The contents of the website are purely informative, and therefore IRB Barcelona cannot be held responsible for damages resulting from improper use of the products marketed.

IRB Barcelona's liability will be limited, in any case, to the direct consequences of its activity and will not be compromised by mere errors or omissions that may have occurred, provided that all necessary precautions have been taken. IRB BARCELONA will not be held responsible for indirect damages, loss of business, or lost profits incurred by any means.

In general, IRB Barcelona will not be held responsible for any breach or delay in the fulfillment of any of the assumed obligations, when such breach or delay is due to events beyond our reasonable control, that is, due to force majeure, which may include, but is not limited to:

  • Strikes, labor disputes, or other industrial actions.
  • Civil unrest, riot, invasion, threat or terrorist attack, war (declared or not), or threat or preparation for war.
  • Fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, collapse, epidemic, or any other natural disaster.
  • Inability to use trains, ships, airplanes, motor transport, or other means of transport, whether public or private.
  • Inability to use public or private telecommunications systems.
  • Acts, decrees, legislation, regulations, or restrictions of any government or public authority.

Thus, the obligations will be suspended during the period in which the force majeure continues, and IRB Barcelona will have an extension in the term to fulfill them for a period of time equal to the duration of the force majeure. IRB Barcelona will make every reasonable effort to find a solution that allows us to fulfill our obligations despite the force majeure.

These Terms and Conditions are established in Spanish and will be executed and interpreted in accordance with Spanish law, to which the parties expressly submit.
