Shortened URLs – URL shortening is a technique used on the web to shorten URLs (Uniform Resource Locators) to something substantially shorter.

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 Streamline Corporate cannot be held liable for any damages or implications caused by visiting any external links mentioned.
