These terms of use apply to this SABCS Bordet, hereinafter referred to as "our company".  Each user is deemed to have taken note of, understood, tacitly agree to and be bound by the following terms and conditions.  He/she also gives his/her consent to process the provided personal data as specified below.  The possible invalidity of a provision, in whatever sense, does not prejudice the enforceability of all other specified provisions, as defined hereinafter, of the personal data he/she provided.

Liability

Our company attempts to provide the most complete, reliable and up-to-date information.  However, if we detect any errors, they will be corrected or adapted as soon as possible.  Nevertheless, this offers no guarantees concerning the correctness and completeness of the provided information.

No rights of any nature can therefore be derived from the content of this website.  Unless explicitly specified otherwise, the nature of the data is general, and is not adapted to circumstances specifically for a certain objective or individual.

Our company excludes all liability for direct, indirect, incidental or special damage, irrespective of the nature (loss of profit, loss of opportunity, damage caused by negligence or forgetfulness in providing, compiling, editing, writing, interpreting, reporting and disseminating information, etc.) arising from or in any way related with offers and web pages published by our company, regardless of whether our company was aware of the possibility of this damage occurring.

Responsibility for the articles and photographs rests with the author of the article or the maker of the photograph

We cannot be held liable for any direct or indirect damage resulting from the use of information obtained through our company.  The user shall bear the responsibility for checking the correctness, completeness or usability of the data that are available.

Nor can we be held liable for any breakdowns, interruptions or errors in the supply of data or for the consequences thereof (work interruption, damage to your programs or equipment), and any financial compensation is therefore excluded.

This disclaimer does not, of course, aim to exclude liability in matters for which one cannot indemnify oneself under common law.
