CONTENT OF THIS WEBSITE
All the information provided on this website is provided for information purposes only and should in no event be construed as an offer, a piece of advice or a recommendation to buy or sell a financial instrument or to engage in any transaction whatsoever; nor should the information provided be construed as advice of any other type, for example of a fiscal or legal nature.

CONFIDENTIALITY AND ENCRYPTION
Your attention is drawn to the fact that the data exchanged between yourself and us is transmitted via open, public networks (such as the Internet) that are not subject to any controls or reviews. The data transferred may travel beyond Switzerland’s borders, even if both yourself and us are located in Switzerland. In addition, even if the data transmitted is encrypted, it may not necessarily stay encrypted for the entire duration of the transmission, nor may it necessarily remain encrypted at your end: it is possible that data may be intercepted.
Furthermore, you hereby declare that you have taken note that the legislation applicable in your country may prohibit or restrict the importing, exporting or use of encryption logarithms. In no event shall we be responsible for any violations of measures governing the importing, exporting or use of encryption logarithms. You alone shall be responsible in the event of any such violation. Lastly, your attention is drawn to the fact that information transmitted electronically, e.g. by e-mail, is in principle not encrypted and may be intercepted.

CONFIDENTIALITY IN RESPECT OF USER IDS AND PASSWORDS
You are obliged to keep user IDs, passwords and other means of identification secret. To this end, you must not store your user IDs, passwords or other means of identification in your browser and you must delete all temporary files stored in your cache memory as well as your surfing history.
