About links to other sites

Links to external websites

External links are selected and checked when the page is published. However, we are not responsible for the content of external websites. This is because:

  • we do not produce them or maintain/update them
  • we cannot change them
  • they can be changed without our knowledge or agreement.

Some of our external links may be to websites which also offer commercial services, such as online purchases. The inclusion of a link to an external website should not be understood to be an endorsement of that website or the site’s owners (or their products/services).

Other third party websites which are linked to may be subject to separate terms and conditions and any use of those websites by you is at your own risk.

Links to user generated material

Some of the content we link to is generated by members of the public (messageboards, social media and photo-sharing sites for example). The views expressed are those of the public and unless specifically stated are not those of this organisation/partnership.

COVID-19 Info

Whilst measures to contain COVID-19 continue to evolve, CDS will attempt to maintain a Business As Usual approach, though there may be some unavoidable impact on our ability to respond to queries.
