Privacy Policy

Last updated June 16, 2017.

Qchain respects the privacy and information of visitors to our website. We support online privacy and access to transparent disclosures regarding how your online information is stored and used. This privacy policy has been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their "Personally Identifiable Information" ("PII") is being used online. Personally Identifiable Information, as described in United States privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect, or otherwise handle your PII in accordance with our website.

Collection and Use of Information

In general, you can visit the Qchain website without telling us who you are or revealing any information about yourself. We collect information from you when you subscribe to a newsletter or enter information on our site. We may use the information you provide when signing up for our newsletter to send periodic emails regarding Qchain and its products and services. We may receive a confirmation when you open an email from Qchain. We may collect information you choose to provide when contacting us. We or service providers acting on our behalf may collect information about Qchain products and services that you use and how you use them. This may include information that identifies you and aggregate data that does not identify you.

Cookies

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer's local storage through your web browser (if you allow) that enables the site's or service provider's systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. Information about cookies is available at www.allaboutcookies.org. We may use cookies for website security operations and to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. We may also use trusted third-party services that track this information on our behalf. We do not control the use of such third-party cookies or the resulting information, and we are not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties. If you do not wish to receive cookies from the Qchain website, you can configure your web browser to not store cookies.

Third-party Disclosure

We do not transfer to outside parties your Personally Identifiable Information unless we provide users with advance notice. This does not include website hosting partners and other parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or serving our users, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release information when its release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect ours or others' rights, property, or safety. We may disclose non-PII, such as aggregate web traffic statistics, to affiliates and third parties.

Third-party Links

Occasionally, at our discretion, we may include or offer third-party products or services on our website. These third-party sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites. Nonetheless, we seek to protect the integrity of our site and welcome any feedback about these sites.

California Online Privacy Protection Act (CalOPPA)

CalOPPA is the first state law in the nation to require commercial websites and online services to post a privacy policy. The law's reach stretches well beyond California to require any person or company in the United States (and conceivably the world) that operates websites collecting Personally Identifiable Information from California consumers to post a conspicuous privacy policy on its website stating exactly the information being collected and those individuals or companies with whom it is being shared.

Pursuant to CalOPPA, we implement the following:

  • Users can visit our website anonymously.
  • We include a link to our privacy policy on our home page or on the first significant page after entering our website.
  • Our privacy policy link includes the word 'Privacy' and can easily be found on the page specified above.
  • You will be notified of any privacy policy changes on our privacy policy page.
  • You can change your personal information by emailing us.

Do Not Track (DNT)

We honor Do Not Track signals when a Do Not Track browser mechanism is in place. It is also important to note that we do not allow third-party behavioral tracking.

Children Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA)

When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under the age of 13 years old, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the United States' consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children's privacy and safety online. Pursuant to COPPA, we do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old. All Qchain websites, products, and services are directed to individuals who are at least 18 years old.
