TYPES OF DATA COLLECTED AND PURPOSES:

Depending on your interaction with us, we may collect two types of data from you:

“Non-Personal Data” means aggregated, non-personal non-identifiable information, which may be made available or gathered via your access to and use of the Services. We are not aware of the identity of the user from which the Non-Personal Data is collected. Such Non-Personal Data may include aggregated usage information and technical information transmitted by your device, such as browser version, operating system type and version, mobile network information, device settings, and software data.

“Personal Data” (as defined under the GDPR) or “Personal Information” (as defined under the CCPA or other US privacy legislations) meanindividually identifiable information, namely information that identifies an individual or may, with reasonable effort, be used to identify an individual.

For the avoidance of doubt, any Non-Personal Data connected or linked to any Personal Data shall be deemed as Personal Data as long as such connection or linkage exists.

Please note that the Company does not collect and process Personal Data you share directly with your Third-Party Services for the purposes of KYC verification and legal compliance (if applicable). However, we do collect public on-chain data such as your public address, transaction details, balance amounts and type of assets and wallets accessible through Third-Party Services you integrate with our Services. 

The table below details the types of Personal Data we collect, the methods and purpose of such collection, and our lawful basis for processing such Personal Data (where the GDPR applies):

DATA TYPEMETHODS AND PURPOSELAWFUL BASIS
Account Information When you create an account with us, we will collect information associated with your account, including your name, contact information, phone number, date of birth, email address, and any other information provided by you when opening your account (collectively, “Account Information”).

Account Information is required for the proper and basic operation of the Website and offering of Services. Further processing may be subject to our legitimate interest, for example for internal documentation, and improvement of service purposes by training our models.

Website Interaction and Marketing
When you interact with our Website, we may collect your online identifiers, such as Internet Protocol (IP) address, device identifiers, Cookie ID and tracking technologies and other unique identifiers (“Online Identifiers”). Online Identifiers are used in particular to operate the Website and enable its proper functionality, for example, to automatically recognize you by the next time you enter the Website or to confirm you are a real person.

Strictly necessary cookies are required for the proper and basic operation of the Website and will be processed in our legitimate interests, where such cookies collect Personal Data on our behalf.

Other cookies, to the extent these collect your Personal Data, will be based on your consent which we will obtain through our cookie notice and consent mechanism.

Image Collection

Users have the option to upload an image of their choice as their profile picture. We do not store the specific images selected by users for their profiles. Users retain full control over their profile images and can modify or delete them at any time within the settings.
In addition, for enhanced security and identity verification purposes, users may be asked to upload specific documents and provide a selfie.

Access to user images is requested for two distinct purposes: allowing users to set a profile image and facilitating identity verification. We do not employ user images for any other use except for these specified purposes.
Publicly Available Blockchain Data

We collect publicly available on-chain blockchain data such as your public address, transaction details and history, balance amounts and type of assets and wallets accessible through Third-Party Services you integrate with our Services.

This information is required to reflect the actual data pertaining to your accounts with Third-Party Services which is necessary for the proper operation of the Services.

We process Contact Information to respond to your inquiries, and provide you with the support, materials, updates and information you requested.

We process Contact Information subject to your consent. Further processing may be subject to our legitimate interest, for example for internal documentation and improvement of service purposes.
Legal Matters

We may use certain Personal Data to prevent potentially prohibited or illegal activities, fraud, misappropriation, infringements, identity thefts and any other misuse of the Services, to enforce our legal terms and conditions, to protect the security or integrity of our databases, and to take precautions against legal liability.

Such processing is based on our legitimate interests, which in this case are protecting our Services and data, exercising our legal rights, and complying with our legal obligations. 

Please note that the actual processing operation per each purpose of use and lawful basis detailed in the table above may differ. Such processing operation usually includes a set of operations made by automated means, such as collection, storage, use, disclosure by transmission, erasure or destruction. The transfer of Personal Data to third party countries as further detailed in the Data Transfer Section is based on the same lawful basis as stipulated in the table above. 

Also, please note our Services incorporate Multi-Party Computation (MPC) technology to generate encryption keys. As a component of our backup and recovery strategy, we offer the option to securely store an encrypted (and unidentified) portion of your key in your cloud storage. This measure is designed to simplify the process of recovering your account, should the need arise. To enable this feature, SendCrypto will request your permission to store and manage its encrypted key share within your cloud account, along with access to the associated email address for verification and recovery purposes. This process is fully compliant with privacy standards, ensuring your data remains protected and under your control at all times.
