If you use certain Services within the GlobaliD App or the GlobaliD Site, or functionality enabled through GlobaliD SDKs and APIs, third parties may provide information to us and you in the context of those Services. These third parties include business partners, our affiliates, or publicly available sources, including the Verifications provided by our Verification Providers. We retain your data for as long as is necessary and/or required by law.
In addition to the purposes and uses described above, we use information in the following ways:
- We process Personal Data relating to GlobaliD Name holders for the purpose of rendering the GlobaliD Service, allowing GlobaliD Name holders to create and use their own portable digital identity and to build their reputation by adding Verifications to their GlobaliD Name.
- Anonymous Data: We may create Anonymous Data from the Personal Data we receive about our users. We make Personal Data into Anonymous Data by excluding information (such as your first name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this Anonymous Data to analyze usage patterns in order to make improvements to the GlobaliD Service.
We may also use your Personal Data that you Consent to allowing GlobaliD access (e.g., GlobaliD Name, public name, public description):
- To operate, maintain, and improve the GlobaliD Site, products, and Services;
- To manage your account, including to communicate with you regarding your account, if you have an account with us(or use our Services);
- To identify you when you visit our website or use our application;
- To conduct analytics;

- To send information including technical notices, updates, security alerts, and support and administrative messages;
- To process financial transactions and other permissions you initiate via our Services; and
- As further described herein.
GlobaliD does not use your data for ad targeting.
Legal Bases for Processing Information
We only collect and process Personal Data about you where we have a legal basis for doing so under applicable data protection laws. We process Personal Data in the following ways:
- With your Consent where appropriate or legally required;
- To perform a contract that you have with us;
- For our legitimate interests, including to improve our Services, optimize your experience, or market our Services;
- As required by law, such as compliance with a subpoena or similar legal process, when we believe in good faith disclosure is necessary to protect our rights or property, protect your health and safety or the health and safety of others, investigate fraud or respond to a government request.
Although the sections above describe our primary purpose in collecting your information, in many situations we have more than one purpose. For example, if you submit Personal Data to procure GlobaliD Services, we may collect your information to perform our contract with you, but we also collect your information as we have a legitimate interest in maintaining your information after your transaction is complete. As a result, our collection and processing of your information is based in different contexts upon your Consent, our need to perform a contract, our obligations under law, and/or our legitimate interest in conducting our business.
How We Share Information
In addition to the specific situations discussed elsewhere in this Policy, we disclose your Personal Data as described in the following situations:
- Affiliates and Acquisitions. We may share information with our corporate affiliates (e.g., parent company, sister companies, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control). If another company acquires, or plans to acquire, our company, business, or our assets, we will also share information with that company, including at the negotiation stage.
- Other Disclosures with Your Consent. We may ask if you would like us to share your information with other unaffiliated third parties who are not described elsewhere in this Policy.

- Other Disclosures without Your Consent. We may disclose information in response to subpoenas, warrants, or court orders, or in connection with any legal process, or to comply with relevant laws. We may also share your information in order to establish or exercise our rights, to defend against a legal claim, to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding possible illegal activities, suspected fraud, safety of person or property, or a violation of our policies, or the provision of Services by a third party intermediary.

The following additional information relates to our privacy practices:

Nonetheless, where possible we take steps to treat Personal Data using the same privacy principles that apply pursuant to the law of the country in which we first received your information. By submitting your Personal Data to us you agree to the transfer, storage and processing of your information in a country other than your country of residence including, but not necessarily limited to, the United States.
