Online Guille-Allès Library services

When using library.gg you may access online Guille-Allès Library services that are delivered by a third party. Each of these services will have its own terms and conditions or end user licences that apply only to that service. Users of any service should make sure they have read the relevant terms and conditions before completing that transaction.


Linking to and from library.gg

The Library welcomes and encourages other websites to link to the information that is hosted on these pages, and you do not have to ask permission to link to library.gg.

However, the Guille-Allès Library does not give you permission to suggest that your website is associated with, or endorsed by, library.gg.

Where the Library's site contains links to other sites and resources provided by third parties, these links are provided for your information only. The Library has no control over the contents of those sites or resources, and accepts no responsibility for them nor for any loss or damage that may arise from your use of them.

The Guille-Allès Library accepts no liability for any failure to comply with these terms and conditions where such failure is due to circumstance beyond our reasonable control.

If the Library waives any rights available to us under these terms and conditions on one occasion, this does not means that those rights will automatically be waived on any other occasion.

If any of these terms and conditions are held to be invalid, unenforceable or illegal for any reason, the remaining terms and conditions shall nevertheless continue in full force.
