Electronic Communication (E-Mail)

The Internet is an universally accessible medium. Ordinary e-mail messages sent over the Internet are neither confidential nor secure. They may be easily accessible by third parties and may entail a considerable amount of danger and risk including: (a) lack of confidentiality (e-mails and their attachments can be read and/or monitored without detection); (b) manipulation or falsification of the sender's address or of the e-mail's (or attachment's) content (e.g. changing the sender's address(es) or details); (c) system outages and other transmission errors, which can cause e-mails and. their attachments to be delayed, mutilated, misrouted and deleted; (d) viruses, worms, Trojan horses etc. may be spread undetected by third parties and may cause considerable damage; and (e) interception by third parties.

You are therefore recommended to communicate with UBS by using a secure channel if such channel is provided by UBS. In no event should you use ordinary E-mail to transmit personal or confidential information such as any account related data.

Unless explicitly stated otherwise, UBS does not accept any orders or instructions sent by E-mail or any other electronic messaging system.

UBS shall not be liable to you or anybody else for any damages incurred in connection with any messages sent to UBS using ordinary E-mail or any other electronic messaging system.

Please see our E-Mail Disclosure for more information about our e-mail practices and policy.
