Some links of the web site of BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies allow the user to access Internet sites belonging to third parties on which BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies have no influence. Consequently, the latter do not take on any responsibility concerning the updating status, completeness, exhaustiveness and legality of the contents of the links to other sites appearing in the site or of any products, offers and services presented therein. Moreover, BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies take on no responsibility for any damage resulting from the use of any of these links.

5. Data protection
BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies comply with the principle of respect for the protection of the privacy and the data of the site users. The collected data are processed confidentially and in accordance with the rules of good faith. Two types of data are gathered through the Internet site of BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies. They are classified as passive and active data.

5.1 Passive data
You can visit the web site without having to give any information on yourself or your company. Only non personal use data, such as your IP (Internet Protocol) address, the last page visited, the navigation software used, the date, the hour, etc., are gathered anonymously and used internally to highlight trends and improve the present web site. Such passive data provide a detailed report on the accesses to the site. However, BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies establish no tie between the IP address and the personal data gathered.


5.2. Active data

On some pages of the web site, we ask you for data concerning yourself, notably to allow you to send an e-mail message to BTG Eclépens S.A. or one of its affiliated companies or to access confidential data (downloadable documents), as in "My BTG".

The personal data you transmit to us are used only for the purposes indicated on the page where you provide such data or to process offers. Your personal identification data will be used for commercial purposes only within BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies, also through the intermediary of its affiliated companies and branches.
The personal data required to access “My BTG” allow you to download data concerning our products or to receive information.

BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies further undertake not to use your personal identification data for direct marketing campaigns or for unsolicited follow-up activities, unless you gave prior express authorization for their use.


5.3 Protective measures

Your personal data are kept in conditions of complete security. Only the authorized personnel of BTG Eclépens S.A., its affiliated companies, its agents or its business partners, all of whom have undertaken to respect the confidentiality of the data, have access to your personal data.

The most modern technological means are being implemented to protect your personal data. However, insofar as it constitutes an open network, available to anyone, the Internet does not provide a secure environment. BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies therefore decline any responsibility for the security of data transmitted over the web. BTG Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies do not assume therefore any damage direct or indirect that could result from such a data transfer.

5.4 Disclosure of data

Eclépens S.A. and its affiliated companies are entitled to disclose personal data in cases where required by a legal provision or if, in good faith and according to their judgement, such a measure is necessary either in legal proceedings, in response to claims, or to protect the rights of BTG Eclépens S.A. and/or its affiliated companies.


6. Partial nullity

If one or the other provisions of these conditions was not compliant or not applicable due to a legal provision whatsoever, it will under no circumstances cause the nullity, cancellation or failure of other provisions of these conditions. The invalid, non-compliant or unenforceable clause will be replaced by another valid, consistent and applicable clause corresponding as much as possible within the meaning and purpose of the invalid clause.



7. Governing law
The present Conditions of Use are governed by Swiss law and shall be interpreted according to Swiss law. Any litigation ensuing from the use of the web site shall be submitted exclusively to the jurisdiction of the Swiss courts of the place of business of BTG Eclépens S.A.. Users expressly renounce the jurisdiction of any other courts and more especially those of their place of domicile or business.
