In no event shall Code for Africa or its suppliers be liable for any damages (including, without limitation, damages for loss of data or profit, or due to business interruption) arising out of the use or inability to use the materials on Code for Africa’s website, even if Code for Africa or a Code for Africa authorised representative has been notified orally or in writing of the possibility of such damage. Because some jurisdictions do not allow limitations on implied warranties, or limitations of liability for consequential or incidental damages, these limitations may not apply to you.
The materials appearing on Code for Africa’s website could include technical, typographical, or photographic errors. Code for Africa does not warrant that any of the materials on its website are accurate, complete or current. Code for Africa may make changes to the materials contained on its website at any time without notice. However Code for Africa does not make any commitment to update the materials.
Code for Africa cannot guarantee the accuracy or authenticity of content contained in third-party sites linked from our site and cannot therefore be held liable.
Code for Africa may revise these terms of service for its website at any time without notice. By using this website you are agreeing to be bound by the then current version of these terms of service.
