The GCF GENERALE COSTRUZIONI FERROVIARIE Website (for the sake of brevity hereinafter referred to as the "Website") provides users with corporate information on the activities of GCF S.p.A.
Access to and use of the Website implies the implicit acceptance of the following.

Intellectual property

All rights to its content (for purely illustrative purposes: text, images, distinctive marks, audio and video files and Website architecture) are exclusive to GCF S.p.A. or its respective owners, in accordance with current copyright laws, as outlined in Italian Law no. 633 dated 22 April 1941.
For this reason, the contents of the Website may not be reproduced, transferred, downloaded, published or distributed, in whole or in part, in any way without the prior express consent of GCF S.p.A.
Some rights to reproduce or quote material remain valid, as outlined in the aforementioned copyright legislation. Moreover, users may print or save individual parts or extracts of the Website on their own devices, provided that such action is for strictly personal and non-commercial use.

GCF S.p.A. is a registered trademark. The trademarks, whether they identify an enterprise or product, and the logos and distinctive marks that appear on the Website are the property of GCF S.p.A. pursuant to current legislation on industrial property rights, as outlined in the Italian Legislative Decree No. 30 dated 10 February 2005 (Code on Industrial Property Rights).
Other trademarks and distinctive marks on the pages of the Website belong to their respective owners.

The reproduction and use, in any context, form or manner of trademarks, logos and distinctive marks of GCF S.p.A. and other companies in the Group is strictly forbidden.
GCF S.p.A. informs users that the reproduction and, more generally, the unauthorised use of trademarks and distinctive marks is a criminal offence and may result in prosecution.
Names associated in any way with the trademark and name of GCF S.p.A., in whole or in part, may not be used as internet domain names of other websites or as part of such domain names.
Trademarks, slogans, and more generally terms that can be ascribed to the latter may not be used in the HTML coding on pages of other websites: they must not be used as meta-data (meta-tags, keyword-tags, etc.) by third parties to companies in the Group.
Any form of link to the Website must not damage the image or activities of GCF S.p.A.

Limitation of liability

GCF S.p.A. takes the utmost care and attention in the management of its Website and in assessing and updating its content.
The text, information and other data published or accessible through forms on this Website are meant solely and exclusively for information purposes and are not to be considered official, unless otherwise provided pursuant to the applicable laws. They are provided “as is” according to availability.
Therefore, also in consideration of the fact that the provision of services is given without charge, GCF S.p.A. does not provide any guarantee, and declines any liability, either direct or indirect, for any inaccuracies, errors, omissions and damages that may, in some way, arise from the aforementioned contents.

The Website may provide links to other websites or other available resources on the Internet. However, GCF S.p.A. has no control over the contents of these websites or resources and, therefore, does not accept any liability for the contents, services or information, also of an advertising nature, or anything else that may be offered by these websites or external resources.
GCF S.p.A. accepts no responsibility or liability whatsoever for services offered by third parties with whom the Website has activated a link and for any other content, information or anything else contrary to the laws of the Italian State present in the information of the third party linked on our Website.
Although GCF S.p.A. acts with due care, it cannot guarantee, and therefore declines all liability in this respect, that use of the Website may, due to harmful actions by third parties, lead to the transmission of viruses or other forms of contamination.

Information and material sent by users

GCF S.p.A. does not accept or take into consideration any unsolicited material of any kind or nature, including ideas for advertising campaigns, technologies, website graphics or anything else. Therefore, users are expressly requested not to send any material of any kind or submit any ideas, creations, proposals of any sort, etc. to GCF S.p.A.
Consequently, any material that reaches GCF S.p.A. in any form and in any way shall be considered of a non-confidential nature.
In addition, by sending or uploading such material, the related rights of ownership or free and unlimited use in time thereof, including for commercial purposes, are implicitly transferred to GCF S.p.A. GCF S.p.A. shall therefore have no obligations of any kind regarding such material and shall be free to reproduce it, use it, disclose it, display it, transform it and produce other works from the original and distribute it to third parties with no limitations, without the risk of liability of any kind arising out of the infringement of current legislation regarding intellectual and industrial property, for example.
