Privacy Policy

October 2021

We would like to share with you how we collect certain data about you when you visit our website, contact us directly, engage with our social media posts or use our software. Whether you’re an existing or potential customer, a supplier or just an interested third party our primary aim through data collection is to provide you with the best possible service and information.  

What we may collect from you

How we collect and use data

Most of the personal information we process is provided to us directly by you for one of the following reasons:

Website search terms and browsing behaviour are collected via a cookie which is set on your first arrival to our website and the contents of any form you submit to us.

We may use your personal data to contact you with newsletters, marketing or promotional materials and other information that may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any, or all, of these communications from us by following the unsubscribe link or the instructions provided in any email we send.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the lawful bases we rely on for processing this information are: 

Your consent. You are able to remove your consent at any time. You can do this by contacting: privacy@avacadcam.com

Where we store your data 

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers. A copy of our CRM database (your personal & company data) is also hosted by an external (UK) contracted third party to improve our service levels and limit the impact of any potential data loss on customer service and support levels. You will never be contacted by this third party and they are obligated not to disclose or use it for any purpose other than storage.

AVA will retain your data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your data to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations (for example, if we are required to retain your data to comply with applicable laws), resolve disputes and enforce our legal agreements and policies.

Usage statistics are stored and analysed by a separate (US) processor and cannot be decoded to determine the individual user of the system without your direct intervention. AVA will retain Usage Data for internal analysis purposes. Usage data is generally retained for a shorter period of time, except when this data is used to strengthen the security or to improve the functionality of our Service, or we are legally obligated to retain this data for longer periods.

 If you cease to be an active/current ‘customer’ of AVA, we will, on request remove all of your personal data from our databases – in the absence of such a request we will retain it (subject to all of our normal guaranties with regard to security and confidentiality).
