While The Karl König Institute will endeavour to maintain the currency and accuracy of information published via its own official social media channels, it does not warrant the accuracy, completeness or usefulness of the information available on its social media channels – particularly considering that trends rapidly change, as can information and research material.

Users are advised to always take care and caution, and should themselves check the accuracy and currency of information posted on social media, as indeed any online source, before taking any action. A good and proper way would also be to speak to us directly for further clarifications.
