SELAE establishes, through several tools and apps, links for the clients to access those channels, mobile and web sites that SELAE has on different platforms (Google play, App Store, etc.) and social networks belonging or managed by others (such as Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, etc.). By including these links on mobile and web sites, SELAE aims to give the users an easier access to those channels on different platforms and social networks.
Establishing these means does not imply the existence of any relation between SEALE and the owner, manufacturer or distributor of the platform linked, or the acceptance or approval of part of its contents and/or services by SELAE. Only the owner, manufacturer or distributor is responsible  for them.  
SELAE does not share in any way any type of private information about its users with Facebook, Twitter, Youtube or any other social network; private information is only required for the terms present in the Conditions of Use, as well as in Data Protection Policy of SELAE mobile and web sites.

Activating and using these apps may cause the identification and authentication of the user (login/password) on the corresponding platforms, totally external and out of SELAE’s control. By accessing those external networks, the user enters an environment SELAE does not control, so SELAE will not assume any responsibility on the security configuration of those environments.
Since SELAE does not have any control on the content housed on those channels, the user accepts SELAE assumes no responsibility for the content or the services the user may access on those sites, as well as contents, products, services, publicity or any other material available. Consequently, the user must be aware of the use of the information, contents and services existing on those links, and of the own or third parties' information he wants to share on those channels.
