Brave Payments: Privacy Policy

BRAVE SOFTWARE INTERNATIONAL SEZC

Last updated on May 24, 2018.

This privacy policy describes the information practices of the Brave Payments service for publishers and content creators. This service is operated by Brave Software International SEZC, a Cayman Islands company (“us”, “we”, “Brave”, etc.). This privacy policy only describes the Brave Payments service for publishers and content creators. It doesn’t apply to the Brave web browser or other websites.

Infrastructure & Partners

The site is hosted on infrastructure operated by Brave, as well as infrastructure operated by Amazon, Heroku (a Salesforce company), and Fastly on our behalf. Fastly’s infrastructure is designed to be as close to you as possible — probably in the same country as you, though this is not guaranteed. The rest of this infrastructure is located in the United States, which is where information is processed and stored.

To redeem tokens, you must connect your Brave Payments account to Uphold. When you do so, we interact with Uphold. They give us comprehensive information about your account, most of which we ignore. We retain whether your account is in good standing, the list of currencies you have configured, and your preferred currency. We occasionally communicate with Uphold in other ways in order to ensure that your account on the service works correctly and that you are able to redeem tokens.

Overview

The service allows you to receive and redeem tokens sent to you by people who view your site or other content. To do so, you must create an account on the site. You are not obliged to use the service, but there is no other way to receive and redeem these tokens.

Your email address is required — you use it to log into the site and to receive information about the status of your account. Your phone number is used as an alternative means of verifying control of your account. We keep your name, email address, and phone number private. This information is retained until you change it. You can also delete this information along with your entire account by contacting support+publishers@basicattentiontoken.org .

When you wish to demonstrate your ownership of a site, we request information from your web server or DNS provider to confirm your claim. The list of confirmed sites and other online accounts is public information. When you wish to demonstrate control of another channel, we contact the service which operates that channel to confirm your claim.

Security

To identify & prevent fraud and to protect the integrity of the service, we keep records of interaction with the service. These records include the IP address of the request and information about the active account. We also use these records to maintain the reliability and performance of the service.

Children

Children under the age of 13 are not permitted to use the service, or send Brave any other information. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has interacted with the service, please contact privacy@basicattentiontoken.org . In that case, we will do our best to remove all related records.

Privacy Policy Changes

When we add features to the service, we work hard to ensure that their privacy implications are clear before you turn them on. Whenever we make a material change to the information collected through the service or how we use it we’ll update this policy. When this policy changes, we’ll announce it to let you know. We hope you’ll find any changes agreeable, but if you’re not comfortable with changes to the info we collect or how we use it, we understand your choice to stop using the service.

Contact

We are always interested in hearing and responding to questions and concerns at twitter.com/attentiontoken and at github.com/brave-intl . More in-depth conversations can be had at community.brave.com . You can reach us directly at privacy@basicattentiontoken.org if you’d like to know what information we have about you, or if you think we have incorrect information about you and you’d like to update it. If you are unsatisfied with the ways that we treat information about you, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.

The Basic Attention Token is the new token for the digital advertising industry. It pays publishers for their content and users for their attention, while providing advertisers with more in return for their ads.
