By means of this Privacy Policy, we would like to inform the general public of the nature, scope, and purpose of the personal data we collect, use and process, as well as that the processing of personal data by us will always be in line with the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Directive 95/46/EC (“General Data Protection Regulation”/”GDPR”/”Regulation”). Furthermore, data subjects are informed, by means of this Privacy Policy, of the rights to which they are entitled.

As a controller for the data collected via our Website, Block Explorer has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of the personal data processed.

I. Definitions

This Privacy Policy is based on the terms used by the European legislator for the adoption of the General Data Protection Regulation.

  2. Data subject - any identified or identifiable natural person, whose personal data is processed by Block Explorer;
  3. Processing - any operation or set of operations which is performed on Personal data or on sets of Personal data;
  4. Controller - a legal person, which alone determines the purposes and means of the processing of Personal data. Block Explorer is a Controller, regarding the Personal data collected via our Website;
  5. Processor - a legal person, which processes Personal data on behalf of the Controller.

III. Contact possibility via our Website: https://blockexplorer.one

Our Website contains information that enables a quick electronic contact. If a Data subject contacts us via the contact form of our Website, the Personal data transmitted by the Data subject, e.g. name and email address, are automatically stored and processed by Block Explorer in his capacity of a Controller of Personal data.

Such Personal data is transmitted on a voluntary basis by a Data subject to the Controller. It is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the Data subject. There is no transfer of this Personal data to third parties.

IV. Subscription to our newsletters

On the Website is given the opportunity to subscribe to a newsletter by ticking the relevant box. Data subjects may at any time revoke a given consent and for this purpose a corresponding link is found in each newsletter or email including a newsletter.

V. Legal basis for the processing

Art. 6(1) lit. a GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which the Controller obtains consent for a specific processing purpose, as is the case in Section V of this Privacy Policy when our clients, in their capacity of Controllers, obtain consent for direct marketing purposes.

Article 6(1) lit. b GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations for which the processing of Personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the Data subject is party, as is the case in Section IV of this Privacy Policy when our clients, in their capacity of Controllers, conclude contracts with the Data subjects in order to provide them with the relevant services requested. The same applies to such processing operations which are necessary for carrying out pre-contractual measures, as is the case in Section III of this Privacy Policy when Block Explorer, in its capacity of a Controller, receive inquiries from Data subjects concerning its products or services.

Art. 28 GDPR serves as the legal basis for processing operations where processing is to be carried out on behalf of a Controller by a Processor on the ground of concluded by both legal contract, as is the case in Section IV and Section V of this Privacy Policy, regarding the Personal data processed by Block Explorer, in his capacity of a Processor, on behalf of its clients, in their capacity of Controllers.

VI. Possible consequences of failure to provide such data

The non-provision of the Personal data would have the consequence that the service requested by the Data subject could not be provided, i.e. the Data subject would not be able to contact us via our Website: https://blockexplorer.one (Section III).

VII. Period for which the personal data will be stored

Personal data is stored up until the termination of user’s account. After that, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or there is no other legal ground on processing the data.
