It has to be noted that Coinvertit is a platform that offers buying, selling, trading and storing virtual currencies. Trading virtual currencies take place on the blockchains which are decentralized platforms for virtual assets. Blockchain is a system in which a record of transactions made in bitcoin or another cryptocurrency are maintained across several computers that are linked in a peer-to-peer network. By design, a blockchain is inherently resistant to modification of the data. Therefore Data cannot be modified or deleted, since there are thousands or tens of thousands of servers involved, data is dispersed among several computers all around the world in an encrypted version.
If you trade virtual currencies you agree that your Personal Data may be collected, stored, processed and that you will not be able to delete it or invoke the right to be forgotten. Your data however is anonymized. Note that also encrypted personal data that is your e.g. crypto wallet address with Coinvertit can still be traced back to a person if enough effort is put into it by experts or someone holds the key to decryption. With trading virtual assets via Coinvertit you expressly agree to give your Personal Data on the (public) blockchain that these Data (even though encrypted) cannot be deleted and that Personal Data may be transferred outside European territory.
You acknowledge and expressly agree that by the nature of the technology it is not possible to delete personal data from the blockchain and invoke the right to be forgotten. You also agree that by the nature of the technology it is not possible to keep personal data within the EU borders.
