Privacy Policy

Introduction

We take privacy very seriously. In fact, it is the entire purpose of our company. Please read the following to learn more about our privacy policy.

  • Simply put, we do not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with other people or companies.
  • When you list your confidential information on this exchange, no underlying data is transferred. Only metadata (information about your data), is uploaded. The types of information stored in the metadata include: counts, list of available identifier fields, list of available non-identifying fields, and your description of the data set. It is important to remember all of your data assets stay within your own computing environment.
  • During the execution of a trade between data owners, a highly-specialized, cryptographic procedure takes place. Your underlying data asset undergoes a transformation within your data center. Only anonymized data is transferred to a secure escrow for mapping. An escrow holds your anonymized tokens during the match process and is irrecoverably purged immediately following completion of the exchange. We do not store any residual of an exchanged identities.
