Policy") in order to demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy. In
particular, the Policy sets forth our information gathering and
dissemination practices with respect to this web site (" the Site "). The
Policy applies only to data collected on-line.
1. This Site collects personal information such as name, company,
address, phone numbers, fax numbers, and e-mail addresses ("Personally
Identifiable Information") from visitors who voluntarily submit a
feedback/inquiry form, send electronic mail to ASM, register for events,
subscribe to newsletters, submit resumes through the Site, or otherwise
voluntarily submit such information to ASM through or because of the Site.
Personally Identifiable Information collected through this Site is saved
in ASM's contact database where it may be combined with pre-existing
contact information in the database.
2. ASM does not collect Personally Identifiable Information about
visitors except when specifically and knowingly provided by such
3. Personally Identifiable Information may be used by ASM to contact
you regarding ASM's programs, products, and services.
4. Personally Identifiable Information may also be used by ASM to send
you surveys regarding current services or potential new services that may
be offered, as well as to send you newsletters, event notices and
announcements, and promotional materials regarding ASM's programs,
products, and services. If you no longer wish to receive such messages
from ASM, please send an e-mail to email@example.com and type "Remove"
or send a letter to the same effect to Web Site Administrator, ASM, Cameo
House, 11 Bear Street, London WC2H 7AS UK. Along these lines, please note
that ASM has a company policy in place to ensure compliance with the
recently-enacted CAN-SPAM Act.
5. ASM takes commercially appropriate measures to safeguard the
Personally Identifiable Information that you share with us. As such, we
use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your
Personally Identifiable Information from unauthorized access, use, or
disclosure. For example, we store the Personal Identifiable Information
you provide on computer systems with limited access, which are located in
controlled facilities. When we transmit highly confidential information
(such as a credit card number) over the Internet, we protect it through
the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
6. ASM obtains second-level domain information and, in some instances,
IP addresses, regarding visitors to the Site ("Non-Personally Identifiable
Information"), but does not collect or maintain Personally Identifiable
Information concerning such visitors unless they also specifically and
knowingly provide such information. See paragraph 1 above. The Site uses
cookies to track Site traffic only. Cookies do not track Personally
7. ASM occasionally enlists vendors to provide services on our behalf,
such as handling the processing and delivery of mailings, providing
customer support, processing transactions, or performing statistical
analysis of our services. We will only provide those vendors with the
Personally Identifiable Information that they need to deliver the service.
They are required to maintain the confidentiality of your information and
are prohibited from using that information for any other purpose.
8. ASM may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external
business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to
you. In those cases, however, your Personally Identifiable information
(e-mail, name, address, telephone number, etc.) is not transferred to the
9. In certain instances (e.g., when ASM co-presents or co-sponsors an
event with a third party), ASM may "rent" your Personally Identifiable
Information to a particular third party, usually on a one-time basis. ASM
only does so, however, through the intermediary of a vendor as referenced
in paragraph 8 above. Such a vendor (who is, as noted in paragraph 8
above, required to maintain the confidentiality of your information)
ensures that the third party in question never receives direct access to
your Personally Identifiable Information.
10. In the event that ASM is involved in an acquisition event with
another company (i.e., merger, sale of assets, etc.), such Personally
Identifiable Information collected under this Policy will potentially be
part of the assets transferred. In that instance, you will be notified via
a notice on our Site for 30 days prior to a change of ownership or control
of such Personally Identifiable Information, with such notice also
indicating whether your Personally Identifiable Information will be used
in manner different from that stated at the time of collection. After
receipt of such notice, you may (as you can at any time) remove such
Personally Identifiable Information pursuant to paragraph 4 above.
11. ASM may access and/or disclose your Personally Identifiable
Information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that
such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or
comply with legal process served on ASM or the Site; (b) protect and
defend the rights or property of ASM, including this Site; or (c) act in
urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ASM
services or members of the public.
12. Except as noted above, ASM will not otherwise disclose your
Personally Identifiable Information to third parties without your
13. ASM reserves the right to use your IP address, resolution
settings, browser information, platform type, and originating URLs to help
diagnose problems with our server, measure usage, and administer the Site.
14. This Site contains links to other web sites. ASM is not
responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such sites.
15. ASM reserves the right to modify this Policy without prior notice.
Accordingly, please refer to the Policy on a regular basis.
