By using the Software, you are consenting to our collection, storage, use and processing of any information that you provide to us via the Software or that you cause, or allow, to be provided from third parties to us via the Software and acknowledging that you have the right to cause, or allow, each such third party to provide any such information to us.
How is the information stored?
Because the Software uses the blockchain and other distributed ledger technologies to assemble, store and share consumer data, this information is stored among your and third parties’, and not on our, computer, network and/or other systems. Some distributed technologies may permanently retain data in accordance with its design even after the use of the Software has ended. The Software does, however, create unique identifiers to help manage and control the Information so that the manner in which it is shared with, and used by, third parties can be managed and controlled via the Software.
What Information do we collect and how is it used?
We collect the information you provide directly via the Software and/or that you cause, or allow, to be provided to us from third parties via the Software. If you use the Software to contact us, we may also collect your name, e-mail address, telephone number, the particulars of your communication and any other information requested by us, or provided by you, in doing so. We may also collect information you provide or make available if you interact with our publicly facing websites (e.g., our website or any social media activity), receive regular emails from us (e.g., newsletters, bulletins, etc.) and/or participate in other activities we offer that request you to provide Information.
We may also collect information about the computer, network and/or other systems you are using to access the Software, including the type, operating system, device settings, device identifiers and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on the type of computer, network and/or other systems you are using and its settings. To learn more about the information your device makes available to us, please review the policies of your computer, network and/or other systems manufacturer or software provider.
If you allow your location data to be provided, we may collect it. If you choose not to provide your location data to us, you may not be able to use all of the Software’s features.
We may collect non-personally identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, the prior and/or referring website and the date and time of each visitor request when visitors use the Software. Our purpose in collecting this information is to better understand how our visitors use the Software and we may release non-personally identifying information in the aggregate.
We may also collect potentially personally identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses and statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Software and may analyze these statistics to monitor the Software’s performance. This potentially personally identifying information could also be used to identify your online activities over time and across third-party websites or other online services (sometimes referred to as behavioral tracking).
We may use third-party services (e.g., Google Analytics, etc.) to collect, monitor and analyze the information you provide to us in order to increase the Software’s functionality and/or connect such information to information about you that we collect from these third-party services. Your provision of information to those third parties is subject to their privacy policies.
All of the information you provide to us, or we collect from you, is referred to in this Policy as “Information”.
How do we use your information?
The information may be used for the following purposes: (1) to provide and improve the Software, (2) to administer your use of the Software, (3) to better enable your use and navigation of the Software, (4) to better understand your needs and interests, (5) to fulfill requests you may make, to respond to questions you may ask or to respond to comments you may make, (6) to personalize your experience, (7) to provide you with announcements, notifications and/or advertisements related to your interests and use of the Software, (8) to provide electronic newsletters, promotional e-mails or similar messaging and communications, (9) to provide service announcements, (10) to protect against users seeking to misuse and/or hack into the Software and (11) to assess the level of general interest in the Software.
With which third parties do we share Information?
In addition to as describe above “How is the information stored?”, we may share Information with certain third parties such as our agents, service providers and other representatives acting on our behalf. For example, we may share Information with third parties to perform services on our behalf such as those (1) providing you access to the Software, (2) fulfilling your requests, (3) administering your account, (4) sending marketing communications or (5) conducting other business activities as needed.
We may disclose non-personally identifiable aggregated information about our users without restriction.
Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations or as described above, we disclose personally identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our, your, a third parties’ or the public’s rights.
If you send us a request (for example via support request), we may publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users. We may also disclose your personally identifying information if you expressly consent to the disclosure.
Will you sell Information?
We do not, to the best of our knowledge, sell or rent Information that we have collected or retain about you to any other third-party for any purpose. Accordingly, we do not offer individuals the ability to “opt-out” of the selling or renting of Information because we do not engage in those practices.
If substantially all of our assets are acquired, whether via third-party sale or judicial process (e.g., bankruptcy), Information would be one of the assets that is transferred to, or acquired by, a third party and any such third party would then be entitled to use Information as set forth in this policy.
For how long is data retained?
The period during which we store Information varies depending on the purpose for the processing. For example, we may store Information to facilitate transactions you have requested for so long as you are using the Software. We store Information for marketing purposes until you have opted-out of receiving further direct marketing communications in accordance with applicable law. In all other cases, we store Information for as long as it is needed by us to fulfill any arrangement between us and you. After any such arrangement is satisfied or terminated, Information is either anonymized (where permitted by applicable law), deleted or destroyed.
How are cookies and other analytical tools used?
The type of cookie or similar technology that may be used by the Software can be categorized as follows:
Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the Software. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted or whether they even are aware of them. We currently do not take action in response to these signals.
