Wherever the organisation keeps its policies and disclaimers we strongly recommend that you add (or update, if necessary) a 'take down' policy (what you will do if someone contacts you with a concern about a possible IPR/copyright or consent infringement) stating:
Of course you may not be able to 'take down' every copy which has been made of the resources, so you should seek to inform others that resources have been 'taken down', and so this forms part of 'reasonable and fair' and 'due diligence'.
If you publicise and follow a take-down policy and the organisation dramatically reduces its potential liability from copyright and consent infringement. If your institution is dragging it's heels then you can still have a local one - be sure to state what it does and doesn't cover.
