D.  Information Provided by Cosmoto

Although Cosmoto strives to provide Materials that are both useful and accurate, the nature of the data and other information contained on the Site are subject to change.  In addition, the facts and circumstances of every situation differ.  Accordingly, although Cosmoto endeavors to use reasonable care in preparing/assembling the Materials, the Materials may not be up-to-date, accurate or complete.  In addition, portions of the Materials have been derived from governmental agency and/or third party sources.  The inclusion of such information does not indicate any approval or endorsement thereof, and Cosmoto expressly disclaims any liability with respect to the foregoing.

The Site may include inaccuracies or errors, or information that violate these Terms of Use.  Additionally, unauthorized alterations may be made by third parties to the Site.  Although we attempt to ensure the integrity of the Site, we make no guarantees as to the Site's completeness or correctness.  In the event that a situation arises in which the Site's completeness or correctness is in question, please contact Cosmoto at info@cosmotospace.org with, if possible, a description of the material to be checked and the location (URL) where such material can be found on the Site, as well as information sufficient to enable us to contact you.  Cosmoto will try to address your concerns as soon as reasonably practicable.
