‘Safe Harbor’ Statement under the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995:
The information on this Web Site may contain certain projections with respect to the financial condition, results of operations and business of the STS or any of its affiliates and certain of the plans and objectives of the STS with respect to these items. By their nature, projections and forward-looking statements involve risk and uncertainty because they relate to events and depend on circumstances that will occur in the future. There are a number of factors that could cause actual results and developments to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these projections. These factors include, but are not limited to, levels of consumer and business spending in major economies, changes in consumer tastes and preferences, the levels of marketing and promotional expenditures by the STS and its competitors, raw materials and employee costs, changes in future exchange and interest rates (in particular, changes in the Euro and the US dollar can materially affect results), changes in tax rates and future business combinations, acquisitions or dispositions and the rate of technical changes.

You agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of Zürich, Swizterland for any claim or cause of action arising out of, or relating to or in connection with these Terms of Use or this Web Site, provided that such exclusivity does not apply to legal actions initiated or brought by the STS.
