LICENCE REGARDING COMMUNICATIONS
If the User sends information of any kind to Merlin through the Website, using the channels made available for this purpose on the Page itself, the User declares, guarantees, and accepts that they have the right to do so freely, that said information does not infringe any laws on intellectual property, branding, patents, commercial secrecy, or any other third party rights, that this information is not confidential, and that this information is not harmful to others.
The user assumes responsibility and will hold Merlin harmless with respect to any communication sent, personally or on their behalf. This responsibility extends without restriction to the accuracy, legality, originality and ownership of the same.
RESPONSIBILITY AND GUARANTEES
Merlin does not guarantee nor is it responsible for: (i) the continuity of Website contents; (ii) the absence of errors in contents or products; (iii) the absence of viruses and/or other harmful components on the Website or the server that supplies it; (iv) the invulnerability of the Website and/or the impenetrability of the security measures taken on it; (v) the lack of utility or performance of the contents and products of the Website; (vi) any damage caused to themselves or a third party by a person who infringes the conditions, rules, and instructions established by Merlin on the Website or by breaching the Website security systems.

Links to other Webpages
If the User finds links on the Website to other Webpages that can be accessed via different buttons, links, banners, etc., these will be managed by third parties. Merlin does not have the ability or the human or technical resources to know, control, or approve all the information, contents, products, or services provided by other websites that might establish links from the Website.
Consequently, Merlin shall not accept any liability for any aspect involving a webpage that might establish a link from the Website. This specifically includes but is not limited to the following: the website’s operation, access, data, information, and files; the quality and reliability of its products and services; its own links; and/or any of its content, in general.
In this regard, if the User has effective knowledge of the illegality of activities developed through these third-party webpages, they must immediately notify Merlin so it can disable the access link to it.
The placement of any kind of link from the Website to a third-party website does not imply that there is any kind of relationship, cooperation, or dependence between Merlin and the person or entity responsible for the external website.
Link on other webpages to the Website
If any User, entity or website wishes to embed a link that will direct users to the Website, they must comply with the following conditions and requirements:
The link may only lead to the Main Page or Homepage of the Website, unless Merlin has provided express written authorisation otherwise.
The link must be absolute and complete. In other words, it must take the Users, via a single click, to the URL address of the Website and must fully encompass the entire length of the Website Main Page screen. Under no circumstances, unless Merlin expressly authorises it in writing, may the Website that has embedded the link reproduce the Website in any way, include it as part of its own Website or within any of its frames, or create a browser for any of the Website pages.
The page that establishes the link must not state in any way that Merlin has authorised the link, unless Merlin has expressly done so in writing. If the entity making the link from its page to the Website correctly wishes to include on its Webpage the branding, name, trade name, mark, logo, slogan or any other kind of element that identifies Merlin and/or the Website, they must have express written authorisation prior to doing so.
It is strictly forbidden to establish links to the Website from webpages that contain materials, information or contents that are illicit, illegal, degrading, obscene, and in general, which contravene morality, public order, or generally accepted social norms.
Merlin does not have the ability or the human or technical resources to know, control y approve all the information, contents, products or services provided by other Websites that have established links leading to the Website. Merlin accepts no liability whatsoever for any aspect involving a website that places a link to the Website. This specifically includes but is not limited to the following: the website’s operation, access, data, information, and files; the quality and reliability of its products and services; its own links; and/or any of its content, in general.
DURATION AND MODIFICATION
Merlin may amend the terms and conditions set out here, fully or partially, publishing any changes in the same way as this Legal Notice, or through any type of communication addressed to Users.
The validity of this Legal Notice, therefore, coincides with the period during which it is visible, until the terms are partially or fully amended, at which time the amended Legal Notice will take effect.
Regardless of the provisions set out in the specific terms and conditions, Merlin may at any time and without giving any forewarning terminate, suspend, or interrupt access to the contents of the page, in which case the User will have not the right to demand compensation of any kind. Following this termination, the content usage prohibitions set out above in this Legal Notice will continue to remain in force
The headings of the different clauses are provided for information purposes only and do not affect, qualify, or expand on the interpretation of the Legal Notice.
Should there be any discrepancies between the provisions set out in this Legal Notice and the specific terms governing each specific service, the latter shall take precedence.
In the event that any provision or provisions set out in this Legal Notice are held to be null and void or unenforceable, in whole or in part, by any Court or competent administrative body, this nullity or non-enforceability will not affect the other provisions of the Legal Notice.
Merlin’s exercise or failure to exercise any right or provision contained in this Legal Notice will not constitute a waiver thereof, unless Merlin acknowledges and agrees to this in writing.
The relationships established between Merlin and the User shall be governed by current applicable laws and competent jurisdiction. However, should the law make reference to the parties being bound by a specific jurisdiction, Merlin and the User, expressly waiving their right to any other jurisdiction, agree to submit any contentions and/or proceedings to the Courts of Madrid.
