We use a third party platform host, who hosts the forms on our site, they do not have any access to the personal information that you submit on our website.


Where we store your personal data

The data that we collect will be stored on the cloud with the hosting infrastructure based in the European Economic Area ("EEA") and European Union ("EU").

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Please note that by visiting and using the Website, participating in the Sale and giving us your personal data, you consent to your personal data being collected, used, processed, disclosed and stored by us, only as described in the Terms and this Privacy Policy.


Safeguarding personal data

The communication internally between our servers (e.g. between application server and database) is handled via secure socket layer (“SSL”) to provide AE-256 encryption and all information between our servers and your browser is handled via SSL (up to 256-bit encryption, depending upon your browser), providing an industry-standard level of protection for data in-transit.

You should always make sure that your browser can validate the Website’s certificate.

All encrypted data is signed using a message authentication code (MAC) so that the underlying value cannot be modified once encrypted.

We also implement an advanced security method based on dynamic data and encoded session identifications in a secure server environment using preventive, detective and corrective technology and processes to safeguard information from attackers. These safeguards help prevent unauthorized access, maintain data accuracy, and ensure the appropriate use of data.

The security of your personal information is important to us. When you enter sensitive information in our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using transport layer security (TLS) technology. We also encrypt any information entered within the platform once users log into their accounts. If you have any questions about security on our Website, you can contact us at hello@eqwity.io.

Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of the Website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential.

Your passwords are stored on our servers in encrypted form using a one-way hashing algorithm.

Please be reminded that you must protect any passwords or other credentials associated with your account for the participation in the Sale and take full responsibility for any use of the account under your password. We ask you not to share your password with anyone. 

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to the Website, although we will do our best to protect your personal data. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

In the case of a personal data breach, we shall without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than 72 hours after having become aware of it, notify the personal data breach to the supervisory authority competent in accordance with Article 55, of the General Data Protection Regulation of the European Union unless the personal data breach is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons. In such case we will also notify you without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than 72 hours after having become aware of the breach and suggest any actions to be taken to secure your personal information (change your username and password, etc.).


Your rights and access to information

You may ask us not to process your personal data for a particular purpose, or to access such information, by contacting us at hello@eqwity.io. Please note, however, that you shall remain liable for any fees or costs incurred at the time of the withdrawal of your consent to process your personal data. Furthermore, such request may result in you being unable further participate in the Sale.
