Any reliance you place on such information is therefore strictly at your own risk.

The inclusion of any links on the website does not necessarily imply a recommendation or endorsement of the views expressed within them.


Moreover, Opportunity Desk makes no guarantee and does not warrant the accuracy, currency, content, or quality of the information provided by such sites or that such sites are error-free or that your access will be uninterrupted or that material accessible from such sites is free of viruses.
