The specific terms and conditions of the User Area section of the Website (the “User Area”) are given below. This is created for those Registered Users who register for participation, based on these specific terms, in any of the activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and other initiatives offered in the Participate section (the “Participate Area”), which must be complied with at all times.
Through the Participate Area webpage, participation in various activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and initiatives can be requested. The interested User must be previously registered to participate and/or request to participate in each of the different activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and other initiatives offered through the Participate Area webpage,
For the purpose of registering as a Registered User, the interested User must complete the User registration form associated with each of the different activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and other initiatives offered through the Participate Area webpage, with all the data that may be necessary to validly apply for registration (the forms will indicate the necessary fields, in the understanding that unless otherwise specified all the fields collected will be mandatory to apply for registration). In this regard, interested Users must truthfully complete, without concealing any data, any data that may be necessary to apply for registration. If the User fails to provide all the information required as essential, the application for registration will not be processed. In any case, the effective registration of Users interested in each of the different activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and other initiatives offered through the Participate Area webpage will be subject to prior verification and approval by DCN of their application for registration. In this regard, DCN reserves the right to freely refuse any application for registration , if it suspects that the data entered by the User in question are not accurate and/or that the user’s interest is not consistent with the activity, exhibition, workshop, laboratory, working groups or initiative offered through the Participate Area webpage, for which it applies for registration, or is contrary to current law, generally accepted morals, good faith and/or public order.
Once the registration has been approved, the user in question will be considered a Registered User and will be given access, as well as a username and password, for the User Area. The electronic document(s) containing the various data entered by the Registered User in the registration forms for participation in the different activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and other initiatives offered through the Participate Area will be electronically stored in that User Area, and may be viewed, modified and rectified by the Registered User at any time by means of their username and password. In addition, in that User Area, the Registered User will have at their disposal the access links to the various activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and initiatives in the Participate Area for which they have registered and which are active. Likewise, in that User Area, the User will have at their disposal a record of the different activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and other Participate Area initiatives for which they registered.
The registration form enabled for participation in the different activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and other initiatives offered through the Participate Area will contain, where applicable, the specific additional conditions with which that participation must comply, which, as the case may be, will replace, complete and/or modify these specific user area conditions. The Registered User must, where applicable, expressly accept, by ticking a box, the stipulations contained in the aforementioned specific conditions, and this acceptance is necessary for participation in the various activities, exhibitions, workshops, labs, working groups and other initiatives offered through the Participate Area.
The data protection policy governing the participation of the Registered User in a given activity, exhibition, workshop, laboratory, working groups or initiative of the Participate Area will be included in the specific conditions included in the registration form for the aforementioned activity, exposure, workshop, laboratory, working groups or initiative of the Participate Area, where they will be informed about the data controllers, purposes, data communication and data protection rights. If the Registered User does not wish to accept any of the data processing referred to in the clause that is not necessary for participation in the activity, workshop and/or initiative, they must express their preference to DCN, who reserves the right to refuse the Registered User’s application for registration and participation in the Participate Area activity, exhibition, workshop, laboratory, working groups or initiative in question. The aforementioned informed data protection clause and the Data Protection website include the contact data where the Registered User can exercise their data protection rights. For clarification purposes, if the application form to register for the Participate Area activity, exhibition, workshop, laboratory, working groups or initiative in question does not contain any specific data protection provisions, the data protection policy governing that activity, exhibition, workshop, laboratory, working groups or initiative will be understood to be that included in the Personal Data Policy section of this Website.
Access and registration in the Innovation Laboratory subsite within the Participate Area webpage, will be conditional upon prior invitation from DCN. This invitation will consist of a link or URL to a form, which the Registered User must complete, as well as accept the specific terms of access and use.
Passwords that are provided by DCN or that are generated by Registered Users must be saved by the Registered User with the utmost diligence to prevent that password from falling into the hands of a third party, with those passwords being confidential for all purposes. These passwords may not be provided to third parties, for security reasons. The Registered User must apply the technical and organisational security measures to ensure their security, taking into account that, if passwords are not diligently stored, fraudulent use may be made by third parties, resulting in a loss of confidentiality of the user’s personal or confidential data.
Neither DCN nor any of its group companies will be liable for any type of harm, loss or any type of damage, whether direct or indirect, that may be caused to the Registered User arising from fraudulent use of the passwords provided, as well as the resulting loss of confidentiality that such fraudulent use may entail. In this regard, Registered Users will be liable for use of their User Area by any illegitimate third party that uses a password for that purpose due to the non-diligent use or loss of it by the Registered User.
Pursuant to the above, it is the obligation of the Registered User to immediately notify DCN of any event that may result in undue use of IDs and/or passwords, such as theft, misappropriation or unauthorised access to them, in order to proceed to their immediate cancellation. Until such events are reported, DCN will be exempt from any liability that may arise from misuse of IDs or passwords by unauthorised third parties.
The Registered User may at any time modify the password provided by DCN or generated by it as part of their registration as a Registered User for access to the activities, exhibition, working groups, laboratories, workshops and initiatives offered through the Participate Area webpage,
The Registered User must immediately report it if the password falls into the hands of an unauthorised third party, urgently notifying DCN so that it may be revoked immediately and a new password may be generated.
Mere access, registration and participation in any of the activities, exhibition, working groups, laboratories, workshops and initiatives offered through the Participate Area webpage by the Registered Users means that they agree to automatically assign to DCN, exclusively, for the maximum time permitted by law, without territorial limitation and without third-party charges or rights, the intellectual property rights of exploitation over the various materials, studies, reports, images, illustrations and other products generated as a result of or as a result of the participation and contributions of the various Registered Users in the aforementioned activities, exhibitions, working groups, laboratories, workshops and initiatives, regardless of their medium or support (the “Materials”). Among the rights that Registered Users transfer to DCN on the Materials are, by way of example and without limitation, the rights to total or partial reproduction by any means and in any form, those of distribution (through any model such as sale, lease or loan, use, etc.), public communication, availability, translation, adaptation, arrangement or any other transformation , by any technical procedure or operating system existing at present or that may be created in the future, including its dissemination via the Internet or similar technical networks, which DCN may exercise and develop in its own name and on its own behalf. The above includes the power to assign all or some of those rights exclusively to any third party(s), with Registered Users giving, through their mere access, registration and participation in the activity, exhibition, working group, laboratory, workshop or initiative in question, their consent to that assignment or assignments.
By virtue of the assignment to DCN of the right of transformation, DCN, by itself or by means of third natural or legal persons, may carry out one and successive works derived and/or composed of the Materials and exploit them, for the maximum period of time envisaged in current law, worldwide, by any means and in any form.
DCN reserves the right to disable, remove or delete the Materials created by Registered Users as a result of activities, exhibition, working groups, laboratories, workshops and initiatives offered through the Participate Area webpage, whether in part or in full, if they have reasonable grounds to believe that those Materials (i) are in breach of these Website Terms, (ii) may cause harm to DCN, other Users or third parties, or (iii) are contrary to the law in force at any given time, generally accepted morals, or public order. In that case, DCN will inform the affected Registered Users of the reason for the action taken in relation to the Materials, unless we have reasonable reason to believe that, were we to do so: (a) the law or guidelines of a competent authority would be infringed, or would entail legal liability for DCN; (b) an investigation, or the integrity or operation of the Website would be endangered; or (c) harm would be caused to another user, a third party or a DCN.
If DCN exercises any of its rights of disqualification, withdrawal or deletion of the Materials, totally or partially, DCN’s waiver of the right of exploitation of the intellectual property rights assigned by Registered Users, in accordance with the “Assignment of intellectual property rights” above, will be understood as implicit in the exercise of those rights. Consequently, in no case will DCN be liable for any liability and/or damage to third parties that may derive from those disabled, removed, or deleted Materials (or the part of them that has been disabled, removed, or deleted), for which the Registered Users who generated those Materials or who participated in their creation (i.e., in the activity, exhibition, workshop, laboratory, working groups or initiative of the Participate Area that gave rise to them) will be solely liable.
Registered Users may cease to use and request the deletion of their private account from the User Area at any time, which will mean requesting the removal and deletion of the Registered User data that have been recorded for this purpose, through registrations forms for the activities, exhibition, working groups, labs, workshops and initiatives offered through the Participate Area webpage in which that Registered User has participated, with the option of first downloading a copy of their data. For this purpose, Users must write to DCN via the email address: firstname.lastname@example.org or through the Contact section, requesting the removal of the Registered User from the User Area and the removal and elimination of the data provided by the User.
Without prejudice to the above, DCN may retain the data of Registered Users who request their removal from the User Area, if there is a legal provision that requires the storage of certain data or if the data are useful for the potential claims for liabilities arising from processing and only for their limitation period.
In addition, it is reported that remove of Registered Users from the User Area by the Registered Users will not affect the transfer of the intellectual property rights that they have assigned to DCN on the Materials, which DCN will retain for the period and with the scope indicated in the “Assignment of intellectual property rights on the Materials” section above.
DCN reserves the right to suspend or cancel access for Registered Users and their account to the User Area if: (i) the obligations described in these Website Terms are clearly or repeatedly breached; (ii) it is obliged to do so to comply with a legal requirement or court order; or (iii) it has reasonable grounds to believe that there has been conduct that generates liability or damage to a User, a third party or a DCN. DCN may also cancel access for Registered Users and their account to the User Area if it reasonably determines that maintaining the Participate Area and/or the User Area is no longer commercially viable. In any case, DCN will report the reason for the cancellation or suspension of access of Registered Users and their account to the User Area, unless DCN has reasonable grounds to believe that, if it does so: (a) the law or guidelines of a competent authority would be infringed, or would entail legal liability for DCN; (b) an investigation, or the integrity or operation of the Website would be endangered; or (c) harm would be caused to another user, a third party or a DCN.
In the event of cancellation or suspension of access and the User Area of a Registered User, the latter may only continue to make use of the other sections of the Website that do not require registration as a Registered User, like any other unregistered User of the Website. In that case, the remaining Website Terms will remain in force and will continue to apply to that use.
