The information contained in this website is for general information purposes only. The information is provided by the Ministry of Finance and Planning and while the Ministry endeavours to keep the information up to date and correct, it makes no representation or warranty of any kind, express or implied, about the completeness, accuracy, reliability, suitability or availability with respect to the website or the information, products, services, or related graphics contained on the website for any purpose.

In no event will the Ministry of Finance and Planning be liable for any loss or damage including without limitation, indirect or consequential loss or damage, or any loss or damage whatsoever arising from loss of data or profits arising out of, or in connection with, the use of this website.

Through this website you may be able to link to other websites which are not under the control of the Ministry of Finance and Planning. The Ministry has no control over the nature, content and availability of those sites. The inclusion of any links does not necessarily imply a recommendation or endorse the views expressed within them and the information may not reflect the policy of this Ministry. You must therefore use your own judgement to decide whether the information or service on that website is suitable for your needs. If a website is not linked to ours, this does not mean or imply that it is unsatisfactory. Websites that we link to may have ‘Terms and conditions’ that are different from ours. Do not assume that our ‘Terms and conditions’ apply to other websites.

Every effort is made to keep the website up and running smoothly. However, the Ministry of Finance and Planning takes no responsibility for the website being temporarily unavailable due to technical issues beyond our control.

We may then use or disclose that statistical data to others for marketing and strategic development purposes, but no individuals will be identified in such statistical data.

We may collect web usage information to help us assess the effectiveness of marketing campaigns; develop and deliver services and information that better meet your needs; inform you of events, services and products which we believe to be relevant to you; and where you have consented to be contacted for such purposes.
