You understand that we are authorized to disclose your personal information to third parties if we buy or sell any business or assets, including our business, if we are under a duty to disclose your information, or if the disclosure of your personal information is necessary for us to conduct an investigation into any unlawful activity that we know or suspect has or may be engaged in.

Use of cookies

Our website and/or App and/or other mobile applications use "cookies". Cookies are small pieces of data sent from a website and stored in your web browser. These pieces of data will allow our website and/or App and/or other mobile applications to remember who you are and to obtain information from you which allows us to deliver you a better and more customized service.

As a result of our website and/or App and/or other mobile applications' use of cookies, we may collect information such as your IP address, online activity and your web browser details. Information that we will not collect or store includes your passwords or other sensitive information.

We will use both persistent cookies, which could remain on your device until their expiration (which can be, in some cases, up to 10 years), and session cookies, which are temporary files removed from your device once your browser is closed.

The types of cookies we may use include analytical and tracking cookies, which allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and analyze use of the services, as well as to verify transactions, and advertising and retargeting cookies, which allow us to generate appropriate advertising directed to you on our website as well as on the App. If you enabled cookies when accessing our website and/or App and/or other mobile applications, we will take this as consent to our use of cookies and other technologies mentioned in our Privacy Policy

Your rights

You can access and update some of your personal information through your Account settings. If you connected to Synesis One via a third-party service, such as Facebook or Google, you can change your settings and unlink that service in your Account settings. You are responsible for keeping your personal information up to date.

You have the right to request access to the personal information we hold about you by contacting us by emailing [email protected].

In some jurisdictions, you can request that your personal information be deleted. Please note that if you request deletion of your personal information, or if your account is suspended, terminated, or voluntarily closed:

  • We may retain your personal information as necessary for our legitimate business interests, such as prevention of money laundering, fraud detection and prevention, and enhancing safety. For example, if we suspend an account for fraud or safety reasons, we may retain information about that account to prevent that member from creating a new account on Synesis One in the future
  • We may retain and use your personal information to the extent necessary to comply with our legal obligations. For example, Synesis One may keep payout information for tax, legal reporting, and auditing obligations.
  • Information you have shared with others (e.g. micro-task submissions) will continue to be publicly visible on Synesis One, even after your Synesis One account is canceled. However, attribution of such information to you may or may not be removed. Some copies of your information (e.g. transaction history) will remain in our database and on the blockchain, but are disassociated from personal identifiers.
  • Because we take measures to protect data from accidental or malicious loss and destruction, residual copies of your personal information may not be removed from our backup systems for a limited period of time.

While no organization can guarantee perfect security, we are continuously implementing and updating administrative, technical, and physical security measures to help protect your information against unauthorized access, loss, destruction, or alteration.

Changes to this privacy policy

We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time in accordance with applicable law. If we do so, we will post the revised Privacy Policy and update the “Last Updated” date at the bottom.
