Terms of Use

Legal information about the contents published on the website studies.cat

Hello, fellow teacher!

Whenever you enter a web page and use it, you have to respect a series of conditions so that we all benefit from the contents included in it. That is why the legal information for this website is shown here.

What is this website?

This site is presented as a tool for teachers and students to find information related to the English language and literature. Many resources are available to read online or download, as well as videos and other materials. And the idea is to increase these materials periodically!

All the contents and public services here are freely available, so feel free to use everything you need in accordance with the terms and conditions of use of the site detailed below.

You probably want to know how you can use this website for your class, because with so many copyrights and other jurisdictions we get a mess. We want to use materials in the classroom that are the most appropriate for our students, but the last thing we would want to do would be to violate any law when downloading content from the Internet. That is why here is how you can use this website without worries.

CONTENTS

CREATIVE COMMONS

All the contents you find on studies.cat are published and maintained by Alexander Ramal Ungria @arungria (also called in this document by the web domain address or simply “owner”). You should not quote me at all! I have to include this information in this section for legal reasons and as the person in charge of the website, but I would appreciate it if you showed that you have extracted the contents from this site, perhaps indicating “Source: studies.cat”.

I am responsible for the contents of studies.cat, blocs.xtec.cat/studies and arungria.github.io, but not of external sites. The contents of the above-mentioned sites are of original creation, with the exception of some of the images, which are the property of their respective owners.

It should be taken into account that these are educational sites and are entirely aimed at the students I've had from the different high schools of the Department for Education of the Generalitat de Catalunya, which is not related in any way to these contents or materials.

This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License.

For the reproduction of texts and images on this educational website we refer to Article 32 of the Spanish Law on Intellectual Property, which was approved by the Royal Legislative Decree 1996/1 (04/12) and updated on March 3, 2019.

The different contents that may have been extracted from different sources have their respective copyrights and this will be detailed. Please, if you believe that the source of any content is wrong or that it should not be there, contact me.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF USE

This website uses the following terms and conditions of use. If you use studies.cat you agree to follow all of them in full. If you do not wish to comply with any of these terms, unfortunately you will not be able to use the site and we reserve the right to temporarily or completely block your access or even take legal action. Thus, the terms and conditions of use of studies.cat include the following:

You can view, download, save and print all the public content on this site—that’s all there is to it! This includes using it for personal use or for your class, but not for commercial purposes. You can also edit the contents to suit and adapt it to your students’ needs, but indicating that it is based on materials published on studies.cat. However, I would also appreciate it if you would take these limitations into account

  • Do not post the contents of this site on other websites implying that they are your creation. If they are already on this site, why copy and share them elsewhere? This way, if we have to update certain contents it will be easier for everyone to have the latest version. Of course, if you have edited the contents for your class, you can quote the source and date of the update correctly or just link to the place where you have taken the resources. This is in accordance with the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International License (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0).
  • Do not damage or attack the website or its services or block their access. This will obviously not be your case (but it has to be said).
  • Do not distort the information that was there at the time it was published.

Disclaimer of Liability

There has been a great deal of effort behind the materials published on studies.cat, but no one can guarantee 100% that they will be error-free. One can get misled and wrong when writing a word or typing a date, who hasn’t? This is why the materials are provided “as is”, i.e. there is no guarantee of the accuracy and reliability of the resources or of any violation of intellectual property or other rights. Nor is it guaranteed that the site is free of viruses or other harmful components, which is very, very unlikely. The owner will not be liable for any damages of any kind that may arise from the use of the contents, materials or other services of the website.

Reviews and Errors

Technical, typographical or photographic errors may lead to changes being made to the contents without prior notice. The accuracy, completeness or timeliness of the materials on the site is not guaranteed, but every effort will be made to provide the best possible service. However, this is not a commitment to update the materials on the spot; I also have classes, meetings, tutoring… and students to look after! And they have a pretty good preference, you know 😜

Interruption of services

Ouch! Technology… how well it works until it fails. The site should be up and running 99.9% of the time, but we have to acknowledge that there are going to be crashes. Sometimes it may be the server’s fault and it may be the professionals who have to revive the page. But in the case of maintenance that we know of in advance, there will be prior notice of when and how long the downtime of the website will last. But let’s hope this isn’t frequent. And because of the processes that apply to this site, server crashes should be a big exception, not the rule.

Names or patents

Certain sections mention some trademarks of different companies, which require that they be cited by law for using their names or logos. Thus, iPhone® and iPad® belong to Apple, Inc. Acrobat is owned by Adobe Systems, Inc. Android, YouTube and Google are owned by Alphabet, Inc. and all other trademarks and logos belong to their respective owners.

Separability

If any portion of these terms is found by a court to be invalid or unenforceable, the remaining portion shall continue in effect.

Entire Agreement

These terms and conditions of use apply to the studies.cat website and constitute an agreement between the user using its services and the owner. These imply the use of the site and supersede all prior agreements. These terms and conditions of use may change at any time without notice, but every effort will be made to provide adequate notice so that changes are known in advance.

Wow! You finally finished reading all these conditions. I hope it wasn’t too much torture and that you understand that these rules are necessary for the site to continue online; now let’s prepare materials to help our students learn!

We have updated our Privacy Policy.
