Electronic Communication (Email)
The Internet is a universally accessible medium. Ordinary email messages sent over the Internet are neither confidential nor secure. They may be easily accessible by third parties and may entail a considerable amount of danger and risk including: (a) lack of confidentiality (emails and their attachments can be read and/or monitored without detection); (b) manipulation or falsification of the sender's address or of the email's (or attachment's) content (e.g. changing the sender's address(es) or details); (c) system outages and other transmission errors, which can cause emails and. their attachments to be delayed, mutilated, misrouted and deleted; (d) viruses, worms, Trojan horses etc. may be spread undetected by third parties and may cause considerable damage; and (e) interception by third parties.
You are therefore recommended to communicate with PFG by using a secure channel (e.g., the client intake forms provided on the PFG Website) if such channel is provided by PFG. And, if you choose to transmit personal or confidential information such as any account related data by email, you should strongly consider placing additional security on the information (e.g., password-protection).
PFG shall not be liable to you or anybody else for any damages incurred in connection with any messages sent to PFG using ordinary email or any other electronic messaging system.
