Persons or organisations that wish to make or that make a hyperlink from a web page of another Internet portal to any of the pages of the Repsol portal must submit to the following conditions:
The Repsol Portal may put connections and links to other websites managed and controlled by third parties at the disposal of users. The exclusive function of these links is to facilitate online searches for information, contents and services for users; in no case may they be regarded as a suggestion, recommendation or invitation to visit these sites. Repsol does not market, direct, previously check, or endorse the contents, services, information and statements available on said websites.
Repsol assumes no liability, not even indirect or subsidiary, for damages and losses of any kind which may derive from the access, maintenance, use, quality, legality, reliability and usefulness of the contents, information, communications, opinions, statements, products and services existing or offered on other websites not administered by Repsol and which may be accessed through the Repsol Portal.
Repsol may collect personal details and information from Users using a variety of forms on the Portal for their storage and/or use in relation to said Users in order to provide certain services they may request and, with prior consent from the interested parties, for additional purposes such as to send out commercial communications. The information provided by the Users will be included in an automated file owned by Repsol, whose business address is Méndez Álvaro, 44, 28045, Madrid, Spain or by the Repsol Group company involved (hereinafter referred to as “File Manager”).

The File Manager promises to process any personal data on Users to which they have access in accordance with the provisions set out in applicable regulations and in particular (i) to treat as confidential any personal data on Users to which they have access as a consequence of the User browsing the Portal. Nevertheless, the File Manager may reveal the personal data and any other information on the User when so required by the public authorities in the performance of their legitimately attributed functions and in accordance with the applicable provisions; (ii) to adopt the technical and organisational security measures necessary to prevent the alteration, loss and unauthorised processing of or access to said data. Notwithstanding the foregoing, owing to the current security conditions on the Internet, the File Manager cannot guarantee prevention of the illicit use of User information by third parties. Consequently, neither Repsol nor the File Manager guarantee or assume any liability for any damages and losses of any kind which may derive from alteration, loss, processing, unauthorised access to or illegal use of Users' Information by third parties. The User promises to keep the information provided to the File Manager duly updated. The User shall be responsible for any damages and losses that Repsol and/or third parties may suffer as a consequence of the lack of veracity, inaccuracy, lack of validity and authenticity of the data provided.

The duration of the provision of the Website service and its services is for an indefinite period.
Notwithstanding the above, Repsol reserves the right to interrupt, suspend or terminate the provision of the Portal service or of any of the services and/or contents of which it is comprised, under the same terms set out in the third condition.
All brand names, trade names, or distinguishing marks of any kind that appear on the Portal are the property of Repsol or third parties, and it may not be construed that the use of or access to the Portal and/or the services confers on the User any right whatsoever over said brand names, trade names and/or distinguishing marks.
In addition, the Contents are the intellectual property of Repsol or third parties, and none of the exploitation rights which exist or may exist over said Contents may be construed as transferred to the User, under the provisions of the present Legal Notice, beyond what is strictly necessary for the proper use of the Portal and the Services.
For the purpose of preserving possible industrial and intellectual property rights, if a user or a third party should consider that their legitimate rights have been infringed due to the introduction of certain content on the Website, they must report this issue to Repsol stating:
The brand names included on the Portal are subject to any applicable legislation on industrial property, and their reproduction or use without the authorisation of their owner is prohibited.
Any mention of or reference to industrial property rights of third parties included on the Portal implies recognition by Repsol of the corresponding industrial and intellectual property rights of the owners, and their inclusion on the Portal or reference to them does not imply the existence of any right or responsibility on the part of Repsol over these, having duly authorised their inclusion and mention, in accordance with the stipulations of current regulations, and said inclusion must not be considered as a sponsorship or recommendation by Repsol of the aforementioned brand names.
The intellectual property rights of the Website www.repsol.energy and any of the elements subject to Intellectual Property regulations belong solely and exclusively to Repsol, as the owner of all the intellectual property rights.
As the sole owner of the intellectual property rights of the Portal, the exercising of the rights deriving from ownership of the website www.repsol.energy, corresponds exclusively to Repsol, and consequently, the granting of any authorisation to exercise any activity deriving from the exploitation rights, and in particular, the right to reproduce, the right to public communication, the right to distribute, the right to put at the disposal of the public or the right to transform, whatever the format used.
The legitimacy of the intellectual or industrial property rights corresponding to the contents supplied by third parties is the exclusive responsibility of the latter.
