Status limits its collection and processing of personal data from users of the Website. As such, we only collect and process the following personal data:
- Registration information: Status collects information from you when you register on the Website for various reasons, such as to sign-up to early access or to participate in discussion features of the Website. When registering on our site, you may be asked to enter your name, your e-mail address, a username or an Ethereum address. You may, however, visit our site without registering. Your e-mail address will be verified by an email containing a unique link. If that link is visited, we know that you control the e-mail address.
- IP address: We note that Status itself does not collect IP addresses of users, however this may still be collected by third parties, namely the hosting provider of this Website. For more on this, please see the section below: "Third party collection of personal data". Analytics: Status also makes use of privacy focused analytics which collects trends and insights (but not personal details) about website visitors. As part of such use, we briefly process your IP address but we have no way of identifying you. We however have a legitimate interest in processing such IP addresses to improve our website and business continually. This IP address is not stored over time.
- IP addresses: As part of the Hosting Provider' provision of hosting services to Status, they may also indirectly collect and process your IP address. They further utilise a third-party database to map the general location to which each IP address corresponds ("Location Information"). The Location Information that is mapped from an IP address is limited to country and city, however the precise location is not identifiable. The Hosting Provider uses this Location Information in order to more effectively provide their services to Status.
As a general approach, Status takes data security seriously and the measures we take as an organisation. In respect of the Website, we implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal data when you enter, submit, or access such information.
While it is not intended that Status will export your personal data from the website outside the European Union, Status (and the Hosting Provider) is obliged to protect the privacy of such personal data if it is exported outside the European Union or Switzerland and it will only be processed in countries or by parties that provide an adequate level of protection as deemed by Switzerland or the European Commission. Otherwise, Status will use specific forms of contractual clauses to ensure such personal data is provided the same protection as required in Switzerland or Europe. The transmission of personal data outside the European Union and Switzerland will always occur in conformity with applicable privacy legislation.
On the Website, you may come across links to third party websites. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.
