At CloudHashing we are committed to safeguarding and preserving the privacy of our visitors.
Scope of this Policy
The Service is a Bitcoin mining service. The individual or organisation that registers for Our Service will be referred to as the “Subscriber” or “you”.
Who processes Personal Information?
Where Personal Information is collected from you in connection with your use of the Service or where CloudHashing obtains your consent to the use of your Personal Information, CloudHashing is responsible for the processing and storing of such Personal Information.
Personal Information collected in connection with the distribution of products, services and software
In order to provide the Service, CloudHashing requires Subscribers to provide minimal details namely a username and email address when they register to the Service. CloudHashing uses Personal Information provided by Subscribers for the purpose of communicating with the Subscriber and administering, delivering and improving the Service.
CloudHashing may also use such data (insofar as permitted under applicable law) to communicate with you in relation to other products or services offered by CloudHashing or its partners. In accordance with the requirements of applicable law, CloudHashing may request you to confirm your consent for such communications ('opt-in') or to indicate that you would not like to receive such communications, or that such communication should be discontinued ('opt-out').
Where you give an opt-out notice, CloudHashing will not use your Personal Information for direct marketing purposes (but this shall not prevent use of the Personal Information in relation to the administration of the Service, or to provide technical and other support to you in relation to the Service).
Where an opt-in is required by applicable law as a pre-requisite for sending direct marketing communications, CloudHashing will not use your Personal Information for direct marketing purposes unless you provide the requisite opt-in.
Other forms in which Personal Information may be used
There may be limited circumstances in which CloudHashing may be required to disclose Personal Information to unrelated third parties:
- There may be times when Personal Information must be disclosed in response to the following: (1) where necessary to satisfy a legitimate government request or direction or in response to a court order including for law enforcement, investigation and national security purposes or in connection with legal proceedings; (2) in response to a third-party subpoena, if on legal advice such response is required; or (3) if necessary to defend CloudHashing, or its partners or other Subscribers (for example, in a lawsuit).
- If you request a specific service or product, and if that product or service is administered by a third party who is working for or in partnership with CloudHashing, your Personal Information may be shared with the third party in order to respond to the request. The third party in question may also transmit back to CloudHashing any new information obtained from you or about you in connection with providing the service or product.
CloudHashing will fully co-operate with law enforcement, investigation and security agencies and regulators to identify anyone who uses its service or software for illegal activities. CloudHashing reserves the right to report to law enforcement, investigation and security agencies and to regulators any activities that are believed to be unlawful.
Other third parties that may have access to Personal Information
Storage, security and retention of Personal Information
Personal Information that CloudHashing collects is stored on its servers (which may be located outside the EEA). We implement and maintain adequate security measures to protect such information stored on our servers and seek to comply with all local rules in respect of storage of data. CloudHashing also strives to collect no more Personal Information from Subscribers than is required for the purpose for which it is collected. This, in turn, helps reduce the total risk of harm should data loss or a breach in security occur.
Unfortunately the sending of information via the internet is not totally secure and on occasion such information can be intercepted. Whilst we shall use reasonable efforts to protect the security of Personal Information about you, we cannot guarantee the security of data that you choose to send us electronically. Sending such information is entirely at your own risk.
Notification in the event of breach
In the unlikely event of a breach in the security of Personal Information, CloudHashing may decide to notify any Subscriber who is actually or potentially affected. CloudHashing may elect to give notice via in-product messaging systems or via email (if such data is available to CloudHashing). Notice of data breach may also be given via publication on company website or on the product portals. Subject to applicable legal and regulatory requirements, CloudHashing reserves the right to decide whether or not to give notice of a data breach to Subscribers, and which Subscribers should be notified, and reserves the right to delay notification if it is asked to do so by law enforcement or other authorities, or if CloudHashing believes that giving notice will increase the risk of harm to its Subscribers.
CloudHashing does not collect "sensitive" Personal Information such as sexual preference, religion, political views, or health. CloudHashing does not wish to receive any such data and will not request it.
Data on children
Persons under the age of 18 should not transfer personal information to us unless they have the consent of their parent(s) or guardian(s). We do not knowingly collect, nor do we want to receive, personal information about individuals who are under 16 years of age.
