You can visit the website without telling us who you are or revealing any information by which someone could identify you as a specific, identifiable individual. However, if you wish to use some of the website’s features, you will be asked to provide certain personal information. For example, if you use our blockchain explorer to view your on-chain activities, you will be asked to provide your Signum address. We receive and store any information that you knowingly provide to us when you publish content or complete any forms on the website. You can choose not to provide us with your personal information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of some of the website’s features. Users who are uncertain about what information is mandatory should not enter any information on the website.
Any of the information that we collect from you may be used to personalize your experience; to improve our website; to improve customer service; to respond to the queries and emails of our customers; to send newsletters; to send notification emails such as password reminders, updates, etc.; and to run and operate our website and services. Information collected automatically is only used to identify potential cases of abuse and establish statistical information regarding website usage. This statistical information is not otherwise aggregated in such a way that would identify any particular user of the system.
We may process personal information related to you if one of the following applies: (i) You have given your consent for one or more specific purposes. Under some jurisdictions, until you object to such processing by opting out, we may be allowed to process information without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases below. However, this does not apply whenever the processing of personal information is subject to European data protection law; (ii) Provision of information is necessary for the performance of an agreement with you and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof; (iii) Processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which you are subject; (iv) Processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or the exercise of official authority vested in us; (v) Processing is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by a third party or by us. In any case, we will be happy to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, particularly whether the provision of personal information is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.
Depending on your location, data transfers may involve transferring and storing your information in a country other than your own. You are entitled to learn about the legal basis of information transfers to a country outside the European Union or to any international organization governed by public international law or set up by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by us to safeguard your information. If any such transfer occurs, you can find out more by checking the relevant sections of this document.
You may exercise certain rights regarding your information processed by us. In particular, you have the right to do the following: (i) you have the right to withdraw consent where you have previously given your consent to the processing of your information; (ii) you have the right to object to the processing of your information if the processing is carried out on a legal basis other than consent; (iii) you have the right to learn if information is being processed by us, to obtain disclosure regarding certain aspects of that processing, and to obtain a copy of the information undergoing processing; (iv) you have the right to verify the accuracy of your information and ask for it to be updated or corrected; (v) you have the right, under certain circumstances, to restrict the processing of your information, in which case, we will not process your information for any purpose other than storing it; (vi) you have the right, under certain circumstances, to obtain the erasure of your personal information from us; (vii) you have the right to receive your information in a structured, commonly used and machine readable format, and, if technically feasible, to have it transmitted to another controller without any hindrance. This provision is applicable provided that your information is processed by automated means and that the processing is based on your consent, on a contract which you are part of, or on pre-contractual obligations thereof.
Where personal information is processed for the public interest, in the exercise of an official authority vested in us, or for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us, you may object to such processing by providing a ground related to your particular situation to justify the objection. However, should your personal information be processed for direct marketing purposes, you can object to that processing at any time without providing any justification. To learn whether we are processing personal information for direct marketing purposes, you may refer to the relevant sections of this document.

Some browsers incorporate a "do not track" feature that signals to the websites that you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. Tracking is not the same as using or collecting information in connection with a website. For these purposes, tracking refers to collecting personally identifiable information from consumers who use or visit a website or online service as they move across different websites over time. How browsers communicate the do not track signal is not yet uniform. As a result, this website is not yet set up to interpret or respond to do not track signals communicated by your browser. Even so, as described in more detail throughout this policy, we limit our use and collection of your personal information.
Our website contains links to other websites that are not owned or controlled by us. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites or third parties.

In the event we become aware that the security of the website has been compromised or users personal information has been disclosed to unrelated third parties as a result of external activity, including, but not limited to, security attacks or fraud, we reserve the right to take reasonably appropriate measures, including, but not limited to, investigation and reporting, as well as notification to and cooperation with law enforcement authorities. In the event of a data breach, we will make reasonable efforts to notify affected individuals if we believe that there is a reasonable risk of harm to the user as a result of the breach or if notice is otherwise required by law. When we do, we will post a notice on the website.
We will disclose any information we collect, use, or receive if required or permitted by law, such as to comply with a subpoena or similar legal process, and when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, investigate fraud, or respond to a government request.
