Privacy and Disclaimer

Apologies for all this verbiage, which isn’t my style at all. I include it to honour the insistence it should be here, given that this site is hosted in the US and created in Oz. The remainder of this page is the dreaded Privacy and Disclaimer statement.

Privacy and Disclaimer is the web site (the Site) of Mr. Vernon G. Wilkins, and is subject to
your compliance with the terms and conditions set forth below. Please read this document
carefully before accessing or using the site. By accessing or using the site, you agree to
be bound by the terms and conditions set forth below. If you do not wish to be bound by
these terms and conditions, you may not access or use the site. Mr. Vernon G. Wilkins may
modify this agreement at any time, and such modifications shall be effective immediately
upon posting of the modified agreement on the site. You agree to review the agreement
periodically to be aware of such modifications and your continued access or use of the site
shall be deemed your conclusive acceptance of the modified agreement.

expressed on the Site by any third party in any way. You also understand that Mr. Vernon G.
Wilkins cannot and does not guarantee or warrant that files available for downloading
through the Site will be free of infection or viruses, worms, Trojan horses or other code

sufficient procedures and checkpoints to satisfy your particular requirements for accuracy
of data input and output, and for maintaining a means external to the Site for the
reconstruction of any lost data.

You assume total responsibility and risk for your use of the Site and the internet. Mr.

Mr. Vernon G. Wilkins does not warrant that access to the Site will be uninterrupted or

You understand further that by its very nature the internet contains unedited materials some
of which are sexually explicit or may be otherwise offensive to you or to others. Mr. Vernon
G. Wilkins repudiates all such material, and will endeavour to ensure that the Site remains
free from it. However, he does not warrant that it be so, due to the possibility that third
parties could post such material by accident or by intent, malign or otherwise, with or
without his knowledge, even despite such safeguards as are in place. Your access to the Site
in this respect is at your risk. Mr. Vernon G. Wilkins has no control over and accepts no
responsibility whatsoever for such materials should they appear on the site, or should they
prove to be accessible through the Site, but he will endeavour always to remove any such
material or link at the earliest possible moment.

Limitation of liability

In no event will Mr. Vernon G. Wilkins be liable for (i) any incidental, consequential, or

such damages; or (ii) any claim attributable to errors, omissions, or other inaccuracies in
the Site and/or materials or information downloaded from or through the Site.

then it is entirely coincidental. If Mr. Vernon G. Wilkins attention is drawn to any such
unintentional coincidence, he will endeavour to rectify the matter without delay, but will
not otherwise be liable in any way for it.

mental, psychological, religious or psychosomatic, to any individual or corporate entity,
