Privacy Policy

Effective 2020-01-18

Thank you for choosing to be part of our community at MintPond(“we”, “us”, or “our”). We are committed to protecting your personal information and your right to privacy.

This privacy policy applies to all information collected through our website (such as mintpond.com), and/or any related services, sales, marketing or events (we refer to them collectively in this privacy policy as the "Services").

1. What Information Do We Collect?

MintPond is an anonymous mining pool designed to keep its data as open as possible so that it can be publicly audited while also making sure the information disclosed is not personal information. The limited collection of personal information makes it necessary to make more non-personal data publicly accessible in order to facilitate our Services. This publicly available information is uniquely identified by a cryptocurrency wallet address.

Personal information you disclose

Since we are an anonymous mining pool, we do not actively collect personal information such as name, address, contact information, and banking information.

We collect email addresses if you provide it to us. Email addresses we collect will only be used for the purpose of providing the associated Services such as email notifications.

We may collect passwords provided to us. Passwords we collect will only be used for the purpose of providing the associated Services such as changing minimum payout.

Any personal information that you voluntarily provide to us may be used to improve our Services.

Information automatically collected

We automatically collect certain information when you visit, connect to, or otherwise use our Services. The information collected does not reveal your specific identity (like name or contact information) but may include device and usage information such as your IP Address, browser, operating system, language preferences, country, and information about how and when you use our Services.

This information is used to maintain the security and operation of our Services and for our internal analytics and reporting purposes.

Pool activities and transactions

Pool activities related to mining such as hashrate and worker names as well as transactions such as payouts to wallet addresses will be collected and are publicly visible. All publicly visible information is identified by wallet address.

2. How We Use Your Information?

3. Will Your Personal Information Be Shared with Anyone?

Personal information will not be shared with any 3rd party with only some exceptions.

4. How Long Do We Keep Your Information?

Personal information will only be kept as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy policy, unless a longer retention period is required (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements).

5. How Do We Keep Your Information Safe?

We have implemented appropriate technical and organization security measures designed to protect the security of any personal information we process. However, please also remember that we cannot guarantee that the internet itself is 100% secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal information, transmission of personal information to and from our Services is at your own risk. You should only access the services within a secure environment.

6. Do We Collect Information From Minors?

We do not knowingly solicit data from or market to children under 18 years of age. By using the Services, you represent that you are at least 18 years of age or that you are the parent or guardian of such a minor and consent to such minor dependent's use of the Services. If we learn that personal information from users less than 18 years of age has been collected, we will deactivate the account and take reasonable measures to promptly delete such data from our records.

7. Do We Make Updates to This Policy?

We may update this privacy policy from time to time. Updates may be made with or without notice. It is your responsibility to keep updated on the latest privacy policy. We encourage you to review this privacy policy frequently to be informed of how we are protecting your information.
