Other Users and we may access and use the User Materials as described in our T&Cs. This applies even if you or someone else also provides such information to us by other means. Our use of such information might have been more limited under this Policy if such information was only provided to us by other means. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have the right to share any information about others that you may share with us or with others through our Services.

TO WHOM DO WE SHARE PERSONAL INFORMATION?
Personal Information. Under this Policy, "Personal Information" means information that by itself can be used to identify or contact a specific person (for example, username, e-mail address, and/or your public cryptocurrency wallet address), and Personal Information does not include information that has been aggregated or made anonymous so that by itself it no longer identifies and can no longer reasonably be used to contact a specific person. In certain circumstances, Personal Information may also include information you voluntarily provide to us. We will not share your Personal Information with others other than in the ways described in this Policy or otherwise without your prior consent. In addition to the other sharing of Personal Information described in this Policy, we may share your Personal Information with others in the following contexts.
Service Providers: We may contract with third-party service providers that help us provide our Services or perform services for us related to them. They may process your Personal Information as necessary to perform those functions for us. Examples may include but are not limited to: identity verification, document authentication, public database review, payment processing, bill collection, fraud investigation, e-mail, and postal mail administration, customer service assistance, web and mobile data analytics, display ads, and server and database hosting services. To avoid doubt, we do not sell your Personal Information to our Service Providers.
Transactions: We may use third-party cryptocurrency wallet extensions to conduct cryptocurrency transactions. The applicable privacy policies govern your interactions with third-party cryptocurrency wallet extensions.
If there are any errors you may make when using third-party cryptocurrency payment processors (such as sending the wrong cryptocurrency to a specific cryptocurrency standard wallet address), we may communicate directly with third-party cryptocurrency payment processors to ensure we receive your payment. You hereby authorize us to communicate with third-party cryptocurrency payment processors to solve any cryptocurrency payment errors on your behalf.
Business Transfers: If we are involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of assets, your Personal Information may be one of the assets transferred. In this event, we will inform the A-ADS Users about a change of ownership of their Personal Information by updating this document or announcing it on the A-ADS website or through the A-ADS social media channels.
Legal Purposes: We may access, preserve, and disclose your Personal Information and/or other information if we believe that such access, preservation, or disclosure is reasonably necessary to: (i) comply with any law, regulation, legal process, or governmental request (such as search warrants, subpoenas or court orders), which may include responding to legal requests; (ii) enforce our T&Cs or our other policies or agreements with Users, or investigate potential violations; (iii) detect, prevent or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; (iv) protect or enforce the rights or property of A-ADS, you, or any other person or entity; or (v) prevent physical harm to any person, including situations involving possible violence or self-harm.
AGGREGATED AND NON-PERSONAL INFORMATION
We may aggregate and/or make anonymous any Personal Information that we have obtained in any way from or about you or others so that such information no longer contains any Personal Information. We may use and share any aggregated, anonymous, or other non-personally identifying information for any legitimate business purposes, including research and development, marketing, and to inform others about how our Services or Content are engaged with or used.
OTHER WEBSITES AND SERVICES
A-ADS is headquartered in Anguilla. Our Users, service providers, and other third parties you may interact with in connection with our Services, may be located in different countries around the world, including countries that may not offer the same level of protection for Personal Information as that offered in Anguilla. By accessing or using our Services in Anguilla or any other country or jurisdiction, you agree that your information may be transferred and processed in Anguilla and any other country or jurisdiction.
Our Services are not directed to anyone under 18, and we do not knowingly collect Personal Information from people in this age group. If you believe we may have collected Personal Information from anyone under the age of 18, please get in touch with us.
Every A-ADS account is protected to help maintain privacy and security on our Services. If you register for an account, we urge you to use a strong password containing unique numbers, letters, and special characters and to protect the confidentiality of your password at all times. If you suspect or become aware of any unauthorized access to or use of your account or password, you agree to immediately notify us and change your password. We take reasonable technical and organizational measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of your personal data and accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to, your Personal Information. While no system is entirely secure, we believe the measures implemented by the site reduce our vulnerability to security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We have security measures to protect our user database, and access to this database is restricted internally. However, it remains your responsibility:
To protect against unauthorized access to your use of the site and/or Services;
To ensure no one else uses the Site and/or Services while your device is logged on to the site (including by logging on to your device through a mobile, Wi-Fi, or shared access connection you are using);
To log off or exit from the Site and/or Services when not using it;
Where relevant, keep your password or other access information secret. Your password and login details are personal to you and should not be given to anyone else or used to provide shared access, for example, over a network; and
To maintain excellent internet security.
It would be best if you kept all of your account details secure. If you think that any of your accounts have been compromised, you should change your account credentials with us, and in particular, make sure any compromised account does not allow access to your account with us. You should also tell us as soon as possible so we can try to help you keep your account secure and, if necessary, warn anyone else who could be affected.
Please note that while we seek to protect your information and maintain the security of our Services, due to the possibility of hardware or software failure, unauthorized entry or use, and other factors, we cannot guarantee the security of any information, whether online or offline. Any transmission of information is at your own risk. Please also note that any information you provide to us via e-mail is unencrypted.
Some jurisdictions have laws that give people the right to access or correct the Personal Information which a company has about them. We will honour any statutory right you may have to access or correct your Personal Information in our records, and you can e-mail such requests via https://a-ads.com/contact_us. Once we receive your request, we will let you know if an administrative fee will apply to fulfil your request, as permitted by applicable law. However, please note that even if you have a legal right to request access to information or to correct information, as permitted by applicable law, we may reject unreasonably repetitive requests that would require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or materially changing an existing practice), would jeopardise the privacy of others, or would be highly impractical to fulfil (for example, requests to access information located on backup systems).
As this Policy is part of our T&Cs, any disputes involving you and us that relate to privacy or the use of your information and that arise out of or are associated with this Policy or our Services will be subject to our T&Cs, including any provisions regarding the limitation of damages and liability, choice of law, and dispute resolution.
