Continental CrimpCloud Privacy Policy

Welcome to Continental CrimpCloud  application (“CrimpCloud” or “Service”). This Privacy Policy describes how ContiTech USA, Inc. (“ContiTech”, “We”, “Us”, or “Our”) protects any personal information (i.e., information that can be used to identify You) that ContiTech collects about You when You set-up and use the Service.  It also outlines how ContiTech uses the information it collects about You.  By using the Service, You agree to the terms of this Policy, and consent to ContiTech’s use of the information collected through the Service.



Whenever You interact with Us on behalf of another individual or entity, such as by providing or accessing Personal Information about another individual, You represent that Your interactions and exchanges comply with applicable data protection laws. You shall have sole responsibility for any violation of privacy laws as a result of a failure to inform the other individual about how their Personal Information will be processed or Your failure to obtain any necessary consent from such individual.

Changes: ContiTech may modify this Policy from time to time without further notice.  Changes to the Privacy Policy become effective immediately upon notice to You. Notice may be given by posting the revised Privacy Policy on the website or by other means.  Your use of the Service after notice constitutes Your acceptance of the revised terms.  If any of the changes are unacceptable to You, please immediately cease interacting with Us. When required by applicable law, We will notify You of any changes to this Privacy Policy by posting an update on the website, or by otherwise notifying You in accordance with applicable law. When required by applicable law, We will seek Your consent before making material changes to the way We handle Personal Information previously collected from You. If You do not provide such consent, Personal Information will continue to be used in a manner that is consistent with the version of the Privacy Policy under which it was collected.

Sources of Personal Information


We collect information about You and how You interact with Us in several ways, including:


a.       Information You provide to Us directly.  We collect the information You provide to Us directly.

b.       Information automatically collected or inferred from Your interaction with us.  We automatically collect technical information about Your interactions with Us (such as IP address and browsing preferences).

c.       Information from third parties.  We may receive information about You and Your interactions with Us from third parties, such as the Subscriber, Your employer or coworkers, third party service and content providers, credit reporting agencies, companies that provide or sell lists of potential purchasers, and others interacting with us.

We may combine information that We receive from the various sources described in this Privacy Policy, including third party sources and public sources, and use or disclose it for the purposes identified below.

Personal Information Collected By ContiTech

ContiTech may collect personal information that can be used to identify You individually, such as Your name, address, and e-mail address, when You register as a user of the Service. 


As used in this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” refers to any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person or household, and includes, but is not limited to, the categories and types of “personal information” or “personal data” set forth in applicable data protection laws and regulations.

ContiTech does not collect Personal Information unless You voluntarily submit it in connection with Your use of CrimpCloud, send inquiries to ContiTech, or participate in certain activities available via CrimpCloud.  We collect Personal Information when You choose to use certain features of CrimpCloud, including when You register for or create an account.


The types of Personal Information that We may have collected about You during Your registration and use of the Service during the preceding 12 months are:


a.       Identifiers, such as Your name, alias, postal address, country of residence, unique personal identifier, online identifier, internet protocol address, email address, account name, phone number, social media identifiers (e.g., Twitter handle, Instagram name, etc.) social security number, driver’s license number, passport number, or other similar identifiers.

1.       Special Note About IP Addresses. An IP address is a number that is assigned automatically to Your computer when You connect to the world wide web.  Your computer is identified by its IP address.  We collect your IP address for system administration and to audit the use of the Service, but we do not share your IP address with 3rd Parties. 

b.       Internet or other electronic network activity information, such as Your browsing history, search history, and information regarding Your interactions with Us (including interacting with Us through CrimpCloud, online, and through advertisements).

c.       Inferences drawn from any of the information We collect to create a profile about You reflecting Your preferences, characteristics, psychological trends, predispositions, behavior, attitudes, intelligence, abilities, and aptitudes.

Note that We generally try to match the information that We collect from You to the information We require in order to provide You the information, products or services You request, and the above list is broad to simply capture the types of information required for many possible different interactions between us.  Not all of the above information is captured for each interaction between us.  Our core business is providing products and services and information about those products and services, as well as information that can help Us improve those products and services, as opposed to collecting information about You and trying to monetize that information in a manner not related to the products and services We provide.  Sometimes We do need to share information We collect with third party service provides in order to provide You the information, products or services You request (see below for more details about sharing of information).  Privacy expectations and regulations are changing, and We expect Our use and handling of Your information will change over time to meet those changes and expectations.
