We reserve the right to change this Policy from time to time. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by placing an in-app notification. Subject to applicable laws, your continued use of the Application and/ or services available through the Application after such modifications will constitute: (a) your inherent acknowledgment of the modified Policy; and (b) your agreement to abide and be bound by that Policy.

IMPORTANT: BY USING THE APPLICATION AND/OR SERVICES AVAILABLE THROUGH THE APPLICATION, YOU GIVE YOUR CONSENT THAT ALL PERSONAL DATA THAT YOU SUBMIT MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE MANNER AND FOR THE PURPOSES DESCRIBED BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT USE THE APPLICATION.

I. HOW WE COLLECT AND USE INFORMATION

1. Information We Get When You Use Our Services

We collect (or plan in version 1.0 to collect) the following analytics:

1.      A unique json token linked to each public Ethereum address generated by each local wallet.

2.      Number of times the app was opened per day for each json token.

3.      Number of times each tab was accessed within the app for each json token.

4.      Favorited projects for each json token (this will allow us to sort projects by popularity).

2. Information You Choose to Give Us

When you create a wallet, a user session with an authentication token is created unique to that device. If you are using chat (a possible upcoming feature), that user session is linked to a username, which we store on our server. If you are a creator, your user session is linked to data about your creator profile. In all cases, we do not store your UUID on our server.

We do not store and cannot access your private key or passphrase, and therefore cannot access any tokens or Ether in your account. We cannot recover lost funds, and each user is responsible for securely storing and backing up their wallet passphrase.

In the long term, we may migrate our chat and creator portal servers to the blockchain if Ethereum scales to handle larger datasets at a reasonable cost. For more information on scaling Ethereum, refer to the work of the Ethereum Foundation and proposed solutions like Plasma.io

It should be noted that for any and all personal information, reasonable steps will be taken to store and secure that information in our facilities with the appropriate cybersecurity safeguards. Moreover, only necessary employees that absolutely need access to these storage facilities will be allowed access under secure protocols. For personal information collected under the Know Your Customer requirements, we may use third party services to verify your information (‘Third Party Verifier’). All information collected and/or processed will be subject to Third Party Verifier’s privacy policy.

3. Information We Get From Third Parties

We use publicly available blockchain information to update the app. This information is accessible by scanning Ethereum blocks and checking the state of the Ethereum blockchain via public full nodes. At any time, you can use information from public nodes to verify balances or transaction information in our app.

We also query third party price endpoints to determine prices of Ether and Elix. This is strictly done for research purposes and to price our products/services according to market rates.

4.      How do we use your personal information?


We use any private Information that we collect generally to supply the requested services that you expect around blockchain technology. Additionally, we use collected information to:


- Satisfy Know Your Customer obligations;

- Communicate with you;
- Screen for potential risk or fraud; and

- When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services.


We use the device information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud, and more generally to improve and optimize our application and services (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the application and/or website, and if applicable, to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).

 

When you make a transaction via our platform you do not automatically receive marketing emails from us. If you wish to receive emails regarding offers and product updates you must check a box to receive these merchandising newsletter emails. You may opt out from these newsletters at any time.

When you sign up for our newsletters we are able to send you notifications of new product launches and other information of special interest.
