Which Personal Data we process

We make it clear that these profiles when containing images and text are meant for professional persons or companies and not for natural persons.
If you are a natural person, you need to be aware that certain information is being stored on systems that are outside of our reach such as distributed file storage (e.g. IPFS).
If you create a public profile we and our data processors collect the following data:

● Contact details: email;
● Technical information of your device which you use for orders and communication (cell phone, tablet, notebook, personal computer, etc. (e.g. IP address),
We involve the following data processors in this process:

Data processor Google:

Google stores your personal data in EU/EEA and the USA, where the level of data protection is lower than in the EU/EEA.

For further information, please see Google’s Privacy Policy:

Data processor L14 test network:
If you create a public profile, you are storing a self chosen username in a smart contract on the L14 test network, as well as the hashes to JSON documents that contain links to profile images and profile descriptions. The smart contract itself dos not contain this information. The JSON documents are stored on the distributed file storage IPFS. The L14 is a centralized test network and persistence of data long term can not be guaranteed, as we keep the rights to reset or alter the L14 test network. The control of the smart contract lies with the private key that is sent to your email.

Data processor IPFS:
JSON documents and images and other files stored on IPFS that are stored on the distributed file storage that is not controllable by us. The persistence of the data stored on IPFS depends on the frequency they are requested. Certain files will be "forgotten" by the system if not frequently requested. If you wish to remove personal data from the public profile you can setting it to a different document hash (change the data). This will allow the IPFS network to forget that file, if unpinned within the system.
