Dutch term or phrase: buiten onze controle
Please, help me translate this sentence. I cannot find the right order.

"Deze inlichten worden echter buiten onze verantwoordelijk verstrekt, daar de toepassing ervan in de praktijk buiten onze controle is".

For your info and further context, the first part of the paragraph reads,

"According to the relevant information at our disposal, provided by our suppliers, our goods are to the best of our knowledge GMO-free."
The sentence above immediatly follows.

Thanks!

Explanation:
"We cannot, however, accept responsibility for this information, since its application is beyond our control."

There is probably a typing mistake: the final "heid" has been left off "verantwoordelijk".

I also think "toepassing/application" is a bad choice or words in the original and would suggest replacing it with "accuracy".
