Privacy policy

By registering as member and accepting the Terms of Service, you agree to the contents of the following Privacy Policy

1.Introduction.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of “Personal Information” (information that is identifiable to a particular person) that is collected (directly or through service providers) in connection with the Purchase and Sale of Bitcoins and all other services (collectively the “Services”) offered through the website at www.satoshicounter.com (the “Site”) and how that Personal Information is used, shared and protected. Some of this information is required by Canadian federal or other law, or is required by third-party contractors to process transactions between Satoshi Counter Members and Satoshi Counter. In this Policy, “Satoshi Counter” or “we” or “us” refers to the operator applicable to you.

2.Eligibility.

The Site and the Services are offered to citizens of countries on which Canada has not imposed sanctions or related measures, as well as citizens of the State of New York, who can form legally binding contracts under applicable law. Without limiting the foregoing, the Site and Services are not offered to minors. Other restrictions and eligibility requirements for the Services apply as described in the Terms of Use or other disclosures on the Site. We do not knowingly collect any Personal Information from or about individuals under 18 years of age. Please do not submit such information to us, and as a parent or legal guardian, please do not allow your children to submit personal information without your permission. By using the Site and/or the Services, you represent that you meet these requirements and that you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

3.Acceptance of Privacy Policy

Upon registration as members of Satoshi Counter, you accept the Terms of Service and Privacy Policy. We assume all members have read the Policy Policy and have consented to its contents at time of registration.

4.Opt-out

Because the collection of your Personal Information is inherently necessary for the processing of transactions, you cannot opt out of any element of this privacy policy.

5.Cookies, Browser Information and Related Issues.

a. When you visit the Site, we may receive certain standard information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as the originating IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses, and other such information. This data may be used, among other uses, to improve the operation of the Site and to improve the security of the Site and Services by assisting in “authenticating” who you are, when you access the Site or Services, particularly if you register for a Service and are issued or create a username and password.

b. We may also receive additional information about your visit to the Site, including the pages you view, the links you click and other actions you take in connection with the Site and the Services. This data may be used, among other uses, to improve and enhance the operation of the Site and the Services.

c. Like most websites, the Site also uses “cookies,” which are small data files placed on your computer or other device by the web server when you visit the Site. Most such cookies are “session” cookies that are only used for a specific period during which you are on the Site, but a few are “persistent” cookies that stay on your hard drive and are read by the web server when you return to the Site (unless you erase them). Cookies cannot and will not be used to deliver or run programs on your computer. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can modify your browser settings to decline cookies if you prefer. However, if you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to use the Services.

d. Web beacons: Our Site contains electronic images known as Web beacons (sometimes called single-pixel gifs) and are used along with cookies to compile aggregated statistics to analyze how our Site is used and may be used in some of our emails to let us know which emails and links have been opened by recipients. This allows us to gauge the effectiveness of our customer communications and marketing campaigns.

e. Widgets: Our Site may include social media features, such as the Facebook Like button and widgets, such as the “Share This” button or interactive mini-programs that run on our Site. These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our Site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. Social media features and widgets are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.

f. Our tracking utility company uses cookies to improve the operation of the Site. The use of cookies by our tracking utility company is not covered by our Privacy Policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies.

g. To ensure that your account is safe and that nobody is trying to defraud you or Satoshi Counter from your account, we collect your device fingerprint.

Exceptions: Cash transactions under $3000 (per 24h period) with Satoshi Counter, where Satoshi Counter deems it unnecessary, may not require you to provide any additional information other than information required to register as a Satoshi Counter member (full name, telephone, and email address). In this case, your information is not shared with any third-party.


9. How We May Use Personal Information About You.

We use Personal Information about you only as permitted by law, including but not limited to the following purposes:

10. How We Protect Personal Information About You.

To protect Personal Information about you from unauthorized access and use, we maintain physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards, including but not limited to security measures that comply with applicable federal and state laws. We also require our service providers and business partners to whom we disclose the information to do the same. When you enter sensitive information (such as a credit card number) on our order forms, we encrypt the transmission of that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

11. Amendments.

We may amend this policy at any time by posting a revised version on the Site. The revised version will be effective immediately at the time it is posted unless a delayed effective date is expressly stated therein. You may (in our discretion) also be provided with an email notification of such amendments. If we make any change in how we use your Personal Information we will notify you by email or by means of a notice on this Site prior to the change becoming effective. You may (in our discretion) be required to affirmatively acknowledge or accept the revised Privacy Policy in order to continue using the Services.
