Disclaimer

WDL makes efforts to try to assure that the information it presents in the portions of the content it authors on the Website is accurate. WDL cautions, however, that because of the volume, complexity of the material, the ever changing laws and regulations and court decisions, and significant state by state (and sometimes community to community) differences, and because WDL communicates information provided and created by advertisers, consumers, software developers, publishers, marketing agents, resellers and other third parties, WDL may have little or no control over the accuracy of such information, and regardless of any control, WDL makes no guarantee or representation as to such information, and is not responsible for the information, including its accuracy, currency, content, quality, copyright compliance or legality, or for any resulting loss or damage.
