    [I know meanings of all the words in the highlighted sentence] but I couldn't understand the meaning of the sentence.

    So, could anyone rephrase the highlighted sentence so that I can understand it?

    Thank you.

    I have almost got it.

    Except the word `authorisation'.

    Could you tell me, what they mean `authorisation' here?

    "Authorisation" = Someone tells you that you are permitted to do something, usually in writing as it is a legal matter.

    Authorize: (v.)
    "If someone in a position of authority authorizes something, they give their official permission for it to happen."

    In this context it basically means that Cambridge University doesn't give any authorizations about the websites they are providing links to.
