How cookies work
Cookies are small text files stored by the browser in a dedicated directory on the user’s computer. Cookies store text entered into form fields on a website, for example, so the text does not have to be entered again on your next visit to the website or if you switch between different functions on the website.

Cookie settings
You are free to decide whether our website’s server may store cookies on your computer or not. You may adjust your browser settings at any time to prevent cookies from being accepted or stored. You may instead choose to have a warning appear each time before accepting a cookie or adjust the browser settings to only accept cookies from certain websites. Moreover, you may delete cookies that have already been saved at any time.
We wish to point out that your use of certain functions of our website may be restricted or prevented if you reject cookies from our website. To make it easier to use our website, we therefore recommend that you adjust your browser settings to accept cookies from our website.

7. Web analysis service

R&M uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which analyze how users use a website. The information produced by the cookie about the usage of this website (including the user IP address) is sent to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Google will use this information in order to evaluate your usage of the website, to compile reports about website activity for the website operator and to provide further services related to the use of the website and internet.

8. Use of external content on www.rdm.com

Content embedded as part of R&M’s web presence under the domain www.rdm.com may have been obtained from external sources. When you request content embedded under the domain www.rdm.com , your browser connects directly to the servers of the external source. Content from the external source is sent straight to your browser and displayed on this website. The external source then receives the information that you have requested from the R&M website. The external source is able to register your web activity.

9. Liability

This website has been compiled with the greatest of care. However, we cannot guarantee that the information contained therein is accurate and free of errors. Liability for damages as a direct or indirect result of using this website and/or the information contained therein is excluded, insofar as this is legally possible.

Information on the R&M website may contain specifications or general descriptions of the technical features of products, which may not always hold true under certain circumstances (e.g. due to product modifications). The desired product features must therefore always be confirmed in each individual case at the time of purchase.

The R&M website may contain hyperlinks to third-party websites. R&M neither accepts responsibility for the content of these websites, nor endorses these websites or their content, as R&M has no control over the linked information and is also not responsible for the content and information contained therein. Users access such websites at their own risk.

Although R&M makes every effort to keep its website free of malware, R&M cannot guarantee that its website is malware-free. Prior to downloading any information, software or documentation, users must take reasonable security precautions and use a virus scanner for their own protection and to prevent malware from being distributed on the R&M website.

R&M AG and/or its subsidiaries operate and are responsible for the individual webpages of the R&M website. The webpages take into account the requirements of the country in which the company responsible is headquartered. R&M accepts no responsibility for information, software and/or documentation accessed or downloaded from the R&M website outside of the country in question. Users that access the R&M website outside of the country in question are exclusively responsible for complying with the law applicable in the country from which the website is accessed. It is not permitted to access information, software and/or documentation on the R&M website from countries where said access is illegal. In such cases and in cases where users wish to enter into a commercial relationship with R&M, users should contact the R&M representative in the appropriate country.

10. Compliance with export control regulations

Users that disseminate information, software and documentation provided by R&M to third parties must comply with the applicable national and international (re-)export control law regulations. In any case, the (re-)export control regulations of Switzerland, the European Union and the United States of America must be observed in such dissemination.

Prior to dissemination, users must take reasonable measures to verify and ensure in particular that:

Such dissemination to third parties or provision of other commercial resources relating to the information, software and documentation made available by R&M does not breach any embargo by Switzerland, the European Union, the United States of America and/or the United Nations – also taking into consideration any restrictions on domestic transactions and any circumvention prohibition;
Such information, software and documentation made available by R&M are not intended for any armament, nuclear or weapons technology-related usage that is prohibited or subject to authorization, unless such necessary authorization exists;
The regulations of all applicable sanctions lists of the European Union and the United States of America concerning trade with the companies, persons and organizations named therein are complied with.
If required to enable authorities or R&M to conduct export control checks, users must upon request promptly provide R&M with all information relating to the end user, the final destination and the intended use of information, software and documentation provided by R&M, as well as any export control restrictions that apply in this regard.

Users shall hold R&M entirely harmless against any claims enforced against R&M by authorities or third parties due to non-compliance with the aforesaid export control law regulations on the part of the user and undertake to indemnify R&M against any damages and expenses incurred as a result, unless the user is not responsible for a breach of duty. This does not imply a reversal of the burden of proof.

R&M’s contractual performance is subject to the condition that performance is not impeded by any national or international provisions on foreign trade law or any embargos and/or sanctions.

11. Applicable law

Swiss law applies exclusively to these Terms and Conditions of Use and to any disputes that may arise from or in association with the relationship between R&M and users, to the exclusion of the conflicts of law provisions and the provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods (CISG).
