Privacy Policy

Celsius Network LLC (“Celsius”) knows that you care about how your personal information is used and shared, and we take your privacy seriously. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy practices (“Privacy Policy”). By using the Celsius website at Celsius.Network (the “Services”), you accept the practices outlined in this Privacy Policy.

What Does This Privacy Policy Cover?

This Privacy Policy covers Celsius’ treatment of information that Celsius gathers when you use the Services. This Privacy Policy does not cover use of information by third parties we do not control.

What Information Does Celsius Collect?

You can generally visit and use the Celsius website without providing any personally identifiable information. When you request additional information about the Services, apply to Celsius and/or to obtain access to the Celsius Platform, we will collect certain contact information from you, including but not limited to, your name, organization name, address, email address, phone number, citizenship, password, birthday (excluding year) and photo (collectively, “Contact Information”). You may also submit reviews about certain hardware products on the Celsius Platform.

As you navigate the Celsius website, Celsius may also collect information through the use of commonly-used information-gathering tools, such as cookies and Web beacons (“Site Information”). Site Information includes standard information from your Web browser (such as browser type and browser language), your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, and the actions you take on the website (such as the Web pages viewed and the links clicked).

We may use session and/or persistent cookies. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time. You can read more about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.

We may set a persistent cookie to store your Site Information. Persistent cookies enable us to track, store and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our website. If you reject cookies, you may still use our website, but your ability to use some areas of our website may be limited.

Celsius currently does not track users over time and over our multiple webpages or applications. However, third party providers of external services like web traffic analysis services, such as Facebook Pixel, Google Adwords Pixel and mixpanel may track users over time and over our website and third party websites and such third parties may also place cookies, via our website.

Your browser may offer you a “Do Not Track” option, which allows you to signal to operators of websites and web applications and services (including behavioral advertising services) that you do not wish such operators to track certain of your online activities over time and/or across different websites. Our website does not support or follow Do Not Track requests at this time.

How does Celsius use information?

Celsius uses the Contact Information to respond to your requests for information and to review your application to Celsius. We also use your Contact Information to provide you with support, improve our Services and verify your authority to access and use the Services.

We also may use your information that we collect to monitor, further develop, and improve the Services, detect fraud, illegal activities or security breaches and verify your authority to access the Services.

How does Celsius secure your information?

We endeavor to protect the privacy of your account and other Personal Information we hold in our records, but unfortunately, we cannot guarantee complete security. To protect your data, we use reasonable measures such as encryption and password protection.

Will Celsius Disclose Any of the Information it Receives?

We do not rent, sell or disclose your data to anyone – except for the following limited purposes:

 

Service Providers: We may employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf – meaning they are helping us provide our Services. We may share your data with such companies/persons solely as necessary for them to help us provide the Services. Unless we tell you differently, Celsius service providers do not have any right to use data we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.

 

Affiliates and Business Transfers: We may share your data with our affiliated entities within our corporate family. In some cases, we also may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if Celsius, or substantially all of its assets, were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Celsius goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party.

 

Protection of Celsius and Others: We may be required to release data pursuant to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements or when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Hardware Club, our employees, our users, or others. Law enforcement officials who believe that notification would jeopardize an investigation should obtain an appropriate court order or other appropriate process establishing that notice is prohibited.

 

With Your Consent: Except as set forth above, you will be notified when your data may be shared with third parties, and will be able to prevent the sharing of this information.

Children

The Services are not targeted to children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personally identifiable information from children under 13; if you are a child under 13, please do not use the Services or send any personal information about yourself to us. If we learn we have collected personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that a child under 13 may have provided us personal information, please contact us at platform@celsius.network.

Access, Corrections and Deletions of information

You may correct, amend, or delete certain personal information we hold about you by accessing your account.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

Celsius may amend this Privacy Policy from time to time. Use of information we collect now is subject to the Privacy Policy in effect at the time such information is used. If we make any material changes to this Privacy Policy, we will provide notice of such changes through a posting on the Celsius website or through another reasonable means of communication. Users are bound by any changes to the Privacy Policy when he or she uses the Services after such notice has been provided.

Questions or Concerns

If you have any questions or concerns regarding privacy in connection with the Services, please send us a detailed message at platform@celsius.network. We will make every effort to resolve your concerns.

Users Outside of the United States

If you elect to use our Services, and you are outside the United States, by using the Services you consent and agree to this Privacy Policy and to the processing of that information in the United States of America as described in this Privacy Policy. Our computer systems and third party hosting provider systems are currently based in the United States, so your personal data will be processed by us in the United States where data protection and privacy regulations may not offer the same level of protection as in other parts of the world, such as the European Union. In particular, you are advised that the United States of America uses a sectoral model of privacy protection that relies on a mix of legislation, governmental regulation, and self-regulation. Article 26 of the European Union’s Data Protection Directive (Directive 95/46/EC, 1995 O.J. (L 281) 31) allows for transfer of personal data from the European Union to a third country if the individual has unambiguously given his or her consent to the transfer of personal information, regardless of the third country’s level of protection.
