This is a disclaimer by the UK Trustworthy Software Foundation (otherwise TSFdn, who we refer to as ‘we’, ‘us’, or ‘our’).  A disclaimer is a formal statement that sets out our responsibilities to you as a user of this website, the associated micro-blog(s), and any information which we email or otherwise send to you at your request (in this disclaimer for ease, we will call all these website and emails respectively).

We can update this disclaimer at any time without giving you notice.


We have provided the information and our emails in good faith. But please note that this website and the emails you receive are not designed for your individual needs. They are aimed to help everyone. This means that we cannot guarantee accuracy or relevance except as we have described in our section called ‘Our liability to you’.

We do not accept responsibility for any information left out of or errors in this website or our emails. We do not have any responsibility for the accuracy, availability, completeness or usefulness of any of the information which is available on, or through, the website or our emails.

Except as we have described in our section ‘Our liability to you’, we will not be liable for any loss or damage as a result of, or in connection with, your use of the information contained on this website or in our emails.

Our liability to you

Under English law, we are not allowed to set a limit on our responsibility to you for certain things. These include our committing fraud or causing death or personal injury because we have not taken reasonable care. To the extent that English law does not allow us to limit our responsibility to you, we will not do so.

We do not take responsibility for anything that we have not specifically accepted responsibility for in this disclaimer. This means that everything we do accept responsibility for is described expressly in this disclaimer. No other terms, conditions, representations or warranties will apply.


References we make to any specific product, process or service by trade name, trademark manufacturer, or otherwise, or linking to other websites or material are not endorsements or recommendations.

You must not use the views and opinions of the authors set out within this website and any emails for advertising or product endorsement purposes.

This means that any information you provide on those other websites will be handled by that other organisation and not by us.

This website contains information provided from external sources, some of which may have changed since it was released. As a result of this, it may be sensible to obtain the information from the external website to ensure that the most up to date information is available.
