  • Where you have provided explicit consent, we may also use the information you send to us via the website and/or services, to communicate with you via email and, possibly, other means, regarding products, services, offers, promotions and events we think may be of interest to you or to send you our newsletter. You will always be able to opt-out of such communications at any time using a one-click UNSUBSCRIBE option within every marketing email.
We do not rent or sell your personal data to anyone.
  • We may share and disclose information (including Personal Data) about our site visitors or customers in the following limited circumstances:
  • Vendors, consultants and other service providers: We may share your information with third party vendors, consultants and other service providers who we employ to perform tasks on our behalf. These companies include (for example) our payment processing providers, website analytics companies (e.g., Google Analytics), email platform (e.g. Microsoft Exchange), email service providers (e.g., MailChimp) and others. If you are seeking contact with a distributor in your local area, your request and contact information will be passed onto your local distributor. Appropriate contracts are in place to ensure data is only disclosed to these 3rd parties in compliance with current data protection law.
  • Unless we tell you differently and you consent, our 3rd parties do not have any right to use the personal data we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
Protection of Ash Technologies and Others:
  • We reserve the right to access, read, preserve, and disclose any information as necessary to comply with law or court order; enforce or apply our agreements with you and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Ash Technologies, our employees, our customers, or others.
  • Disclosures for National Security or Law Enforcement: Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose your personal data in response to valid requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
We use appropriate technical, organisational and administrative security measures to protect any information we hold in our records from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction. For example, on our website:
  • We use regular Malware Scanning on our site to confirm it is safe to use.
  • We use a range of security tools to monitor activity on the site and identify unusual activity.
  • Your personal information is only accessible to a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential.
  • In addition, all information you supply through the website is encrypted via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology between your browser and the site.
In terms of local devices, Ash Technologies has implemented a range of security measures to protect the information we hold in our records. For example:
  • All devices (including backup devices) use disk encryption so data is secure at rest.
  • Devices automatically lock after a short period of inactivity to reduce the risk of unauthorised access.
  • Devices are ‘patched’ (updated with the latest security updates) on a regular basis.
The 3rd party service providers who we employ to perform certain tasks also commit to implementing appropriate security measures to protect the data that we disclose to them. Unfortunately, no company or service can guarantee complete security. Unauthorized entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time.

  • Right to access
  • You may request a copy of all personal data held by Ash Technologies about you.
Right to rectify
  • You have the right to ask Ash Technologies to correct any inaccuracies in the personal data held about you.
Right to erasure
  • You have the right to ask that we erase any personal data we are processing about you. Please note that we may still be allowed to retain and use your information. For example, as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, accounting purposes, resolve disputes, enforce our agreements, and defend or establish a legal claim.
Right to restrict
  • In certain circumstances, you have the right to request that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
Right to object
  • In certain circumstances, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data.

To make this site work properly, we sometimes place small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.

How do we use cookies?

A number of our pages use cookies to remember:

  • Your display preferences, such as contrast colour settings or font size
  • If you have agreed (or not) to our use of cookies on this site
  • Also, some videos embedded in our pages use a cookie to anonymously gather statistics on how you got there and what videos you visited.

The cookie-related information is not used to identify you personally and the pattern data is fully under our control. These cookies are not used for any purpose other than those described here.

  • Any changes to this Privacy Policy & Cookie Policy will be posted on this website so you are always aware of the personal data we collect, use, store, disclose and retain.
  • If at any time we decide to use your personal data in a manner significantly different from that stated in this Privacy Policy or otherwise stated to you at the time it was collected, we will notify you by email (if you have given your e-mail details to us and consented to be contacted).
