We can’t promise that the Site will work with all systems, that it will be secure and that all information provided will be accurate. 

We don’t give advice on the Site, just general opinions, and so don’t rely on what we say when you make any decisions.

We take all reasonable effort to test material before placing it on the Site. In the very unlikely event of any loss, disruption or damage, we cannot be held responsible for any loss, disruption or damage to your data or computer system which may occur whilst using material derived from the Site.

We have the right to change the Site and the services it offers, suspend it or stop it at any time.

  1. LIMITATION OF LIABILITY

As far as we are allowed by law we deny liability for any losses of all kinds which you incur from visiting and/or using the Site. You use the Site at your own risk.

However, nothing in these Terms and Conditions excludes or restricts our liability for death or personal injury resulting from any negligence or fraud on our part.

  1. LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES

We don’t control any of the websites we link to and so we can’t be responsible for the content of such websites and we disclaim liability for any losses which come out of you using them.

We can never guarantee that a link will work.
