The data entered into this form is transmitted encrypted to UBS via the Internet. Nevertheless, in order to maintain discretion, please do not include any confidential data such as account numbers. Via this form UBS does not accept any instructions for business transactions such as the opening of accounts, payment orders, trading orders, revocations of orders or authorizations, blocking of credit cards, changes of address etc. Please contact the appropriate office or your client advisor for such transactions. Electronic communication between yourself and UBS and the external company in Switzerland acting on behalf of UBS is carried out on the basis of publicly accessible communication services (especially Internet/non-encrypted e-mails) and the available security standards. With your registration you are also indicating your acceptance of this method of data processing.

The data concerned may also be used by UBS for its own marketing purposes in dealings between the bank and yourself. Anyone (clients and non-clients) may sign up for this service and cancel it again at any time. Newsletter subscriptions can be cancelled at any time, either by clicking on the cancellation link at the end of the newsletter or via the website on which the subscription was started.

By providing your e-mail address above you expressly approve UBS contacting you via unsecured e-mail.

Warning: The use of e-mail can involve substantial risks such as lack of confidentiality, potential manipulation of contents or sender's address, wrong recipient, viruses etc. UBS assumes no responsibility for any loss or damage resulting from the use of e-mails. UBS recommends in particular that you do not send any sensitive information, that you do not include details of the previous message in any reply, and that you enter e-mail addresses manually every time you write an e-mail. The possibility that, as a result of the delivery of an unencrypted e-mail (e.g. UBS electronic newsletter), a banking relationship with UBS may be deduced, cannot be ruled out.
