Legal Disclaimer

Persons who retrieve information from the SIS website #seinodernichtsein or receive advice from an ambassador agree to the following conditions.

The information published on this website has been carefully collated, verified and edited. The ambassadors have thorough current knowledge, which is continually expanded and kept up-to-date through regular training. However, we take no liability for the accuracy, completeness, selection and currency of the information given.

All information is provided solely for the personal use of the performing artists. Consultations with ambassadors should be seen as an initial step towards solving problems regarding social security. The ambassadors advise the performing artists to the best of their ability and give important basic information. However, the consultations do not replace individual advice provided by specialists. For important and complex decisions, the performing artists should therefore consult a specialist in the given field. 

We have not verified linked websites and linked third-party data, and we cannot be held liable for their contents, products and services or other offers. This also applies to websites with links to this website.

The SIS takes no liability for loss or damage of any kind, in so far as this is legally permissible. No responsibility is taken for direct or indirect damage or damage resulting from accessing the website or accessing links to third-party websites.

What we do not offer

This service aims to make it easy for you to find answers to questions and solutions to your problems. We cannot offer exhaustive advice or solutions for more complex cases. But we can take an initial look at your situation and set you on the right path. We can show you where you can find the further information you may need and which specialists you can get in touch with detailed personalised advice. And it is often useful to first get an initial overview and find out what solutions may be possible.

We cannot take responsible for your administrative tasks, but we will be happy to show you where to find the relevant forms and documents and answer any questions if you do not understand something.

Liability for contents

As a service provider, we are liable for our own content published on these webpages under the applicable legislation. However, we are not required to monitor third-party information transferred or saved or search for circumstances which suggest unlawful activity.

Requirements to delete or block usage of information under applicable legislation remain unaffected by these provisions. Any liability in this regard only applies from the moment when cognisance was taken of a specific infringement. When relevant infringements become known, we will delete the contents promptly.

Liability for links

Our site may contain links to external third-party websites over which we have no influence. We therefore cannot be held liable for this external content. The owner or operator of the linked sites is always liable for the content of these sites. The third-party websites were checked for possible breaches of law when the links were created. There was no evidence of illicit content when the links were made. However, permanent monitoring of the linked pages without grounds for suspicion of a breach of law cannot reasonably be expected. When we become aware of any breaches of law, the relevant links will be removed promptly.


The contents and works created by the website owner on this site are subject to Swiss copyright law. Reproduction, modification, distribution and any kind of exploitation outside of the scope of copyright require the written agreement of the relevant author or creator. Downloads and copies of this page are only permitted for private, non-commercial use.

Where the contents of this page were not created by the operator, third-party copyrights are observed. In particular, third-party contents are marked as such. However, if you become aware of any copyright infringement, please notify us. Should we become aware of any copyright infringement, we will remove the relevant contents promptly.
