To ensure personal data is not violated or abused, the EU has revised GDP Regulations to be operative from 25 May 2018. Over the past 30 years, Hi-Tech Machinery has accumulated many contacts and, as equipment, even from those very early days, remains in service, we have a legitimate and necessary interest in retaining contact details provided either verbally, in hard copy or various electronic methods. Use of the data recorded is limited to contacting customers, suppliers, end users and OE manufacturers incorporating our equipment, initially in response to an original enquiry, then during the purchasing, installation and commissioning process and continuing through the service life of the equipment for problem solving, operational advice and provision of spare parts. We also need to retain contact details to advise you in the event a technical/safety update occurs and we need to discuss how the matter may affect your use, or performance, of the equipment supplied. If appropriate, we may also occasionally advise you when new equipment is introduced.
