Portable Instant Mining Platform LLC, the principals of Miner.Farm/PiMP, respect the privacy of the online visitors and customers of its products and services and complies with applicable laws for the protection of your privacy, including, without limitation, the European Union General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the Swiss and EU Privacy Shield Frameworks.
Wherever we talk about Personal Data below, we mean any information that can either itself identify you as an individual (“Personally Identifying Information”) or that can be connected to you indirectly by linking it to Personally Identifying Information. Miner.Farm/PiMP also processes anonymous data, aggregated or not, to analyze and produce statistics related to the habits, usage patterns, and demographics of customers as a group or as individuals. Such anonymous data does not allow the identification of the customers to which it relates. PiMP/Miner.Farm may share anonymous data, aggregated or not, with third parties.
2. Why Miner.Farm/PiMP Collects and Processes Data
Miner.Farm/PiMP collects and processes Personal Data for the following reasons:
- a) where it is necessary for the performance of our agreement with you to provide a full-featured crypto currency mining and/or monitoring service and deliver associated content and services;
- b) where it is necessary for compliance with legal obligations that we are subject to (e.g. our obligations to keep certain information under tax laws);
- c) where it is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate and legal interests of Miner.Farm/PiMP or a third party (e.g. the interests of our other customers), except where such interests are overridden by your prevailing legitimate interests and rights; or
- d) where you have given consent to it.
These reasons for collecting and processing Personal Data determine and limit what Personal Data we collect and how we use it (section 3. below), how long we store it (section 4. below), who has access to it (section 5. below) and what rights and other control mechanisms are available to you as a user (section 6. below).
