1.8. The Website and the App may contain links to external Sites, which are not governed by this Privacy Policy, and Hypersphere does not take responsibility for the Privacy Practices of any third-party Sites to which we link. We encourage you to review the Privacy Policies of such Sites before you submit information there.

 

2. Your data privacy with Hypersphere

2.1. We use the personal information you give us in various ways but primarily to allow us to provide you with the products and services you’d like to use as well as offer our support services. We do not sell or make available your data to any third parties for marketing, advertising or related purposes.

2.2. Depending on what services you want to use or products you want to buy or trade in we will ask you for various information. This could be your email address or contact number so we can communicate with you or be some form of proof of identity such as an ID (Identification Document) card, driving license or passport, and a photo. To help us get to know you as a customer and comply with applicable laws and regulations – such as anti-money laundering, fraud or sanctions – we may require a proof of address and when trading or investing, proof of banking details.

So the types of information we may collect and process are as follows:
– first and last name;
– address, postal code, city, country of residence;
– nationality;
– contact information, such as your email address and telephone number;
– copy of your ID together with metadata (e.g. document number,
document type, issue date, and expiration date).

We may also receive personal data about you from various third parties and public sources. For example, we may collect details about your transactions as published on blockchain networks, as well as any other information from providers of compliance, technical and payment services we may need to obtain in order to achieve the purposes of use set out in Section 3 below. However,
please note that we do not control how the third parties process your personal data.

2.3. We need and are permitted to have your information for three reasons – either because you have agreed to give it to us or to be able to provide our products and services to you, or because we are legally required to obtain it. In each case, we will only ask for, store and use information that we reasonably require and we will only hold on to if for as long as we need to or that the law requires us to do.

2.4. All our data and your information are held in secure servers. We do use a number of different operating systems that are subject to strict security measures and legal obligations.

2.5. We use a number of technical and procedural measures to ensure the safety of your data. Your personal data is primarily stored and processed inside the European Economic Area (EEA), but may also be transferred, processed and stored on servers located in countries outside the EEA in order to carry out the activities specified in this Privacy Policy. Your personal data can, therefore, be subject to privacy laws that are different from those in your country of residence. However, if we do transfer personal data collected within the EEA to third parties outside the EEA, such transfer will be based on the safeguards either of the standard contractual clauses issued by the EU Commission.

2.6. We may collect the email addresses at the point of subscription of users who wish to receive email notification of publications and press releases in identified subject areas of interest, and of those who send us email messages or express interest regarding our services or employment opportunities, or register for conferences and other UNIQUES-sponsored events. We will not, however, share any email addresses with any third party or send unsolicited email to any of the addresses we collect, except in very limited circumstances as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

2.7. We may also disclose certain personal data to our current or future affiliates, subsidiaries, and other related entities, as well as to our operational and business partners and sub-contractors when this is necessary for the performance and execution of any contract we enter into with them or you. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal data and to treat it in accordance
with the law. We do not allow our third-party service providers to use your personal data for their own purposes and only permit them to process your personal data for specified purposes and in accordance with our instructions.

2.8. You have various rights such as the right to ask us what information we hold about you, ask us to correct or delete information about you or to restrict our use of it. You also have the right to request us to export or transfer data to other companies. And you have the right to complain about our use of your data and submit a complaint to the relevant data protection authority. You can reach us at any time via email.

2.9. If you opted in to receive information about our product, updates, and offers, we will use your name and email address to send this information to you. If you no longer wish to receive these communications, you can unsubscribe by following the instructions contained in the emails you receive or on our Website. Please note that we may send you transactional and relationship messages, even if you have unsubscribed from our marketing communications.
