7. Cookies & other technologies

Our website uses cookies and similar technologies, such as pixel tags or web beacons, to collect and store information. These technologies involve pieces of information or code that are transferred to or accessed from your computer or mobile device to store and track information about you. They enable you to be remembered when interacting with websites and online services and can manage features, content, and personalized experiences. By using cookies and similar technologies, we distinguish you from other users and provide a better browsing and service experience. Most web browsers automatically accept these technologies, but you can change your browser settings if you prefer. However, this may limit your use of our website. Some cookies and technologies last for the duration of your session, while others remember you for longer. We use these technologies to fulfill our contract with you, pursue our legitimate interests, and comply with legal requirements. For more information, please refer to our Grindery Cookie Policy at the end of this document.

With your consent or where permitted by law, we will use your personal information for marketing analysis and to send you promotional updates by email or Telegram message.

9. Age Restrictions

You must be aged 18 years or older (or 21 in jurisdictions where applicable) to use the Services. We take steps to verify the age of users during account creation.

10. Information never required and that we will not collect.

We will never require you to provide us with your private keys; be aware of that. Avoid and take as a scam if you receive any request for your private keys and/or seed words from any site / individuals purporting to be our customer service representatives.

11. Personal data and the Blockchain

Blockchain technology, also known as distributed ledger technology (DLT), is at the core of our business. Blockchains are decentralized and made up of digitally recorded data in a chain of packages called "blocks". The manner in which these blocks are linked is chronological, meaning that the data is very difficult to alter once recorded. Since the ledger may be distributed all over the world (across several "nodes" which usually replicate the ledger) this means there is no single person making decisions or otherwise administering the system (such as an operator of a cloud computing system), and that there is no centralized place where it is located either.
Accordingly, by design, a blockchain’s data cannot be changed or deleted and is said to be "immutable". This may affect your ability to exercise your rights such as your right to erasure ("right to be forgotten"), or your rights to object or restrict processing of your personal data. Data on the blockchain cannot be erased and cannot be changed. Although smart contracts may be used to revoke certain access rights, and some content may be made invisible to others, it is not deleted.
In certain circumstances, in order to comply with our contractual obligations to you (such as delivery of tokens or provision of other services) it will be necessary to collect certain personal data, such as your wallet address, onto the blockchain; this is done through a smart contract and requires you to execute such transactions using your wallet’s private key.
The ultimate decisions to (a) transact on the blockchain using your wallet address, as well as (b) share the public key relating to your wallet address with anyone (including us) rests with you. IF YOU WANT TO ENSURE YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS ARE NOT AFFECTED IN ANY WAY, YOU SHOULD NOT TRANSACT ON BLOCKCHAINS AS CERTAIN RIGHTS MAY NOT BE FULLY AVAILABLE OR EXERCISABLE BY YOU OR US DUE TO THE TECHNOLOGICAL INFRASTRUCTURE OF THE BLOCKCHAIN. IN PARTICULAR THE BLOCKCHAIN IS AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC AND ANY PERSONAL DATA SHARED ON THE BLOCKCHAIN WILL BECOME PUBLICLY AVAILABLE.
Specifically, information regarding your digital wallet addresses (including transactions performed by said digital wallet addresses), public cryptographic key relating to digital wallet addresses on distributed ledger networks and/or similar information which you utilize to access the Website will be linked to your user account. By accessing our services, you provide your consent to our services reading and/or accessing information from such digital wallet addresses in order to verify ownership of any digital assets or tokens associated with such address (whether fungible or non-fungible). Users will have the ability to "add" their digital wallet address to access our services, as well as the ability to "remove" such stored wallets. All data obtained by us in connection with your digital wallet addresses shall be treated as personal data and dealt with in accordance with the provisions of this Privacy Policy.
