Copyright and disclaimer notice

This web site has been developed and made accessible with a view to encouraging the public availability and free exchange of information and opinion. Despite the relatively unregulated nature of the Internet, there are nevertheless a few matters which you should bear in mind when visiting our site.

Searching for information on the Internet

The advent of the Internet means that people like you have better than ever and faster than ever access to a vast amount of information. Of course, the output of any Internet search is dependent upon both the nature of the search engine and the search topic used. You should bear this in mind when performing searches through any Internet search facility. Similarly, you should not expect a search conducted through any search engine to provide you with an exhaustive list of the sources of information on the search topic.
