"No it isn't. It's like giving your keys to a cleaning company to clean your premises."

Except that you have a contract with a cleaning company and liability statements and both of you have liabilty insurance cover.

You seldom, if ever have such contracts with 3rd party script providers and there's almost always explicit disclaimers of liability associated with them (ie, "you're on your own") - I do wonder what insurers will make of this when someone decides to get legal on the company whose website served up the links (My suspicion is "your insurance cover is void, we won't be covering your legal fees")
