REAL MADRID no se responsabiliza de los daños o perjuicios de cualquier tipo producidos en el Usuario que traigan causa de fallos o desconexiones en las redes de telecomunicaciones, fallos informáticos u otros sistemas electrónicos que produzcan la suspensión, cancelación o interrupción del servicio del Sitio Web durante la prestación del mismo o con carácter previo.
4.4 On the content and services linked through the Website
The Website access service includes technical linking devices, directories and even search tools that permit the User to access other websites and internet portals (hereinafter, 'Linked Sites’). In such cases, REAL MADRID acts as a intermediation service provider in conformity with Article 17 of Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce Law 34/2002, of July 12, 2002 (the “LSSI”) and will only be liable for the content and services supplied on Linked Sites to the extent that REAL MADRID is actually aware of their unlawfulness and has not disabled the link with due care. If the User considers that there is a Linked Site with unlawful or inappropriate content, the User may communicate this to REAL MADRID in accordance with the procedure and the effects established in Clause 6, although such communication will not, under any circumstances, entail any obligation to remove the link in question.
Under no circumstances must the existence of Linked Sites presuppose the existence of agreements with the owners or persons in charge of those Linked Sites, or any recommendation, promotion or identification of REAL MADRID with, the representations, content or services provided. The Linked Sites are provided solely for reference purposes.
Although REAL MADRID only provides links to websites that to the best of its knowledge meet the applicable legislation, REAL MADRID is not aware and does not approve of the content or services of Linked Sites and, therefore, cannot be held liable for any damage caused by the unlawfulness, quality, obsoleteness, unavailability, error or ineffectuality of the content and/or services of Linked Sites, or for any other damage that is not directly attributable to REAL MADRID.
We reserve the right to remove or block access to this content suspected of being illicit or detrimental to assets or rights of third parties subject to compensation and including cases in which we have effective knowledge of this, whether through court decision, administrative order or any other means.
5. Communication of illicit and inappropriate activities
If the User or any other internet user becomes aware of Linked Sites that redirect him to websites, the content or services of which are unlawful, noxious, degrading, violent or immoral, one may contact REAL MADRID indicating the following:
a) Personal data of the communicating party: name, address, telephone number and e-mail address;
b) Description of the facts that reveal the unlawful or inappropriate nature of the Linked Site;
c) Where rights such as intellectual or industrial property rights are infringed, the personal data of the holder of the infringed right, where the holder is not the communicating party. He must also produce an instrument that substantiates the standing of the holder of the rights and, as the case may be, his authority to act on behalf of the holder where the holder is not the communicating party;
d) An express representation that the information contained in the communication is accurate.
Receipt by REAL MADRID of the communication provided for in this clause will not imply, pursuant to the provisions of the LSSI, actual knowledge of the activities and/or content indicated by the communicating party.
Likewise, a certificate must be provided to demonstrate the legitimacy of the holder of the rights and, where applicable, the authority to act on behalf of the holder when it is a person other than the communicating party, as well as an express declaration that the information contained in the communication is accurate.
Access and use of the restricted access areas of the Website done under the password assigned to a User will be registered as done by said User, who will respond to all cases of access and use. The User will be permanently responsible for the custody of their password, assuming, in consequence, all the harm and damage that could arise from its wrongful use, transfer, revelation or loss.
In the case of a forgotten password, or any other circumstance that produces a risk of access and/or use by unauthorised third parties, the User should immediately communicate this with REAL MADRID, who will in turn immediately block and substitute it. Any operations undertaken before it is communicated will be taken as done by the holder of the password, who will be responsible, and pay for the costs and/or harm derived from any unauthorised access and/or use before said communication.
7. Duration and Modification
The conditions of the present Legal Notice will be enforced until they are changed, and when REAL MADRID makes such changes, they will be communicated to the User.

8. Legislation and Jurisdiction
The present Legal Notice is governed in each of its points by Spanish law for the resolution of any controversy related to the present Legal Notice or the relationship between its points.
1. Processing of personal data and purpose of the processing
We inform you that the data you provide in this form will form part of one of several files, which shall be duly registered with the Spanish Agency for the Protection of Data, whose ownership and responsibility corresponds to REAL MADRID.
Your data will be processed for the consecution, among other things, of the following activities: the elaboration of statistics; the management of registration and removal of users; the organisation of services and events; the management of requests and applications; sending magazines; the marketing of products or services; the personalisation of subsequent purchases and navigation; as well as for sending commercial communications, including by email, on offers and services related to REAL MADRID, both for products belonging to the entity and those marketed by third parties with which it collaborates, including the Official Store and the Fundación del Real Madrid.
You authorise and grant your express consent for REAL MADRID to process your personal data for the aforementioned purposes. Said data shall be that which you provide or that which may be collected from forms, contracting processes, and/or by any other means. REAL MADRID does not request the users’ specially protected data, meaning, in accordance with articles 7 and 8 of the LOPD, data related to race and ethnic origin, religious beliefs, criminal records, physical and mental health and sexual orientation.
All fields that appear in REAL MADRID’s forms are required fields, such that the omission of any of them may mean that we are unable to attend your request, except where there are fields in the form itself whose completion are voluntary.
You declare that the information and data that you have provided us with are exact and true, and REAL MADRID reserves the right to exclude services from any users who have provided false data, without prejudice to the right to take legal action. You shall be the only person responsible for any false or inexact statements that you make and for any harm that they cause to REAL MADRID or third parties.
The personal data shall be treated with the level of protection demanded by law in order to avoid any loss, alteration, treatment or unauthorised access.
Real Madrid will not collect or handle personal data on children under the age of fourteen (14) years.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, due to its content, the Website may be attractive to such minors. In this regard, REAL MADRID encourage parents to supervise the electronic activities of their children, by using, for instance, the parental control tools that are offered by various electronic services and software manufacturers, which help to provide a safe electronic environment for minors. These tools can also prevent children under fourteen (14) years from communicating their names, addresses and other personal details electronically without their parents' permission.
REAL MADRID reserves the right to verify, through whatever means it deems appropriate, the real age of any user that has disclosed data through the Website. On suspicion that a user that has disclosed data on the Website is under fourteen (14) years old and that he or she has falsified the data required for access, REAL MADRID many refuse this user access to the services offered and proceed to cancel and delete the user. However, since it is extremely difficult to determine the real age of the people who disclose data on the Website, if you discover that one of your children has performed such a disclosure, contact REAL MADRID at the following email address: email@example.com.
3. ARCO Rights
You can exercise the rights of access, rectification, cancellation and oppositions in the terms indicated in the personal data protection legislation, contacting REAL MADRID via the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or by post at the address: C/ Concha Espina nº 1, 28036, Madrid.
Finally, we indicate that REAL MADRID can unilaterally unsubscribe you as an eMadridista should no receipt confirmation be received regarding the electronic bulletins sent out by the Club. If this were to pass, your information will be cancelled in accordance with the conditions stated in articles 4.5 and 15.3 of the Data Protection Law.
4. Security Measures
REAL MADRID maintains levels of personal data protection conforming to the Data Protection Law and the Royal Decree 1720/2007, 21 December, approving the Regulation of the development of the Data Protection Law, and has setup all of its technical media to avoid the loss, incorrect use, alteration, unauthorized access and therefore of the data that the user provides via the Website. It goes without saying that Internet security is not absolutely guaranteed.
REAL MADRID promise to fulfil its obligation regarding the secrets and confidentiality of a user’s personal data.
5. Quality of the information
You are obliged to communicate to REAL MADRID any modification of your personal data, so that the information contained in the database is up to date and free of error.
