For the pertinent purposes, Istituto Europeo Di Design is a company which has been duly incorporated and registered in Spain, with address in Madrid, at calle Larra 14, and tax code: B-80813959. Hereinafter it will be referred to as IED. By accessing and/or using the IED products and services contained in the designpass.me website you become a user, thus accepting without reservation, from that very moment, the following General Terms and Conditions as well as those which, as applicable, may supplement, modify or replace the General Terms and Conditions in relation to certain services and products contained in the designpass.me website. Access and/or use of some products and services will require the user to provide a series of personal data, or to take out a user licence, which will allow him/her access to the corresponding product or service by means of a username and password.

Users should carefully read this legal information on each one of the occasions on which they intend to use the designpass.me website as it is subject to modifications. Similarly, use of the designpass.me website is equally subject to all the warnings, regulations, instructions and user notifications by IED which may replace, supplement and/or modify the legal information contained herein.

 

2. USE OF THE WEBSITE AND ITS CONTENTS

The user undertakes to use the designpass.me website and its contents in compliance with current law, good faith, generally accepted use and public order. Likewise, use of the website for illicit or harmful purposes against IED or any third party, or use which may in any way harm or prevent the correct functioning of the website is forbidden. With regard to contents (information, texts, graphics, image files, photographs, designs etc.), the following is strictly prohibited:

 

●     Reproduction, distribution or modification of the contents without authorisation from their legitimate owners or unless legally permitted.

●     Deletion, manipulation or any other type of alteration of the Copyright and other identifying data of the rights of IED or of its owners, the digital fingerprints or any other technical means established for Copyright recognition.

●     Any breach of the rights of IED and the legitimate owners.

The user shall abstain from obtaining contents from the designpass.me website by any means other than those made available to users as well as those commonly used on the Internet, provided they do not cause any harm to the IED website.

2.1.1 User Registration

The user undertakes to select, use and preserve his/her "Access Code" consisting of a username and password (hereinafter jointly referred to as "Access Codes") in accordance with the provisions of the following clauses:

 

2.1.2- Allocation of Access Codes

 

Users will have the option of choosing and indicating their own access codes. Users may not choose as Username, expressions or combinations of graphics/names which are offensive, defamatory, brands, names and pseudonyms of figures who are of public importance or famous people without authorisation for such use and, in general, those that run counter to the law, morality and public order.

 

Istituto Europeo Di Desing, S.L reserves the right to remove or suspend any username which meets any of the aforementioned characteristics and also any user who is not up to date with payment of his/her invoices.

 

If lost, Access Codes are reallocated on a random and automatic basis and will be sent to the user's email account immediately after being requested on the website, with the only criterion used for this purpose being the non-existence of previous Access Codes which are identical to those selected by the user.

 

If the user does not make a choice, the Access Codes may be allocated automatically by Istituto Europeo Di Desing, S.L.

 

2.1.3- Use and Custody

 

The user undertakes to make legal and diligent use of the access codes, as well as not to disclose them to any third party. Verification that the codes have been transferred to other companies or persons other than those appearing as authorised in the Agreement will be grounds for termination of the Agreement. Istituto Europeo Di Desing, S.L. may monitor the IPs associated with the "Access Codes" which access our restricted area so as to ensure the security of the information housed on our Internet platforms.

 

The Registered User undertakes to inform the Webmaster of Istituto Europeo Di Desing, S.L. as soon as possible at the email address: info@designpass.me, in the event of the loss or theft of the Access Codes, as well as any possible risk of access to such codes by a third party.

 

These Access Codes may only be used by authorised users. Istituto Europeo Di Desing, S.L. may suspend this service for users who are not authorised.

 

Istituto Europeo Di Desing, S.L. is exempt from any liability which may accrue for damages caused or suffered as a result of fraudulent use or a lack of diligence in the safeguarding and custody of the access codes, loss or any use contravening the provisions of these General Conditions.

 

Istituto Europeo Di Desing, S.L. has implemented the highest security measures which are available to it so that any sharing of information is conducted fully encrypted and to ensure that commercial communications and documentation transactions are performed with full security.
