IPAVIETNAM is not responsible for Publication Release Content in any way, including without limitation, any copyright, trademark, publicity, privacy, contract or other rights clearance, or the accuracy, timeliness, integrity, quality, safety, appropriateness or other aspect of any information or other content contained therein. You are solely responsible for verifying the accuracy and completeness of Publication Release Content, and for determining if any permissions are necessary to use the Publication Release Content, and, if so, for securing those permissions prior to your use of the Publication Release Content. If you choose to rely on or otherwise use Publication Release Content in any way you do so solely at your own risk and without any representation or warranty whatsoever from IPAVIETNAM, its affiliates or its service providers.

Guarantee

The content is only for general information, and we provide it as it becomes available. We take reasonable care to check that the content is accurate and complete before we publish it on the website. However, because we get the content from a number of different sources - and because of the issues involved with providing information through the Internet - we cannot guarantee that the content will always be accurate, available, complete or fit for any particular purpose.

We do not guarantee that the content is free from viruses, or that you will always be able to use the website without any interruption or error. If you download any content to your computer or take the content from the website in any other way, you do so at your own risk. We will not be responsible for any damage to your computer or any of the information on it.

We do not accept any responsibility for any mistakes, errors or other faults in the website and the content, or for how you use the website and the content.

However, nothing in these terms removes or limits our liability for death or personal injury caused by our negligence or for any liability which we cannot limit or exclude under the relevant law.

Although we may make this material available, we do not in any way recommend, endorse or promote it. If you have any complaints about the third-party material we make available, you should contact the relevant third party.

Other matters

If any court having the appropriate authority finds that any of these terms are not valid, this will not affect the validity of any of the other terms in this notice. If you or we fail to take advantage of any right we have under these terms, it does not mean you or we are giving up that right.
