Privacy Policy

Last Updated: December 1, 2023

Ozone Networks, Inc. d/b/a OpenSea (“OpenSea,” “we”, “us”, or “our”) is committed to protecting your privacy. We have prepared this Privacy Policy to describe to you our practices regarding the information we collect, use, and share in connection with the OpenSea and OpenSea Pro websites, mobile apps, and other services we and our affiliates provide to you (collectively, the "Service").

  1. Types of Information We Collect. We collect information about our users, as described below.
    1. Information You Provide Us.
      1. Account Information. When you create an account or use our Service, you provide us with certain information. We collect this information and other data you add to your account, such as email address, username, linked social media accounts, favorited items and watchlisted collections, and other information you provide. Your Account Information (other than your email address) will be publicly visible. Remember public content can exist elsewhere on the internet even after you remove it from your account on OpenSea.
      2. Verification Information. We may need to collect information to verify your account or identity, such as your phone number, email address or information relating to the authentication app you use.
      3. Preferences. Our Service lets you store preferences like how your content is displayed, notification settings, and favorites. We may associate these choices with your account, browser, and/or mobile device.
      4. Feedback. If you provide us with feedback or contact us, we may receive your name and contact information (such as an email address), as well as any other content included in or associated with the message you send.
      5. Other Information. We also collect information and other data at other points in our Service where you voluntarily provide it or where we state that your information is being collected.

      Additionally, like much of web3, your blockchain wallet address functions as your identity on OpenSea. Accordingly, you will need a blockchain wallet and associated wallet address to access certain aspects of the Service. We do not consider a blockchain wallet address, standing alone, to be information that identifies you. However, a blockchain wallet address may become associated with you, your user ID or information we collect about you when you use our Service.

    2. Information Collected Automatically. As you navigate through and interact with our Service, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information, including:
      1. Interactions with our Service. To provide our Service, analyze trends, enforce our Terms of Service, and make the Service more useful to you, we collect information (typically Anonymous Data) from you when you interact with our Service, including, but not limited to, your browser type or fingerprint, operating system, IP address and associated geolocation, device ID, blockchain wallet address, wallet type, actions and clickstream data, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps. We may also store this data in log files.
      2. Cookies or Other Tracking Technologies. Like many online services, we use cookies to collect information. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to analyze how users interact with our Service, make improvements to our product quality, and provide users with a more personalized experience. In addition, we use "Pixel Tags" (also referred to as clear Gifs, Web beacons, or Web bugs). Pixel Tags allow us to analyze how users find our Service, make the Service more useful to you, and tailor your experience with us to meet your particular interests and needs.
      3. Do Not Track. As there is no common understanding about what a "Do Not Track" signal is supposed to mean, we don’t respond to those signals in any particular way. See further information below regarding how you may be able to withdraw your consent for the use of certain tracking technologies like cookies and pixel tags. You may also contact us here.

      We engage with third-party services ("Third Party Services"), including Google and Amplitude, to help collect some of the information referred to above. These Third Party Services, acting on our behalf, may collect information about your use of our Service through their own cookies, Pixel Tags, or other technologies ("Usage Information"). The Third Party Services’ ability to use and share Usage Information is restricted by such Third Party Services’ terms of use and privacy policy.

    3. Information Collected from Third-Party Companies. We may receive information about you or related to you or your wallet address from service providers and other sources/companies that offer their products and/or services to us or to you, for use in conjunction with our Service, or whose products and/or services may be linked from our Service. We may add this to the data we have already collected from or about you through our Service. This information may include, for example:
      1. third-party wallet providers and partners that provide us with your blockchain wallet address and certain other information you choose to share with those wallet providers and partners;
      2. data analytics providers or vendors who provide us information related to certain blockchain wallet addresses;
      3. vendors who provide communication and identity verification services to us and which you choose to use; and
      4. other vendors who provide us information necessary to run our business or enforce our Terms of Service.
    4. Public Information. We collect data from activity and information that is publicly visible and/or accessible on blockchains or other public sources. This may include, for example, blockchain wallet addresses and information regarding purchases, sales, or transfers of NFTs, which may then be associated with other data you have provided to us.
  2. Use of Your Information.
    1. We process information about and/or related to you to run our business, provide the Service, personalize your experience on the Service, and improve the Service. Specifically, we use your information to:

      3. analyze, improve, and personalize your use and experience on the Service, including by making recommendations to you;

We will maintain and use anonymized and deidentified data in anonymized/deidentified form and not attempt to reidentify the information unless permitted by law.

    If you are a resident in the EEA/UK, please refer to Section 12, which details the legal basis we rely on for these processing activities.

In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership, your information and information about you may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company acquires our company, business, or assets, that company will possess the information collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your information and information about you as described in this Privacy Policy.
    5. Legal Rights. In our legitimate interests to run an effective business and/or as required by law, regardless of any choices you make regarding your information (as described below), OpenSea may disclose your information and information about you if it believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary: (i) in connection with any legal investigation; (ii) to comply with relevant laws or to respond to subpoenas, warrants, or other legal process served on OpenSea; (iii) to protect or defend the rights or property of OpenSea or users of the Service; and/or (iv) to investigate or assist in preventing any violation or potential violation of the law, this Privacy Policy, or our Terms of Service.
