Disclaimers galore December 7, 2005

Posted by dr. gonzo in Politics, Technology.

Perusing ilga.gov I found the following disclaimers so I figured I better post it so everyone knows. Although, perhaps if they aren’t sure about accuracy of what they are publishing for public view maybe that should be taken into consideration prior to publishing it on an “official” governement Web site.

The site is official, the information contained therein may not be.

Perhaps I should shut up perhaps not.

First Disclaimer: (can be linked to at the menu bar in purple or blue at the top of the page under “legislaiton & laws”)

Disclaimer: This site contains provisions of legislation from databases that were created for the use of the members and staff of the Illinois General Assembly. The provisions have NOT been edited for publication, and are NOT in any sense “official”. The accuracy of any specific provision originating from this site cannot be assured, and you are urged to consult the official documents or contact legal counsel of your choice. This site should not be cited as an official or authoritative source

Second Disclaimer: (can be linked to by scrolling down to the bottom of the home page and clicking “disclaimers” on the bottom menu bar.

Disclaimer of Warranties and Accuracy of Data
Although the information found on this site is believed to be reliable, no warranty, expressed or implied, is made regarding the accuracy, adequacy, completeness, legality, reliability, or usefulness of any information, either isolated or in the aggregate. The information is provided “as is”. All warranties of any kind, express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability, fitness for a particular purpose, freedom from contamination by computer viruses, and non-infringement of proprietary rights, are disclaimed. Changes may be periodically made to the information; these changes may or may not be incorporated into this site. If you have obtained information from any of the Illinois General Assembly web pages from a source other than the Illinois General Assembly website directly, be aware that electronic data can be altered after its original distribution. Data can also quickly become out of date. If you find any errors or omissions, we encourage you to report them by e-mail to: webmaster@ilga.gov.

This is weird I think. I mean a government website should be informing the people accurately I would think. Maybe I’m wrong. I wonder, are the disclaimers even accurate? Any thoughts?
