The Ledger Wallet is just software built on a piece of hardware. Therefore Ledger is not at all subject to any kind of financial regulation. We are not in any case custodian of your assets.
Ledger will never have any knowledge of your master seed, private or public. Wallets are sold empty, and an initialization process is required to be done by the user to generate the private keys. This process is done locally and will not send any information to our servers. The Chrome application is open source, and its code can be reviewed here.
