On account of the rapid evolution and complexity of the matters dealt with, the Bank does not provide any guarantee as to the accuracy and exhaustiveness of the information shown on the Site. This is the reason why the Bank rejects any liability in case of direct or indirect damage resulting from the access to the information, data and publications set out on the Site, their consultation and use.

Any total or partial reproduction and/or representation of any of these rights, without the express authorization of the Bank, is prohibited and would constitute a counterfeit which can engage the civil and criminal liability of the infringer.

Hypertext links set up towards other sites cannot not engage the responsibility of the Bank, particularly concerning their contents.

As such, the Adherent assumes alone the risks of handling and using his connection terminal by any unauthorized third parties.
