Links to external sites
On the Ask Poli Team website(s) 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 Ask Poli Team 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 link to Government websites, partners or not-for-profit/non-commercial websites. We will only link to commercial websites in exceptional circumstances.
- 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.
Please note that any content posted on this website is the exclusive responsibility of the individual who posted it. You acknowledge that the Ask Poli Team is not responsible for, does not control, does not endorse nor does it verify the content posted to this website.

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 defamatory.
We must be politically neutral in our communications. Therefore, please do not use any of our pages to promote party political messages or other content. We will remove any comments that, in its view, may compromise its obligation to maintain political neutrality.
Our approach to connections on social media
We may choose to 'follow', 'like' or otherwise establish connections with other organisations and individuals using social media. This is so that we 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.
We do 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'. This also applies if we post an article that mentions a specific organisation(s). Our intention is to publish information on social media that might be useful for people living or working in Plymouth. You should make your own decisions regarding an event or organisation mentioned.
Contacting us via social media
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. Please note that unless stated otherwise the views/comments given on any of our social media sites may not necessarily reflect the views of the Ask Poli Team, Plymouth City Council or our partners.
