Purpose, Scope and Other Definitions

This Policy is meant for use by visitors of CRYPTOsauce.

CRYPTOsauce is a news website that focuses on giving its Visitors with simple, trustworthy news reporting on the blockchain and cryptocurrency industry.

The Company has established this Privacy Policy in accordance with CCPA, GDPR and their associated Guidelines.

This policy aims to provide Company’s Visitors with information on what type of information the Company collects, how it is used and the circumstances in which it could be shared with third parties.

Throughout this privacy statement, Visitor’s data may be called “personal data,” “personal information,” “private information,” or “PII.” The Company may also sometimes collectively refer to handling, collecting, protecting and storing Visitor’s personal data or any such action as “processing” of such personal data.

Collection of personal data

The Company shall collect information necessary for the provision and improvement of services. 

As a Visitor, any individual has the right to request how the Company is collecting private information by contacting CRYPTOsauce here.

Subscribe to newsletter

Visitors will have the option to subscribe to the regular newsletter provided by the Company by providing their email addresses when following the subscribe option. For this purpose, the Visitor consents to receipt of such email by providing his/ her email address directly to the Company via the option available on the website of the News portal.

Purposes of safeguarding legitimate interests

The Company processes personal data to safeguard legitimate interests pursued by CRYPTOsauce or by a third party. A legitimate interest is when the Company has a business, commercial or legal reason to use the Visitor’s information. Even then, it must not unfairly go against what is right and best for the Visitor. 

Examples of such processing activities include:

  • initiating court proceedings and preparing our defence in litigation procedures; 
  • measures and processes we undertake to provide the Company’s IT and system security, preventing potential crime, asset security, admittance controls and anti-trespassing measures; 
  • measures to manage business and further develop the Company’s products and services; 
  • the transfer, assignment (whether outright or as security for obligations) and/or sale to one or more persons and/or charge and/or encumbrance over, any or all of the Company’s benefits, rights, title or interest under any agreement between the Visitor and the Company.

Marketing Purposes

The Company may use Visitor data, such as location or transaction history to deliver any news, analysis, research, reports, campaigns or training opportunities that may interest the Visitor, to their registered email address if it has been provided to the Company. 

Visitors always have the right to change this option if they no longer wish to receive such information and may unsubscribe at any time.

Controlling and processing Visitor’s personal data

CRYPTOsauce and any agents that it engages for the purpose of collecting, storing or processing personal data and any third parties acting on the Company’s behalf may collect, process and store personal data provided by the Visitor. 

For the purpose of processing and storage of personal data provided by the Visitor in any jurisdiction within the United States or outside of the United States, the Company hereby confirms that this will be done in accordance with all applicable laws.

Authorised Processor

The company may also use authorised external processors for Visitor data processing based on concluded service agreements, which are governed by instructions from the Company for the protection of Visitor-related data. The agreements are important so that both parties understand their responsibilities and liabilities. 

Such providers will provide various services as agreed upon with the Company.  

When the Company is required or permitted to disclose information without consent, the Company will not disclose more information than necessary to fulfil the disclosure purpose.

How the Company treats Visitor’s personal data for marketing activities

The Company may process Visitor’s personal data to inform Visitors about products, services or offers that may be of interest to them. The Company studies all such information to form a view of what is needed or what may be of interest to the Visitors. 

In some cases, profiling may be used. Profiling is a process where Visitor’s data is automatically processed with the aim of evaluating certain personal aspects and further providing the Visitor with targeted marketing information on products. 

Visitors have the right to object at any time to the processing of Visitor’s personal data for marketing purposes or unsubscribe from receiving marketing-related emails from the Company, by contacting the Company’s Visitor support department at any time by filling out a request form at cryptosauce.news/contact.

Period of keeping Visitor’s personal information

The Company will keep Visitor’s personal data for five years to meet legal requirements. In some cases, this period may be extended.

When the Company no longer needs to keep Visitor’s personal data, it will securely delete or destroy it.

Visitor’s right to erasure;

The right to erasure does not provide an absolute ‘right to be forgotten’. Individuals have a right to have personal data erased and to prevent processing in specific circumstances:

  • where the personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purpose for which it was originally collected/processed;
  • when the individual withdraws consent;
  • when the individual objects to the processing and there is no overriding legitimate interest to continue the processing;
  • when the personal data was unlawfully processed (i.e. otherwise in breach of the GDPR);
  • when the personal data has to be erased in order to comply with a legal obligation;
  • when the personal data is processed in connection with the offer of information society services to a child.

There are some specific circumstances where the right to erasure does not apply and the Company can refuse to execute the request.

When can the Company refuse to comply with a request for erasure?

CRYPTOsauce can refuse to comply with a request for erasure where the personal data is processed for the following reasons:

  • to comply with a legal obligation for the performance of a public interest task or exercise of official authority;
  • the exercise or defence of legal claims.

Geographical area of processing

As a general rule, Visitor data is processed within the United States (USA), but in some cases it is transferred to and processed in countries outside the USA.

The transfer and processing of Visitor data outside the USA can take place, provided there are appropriate safeguards in place and the actions are made based on a legal basis only.

Upon request, the Visitor may receive further details on Visitor data transfers to countries outside the USA.

Changes to this privacy statement

The Company reserves the right to modify or amend this Privacy Statement unilaterally, without notice and at any time in accordance with this provision. 

If any changes are made to this privacy statement, the Company shall publish an updated Privacy Policy on the News site. The revision date shown at the end of this page will also be amended.
