The material contained in the Website is to be considered "as described", with the possible consequence that it is inappropriate and/or not adequate for the Company's 's and/or User's specific needs and interests.

In such a case, the hyperlinks have the sole function of facilitating Users to navigate, without the content of the Website and the information presented on the homepage of the third-party website being related, and therefore are entirely outside the area of responsibility of CSOB Bank. In addition, the presence of such links may not be taken as an indication or recommendation of CSOB Bank to visit the linked web pages in any way.
