Liability for links: Our site contains links to external websites outside our sphere of influence; we can entertain no liability for foreign content on these websites – the corresponding owners or webmasters of these externally linked sites carry sole responsibility for the content involved. We have reviewed these websites for potential legal violations at the time of linking, and did not find any illegal content at the time. Permanent monitoring of these linked pages would not be reasonable without actual evidence of a violation. We will immediately remove any links to any such content if notified of any such violations.
