Legal basis for processing personal data (EEA visitors only)
If you are a customer or visitor from the European Economic Area, our legal basis for collecting and using the personal data described above will depend on the personal data concerned and the specific context in which we collect it. However, we will normally collect personal data from you only (i) where we need the personal data to perform a contract with you, (ii) where the processing is in our legitimate interests and not overridden by your rights, or (iii) where we have your consent to do so. In some cases, we may also have a legal obligation to collect personal data from you or may otherwise need personal data to protect your vital interests or those of another person.

If we ask you to provide personal data to comply with a legal requirement or to perform a contact with you, we will make this clear at the relevant time and advise you whether the provision of your personal data is mandatory or not (as well as of the possible consequences if you do not provide your personal data). 
If we collect and use your personal data in reliance on our legitimate interests (or those of any third party), this interest will normally be to operate our platform and communicating with you as necessary to provide our services to you and for our legitimate commercial interest, for instance, when responding to your queries, improving our platform, undertaking marketing, or for the purposes of detecting or preventing illegal activities. We may have other legitimate interests and if appropriate we will make clear to you at the relevant time what those legitimate interests are.

Your personal data may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country and, in some cases, may not be as protective.
Specifically, our Website servers are located in the United States, and our group companies and third-party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal data we may process it in any of these countries.
However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your personal data will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice. We may also need to transfer personal data to other third parties.
For example:
• when requested by any competent law enforcement body, regulatory or government agency, court or other third party (i) as a matter of applicable law or regulation, (ii) to meet national security requirements, (iii) to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights, or (iv) to protect your vital interests or those of any other person;
• to an actual or potential buyer (and its agents and advisers) in connection with any actual or proposed purchase, merger or acquisition of any part of our business, provided that we inform the buyer it must use your personal data only for the purposes disclosed in this Privacy Notice;
• to any other person with your consent to the disclosure.

If Laitram Machinery engages third parties to which personal data covered by this Privacy Shield Policy will be transferred, Laitram Machinery will be responsible for obtaining appropriate assurances that such third parties have an obligation to conduct themselves in accordance with the applicable provisions of Privacy Shield Policy and of the Privacy Shield framework. Laitram Machinery complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the E.U. and Switzerland, including the onward transfer liability provisions.

Laitram Machinery will take reasonable measures to provide personal data with reasonable protection from accidental loss or destruction, improper use, alteration, or disclosure.

Laitram Machinery will use personal data only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently authorized by the individual. Laitram Machinery will take reasonable steps to ensure that personal data is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. We retain personal data we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal, tax or accounting requirements). 

Upon request, Laitram Machinery will grant an individual reasonable access to personal data that it holds regarding that individual, as required by law. If an individual becomes aware that data we maintain about him or her is inaccurate, or if an individual would like to update or review his or her personal data, the individual may contact us using contact data listed in section vii below. 
You may also update your personal data by contacting your customer service representative.
