By accessing or using the Products, Services, and Network you accept this Policy and our Terms and Conditions, and you consent to our collection, use, disclosure, and retention of your Personal Information as described in this Policy. If you do not agree with any part of this Policy or our Terms and Conditions, you must stop accessing the Products, Services, and Network. To exercise any rights you may have over your Personal Information, please see the section on Your Choices below.
Our Products, Services, and Network are blockchain-agnostic and leverage distributed-data-storage systems, so nearly all data is kept directly with you and other users and not on our servers, computers, or other systems and devices. To help you manage your data and content, our Products and Services allow you to create and link an Account or Decentralized ID (“DID”). These features are intended to give you more control over your data and privacy-preserving options to choose how your Personal Information is shared and used by other applications or services. For example, to the extent any data is stored privately on the Products and Services, it is unreadable by other apps and users unless you expressly grant others permission to access your data.
When you visit our Sites or use our Products, Services, and Network, we may collect information that could identify you directly or indirectly (“Personal Information”). Personal Information does not include publicly available information or any data that has been deidentified, aggregated, or otherwise anonymized.
We only collect the minimum information needed to provide the Products, Services, and Network including:
We will never ask you to share your private keys, wallet seed, or other sensitive Personal Information. Trust no one that asks you to enter your private keys or wallet seed.
Cookies, tags, and similar technologies are small pieces of code placed on your browser, device, or hard drive when you visit a website or use an application (“Cookies”).
We are not responsible for the completeness, effectiveness, or accuracy of any of these or other third party opt-out options or programs.

We may use Personal Information for other limited purposes consistent with the purposes for which we collected that information. We will not use Personal Information for materially different or incompatible purposes without first taking reasonable steps to notifying you and, if necessary, obtain your consent.
We only disclose or share Personal Information with others with your consent or when permitted by applicable law, including under these circumstances:
We retain Personal Information only for as long as it is necessary and relevant to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected. We may retain Personal Information longer if we must do so to comply with applicable law. Once we no longer need to retain Personal Information, we permanently delete it or we may anonymize it so the Information can no longer be associated with a specific individual.
We use industry-standard security measures to protect the security and confidentiality of Personal Information. However, the security of information transmitted through or stored on the internet can never be guaranteed. To the fullest extent permitted by law, we are not responsible for any interception, interruption, or loss of data through the internet. You are responsible for maintaining the security of any password, user ID or other form of authentication involved in obtaining access to password-protected or secure areas of any of our Products, Services, and Network. We may suspend use of any aspect of the Products, Services, and Network without notice if we suspect any breach of security or similar issues.
Our Products, Services, and Network allow you to share information through other third-party applications, including dApps, or websites. These links are provided solely as a convenience to you if you share content. When you visit third-party websites or applications, those third parties may collect your Personal Information along with all content you share. We do not control those websites and applications, and we are not responsible for how they may treat your information. We encourage you to check the privacy policies and terms of those websites and applications to learn more about their practices.
You may review, opt-out of sharing, correct, or delete your Personal Information through your Account at any time or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
