Hyperlinks from external websites to HSBC websites

HSBC is not responsible for the set up of any hyperlink from a third party website to any HSBC website. Any links so set up shall not constitute any form of cooperation with, or endorsement by, HSBC of such third party website. Any link to an HSBC website shall always be an active and direct link to that website and shall be made directly to the home or front page of that website only and that no “framing” of or “deep-linking” to other website pages or content is allowed.

HSBC is not liable for any loss or damage incurred or suffered by you or any third party arising out of or in connection with such links. HSBC reserves the right to rescind any approval granted to link through a plain text link or any other type of link, and to require the removal of any such link to any HSBC website, at our discretion at any time.
