de.Social Privacy Policy

In this Privacy Policy, we explain how de.Social strives to only request data that’s useful and required, not to hold that data longer than necessary, and to give you as much control as possible over your data.

Your privacy

If you’re a user of any de.Social product or service, or just visiting our website, this Privacy Policy applies to you.

You can exchange content and data with other users through the de.Social app. In these situations, de.Social acts as the data processor of information provided by you. This means we process these data strictly on your behalf, as a de.Social app user, and we will never process the data for our own purposes.

How and why we use your data

Under relevant privacy legislation, de.Social can only use your data for certain reasons and where we have a legal basis to do so. Beyond the law, it’s our policy to store and process only those data that are essential to provide you with the best possible service. de.Social won’t process or store any data that we don’t need, and we only store personal data for the least amount of time needed for these purposes.

Ethereum is a public blockchain

Ethereum is the community-run technology powering the cryptocurrency ether (ETH) and thousands of decentralized applications (DApps). The de.Social app provides a mobile portal and streamlined access to Ethereum’s ecosystem.

The Ethereum public network is accessible to anyone in the world with an internet connection. Anyone can read or create transactions on a public blockchain and validate the transactions being executed. Therefore, information you share on the Ethereum blockchain is public.

Data processed in connection with your Ethereum account like you ethereum Address, transaction history, tokens, and amounts to allow you to access details of your Ethereum account using the de.Social App. This is necessary for us to perform our contracts with you and you give consent by sharing information on a public blockchain.

Third party processors

de.Social won’t share your personal data with third parties.

We use the following external services and tools: Infura, Inc. (to collect and send your Ethereum data), Etherscan (to allow users to search the Ethereum blockchain for transactions, addresses, tokens, prices, and other activities), CryptoCompare (to obtain current fiat value), and services others use to host ERC721 content.

Cookies

No cookies are needed to use the de.Social app secure messaging feature and crypto wallet. So we don’t use them for those services. However, cookies are necessary for the technical operation of our website and Web3 browser (for DApps). When we have to use cookies, we choose cookies that don’t hold any user-specific information and are essential for the operation of the product or service.

This Privacy Policy might change

We may modify or replace any part of this Privacy Policy. Please check our website periodically for any changes. The new Privacy Policy will be effective immediately upon posting to our website, but if we change our Privacy Policy significantly, we will inform you through the de.Social app.
