‍2.1 The Services allow you to generate, authorize, submit and broadcast transactions on the “Stellar Network,” a distributed ledger network powered by an open-source protocol, the reference implementation for which is found here: This Privacy Policy does not apply to any information transmitted to the Stellar Network through the Services.

2.2 Information we may transmit to the Stellar Network includes, but is not limited to, your public sending address, the public key information of the receiver, the amount of digital currency sent or exchanged, the time and date of the transaction, and any other data you may choose to include. Due to the inherent nature of blockchain technology, information stored on the Stellar Network is public and permanent and cannot be hidden, amended, or deleted. You should be aware that any information posted to the Stellar Network will be made permanently available to the public. Your transactions and addresses may reveal information about you and those with whom you are transacting. Such information can potentially be correlated with you and others now, or in the future, by any party who chooses to do so, including law enforcement.

‍The information we collect about you depends on how you interact with us or use our Services. In this section, we describe the categories of information we collect and the sources of this information.

3.1 Information You Provide to Us
‍We collect information you provide directly to us. For example, you share information directly with us when you create an account, fill out a form, request customer support, or otherwise communicate with us. The types of personal information we may collect include your first and last name, email address, phone number, username, personal photograph, phone number address book (if you choose to sync contacts to the Application), and any other information you choose to provide.

‍3.2 Information We Collect Automatically When You Interact with Us

i. Registration Information:
We collect information about you when you register for an account for the Services, such as IP address, public key information, device information and information used for key recovery services.

ii. Transactional Information: When you submit transactions to the Stellar Network, we collect information about the transaction, including a list of all deposits, withdrawals, transfers, and exchanges; sender; recipient; asset type; amount; time stamp; and date.

a. We also collect information about transactions generated by Anchors (as defined below) that are shared with us for the purpose of facilitating your transactions. An “Anchor” is a participant on the Stellar Network that: (i) issues digital assets on the Stellar Network that are tied to the value of a real currency or other asset (e.g., a dollar-denominated token); and (ii) offers eligible persons the ability to convert between a real currency and its correlated digital asset.

b. We also collect information about public recovery keys generated by Key Recovery Service Providers (each a “KRSP”) that are shared with us for the purpose of enabling key and account recovery upon your request.

iii. Device and Usage Information:
We collect information about how you access our Services, including data about the device you use, such as your hardware model, operating system version, mobile network, IP address, unique device identifiers, browser type, and app version. We also collect information about your activity on our website, such as browser type, operating system, device type, access times, pages viewed, links clicked, and the page you visited before navigating to our Services.

iv. Information Collected by Cookies and Similar Tracking Technologies:
We (and our service providers) use tracking technologies, such as cookies and web beacons, to collect information about you. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive, or in device memory, that help us improve our Services and your experience, identify which areas and features of our Services are popular, and count visits. Web beacons (also known as “pixel tags” or “clear GIFs”) are electronic images that we use on our Services and in our emails to help deliver cookies, count visits, and understand usage. For more information about cookies and how to disable them, see the Your Choices section below.

‍3.3 Information We Collect from Other Sources
‍We may supplement the information we collect from you with information we collect from third parties. For example, we may obtain information about you from Anchors, data analytics providers, list brokers, and other third parties. As one specific example, when we act as a KRSP for a third-party wallet application provider, we may collect information such as your phone number and/or email address from that third-party wallet application provider to create your KRSP account and to execute your account recovery operation.

3.4 Information We Derive
‍We may derive information or draw inferences about you based on the information we collect. For example, we may make inferences about your location (at the city, state, or region level) based on your IP address.


‍We use the information we collect to administer your account and provide you the Services. We also use the information we collect to:

iv. When you authorize the creation of a separate recovery account with a KRSP, or request an account recovery operation from a KRSP, we will share with the KRSP information required by the KRSP to create your account with them or to execute your account recovery operation, such as your phone number or email address.
