Data which we collect from you may be stored and processed in and transferred to countries outside of the European Union (EU). For example, as described above, we might share information with our group companies, some of which are located outside the EU. This could also occur if our servers are located in a country outside the EU or one of our service providers, as defined below, is situated in a country outside the EU. This transfer might involve significant risks for the data involved. To mitigate it, Hashdex will only transfer data outside the EU where it is compliant with data protection legislation and the means of transfer provides adequate safeguards in relation to your data.

Such data includes the number and frequency of your visits to this Website, information regarding websites accessed immediately before and after your visit to this Website, your internet browser type, your preferences on this Website, your IP address and your device characteristics. We use this data to (1) remember your information so you will not have to re-enter it; (2) track and understand how you use and interact with the Website; (3) personalize your visit to the Website; (4) measure the usability of the Website and the effectiveness of our communications; and (5) otherwise manage and enhance the Website.

We use third-party web analytics services on this Website, such as those of Google Analytics. The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons to help us analyze how visitors use this Website. The information collected through these means (including IP addresses) is disclosed to these analytics providers, who use data to evaluate use of this Website. Google Analytics is a service of Google LLC in the USA (Google) (www.google.com), with which we can measure and evaluate the use of the Website (not personal). Permanent cookies that Google sets are also used for this purpose. Google does not receive any personal information from us (and does not retain any IP addresses), but it can track your use of the Website, combine this information with data from other websites that you have visited and which are also tracked by Google, and use this information for its own purposes (e.g. controlling advertising). If you have registered yourself with Google, Google also knows you. The processing of your personal information by Google then takes place under the responsibility of Google in accordance with its data protection provisions. Google only informs us how our Website is used (no information about you personally).
We may use plugins (also social plug-ins, social media plug-ins or social share plug-ins) on this Website. You can recognize plugins by the corresponding network logo or by the "Like", "Share" or "Re-Tweet" buttons on our Website. By clicking on the plugin, you can share content from our Website on social networks. The plugin notifies the social network that your IP address is visiting our Website. This can happen even if you are not logged into the social network or are not a member of the social network. If you are logged into the social network, the social network can assign your surfing behavior directly to your profile there. The social network is responsible for the processing of your personal information transmitted with the plugin. We do not obtain precise knowledge of the content and scope of the transmitted data and its use by the social network and do not exercise any influence over it. As a rule, this involves the following data: website visited, data transmitted by your browser (IP address, browser type and version, operating system, time) and your identification number in the social network, provided you are registered there as a user. If you share content via a plugin, you are not authorized to speak on our behalf. These are your own expressions for which we are not responsible and liable.
