In addition, IED accepts no liability for the information contained in third-party web pages or social networks that may be accessed through links from any web page owned by IED. The presence of links on IED web pages is for information purposes only and does not in any way constitute a suggestion, invitation or recommendation with regard to such websites.

Intellectual property

The intellectual property rights of the content, graphic design and codes of the website belong to IED and, therefore, any reproduction, distribution, public communication, transformation or any other activity through any media and through any technical means that may be performed with the contents of the website, even where the source is quoted, are strictly prohibited without the prior written consent of IED Madrid, pursuant to the provisions of Royal Legislative Decree 1/1996, of 12 April, approving the recast text of the Intellectual Property Act.

IED expressly reserves the right to take any civil or criminal action under Spanish and foreign law that may be appropriate as a result of the unauthorised use of its intellectual property rights.

Links Policy

You are hereby informed that the IED Website makes or may make available links to Users that allow Users to access other websites managed by IED or websites belonging to third parties.

IED accepts no liability for the information contained in third-party websites or social networks that may be accessed through links on any web page owned by IED. The presence of links on IED web pages is for information purposes only and does not in any way constitute a suggestion, invitation or recommendation with regard to such websites.

Links to other web pages

IED does not control the privacy policies or the practices of third-party websites, nor does it accept any liability for them.

The User acknowledges and accepts that IED will not be liable for external websites or resources, and does not endorse any advertising, products or other materials offered through said websites or resources.

The User acknowledges and accepts that IED will not be liable for any loss or damage which the User may suffer as a result of the availability of the aforementioned external websites or resources, or as a result of the credibility the User gives to the completeness, accuracy or the existence of any type of advertising, products or other materials offered through said websites or resources.

Any User that wishes to add links to the website from their own website must comply with the following conditions:

  • The link may only connect to the page and may not reproduce it in any manner.
  • In accordance with applicable legislation, it is strictly prohibited to establish frames of any type that surround the portal or allow it to be viewed through different Internet addresses or jointly with content external to the portal such that it (i) induces, or may induce, error or confusion in users regarding the origin of the service or its contents, (ii) involves an act of comparison or unfair imitation, (iii) serves to take advantage of the reputation, brand and prestige of IED or (iv) is in any other way prohibited by law.
  • No false or inaccurate statement about Istituto Europeo di Design, about the quality of its services or about its employees or professionals may be made from the website that includes the link.
  • The source website may not use the trademark or any other distinctive sign of Istituto Europeo di Design, except where authorised by law or expressly permitted by Istituto di Design.
  • The website that features the link must comply with current legislation and may not have or link to contents that (i) are unlawful, harmful, contrary to morality and good customs, (ii) induce, or may induce, the misconception that Istituto Europeo di Design endorses or supports the ideas, statements or actions of the source website, or (iii) are inappropriate with regard to the activity performed by Istituto Europeo di Design, bearing in mind the contents and general theme of the website featuring the link.
  • Finally, users that insert contents of other users in their own websites will not be subject to the provisions set out in this point because, in a strict sense, the calls that occur from their own website to said contents are not links to such content or to the portal of Istituto Europeo di Design. Their own websites “call” the code of the contents published by Istituto Europeo di Design and said contents are reproduced on their own websites.

Links to the owner’s channel on other platforms and social networks

Through a series of tools and applications, IED provides users with links that enable them to access the channels and pages of the website that Istituto Europeo Di Design maintains on different platforms and social networks belonging to and/or managed by third parties (Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube…). The sole purpose of including these links in the website is to allow users to gain access to these channels on the different platforms and social networks.

The establishment of these applications does not entail the existence of any relationship whatsoever between the Istituto Europeo di Design and the owner, manufacturer or distributor of the linked platform, nor does it represent acceptance or approval by Istituto Europeo di Design of the contents, products and/or services therein; the owner, manufacturer or distributor is solely liable for such contents, products and/or services.

In no case will Istituto Europeo di Design share with Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Pinterest, YouTube or any other social network that may be set up in the future any private information on its users, with the sole purpose being that established herein and in the website’s privacy policy. In this regard, all the information that the user wants to provide to these platforms will be under their own liability, with Istituto Europeo di Design not participating in said process.

Activation and use of these applications may require user identification and authentication (login/password) in the corresponding platforms, which are completely external to the website and beyond the control of Istituto Europeo di Design. By accessing these external networks, the user enters an environment that is not controlled by Istituto Europeo di Design, and therefore Istituto Europeo Di Design accepts no liability whatsoever for the security configuration in these environments.

Given that Istituto Europeo di Design has no control whatsoever over the content hosted in these channels, the user acknowledges and accepts that Istituto Europeo Di Design accepts no liability whatsoever for the content or the services to which the user may have access on these pages, or for any content, products, services, advertising or any other material available on them. The user must therefore exercise extreme caution in the assessment and use of the information, contents and services existing in the linked channels, and with regard to their own information and that of third parties that they want to share on said channels.

The Owner does not authorise links to be established to the Istituto Europeo di Design website from pages containing illicit, illegal, degrading or obscene materials, information or contents, or, in general, any that violate laws, morals or the public order or generally accepted social norms.

At any event, users may establish links in their respective websites that lead to the website providing the following conditions are met:

  • The link cannot reproduce the content of the website or parts thereof in any way
  • Creating a browser or border environment around sections of the website is not allowed, nor may the website be modified in any other way
  • Making false, inaccurate or incorrect statements or indications about the website and/or, in particular, declaring or insinuating that Istituto Europeo di Design has authorised the link or has supervised or in any way accepted the contents, products or services offered or made available on the website in which said link is established is forbidden.
  • The page in which the link to the website is established shall not contain unlawful information or contents, contents that are against morals and generally accepted decency and public order, contents that infringe any third-party rights, including intellectual and industrial property rights and/or the right to honour, the privacy of individuals and families or a person’s image or any other rights, or contents that violate personal data protection regulations.

Istituto Europeo di Design is neither authorised nor has the human or technical resources to know, control or approve all the information, contents, products and services provided by other websites that have established links to the website. Istituto Europeo di Design does not accept any liability whatsoever for any aspect of websites that establish such links to this website. Specifically, by way of illustration but without restriction, this refers to aspects of their operation, access, data, information, files, quality and the reliability of their products and services, their own links and/or any of their contents, in general.


Providing current legislation in force to this effect establishes the possibility of the parties submitting to a specific jurisdiction, for all disputes deriving from or related to this website, Spanish legislation in force at the time of the dispute will be applicable, and we will be subject to the Courts of Madrid, as well as, where appropriate, the Consumer Arbitration Boards or similar bodies to which we are attached at the time of the dispute.
