Links to Third-Party Sites

This Site contains links to websites operated by third parties (“Third-Party Sites”) that are not under the Endowment’s influence or control.  As such, the Endowment is not responsible for the content of Third-Party Sites. We provide links to Third-Party Sites only as a courtesy to our visitors, and such links do not imply our endorsement or support of any linked Third-Party Site, the material on the Third-Party Site, any organization sponsoring or participating on the Third-Party Site, or any product or service offered through the Third-Party Site. Any mention on this Site of products or services provided by third parties is for informational purposes only and constitutes neither an endorsement nor a recommendation. The Endowment makes no representations and assumes no responsibility whatsoever for any third-party materials, any materials that you may access from a Third-Party Site through subsequent links, or any materials from any website from which you may access this Site. A link to a Third-Party Site is not intended as an endorsement of any views that might be expressed or referenced in the Third-Party Site. Our Privacy Policy is only applicable to this Site, and does not apply to linked Third-Party Sites. Please review any linked Third-Party Site’s terms of use and privacy policies, and if you do not agree to be bound by the terms or policies governing the linked site, we recommend that you terminate your visit to the Third-Party Site.

This limitation applies whether the alleged liability is based on contract, tort, negligence, strict liability or any other basis, even if we have been advised of the possibility of such damage.
