Important information about this site

The ASE Editorial Policy

Our primary intention is to provide a forum for the industry. A place where practitioners in the industry can exchange ideas and information. We believe that the Internet provides an egalitarian platform for the free exchange of ideas. Unlike print the net also enables this exchange to take place in a very interactive manner, which is not restricted by publishing deadlines.

By operating as a commercial venture we can, with the support of our advertisers, pay staff to maintain the website, thus ensuring that information is kept up to date and posted quickly. Our content divides into two main streams. The first editorial, and the second commercial.

The editorial content may be written by us, by our regular contributors, or by you, our readers. We expect this content to be opinionated, witty, informative, challenging and, hopefully, accurate. The editorial sections include Industry News, Product and Event Reviews and Eventualities.  We will endeavour to credit all contributors, including photographers. We may, mainly for space or legal reasons, edit submitted articles as necessary, but will keep this to a minimum. The commercial section is the Marketplace. This section is designed to allow companies to promote new products and services in an informative manner we charge a small fee to include articles in this section. Links to other sites. We will provide links to useful and relevant sites. We will also provide links from articles to advertisers listings in the directory. Links to commercial sites will be made at the discretion of the publisher.



When you subscribe to the ASE mailing list you will be asked for certain information – i.e. your name, email address, company name, locality, type of company and how you found us. This information is used by ASE to profile our readership for our own use so that we, and our advertisers, can better understand the demographics of our readers. ASE thanks you for this information and assures you that your individual details will not be disclosed to a third party. The ASE database is not for sale. The ASE database will only be used for communications from ASE.
