PRIVACY & COOKIE POLICY

Version 1.2

Last updated on: November 29, 2022

This Privacy & Cookie Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) is adopted by Programmable Equity OÜ (registry code 16320994, hereinafter “we” or “KOOS”).

We provide software and technology www.koos.io (the “KOOS Environment”) that helps companies and other organisations (the “Token Issuers”) to reserve and register tokens (the “Tokens”) to pre-selected persons (the “Contributors") as part of token programmes created by the Token Issuers (each such token programme, the “Programme”).

In KOOS Environment, the Contributors that comply with the conditions of the Programme can complete actions required by the Token Issuer to accept the Tokens after which they will be registered in the token register established for the respective Programme (“Register”) as the holders of respective Tokens (“Token Holders”).

If you participate in the Programme, data controller of your personal data collected upon the use of KOOS Environment in relation to your participation in the Programme is the Token Issuer. For any personal data related requests and to see the privacy terms applicable in relation to Tokens, please contact the Token Issuer.

This Privacy Policy sets out the data processing principles adopted by KOOS.

Unless otherwise defined in the Privacy Policy, the terms such as personal data, data subject, data processing, controller and processor are used in the meaning given to them in Article 4 of the General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679/EU; the “GDPR”).

In such situations, we act as the data processor for Token Issuer.
