We implement and maintain reasonable administrative, physical, and technical security safeguards to help protect information about you from loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Nevertheless, transmission via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of information about you.
The personal data we collect will be transferred to and stored in countries outside of the jurisdiction you are in where we and our third-party service providers have operations, in particular, the Cayman Islands. If you are located in the European Economic Area ("EEA") or the United Kingdom, we commit to complying with the safeguards set out in Commission Implementing Decision (EU) 2021/914 of 4 June 2021 (the "Standard Contractual Clauses") as a data importer, and you can enforce your rights against us as a data subject as set out in the Standard Contractual Clauses. If you are in the United Kingdom, the Standard Contractual Clauses will be deemed amended to the extent necessary to apply in the context of the UK's privacy legislation. Onward transfers of your personal information to recipients outside the EEA or United Kingdom will be made pursuant to appropriate safeguards, including:
ensuring that recipients or the country in which they are located are deemed to provide adequate protection for personal information by the European Commission or, where applicable, under the UK Data Protection Act 2018 or regulations made by the UK Secretary of State; and
ensuring that transfers are subject to the Standard Contractual Clauses.
We will take appropriate steps to ensure that your personal data is treated securely and in accordance with applicable law and this privacy notice regardless of where it is processed. If you wish to enquire further about the safeguards we use, please contact us using the details set out in the section “Contact Us” below.
In accordance with applicable privacy law you have the following rights in respect of the personal information that we hold:
Right of access. You have the right to obtain:
confirmation of whether, and where, we are processing your personal information;

a copy of the personal information we hold about you.
Right of portability. You have the right, in certain circumstances, to receive a copy of the personal information you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format that supports re-use, or to request the transfer of your personal data to another person.
Right to rectification. You have the right to obtain rectification of any inaccurate or incomplete personal information we hold about you without undue delay.
Right to erasure. You have the right, in some circumstances, to require us to erase your personal information without undue delay if the continued processing of that personal information is not justified. Notwithstanding the foregoing, we cannot edit or delete information that is stored on a particular blockchain. This information may include transaction data (i.e., purchases, sales, and transfers) related to your blockchain wallet address and any NFTs held by your wallet address.
Right to restriction. You have the right, in some circumstances, to require us to limit the purposes for which we process your personal information if the continued processing of the personal information in this way is not justified, such as where the accuracy of the personal information is contested by you. You also have a right to object to any processing based on our legitimate interests. There may, depending on the particular circumstances, be compelling reasons for continuing to process your personal information despite your objection, and we will assess and inform you if that is the case. You can object to marketing activities for any reason.
