- The Product Information on this Site is provided for your convenience only, and does not constitute any form of credit rating, an offer to sell (or the solicitation of an offer to purchase) any Product, nor does it constitute a recommendation, or investment advice (or any other type of advice) upon which reliance should be placed.
- Users shall exercise independent judgment when viewing the Site and its contents, to make their own investigations and evaluations of the information contained on this Site or accessible through it, and to consult their own attorney, business adviser, tax adviser, and/or any other professional necessary, as to legal, business, tax and investment-related matters concerning the Products and Product Information contained on this Site. No information contained on the Site should be construed as legal, tax, investment, or accounting advice.

If you wish to receive our newsletters, we require a valid e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and/or that the owner consents to the receipt of the newsletter. No other data is collected. This data will only be used for sending newsletters and will not be disclosed to third parties.

Third Party Product Providers we work in association with
Embedded services of third-parties
It may be the case that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps or graphics from other websites are embedded within our website. This always requires the third-party providers to gain knowledge of the user’s IP address. This is because without the IP address, they would be unable to send the content to the browser of the corresponding user. Hence, the IP address is necessary to display such content. We strive to use only such content whose corresponding provider uses the IP address exclusively for delivering the content. However, we have no control over whether the third-party provider does in fact store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. If we should become aware of this, we shall inform you.
How long do we keep your personal data?
When contacting us via the contact form or e-mail, your personal data provided (such as name and e-mail address) will be saved for the purposes of processing the query, as well as in case there are follow-up questions.

We will hold your specified personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant and specified activity.

Security precautions in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of your information
When you give us personal information, we take steps to ensure that it is treated securely. Non-sensitive details (your e-mail address etc.) are transmitted normally over the internet, and this can never be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
Once we receive your information, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Where we may have been given (or where you may have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our websites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share your password with anyone.
We do not engage in active market profiling.
However, we may analyse the personal information you provided us with (for example your identity, the company or association you work for and your job title) to identify your interests and preferences so that we can contact you with information relevant to you (for example invitations to events that might be of interest to you). We may make use of additional information about you when it is available from external sources to help us do this effectively.
