3 Accuracy of Content and Information

Resources in the eTekkatho library are selected by specialists and we hope you find them useful. However, eTekkatho cannot confirm that any Resources are accurate or up to date. By using Resources in eTekkatho, any User acknowledges that information and services offered via eTekkatho may include inaccuracies and/or typographical errors.

Furthermore, the Service Provider does not guarantee that information contained on or available via eTekkatho will continue to be accurate during the time of systems failure. By using such information, any User confirms that they have not relied on any such information and that any arrangements made between that User and any other person, using or named on eTekkatho is entirely at their sole risk and responsibility.

If any links to other websites appear in eTekkatho or in Resources or in the eTekkatho library, the Service Provider accepts no responsibility or liability for the content of that website (whether under the control of the Service Provider or otherwise). Any link is not intended to be, nor should be construed as, an endorsement of any kind by us.

Should eTekkatho link to other websites the Service Provider will try to make it as clear as possible that the User is leaving the eTekkatho website. It is the responsibility of the User to check the terms and conditions and privacy policy on any other websites that they visit.

4 Liability

  1. use of eTekkatho will be compatible with all hardware and software,
  2. use of eTekkatho will be uninterrupted or error or virus free,
  3. use of eTekkatho will deliver any specific outcome for its users, or
  4. defects in eTekkatho will be corrected.

All Users must take appropriate steps to ensure that they regularly check for viruses when using eTekkatho or Resources downloaded from eTekkatho on any device.

Inclusion in eTekkatho of Resources does not constitute or imply any endorsement, authorisation or recommendation by the Service Provider in relation to that material or of any opinions or other statements made within it. The Service Provider can neither monitor nor enforce compliance of third party content with all applicable laws and regulations.

All Users must ensure that their use of eTekkatho and the Resources comply with the local laws to which they and the use of eTekkatho may be subject. In accordance with paragraph below, the Service Provider cannot accept liability where a User breaches a local law.

All warranties, terms and conditions in this regard, including all warranties, terms and conditions implied by statute or otherwise, of satisfactory quality and fitness for purpose are excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. For the avoidance of doubt this includes materials accessed via links to websites (including home pages, web pages or documents they contain) operated by third parties.

The Service Provider further excludes to the fullest extent permissible by law all liability for damages and direct, indirect or consequential loss (all three of which terms include pure economic loss, loss of profits, loss of business, business interruption, depletion of goodwill and like loss) or otherwise incurred by a User or any third party and arising out of or in any way connected with the use of eTekkatho or the Resources, whether based on contract, tort, strict liability or otherwise.

The User will defend, indemnify and hold harmless the Service Provider, its affiliates and its officers, directors, employees and agents from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages, losses or expenses, including reasonable legal costs, arising out of or in any way connected with any breach by that User of these Terms (including the Relevant Licences).
