3. Country Sites
The Site is not directed to any person in any jurisdiction where, by reason of that person's nationality, residence or otherwise, the publication or availability of this Site is prohibited. Persons in respect of whom such prohibitions apply must not access the Site. This Site and the content therein is for informational purposes only and should not be construed as solicitation, advice, offer or a recommendation for any fund, security, or service in any jurisdiction where such offer, solicitation or recommendation would be unlawful or unauthorized.
By accessing this Site you agree to comply with all applicable local rules with respect to your online conduct and use of this Site, including all laws, rules, codes, and regulations of the country in which you reside and the country from which you access this Site, including without limitation, all laws, rules, codes, regulations, decrees, acts, orders, directives, legislation, bills, and statutes pertaining to tax, contracts, intellectual property, securities, e-commerce, banking, technology, computers, fraud, and privacy.
The Australia Site is issued by Natixis Investment Managers Australia Pty Limited (ABN 60 088 786 289), an Australian proprietary limited company authorized and regulated by the Australia Securities & Investments Commission (ASIC) pursuant to an Australian Financial Services Licence (no. 246830). Natixis Investment Managers Australia provides financial services to wholesale clients only, as defined by the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth) and should not be relied upon by retail investors. The Australia Site is directed at persons resident in Australia or at those persons who are otherwise authorized to access these pages. Persons not meeting either of these qualifications should not access the Australia Site.
The Australia Site may include information provided by other Natixis Investment Managers entities as well; however, each entity is solely responsible for the information it provides to the Australia Site. The material within the Australia Site is for general information only and does not take into account your personal objectives, financial situation or needs. You should consider, with your professional adviser, whether the information is suitable for your circumstances.
If you only access the France Site for non-professional purposes, the liability provisions of Article 7 below do not apply to you; instead, such provisions are superseded and replaced by the following: Neither we nor any of our affiliates nor their respective officers, directors, trustees, employees and agents, will be liable to you for any loss or damage whatsoever and however it arises as a result from your own misconduct, negligence or fraudulent misrepresentation. Similarly, we shall assume no liability for any loss or damage whatsoever and however it arises as a result from any third party’s action or from a force majeure event, as defined by applicable French law and precedents.
The France Site is limited to funds and sub-funds (and related information and documents) which have been authorised for sale in France by the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (“AMF”). Council and Parliament Directive (EC) NO 65/2009 of 13 July 2009 on Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (as amended) (the “Directive”) established a set of common rules in order to permit the cross border marketing of collective investment schemes complying with the Directive. This common foundation did not prohibit different methods of implementation. This is why a European collective investment scheme may be marketed in France even though the activity of such scheme would not respect rules identical to those which are required for the approval of this type of product in France.
With respect to the Germany Site, we do not exclude or limit our liability for any damages arising from our gross negligence or willful wrong action. Nor do we exclude our liability for any damages to life, body, or health, or for any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by applicable German laws and regulations.
With respect to the Hong Kong Site, we do not exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, or for our fraud, or for any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by applicable laws and regulations.
With respect to the Italy Site, we do not exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, or for our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or for any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by applicable laws and regulations.
The Italy Site is limited to funds and sub-funds (and related information and documents) which have been authorised for sale in Italy by the Commissione Nazionale per la Societá e la Borsa (CONSOB). Council and Parliament Directive (EC) NO 65/2009 of 13 July 2009 on Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (as amended) (the “Directive”) established a set of common rules in order to permit the cross border marketing of collective investment schemes complying with the Directive. This common foundation did not prohibit different methods of implementation. This is why a European collective investment scheme may be marketed in Italy even though the activity of such scheme would not respect rules identical to those which are required for the approval of this type of product in Italy.
The Terms and Conditions of the UK Site and any information on the UK Site are governed by the laws of England and Wales. Any claim related to any dispute arising as a result of the UK Site shall be made before the courts of England and Wales. With respect to the UK Site, we do not exclude or limit our liability for death or personal injury arising from our negligence, or for our fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or for any other liability that cannot be excluded or limited by applicable laws and regulations. In particular, we do not exclude our duties and liabilities under financial markets regulations or rules which may apply to us (including, but not limited to, the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and any FCA conduct of business rules in the UK).
