How we use information we collect

- we need to perform the contract we have entered into (or are about to enter into) with you, including to operate our Platform and Services, to provide support and to protect the safety and security of our Platform and Services;
- you've given us consent to do so for a specific purpose and may be rewarded for this, for example when you use our market place or other rewarding services with your explicit permission; or
- we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.
- If you have given us consent to use your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw your consent any time by accessing your account and removing the information, but please note this will not affect any use or sharing of your information that has already taken place.
- We do not share your personal information with any company outside our group for marketing purpose, unless with your express specific consent to do so.
- For users of our Platform who are located in the European Union, we have set out our legal bases for processing your information in the Legal Bases Table at the end of this policy.
How we share information we collect
- We share information in encrypted format with third partie nodes that help us operate, provide, support, and improve our Platform and Services for example third-party service providers who provide, data storage and backup, infrastructure, and other services. Such providers never have access to any information in unencrypted form.
- Our Platform may contain links to and is used by third-party websites or applications over which we have no control. If you follow a link to any of these websites or approve sharing of any information with applications, your information will be governed by their policies. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of third-party websites before you submit information to them.
- We may share your information with government and law enforcement officials to comply with applicable laws or regulations, for example when we respond to claims, legal processes, law enforcement, illegal activities, national security requests or investigations of violations of our Terms. As we do not store or process the information in unencrypted format and do not have access to decrypt your information without your approval, the information we share is mainly in encrypted form.
- If we are acquired by a third party as a result of a merger, acquisition, or business transfer, your personal information may be disclosed and/or transferred to a third party in connection with such transaction. We will notify you if such transaction takes place and inform you of any choices you may have regarding your information.
How we store and secure information we collect
- We use decentralized and centralized data hosting and cloud storage service providers such as but not limited to IPFS, Ethereum, AWS and a decentralized node network to host the information we collect.
- For all the data you provide us through the Platform and Services stored in encrypted form, only you hold the encryption key and we are not able to access any of this data or your encryption key. This ensures we are not able to access any of your private information or use this for any purposes and only have access to encrypted data for providing you our Service. Interaction with our Services are encrypted end-to-end, so even if we temporarily store them on our servers, neither we nor any third parties can read them. We have access to temporarily decrypt your Contact Data but only to provide you our services for recovery and login. All Account Data and Contact Data is otherwise only shared to us if you explicitly give us permission for example to support you from our customer service or other reasons specifically approved.
We have adopted the following measures to protect the security and integrity of your personal information:
- Information transfers are encrypted using TLS/SSL technology;
- We use industry standard data encryption such as ECIES (Elliptic Curve Integrated Encryption Scheme), AES128-CBC or AES256-CBC and for signatures ECDSA (Elliptic Curve Digital Signature Algorithm).
- access to any information is restricted so we do not have access to decrypt information stored in encrypted form and other very limited information processed is limited to personnel or service providers on a strictly need-to-know basis such as Contact Data for performing OTP authentication or initiate recovery, who will only process your information on our instructions and who are subject to a duty of confidentiality and does not store the data; and
- our information collection, storage, and processing practices are reviewed regularly.
- We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected privacy breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
- While we implement safeguards designed to protect your information, please note that no transmission of information on the Internet is completely secure. We cannot guarantee that your information, during transmission through the Internet or while stored on our systems or processed by us, is absolutely safe and secure. Most of the information is encrypted already in your browser and therefore only transferred over the internet in encrypted form.
- We only retain personal information for so long as it is reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements. After such time, we will delete or anonymise your information, or if this is not possible, we will securely store your information and isolate it from further use. We periodically review the basis and appropriateness of our data retention policy.
How you can access, forget or change your information
- To manage, change or delete your information you can do this under the Settings icon on the Platform or in an application. By doing this your information will be forgotten and will not be possible to recover.

Before deleting your account make sure you do not need any funds, information or similar data from your account as you will not be able to recover your account once deleted. We do not store your private key and will not be able to help you recover your funds or information if you delete your Account.
How we transfer information internationally

We transfer, process, and store your information outside your country of residence where we or our service providers operate for the purpose of providing our products and Services to you.
- Some of the countries in which our companies or service providers are located may not have the privacy and data protection laws that are equivalent to those in your country of residence. When we share information with these companies or service providers, we make use of contractual clauses, corporate rules, and other appropriate mechanisms to safeguard the transfer of informatio
