For all these reasons Users are recommended to consult the General Conditions and Privacy Policies of the third party web sites they access through links on this Web site. Avis reserves the right to remove links to any web sites if it has reliable knowledge that the activities pursued on said web sites or their contents are illegal or infringe third party rights, or should it be required to do so pursuant to a court decision or government order.
