Links policy

Establishment of links to the Website

The establishment of links to the Website is prohibited unless they have previously been authorized by BBVA IT. In any event, once the link has been authorized by BBVA IT, it must be established in the following terms:

  • The link may not consist of frames that permit visualization of the Website via internet addresses other than those of the Website or in any other way display the Website information together with that included on other web pages.
  • No false, inaccurate or incorrect declarations regarding the Website and/or BBVA IT may be made via the website that introduces the link (the “Linking Site”).
  • On no account does the authorization granted by BBVA IT mean that: (i) BBVA IT sponsors, confirms, verifies or supervises the content and/or services provided via the Linking Site or that (ii) BBVA IT is in any way liable for the content of the Linking Site.
  • The Linking Site must faithfully comply with the Law and may not, under any circumstances, contain content, either its own or that of third parties, that: (i) is unlawful, damaging to third-party rights, harmful, degrading, violent, unsuitable or in any other way contrary to morals, uses and good customs (e.g. pornographic or racist content), (ii) induce or may induce the User to have the false impression that BBVA IT subscribes to, endorses, adheres to or in any way supports the sender’s lawful or unlawful ideas, statements or expressions and (iii) are inappropriate or not relevant to BBVA IT’s activity.

In the event of non-compliance with any of the above-mentioned terms, BBVA IT may take the legal measures that may be appropriate in this regard.

Linked Sites

In order to help the User to find additional information, BBVA IT may include several technical link devices enabling the User to access other websites (“Linked Sites”). In these cases, BBVA IT acts as a provider of intermediation services, in accordance with the provisions of Article 17 of the LSSI. In accordance with the provisions of the above-mentioned legislation, BBVA IT cannot be held liable for the services and content provided via the Linked Sites, unless it is aware of their unlawfulness and has not disabled the link with due diligence.

On no account does the existence of Linked Sites entail any recommendation, promotion or identification or BBVA IT’s agreement with the declarations, content or services provided via the Linked Sites. Consequently, BBVA IT cannot be held liable for the content of the Linked Sites, nor their conditions of use and privacy policies, and Users are solely responsible for checking and accepting them every time they access and use them.

Reporting of activities of an unlawful and inappropriate nature

In the event that the User or any other internet user becomes aware that any kind of content or information on the Website, or any provided via it, is unlawful, damaging to third-party rights, harmful, degrading, violent, inappropriate, contrary to the provisions of these Conditions of Use or in any other way contrary to morals, uses and good customs, they may contact BBVA IT, indicating the following details:

  • the sender’s personal data: name, address, phone number and email address;
  • a description of the facts revealing the unlawful or inappropriate nature of the content or information, as well as the specific address via which it is available;

In the event of an infringement of third-party rights, such as intellectual and industrial property rights, the data of the owner of the infringed right must be provided whenever it is a person other than the reporting party. He/she must also provide evidence that proves the ownership of the infringed rights and, as appropriate, the representation to act on behalf of the owner whenever said person is different from the reporting party.

BBVA IT’s receipt of the communication as set out in this clause shall not entail, in accordance with the provisions of the LSSI, effective knowledge of the activities and/or content indicated by the reporting party when this is not obvious or evident. In any event, BBVA IT reserves the right to suspend or withdraw any content which, although not unlawful, is contrary to the standards established in these Conditions of Use, weighing up the legal interests in conflict in each case.

Liability of BBVA IT

The User must be aware that communication on open networks is exposed to a number of threats that make it insecure. It is the User’s responsibility to adopt all the appropriate technical measures to reasonably control said threats and, among them, to have updated systems to detect malicious software, such as viruses, Trojans, etc., as well as to update the security patches of the relevant browsers. For further information you can view BBVA IT’s Security Policy or contact your internet access service provider, who will provide you with solutions suited to your needs. Within the maximum scope permitted by the applicable law, BBVA IT cannot be held liable for any harm or loss caused to Users as a result of risks inherent in the medium used, nor any caused by vulnerabilities in their systems and tools. Nor can BBVA IT guarantee the total security of its systems and, although it has adopted the appropriate security measures, it cannot completely rule out the existence of vulnerabilities and, consequently, Users must take precautions when interacting with the Website.

In particular, BBVA IT cannot be held liable for:

  • damages in respect of harm or loss of any kind caused to the User’s computer equipment due to viruses, worms, Trojans or any other harmful element.
  • Damages in respect of harm or loss of any kind caused to the User as a result of failures or disconnections in the telecommunications networks leading to the suspension, cancellation or interruption of the Website service during the provision thereof. In this regard, the User acknowledges that access to the Website requires services provided by third parties beyond BBVA IT’s control (e.g. telecommunications network operators, access providers, etc.) whose reliability, quality, continuity and functioning are not BBVA IT’s responsibility, nor is it part of its responsibility to guarantee the availability of the service.
  • Third-party information in cases in which BBVA IT acts as an intermediation service provider in the meaning stated by the LSSI, except when it has effective knowledge and the corresponding information has not been withdrawn.

BBVA IT cannot be held liable for any direct or indirect damages suffered by Users due to inappropriate use of this Website or its content, nor does it give any undertaking to announce changes or modify the content.
