The APSCo OutSource helpdesk service is dedicated to the specific legal & compliance and needs of the outsource sector. The helpdesks are staffed by experts who provide practical advice and information across a wide range of topics.
The APSCo OutSource helpdesk can only form opinions and provide generic guidance based on the information provided by the user of the Helpdesk. Information provided by the helpdesks should not be treated as professional legal or compliance advice. The helpdesk is not regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority, or any other regulatory body and no professional/client relationship exists between the helpdesk advisor, their organisation and the user. Any advice given is non-binding.
If partial or incomplete information is provided to the helpdesks, the opinion given is likely to differ to that which would be given if based on the full facts. To the fullest extent permissible by law, APSCo OutSource, its helpdesk partners and its advisors (the helpdesk providers) hereby exclude all liability in so far as permissible in law, for any claim, loss, demands or damages of any kind whatsoever arising out of or in connection with the use of the helpdesk and/or any information, opinion or advice given and the helpdesk user will hold the helpdesk providers harmless in respect of such claims.
