What constitutes the ADI website?

ADI Compliance Consulting, Inc. (ADI) owns and manages this website and all of its pages. ADI reserves the right to make changes to this Site and to anything on any page of this Site, at any time, in its sole discretion. One or more of these pages may contain information from third parties or links to third-party websites. ADI does not own or control third-party content or websites and accepts no responsibility for such content or sites or for Users’ actions in reliance on such content or sites. Users of this Site use its contents at their own risk. ADI accepts no responsibility for any consequences, foreseeable or unforeseeable, that may affect Users who use third-party content or sites, even if such Users were also contemporaneous Users of ADI’s Site.

ADI owns or controls only three other sites. The first is persontopersonquality.com. Person to Person Quality is a division of ADI, with its own brand name. Both the Person to Person Quality division and the brand name are owned by ADI. The second site is open only to ADI clients who have been given login credentials. The third is a company page on LinkedIn®.

Any information contained on ADI’s Site is provided for informational purposes only and should not be interpreted as being an attempt to provide advice on which any particular User should rely in developing or executing business or compliance strategies or plans. Information rises to the level of advice from ADI only when all of the relevant circumstances, including all important facts describing a client’s situation, are known to and can be considered by a person capable of rendering such advice, who has been authorized by ADI to formulate and communicate such advice, and who actually communicates the conclusions and recommendations resulting from his or her consideration on behalf of ADI. None of the information or materials on this Site meet this definition of advice. ADI accepts no responsibility for the information or any reliance on the information contained in its Sites.
