On the PIAS website we try to include links to relevant organisations that you may find useful. With numerous websites around the world though we do need guidelines to help ensure we are fair and consistent.
We have two types of links:
Internal links are links to another part of the PIAS website. These might be referred to as related pages.
External links are links to sites that we do not own, or have any control over, but that we think you might find useful.
As a general rule we try to link to Government websites, partners or not-for-profit/non-commercial websites.
We tend not to link to commercial websites. The reason for not linking to commercial websites is simply that we are trying to be fair to everyone. If we add a link for one commercial website in a specific sector then we need to include all relevant links and that is not the core purpose of the PIAS website. We do accept though that, despite trying to enforce this rule, there may be occasions where we do include commercial website links but this is not normal or regular.
We do not normally link to sites which are not free to access.
We do not link to external sites in return for cash, services or any other consideration in kind.
We are not responsible for the content, reliability or availability of external web sites and do not necessarily endorse the views expressed within them. Listing should not be taken as an endorsement of any kind.
Links may be made to our website from personal and organisational websites. We request that you link to our site rather than downloading portions of it to another web server, so that viewers will see the most up-to-date information.
If you notice a link that you feel should not be on the PIAS website please email email@example.com. Likewise, if you would like to request a link from our website please contact us but we will apply the above criteria.

Any personal details given online for the provision of a particular service, will be stored on a secure server. This data will be held and processed under the terms of the Data Protection Act 1998.
Such information may be shared across PIAS for the purpose of providing and improving services to you. This will aid our ability to take information once and minimise the length of time each future contact will take.
We will not share information with any third parties unless required to do so by law – this might include the Police if requested to aid the prevention and detection of crime.
The information we gather will also enable us to better understand your needs and improve the services that PIAS provides.
The use of your personal information is covered by Plymouth City councils registration under the Data Protection Act 1998. Under this legislation you can request a copy of the information we hold about you. If any information we hold about you is incorrect please let us know.
PIAS is committed to upholding the principles of the Data Protection Act, and will not process your information in a way incompatible with these principles.
This privacy statement covers the PIAS website.
A cookie is a small piece of text stored on your computer, phone or whatever you use to access the Internet. Cookies have many uses, but fundamentally they are used to store information about you on your computer. We encourage you to accept the cookies our website uses as they help us to improve the user experience for you and many others.
Text and accessibility. If you change the text size or use some of our website accessibility tools then a cookie will store these preferences so that the website ‘remembers’ your settings. The cookie should expire after 365 days and is called ‘pccTextSize’.
(These are cookies set by other web sites whose services we use.)
The data we collect helps us identify those services that matter to you by enabling us to understand:
Google have developed a browser add-on which excludes Google Analytics recording your activities on any websites using Google Analytics. It’s totally free and can be installed on most browsers.
These cookies are usually called ‘__utma’, ‘__utmb’, ‘__utmc’ or ‘__utmz’ and are used on the main PIAS website.
In addition to Google Analytics, Plymouth Online Directory at www.plymouthonlinedirectory.com uses a cookie called ‘JSESSIONID’ that expires when you close your browser.
If you have any questions regarding cookies please email firstname.lastname@example.org
PIAS may use social media outlets, which we invite the public to follow us on.
Most online communities have their own rules and guidelines, which we will always follow. We reserve the right to remove any contributions that break the rules or guidelines of the relevant community, or any of the following:
Please take care not to make defamatory statements. In law this means a statement that lowers the reputation of a person or organisation in the eyes of a reasonable person. By publishing such a statement we can both get into serious trouble. We will therefore take down any statement that could be deemed to be defamatory.
PIAS may choose to ‘follow’, ‘like’ or otherwise establish connections with other organisations and individuals using social media. This is so that PIAS can maintain contact with what other social media users are saying and, where appropriate, share their content. Sometimes we also need to establish a connection so that we can engage with users, e.g. via direct messages or posting. This is an emerging area of communications and as such PIAS will review and amend its practice continuously.
PIAS does not implicitly or explicitly endorse any individual or organisation merely by virtue of creating a social media connection; regardless of the terms used by social media providers such as ‘follow’ or ‘like’. Indeed, PIAS will maintain social media connections with organisations that are critical of it and/or have opposing views. Nor does PIAS hold any responsibility for the content of such profiles.
Once connected, PIAS will not remove a profile from its network unless there is some over-riding reason to do so, e.g. because it poses a significant and material risk to PIAS’s reputation and credibility.
It is not possible to be prescriptive on what would pose such a threat and each case will need to be consider on its own merits.
Our responses to replies, comments and direct messages depend on the individual service. Even if we do not reply, we are listening and will act on or pass on your comments as appropriate. You may also like to contact the service directly.
Please note that unless stated otherwise the views/comments given on any of our social media sites may not necessarily reflect the views of PIAS.
Our social media platforms are not intended to be used by the media or politicians to contact us.
You are welcome to download any of the material for your own personal use on these terms and conditions:
