Content will be available through the Site, either as pages on the Site or as downloadable documents.

All Content published or distributed by EIF is made available for the purposes of general information.

The Content should never be regarded as or relied upon as being an opinion (comprehensive, expert or otherwise) concerning the matters discussed therein. The Content is prepared on the basis of information, data and materials available at the time of writing. Accordingly any conclusions, views or judgments made in our Content should not be regarded as definitive or relied upon to the exclusion of other information, views and judgments.

The data, conclusions and judgments contained in the Content may be superseded following publication.

Any ratings published by EIF have been prepared on the basis of evidence and information available to us. Such ratings rely on available information and are not entirely objective. Decisions about what information and evidence to include in such ratings, or the weight to be attached to any such information and evidence, are a matter of judgment. Other organisations or individuals may reach different conclusions on the basis of the same available information.

Any decisions made by you after having read, received or been provided with the Content are your decisions and we will not make, or be deemed to make, any decisions on your behalf. We will not be liable for the consequences of any such decisions.
