About the accuracy of the Site Information
The Site Information is provided “as is” and we make no representation, endorsement or warranty as to its accuracy or completeness. We will not be liable for any action taken (or not taken) in reliance upon the Site Information and such action is taken entirely at your own risk.

External websites to which we provide hypertext links are not under our control and we take no responsibility and shall not be liable in any way for their content.
It is a feature of the Sites that some of the Site Information is contributed to us by different third parties and we do not control those parties or their information. Opinions expressed within the Site Information are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent our opinions.
The Sites, like any other, are susceptible to cyber-squatting, spoofing and vandalism. We do not accept any responsibility for, nor liability in respect of any losses arising from, or information which appears on the Sites as a result of, such actions.
Where the operation of the Sites depends on the input of information by you, the service provided by us depends on, and varies according to, the accuracy of such inputted information. We can therefore accept no responsibility for, nor any liability in respect of, the input of inaccurate information to the Sites by you and/or any third parties.
In the unlikely event that you find any inaccurate information on the Sites or have any complaint about what we have published please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We will investigate on receipt and take such action which we, in our sole discretion, determine as being appropriate having regard to all the circumstances.
About the Internet, service interruption, viruses etc.
We and all other web publishers have no control over the Internet, which is a global public network of computers and the method by which you access the Sites. As a consequence and in common with most web publishers we take no responsibility for service interruption or the transmission of viruses or other malicious computer code through the Sites.
The Sites make use of temporary cookies. Cookies are data held in your web browser. This data is only held in your browser during the time which you are viewing the Sites and is automatically deleted thereafter. They do not in themselves identify who you are or your other personal data (ie your name, address, email address and similar information) to us.
They do allow us to monitor your use of the Sites and enable the normal operation of the pages forming the Sites.
Provision of services by third parties
Some of the pages which form part of the Sites may make use of technologies and applications which are provided and/or hosted by third parties. Where you make use of such technologies and applications your information may be transmitted for processing to servers other than those which host the Sites and which are not within our control. We exclude all liability to you arising from any loss or damage you may sustain as a result of such transmission or processing. We make no representation, endorsement or warranty to the accuracy of information which appears on the Sites as a result of processing by, or originating from, third parties.
