Legal notice

  1. Object

This legal notice regulates the use of the Internet Portal http://www.puertosdeandalucia.es (also accessible from the address http://www.eppa.es) which the Public Ports Agency of Andalusia (hereafter the Agency) makes available to users.

It has been designed to provide information, activities, products and services for the Agency, all lists together in this document under the heading of Contents.

The Agency may alter the design, appearance and/or configuration of the Website at any time without warning along with some or all of the Contents, and can modify the general conditions demanded to use them.


  1. Access and security

In general, users can access the Web freely and without cost. However, the Agency reserves the right, according to the applicable legislation, to restrict access to certain parts of the Website, in which users must register and provide the information required accurately and up-to-date (see privacy policy).

The use of the password is private and non-transferable, and it may not be given, even temporarily, to third parties. In this sense, the user is bound to make diligent use of it and keep it secret, accepting all liabilities for the consequences of its disclosure to third parties.

In the event that the user is aware of or suspects that their password has been used by third parties, the Agency must be alerted to this situation in the shortest possible time.


  1. Use of contents

The use promises to use this service without engaging in activities which might be considered illicit or illegal, that infringe the rights of the Agency or third parties, or which may be offensive to morals or acceptable rules of online behaviour. The user also expressly agrees not to take part in any of the following activities:


* Destroy, alter, disable or damage in any way the data, programmes or digital documents of the Agency or third parties. These acts may constitute a crime of damages, as defined under article 264.2 of the Criminal Code.


* Block access to the service on the part of other users through the mass consumption of the online resources which the Agency uses to provide its service, or to do any action that may damage, interrupt or cause errors in the systems.


* Add programmes, virus, macros, applets, ActiveX controls or any other digital code or sequence of characters that may cause or be susceptible to cause any kind of alteration in the computer systems of the Agency or third parties.


* Use the contents in ways, or for purposes which are against the law, public morals or generally accepted good practices or public order.


* Play or copy, distribute or allow public access through any kind of public communications system, transform or modify the Contents, unless in possession of authorisation on the part of the owner of the corresponding rights, or this was permitted by law.


* Breach the industrial or intellectual copyright belonging to the Agency or third parties.


* Use the Contents and any particular kind of information obtained through the Portal to send advertisements or messages to engage in direct selling or any other type of commercial use, unsolicited group messages for whatever purpose and to sell or disclose this information in any way.


The user shall be liable for any losses or damages of any kind that the Agency may suffer, directly or indirectly, as a result of a breach of any of the obligations arising from the General Conditions or the law governing the use of the Portal.


The Agency shall take care at all times to respect current legislation and reserves the right to deny access, at its own discretion, at any time and without prior notice, to any user of this Web or any part of the same when the situations described in this legal notice should occur.


  1. Service


The Agency reserves the right to interrupt access to its Website, and to providing any and all of the Contents that it offers through it, at any time and without prior notice, whether for technical, safety, control, maintenance reasons, due to failure of the power supply or any other cause. This interruption may be temporary in nature or permanent.


As a result, the Agency does not guarantee the reliability, availability or continuity of the Website or its Contents, so the use of these on the part of the users is under their own account and risk, and they may not demand any liability from the Agency in this sense.


  1. Intellectual and industrial copyright


Users acknowledge the Agency’s industrial and intellectual copyright over the elements that form part of the Web pages eppa.es and puertosdeandalucia.com, and which protect the graphic design, menus, navigation buttons, HTML code, Java applets or JavaScript, the ActiveX controls, the texts, images, textures, visuals or any other content of this Web page. The logos, domains and brands owned by the Agency are likewise protected, as the previous list is simply for guidance and is not a limitation.


The Agency reserves the right to reproduce, modify, adapt, broadcast, do maintenance, correct errors, lease, sell, rent, lend and exercise any other act which may correspond to its intellectual and industrial copyright over the contents of the web page eppa.es and puertosdeandalucia.com. PPAA does not grant any licence or authorisation of any kind over its intellectual property or any other right related with its Website.


  1. Responsibility


The Agency shall not be responsible if there are interruptions in service, delays, errors or poor functioning, nor in the case of other inconveniences that are caused or due to events beyond the Agency’s control and/or due to defective or illegal actions by the user or for causes of Force Majeure. Without prejudice to the content of article 1105 of the Civil Code, the concept of Force Majeure is understood, to the effects of this legal notice, as all events which are outside the Agency’s control, such as: third party failures by operators or service companies, acts of government, lack of access to third party networks or omissions by the public authorities, or others caused by natural phenomena, power cuts, etc. and attacks by hackers or third parties specialised in the security and integrity of the computer system, as long as the Agency has adopted all possible security measures available at the current state of technology. In any case, whatever the cause may be, the Agency shall assume no liability for direct or indirect damages, future damages and/or loss of earnings. The Agency shall have the right to temporarily suspend the services and contents of the Website to carry out maintenance, improvements or repairs upon it, without compensation of any kind for the users.


Users have sole responsibility for any infractions they may commit or losses they may sustain from using the Web page, and the Agency shall not be subject to any liability. Users have sole responsibility for any complaint or legal action, in or out of court, started by third persons against the Agency or against the user based on their activities when using the service. Users shall accept all expenses, costs and compensation arising from these complaints or legal actions, including those brought against the Agency.


The Agency offers users a series of links, banners and other types of links, through which they can access the Websites of third parties. The function of these links is to tell the user about other sources of information on the Internet where they can expand on the information provided by the Agency’s Website.


The Agency, however, does not accept any responsibility to the user for the correct operation of these links, the results they obtain from them, the accuracy and truthfulness of the content or information they can access there and refuses all liability for losses and damages of any kind that may arise from the services provided by third parties through the Websites that are linked.


Nor does the Agency accept any liability for damages that may be caused in the users’ equipment by computer viruses that may infect users as a result of their use of the Website, or any other damage that may arise from this browsing.


The Agency offers no guarantee in relation with the existence or persistence of errors in any of the Content accessed through the Website, nor does it guarantee the correction of any defect or absence, of virus or any other harmful device on the Website or the server that hosts it.
