3. Data processing in connection with the Websites

3.1 Visiting our Websites

When you visit our Websites, our hosting provider(s) may automatically collect and store various information in server log files that your browser transmits to us. This information is not assigned to specific individuals nor linked to data from other sources. The following technical data may be recorded by us, as is standard with every connection to a web server, and stored by us until automatic deletion, no later than two days:

  • IP address
  • Date and time of the request
  • Time zone difference from Greenwich Mean Time (GMT)
  • Content of the request (specific page)
  • Access status/HTTP status code
  • Data volume transferred
  • Website making the request
  • Browser type and version
  • Operating system and its interface
  • Language and version of the browser software

The collection and processing of this technical data enable the use of our Websites, ensure continuous system security and stability, optimize our Websites, and serve internal statistical purposes. This constitutes our legitimate interest in processing data under Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Additionally, in the case of attacks on the network infrastructure or other unauthorized use or misuse of the Websites, the IP addresses may be evaluated along with other data for intelligence and protection purposes. If necessary, they may be used in criminal proceedings for identification and civil and criminal actions against the relevant users. This is our legitimate interest in processing data under Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

3.2 Use of Website Cookies

The Websites may use cookies. Cookies are text files stored on a computer system via an Internet browser. For more detailed information on cookies and how they work, please visit [All About Cookies](http://www.allaboutcookies.org).

Many internet sites and servers use cookies, which often contain a unique identifier known as a cookie ID. This cookie ID is a string of characters that allows internet pages and servers to be assigned to the specific browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables visited websites and servers to distinguish the user's browser from other browsers that contain different cookies, allowing a specific browser to be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

By using cookies, the Foundation can provide users with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting.

Cookies enable us to recognize our Website users. This recognition simplifies the use of our Websites for users. For example, a user who has cookies enabled does not have to enter their access data each time they visit the Website, as the Website takes care of this automatically by storing the cookie on the user's computer system.

You can prevent the setting of cookies on our Websites at any time by configuring the appropriate settings in your Internet browser, thereby permanently denying the setting of cookies. Additionally, previously set cookies can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. However, if you deactivate the setting of cookies in your Internet browser, it may not be possible to use all the functions of our Websites.

3.3 Registration for our newsletter (if relevant)

To receive our newsletter, registration is necessary. During registration, please provide your name and email address. By completing the registration, you consent to the processing of your provided data for the purpose of receiving periodic newsletters at the specified email address. This consent serves as the legal basis for processing your email address in accordance with Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR. Rest assured, any information collected will not be shared or sold to third parties.

Each newsletter contains an unsubscribe link, allowing you to opt out at any time. Upon unsubscribing, your personal data will be promptly deleted.

3.4 Social Media

We incorporate plug-ins from various social networks such as Blog, GitHub, YouTube, Reddit, Gitter, Twitter, StackExchange, Facebook, or Meetups on our websites. When you activate these plug-ins by clicking on them, the operators of the respective social networks may collect information indicating your presence on our websites and may utilize this data. The processing of your personal data in this context falls under the responsibility of the individual social media platforms and is subject to their respective privacy policies. We advise you to refer to the privacy policies of these individual social media platforms for further clarification. It's important to note that the Foundation bears no responsibility for the data collected by these individual social media platforms. Our usage of these platforms is solely intended to keep our community informed about updates and to address user inquiries.

3.5 Event Registration

To register for any event organized by Chainsense Ltd and LycanChain through our websites, we may request the following registration details: First and last name, preferred language, company affiliation, company title, credit card information, and email address.

The legal basis for processing this data for the aforementioned purposes is the fulfillment of an agreement as outlined in Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR.

4. Parties with Access to Collected Information

With the exception of our Websites' providers, we do not share your personal data with third parties unless you have provided explicit consent, if legal obligations mandate it, or if it's necessary to uphold our rights within a contractual relationship.

Personal data collected via our Websites may be accessible to and/or shared with the service provider(s) of the Websites. These Websites may be hosted on servers located in the US. The data transfer serves the purpose of ensuring the functionality and maintenance of our Websites, aligning with our legitimate interest as per Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

When making payments via credit card on our Websites, your credit card details may be transmitted to the credit card issuer and acquirer. Should you choose this payment method, you may be required to provide all necessary information. The legal basis for such data sharing lies in fulfilling an agreement, as per Article 6, Paragraph 1, Lit. b of the GDPR.

5. International Transfer of Personal Data

For the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy, we reserve the right to transfer your personal data to third parties abroad. This notably includes:

  • Our Websites' service providers; and/or
  • - E-commerce providers such as payment solution providers, aiding in the processing of your online transactions.

These recipients are obligated to safeguard data privacy to the same degree as we do. In cases where the data protection level in a specific country doesn't match Swiss and European standards, we ensure the protection of your personal data aligns with those standards at all times. This is achieved through contractual agreements employing standard contractual clauses and compliance with the GDPR.

6. Data Security

We implement suitable technical and organizational security measures to safeguard your stored personal data against manipulation, loss (partial or complete), and unauthorized access by third parties. These security measures are continuously enhanced in line with technological advancements.

Please be aware that data transmission over the internet (e.g., via email communication) is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee absolute protection. Unfortunately, achieving absolute security is not technically feasible.

This information doesn't extend to third-party websites and their respective links provided on our Websites. The Foundation disclaims any responsibility and liability concerning these external sites.
