WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED?
Depending on your use of the Service, we may collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you. Such information may include your name, username, e-mail address, public wallet address, crypto balances linked to your public wallet address, and NFTs owned or sold by you and linked to your public wallet address. Additionally, if you are an Influencer, we may collect your name, contact details, social media handles, publicly available social media and other content and information, and, if you promote the Service using one of our affiliate links, we will track the success of the campaign through engagement with such affiliate link. All references to personally identifiable information shall be deemed to include ‘personal data’ as defined and used in the European Data Protection Laws (to the extent applicable).
Non-Personally Identifiable Information
Non-personally identifiable information is information, any single item of which, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you, including non-identifiable demographic information, IP address, browser types, browser version, unique device identifiers, device types, requested URL, referring URL, browser language, the pages you view and the time spent on those pages, the date and time of your visit, domain names, and statistical data involving the use of the Service. Certain non-personally identifiable information may be considered a part of your personally identifiable information if it were combined with other identifiers in a way that enables you to be identified. However, the same pieces of information are considered non-personally identifiable information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-personally identifiable information (for example, your viewing preferences) in a way that would not enable you to be identified.
We will collect personally identifiable information that you submit to us. We may also receive your public wallet address (including crypto balances linked to your public wallet address and NFTs owned or sold by you and linked to your public wallet address) from our Multi-Chain Web3 Authorization Platform. And, if you are an Influencer, we may collect publicly available information about you (such as your name, contact details, social media handles, publicly available social media and other content and information).
Registering to Use the Service and in the Course of Using the Service.
You may be required to establish an account in order to take advantage of certain features of the Service. If so, if you wish to establish an account you will be required to provide us with information (including personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information) such as your public wallet address. In addition, we may obtain your personally identifiable information from you if you identify yourself to us by communicating with us including by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments. Also, we will have access to any personally identifiable information that you choose to share through the Service.
Cookies and Action Tags.
We may collect information passively using “cookies” and “action tags.”
“Cookies” are small text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device in order to identify your web browser and the activities of your computer on the Service and other websites. Cookies can be « persistent » or « session » cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your personal computer or mobile device when you go offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser.
We use both session and persistent cookies. Persistent cookies allow us to remember choices you make when you use the Site, such as remembering your login details or language preference. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-enter your preferences every time you use the Site. Session cookies are essential to provide you with the Service available through the Site and to enable you to use some of the Site’s features. Session cookies help to authenticate users and prevent fraudulent use of user accounts.
In addition to cookies that we may place on your computer or mobile device, cookies might also be placed on your computer or mobile device by third parties that we use to provide analytics-related services or to collect non-personally identifiable information in order to provide analytics-related services. In the course of providing analytics related services, such third-party analytics providers could place or recognize unique cookies on your browser.
Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the « Help » section of the toolbar. However, if you reject cookies, certain features or resources of the Service may not work properly or at all and you may experience some loss of convenience. In particular, without session cookies, the Service cannot be provided, and we only use session cookies to provide you with the Service.
For the avoidance of doubt, the Service uses third-party service platforms (including to help analyze how users use the Service). These third-party service platforms may place cookies on your computer or mobile device. If you would like to disable « third party » cookies, you may be able to turn them off by going to the third party’s website.
Here are links to the main third-party platforms we use:
« Action tags, » also known as web beacons or gif tags, are a web technology used to help track website usage information, such as how many times a specific page has been viewed. Action tags are invisible to you, and any portion of the Service, including e-mail sent on our behalf, may contain action tags.
By using cookies and action tags together, we can gain valuable information to improve the Service and measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. We may also combine information collected from cookies with information that you may provide, such as information provided in a form that you complete.
We also collect information through our Internet log files, which record data such as user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Service. This information may be used to analyze trends, to administer the Service, to monitor the use of the Service, and to gather general demographic information. We may link this information to personally identifiable information for these and other purposes such as personalizing your experience on the Service and evaluating the Service in general.
Any information you share in a Public Area (including personally identifiable information) is by design open to the public and is not private. You should think carefully before posting any information in any Public Area. What you post can be seen, disclosed to or collected by others and may be used by others in ways we cannot regulate or predict. As with any public forum on any website, the information you post may also show up in third-party search engines like Google, Yahoo, and Bing. If you mistakenly post personally identifiable information in a Public Area you can send us an e-mail to request that we remove it by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org You should understand that in some cases, we may not be able to remove your information
IS INFORMATION SUBMITTED TO THE PUBLIC AREAS OF THE SERVICE PRIVATE?
IS A USERNAME OR AVATAR PRIVATE?
No. A user’s username (including any crypto balances linked to your public wallet address and NFTs owned or sold by you and linked to your public wallet address) and avatar are available to the public, including to all users, when a user shares or posts information in the Public Areas of the Service. When prompted to create a username and avatar, we advise users to use non-personally identifiable information – i.e., select a username that is not similar to a user’s actual name and select an avatar that does not display the user’s image – because such information can be publicly available to all users
DOES Barter Yard Club COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF AGE?
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The Service is not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13.
WHAT DOES Barter Yard Club DO WITH THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?
We will only use your personally identifiable information to the extent that the law allows us to do so. Pursuant to the European Data Protection Laws, legal bases for our processing your personally identifiable information may include (without limitation):

WHEN DOES Barter Yard Club DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES?
Laws and Legal Rights.
Third Parties Generally.
We may provide to third parties non-personally identifiable information, including where such information is combined with similar information of other users of the Service. For example, we might inform third parties regarding the number of unique users who use the Service, the demographic breakdown of our users of the Service, or the products and/or services purchased using the Service and the vendors of such products and services. In addition to the above, when users use our Service, third parties (including without limitation third-party analytics service providers and commercial partners) may directly collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information about our users’ online activities over time and across different websites. The third parties to which we may provide or who may independently directly collect personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information may include analytics services providers, website tracking services, merchants, affiliates and other actual or potential commercial partners, and other similar parties. Please note in particular that the Service uses Google Analytics, including its data reporting features. Information collected by Google Analytics includes but is not limited to web metrics. For information on how Google Analytics collects and processes data, please see the site “How Google uses data when you use our partners’ sites or apps”, currently located at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. For information on opting out of Google Analytics, we encourage you to visit Google’s website, including its list of currently available opt-out options presently located at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We may provide your information to professional advisors, such as lawyers, auditors, bankers and insurers, where necessary in the course of the professional services that they render to us.
We may employ independent contractors, vendors and suppliers (collectively, « Outside Contractors ») to provide specific services and products related to the Service, such as hosting and maintaining the Service and developing applications for the Service. In the course of providing products or services to us, these Outside Contractors may have access to information collected through the Service, including your personally identifiable information. We use reasonable efforts to ensure that these Outside Contractors are capable of protecting the security of your personally identifiable information.
Sale of Business.
We reserve the right to transfer information to a third party in connection with a sale, merger or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of Barter Yard Club or any of its Corporate Affiliates (as defined below), or that portion of Barter Yard Club or any of its Corporate Affiliates to which the Service relates, or in connection with a strategic investment by a third party in Barter Yard Club, or in the event that we discontinue our business or file a petition or have filed against us a petition in bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding.
IS THE INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH THE SERVICE SECURE?
We want your information (including personally identifiable information) to remain secure. We strive to provide transmission of your information from your computer or mobile device to our servers through techniques that are consistent with commercially reasonable standards and to employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.
Notwithstanding the above, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.
COULD MY INFORMATION BE TRANSFERRED TO OTHER COUNTRIES?
FOR HOW LONG WILL MY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION BE KEPT?
We will only retain your personally identifiable information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it or as otherwise permitted by applicable law. To determine the appropriate retention period for personally identifiable information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of that information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the purposes for which we process your personally identifiable information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE REGARDING MY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION?
Under certain circumstances and in compliance with the European Data Protection Laws, you may have the right to:
Request access to your personally identifiable information (commonly known as ‘subject access request’). This enables you to receive a copy of the personally identifiable information we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it;
Request correction of the personally identifiable information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected;
Request erasure of your personally identifiable information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove your personally identifiable information where there is no good reason for us to continue processing it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove all of your personally identifiable information in certain circumstances;
Object to processing of your personally identifiable information where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or that of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground;
Request the restriction of processing of your personally identifiable information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personally identifiable information, for example, if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it;
Request the transfer of your personally identifiable information to another party; and Lodge a complaint with the relevant supervisory authority (as defined in the European Data Protection Laws). If you have any complaints about the way we process your personally identifiable information, please do contact us. Alternatively, you may lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority which is established in your country.
If you want to review, verify, correct or request erasure of your personally identifiable information, object to the processing of your personally identifiable information, or request that we transfer a copy of your personally identifiable information to another party, please contact email@example.com
You should be aware that it may not be technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our system. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. After receiving your request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to update, correct, change, or delete, as appropriate, all personally identifiable information stored in databases we actively use and other readily searchable media as appropriate, as soon as and to the extent reasonably practicable.
DO NOT TRACK
The term “Do Not Track” refers to a HTTP header offered by certain web browsers to request that websites refrain from tracking the user. When we receive a Do Not Track request we respond by not deploying tracking scripts. Please note we take no other action in response to automated Do Not Track requests. If you have any further questions about tracking, please contact us using our contact details provided below.
