Personal data that we may collect through our services may include information that is requested from time to time, such as names, email addresses, addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, and more. When we combine personal with non-personal data, they are treated by us as personal data as long as they are in combination.

Where do we store the data?

Non-personal data

Please note that our companies, as well as our trusted partners and service providers, are located all over the world. For the purposes explained in this Privacy Policy, we store and process all non-personal data that we collect in different legal jurisdictions.

Personal data

Personal data may be maintained, processed, and stored in the United States, Ireland, South Korea, Taiwan, Israel, and other legal jurisdictions as required for the proper provision of our services and/or as required by law (as further explained below).

How long will the data be retained?

Please note that we will retain the collected data for as long as necessary to provide our services, comply with our legal and contractual obligations to you, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We may correct, supplement, or delete inaccurate or incomplete data at any time at our discretion. We reserve the right to correct, supplement, or delete inaccurate or incomplete data at our discretion at any time.

How do we protect the data?

The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer our services to you. Your data may be stored on the data storage, databases, and general applications of our hosting provider. It stores your data on secure servers behind a firewall and offers secure HTTPS access to most areas of its services.

All payment options offered by us and our hosting provider for our digital assets comply with the PCI-DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) of the PCI Security Standards Council. This is the collaboration of brands such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card data (including physical, electronic, and procedural measures) by our shop and service providers.

Despite the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot and will not guarantee absolute protection and security of the data that you upload, publish or otherwise transmit to us or others. For this reason, we ask you to set secure passwords and not to transmit confidential information to us or others, the disclosure of which could cause significant or sustained harm in your opinion. Also, since email and instant messaging are not considered secure communication forms, we ask you not to disclose any confidential information through these communication channels.

How do we handle minors?

The services are not intended for users who have not yet reached the legal age of majority. We will not knowingly collect data from children. If you are not yet of legal age, you should not download or use the services and should not provide us with any information.

We reserve the right to request proof of age at any time in order to verify that minors are not using our services. In the event that we become aware that a minor is using our services, we may prohibit and block such users from accessing our services and we may delete all data about such users stored with us. If you have reason to believe that a minor has provided data to us, please contact us as described below.

We only use your personal data for the purposes set out in the privacy policy and only when we are convinced that:

• the use of your personal data is necessary to fulfill or enter into a contract (e.g. to provide you with the services themselves or customer support or technical support);

• the use of your personal data is necessary to comply with corresponding legal or regulatory obligations, or

• the use of your personal data is necessary to support our legitimate business interests (provided that this is always done in a way that is proportionate and respects your privacy rights).

As an EU resident, you can:

• request confirmation as to whether personal data concerning you is being processed or not, and request access to your stored personal data as well as certain additional information;

• request the receipt of personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format;

• request the correction of your personal data stored with us;

• request the deletion of your personal data; • object to the processing of your personal data by us;

• request the restriction of the processing of your personal data, or

• file a complaint with a supervisory authority.

Please note, however, that these rights may not be unlimited and may be subject to our own legitimate interests and regulatory requirements.
