When the Terms and Conditions or the Privacy Policy are substituted or amended, they shall be published on the Website and/or a notice of the above shall be provided through that channel.

The user is encouraged to periodically consult the Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy, as they may be subject to change; they may consult the most recent version under “Conditions of Use of the Website”.

9. Right of LALIGA to make changes to the website

LALIGA reserves the right to make, without prior notice, the changes it believes necessary to the Website, including the amendment, erasure or addition of Content, Material and services provided, in addition to the way in which they are presented or located.

Therefore, if any of the Content or Material or elements included in the Website are considered unlawful in any other country, access thereto and their use by the User is prohibited; in the event that this should occur, the User shall be solely responsible and shall be required to fulfil and observe the Laws applicable to these countries.

The use of the Website by Users in a specific country shall be carried out under their responsibility. Furthermore, the User is hereby informed that it is possible that some of the functions of the Website may not be available and/or work properly in all countries due to technical and/or legal restrictions.

11. Applicable law and jurisdiction

The relationships established between LALIGA and the User shall be governed by the provisions in force in terms of the applicable legislation and the competent authority. However, for cases in which the regulation provides for the possibility of the parties being subject to a jurisdiction, LALIGA and the User shall submit all disputes and/or lawsuits to the Courts of the city of Madrid, expressly rejecting any other jurisdiction that they may be entitled to.
