Intellectual Property and Industrial Property

All the content displayed on the Website, including but not limited to logos, icons, buttons, software, videos, designs, presentations, drawings, texts, graphics, trade names, trademarks or any other signs that may generate intellectual, industrial or image rights, are the exclusive property of Sports Law Hub, or of third parties with whom an agreement has been reached for their use, and are subject to intellectual and industrial property rights protected by Spanish and international legislation.

Under no circumstances will it be understood that accessing, browsing and using the Website, or purchasing or participating in a Training Activity, entails the waiver, transmission, licence or total or partial transfer of said rights by Sports Law Hub. Unless otherwise agreed with Sports Law Hub, the User only has a right to use the content and/or services enabled on the Website strictly within Spain.

All intellectual and industrial property rights are reserved, as are any others which may pertain to the content, intangible assets and/or services of the Website and the Training Activities.

Privacy and Data Protection Policy

Any personal data which Users provide during the use of the Website or participation in any of the Training Activities will be processed in accordance with the Privacy Policy.

Training Activities

Sports Law Hub is a private company not linked to any university or educational or training centre and, therefore, the certificates, diplomas or similar issued by Sports Law Hub at the end of the Training Activities are strictly private. They are not recognised by public or private entities outside Sports Law Hub, so being awarded the aforementioned certificate or diploma does not imply the recognition or positive assessment of the Training Activity by any third party. Notwithstanding the above, in some cases, where explicitly indicated, the Training Activities could benefit from certain incentives, such as those relating to certain types of subsidised training.

Notwithstanding the above, some Training Activities may be provided jointly, in coordination or with the support of third parties such as universities or educational or training centres, or sports entities. In such a case, the certificates, diplomas or similar could also be issued with the recognition or validation of said entities, should this be explicitly indicated in the Training Activity.

Each Training Activity may be subject to specific terms and conditions. Before purchasing or enrolling for any Training Activity, the User should carefully read the applicable terms and conditions.

Users must be at least eighteen years old on the date of purchasing or enrolling for the Training Activity. Otherwise, they must have the explicit authorisation of their guardians or legal representatives. The User declares and guarantees to have full legal capacity to purchase or enrol for the Training Activity.

There may need to be a minimum number of confirmed participants before each Training Activity takes place. Likewise, on some occasions, participation in the Training Activities may depend on compliance with certain requirements, as explained in the details of the Training Activity.

The confirmation and/or participation of a User in a paid Training Activity will always depend on Sports Law Hub receiving payment of the entire amount from the User.

The Training Activities may be free of charge or may involve a cost for the User. Unless otherwise indicated, the price detailed in the Training Activity will only include access to the teaching sessions, whether online or in person. It is the User’s responsibility to inform Sports Law Hub if they have a special deal, coupon, or discount before paying for the Training Activity. There will be no right to refund of any kind once the User’s participation in the Training Offer has been confirmed, unless the Training Activity is cancelled outrightly by Sports Law Hub. In such a case, Sports Law Hub will give the User the opportunity to choose between receiving a voucher equivalent to the amount paid for the cancelled Training Activity or the corresponding refund.

The User will always foster a cordial and respectful environment during the Training Activities so as to ensure the proper development and maximum benefit of each Training Activity, and will also allow other users to engage in order to encourage the academic enrichment of participants at all times.

It is the User’s responsibility to provide accurate and up-to-date information about their personal details and professional profile when required for participation in a Training Activity. They will also ensure that they are in a position to effectively participate in the Training Activity, including, but not limited to, booking flights and accommodation or securing the corresponding visas or permits when necessary.

At any time during any Training Activity, Sports Law Hub may exclude a User, without them being entitled to any kind of refund or compensation, if the User is found to have breached these Terms or Conditions or any of the requirements specified to participate in a Training Activity.

Sports Law Hub regularly reviews the content and information made available to Users on the Website and in all Training Activities, counting on support from professionals specialised in the topics on offer, but cannot fully guarantee that they are always accurate or up to date. If a User participating in a Training Activity finds that the syllabus does not reflect the content previously announced by Sports Law Hub, they may contact us indicating the defects and send documents showing where they can be seen. Sports Law Hub will weigh up the circumstances of the specific case and, where appropriate, provide solutions to the User accordingly.

Sports Law Hub will not assume responsibility for hypothetical damages which may arise from the use of the aforementioned information or academic materials received by the User as part of a Training Activity. Under no circumstances will the aforementioned content, materials, opinions or comments of teachers and/or links provided to Users by the teaching team be considered as a recommendation, sponsorship, promotion, or advertisement by Sports Law Hub.

Sports Law Hub will not assume any liability for direct or indirect damages, consequential damages, or loss of profit if a Training Activity is suspended or cancelled due to force majeure. This concept includes cancellation due to failure to reach he minimum number of students or due to travel or accommodation issues encountered by international teachers on the dates initially proposed.

If a Training Activity is suspended or cancelled by Sports Law Hub, the maximum amount that the User will be entitled to claim from Sports Law Hub is equivalent to the price of the Training Activity paid by the User to Sports Law Hub. Under no circumstances will the User be entitled to claim from Sports Law Hub the payment of any expenses other than the amount of the Training Activity, such as connectivity, travel, airline tickets, subsistence, or accommodation expenses. Sports Law Hub recommends the User to buy airline tickets or accommodation with flexible conditions if the Training Activity includes face-to-face teaching sessions overseas which require the User to travel.

Sports Law Hub does not guarantee that its Training Activities will increase the User’s chances of being recruited, receiving new job offers and opportunities, or enjoying salary increases or any other kind of professional benefit.

Except for the stipulations of this document, and insofar as is allowed by law, any other guarantees are excluded by Sports Law Hub, whether explicit or tacit, legal or of any other type, including, but not limited to, the implicit guarantees of the Training Activities, quality, and suitability to a User’s specific goal. Therefore, neither Sports Law Hub nor any of its workers, partners, collaborators, or interviewees will be liable for any loss or damages, whether direct, indirect, special, incidental or consequential. Neither will they be liable for the loss of opportunities, profit, or contracts, or for the lack of accuracy, usefulness, or incorrectness of the information and/or the content or training received by the User.

Acquisition of Training Activities

Each Training Activity may be subject to specific terms and conditions, which will be displayed on the information screen about the Training Activity. Before purchasing or registering for any Training Activity, the User must read the applicable terms and conditions carefully.

Each Training Activity shall specify its characteristics and price. Unless expressly stated otherwise in any Training Activity, prices will be shown in Euros and include applicable indirect taxes. The price of the same Training Activity may vary from one week to another depending on the level of demand. The User accepts this circumstance and the price in force at the time the User makes the purchase shall be considered valid.

Training Activities may be purchased by bank transfer, credit or debit card, Bizum, or in accordance with any other means of payment that may be available at any given time. Some Training Activities may offer the possibility to pay in instalments. At Sports Law Hub we are concerned about User security. For this reason, we have implemented the secure online payment platform Redsys as our electronic payment system, although this may change for operational reasons.

The purchase of a Training Activity shall be deemed to be formalised once full or partial payment has been made (depending on the options available in each case), which shall be confirmed by sending a confirmation e-mail to the address provided by the User. It is the responsibility of the User to contact Sports Law Hub if no confirmation email has been received within 24 hours of purchase.

In the event that the User selects the split payment option when purchasing a Training Activity, the User may choose to pay for the subscription to the desired Training Activity in instalments under the specific conditions shown on the screen once this option has been selected. The amount to be financed with interest, the duration of the financing, and the amount of the instalments to be paid during the selected period shall be disclosed in all cases.

In the event that financing is not offered by Sports Law Hub, the User who has chosen this option enters into a separate contract with the relevant entity. In this case, the User understands and agrees that he/she freely enters into such contract with the third party entity and that Sports Law Hub shall at no time be liable for any issues arising from such financing.

In the case of payment in instalments, the User must make each of the agreed regular payments. In the case of any failure to comply, Sports Law Hub may deny the User access to the Training Activity at any time during the Training Activity, without the User being entitled to any claim or refund of any kind. Sports Law Hub reserves the right to reclaim all outstanding amounts due in relation to the purchase price of such Training Activity.

All personal data provided in the process of purchasing a Training Activity will be treated in accordance with the Privacy Policy.

Returns

Without prejudice to the User’s right of withdrawal as set out in these Terms and Conditions, there shall be no right to a refund of any kind once the User’s participation in the Training Activity is confirmed, except in cases where the Training Activity is cancelled by Sports Law Hub in its entirety, in which case Sports Law Hub will give the User the choice between a voucher for the amount paid for the cancelled Training Activity, or a refund.

The maximum amount that the User shall be entitled to claim from Sports Law Hub in any case of suspension or cancellation of any Training Activity by Sports Law Hub is the equivalent of the price of the Training Activity paid by the User to Sports Law Hub. Under no circumstances will the User be entitled to claim from Sports Law Hub the payment of any expenses other than the amount of the Training Activity, such as connectivity, travel, airline tickets, subsistence, or accommodation expenses. Sports Law Hub recommends the booking of flight tickets or accommodation with flexible conditions in cases where the Training Activity includes the delivery of face-to-face teaching sessions at an international level that require Users to travel.

Right of withdrawal

Except in those cases in which, due to the characteristics of the Training Activity, the right of withdrawal does not apply (in which case the User will be informed in advance at the time of purchase), all Users who have purchased a Training Activity may exercise their right of withdrawal within a maximum period of 14 calendar days from the purchase of the Training Activity, without the need for justification.

To exercise the right of withdrawal, Users must write a request to education@sportslawhub.com specifying that they wish to exercise their right of withdrawal from the contracted Training Activity.

Notwithstanding the above, based on the applicable legislation (Royal Legislative Decree 1/2007, of 16 November, approving the revised text of the General Law for the Defence of Consumers and Users, and Directive 2011/83/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 October 2011 on the rights of consumers) we inform the User that he/she may not exercise the right of withdrawal from Online Training Activities that the User has started within the period of 14 days to exercise this right.

Any complaint or grievance can be submitted to the European Consumer Centre by clicking here.
