant telecommunications network to enable the User to access it.

SUMMUS shall not be liable for any damages suffered by the User due to telecommunications network faults or outages that lead to access to the Website being discontinued, terminated or interrupted.

Those who access the Website must scrupulously observe the applicable legislation, ethical codes and Conditions of Use of the Website.

Excessive or improper use of the Website may lead to access to the same being denied. Excessive and/or improper use is considered to be any use that goes against general principles of good faith, common decency and public order, any use that causes or may cause damage to the Website and/or to third parties and their respective interests, including copyright, and any behavior that is intended to disable or impair the performance and usability of the Website, as well as any behavior that violates any specific instruction and/or warning that may have been communicated by SUMMUS or individuals appointed by the same for such purpose. Specifically, and by way of a non-limiting example, the following behavior is not permitted to:

  1. Denigrate the services provided by SUMMUS.

SUMMUS shall be held harmless if any of the above events occur.

Failure to comply with any of the rules included in this Legal Disclaimer or the legislation covering the same may represent an offence, misconduct or misdemeanor and may lead to an administrative penalty being imposed. Such circumstance may entitle SUMMUS to seek to enforce liability within the corresponding civil, administrative, employment or criminal area of governance.

SUMMUS warrants that it has adopted the necessary measures, within its capabilities and given the state of technology, to guarantee the Website’s performance and detect the existence of viruses and other elements that may cause damage to Users. However, the User must be aware that the internet security measures protecting computer systems are not entirely reliable and that, accordingly, SUMMUS cannot guarantee that no viruses or other elements exist that could impair the User’s computer systems (software and hardware) or their electronic documents and files contained on the same. Therefore, the User assumes liability for any risk or damage that may occur and agrees to hold SUMMUS harmless in this regard.  In any case, the User is responsible for using appropriate tools to detect and disable damaging computer programs.

  1. Embedded content and linked sites

Links to the Website from other websites

Any links to the Website set up by a User or another entity or website/web page must only connect to the Website’s main or home page, unless SUMMUS has given express authority in writing for links to be embedded in a different way. Furthermore, such links must be absolute and complete so they take the User to the Website’s own URL and display the Website’s entire Main Page or Home Page screen.

In any case, it is prohibited to establish frames or structures of any kind that surround the Website or that enable its content to be viewed via other Internet addresses or that if viewed in conjunction with content not featured on the Website: (i) may confuse or mislead Users or cause them to be mistaken as to where the content really comes from, (ii) represents an act of unfair comparison or imitation, (iii) seeks to take advantage of the SUMMUS brand and reputation, or (iv) is prohibited by current legislation in any other way.

The existence of a link does not mean that there is a legal relationship between SUMMUS and the owner of the third party website, or that SUMMUS agrees to, approves, supports, has verified or monitors the content or services thereof.

SUMMUS does not authorize links to the Website from third party websites that contain material, information or content that is unlawful, illegal or inappropriate, or that contravenes common decency, public order or generally accepted social rules. However, SUMMUS does not have the human or technical resources necessary to have knowledge of and monitor all the information, content, products and services provided by third party websites that may have established links to the Website. Accordingly, SUMMUS does not assume any liability whatsoever for any matters relating to said third party websites.

SUMMUS reserves the right to ban or disable links to the Website at any time and with immediate effect, particularly if the activity or content of the third party website that includes the link is unlawful. If Users are aware of any unlawful activities that are performed via such third party websites, we would urge them to contact SUMMUS immediately so the link to the site at issue can be disabled.

Links to other websites

Any references the Website may make to other third party websites are for information purposes only. SUMMUS does not develop or manage said websites, or own the referenced Internet addresses, unless this is expressly stated. Therefore, SUMMUS is not liable for the content featured on said websites or for any damages arising from accessing the same or generated by the services provided by them.

If Users are aware of any unlawful activities that are performed via linked websites, we would urge them to contact SUMMUS immediately so the link to the site at issue can be disabled.

  1. Intellectual and Industrial Property Rights

SUMMUS owns the intellectual and industrial property rights to the Website, including all Content and elements of the same (which, by way of example include text, images, photographs and audio and video content) that are available on the Website, as well as content hosted on third party websites that it either owns or has obtained the rights to use. SUMMUS has also obtained the appropriate authorizations for the image rights of individuals who appear on its Website.

The trademarks featured on the Website are owned by SUMMUS or third parties and authorization has been given for their use on the Website. Individuals who browse the Website may only use said trademarks, logos or distinctive signs if they have authority from the owner to do so or have a license to use them.

Content may only be fully or partially reproduced, copied or distributed if SUMMUS has given express authority to do so. Under no circumstances shall it be understood that the User’s accessing and browsing of the Website means that SUMMUS has fully or partially waived, transferred, issued a license for or assigned said rights. It is also prohibited to modify, copy, reuse, exploit, reproduce, publicly communicate, transmit, use, process or distribute all or part of the Content and elements of the Website in any way for public or commercial purposes, unless SUMMUS has given express written authority to do so.

The User may view and obtain a temporary private copy of the Content for exclusive personal and private use on their computer systems (software and hardware), provided they do not do this in order to perform commercial or professional activities. The User must refrain from obtaining or trying to obtain the Content using methods or procedures other than those that have been made available to them in each case or those that are commonly used on the Internet. The User must respect all the intellectual and industrial property rights to the Website held by SUMMUS or third parties at all times.

Therefore, in accordance with the above paragraph, as well as viewing the Content and elements of the Website, the User may make printouts, copies and downloads of the same, provided such actions are exclusively intended for their personal and private use.

It is also prohibited to use SUMMUS’ contact data (postal address, telephone number, email address, etc.), to send any type of commercial communication, unless the sender already has authority to do so in accordance with applicable regulations.
