External Links and Plugins

ASI is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of any non-ASI websites to which we provide external links and/or plugins (generally for social media) from our websites. When you click on this, your personal data will be shared with the relevant external site. Once you leave this website, the processing of your personal data is no longer regulated by us nor governed by this Policy. Where you click on a social media plugin (indicated by the relevant symbol), personal data is shared with that entity. It is generally your IP address, information about the directing site, and, where you remain automatically logged-in on your device to the social media site, they will collect information about your profile. Clicking on external links and plugins is entirely voluntary; therefore, if you do not wish for your personal data to be processed in this way, you do not have to click on these links.
