Hypertext links


The SGBT website may contain links to third-party websites which do not fall within the Bank’s control and which are solely the responsibility of holders of these web spaces. Certain links are proposed solely for the sake of convenience, and the inclusion of a link does not imply the Bank’s approval of the linked website.

Security and the Internet

The Internet user accesses this website through means of open communication networks. He declares that he is aware of the risks and accepts them. It is his responsibility to protect himself from the effects of computer piracy by adopting a data-processing configuration which is adapted and secure, particularly by means of a virus detection and inoculation software program which is updated on a regular basis.

E-mails sent via public networks may not be entirely secure and may be intercepted, read and modified by third parties. Besides the content of e-mails, the sender and recipient may be identified by third parties, who may infer that a real or alleged relationship exists between the sender and SGBT.

Consequently, SGBT may not be held responsible for any direct or indirect damage which the Internet user suffers during or after his navigation on this website, including the loss or modification of files and data stored on his computer or on any medium connected to or inserted in it.

The Bank draws the attention of the Internet user to the following security recommendations:

- Do not disclose your user code and/or password; do not write it down anywhere and change it frequently.

- Prefer the purchase of goods or services on secure " https" websites instead of standard " http" websites. The connection to secure websites is indicated by the presence at the bottom of the screen of a symbol representing a padlock. These indications constitute security guarantees for transactions through encryption of communications. Their presence is absolutely essential when the Internet user transmits his bank contact information in order, for example, to pay for his purchases on line.

- PHISHING : Never answer an E-mail – or click on a hyperlink which appears in an E-mail – requesting transmission of confidential information such as bank contact information, a card number or a secret code, even if the hyperlink appears to come from a trusted organisation. This type of message often belongs to a fraudulent mechanism called “phishing”.


SGBT may be led or forced to interrupt the service without prior notice, wholly or in part. As soon as circumstances allow, SGBT will provide information on service interruptions and will take all necessary steps to re-establish the connection as quickly as possible. However, in no case can SGBT be held responsible for these interruptions and/or delays in re-establishing the service, except in case of gross negligence committed by SGBT.

SGBT is not responsible for any direct or indirect damage or for any temporary or permanent incident caused to the data or data-processing hardware of the Internet user during his access to the website, when he is surfing its pages, or generally, during transmission of computer files and programs which comprise the website to his reception equipment. In particular, SGBT is not responsible for the possible transmission of viruses through its website. SGBT is not responsible for damage which may result from the unauthorised intrusion in his data-processing systems and/or from the fraudulent use of his means of distribution. It refuses all responsibility, particularly in case of misappropriation of data subsequent to an intrusion in its data-processing systems. However, SGBT implements the necessary means in order to prevent unlawful intrusions.
