endorsement by us of such website. Accordingly, we do not make any
warranty regarding such third-party websites and we will not be liable for any
loss or damage caused by the use of such websites. In addition, when you
access any third-party website, please understand that your rights while
accessing and using those websites will be governed by the privacy notice

we must follow in the future, we will inform you about that practice in a revised
version of this privacy notice.
