Astral Aspects is concerned for the privacy of visitors to its web site. The following statement generally describes the types of information collected via the site and the uses made of it.
Cookies form a ‘trail’ of pages you’ve visited online, and won't damage your computer or collect personal information from it. Cookies are used to track a shopper's movements and purchases whilst they are shopping so that the shopping basket has a way of telling what items they require. The shopping basket will not function if you set your browser to reject cookies. Within the secure ordering form, a user can opt to have the personal details to be remembered to speed up future purchasing. This involves the placement of a further cookie on the users machine. To update these details during any further purchases the user must simply change the information as appropriate and check the update details box. The cookie previously placed on their machine will then be updated. We don't include any personal information in the cookies.
Personally Identifiable Information
Astral Aspects collects personally identifiable information such as name, address, e-mail address, date, place and time of birth or any other information only when it is voluntarily submitted to us via this site, our on-line shopping site, or via post, fax or e-mail. We may use this information to improve the content of our web site, notify you of new products and for Astral Aspects' own internal purposes. We do not sell or rent personally identifiable information to any third party for any purpose.
Under the Data Protection Act 1998 you are entitled to obtain from Astral Aspects (the Data Controller for the purposes of the Data Protection Act) a printout of the data held concerning you and to have any inaccuracies in the data rectified.
If you do not want us to contact you about new products or services supplied or promoted by Astral Aspects, please email us. Or write to Astral Aspects, 9 Elbourn Way, Bassingbourn, Cambridgeshire, UK SG8 5UJ.
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Astral Aspects also collects aggregate or non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to track data such as the total number of visitors to our web site, the number of visitors visiting each page, the domain names of our visitors' Internet Service Providers (ISPs), and the browsers our visitors use. We use this information, which remains in aggregate form, to understand how our visitors use our web site so that we may improve upon it. NO PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION IS COLLECTED IN THIS PROCESS.
An IP address is a number that's automatically assigned to your computer. Web servers (the computer that 'delivers' Web pages to your computer), must identify your computer by its IP address. Astral Aspects does not link IP addresses to anything personally identifiable. This means the only information retained by our servers during a user's session is the browser type, the domain they are accessing and the access time. The user remains anonymous to us. Furthermore, IP addresses are used as a means of creating statistics reports (for example, the number of users visiting this site each month). NO PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION IS COLLECTED IN THIS PROCESS.
