EAGENCY may from time to time give you the option to modify your browser to enable you to access certain requested services along with other applications.

The dialogue box may display a 'high risk' notice. The reason for this is that this modification makes it technically possible for the browser to be used by EAGENCY for other purposes. EAGENCY guarantees to you that such modification will only be used to view the requested service with other applications and (if you have clicked on 'Remember this decision') to view in a similar way any other service you may specifically request from EAGENCY in the future.
