The City of Biel/Bienne takes every appropriate measure to make sure the website is available and works smoothly, but cannot provide complete assurance that such will always be the case. The City of Biel/Bienne cannot therefore guarantee that its electronic information and the associated features (such as a search function) will be available at all times and work glitch-free and that the requested information can be downloaded smoothly and free of any errors.
