Liability for any legal action taken against the DFID Alumni Association because of content contributed.

We expect many members to have strong views about matters discussed, but the website is subject to the laws of libel and you and the Alumni Association could be sued if you are not careful in what you say. You should not make libellous postings or any postings that are illegal or breach copyright, database or any other rights. It is your responsibility to check this. We do not accept any liability in this respect. DFID Alumni Association shall have no liability for:

We do not accept liability for any damage caused by a virus transmitted from our website or through its content.

Any third-party sites to which the site may link are not under DFID Alumni Association control, and DFID Alumni Association does not assume any responsibility or liability for any information, content, communications or materials available on such third-party sites.
