4. Limitations on liability
In providing users with access to this website, our aim is to offer a range of services and content of high quality, applying the maximum diligence in providing these services and content and in the technological means used. Nevertheless, even though the UOC has adopted the security measures available from the technology currently available, the Foundation cannot guarantee that the website is completely free of viruses or other harmful components, the Foundation shall thus not be held responsible in this respect.
The UOC declines all liability stemming from or potentially stemming from the use made by users of the information and other contents of this website.
Even though every necessary precaution has been taken to provide up-to-date, accurate information in this website, the UOC cannot guarantee that all the information is fully up-to-date and free from errors or omissions.
The opinions appearing in the publications, journals and articles that can be accessed via the website belong to their respective authors. Likewise, the UOC declines all liability for the information and content of all kinds accessible through this website but provided by third parties, particularly liability for loss or damage of any kind as stated above, and any loss or damage that may arise on account of: (i) the absence of or deficiency in the information provided for users, or its truthfulness, accuracy and sufficiency; (ii) infringements of the rights of consumers and users; (iii) infringements of intellectual or industrial property rights, or the perpetration of acts of unfair competition or illicit advertising; (iv) the infringement of data-protection rights, professional secrecy and the rights to honour, to personal and family privacy, and to personal image; and (v) any breach in general of any applicable law, custom or code of conduct.
Users accept full liability for their use of our website, and they are solely responsible for any direct or indirect effect that may ensue for the website, including, but not limited to, any adverse economic, technical or legal repercussions, and also any disappointment of the expectations entertained with regard to our portal, the users undertaking not to hold the UOC liable for any claims stemming directly or indirectly from the occurrence concerned, without detriment to the parties' contractual rights stemming from enrolment in any of our courses of study.
The UOC provides all members of the Virtual Campus community with a free email account using the uoc.edu domain and provides the technological and hosting resources needed to administer it. Its use is restricted solely to the educational field and to communication between Campus users; hence using it for professional and commercial purposes is expressly forbidden.
Users accept full responsibility for their use of the email service, and they alone are liable for any direct or indirect consequences stemming from it; accordingly, users undertake to not hold the UOC liable for any claims stemming directly or indirectly form their use of that service and from the content concerned. By way of example, but not limited thereto, it is expressly forbidden to use email accounts with the uoc.edu domain for sending mass emails, continuing message chains, sending messages in which the sender is not fully identified or is confusingly identified, and making malicious changes to the contents of messages and sending them.
The UOC assures compliance with its duties under the Spanish Law on Information-Society Services and e-Commerce as a service provider in that society.
All matters pertaining to our website are governed solely by the laws of Spain. In the event of any dispute or disagreement arising between the parties over the interpretation or content of this website, all parties shall accept the jurisdiction of the courts and tribunals of Barcelona, expressly waiving any jurisdiction of their own.
The UOC reserves the right to suspend access to its website temporarily for reasons connected with improving or maintaining it or revising its content or programming, or any other reason.
