We collect personal data and anonymous data, as described below.
Information you provide to us.
- We may collect personal data from you, such as your first and last name, e-mail and mailing addresses, your PayPal account and information PayPal shares with us, information social media logins (e.g. google, Facebook) share with us and your password you enter to use b- chains service and when you create an account (“Account”).

- Our service lets you store preferences like how your content is displayed, your location, safe search settings, notification settings, and favourites. We may associate these choices with your ID, browser or mobile device.
- When connecting to our services via a service provider that uniquely identifies your mobile device, we may receive this identification and use it to offer extended services and/or functionality.
- Certain services, such as two-factor authentication, may require our collection of your phone number. We may associate that phone number to your mobile device identification information.
- If you provide us feedback or contact us via e-mail, we will collect your name and e-mail address, as well as any other content included in the e-mail, in order to send you a reply and to serve you with our service.
- We also collect other types of personal data that you provide to us voluntarily, such as your operating system and version, product registration number, PayPal account details, and other requested information, if you contact us via e-mail regarding support for the services.
- We may also collect personal data at other points in our service that state that personal data is being collected.
- As you navigate through and interact with our service, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns, including:
- Information Collected by our servers hosted by AWS and other service providers. To make our service more useful to you, our servers collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, internet protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, PayPal info, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.
We gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyse trends, administer the service, track users’ movements around the service, gather demographic information about our user base, and better tailor our services to your needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the service, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests.
Additionally, we might use “pixel tags” (clear gifs, web beacons or web bugs). Pixel tags are tiny graphic images with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, that are used to track online movements of web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixel tags are embedded invisibly in web pages. Pixel tags also allow us to send e-mail messages in a format users can read, and they tell us whether e-mails have been opened to ensure that we are sending only messages that are of interest to our users. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to a user.
How we respond to “do not track” signals. We do not currently respond to “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that might enable users to opt out of tracking on our site.
Information collected from third party companies. We may receive personal and/or anonymous data about you from companies that provide our services by way of a co-branded or private-labelled website or companies that offer their products and/or services on our service. These third- party companies may supply us with personal data. We may add this to the information we have already collected from you via our service in order to improve it. We do not collect personal data automatically, but we may tie the information that we collect automatically to personal data about you that we collect from other sources or that you provide to us.
