"User" means an individual user whether or not issued a separate and discrete user ID by completing any registration process. While Linde, Inc. and its wholly-owned and affiliated companies may have their own separate identities, we sometimes refer to Linde companies in general by using "Linde", "Our", "We", or "Us" (or where no compelling purpose is served by identifying any particular Linde company).
