Scope of the processing of personal data As a matter of principle, we only collect and use personal data from you insofar as this is necessary to provide a functional website and our content and services, e.g. when you participate in ANIA token presale or in IDO. The collection and use of your personal data regularly only takes place with your consent. An exception applies in cases where prior consent is not possible for actual reasons and the processing of the data is permitted by legal regulations.
Security The security of your personal data is a high priority for us. We therefore protect your data stored with us by technical and organizational measures in order to effectively prevent loss or misuse by third parties. In particular, our employees who process personal data are bound to data secrecy and must comply with it. To protect your personal data, it is transmitted in encrypted form; for example, we use SSL=Secure Socket Layer for communication via your Internet browser. You can recognize this by the lock symbol that your browser displays when an SSL connection is established. In order to ensure the permanent protection of your data, the technical security measures are regularly checked and, if necessary, adapted to the state of the art. These principles also apply to companies that process and use data on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions.
Purposes of processing and legal basis We collect, process and use your personal data for the following purposes:
Establishment and performance of contractual relationships; Sending newsletters; Marketing measures; Customer satisfaction surveys and analyzes; Product evaluations; Customer service and customer support; To process orders for our online range of goods.

The processing of your personal data may be based on the following legal grounds:
Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR serves as our legal basis for processing operations where we obtain your consent for a specific processing purpose. Art. 6 (1) lit. b GDPR, insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract. The same applies to such processing operations that are necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures, for example in the case of inquiries about our products or services. Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR, insofar as we are subject to a legal obligation that requires the processing of personal data, such as for the fulfillment of tax obligations. Art. 6 (1) lit. d GDPR in the event that vital interests of you or another natural person require the processing of personal data. Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR applies on the basis of our legitimate interests, e.g. when using service providers as part of order processing, such as shipping service providers or when carrying out statistical surveys and analyzes and logging registration procedures. Our interest is directed towards the use of a user-friendly, appealing and secure presentation as well as optimization of our website, which serves our business interests as well as meeting your expectations.
Data subject rights The following rights arise from the GDPR for you as a data subject of a processing of personal data:
Pursuant to Art. 15 GDPR, you may request information about your personal data processed by us. In particular, you can request information about the processing purposes, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage period, the existence of a right to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right of complaint, the origin of your data if it has not been collected by us, about a transfer to third countries or to international organisations, and about the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and, if applicable, meaningful information about its details.
Pursuant to Art. 16 GDPR, you can immediately request the correction of inaccurate or the completion of your personal data stored by us.
Pursuant to Art. 17 GDPR, you may request the erasure of your personal data stored by us, unless the processing is necessary for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
Pursuant to Art. 18 GDPR, you may request the restriction of the processing of your personal data if you dispute the accuracy of the data, the processing is unlawful, we no longer need the data and you object to their erasure because you need them for the assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims. You also have the right under Article 18 of the GDPR if you have objected to the processing in accordance with Article 21 of the GDPR.
Pursuant to Art. 20 GDPR, you may request to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or you may request that it be transferred to another controller.
Pursuant to Art. 7 (3) GDPR, you may revoke your consent once given to us at any time. This has the consequence that we may no longer continue the data processing based on this consent for the future.
In accordance with Art. 77 GDPR, you have the right to complain to a supervisory authority. As a rule, you can contact the supervisory authority of your usual place of residence, your place of work or our company headquarters for this purpose.
Right of objection When your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. f GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data pursuant to Art. 21 GDPR, insofar as there are grounds for doing so that arise from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the case of direct advertising, you have a general right of objection, which is implemented by us without specifying a particular situation.
Duration of storage and routine deletion of personal data We process and store your personal data only for the period of time required to fulfill the purpose of storage or if this has been provided for, in laws or regulations. After the purpose has ceased to exist or has been fulfilled, your personal data will be deleted or blocked.
In the case of blocking, deletion will take place as soon as legal, statutory or contractual retention periods do not conflict with this, there is no reason to assume that deletion would impair your interests worthy of protection and deletion would not cause a disproportionately high expense due to the special nature of the storage.
Collection of general data and information, so-called log files If you visit our website for information purposes only, without providing personal data via registration or in any other way, only the Internet connection data that your browser transmits to our server will be processed. Our website collects a series of general data and information with each call, which is temporarily stored in log files of a server. A log file is created in the course of an automatic protocol of the processing computer system. The following can be recorded:
Access to the website (date, time and frequency) How you arrived at the website (previous page, hyperlink etc.) Amount of data sent Which browser and browser version you are using The operating system you are using Which internet service provider you use Your IP address, which your Internet access provider assigns to your computer when you connect to the Internet
The legal basis for this data processing is Article 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. b of the GDPR, as the collection and storage of this data is necessary for the operation of the website in order to ensure the functionality of the website and to deliver the content of our website correctly.
In addition, the data serve us to optimize our website and to ensure the security of our IT systems and the processing is based in this respect on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. For this reason, the data is stored for a maximum of 7 days as a technical precaution.
We also use this data for the purposes of advertising, market research and to design our services to meet your needs by creating and evaluating user profiles under pseudonyms, but only if you have not exercised your right to object to this use of your data (see information on the right to object under "Your rights").
Sending information We use your data for sending information ordered by you about our offer and other promotions from us to the e-mail address provided by you.
On our website there is the possibility to subscribe to a free newsletter. When you register for the newsletter, the data from the input mask is transmitted to us, i.e. at least your e-mail address. The registration is carried out by means of the so-called double opt-in procedure.
After registration, you will receive an e-mail asking you to confirm your registration. This confirmation is necessary so that no one can register with other people's e-mail addresses. For the processing of the data, your consent is obtained during the registration process and reference is made to this data protection notice. If you register for our newsletter, which informs you about our latest products and services, the personal data you provide in this context (such as name, address and e-mail address) will be processed by us for the purpose of sending you the newsletter.
If you purchase goods on our website, we may send you information on our own similar goods to your specified e-mail address even without your consent. The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR, because advertising related products and services by way of direct advertising represents a legitimate interest for us as the provider of this website. You may object to the processing of your personal data for the purpose of direct advertising at any time. We will then refrain from further processing for such purposes. You can send us your objection as described below. In addition, you can object to the sending of such newsletters at any time in the future without giving reasons by unsubscribing via the unsubscribe link at the end of each newsletter or by contacting us in any other way.
We would like you to enjoy reading our e-mails. Therefore, we try to only include content that you are likely to be interested in. We therefore measure and store opening and click-through rates in your usage profile, i.e. whether and when you open our emails, which content of the emails you click on and when, as well as whether and why our emails could possibly not be delivered. We also use this data for statistical purposes. In particular, this serves our legitimate interest to evaluate the performance of the individual newsletter campaigns and to define optimization measures in order to make the newsletter as attractive and suitable as possible for you. The legal basis for the processing is therefore Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Of course, you can unsubscribe from receiving our information at any time, i.e. revoke your consent with effect for the future or object to data processing. For this purpose, you will find a corresponding unsubscribe link in every mail or newsletter and can confirm the unsubscription on our website. You can also contact us for a cancellation at any time.
In order to establish or implement the contractual relationship with our customers, it is regularly necessary to process the personal data provided to us. The data provided by you may includes:
first name last name email address country of residence MetaMask Wallet Address Participating Amount Identification Documents Proof of Residence
We also process customer and prospect data for risk evaluation, Anti Money laundering and risk management and KYC purposes. This processing is carried out on the legal basis of our legitimate interest, and our legal obligations and serves our interest in further developing our services, to carry out our services lawfully and informing you specifically about our services. Further data processing may take place if you have consented or if this serves the fulfilment of a legal obligation such as adherence to Anti Money laundering Obligations.
Commercial and business services We process data of our contractual and business partners, e.g., customers and interested parties in the context of contractual and comparable legal relationships as well as related measures and in the context of communication with contractual partners (or pre-contractual), e.g., to answer inquiries.
We process this data to fulfil our contractual obligations, to secure our rights and for the purposes of the administrative tasks associated with this information as well as for business organization. We only disclose the data of the contractual partners to third parties within the scope of the applicable law to the extent that this is necessary for the aforementioned purposes or for the fulfilment of legal obligations or with the consent of the contractual partners (e.g., to participating telecommunications, transport, and other auxiliary services as well as subcontractors, banks, tax and legal advisers, payment service providers or tax authorities).
Unless otherwise specified the purposes of processing are Contractual performance and service, contact requests and communication, office and organisational procedures, administration, and response to requests, interest-based and behavioural marketing. And, the Legal bases are Contractual performance and pre-contractual inquiries, Legal obligation, and our Legitimate interests.
Disclosure of personal data to third parties Your personal data will only be passed on if there is a legal obligation to do so or to service providers and partner companies that have been carefully selected in advance and are contractually obliged to comply with the requirements of data protection law.
We pass on your personal data for the conclusion and processing of contracts for offers on our website to affiliated companies. This is particularly necessary so that you can use all our offers.
For the operation and optimization of our website and our services and for the processing of contracts, various service companies work for us, e.g. for central IT services or the hosting of our website, for the payment and delivery of products or for the dispatch of newsletters, to whom we pass on the data required for the fulfillment of the task (e.g. name, address).
Some of these companies act for us by way of commissioned processing and may therefore use the data provided exclusively in accordance with our instructions. In this case, we are legally responsible for appropriate data protection precautions at the companies we commission. We therefore agree on specific data security measures with these companies and monitor them regularly.
We will disclose your data to third parties or government agencies within the framework of existing data protection laws if we are legally obliged to do so, e.g. due to official or court orders, or if we are entitled to do so, e.g. because this is necessary for the prosecution of criminal offenses or for the exercise and enforcement of our rights and claims.
Data transfer to third countries If we use service providers in third countries, we take additional measures to ensure an adequate level of data protection for the transfer of personal data in accordance with Art. 44 of the GDPR and thus ensure that the transfer is generally permissible and that the special requirements for a transfer to a third country are met (e.g. by concluding standard contracts and additional guarantees, supplementary technical and organizational measures such as encryption or anonymization).
Among other things, we use tools from companies based in the USA or other third countries that are not secure under data protection law. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to these third countries and processed there. We would like to point out that no level of data protection comparable to that in the EU can be guaranteed in these countries. For example, US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
Storing your data We store your data as long as it is needed for the respective processing purpose. Please note that numerous retention periods require that data continue to be stored. This applies in particular to retention obligations under commercial or tax law. If there are no further storage obligations, the data will be routinely deleted after the purpose has been achieved.
SSL or TLS encryption For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as orders or enquiries that you send to us as the Platform operator, this Platform uses SSL or TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by the fact that the address line of the browser changes from "http://" to "https://" and by the lock symbol in your browser line.
Blog Within the Blog you may be able to display certain profile information, share certain details, engage with others, exchange knowledge and insights, post and view relevant content. Content and data is publicly viewable. You have choices about the information on your comment. You don’t have to provide additional information on your comment; It’s your choice whether to include sensitive information on your comment and to make that sensitive information public. Please do not post or add personal data to your comment that you would not want to be available.
Analysis tools The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure a needs-oriented design and continuous optimization of our web site. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our web site and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.
The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools. All cookies except the necessary cookies can be managed at any time in the cookie settings.
Google Analytics For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). If you have your habitual residence in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, the services of Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) will be made available to you, unless otherwise specified in any additional terms and conditions. Hereinafter "Google". In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created, possibly also across devices, and cookies are used (see under point 5). The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as Browser type/version, operating system used, Referrer URL (the previously visited page),host name of the accessing computer (IP address), time of the server request, will be transmitted to a Google server in Estonia or at instances in the USA and stored there for up to 24 months. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet use for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these web pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an allocation is not possible (IP masking).
Social Media The data you enter on our social media pages, such as comments, videos, pictures, likes, public messages, etc. are published by the social media platform and are not used or processed by us for any other purpose at any time. We only reserve the right to delete content if this should be necessary. Where applicable, we share your content on our site if this is a function of the social media platform and communicate with you via the social media platform. The legal basis is our legitimate interest. The data processing is carried out in the interest of our public relations and communication.
If you wish to object to certain data processing over which we have an influence, please contact us. We will then examine your objection. If you send us a request on the social media platform, we may also refer you to other secure communication channels that guarantee confidentiality, depending on the response required. You always have the option of sending us confidential enquiries to our address stated in the imprint.
As already stated, where the social media platform provider gives us the opportunity, we take care to design our social media pages to be as data protection compliant as possible. With regard to statistics that the provider of the social media platform makes available to us, we can only influence these to a limited extent and cannot switch them off. However, we make sure that no additional optional statistics are made available to us.
Data processing by the operator of the social media platform The operator of the social media platform uses web tracking methods. The web tracking can also take place regardless of whether you are logged in or registered with the social media platform. As already explained, we can unfortunately hardly influence the web tracking methods of the social media platform. We cannot, for example, switch this off.
Please be aware: It cannot be ruled out that the provider of the social media platform uses your profile and behavioural data, for example to evaluate your habits, personal relationships, preferences, etc. We have no influence on this. In this respect, we have no influence on the processing of your data by the provider of the social media platform.
Am i Obliged To Provide Data? The processing of your data is necessary for the conclusion or fulfillment of the contract you have entered into with us. If you do not provide us with this data, we will usually have to refuse to conclude the contract or will no longer be able to perform an existing contract and consequently have to terminate it. However, you are not obliged to give your consent to data processing with regard to data that is not relevant for the fulfillment of the contract or that is not required by law.
Automated decision-making and profiling We do not use automation for decision-making and profiling.
Do Not Track Do Not Track is a privacy preference you can set in most browsers. We support Do Not Track because we believe that you should have genuine control over how your info gets used and our site responds to Do Not Track requests.
Do Not Sell My Personal Information We do not sell information that directly identifies you, like your name, address or phone records.
Accuracy It is important that the data we hold about you is accurate and current, therefore please keep us informed of any changes to your personal data.
Online presences in social media We maintain online presences in social networks and platforms on the basis of our legitimate interests and in order to communicate with customers, interested parties, members and users who are active there. Unless otherwise stated in this policy, we process the data of users if they communicate with us within the social networks and platforms, e.g. write articles on our online presences or send us messages.
Changes In order to ensure that our data protection information always complies with the current legal requirements, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies in the event that the data protection information has to be adapted due to new or revised offers or services.
What is a cookie? Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer or internet-enabled device via your browser. The cookie allows the website to "remember" your actions or preferences over time. Most internet browsers support cookies; however, users can set their browsers to reject certain types of cookies or certain cookies. Users can also delete cookies at any time.
What types of cookies do we use? First-party and third-party cookies We use both first-party and third-party cookies on our website.
First-party cookies First-party cookies are cookies issued by Arkania Protocol, typically used to determine language and location preferences or for basic site functionality.
Third-party cookies Third-party cookies are owned and operated by other parties, such as Arkania Protocol's business partners or service providers. These cookies may be required to submit certain forms, such as job applications, or to enable advertising outside of the Arkania Protocol website.
Session cookies Session cookies are temporary cookies that are used during the course of your visit to the website to remember you and end when you close the web browser.
Permanent cookies Persistent cookies are used to remember your preferences on the website and remain on your desktop or internet-enabled device even after you close your browser or restart your computer. We use these cookies to analyze user behavior to establish visiting patterns so that we can improve our website functionality for you and others who visit our website. These cookies also allow us to deliver targeted advertising to you and measure the effectiveness of our site functionality and advertising.
Necessary cookies Cookies may be absolutely necessary for the operation of a website (e.g. to store logins or other user input or for security reasons).
Essential Essential cookies help ensure that users can navigate the website by providing basic facilities such as navigating pages and accessing secure areas. Without these cookies the website would not function for its intended purpose.
Functional Functional cookies allow information to be stored that can change the appearance or actions on the website. This could be your preferred language or region.
Analytics Analytical cookies help the website owner understand how visitors interact with the website by collecting information and generating reports.
How are cookies used for advertising purposes? Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help us deliver relevant ads to you in a more effective way. They also help us collect aggregate audit data, research and performance reporting for advertisers. Pixels allow us to understand and improve the delivery of ads to you and to know when you were shown certain ads. Because your web browser can request ads and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit or deploy their own cookies as if you had requested a web page from their website.
Although we profile your browsing behavior on third party website, we use aggregate data from third parties to display relevant, interest-based advertising to you. We do not share any personal information we collect with advertisers. By adjusting your cookie settings, you can opt-out of off-site ("off-site") and third-party informed advertising. By opting out, the advertising will not be removed from the pages you visit, but you will instead find ads that are not targeted to your interests. This means that the ad(s) you see will not be matched to your interests through these specific cookies.
You can also find more details about deleting and rejecting cookies and general information about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org. By using our website without deleting or rejecting some or all cookies, you agree that we may place those cookies that you have not deleted or rejected on your device.
Configuration of browser settings You can manage your cookie settings using the setting options listed below or by configuring your browser settings. Most browsers are preset to accept cookies by default. However, you can configure your respective browser so that it only accepts certain cookies or not at all. You can also use your browser settings to delete cookies already stored in your browser or to have the storage period displayed. Furthermore, it is possible to set your browser to notify you before cookies are stored. Since the various browsers can differ in their respective functions, we ask you to use the respective help menu of your browser for the configuration options. If you would like a comprehensive overview of all third-party accesses to your Internet browser, we recommend that you install specially developed plug-ins for this purpose.
