The Sites and their contents are controlled by TRB HQ and are intended to comply with the laws and regulations of Switzerland.
We acknowledge that it is possible for you to obtain access to the Sites from any jurisdiction in the world, but we have no practical ability to prevent such access. The Sites have been designed to comply with the laws of Switzerland but they are intended for international use. TRB gives no guarantee however that the details presented on these Sites are correct worldwide and, in particular, that products and services will be available with the same appearance, in the same sizes or on the same conditions throughout the world.
If any material on the Sites, or your use of the Sites, is contrary to the laws of the place where you are when you access it, the Sites are not intended for you and we ask you not to use the Sites. If you access the Sites from outside Switzerland, you do so at your own risk and are responsible for informing yourself of the laws of your jurisdiction and complying with them.
II. MEDICAL INFORMATION
The Sites have been designed to provide general information about TRB and its products. The Sites are not intended to provide any instruction on the appropriate use of products produced and supplied by TRB, and the product information presented on the Sites is intended only as a brief summary for the visitor’s convenience in relation to the activities of TRB.
Internet is a global community service by definition and the Sites may be viewed worldwide. The pharmaceutical industry, however, is regulated by laws which limit the amount of information that can be provided on pharmaceutical products and whose effects are territorially limited.
Moreover the registration status of pharmaceutical products may be different in the various parts of the world. In the same way, the texts approved for their packages may vary according to the different conditions of the marketing authorization in the various countries.
The Sites may contain references to products, indications or services that are not licensed or available in every country and may be subject to further local variations. No representations are made that the material and information on the Sites are appropriate or available in all national locations or languages.
References to a particular product or service do not imply that TRB intends to make such products or services available in such countries. For specific product information, you should always consult the local summary of product characteristics and/or product characteristics or instructions for use. For advice on medical issues, you should always consult your local medical practitioner.
While there may be information on the Sites related to certain medical conditions and their treatment, should a medical condition exist, promptly see your own physician or health provider. TRB does not offer personalized medical diagnosis or patient-specific treatment advice.
Please consult with your doctor or other qualified health care professional before using any product discussed within the Sites.
The Sites are copyright protected. All images and information on the Sites are owned by or otherwise provided to TRB. Save where indicated otherwise, the trademarks and logos appearing on the Sites, either designated with a trademark symbol or type form that is different from the surrounding text, are registered or unregistered trademarks of TRB or of third parties and may not be used without having obtained prior written authorization from TRB or the respective owner of the trademark.

TRB assumes no obligation whatsoever with respect to such information or material. You expressly grant TRB the right to reproduce and publicize such information or material and confirm that it shall be free to use such information or material for any purpose whatsoever.

You are prohibited from posting or transmitting any inappropriate, unlawful, defamatory, inflammatory, pornographic or profane material, or any material that could constitute or encourage conduct that would be considered a criminal offense, give rise to civil liability, or otherwise violate any law.
