Last Updated on March 14, 2021
I. Personally-Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

BlockTrans Syndicate (referred to herein as “Block Transfer”) may collect two different types of information, Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”). PII that we collect is information that identifies you as an individual – and includes your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, credit card information, billing address and shipping information. Non-PII is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses, user behavior data from web interaction metrics tools and other information that does not reveal your specific identity. PII and Non-PII may be collected anytime you access or use a Block Transfer website. PII and Non-PII may also be collected by Block Transfer during in-person discussions, telephone conversations, and electronic or other written communications. Block Transfer also collects information via cookies; blocking cookies may render you unable to access certain Block Transfer products, services, or websites.

Block Transfer uses PII to respond to your inquiries, provide you with services you have requested, keep you informed of services Block Transfer thinks may be of interest to you, and otherwise personalize your experience with Block Transfer, and other reasons. Block Transfer does not sell or lease PII about you to others, and may in some cases be liable for so doing under the Privacy Shield Framework outlined below. Block Transfer shares your PII with affiliates as described in the Client Terms available at https://www.blocktransfer.io/terms. Third parties contracting with Block Transfer to provide services to you, including financial institutions, API integrators you have chosen, and other third party software services that you have chosen to assist you with your sales funnels. Block Transfer employees who design our databases and software, and those employees who provide you with customer service, along with our customer service software partners, also have access to PII as part of their job in providing services to You. Block Transfer may also share PII when required by law, or when you have expressly requested Block Transfer to do so. Block Transfer reserves the right to disclose and use your PII if Block Transfer believes it is necessary to: (a) respond to legal process, e.g., a subpoena; (b) respond to a law enforcement agency’s request; (c) enforce the Terms; or (d) protect the rights, privacy, safety, property, or operations of Block Transfer or third parties. Because Non-PII does not personally identify You, Block Transfer reserves the right to use and disclose to third parties Non-PII for any purpose.

Block Transfer maintains reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to protect PII from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Block Transfer enforces its Privacy Policy via self-assessment.

Block Transfer reserves the right to change this privacy notice, which changes will become effective upon posting of the revised notice on https://www.blocktrans.io/privacy, or upon emailing of the changes to You at the email address You provided to Block Transfer, or as required by law.
