The Information We Collect and/or Receive
In the course of operating the Website and/or interacting with you, Validators will collect (and/or receive) the following types of information. You authorize us to collect and/or receive such information.
When using our Services, you may be requested to provide us with certain personal information about yourself, such as your name, e-mail address, or phone number. All information we collect and/or receive under this section is collectively called “Personal Information.”
We do not collect any Personal Information from Visitors when they use the Website, unless they provide such information voluntarily.
When delegating digital tokens to us, you will need to provide us with certain information related to the digital wallet in which you maintain the digital tokens being delegated (“Wallet ID”). We will only use your Wallet ID in order to provide our Services to you and not share your Wallet ID with any third parties other than for such purposes.
In addition to the Personal Information and your Wallet ID, we may collect or receive additional information (collectively, the “Other Information”). Such Other Information may include:
a. From Your Activity. In an ongoing effort to improve the Website and the Services, we automatically collect certain information, including, without limitation:
IP addresses, which may consist of a static or dynamic IP address and will sometimes point to a specific identifiable computer or device; browser type and language; referring and exit pages and URLs; date and time; amount of time spent on particular pages; what sections of the Website Visitors visit; and similar data; Information about your device, including the type of device; universally unique ID (“UUID”); advertising identifier (“IDFA”); MAC address; operating system and version (e.g., iOS, Android or Windows); carrier and country location; hardware and processor information (e.g., storage, chip speed, camera resolution, NFC enabled); network type (WiFi, 3G, 4G, LTE); and similar data; and Activity and usage information, including pages viewed, preferences, session lengths, and similar data.
b. From Cookies. We collect information using “cookie” technology. Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s or mobile device’s hard drive so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to help us collect Other Information and to enhance your experience using the Website. If you do not want us to place a cookie on your hard drive, you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer or mobile device. Please consult your Internet browser’s documentation for information on how to do this and how to delete persistent cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from us, the Website may not function properly.

The Information Collected by or Through Third-Party Advertising Companies
Accessing and Modifying Information and Communication Preferences
You may manage your receipt of marketing and non-transactional communications by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link located on the bottom of any Validators marketing e-mail. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to process such requests in a timely manner. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our subscription databases. Users cannot opt out of receiving transactional e-mails related to their transactions with Validators.
How We Use and Share the Information
You authorize us to use your Personal Information, Wallet ID, and Other Information (collectively, the “Information”) that you provide us in order to provide and improve the Website and Services; to solicit your feedback; and to inform you about our products and services and those of our partners.
You also authorize us to use and/or share Information as described below.
We may, from time to time, share and/or license Information to other companies who may provide you information about the products and services they or their partners offer. However, to the extent required by law, you will be given the opportunity to opt-out of such sharing.
We will access, use, and share the Information as required to fulfill our contractual obligations to you or subsequent requests for Services and/or support by you.
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include providing technical assistance, customer service, and marketing assistance. These other companies will have access to the Information only as necessary to perform their functions and to the extent permitted by law.
In an ongoing effort to better understand our Visitors, Users, Website, and the products and services of Validators and our promotional partners, we may analyze certain Information in anonymized and aggregate form in order to operate, maintain, manage, and improve the Website and/or such products and services. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. We may share and/or license this aggregate data to our affiliates, agents, business and promotional partners, and other third parties. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Website and these products and services to current and prospective business partners and investors and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
We may share some or all of your Information with any of our parent companies, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control with us.
As we develop our businesses, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, sale of assets, dissolution, or similar event, the Information may be part of the transferred assets.
To the extent permitted by law, we may also disclose the Information: (i) when required by law, court order, or other government or law enforcement authority or regulatory agency; or (ii) whenever we believe that disclosing such Information is necessary or advisable, for example, to protect the rights, property, or safety of Validators or others.
How We Protect the Information
We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the Information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Website may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
