8. CONDITIONAL SERVICES AMENDMENT TO THE STATE OF UTAH DISCLAIMER STATEMENT ON UTAH.GOV

Certain services and features on the Utah.gov Internet sites are labeled as "conditional services." This signifies that the service or feature may be a pilot project or makes use of publicly available external Web services offered by governmental or commercial entities. These external resources are used to provide specific services to State of Utah Web users that the State is unable to offer/host/configure locally due to resource limitations. Some conditional services may require specific browser configurations (e.g., JavaScript-support, cookies, etc.) and are provided "as is" without support from the State. Conditional services offered on the Utah.gov Internet site may be removed at any time without notice if the external service is determined to not meet the needs of Utah.gov. Use of a commercial Web service does not serve as an endorsement by the State of Utah, nor is the State responsible for any data inaccuracies or omissions provided by external services.
