This Privacy Policy also describes your data protection rights, including your right to object to some data practices regarding Personal Information. This Privacy Policy applies to Personal Information collected through our website, located at (the “Site”) or through our cryptocurrency kiosks (“Kiosk” or “Kiosks”) (collectively, the Site and Kiosks are the “Services”).

Information Company Collects About You

Personal Information You Provide

We use the term “Personal Information” to mean any information that could be used to identify you, including your name, address, email address, birth date, financial information, cell or land-line phone number, or any combination of information that could be used to identify you.

When you interact with our Site or Kiosks, we collect Personal Information that you choose to share with us. The Personal Information that we collect can vary depending on which Company service you utilise:

· When you interact with one of our physical Kiosk machines, we collect your name, phone number, and a picture of you for all transactions. Depending on the amount of the proposed transaction, we may collect additional Personal Information about you, such as a selfie image, your government ID/driver’s license, government issued identification number such as a Social Security number, and a second form of ID. You will be prompted for such Personal Information depending on the size of the transaction. If you seek to apply to host a Kiosk in your business, we ask you to provide Personal Information such as your name and phone number, as well as information about your store.

· When you interact with the Company’s Order Desk service (“Order Desk”), we collect your name, phone number, and a picture of you, which may include facial recognition software and other biometric data. Depending on the amount of the proposed transaction, you may be required to provide us with your email address, gender, residential address, birth date, country of residence and nationality, employment information and status, national and governmental identification information, and financial and banking details, including any

joint account holders and people appointed to act on your behalf. Company uses this information to undertake anti-money laundering and fraud prevention activities and know your customer reviews. If you do not provide Personal Information that we tell you is mandatory, it may mean that we are unable to onboard you or provide you with Services and or perform all our obligations under our agreement with you. If you give us Personal Information about other people (such as joint account holders), you confirm that they are aware of the information in this Privacy Policy about how we will use their Personal Information, including but not limited to use of their Personal Information to provide services or, if asked, to share such information with third parties (e.g. to provide payment initiation). Once you have been onboarded, Company will continue to use this information as necessary to effect transactions with you. We also obtain data about you from other sources, including identity verification services, fraud prevention agencies, websites and other publicly accessible information about you. We will also receive data you submit to us through third-party websites.

· When you contact us on the Site, or through social media websites, with a question, a comment, or to sign up to receive communications about Company and its products and services from us, you will be asked to provide your name and email address. You can ask us to stop or start sending you such marketing messages at any time by writing, electronic messaging or calling us.

· When you comment on one of our blogs, you may be asked to provide name and email address, and username information.

We have structured our Site so that, as a casual site visitor, you may come to our Site and review selected information about our Services without registering. However, if you wish to use certain Services, you may be asked to create an account, which will require you to provide certain additional Personal Information. Similarly, you will be asked to provide certain additional Personal Information if you wish to contact us through the Site.

Automatically-Collected Information

When you use the Site, even if you do not register for an account, we may collect certain information automatically. For example, we may automatically receive and record in our system the following information:

· your internet protocol (IP) address and location;

· referrer addresses;

· the type and version of your web browser;

· device identifiers including mobile advertising identifiers;

· your operating system; and

· information from your digital services.

We also record page views (hit counts) and other general statistical and tracking information. We use this data to help us administer and operate our Site, to better understand how our users access and interact with the Site, and for security and monitoring purposes. We may also collect information to meet our regulatory obligations; for example we may identify your IP address in order to ascertain and verify your residency status.

We may send email messages that use a “click-through URL” linked to content on our Site. When you click one of these URLs, you pass through our web server before arriving at the destination web page. We track this click-through data to help determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked, simply do not click text or graphic links in the email.

How We Use Your Personal Information

We use your Personal Information for the following business purposes:

· to process transactions that you have authorised us to make;

· to facilitate your activities with respect to our Site;

· to contact you regarding administrative issues, such as questions about your specific request, or otherwise respond to your comments or requests;

· to deliver notices regarding your account;

· to send you information we believe is relevant to you, such as news, bulletins, marketing materials, or other information;

· to enforce this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Service;

· to conduct user surveys and questionnaires; and

· to comply with Applicable Law.

We use aggregated information to analyse the effectiveness of our Site, to improve our Services, and for other similar purposes. In addition, from time to time, we may undertake or commission statistical and other summary analyses of the general behavior and characteristics of users participating in our Services and the characteristics of visitors at our Site, and may share aggregated information with third parties, including advertisers. We may collect aggregated information through features of the software that supports our Services, through cookies, and through other means described in this Privacy Policy.

To enable us to better understand the characteristics of our customers and/or to provide services tailored to your needs, we may combine the Personal Information a customer provides with certain automatically-collected information that would not otherwise be personally identifiable. If we combine or link any automatically-collected, non-individually identifiable information with your Personal Information, the resulting combination will be treated as Personal Information under this Privacy Policy.

How We Share Personal Data

We do not disclose your Personal Information to unaffiliated third parties except as provided in this Privacy Policy, as follows:

Service Providers. To assist us in running our business and to perform certain services and functions, your Personal Information may be disclosed, stored, and/or transferred (or otherwise made available) to third-party providers of services such as identification and background checks, cloud-based information hosting and maintenance, website hosting, record keeping, payment processing, transfer agent, email communication and customer support services, analytics, marketing, and advertising service providers, and to exchanges, trading platforms, and financial institutions. For example, we share Personal Information with identity verification providers to help us verify that people using the Services are who they say they are. We use, Twillio, and Five9 for our customer support functions and share Personal Information with them as necessary to carry out their services to us. We use Facebook and Instagram to track visits to our Site. These

examples are not exhaustive and we may use other vendors over time as well to help us run our business and provide services to you.

Affiliates. We reserve the right to share certain Personal Information with our affiliates, meaning an entity that controls, is controlled by, or is under common control with Company. For example, the Company may share information with the Company that runs the Company’s group’s U.S. Kiosk business, GPD Holdings LLC, which may in turn may share Personal Information with the entity that runs Company’s U.S. Order Desk business, CF Preferred LLC. Our affiliates may use the Personal Information we share in a manner consistent with this Privacy Policy.

For Legal and Compliance Reasons. We and our service providers may share your Personal Information to the extent we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements, such as a warrant, subpoena, or other court order, or to protect against fraud, illegal activity, or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable domestic or international laws or legal processes. Your Personal Information may also be disclosed where necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspected loss or harm to persons or property.

In Connection with a Corporate Transaction. Your Personal Information may be provided to third parties in connection with a business transaction, including a merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceedings) involving all or part of Company or as part of a corporate reorganisation, or stock or asset sale, or other change in corporate control, including for the purpose of determining whether to proceed or continue with such transaction or business relationship. Your Personal Information may also be one of the transferred assets as part of the transaction or bankruptcy. We may also share your Personal Information in the diligence process or to otherwise facilitate any such transaction, and with individuals assisting in the transaction or in connection with a bankruptcy.

For Safety & Security. We may reveal your Personal Information to third parties, including law enforcement agencies, in order to protect the safety and security of our users or of any third party.

Cookies, Pixel Tags, and Similar Technologies

Our Site uses a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a small amount of data, often including a unique identifier, which is sent to your browser from a website’s computers and stored on your computer’s hard drive.

We use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies, as follows:

Session cookies: We use session cookies to improve navigation on the Site and to collect aggregate statistical information. A session cookie expires when you close your browser. Additionally, If you have registered with the Site, these cookies (1) may let us know who you are, (2) may be necessary to access your account information (stored on our computers) in order to provide personalised services, and (3) will provide us and our service providers with information that we will use to personalise the Site in accordance with your preferences and interests. Because these cookies are strictly necessary to use the Site, you cannot refuse them.

"Persistent" cookies: Persistent cookies are bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and can remain for extended periods of time. Persistent cookies also enable us to provide enhanced, more personal features (such as showing-hiding notifications), and track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Site. The types of persistent cookies used on the Site are described in more detail below. You may set your browser so that it

does not accept cookies, and you may also use the direct opt-out tools provided by the parties described below. If you do not enable or if you disable cookies, however, you may not be able to access certain personalised features of our Services.

We may also use so-called “pixel tags” - small graphic images (also known as “tracer tags,” “web beacons,” or “single-pixel images”) - to tell us what parts of our Site have been visited or to measure the effectiveness of marketing campaigns on our Site. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, pixel tags are embedded invisibly on our Site. Pixel tags inform us whether emails have been opened, to help ensure that our messages are of interest to our Registered Users. We may tie the information gathered by pixel tags to our users’ Personal Information, in which case it will be subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.

In particular, the Site uses:

· Google Analytics, an analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyse how users use the Site.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Site, compiling reports on Site activity for Site operators and providing other services relating to Site activity and internet usage, including tracking which pages of our Site you visit so we can optimise your experience with our Site. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. We have implemented the IP anonymisation feature in Google Analytics which anonymises your IP address to protect individual privacy. You can opt-out from the collection of this information by Google by downloading and installing a browser plug-in at For more information on Google Analytics privacy practices, read and, for information on Google Analytics cookies expiration, read
