Disclaimers and Limitation of Liability

Farmsubsidy.org content is provided "AS IS" and on an "IS AVAILABLE" basis without any representations or any kind of warranty made (whether express or implied by law) to the extent permitted by law, including the implied warranties of satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, compatibility, security and accuracy.

The data on farm subsidy payments that is available on farmsubsidy.org is drawn from many different government sources. In some cases the source data have errors which we have not yet detected and in other cases the data has been provided in very complex and impenetrable formats, which may have given rise to errors in the way it is presented on farmsubsidy.org.

While we will strive to root out any errors in the data presented on farmsubsidy.org, unless the European Union agrees to provide a single, consistent and comparable dataset of farm subsidy payments, it is difficult to be sure there are no inaccuracies that escaped our notice.

Under no circumstances will we be liable for any of the following losses or damage (whether such losses where foreseen, foreseeable, known or otherwise): (a) loss of data; (b) loss of revenue or anticipated profits; (c) loss of business; (d) loss of opportunity; (e) loss of goodwill or injury to reputation; (f) losses suffered by third parties; or (g) any indirect, consequential, special or exemplary damages arising from the use of farmsubsidy.org regardless of the form of action.

We do not warrant that functions contained in farmsubsidy.org content will be uninterrupted or error free, that defects will be corrected, or that farmsubsidy.org or the server that makes it available are free of viruses or bugs.
