1. Basic information

GotaBit has created this Privacy Policy to demonstrate our commitment to your privacy. This privacy policy ("Privacy Policy") will provide you with information about the collection, processing and use of personal data when using our website. It also describes your options regarding the use, access and correction of your personal information, as well as your rights in deciding how we use the information we collect or hold about you. Our goal is to empower you by providing you with simple and clear information so you can make informed decisions about our products and services.

GotaBit is the operator of this website as well as GotaBit.org (each of which is its own "Site", which together form an ecosystem of "Sites"). As an advocacy project, we believe that the protection of your personal data and privacy is very important. It is our policy to always respect your privacy and rights as it relates to any information we may collect from you when you visit the Site. We will only ask for your personal information when it is essential to provide the service. If this happens, it is our policy to collect, process and use your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Policy and in compliance with the General European Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR").

It is our policy to retain the above information for as long as necessary to provide you with the best browsing experience. The protection of such data is accomplished within the scope of commercially acceptable means. These steps are taken to mitigate data loss, theft, use and modification.

GotaBit will not disclose or share any of your data with third parties unless expressly required by law.

These "Sites" may from time to time link to third-party, external websites that we do not operate. GotaBit has no control over the content and practices of these sites and cannot be held responsible for their respective privacy policies.

If you provide us with personal data of any third parties (eg colleagues, family members, colleagues, etc.), it is your responsibility to ensure that those parties are familiar with this Privacy Policy. Likewise, you should only consider sharing their personal data with their express permission.
