The data protection law will change on 25 May 2018. On that day, the General Data Protection Regulation of 27 April 2016 (hereinafter referred to as "GDPR") will come into force. That is why we are providing our Clients and Leads with this notice that will inform you about the ways in which we process your personal data.
Transfer Multisort Elektronik Ltd. Coleshill House Suite 1C, 1 Station Road Coleshill, Birmingham, B46 1HT, United Kingdom and Transfer Multisort Elektronik sp. z o.o., ul. Ustronna 41, 93-350 Łódź (hereinafter referred to as "TME") is the Data Controller of your personal data, therefore it determines the methods and goals of processing your personal data. Providing the personal data is voluntary, however it is also necessary for us to conclude contracts and perform services.
Obtaining information on processing of personal data
You can contact the Data Protection Officer on matters concerning the protection of your personal data via email at email@example.com or by sending a letter to our headquarters.
Data collection and the purpose of its processing
We process your personal data because it is necessary to perform a contract with you i.e. provide a service (compliant with Article 6 (1) (b) of GDPR) including:
In addition, we are required by law to process your personal data for tax and accounting purposes.
Furthermore, we may process your personal data for marketing purposes i.e. promoting our products and services. If we do this without using electronic means of communication, the legal basis for those activities is Article 6 (1) (f) of GDPR where conducting marketing activities is a legitimate interest of the Data Controller. However, if we use electronic means of communication for this purpose i.e. e-mail or phone, then due to other applicable laws we only process personal data with your consent (compliant with Article 6 (1) (a) of GDPR).
Your personal data may be transferred to other parties that will process your personal data on their own behalf, including but not limited to:
Retention periods of your personal data
We will retain your personal data for the duration of a contract (performance of services) and after its dissolution:
Rights related to data processing
You have the right to access, correct and transfer your data, limit its processing, object to its processing, or withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing that was already performed on the basis of consent prior to its withdrawal (if the processing is consent-based).
Moreover, should you decide that our processing breaches the provisions of GDPR, you have the right to submit a complaint to a data protection authority.
Automated data processing (profiling)
Your personal data will be processed in an automated way (including profiling), however this will not cause any legal or other serious repercussions for you.
Profiling of personal data performed by TME means we process your data (including in an automated manner) and use it to assess some information, in particular to analyse or forecast personal preferences and interests.
To those who do not deal with industry on a daily basis it may seem like cables are only fixed, and the greatest hazard for them are conditions in the facility. However, it is true only to a certain extent, as many sites utilize power chains, i.e. devices that move cables along the designated track. This offers a new approach to the risks to which cables are subjected and the necessary properties and characteristics of cables designed for this purpose.
Cables used for static systems in industrial conditions must be effectively protected against all kinds of agents including in particular extreme temperatures, humidity, oils and chemicals, UV radiation or electromagnetic interference. In specific cases, where cables are installed close to machinery or workplaces of manual workers, they must also have adequate mechanical resistance in order to prevent cuts or abrasions. It happens, however, that cables do not rest still in the ducts or wiring ducts, but they are constantly moving inside power chains. This calls for additional criteria to be considered when selecting optimum cabling.
Cables installed in power chains often have all the characteristics of fixed cable installations, but they also are of enhanced durability and flexibility. The introduction of a moving element requires that special attention be paid to properties such as the material of outer insulation and the minimal bending radius. Movement causes the cables to wear out much faster, and inappropriate selection may lead to abrasion, breakage or mechanical damage of the insulated conductors, which may result in production downtime, which generates additional costs. Therefore, it is important to choose cabling intended for flexible installation, with high resistance to mechanical damage. The outer sheath of this type of cables is often made of polyurethane (PUR), polyvinyl chloride (PCV) or thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), also called thermoplastic rubber. It is worth noting that when choosing cables one must not forget about certain basic criteria, such as rated voltage, type of conductor or the screen that protects the signal against electromagnetic interference caused by the the proximity of machinery and other electrical equipment. Moreover, the selection of proper cabling requires the knowledge of working characteristics of power chains that transport elements along the designated track only. On the other hand, the power chain should be adjusted to the mechanical properties and outer diameter of the cables. Those elements should match each other.
TME offers control cables for power chains suitable for flexible installation. The main manufacturers of this type of products are such companies as Helukabel, Lapp Kabel or IGUS. Cable series are diverse and adapted to the demanding industrial working conditions. Shielded and multi-shielded cabling is available, which may also be self-extinguishing and fire retardant in fire conditions.
An effective process that minimizes downtime will accelerate the return on costly investments.
Powered equipment places different demands on cells in terms of capacity, voltage or short circuit current.
