Gnosis Pay Privacy and Cookies Policy
Updated over a week ago

Updated 11 August 2023

We are delighted that you have chosen to visit our website. We take our data protection responsibilities with the utmost seriousness, and we have designed our website for navigation and use without having to provide Personal Data.

This Policy sets out what Personal Data we collect, how we process it, and how long we retain it. This Policy applies to all processing activities where we act as a data controller. In this policy, "we", "us" and "our" refer to Gnosis Pay Co Ltd, a company incorporated in England and Wales with its registered address at 12 New Fetter Lane, London, United Kingdom, EC4A 1JP. We operate the “gnosispay.com” website and the GnosisPay mobile application (“Services”). For more information about us, see the Contact Us section of this policy.

In this Policy, “personal data” means any information relating to you as an identified or identifiable natural person (“Data Subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to your physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

In this Policy, “processing” means any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data (as defined in this Privacy Policy) or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.

1. Your Information and the blockchain

Blockchain technology, also known as distributed ledger technology (or simply ‘DLT’), is at the core of our business. Blockchains are decentralized and made up of digitally recorded data in a chain of packages called ‘blocks’. The manner in which these blocks are linked is chronological, meaning that the data is very difficult to alter once recorded. Since the ledger may be distributed all over the world (across several ‘nodes’ which usually replicate the ledger) this means there is no single person making decisions or otherwise administering the system (such as an operator of a cloud computing system), and that there is no centralized place where it is located either.

Blockchain records are ‘immutable’ by design, meaning they cannot be changed or deleted. Immutability can impact users’ ability to exercise rights such as rights to erasure (‘right to be forgotten’) or to object or restrict processing of personal data. Data on the blockchain cannot be erased and cannot be changed. Although smart contracts may be used to revoke certain access rights, and some content may be made invisible to others, it is not deleted.

In certain circumstances, in order to comply with our contractual obligations to you (such as delivery of tokens), it will be necessary to write certain personal data, such as your Ethereum or other cryptocurrency wallet address, onto the blockchain; this is done through a smart contract and requires you to execute such transactions using your wallet’s private key.

In most cases, the ultimate decisions to (i) transact on the blockchain using your Ethereum or other cryptocurrency wallet address, as well as (ii) share the public key relating to your Ethereum or other cryptocurrency wallet address with anyone (including us) rests with you.
