We strongly believe that the need to protect our users’ data shouldn’t be forced upon us merely by the law.
More than the law, it is a matter of ethics for us.
Home of Crypto is a platform that lists the upcoming and the ongoing ICOs, blockchain development companies and ICO marketing companies. If you are listing your information or, if you are one of the users who would like to have a personalized experience on our website, then you will be creating an account.
To create your account you will be submitting your name, email address and a password that we will be saving on a secure database.
If you create a listing, for example, if you are an ICO owner or a blockchain development company or an ICO marketing company, you may like to display your contact information so that your prospective clients can contact you. So, you may also be submitting your phone number.
While creating your listings you may provide us, aside from your name, email address and mobile number, details like your job title, education, skills and experience and other relevant bits of information needed to make your listings meaningful.
If you decide to display your email and phone number openly on the listings page and if those contact details are misused by someone, Home of Crypto cannot be held responsible because the information is openly available. What we can commit is, if you decide to hide that information from your profile, it will be never shown on the website. Your private information will never be shared with a third party for the purpose of research or marketing.
So, basically, we have unregistered visitors and registered visitors. No data about unregistered visitors is ever captured. Data from registered visitors is stored in our database with the full knowledge of the visitor. When storing data in our database,
- We will protect your personal information and we will never share it with third-parties.
- Appropriate safeguards and security measures have been taken to ensure the safety of your private data.
Some quick words about GDPR
GDPR stands for “General Data Protection Regulation” and it is a set of legal guidelines intended to protect the data of all EU citizens. Although GDPR was officially adopted in 2016, it will come into effect on may 25, 2018. Non-compliance with GDPR can incur a fine of either € 20 million or 4% of your annual turnover, although, a fine of such degree will happen in extremely rare cases.
The basic ideas behind following GDPR are:
- Clearly defining and communicating to your users what is opting-in and what is consent.
- Clearly articulating how you are getting data from your customers, clients and visitors and how you plan to use the data.
Once you have gotten hold of the data, how you are protecting it to make sure that it does not fall in wrong hands.
At Home of Crypto we totally agree with the spirit of GDPR. We believe that our visitors and people who register on our website must have an uncompromising right to privacy and their confidential data must be protected at all cost. We do this on our website.
