How Quantemol may use your Information

Personal Information you share with us

“Personal Identifiable Information" is the information that identifies you as an individual, such as name, postal address, telephone number, email address, and/or credit card number. Quantemol collects Personal Information only when you submit it to us.

Account registration

The minimum information we need to register a consumer is an email address and a password. We will ask further questions for different services, including sales promotions. Unless stated, all registration questions are compulsory. We may also ask some further, voluntary questions during registration for certain services so we can gain a clearer understanding of our visitors and consumers. This also enables us to personalise services for our visitors and consumers.

Information we automatically collect

Quantemol may automatically collect Non-Personally Identifiable Information on all visitors and consumers interacting with our online services, including your IP address, browser type, operating geography, and pages visited. If you access our Online Services from a mobile or other devices, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device. This information is used to personalize your experience across all Quantemol platforms. It also allows us to display relevant content, services and advertising to the appropriate audience.
