Welcome to Affine Mainnet BETA (https://app.affinedefi.com), a website-hosted user interface (the "App") provided by Affine Labs and its affiliates ( "Affine" or "we", "our", or "us").
We also collect information that you provide to us voluntarily. In the provision of the Services, Affine processes, without limitation, the following categories of personal data:
The Services do not store, send, or receive crypto assets, as crypto assets exist only by virtue of the ownership record maintained on its supporting blockchain. Any transfer of crypto assets occurs within the supporting blockchain and not on the Services.
We use the personal data we collect to respond to create your account, provide the Services you request, including but not limited to facilitating your cryptocurrency transactions through wallets, enhance the Services, perform our contractual obligations, provide updates and other important information related to your activity on and with the Services, inform you of new services or changes in Services, to fulfill legal obligations we have to governmental authorities or other third parties, and for other legitimate business purposes.
Affine may share information with internal personnel and our affiliates located in different geographic locations in order to perform our Services. We may also share your personal data with third parties (within or outside your country of residence) who perform services on our behalf, including without limitation our blockchain service provider, payment processors, technology providers and professional advisors.
Transactions are completed via third party non-custodial wallets which are connected to the blockchain. Public blockchains provide transparency into transactions and Affine is not responsible for preventing or managing information broadcasted on a blockchain.
Affine may disclose any information we have about you (including your identity) if we determine that such disclosure is necessary in connection with any investigation or complaint regarding your use of the Services, or to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) Affine’s rights or property, or the rights or property of visitors to or users of the Services. Affine reserves the right at all times to disclose any information that Affine deems necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request. Affine also may disclose your information when Affine determines that applicable law requires or permits such disclosure, including exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection purposes.
We may share your data with a third party in the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer, liquidation or other disposition of all or any portion of our business, assets or stock with such third party.
We may share aggregated and de-identified information with third parties (within or outside your country of residence) for analytical, research or other similar purposes.
We rely on the following legal grounds to process your personal information:
Performance of a contract. We may need to collect and use your personal information to enter into a contract with you and to perform Services that you request.
Compliance with Legal Obligations. We may use your personal information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations.
We retain the personal data we collect for so long as reasonably necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the data was collected and to perform our contractual and legal obligations. Notwithstanding the generality of the foregoing, we store email addresses until the user requests to be unsubscribed or removes themselves through any self-service tools offered to the user. In addition, transactional data broadcasted to the blockchain is immutable and may not be removed or changed.
We take reasonable administrative, physical and technical precautions to protect your personal data and communications between us. This includes, when required or as we deem appropriate and feasible under the circumstances, encryption and written commitments from third parties that may have access to your data that they will protect the data with reasonable safeguards.
No Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free, however. We therefore cannot guarantee absolute security of your data, and we are not responsible for processes and networks that we do not control. Users assume the risk of security breaches and the consequences resulting from them. Please be careful in deciding what information you send to us via email or over the Internet.
You may opt out of receiving electronic marketing communications from us by clicking on the “unsubscribe” link on the communication or contacting us at email@example.com. Some non-marketing communications may not be subject to a general opt-out, such as communications about transactions, disclosures to comply with legal requirements, software updates and other support-related information. If you do not wish to receive any service-related emails from us, you have the option to deactivate your account.
Subject to local law, you may have additional rights under the laws of your jurisdiction regarding your personal data, such as the right to complain to your local data protection authority.
You may be able to disable Cookies through your browser settings, but if you delete or disable Cookies, you may experience interruptions or limited functionality in certain areas of the Services.
