ATS Commitment to Data Privacy Compliance
ATS is committed to compliance with all applicable country-specific data privacy laws, including but not limited to, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Protecting the privacy and security of your Personal Data is of the highest importance to ATS; therefore, we conduct our business by abiding by applicable laws on data privacy and data security in every country in which we operate.
Through our Sites, ATS will not collect any Personal Data about you (e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it (e.g. by registration, survey, contest participation), provide your explicit consent, or unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations for the protection of your Personal Data.
Purpose of Use
When you do voluntarily provide us with Personal Data, we will use it only for the purpose for which you have provided it, for example, to respond to your inquiry, process your orders, register you for an event, provide information related to ATS products, services and events, manage your support accounts, offer you the opportunity to participate in surveys and contests, register for ATS training courses, or provide you access to additional information or offers. Also, to support our relationship with you:
- we may store and process Personal Data and share it with our worldwide affiliates to better understand your business needs and how we can improve our products and services; or
- we (or a third party on our behalf) may use Personal Data to contact you about an ATS offer in support of your business needs or to conduct online surveys to understand better your needs.
If you choose not to have your Personal Data used to support our relationship (especially direct marketing or market research), we will respect your choice. We do not sell or otherwise market your Personal Data to third parties.

This information is used to personalize our communications with you about products that are specific to your needs and interests. Rather than burden you with information that is not relevant or of interest to you, we try to target information that is specifically important to you.

This information is not shared with other organizations for any reason, commercial or business, without your prior explicit consent.
If you browse and/or apply for jobs in the Careers portion of our Sites, your application and any additional information that you provide may be used to assess your skills and interests against career opportunities at ATS, and for reporting purposes as may be required by Canadian law or country-specific laws.

ATS supplements the data it collects with additional data received from third-party sources, by using data append services or data brokers. The additional supplemental data consists of contact, company, and industry data, as well as title, department, address, phone number, and updated e-mail addresses. When using the information provided through these services, we will contact you via email to obtain either your explicit opt-in to continue marketing to you, or your explicit opt-out to remove you from our contact database, depending on the applicable data privacy regulation. For additional information about supplemental data and the third party sources, contact us at email@example.com.
The company does not sell, rent, or trade your Personal Data with third parties for any purpose.

Through your use of telecommunications services to access our Sites, your communications data (e.g. Internet protocol address) or utilization data (e.g. information on the beginning, end and extent of each access, and information on the telecommunications services you accessed) are technically generated and could conceivably relate to Personal Data. To the extent that there is a compelling necessity, the collection, processing and use of your communications or utilization data will occur and will be performed in accordance with the applicable data protection legal framework.

Clear Gifs (Web Beacons, Web Bugs)

We will only use or disclose Personal Data about a child to the extent permitted by law, to seek parental consent pursuant to local law and regulations or to protect a child.

ATS Sites contain links to other websites. ATS is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of other websites.
Data Security Breaches
To protect your Personal Data from unauthorized access and use, or accidental loss and destruction, ATS has implemented strict security controls and intrusion detection software to notify us in the case of any potential or actual invasion of our systems. We have implemented a Data Breach Notification Policy and have established an Incident Response Team that has been trained to react immediately to any unauthorized access of our databases and systems. Should any data security breach occur that materially and negatively impacts your Personal Data, you will be notified as soon as possible once the breach has been determined.
Right to Be Forgotten
ATS is committed to taking all reasonable steps necessary to ensure that any data you request to be forgotten and can be erased with existing technology will be erased. However, any data you post to our Sites that you agree to make available to third parties or for which you make public, is outside the boundaries of which ATS can erase. ATS will do everything technically possible to erase your data if you feel it is being held for longer than needed or if you withdraw your consent to receive information from us and request the right to be forgotten. However, ATS will not be able to erase your data if:
- it is technically impossible; or
- it is required to be retained for legal reasons (if mandated by local law).

In countries, states, provinces or regions where Do Not Track laws are in place, ATS will take every reasonable action to validate the lists we have received with the Do Not Track lists available through government agencies before communicating with you.

- Analytical and performance Cookies. These Cookies allow us to analyze activities on our Sites and on other sites where we post content in order to improve and optimize the way our Sites work. For example, we may use these types of Cookies to ensure that visitors can easily find the information they are looking for on our Sites. One way we do this is to recognize and count the number of visitors and see how they move around our Sites when they are using it. Analytics Cookies also help us measure the performance of our advertising campaigns in order to help us improve our advertising campaigns and to optimize our Sites’ content for those who engage with our advertising.
- Functionality Cookies. These Cookies are used to recognize you when you return to our Sites. This enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name, and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
- Advertising Cookies. These Cookies record your online activities, including your visits to our Sites, the pages you have visited, and the links and advertisements you have clicked. One purpose of this is to help make the content displayed on our Sites more relevant to you. Another purpose is to allow us and our service providers to deliver advertisements or other communications to you that are designed to be more relevant to your apparent interests. (When we and our service providers do so, this also involves partners such as publishers, data management platforms, and demand side platforms that help to manage the data). For example, if you look at one page on one of our Sites, we may cause an advertisement to be delivered to you, on our Sites or on other sites, for products referenced on that page or for similar products and services. We and our service providers and partners may also append other data to information collected by these Cookies, including information obtained from third parties, and share this information with third parties for the purpose of delivering ads to you.

- How long do Cookies stay on devices?
Some of our Cookies operate from the time you visit an ATS service to the end of that particular web-browsing session. These Cookies expire and are automatically deleted when you close your internet browser. These Cookies are called “session” Cookies.
Some Cookies will stay on your device between browsing sessions. They do not expire when you close your browser. These Cookies are called “persistent” Cookies. The length of time a persistent cookie stays on your device varies from cookie to cookie. We and others use persistent Cookies for a variety of purposes, such as to store your preferences so that they are available for the next visit, and to keep a more accurate account of how often you visit our Sites, how often you return, how your use of the Sites may vary over time, and the effectiveness of advertising efforts.
Cookies may be placed on your device by ATS as the Site operator. These Cookies are called “first party” Cookies. Some Cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than ATS. These Cookies are called “third party” Cookies. For example, an ATS partner may place a third-party cookie to enable online chat services.
Cookies may also be used that allow us and third parties to know when you visit our Sites, and to understand how you interact with emails, advertisements, or other content. Through Cookies, aggregate and other information not considered to be personal data (such as your operating system, browser version, and the URL you came from, including from emails and advertisements) may be obtained and used to enhance your experience and understand traffic patterns. This technology counts the number of users who visit a particular service from specific banner advertisements outside the ATS Site or who clicked on links or graphics included in email newsletters received from ATS. It is also used as a tool to compile aggregated statistics about how ATS Sites are used, to perform analytics and help us to optimize our Sites, and to help serve you advertising based on your interests, as described in further detail below.
We and third parties, including technology partners, and service providers engage in interest-based advertising to deliver advertisements and personalized content that we and other advertisers believe will be of interest to you. To the extent third party vendors are using Cookies to perform these services for ATS, ATS does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.
Ads may be delivered to you based on your online or mobile behavior (on ATS Sites and non-ATS websites), your search activity, your responses to one of our advertisements or emails, the pages you visit, your general geographic location, or other information. These ads may appear on our Sites or on third party websites.
It is important to know that ATS adheres to all applicable Cookie regulations and data protection laws. As data protection laws change around the world, ATS changes our policies, procedures and processes to ensure compliance with all relevant laws, regulations and directives.
ATS is committed to compliance with all applicable country-specific laws regardless where our corporate headquarters is located. We take the privacy of our employees, customers, prospects, suppliers, partners, and any other visitor to our Sites very seriously and ensure that we have put in place the necessary policies, procedures and processes to ensure we meet our legal obligations and protect the privacy of all individuals. Where required by law, we require an explicit opt-in from you before placing any Cookies on your devices. If local law does not require an explicit opt-in, we offer you the opportunity to opt out. However, we will place Cookies on your devices as stated above until you choose to opt out.
