Visitors from the European Economic Area
On May 25, 2018 the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) goes into effect in the European Economic Area (EEA). The GDPR extends certain rights to natural persons in the EEA involving the privacy of their personal information.
We are the data controller for any personal information provided to us from persons in the EEA. We do not have a representative in the EEA. As previously noted, we may transfer your personal data to another country or international organization as needed (e.g., registration for trade shows in Canada or Mexico).
We will retain any personal information that you provide us from the date you provided or the date personal information was last updated, unless you request that information be deleted at an earlier date, for only as long as needed for FABTECH’s business purposes and to meet FABTECH’s legal obligations.
The GDPR grants EEA residents with the right to request that we update, correct, or complete his or her personal information, and to delete or erase any of that personal information from our records. It grants EEA residents with the right to object to processing of personal information in certain instances, such as for direct marketing purposes. The GDPR also grants EEA residents with the right to restrict the processing of personal information when you believe the information in our possession is inaccurate, that our processing is unlawful, that we no longer need the information for purposes of the processing, or where you have objected to that processing. You may withdraw your consent at any time to our possession or processing of your personal information. EEA residents also have a right to request access to their personal information, and to request certain information about its processing. The GDPR also grants EEA residents with the right to obtain a copy of any personal information that is processed by automated means which you voluntarily provided to us in a commonly used, structured, machine-readable format, or to have that information transferred to another controller when it is technically feasible. An EEA resident can exercise any of these rights by an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority of an EEA member state.
We will review any requests we receive from EEA residents and will endeavor to respond in a timely manner. For security reasons, we may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity before taking action on any request, and to ensure your right of access and the exercise any of GDPR right does not adversely affect the rights of others.
We reserve the right to refuse to act on a request, or to charge a reasonable administrative fee when a request is either manifestly unfounded or excessive because of its repetitive character, and to charge a reasonable administrative fee to requests for further or additional copies
