In addition to the above, any data you share with us through an ordering procedure or contact form will be used by us solely in order to complete and process your purchase order or reply to your request.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data
Data processing takes place in compliance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter: “GDPR”) and on the basis of the following legal principles:
● In cases where we obtain your consent to processing transactions in respect of your personal data, data processing is based on GDPR article 6 (1a).
● Any data that you share with us in the context of purchase orders and which are required for the fulfilment and/or handling of those orders will be processed by us in compliance with GDPR article 6 (1b).
● If data processing is necessary so that we can meet specific legal obligations, then such data processing is based on GDPR article 6 (1c).

Retention period, data erasure and blocking of data
On completion of the purchase order, your data will not be used for any other purpose and erased after the retention periods established under tax and commercial law, unless you have expressly consented to the further use of your data.
Moreover, your data will always be deleted as soon as your consent ceases to be available or as soon as they are no longer required for the purpose of data processing. If your data are no longer needed for this purpose and/or your consent is no longer available, thus removing the legal basis, but if your data nevertheless need to be stored further, due to existing statutory, official or contractual obligations (e.g. warranty commitments or financial accounting), data processing will be restricted through the marking and blocking of those data.

Those data will be used exclusively for the purpose of technical communication and to ensure technical operation; once the use of our website has come to an end, they will be erased subject to the proviso of possible statutory retention duties. The legal bases are our fulfilment of statutory obligations concerning data security, our legitimate interest in the technical functioning of our website, the removal of malfunctions and the warranting of security.

- Managing cookies
Some websites – including ours – cannot, however, be used properly without cookies, as they need certain files for their routines, such as purchase orders. To buy products, you therefore need to have activated cookies. If you do not wish to activate cookies, you can still search through the website, but you will not be able to send off contact forms or purchase products. To manage your cookies, use the guides below for the four most common internet browsers:

Note the following list of the most important cookies which we use, together with their purpose:
- Third-party CookiesCookies are also used for the purpose of web analysis services and plugins (e.g. to share content on social media). Further details about such cookies can be found below, under the services we use for our website.
Web analysis using Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereinafter: “Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files which are saved to your computer and allow us to analyse the use of the website. The information that is created by cookies on your use of our website is usually sent to a Google server in the United States, where it is then stored.
However, if you have activated IP anonymisation for this website, your IP address will not be sent without first being truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the United States and then truncated there. Acting at the website operator’s request, Google uses this information to analyse your use of the website, to set up reports on website activities for us as site operators and to provide us with other services connected with website and internet use. The IP address which Google Analytics sends via your browser will not be linked by Google with any other data it may have. You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies through suitable settings in your browser software; please note, however, that this may prevent you from using all the functions of this website to their full potential.
Furthermore, if you wish to prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and relating to your usage of the website (incl. your IP address) by Google and if you wish to opt out of such data being processed by Google, you can download and install a browser plugin from the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Further details are available at https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html and at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy.
To allow the anonymised collection of IP addresses, Google Analytics has been extended to include the code “gat._anonymizeIp();”, so that IP addresses only undergo further processing in truncated form and data cannot be related to specific persons.
Data collected via the web analysis service Google Analytics are also used by ATS Machinery Limited for the optimisation and improvement of this website.
The legal bases are your consent and/or our legitimate interest in analysing the use of our website and the resulting improvements to our range of services.

We implement the usual recognised technical and organisational measures to secure our website and other systems against loss, destruction, access, modification and distribution of your data by unauthorized persons, yet we do so without being able to guarantee total protection.
