In any case, whenever any person collaborating in the provisioning of content to the Portal is offering a product or service through the Portal, they must expressly indicate that they are doing so, exempting the Owner of the Portal from any liability derived from the fulfilment or breach of any obligations that may be contracted, as well as from any liability derived from any infraction that it may incur in virtue of regulations related to Advertising, Intellectual or Industrial Property, Unfair Competition, Personal Data Protection, Consumer and User Protection, or any other kind.

In particular, the management of the Portal by its owner shall not be understood to entail the owner’s participation in and/or linking -as a party- to contractual and/or commercial relationships or relationships of any other type that may be established among Users, nor will the owner therefore be liable by any means in the fulfilment of any obligations that may be derived from the aforementioned relationships. For these purposes, it will be understood that any User acts independently and autonomously in their relationships with other Portal Users.

Intellectual and Industrial Property:

The content of the pages that make up the Portal may include texts, documents, multimedia works, photos, drawings, logos, marks, trade names, internet domain names, or other distinctive marks protected by industrial and/or intellectual property rights or image rights of which the Owner of the Portal or the individuals or legal entities participating in providing the content to the Portal, or which are authorised to use such for that purpose, are either owners or legitimate licensees, whether they be Entrepreneurs, Experts, Investors, Collaborating Entities, or Users.

Any form of exploitation, including any type of reproduction, distribution, third-party assignment, making available or public communication, and transformation, by any means of support or medium, of the aforementioned works, creations, and distinctive marks, without the prior and express authorisation of their respective owners is prohibited. Failure to comply with this prohibition may constitute an infraction punishable by the current legislation in force.

However, a User, on their own account and risk, may download or make a copy of such elements exclusively for their personal use, without this meaning an authorisation or licence on the property rights of the Owner of the Portal or of the aforementioned third parties. In particular, the User may not alter, modify, or delete, whether in whole or in part, any of these elements or, in general, infringe upon any of the intellectual or industrial property rights of the Owner of the Portal or third parties.

In addition to the above, the content of the Portal, in particular any inventions whose features are outlined in the Portal and/or form part of the projects promoted by Caixa EmprendedorXXI, may be covered by intellectual property rights and/or protected as patents, utility models, trademarks, trade names and/or shop signs, even though this circumstance is not expressly mentioned, thereby prohibiting any means of exploiting them, including all kinds of reproduction, distribution, transfer to third parties, public communication, and transformation, by any means of support and medium, except as expressly authorised by its owner.

Except in cases expressly authorised by the Owner of the Portal, it is prohibited to create links or hyperlinks between third-party portals or websites and the Portal or to present, whether in whole or in part, web pages from the Portal or the information contained therein under frames or macros, distinctive marks, third-party company or trade names that otherwise are associated with the image or trade name of the Owner of the Portal and may induce error, confusion, or deception.

In any case, whenever any person collaborating in the provisioning of content to the Portal is offering a product or service through the Portal, they must expressly indicate that they are doing so, exempting the Owner of the Portal from any liability derived from the fulfilment or breach of any obligations that may be contracted, as well as from any liability derived from any infraction that it may incur in virtue of regulations related to Advertising, Intellectual or Industrial Property, Unfair Competition, Personal Data Protection, Consumer and User Protection, or any other kind.

The Owner of the Portal is not liable for the information, content of any type, products, and/or services offered and/or provided through the Portal by third parties, in particular for any direct or indirect damages, losses, claims, or expenses of any type that, linked to the above, may occur due to:
