Unidentified and non-identifiable information that you provide during the registration process or that is collected through the use of our Services ("non-personal data"). Non-personal data does not allow conclusions to be drawn about who collected it. Non-personal data that we collect primarily consists of technical and aggregated usage information.

Individually identifiable information, meaning all information by which you can be identified or could be identified with reasonable effort ("personal data"). Personal data we collect through our Services may include information that is requested from time to time, such as names, email addresses, addresses, phone numbers, IP addresses, and more. When we combine personal with non-personal data, they are treated as personal data as long as they are combined.

To whom do we disclose this data? We may disclose your data to our service providers to operate our services (e.g., storing data through third-party hosting services, providing technical support, etc.).

We may also disclose your data under the following circumstances: (i) to investigate, detect, prevent, or counteract unlawful activities or misconduct; (ii) to establish or exercise our rights in defense; (iii) to protect our rights, property, or personal safety, as well as the safety of our users or the public; (iv) in the event of a change of control within our organization or one of our affiliated companies (such as a merger, acquisition, or purchase of substantially all assets); (v) to collect, retain, and/or manage your data through authorized third-party providers (such as cloud service providers) to the extent reasonably necessary for business purposes; (vi) to collaborate with third parties in improving your user experience.

Personal data

Personal data may be maintained, processed, and stored in the United States, Ireland, South Korea, Taiwan, Israel, and other jurisdictions worldwide as required for the proper provision of our services and/or as legally prescribed (as further explained below).

How long are the data retained? Please note that we will retain the collected data for as long as necessary to provide our services, comply with our legal and contractual obligations to you, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

We can correct, supplement, or delete incorrect or incomplete data at any time at our discretion.

How do we protect the data? The hosting service for our digital assets provides us with the online platform through which we can offer our services to you. Your data can be stored on secure servers behind a firewall, and secure HTTPS access is provided to most areas of the services through our hosting provider's storage, databases, and general applications.

Despite the measures and efforts taken by us and our hosting provider, we cannot guarantee absolute protection and absolute security of the data you upload, publish, or otherwise provide to us or others.

For this reason, we ask you to set secure passwords and, if possible, not to transmit confidential information to us or others via email or instant messaging, as these are not considered secure communication methods.

How do we handle minors? The services are not intended for users who have not reached the legal age of majority. We will not knowingly collect data from children. If you are not of legal age, you should not download or use the services and should not provide us with any information.

We reserve the right to request proof of age at any time so that we can verify whether minors are using our services. In the event that we become aware that a minor is using our services, we may prohibit these users from accessing our services, block them, and delete all data stored about these users. If you have reason to believe that a minor has provided data to us, please contact us as described below.

We use your personal data only for the purposes set out in the privacy policy and only when we are convinced that:

The use of your personal data is necessary to fulfill or conclude a contract (e.g., to provide you with the services themselves or customer support or technical support);

The use of your personal data is necessary to comply with relevant legal or regulatory obligations; or

The use of your personal data is necessary to support our legitimate business interests (subject to this being done in a manner that is proportionate and respects your privacy rights).

Please note, however, that these rights are not unlimited and may be subject to our own legitimate interests and regulatory requirements. If you have general questions about the personal data we collect and how we use it, please contact us as indicated below.

In providing the services, we may transfer data across borders to affiliated companies or other third parties and from your country/jurisdiction to other countries/jurisdictions worldwide. By using the services, you consent to the transfer of your data outside the EEA.

If you are a resident of the EEA, your personal data will only be transferred to locations outside the EEA if we are convinced that there is an adequate or comparable level of protection for personal data.
