Validity of the information and contentsThe information contained on these pages is valid on the date of their last updating.
The present conditions are valid from the date of their last updating. ”la Caixa” reserves the right to modify them at any time, in which case these changes will enter into force on their publication and will be applicable to all users of the portal or websites from this date.
The contents of any of the web pages, especially information and advertising references, make up no binding offer, unless explicitly indicated otherwise. ”la Caixa” reserves the right to introduce modifications or omit in part or fully the current contents whenever it deems appropriate and to prevent or restrict access temporarily or permanently.
”la Caixa” can include on any of its websites contents from third parties and links to web pages of third parties, always with the authorisation of their owners, as well as links to social networks and other information. In none of these cases will ”la Caixa” be responsible for the pages and contents of third parties or for their operation and availability.
Navigation and personalizationSimple navigation through the websites of ”la Caixa” is free and does not require the user to register beforehand. Nevertheless, access, contracting or the use of some products and services may require user registration. In such a case, each of the products and services will be governed by its own specific conditions, without detriment to the conditions stipulated here.
On some of the portals and websites, users will be offered the possibility of personalising their pages, by including different screen backgrounds or configuring access to their favourite products and services, in order to make navigation and location of the resources used more efficient and functional and better adapted to the tastes and customs of each user.
SecurityThe portal and websites of ”la Caixa” are endowed with sufficient certificates, seals and ratifications of security and quality to offer users a secure environment. Notwithstanding, we recommend you consult and read carefully the Security Recommendations that ”la Caixa” makes available to all users on its portal.
Privacy and data protection policy”la Caixa” complies fully with current legislation on protection of personal data and with the confidentiality commitments that are proper to banking operations.
”la Caixa” has adopted the technical measures needed to maintain the requisite level of security, depending on the nature of the personal data processed and the circumstances of the processing, with the aim of avoiding, as far as possible and always depending on the state of the technology, unauthorised disturbance, loss, processing or access.
When a customer or user is asked to fill in a form that gathers personal data, he/she will be informed about the recipient of the data, the purpose for which the data were gathered and the identity and address of the person/entity responsible for the file and of his/her power to exercise the rights of access, rectification, cancellation and opposition to the processing of his/her data. The personal data gathered will only be processed and/or transferred for the purpose expressed, and always with the consent of the user or customer.
So that the information held in our files is always up-to-date and contains no mistakes, we ask our customers and users to tell us as quickly as possible of any modifications or corrections to their personal data.
The cookies policy of ”la Caixa” is subject to the EU and Spanish regulations in force concerning personal data processing and to the protection of privacy in electronic communications. By virtue of this, ”la Caixa” will inform users of the cookies it deploys on each website (“Information about the cookies used”) and, when necessary, will request the user’s consent to their deployment.
Mobile portals and geolocationSome of the web pages of ”la Caixa” are adapted for use in mobile devices, for which reason the presentation and contents of the various mobile applications may not coincide or reflect precisely those of the portal or the various websites.
In addition, some of the web pages adapted for mobile devices or some applications may possess geolocation functions, in order to determine at all times the location of the mobile whenever the user turns on the function. This enables customers to access the services that ”la Caixa” has available that require geolocation.
Access to these services will need the user to turn on the geolocation function on his/her mobile, which can then be deactivated at any time.

Failure to comply with this prohibition will constitute an infraction that can be sanctioned under current legislation.
Nevertheless, on his/her own account and risk, the user may download or copy items exclusively for his/her personal use, provided that this does not infringe any of the intellectual or industrial property rights of ”la Caixa”. In particular, items cannot be changed, modified or suppressed wholly or in part. In no case will this imply any authorisation or licence over the property rights of ”la Caixa” or its Group companies.
It is forbidden, except in cases explicitly authorised by ”la Caixa”, to establish links or hyperlinks from portals or websites of third parties to web pages of ”la Caixa” other than the main page of its portal, or to present the web pages of ”la Caixa” or the information therein under frames, distinctive signs, brand names or business or marketing names of another person, company or entity.
