There is no technology, no organisation, nor any method of communicating information (whether by Internet, fax, telephone or postal service) that can guarantee total confidentiality of the information sent. Therefore, please make sure that the content of your messages is geared to the level of security offered by the means of communication you have chosen.

Some of the documents you see on our web site use formats
which make screen display and presentation easier. Others,
however, use particular file formats, which facilitate the
use of special effects (e.g. animations) or which simplify
page downloads and off-line consultation. To use these special
formats, you require additional software extensions which
are called 'plug-ins'.
The BNP Paribas web site uses two of the most popular plug-ins: Adobe Acrobat Reader, which lets you download and view documents, and Macromedia® Flash®, which lets you display interactive multimedia animations.
You can download these plug-ins by clicking on the links below and following the instructions found there:

For Firefox: click on 'Tools' in the browser menu bar, then on 'Options'. When the new window opens, click on 'Advanced' to reveal more choices and select 'Networks'. On the right-hand side of the window, click on 'Clean the cache now'. Click on 'OK' to confirm your choices.
For Internet Explorer: click on 'Tools' in the browser menu bar, then on 'Internet Options'. Select the 'General' tab, then click on 'Settings'. Click either next to 'Every visit to the page' or next to 'Every time you start Internet Explorer'. Then click twice on the 'OK' buttons to close the options window and confirm your choices.
