KDWC has been gathering links to what are considered useful woodworking resources around the world,  for many years now,  and over time,  some will go by the wayside or become renamed.  The important point is, that the links are secure.  But once a link is referred, to, there is no guarantee of there being secure information further linked from them, to other content on the internet.  


Where resources have been found to be non-secure  (http) websites,  such links have been removed,  but out of courtesy,  left with embedded spaces for readers to decide for themselves, the risk of putting a search to the internet.     


Latest Club Membership handbook reminds readers that:   

"The Club cannot offer a guarantee of website links offered or the privacy policy of 3rd parties members may personally engage."

On the topic of security and care when using the internet,  here is some further guides/suggestions on practising safe computer usage.

It is offered as a reminder,  and is in no way an exhaustive list of risks,  but purely a conversation starting point about using the internet.
