  2. Nature of information

    Information, especially financial, published on the Site shall not be considered as an encouragement to invest.

We do not have any way of controlling the content of such third party sites which remain entirely independent of Sanofi Pasteur. Moreover, the existence of a link between the Site and a third party site does not under any circumstances mean that Sanofi Pasteur approves the content of that site in any way whatsoever and in particular the use that may be made of it.
