This Employee Privacy Notice (“Notice”) describes how we – Exelot Ltd. and our affiliates ("Exelot", "we", "our" or "us") - treat the personal data of our employees and contractors (“you", or “your”).

In order to protect your personal data held with us and our Service Providers, we are using industry-standard physical, procedural, and electronic security measures, including encryption where deemed appropriate. These measures provide sound industry standard security, however, please be aware that regardless of any security measures used, we cannot and do not guarantee the absolute protection and security of any personal data stored with us or with any third parties. We continue to regularly seek new ways and tools for further enhancing the security of our system and the integrity of the personal data that we hold.

If you wish to exercise your rights to access, rectify, erase or port your personal data held with Exelot, or to restrict or otherwise object to its processing, or to exercise any similar rights afforded to data subjects under the laws that apply to you - please contact us at
Please note that we may require additional information, including certain personal data, in order to authenticate and process your request. Such additional information may be then retained by us for legal purposes (e.g., as proof of the identity of the person submitting the request), in accordance with Section 4 above. We may redact from the data which we will make available to you, any personal data related to others.
Please also note that such rights are not absolute. There are instances where applicable law or regulatory requirements allow or require us to refuse to provide some or all of the personal data that we hold about you. In the event that we cannot accommodate your request, we will inform you of the reasons why, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions.

Certain data protection laws and regulations typically distinguish between two main roles for parties processing personal data: the “data controller”, who determines the purposes and means of processing; and the “data processor”, who processes the data on behalf of the data controller.
Exelot is typically the “data controller” of its candidates’ and employees’ personal data, and with respect to which, assumes the responsibilities of a data controller (solely to the extent applicable under the law), and as set forth in this Privacy Notice. In such instances, our Service Providers processing such data will assume the role of “data processors”.

Updates and amendments: we may update and amend this Notice from time to time by distributing an amended version. The amended version will be effective as of the published effective date. We will use reasonable efforts to provide advance notice if any substantial changes are involved, via any of the communication means available to us. After this notice period, all amendments shall be deemed accepted by you.
Questions, Concerns, or Complaints: if you have any comments or questions about this Privacy Notice or if you have any concerns regarding our data practices or your privacy, or your personal data held with us, or if you wish to make a complaint about how your personal data is being processed by Exelot, please contact us at
