Third-Party Links

In an attempt to provide increased value to our visitors, SSI may link to sites operated by third parties. However, even if the third party is affiliated with SSI, SSI has no control over these linked sites, all of which have separate terms and conditions, privacy and data collection practices, independent of SSI. These linked sites are only for your convenience and therefore you access them at your own risk. Nonetheless, SSI seeks to protect the integrity of its web Site and the links placed upon it and therefore requests any feedback concerning not only its own Site, but sites it links to as well (including if a specific linkdoes not work).
