  • 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 viewed by third parties, lost, intercepted or altered. E-mails may circulate across national borders, even if both sender and recipient are located in the same country.

    You are therefore recommended to communicate with GSEM by using a secure channel if such channel is provided by GSEM. 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, GSEM does not accept any orders or instructions sent by E-mail or any other electronic messaging system.

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

    To the extent that any provision of these Terms of Use is found by any competent court or authority to be invalid, unlawful or unenforceable in any jurisdiction, that provision shall be deemed not to be part of this disclaimer but such finding shall not affect the validity, lawfulness or enforceability of the remainder of these Terms of Use in that jurisdiction, nor shall it affect the validity, lawfulness or enforceability of these Terms of Use in any other jurisdiction.

  • Conflict with Additional Terms

    Certain web pages or areas on the GSEM Website may contain additional terms, conditions, disclosures and disclaimers (together “Additional Terms”). In the event of a conflict between these Terms of Use and the Additional Terms, the Additional Terms will govern for those web pages or areas.
