We collect business contact information – such as the Title, email, and phone numbers of individuals working in their professional capacity. We use this information and build professional profiles of individuals as well as profiles of business entities. We organize and provide this information to our customers, for their own business-to-business sales, marketing activities, and outreach.

If you wish to opt out of our database, you may visit our Privacy Center. You can also claim your professional profile and update your profile information. Alternatively, you may also send us an email or call us. Our contact information is provided in the “Contact Us” section of this Policy.

If your profile remains in our database, our customers may contact you, for their business-to-business sales and marketing activities and outreach. Communications sent by our customers would generally be relevant to your profession or employment; however, we cannot assure you that you will find such communications to be relevant or interesting to you.


II. How Elevate Ecosystem Collects Information

Where does EEPL get the Business Information for its Business Profiles?
EEPL develops profiles of businesses and people in those businesses. These are termed as “Business or Company Profile” and “Contact Profile”.  Once we have collected Business Information about a person or company, we discover and append multiple data points regarding a single person or business entity into a Contact or Company Profile. This directory of Professional and Business Profiles is then made available to our customers. Information in a Company or Contact Profile may include name, email address including business and other email addresses, job title and role, phone number (general or direct business numbers and/or mobile numbers), company name, and address of the company. Company or Contact Profiles may also include links to an individual’s or a business’s social media profile.

EEPL collects the data for its Business Profiles in multiple ways, including:

1. Automated and human research including web scans and scraping to collect publicly available information.
2. Obtaining information from other companies and our partners and affiliates.
3. Information provided by our customers.
4. Information collected through research, surveys, and interviews, including phone interviews, undertaken by our in-house research team through market surveys, phone interviews, and other forms of research.
5. Through patterns and correlation of data points to infer and then test further data points, including a business email ID of the person, if it is not publicly available.



How else does EEPL Collect Information?
a) Using EEPL Integrations.
As part of our Services, EEPL may offer its customers certain “Integrations” (automated connects and exchanges). While using EEPL’s Integrations, Business or professional Information from the customer’s CRM, Marketing Automation or sales enablement software may be sent to EEPL for purposes of enriching, matching, or cleansing the customer’s data against EEPL’s database. 
EEPL may store and process such Business Information to enrich the records, identify contacts, or enhance the services. 
EEPL may verify the accuracy of such Business Information, remove obsolete Business Information, or otherwise improve EEPL’s research processes, and the information provided through the Services. We shall not reveal the source of specific data except as required by law. It is generally difficult to attribute such data to any specific source.

b) From third parties.
EEPL may obtain personal information from our partners, data and information providers, and affiliates. This information is used to improve the accuracy of our records and we may use this information to enhance our records.

c) Use inferences to arrive at more information.
Our data research and modeling team uses the information we have to develop correlations and model cause-effect scenarios and thus lead to inferences or to designate a propensity or intent score or rating. 

We develop algorithms that assess multiple data points to arrive at a score predicting the likelihood of a data subject responding to our customers’ marketing outreach efforts. We also use patterns and correlations to infer specific data points about a subject, which may include a business email ID, if not publicly available.

d) Business Data submitted through our Site.
We collect personal data and business information such as first name, last name, email address, company name, phone number, and any comments/messages you submit by filling out a contact form on our site, newsletter subscription form, or by sending us an email.

A. For residents of the EEA, the UK, or Switzerland.
EEPL strives to adhere to the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) as relevant to the information available with it regarding EEA-, UK-, and Switzerland-based persons (“data subjects”). We undertake data processing involving personal (Business related only) information, only where there are legitimate reasons to do so. These may involve the consent of the person (as obtained through a campaign), execution of a contract, fulfillment of a legal obligation, or the legitimate interest of EEPL or a third party. EEPL sends email notices to all data subjects as required by GDPR Article 13 or 14, as appropriate, and values the rights of data subjects provided in Articles 12-23, including the right to be forgotten. Notice is provided only where we have access to the email ID of the data subject and where the information has been partially or fully received from non-public sources. For any opt-out requests or other inquiries related to privacy, please visit our privacy center or email

GDPR requires a data controller or processor to integrate data protection concerns into every aspect of processing activities. This approach is known as ‘data protection by design and by default’. It is a key element of the GDPR’s risk-based approach and its focus on accountability.  EEPL adheres to this approach

Data Transfers: We may transfer to or store and process the personal information we collect in the United States or any other country where we or our affiliates or partners have facilities. As required under GDPR, we ensure that the transfer of personal information to a third country or an international organization is undertaken with safeguards as described in Article 46 of the GDPR, such as the UK or EU Standard Contractual Clauses, as applicable.

The right to data portability. Such data subjects can request a copy of their data. They can also request that this data be sent to some other entity, if technically feasible
The right to request data removal.

The right to object to our processing. Such data subjects can object to our processing if such processing is based on legitimate interests or in undertaking a task in the public interest or using such data for direct marketing.
