Who we are
Our website address is: http://www.ainsty-castings.co.uk.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
We use forms both in the checkout process, and for gathering feedback, and enquiries. The data gathered from these forms is used in the provision of products or the process of answering the questions asked via those forms.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Ainsty Castings analyse our website logs to constantly improve the value of the materials available on website. Our website logs are not personally identifiable, and we make no attempt to link them with the individuals who actually browse the site. We may, however, occasionally make contact with webmasters who make links to our sites. We also use third party analytics tools such as Jetpack and Google analytics, where the data is also anonymised and we make no attempts at the identification of individuals browsing the site.
We record sales data, and use that data to improve our offering to our customers, including specific marketing emails where a purchasing trend has been identified.
Who we share your data with
Ainsty Castings does not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease any personal information collected at our site, including membership forms or email lists.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognise and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service, otherwise Ainsty Castings does not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease any personal information collected at our site, including membership forms or email lists. There may be times when our third party providers, such as our website designers, require access to the data on this site, but that is limited to times and areas of specific need only.
Your contact information
Ainsty Castings does not maintain e-mail lists other than those of our customers, or individuals that wish to receive information about our products, shows and offers.. We do not sell, rent, loan, trade, or lease addresses to anyone. Please contact us to have any inaccurate information corrected.
How we protect your data
Your data is held on our server, and communications with this site are protected with full end to end encryption.
What data breach procedures we have in place
In the event of a breach, all parties will be informed by email, as will relevant authorities. At that point we will remove all personal data from the servers until a solutions is found.
