While Cboe Australia takes care preparing the materials and information made available via the Sites (“the Materials”), it makes no representations or warranties and excludes all liability (including for negligence) in connection with the Materials, to the extent it is permitted by law to do so.

Materials are provided for informational purposes only and should not be construed as investment advice and Cboe Australia shall not be liable for any errors, miscalculations or omissions in the Materials.

Under no circumstances are the Materials to be used as a basis for, or considered as an offer to engage in, any activity or the purchase or sale of any security, TraCR or other financial product. Nor should the Materials be considered as a solicitation or recommendation for the purchase, sale, or offer to purchase or sell any security, TraCR or other financial product.

Cboe Australia may pursue all remedies available under civil and criminal law to enforce its intellectual property rights.
