External links and third parties

External links are clickable text, banner or image links to other websites, similar to the GOV.UK website (www.gov.uk) or Lincolnshire County Council website (www.lincolnshire.gov.uk).

Although we only look to include quality, safe and relevant external links on this website, users are advised to adopt a policy of caution before clicking any external web links mentioned throughout this website.

Shortened URLs

URL shortening is a technique used on the web to shorten URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) to something substantially shorter. This technique is especially used in social media and may look similar to this; www.sholland.gov.uk/rubbish or bit.ly/3qiiVaQ. Users should take caution before clicking on shortened URL links and verify their authenticity before proceeding.

We cannot guarantee or verify the contents of any externally linked website despite our best efforts. Users should therefore note they click on external links at their own risk and we cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.
