With respect to our cloud offering, we may store personal data of visitors and users of our Users, who are hosting their website on Elementor (“Cloud Users”). 

If you are a visitor or user of our Cloud Users’ website, and you would like to make any requests or queries regarding data we process on their behalf, please contact them directly. For example, if you are a visitor or user of our Cloud User and you wish to access, correct, or delete data processed by Elementor on their behalf, please direct your request to the relevant Cloud User (who is the “data controller” of such data – per Section 11 below). Note that if you do contact us, we may share your communications with the relevant Cloud User.

We recommend our Cloud Users to provide their visitors and users with adequate notice (for example via a privacy policy on their website), including sufficient reference to the processing of such data by us, and any other information necessary to comply with applicable laws. If you are a visitor or user of our Cloud Users’ website, we recommend reading such privacy policy carefully and making sure that you fully understand and agree to it. Please note that such Cloud Users’ websites are not governed by this Privacy Policy.

11. Roles and Responsibilities

In plain English: we are the controllers of our Prospects and Users data; we are the processors of visitors and users’ data processed on our Cloud Users’ behalf.

Certain data protection laws and regulations, such as the GDPR or the CCPA typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing personal data: the “data controller” (or under the CCPA, “business”), who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “data processor” (or under the CCPA, “service provider”), who processes the data on behalf of the data controller. Below we explain how these roles apply to our Services, to the extent that such laws and regulations apply.

Elementor is the “data controller” of its Prospects and Users data. With respect to such data, we assume the responsibilities of data controller (solely to the extent applicable under law), as set forth in this Privacy Policy. In such instances, our Service Providers processing such data will assume the role of “data processor”.

Elementor is the “data processor” of its Cloud Users’ visitors and users’ data, which we process on behalf of our Cloud Users, who are the “data controller” of such data. Such processing will be in accordance with Elementor Cloud Data Processing Agreement (“DPA”). In these instances, our Service Providers processing such data will assume the role of “sub-processors”.

For the avoidance of doubt, each Cloud User is solely responsible for providing adequate notice to their visitors and users whose personal data may be processed – including sufficient reference to the processing of their personal data via the Services, and any other information necessary to comply with all applicable privacy and data protection laws; and to obtain all approvals and consents from such individuals as required under such laws.

The amended version will be effective as of the date it is published. We will provide prior notice if we believe any substantial changes are involved via any of the communication means available to us or via Services. After such notice period, all amendments shall be deemed accepted by you.

Our Services are not designed to attract children under the age of 18: we do not knowingly collect personal data from children and do not wish to do so. If we learn that a person under the age of 18 is using the Services, we will attempt to prohibit and block such use and will make our best efforts to promptly delete any personal data stored with us with regard to such child. If you believe that we might have any such data, please contact us by e-mail at [email protected].

California Requirements: This Privacy Policy describes the categories of personal information we may collect and the sources of such information (in Section ‎‎1 above), and our retention (Section 4) and deletion (Section 9) practices. We also included information about how we may process your information (in Sections 2 through 8), which includes for “business purposes” under the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). We do not sell your personal information for the intents and purposes of CCPA. We may share personal data with third parties or allow them to collect personal data from our Services as described in Section 6 above, if those third parties are authorised Service Providers or business partners who have agreed to our contractual limitations as to their retention, use, and disclosure of such personal data, or if you integrate the services of third parties with our Services, or direct us to disclose your personal data to third parties.
