2. Nature of our website
Our website is a portal by which we promote our services to clients and candidates alike; where visitors can review the current positions that we are handling and where potential candidates can apply to specific roles (the Positions), or register their CVs for the future. Our website describes the Positions and how to make contact in more detail. Our website is controlled and operated by us from our offices in England.
3. Applicability of online positions
Where advertisements and Positions published on the website are supplied by third parties, you understand that we do not control or endorse such content in any way. You assume total responsibility and risk for your use of our website and use of all information contained within it and your reliance upon it.
We have used our best endeavours to ensure that our website is kept up to date and that it complies with UK laws. However, we make no representations that the material or information on our website is up to date, appropriate or available for use in locations outside the UK. Those who visit our website from other locations do so on their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws. If use of our website and/or viewing of it, or use of any material or content on our website or services, or advertisements offered through our website are contrary to or infringe any applicable law in your jurisdiction(s), you are not authorised to view or use our website and you must exit immediately.
Simpson Crowden makes no representations and gives no warranties, express or implied that making the Positions available in any particular jurisdiction outside the UK is permitted under any applicable non-UK laws or regulations. Accordingly, if making the Positions or any part available in your jurisdiction or to you (by reason of nationality, residence or otherwise) is prohibited, those Positions are not offered to you.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, we exclude all express or implied terms, conditions, warranties, representations or endorsements whatsoever with regard to any information (including without limitation the Positions), on our website or any information or service provided through our website.

We accept no liability for any indirect or consequential loss or damage, or for any loss of data, profit, revenue or business (whether direct or indirect) in each case, however caused, even if foreseeable. In circumstances where you suffer loss or damage arising out of or in connection with the viewing, use or performance of our website or its contents other than as a direct result of applying or taking up one of the Positions (which shall be subject to the exclusions and limitation of liability set out in these terms and conditions), we accept no liability for this loss or damage.
