Some specific services are exclusive to our clients and access to them is restricted. In general, prices for the legal or tax services proposed by the Firm are outlined in the corresponding professional services offer. These are never offered or provided through the Portal.

The user is conferred the status of user of the Portal (hereinafter referred to as the “User”), which implies the acceptance of all the conditions included in this Legal Notice. The provision of the Portal service is limited to the time when the User is connected to the Portal or to any of the services delivered through it. Therefore, the User must read this Legal Notice carefully each time he or she intends to use the Portal, since the Portal and its terms of use contained in this Legal Notice may be subject to change.

Some of the Portal’s services, which are accessible to Internet users or are exclusively targeted to ESCOEM’s clients, may be subject to specific conditions, regulations and instructions which replace, supplement and/or modify this Legal Notice where applicable and must be accepted by the User before the corresponding service is provided.

To ensure compliance with the provisions outlined in Spanish Law 34/2002 of 11 July on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce (Ley de Servicios de la Sociedad de la Información y de Comercio Electrónico, LSSI), the use of the information on the portal entails the acceptance of the following terms of use.

2. Use of the information contained in the Portal

ESCOEM allows the unrestricted and gratuitous consultation of the information contained in the Portal. Copying and distributing pages is permitted whenever the source and the date on the copy are mentioned, the contents are not manipulated or altered, or these are otherwise not used directly for marketing purposes or by entities with the same corporate purpose.

The texts displayed on the Portal are solely for informative purposes, i.e. they lack legal validity. Access to the Portal, as well as the use of the information it contains, is the exclusive responsibility of the User. ESCOEM shall not be liable for any consequence, damage or harm that could arise from its use.

ESCOEM shall employ all available resources to avoid errors and, if necessary, amend or update these as soon as possible. It cannot guarantee the absence of errors or that the content will be permanently updated.

5.1. Links to the portal

Internet users who wish to publish a link from their own website to the Portal must comply with the terms outlined below. Ignorance of these terms shall not constitute a release of the liabilities deriving from Law:

  1. The link may only connect to the homepage or main page of the Portal; it may not reproduce it in any way (inline links, copy of the texts, images, etc).
  2. Pursuant to the applicable legislation in force at any given time, it is prohibited to establish any type of frames that enclose the Portal or display the contents through Internet addresses other than those included in the Portal and, in any case, when these are displayed together with contents outside the Portal so that this: (i) generates, or may generate, errors, confusion or deception for the Users regarding the true origin of the service or contents; (ii) entails unfair comparison or imitation; (ii) benefits of the reputation and prestige of ESCOEM’s brand; or (iv) is prohibited in any way by current legislation.
  3. No false, inaccurate or incorrect statement concerning ESCOEM, its partners, employees, clients or regarding the quality of the services shall appear on the web page that publishes the link.
  4. Under no circumstances will the web page where the link appears state that ESCOEM has provided its consent to include the link or that it otherwise sponsors, collaborates, verifies or supervises the services of the issuer.
  5. The use of any word, figurative or otherwise combined trademark, or any other distinctive mark referring to ESCOEM within the issuer’s page, is prohibited except in the cases permitted by law or expressly authorised by ESCOEM. In this last case, a direct link to the Portal is permitted in the manner outlined in this clause.
  6. The web page that includes the link must faithfully comply with the law and may not, under any circumstances, provide or link with its own or third party content that: (i) is illegal, detrimental or contrary to morals and generally accepted customs of conduct (pornographic, violent, racist, etc.); (ii) induce or may induce the User to falsely believe that ESCOEM subscribes, backs, adheres, or in any way supports, the ideas, professions or expressions (whether licit or illicit) of the issuer; (iii) is inappropriate or not pertinent to ESCOEM’s activity in view of the location, contents and theme of the issuer’s website.

Likewise, any type of trademark or distinctive mark contained in the Portal is protected by law.

The unauthorised use of the information contained in the Portal, as well as the damages caused to ESCOEM’s intellectual and industrial property rights, may give rise to the corresponding legal actions and, if applicable, to the responsibilities derived from such exercise.
