Privacy Policy

AAS (“AAS“) operates and may operate other websites. It is AAS’s policy to respect your privacy regarding any information we may collect while operating our websites.

Website Visitors

Like most website operators, AAS collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. AAS’s purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how AAS’s visitors use its website. From time to time, AAS may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of its website.

AAS also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on blogs/sites. AAS only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that commenter IP addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog/site where the comment was left.

Aggregated Statistics

AAS may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to its websites. AAS may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, AAS does not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.

Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information

AAS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only to those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on AAS’s behalf or to provide services available at AAS’s websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using AAS’s websites, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. AAS will not rent or sell potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, AAS discloses potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when AAS believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of AAS, third parties or the public at large. If you are a registered user of an AAS website and have supplied your email address, AAS may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with AAS and our products. If you send us a request (for example via email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. AAS takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of potentially personally-identifying and personally-identifying information.


A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. AAS uses cookies to help AAS identify and track visitors, their usage of AAS website, and their website access preferences. AAS visitors who do not wish to have cookies placed on their computers should set their browsers to refuse cookies before using AAS’s websites, with the drawback that certain features of AAS’s websites may not function properly without the aid of cookies.


Integration with Google Drive and YouTube is present when interacting with the repertoire. User can upload a publication to Google Drive and save videos to their “Watch Later” YouTube Playlists. Users will receive an authorization prompt outlining the permissions required to upload and add files.

Privacy Policy Changes

Although most changes are likely to be minor, AAS may change its Privacy Policy from time to time, and in AAS’s sole discretion. AAS encourages visitors to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy. If you have a account, you might also receive an alert informing you of these changes.
