Aston Workshop, the owner of the www.aston.co.uk website, has created this privacy statement in order to demonstrate our deep commitment to the privacy of our site visitors and customers. As a company, we strictly adhere to all industry guidelines and we continually review our policy and procedures to ensure the safety and protection of our visitor and customer information. Aston Workshop has fulfilled the requirements of the 1998 Data Protection Act.
There follows an explanation of our commitment to protecting the privacy of Internet Users.
Information Collection and Use
Aston Workshop is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell, share, or rent this information to others in ways different from those which are disclosed in this statement. Aston Workshop collects information from our users at several different points on our website:
We request information from the user on our feedback and mailing list forms. Here a visitor must provide contact information (such as their email address). This information is only used to contact the visitor if a contact is requested in the form.
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the users hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. For instance, by setting a cookie on our site, the user would not have to log in a password more than once, thereby saving time while on our site. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our site. The only drawback to this is that the user will be limited in some areas of our site. For example, the user will not be able to participate in any of our Sweepstakes, Contests or monthly Draws that take place. Cookies can also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our site.
We use IP addresses to analyse trends, administer the site, track site use, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. IP addresses are not linked to personally identifiable information.
This web site contains links to other sites. Please be aware that we at Aston Workshop are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every web site that collects personally identifiable information. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by Aston Workshop.
Newsletter and mailing lists
If a user wishes to subscribe to our newsletter or mailing lists, we ask for contact information such as name and email address.
Surveys & Contests
From time-to-time our site requests information from users via surveys or contests. Participation in these surveys or contests is completely voluntary and the user therefore has a choice whether or not to disclose this information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name and shipping address), and demographic information (such as country, postal or zip code). Contact information will be used to notify the winners and award prizes. Survey information will be used for purposes of monitoring or improving the use and satisfaction of this site.
If a user elects to use our referral service for informing a friend about our site, we ask them for the friend's name and email address. Aston Workshop will automatically send the friend a one-time email inviting them to visit the site. Aston Workshop stores this information for the sole purpose of sending this one-time email. The friend may contact Aston Workshop to request the removal of this information from our database.
This website takes every precaution to protect our users information. When users submit sensitive information via the website, the information is protected both online and off-line. All of our user information, not just the sensitive information, is restricted in our offices. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example a customer service representative) are granted access to personally identifiable information. Furthermore, ALL employees are kept up-to-date on our security and privacy practices.
