10. Sharing Personal Information
Aside from disclosing personal information to those of our personnel who are authorized to process the information in order to provide the Tokenproof Service and who are committed to confidentiality, we disclose personal information only to the third parties as described below.
a. Third-Party Service Providers
We share personal information of all Users with third-party vendors, consultants, agents, contractors, and service providers that provide services to us that help us in the operation, provision, administration and management of the Tokenproof Service and to otherwise operate our business (“Service Providers”). Depending on how you use the Tokenproof Service, the following categories of third parties collect data on our behalf or receive personal information:
- Hosting services providers;
- Analytics providers;
- Payment processing providers;
- Advertising and marketing providers;
- Providers of business operations and communication tools;
- Other third-party service providers that help us provide features and functions for the Tokenproof Service (e.g., customer support providers); and
- Professional service providers, such as auditors, lawyers, consultants, accountants and insurers.
For a list of all third-party service providers we use, please contact us. We require all third parties to respect the security of your personal information and to treat it in accordance with the law.
b. Disclosures Directed by Verifier Clients
We will share and disclose personal information of Authorized Users and End Users with the applicable Verifier Client and otherwise in accordance with the Verifier Client’s instructions, including any applicable terms in the Verifier Client Agreement, and in compliance with applicable law and legal process. If you are an Authorized User or End User, please contact the relevant Verifier Client to learn more about how your information may be used, shared and/or disclosed by us on their behalf.
c. Third Party Integrations
When End Users interact with and/or use third-party services, platforms, or other online tools that integrate with the Tokenproof App (collectively, “Third Party Integrations”) in connection with the Tokenproof Service, certain information may be exchanged between Tokenproof and the provider of the applicable Third Party Integration. For example, we integrate with certain Crypto wallet providers (which are deemed Third Party Integrations) to enable End Users to connect their Crypto wallet accounts with the Tokenproof App to verify ownership of an NFT or token held by such End User in its wallet. Information that is shared with us through Third Party Integration is used by us as described in this Privacy Notice. Note that the Third Party Integrations you choose to interact with and/or use are not our service providers. The applicable providers of Third Party Integrations may use personal information differently than we do and we do not control their use of your information. Please review the privacy notices for the Third Party Integrations.
d. Business Transfers
We may also share data with third parties to whom we choose to sell, transfer, or merge parts of our business or our assets. Alternatively, we may seek to acquire other businesses or merge with them. If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal information in the same way as set out in this Privacy Notice.
e. Affiliates and Subsidiaries
Personal information that we collect about you through the Tokenproof Service may be shared with the employees, contractors, and agents of Tokenproof and our affiliated and subsidiary entities (“Affiliates”) who are involved in providing or improving the Tokenproof Service that we offer to you. We obligate the employees, contractors and agents of Tokenproof and our Affiliates to ensure the security and confidentiality of your personal information and to act on that personal information only in a manner consistent with this Privacy Notice.
f. Legal Obligations and Security
Regulatory and Government Bodies – Compliance with Law
We may disclose User personal information to regulatory agencies and official government bodies, as required to comply with or satisfy any laws, rules, or regulations applicable to Tokenproof.
Required Disclosures – Responding to Legal Orders
If we are required to disclose personal information by law, such as pursuant to a subpoena, warrant or other judicial or administrative order, our policy is to respond to requests that are properly issued by law enforcement within the United States. Under such circumstances, unless prohibited by applicable law, we will attempt to provide you with prior notice that a request for your personal information has been made in order to give you an opportunity to object to the disclosure. We will attempt to provide this notice by email, if you have given us an email address. However, government requests may include a court-granted non-disclosure order, which prohibits us from giving notice to the affected individual. In cases where we receive a non-disclosure order, we will notify you when it has expired or once we are authorized to do so.
If you are an Authorized User or End User, please consult with the relevant Verifier Client to learn more about how they respond to requests for information pursuant to legal orders.
Exigent Circumstances & Enforcement/Protection of Our Rights
User information, including the contents of all online communications in the Tokenproof Service and between you and Tokenproof may be accessed and monitored as needed to provide the Tokenproof Service and may be disclosed to law enforcement, regulatory agencies, official government bodies, and other third parties, as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate:
- To enforce our rights under our Verifier Client Agreements, Tokenproof App Terms of Service, and/or any other terms and conditions applicable to the use of the Tokenproof Service;
- In connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy or other unlawful activity or activity that may expose us or our Affiliates, partners and/or agents to legal liability; and/or
- If we receive information that provides us with a good faith belief that there is an exigent emergency involving the danger of death or serious physical injury to a person.
g. With Your Consent
There may be situations where you are asked to consent to share personal information with third parties for additional reasons not included in this Privacy Notice. In such event, we will only share such personal information if we have received your prior consent and only for the purposes as listed in the request to share such information.
