2. FUNCTIONING OF THE WEBSITE
The Website is an online platform where users can access the sports events managed by RPM-MKTG and register for them.
When registering for the events, using the specific form provided for this purpose, the participant should enter his/her real and truthful data on the form. This is an essential requirement to manage our service correctly. In the context of these Terms, users are referred to as “participants”.
Under no circumstances will RPM-MKTG be liable for the accuracy of the registration data provided by the participants, so each and every participant is responsible for any possible consequences, errors and failures that may subsequently arise from the lack of accuracy of the data entered.
The events can be free-of-charge or fee-paying. The monetary status of the events will be specifically indicated in the description of the same.
Below we indicate what can and what cannot be done when accessing, browsing, registering and using the Website.
In any event, RPM-MKTG reserves the right to modify these Terms without prior notice, making them public, together with the date of publication, through the Website and always observing modification criteria designed to improve the service and provide greater clarity and better protection to consumers and users.
4. ACCESS AND BROWSING
User registration is not required for access to and browsing the Website, although participants are required to fill in the registration form in order to take part in the different sports events organised.
Under no circumstances will RPM-MKTG be held liable for the accuracy of the registration data provided by participants. Each participant will be solely responsible for any possible consequences, errors and failures that may arise from the lack of accuracy or the type of data entered. The RPM-MKTG team may contact the participant at any time so that s/he may demonstrate his/her real age, providing a photocopy of a National Identity Card or equivalent document. If this information is not provided within the period indicated, RPM-MKTG reserves the right to cancel the participant’s registration for the event in question.
The data on the National Identity Card or equivalent document provided will only be used by authorised personnel of RPM-MKTG to carry out the task of identification; in no case will they be used for other purposes.
5. REGISTRATION OF THE PARTICIPANT IN DIFFERENT EVENTS
5.1 Registration for a free-of-charge event
The participant may register free-of-charge as an individual without obtaining any kind of economic gain from participating- He/she may not claim any kind of compensation (economic or non-economic) from RPM-MKTG.
5.2 Registration for a fee-paying event
To register for certain events, the participant will pay a sum specified in the description of the different events.
Regardless of whether the participants register for free-of-charge or fee-paying events, they are responsible for the information they provide in their registration and assume full liability for any consequences that may arise from this. RPM-MKTG will not assume any liability for any actions that the participants may carry out, and will be held harmless of any liability that may arise from any claim for actions or omissions made by the participant that may jeopardise the rights of third parties and/or infringe regulations on intellectual or industrial property, or any other regulation in the applicable jurisdiction.
The registration of minors under eighteen (18) years of age is forbidden, in accordance with that stated in paragraph 12 of these Terms. In the event of a registration by a minor under that age, it will be assumed that it has been done with the prior and express consent of the minor’s parents, guardians or legal representatives, without prejudice to RPM-MKTG reserving the right to make as many verifications as it considers appropriate.
Participants are also informed that, in all the events that are announced on the Platform, photographs and/or videos will be taken during the events. The content obtained in the events may be used by RPM-MKTG for a range of purposes (publishing on the website, on the website + social media, etc.). Registration and participation in the event will mean the participant’s acceptance of his/her image being captured/used for the purpose(s) indicated in the Regulations.
5.3. Delivery and purchase of necessary materials and additional products
A range of materials will be made available to the participants, as described in the Regulations, for both free-of-charge and fee-paying events.
As a general rule, and provided that the Participant has paid in full and payment has been received by RPM-MKTG, the materials required for participation in the event will be delivered together with the race number (bib).
In the event of purchasing further products, such as a personalised medal or a photo pack, these will be governed by the conditions stated in the Regulations.
RPM-MKTG recommends that the Participant should validate any information related to these materials before any use or performance based on this information. RPM-MKTG does not assume any liability for typographical or other similar errors, nor for any possible omissions in the information about the material.
Fee and Payment
Once the form has been filled in, the Participant will proceed to pay the registration fee and, if applicable, the sum for the purchase of additional material, through the means of payment specified on the Website.
After payment has been made, the Participant will receive a confirmation email of his/her registration in the event in question, including -in the event of having purchased additional material (e.g. the personalised medal or the photo pack)- (i) a summary of the purchased items, (ii) the shipping method selected and (iii) the delivery address, if applicable.
If, at the time of making the payment, circumstances arise that prevent the payment being processed, the participant will receive an automatic errormessage. Registration for the requested event will not be considered completed until payment of the full sum has been made.
Fees for events and materials are expressed in euros (€), including taxes and handling/shipping charges. The sum will be indicated at the time of confirmation of the event in question.
6. CANCELLATION AND REFUND
6.1. Cancellation of registration.
Participants may request the cancellation of their registration at any time up to the day prior to the delivery of the equipment, material and, as the case may be, bib number.
In the case of a registration for a fee-paying event, you may request a refund of the sum paid at the time of registration if the time frame referred to in the previous section is observed, and also in the conditions established in the Regulations on registration.
6.2. Return of additional products.
Returns as a result of manufacturing defects.
RPM-MKTG is liable for any non-conformity of additional products such as the personalised medal if this is notified within two (2) years from their delivery. In this case the Participant may return the product(s) in question.
According to the legislation, it is understood that products are compliant when:
• They correspond to the description made by the seller and possess the product characteristics that the seller has presented to the consumer and user in the form of a sample or model
• They are suitable for the uses that products of the same type usually undergo
• They are suitable for any special use required by the consumer and user when s/he has notified this to the seller at the time of signing the purchase agreement, provided that that the seller has indicated that the product is suitable for said use.
During the two (2)-year period in which RPM-MKTG is liable for the non-conformity of the product(s), it will only be assumed that this non-conformity can be attributed to RPM-MKTG in the first six (6) months of this period. During the following eighteen (18) months, up to the 2-year period stated, the Participant who purchases the additional product(s) must justify and provide credible proof that the non-conformity is attributable to RPM-MKTG. In the event of RPM-MKTG’s liability for the non-conformity of the product(s) not being justified and proven, it will not be possible to return the product(s).
Returns due to withdrawal.
Participants who purchase additional materials may exercise their right of withdrawal within fourteen (14) calendar days from the moment when the material is received. This right will be exercised directly against RPM-MKTG.
These participants may exercise this right of withdrawal when they are not satisfied with the products received in their order, without any penalty or a need to indicate the reasons for the return.
Nevertheless, the participant will bear the direct cost of returning the product(s) to RPM-MKTG, both if s/he returns the order in full or decides to only return one or more of the products ordered.
Nevertheless, in accordance with article 103 of Spanish Legislative Royal Decree 1/2007 of 16 November 2007, approving the revised text of the Spanish General Law on the Defence of Consumers and Users and other complementary laws, the right of withdrawal will not be applicable in the event of materials produced in accordance with the consumer’s and user’s specifications or are manifestly personalised products.

7. INTELLECTUAL AND INDUSTRIAL PROPERTY

As soon as proof is obtained that any situation that involves identify theft of a participant is applicable, this will be made known to the Police.
14. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
The use of links on the Internet is one of the key features of its operation, which is why the inclusion of links to third-party websites is expressly activated, provided that these are legal and licit, do not infringe laws, personal honour, public order or generally accepted social norms and are not associated with an economic activity, either directly or indirectly.
In relation to the links published by RPM-MKTG, the company undertakes that their content will comply with current legislation, as well as these Terms, also undertaking to withdraw them immediately after obtaining effective knowledge that the linked content does not comply with any of the indications made.
Regarding third-party links, RPM-MKTG is not liable for content that may be housed in linked websites, these being solely responsible for their content.

The establishment of any kind of link from the Website to an external website does not imply that there is any relationship, partnership or dependence between RPM-MKTG and the person/entity responsible for the external website.

RPM-MKTG will make every commercial and technical effort within its ability to maintain the availability of its services through the Platform. This constitutes an obligation that will not, however, be applicable due to a lack of availability or performance caused by:

The only elements that will be modified are the clauses of this contract regarding the domain in which the Platform remains active.
Nevertheless, RPM-MKTG informs that, despite the fact that it continuously employs its best efforts to classify, filter and select the legal and illegal content published on the Website, this cannot be guaranteed on a continuous basis. If you detect any infringement in this regard we request you to notify us at the earliest opportunity, in accordance with the procedure described in section 9.
RPM-MKTG will not be held liable for the accuracy, integrity or updating of the information published on the Website from external sources. Neither will RPM-MKTG assume any liability regarding hypothetical damages that may arise through the use of this information.
