VIA Outlets has some arrangements with carefully selected companies, who may sell you products or services on Third Party Websites linked to the Website and bearing our branding or indicating an association with the Company, as in the case of gift cards or other similar promotions. When you link through to some of these Third Party Websites they may still be framed by the Website or have the Company’s branding, and appear in the frame of the Website. In such cases, please be aware that these products and services are sold by another company. While VIA Outlets selects such companies carefully, it is not responsible for the products and services, which they offer and sell. Therefore, you should check any terms and conditions of those Third Party Websites and of any products and services which they offer.
