speaking with our employees and other representatives in support of the various services that we

or “us”) has created this Privacy Policy to explain to you our privacy practices regarding the

information we gather from you when you visit our Website and utilize the Services.

This Privacy Policy aims to give you information on how Elimold collects and processes your

personal data through your use of the Website and our Services for our own purposes (i.e., where

we are the Controller). It is intended to meet our duties as a Controller of Transparency under

We collect information about you in various ways when you use our Website and Services.

Information You Provide

We collect the information you voluntarily provide to us. For example:

  • We may collect personal information from you, such as your first and last name, phone

number, email address, company name, job title and password when you create an account

to log in to our Website or as a Customer or Manufacturing Partner (“Account”).

  • We may collect personal information from you, such as your first and last name, phone

number, email address, company name, and job title when you engage in conversation with

a chatbot (“Bot”) or through electronic or non-electronic means.

  • When you use support services or access our Website, we will collect all information

necessary to complete the transaction that you have requested or authorized, depending on

the nature of the Services that you are accessing. Such information may include your name,

e-mail address, credit card information, bank account information, social security number

and/or tax identification number, billing information and shipping information.

  • We retain information on your behalf, in order to maintain and service your Account in order

to deliver the Services.


If you provide us feedback or contact us via email, we will collect your name and email

address, as well as any other content included in the email, in order to send you a reply.


In certain circumstances we may request that you provide us with photocopies of your ID and

other related documents for fraud prevention purposes and to verify your identity.

  • When you participate in one of our surveys, we will collect the information you provide.
  • We may also collect personal information at other points on our Website that state that

personal information is being collected.


If you provide us feedback or contact us via text message (“SMS”), we will collect your name

and phone number, as well as any other content included in the SMS, in order to send you a


Information Collected Via Technology

We collect certain information automatically via various technological means. We collect information

via technology in the following ways:

  • Log Files. As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store

it in log files. This information includes aggregate information on the pages customers

access or visit (but not on which pages individual users visit), IP addresses, browser type,

Internet Service Provider (ISP), operating systems, date/time stamp and clickstream data.

We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Website and better tailor our

Services to our users’ needs.

  • Cookies. Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information. “Cookies” are

small files that a website or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive

through your Web browser that enables the website’s or service provider’s systems torecognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. We use cookies to

help us understand your preferences based on previous or current site activity and compile

aggregate data about Website traffic and Website interaction so that we can offer better

Website experiences and tools in the future. You can choose to have your computer warn

you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to turn off all cookies. You do this

through your browser (e.g., Microsoft Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, or

Apple Safari) settings. Each browser is a little different, so look at your browser Help menu to

learn the correct way to modify your cookie preferences. If you turn cookies off, you will not

have access to many features that make your Website experience more efficient and some

of our Services will not function properly. We use cookies only to record session information

and to tailor marketing information and other services to you. We do not use cookies to

obtain personally identifiable information.

  • Pixel Tags. In addition, we use “Pixel Tags” (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or

Web bugs). Pixel Tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to

Cookies, which are used to track online movements of Web users. In contrast to Cookies,

which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, Pixel Tags are embedded invisibly in Web

pages. Pixel Tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and

they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages

that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate

messages sent to a user.

  • Third Party Analytics. We use third party services providers, such as Google Analytics, to

help analyze how users use the Website (“Analytics Providers”). Analytics Providers use

Cookies to collect information such as how often users visit the Website, what pages they

visit, and what other sites they used prior to coming to the Website. We use the information

we get from Analytics Providers only to improve our Website and Services. Analytics

Providers collect only the IP address assigned to you on the date you visit the Website,

rather than your name or other personally identifying information. We do not combine the

information generated through the use of Analytics Providers with your personal data.

No Special Categories of Personal Data

We do not collect any “Special Categories of Personal Data” about you (this includes details about

your race or ethnicity, religious or philosophical beliefs, sex life, sexual orientation, political opinions,

trade union membership, information about your health and genetic and biometric data). Nor do we

collect any information about criminal convictions and offences.

How Do We Use Your Personal Information?

General Use.

We will only use your personal data for the purposes for which we collected it as listed below, unless

we reasonably consider that we need to use it for another reason and that reason is compatible with

the original purpose.If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will update this Privacy Policy and

we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

What is our “legal basis” for processing your Personal Data?

In respect of each of the purposes for which we use your personal data, the GDPR requires us to

ensure that we have a “legal basis” for that use. Most commonly, we will rely on one of the following

legal bases:

  • Where we need to perform a contract, we are about to enter into or have entered into

with you (“Contractual Necessity”).

  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and your interests and fundamental rights

do not override those interests (“Legitimate Interests”). More detail about the specific

legitimate interests pursued in respect of each purpose we use your personal data for is set

out in bullet form below.

  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (“Compliance with Law”).

We use your personal information in the following ways:

Identify you as a user in our system or within the system of a third-party service provider or

instance, you may receive e-mail from us to verify ownership of the email address provided

when your Account was created;

notifications, concerning your Account status or other transactions or activity associated with

our delivery of the Services;

and for other marketing purposes of Elimold.

User Testimonials. We often receive testimonials and comments from users who have had positive

experiences with our Services. We occasionally publish such content. When we publish this content,

we may identify our users by their first and last name, company name and may also indicate their

home city. We obtain the user’s consent prior to posting his or her name along with the testimonial.

Creation of Anonymous Data. We may create anonymous information records from your

Specifications and any personal information we collect by excluding information (such as your name)

that makes the information personally identifiable to you. We use this anonymous information to

analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of our Website and

improve our Services, including our pricing algorithms. We reserve the right to use anonymousinformation for any purpose and disclose anonymous information to third parties at our sole


What happens when you do not provide necessary personal data?

Where we need to process your personal data either to comply with law, or to perform the terms of a

contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to

perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you. For example, we may not be able to

provide you with the functionalities of the Website (e.g., setting up your account or providing a quote)

or we may not be able to respond to or fulfil a request you make of us (e.g., for a demonstration of

the products).

the time.

share your information with our Manufacturing Partners to enable them to manufacture the

parts, assemblies and other items disclosed therein.

  • Sharing Manufacturing Partner Personal Information with Third Party Business Partners.

Elimold may also share Manufacturing Partners’ personal information with a limited number

of third-party business partners who enable us to deliver the Services for those

Manufacturing Partners who enroll in our payment or card programs. These third-party

business partners assist us in delivery of the card and payment programs to you. Examples

of these third-party business partners include payment processors, credit card network

services, and banks or financial institutions. The use of your personal information shared

with third party business partners will be governed by their privacy policies.

connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition or dissolution,

of our business or assets. In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership,

personal information may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company

acquires our company, business or assets, that company will possess the personal

information collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding the personal

information as described in this Privacy Policy.● Other Disclosures. Regardless of any of the choices you make regarding your personal
