Reason for this policy
This policy is to ensure that we:
• Comply with data protection law and follow good practice
• Protect the rights of staff, customers and partners
• Are open about how data is stored and processed
• Protect ourselves from a data breach
We aim to follow these rules:
We use a third-party provider, MailChimp, to deliver our newsletters. We gather statistics around email opening and clicks using industry standard technologies to help us monitor and improve our e-newsletters.
You can unsubscribe to general mailings at any time of the day or night by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any of mailings processed through MailChimp.
You are entitled to view, amend, or delete the personal information that we hold. Email your request to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will respond quickly to resolve your issues.
We will not store explicit private data such as:
• Your private address (unless they are also your business address)
• Your age, date of birth, religion, marital status, and other personal data
• Your personal financial data
• Any activities or personal information found on social media
• Any information on young people
We will only keep the following private business data:
• Your Name
• Your business addresses and company name
• Your phone number – specifically your business phone number or phone numbers shared in a business context
• Your business email addresses
• Copies of emails and meeting notes shared in a business context
How we determine what data we can keep
Expressed Consent: is when an individual has opted-in or specifically requested to get our emails, some examples of this are:
• Anyone who goes through a double opt-in or confirmed opt-in process
• Someone who signs up to receive emails from our web page
• People who sign up using a form with the specific purpose of being added to a mailing list or to seek details about our products
• Details provided to one of our employees in the course of business interaction
• Details when you contact us, visit us or have made contact with us in other ways
Implied Consent: happens through a client or customer relationship. For example, we get implicit consent through but limited to the following:
• The exchange of business cards
• A verbal request
• A fishbowl collection at shows where no consent to email is asked
Where and how do we keep your details
We maintain email clients that stores the personal data mentioned above as contacts. This exists on our internal computers, servers and possible mobile phones and is never shared outside our organisation. Inside the company the data is protected behind a password which we change periodically. Only employees of our company have access to this data. It will not be copied or sold.
The contact data is also held on the MailChimp server as contact info to allow the sending of e-newsletters, this is protected by two step authentication and if you opt out of the e-newsletters your contact details will remain on the server to ensure we do not send you further e-newsletters, every e-newsletter has links to allow you to update your profile.
Where and how do we use your details
The only reason we keep your details is to serve you in a business context. We are a technical engineering company that provide customer service as part of the process of serving our business partners and customers. We do not provide any products or services which require personal information or details about you as an individual. We have no desire or intention to seek out such details and will delete details which do not comply with the policies set out in this document should they inadvertently be found in our systems.
The only time we may share the limited personal details we keep is if you have expressed interest that we do so. Again, under no circumstances will we share personal details beyond those you have chosen to share in a business or professional context.
The latest computer optical design and ray trace programs with optomechanical innovation are used to take full advantage of plastics materials. Complex optical surfaces combined with integral low cost assembly features.
SLA (Stereolithography), SLS (Selective Laser Sintering), Clear SLA, SLA to Vacuum Casting, Direct Machining and Tooling options.
Proven optical quality toolmakers are chosen and assisted by mould flow analysis to optimize the tool. Our specialist toolmakers are skilled in optical surface generation and polishing.
Our moulders are trained in the art of optical moulding. Mould flow process analysis and thorough F.M.E.A. is controlled by the Project Manager to ensure quality and quantity.
Our integrated approach to design enables optical components to become part of the total solution, including how they interface with the other non-optical components.
Plastics optical components can be coated in poly-siloxane and acrylate based resin blends to impart more robust properties.

Polymer Optics “Modular LED Optics”® design, based on a patented hexagonal format, allows maximum packing density and assembly flexibility for a wide range of applications.
We have also developed specialist optics for the latest range of high power UV LEDs emerging onto the market. These are made from high quality optical silicone to give excellent UV transmission with no long term degradation. See POL’s Silicone Optics page for further details.
We design and supply a comprehensive range of high quality, standard products for use with most world-leading LED devices
Hybrid Reflector design uses a central lens to collect and collimate the on-axis light from the LED.
Our expertise in efficient light control in Lightguide assemblies, enables a lower number of LEDs to achieve the maximum performance.
Free-Form optics are a relatively recent development which offer a step change in the way wide areas are illuminated by LEDs.
Our "engineering with light" approach allows us to provide product solutions for all applications across the whole spectrum from Visible to Infrared.
Developed tooling techniques enable us to produce precision optical surfaces with optical apertures of less than 1mm in diameter, required for miniature camera lens applications.
Our design approach, using light scattering pattern techniques, have enabled us to provide high efficiency display illuminations with very compact space envelopes, which use the minimum of light sources and electrical power consumption.
Our experience in designing and developing ophthalmic products, enables us to provide precision, impact resistant, eye protection optics for applications such as: fire protection, motor cycle visors, industrial PPE and military systems.
Polymer Optics have designed and manufactured a range of optics for street lighting, to meet both the ME and S class regimes of EN13201-2 in Europe and the requirements of IESNA RP-8-00 in the USA.
Emergency Lighting and Visual Alarm Devices are applications where light from an LED has to be efficiently distributed over a wide area. POL’s free form optics technology is particularly suited for applications which require wide area illumination.
POL can now provide advanced optical product design and rapid manufacture in the latest silicone resins to gain design and cost advantages in our customers’ applications.
Our patented prismatic colour mixing optic was introduced to enable good colour mixing, for narrow beam angle systems, using three discrete LED sources.
Brand named “GloWorm®”, the novel lightguide technology enables the light projected from a simple lightguide to be redirected and shaped
