Where do we store personal information?
It is important to note that some or all of your Personal Information provided to third party service providers may be held in third countries which are considered as not providing the same level of data protection as the EU country in which you provided your Personal Information. Without prejudice to your rights under GDPR, you acknowledge and understand that your Personal Information will be subject to the applicable laws of each such jurisdiction, which may not provide for the same level of data protection as your country of residence. If you have questions about our policies and practices with respect to service providers outside your jurisdiction, including the collection, use, disclosure or storage of such Personal Information by our service providers worldwide, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What third parties do we work with?
In order to participate in an Offering, you will have to provide Personal Information to pass Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) verifications as required by law. Tokeny provides this data to third-party companies designated by the Digital Asset Issuer as their agent(s) to verify all KYC/AML information and/or more broadly to administer the Digital Asset during its existence. When you participate in a company’s Offering your Personal Information including personal data is shared with the offering company or its designated agent. Be aware that when you participate in an Offering, the Offering company may use a different KYC/AML service than the service Tokeny uses. Tokeny also provides your anonymized data to the company Analytics Solutions in order to do analytics to better operate our company for our users.
When you subscribe to purchase tokens from an Offering that uses our platform, you will be asked to provide financial data and information to verify your status and successfully make financial transactions. Depending on how you wish to purchase tokens you may be required to provide financial data, such as your bank routing number and bank account number, to enable the offering company to utilize your bank account to originate funds transfers and make subsequent investment transfers to you if necessary.

How do we protect the confidentiality and security of personal information?
We will provide an adequate level of protection for the Personal Information and make sure that appropriate technical and organizational security measures are in place to protect the Personal Information against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss or alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, and against all other unlawful forms of processing. We have a data protection audit and recovery system in place. We track and maintain strict records for all of our data processing activities. We place your account information on the secure portion of our Site, using firewalls and other security technology to protect our network and systems from external attacks, and we require you to enter a unique and confirmed email and password to access your account information online. Our servers are enabled with Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to prevent unauthorized parties from viewing the Personal Information that you provide or access during a secure session (look for the padlock icon on your browser). In addition, if you access information online, we use digital certificate services to authenticate that you are transacting with our Site and not the Site of an impostor.
However, to the extent that the internet is not completely secure, we cannot guarantee that any of your Personal Information stored or sent to us will be completely safe. We encourage you to use caution when using the internet to access our Site.
When you provide personal data to our Site you retain the right to access the personal data that we maintain of you. If you request such access, we will provide you with all the information as required by law on the purposes of the processing, categories of data processed, categories of recipients, data retention term, and so on.
You may also obtain a copy of any personal data that we hold of you in our records in a format compatible and structured in order to allow you to exercise your right to data portability, when the processing is based on your consent or on the performance of an agreement between you and Tokeny.
You may also request that we correct, amend, erase, any personal data which is incomplete, out of date or inaccurate.
You can request deletion of your personal data if (i) your personal data is no longer necessary for the purpose of the data processing, (ii) you have withdrawn your consent on the data processing based exclusively on such consent, (iii) you objected to the data processing, (iv) the personal data is unlawful, (v) the personal data must be erased to comply with a legal obligation applicable to Tokeny.
You can request the restriction of the processing, (i) in the event the accuracy of your personal data is contested to allow Tokeny to check such accuracy, (ii) if you wish to restrict your personal data rather than deleting it despite the fact that the processing is unlawful, (iii) if you wish Tokeny to keep your personal data because you need it for your defence in the context of legal claims, (iv) if you have objected to the processing but Tokeny conducts verification to check whether it has legitimate grounds for such processing which may override your own rights.
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects on you or significantly affects you, except if you explicitly consent to it or if it is necessary to enter into or perform a contract between you and us.
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority. In Luxembourg the competent authority is the National Commission for Data Protection (CNPD).
When your personal data processing is based on your consent, you may withdraw it at any moment, without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on your consent before withdrawal.
When your personal data is processed to pursue our legitimate interests, you may object to such processing, if our legitimate interest may be overridden by your interests and freedom.
To exercise your rights, you should contact us at email@example.com. We will respond to your requests without undue delay and at the latest within 1 month.
We will not retain data longer than is reasonably considered necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, processed or as required by applicable laws or regulations. When a user makes a request to have their account deleted and all data deleted, all personal Data collected through the platform will be deleted, as permitted by applicable law.
Controlling your data
We want to make it clear to our users that you have control of your data. If you wish to have your personal data edited, deleted, or audited please contact us anytime at firstname.lastname@example.org and our data collection officers will be able to accommodate your requests as permitted by applicable law.
No users under 18 years of age
Our Site is not targeted to persons under the age of 18 and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from persons under the age of 18. Any user that attempts to submit information revealing their age to be under 18 will be blocked and their information deleted.
