Accordingly, all such content qualifies as work protected by the domestic and international intellectual and industrial property laws in force from time to time and in no event, therefore, will it be deemed that the exploitation rights recognised by applicable intellectual property law have been assigned to the User.

Therefore, and pursuant to applicable intellectual property law, the total or partial exploitation of any of the content appearing on the Website is strictly prohibited, as is the copying, reproduction, adaptation, modification or transformation of Website content and, as the case may be, the distribution and public communication of that content, including the act of making available all or any part of the content for commercial ends, on any medium and through any technique or technical means, without first obtaining the express written consent of BIGMAT INTERNATIONAL.

All brands, trade names and distinctive signs remain the property of BIGMAT INTERNATIONAL and under no circumstances does entry to the Website confer any right over those brands, trade names and/or distinctive signs.

BIGMAT INTERNATIONAL accepts no liability for the possible existence of links between third parties and other unrelated web pages. Any links provided on the Website are there to provide information to Users of the Website and under no circumstances does BIGMAT INTERNATIONAL offer any guarantee as to that information and/or should it be treated as the party offering any services and/or information offered to third parties via links.
