The information published on the Website is subject to change without notice and Kuoni makes not representation (neither express nor implied) that the information is accurate, up to date or complete.

2. Disclaimer regarding forward looking statements
The Website or any documents provided on the Website may contain statements that constitute forward-looking statements, which may include, without limitation, statements relating to Kuoni’s financial condition, results of operations, business and certain of Kuoni’s strategic plans and objectives.
Because these forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties, actual future results may differ materially from those expressed in or implied by the statements. Many of these risks and uncertainties relate to factors which are beyond Kuoni’s ability to control or estimate precisely, such as future market conditions, currency fluctuations, the behaviour of other market participants, the actions of governmental regulators and other risk factors detailed in Kuoni's past and future filings and reports, including media releases, reports and other information posted on the Website or in other form.
Users are cautioned not to put undue reliance on forward-looking statements, which speak only of the date of this communication. Kuoni disclaims any intention or obligation to update and revise any forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

4. Intellectual property rights

5.1 Collecting Information
(a) Website Data
When the Website is accessed, various data is automatically collected from the computer's log files. Kuoni distinguishes between master data (e.g. IP address, date and time of access, etc.) and transaction data (e.g. name of file accessed, click path, etc.). Such data is analysed in anonymized form for statistical purposes, for example to see how many times the portal is accessed in one day.
Furthermore, all the data sent by the User (e.g. name, search data, booking requests, form data, etc.) is stored, even if it is not part of a completed transaction (e.g. an order). Such data is deleted after a maximum of 30 days.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, the User can change the browser settings so that cookies are not accepted or only accepted with his/her approval. The Website can also be used without cookies, but it is easier to use if cookies are switched on. Users can delete all the cookies from their hard disk at any time, or deactivate them in their browser settings to prevent the data about your use of the Website being transmitted to Google.
(c) Google Analytics data
5.2 Third Parties
In compliance with data protection laws, the Users data may be passed on to third parties that process this data on behalf of Kuoni or other companies of the Kuoni Group. This may involve transferring the data abroad.
The Users data may be passed on within the Kuoni Group and used by the other companies of the Kuoni to the same extent as Kuoni is entitled to use it. It is treated confidentially and not made accessible to other third parties unless this is required by the applicable law and especially by the responsible authorities, or if this becomes necessary to protect or enforce the legitimate interests of Kuoni or other companies of the Kuoni Group.
5.3 Using the Data
The collected data is treated in good faith and used by the Kuoni Group to carry out business transaction, to improve the functions on the Website, to offer competitive services, and for purposes of analysis, marketing and consultancy.
In particular, the Users data may be used to offer the User a personalised service and to facilitate optimum use of the Website. In addition, Kuoni may send the User offers and information that are of personal interest to the User (though the User can tell Kuoni at any time that he/she does not or no longer want to receive information).
5.4 Personality Profile
Kuoni draws the Users attention to the fact that the consolidation of collected data may constitute a "personality profile" (depending on the type and amount of data available). A personality profile is created when a collection of data enables significant aspects of the Users personality to be evaluated. Kuoni is the owner of the collected data and may pass this data on to third parties that process it on behalf of Kuoni or other companies of the Kuoni Group. This may involve transferring the data abroad.
