Links to Third-Party Sites

Occasionally, we may make available in the Online Services a link to a third party's web site. These links will cause you to leave our Online Services for sites or services that are not under our control.

We expressly disclaim any responsibility for and make no guarantees about the accuracy, currency, content, or availability of information found on any linked site or any link contained in a linked site, or any changes or updates to such sites. We are not responsible for any form of transmission received from any linked site. We provide the links to you only as a convenience and do not endorse any other site or service or its use or content.

We encourage discretion when browsing the internet. Because some sites employ automated search results or otherwise link to sites containing information that may be deemed inappropriate or offensive, we cannot be held responsible for the accuracy, copyright compliance, legality or decency of material contained in third-party sites, and you hereby irrevocably waive any claim against us with respect to such sites.
