Which information we may collect on our Users?
We may collect two types of data and information from our Users:
a. Non-identifiable and anonymous information ("Non-personal Information"). We are not aware of the identity of the User from whom we have collected the Non-personal Information. Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed information which does not enable identification of an individual User, and which is available to us while such User is entering into and/or using the App. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information, behavioral information and aggregated information, and may contain, among other things, the activity of the User on the App (including , type of operating system, User's preferences 'click-stream' or searches on the App, type and version of browser, keyboard language, screen resolution, etc.
b. Personally identifiable information ("Personal Information"). This information may identify an individual or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature. We do not currently plan on collecting or storing any of your Personal Information through the use of the App. Our third party analytics services may collect the User's IP address primarily for enhancing the User's experience and for geo-location and security purposes as further detailed below.
Personal Information may be gathered if any personal details are provided consciously and voluntarily by the User in any contact made with us, including through any contact form which may be available through the App, which may include, inter alia, the User's name, country, company/organization name, the User's position in the company/organization, his/her e-mail address and telephone number. Once your contact details are received by us, our representatives may contact you for further communication. Our representative may collect additional Personal Information from you in the course of such communications.
The functionality of the App does, however, require you to provide a blockchain wallet address that is utilized to generate your list of potential push notifications. You may use your own wallet address or a wallet address that is not owned by you. This wallet address will be collected and stored by us and associated with your push notification preferences. If you do utilize your own wallet address, this will be collected and stored on the App together with your notification preferences.
For avoidance of doubt, any Non-Personal Information connected or linked to any Personal Information shall be deemed as Personal Information as long as such connection or linkage exists.
