Data protection is of a particularly high priority for GetUpdates.co, a company duly registered at the Commercial register of the Registry Agency in the Republic of Bulgaria, with UIC 204869023, registered seat and address of management: 33 General Eduard I. Totleben blvd., 1606, Sofia, Bulgaria (“GetUpdates”) and the use of our Internet page https://www.getupdates.co (“Website”) is possible without any indication of personal data. However, if a data subject wants to use special enterprise services via our Website, or the ICO subdomains we maintain for our clients, processing of personal data could become necessary.
As a controller for the data collected via our Website, and as a processor for the data collected via the ICO subdomains of our clients, GetUpdates has implemented numerous technical and organizational measures to ensure the most complete protection of the personal data processed.

Any Data subject may, at any time, contact our Data Protection Officer directly with all questions and suggestions concerning data protection.
Our Website contains information that enables a quick electronic contact. If a Data subject contacts us via the contact form of our Website, the Personal data transmitted by the Data subject, e.g. name and email address, are automatically stored and processed by GetUpdates in his capacity of a Controller of Personal data.
Such Personal data is transmitted on a voluntary basis by a Data subject to the Controller. It is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the Data subject. There is no transfer of this Personal data to third parties.
GetUpdates.co provides software and maintains the subdomains of its clients for their projects. Thus, if a Data subject provides any data on such a subdomain, the Personal data transmitted by the Data subject, are automatically stored and processed by GetUpdates.co's client, i.e. the Controller of Personal data through GetUpdates.co in his capacity of a Processor of Personal data.
The Personal data necessary for the registration of the Data subject to the subdomain of a specific client of GetUpdates.co may vary, but it mainly consists of:
Phase 1 – Registration:
Hereinabove Personal data, for both Phase 1 and Phase 2, is transmitted on a voluntary basis by a Data subject via the relevant subdomain. Thus, both the Controller – GetUpdates's client and the Processor – GetUpdates have access to and process those data.
The registration of the Data subject (Phase 1), with the voluntary indication of Personal data, is intended to enable the Controller to offer the Data subject contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question.
After the Registration is completed a confirmation e-mail is sent to the Data subject in the double opt-in procedure. This confirmation e-mail is used to prove whether the owner of the e-mail address is authorized to make a registration.
Some of our clients’ subdomains also provide for social media registration. If a Data subject makes a registration through third-party social media sites like Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn, for example, we will only gain access to the name and email of the Data subject.
The verification of the Data subject (Phase 2), with the voluntary indication of Personal data, is intended to meet the Anti-Money Laundering (AML) requirements for prevention the use of the projects and token sales for money laundering and terrorist financing. All such data is used for the purpose of verification only.
Although, neither the Controller, not the Processor are required to perform AML measures, it is possible that in the future AML obliged entities might be broadened to include companies performing and token sale, thus the good practices require the verification of buyer’s identity and residency and Controllers/our clients have decided to perform Know Your Client (“KYC”) procedures. Regarding this, each Controller, at its own discretion, may decide to use an independent KYC Provider, which will be involved in the process and will be handling with the KYC forms and the token buyer’s data. KYC providers are appointed only by the Controller at its own discretion, and the latter can only be held liable for the organizational and technical measures those KYC providers apply regarding the protection of Data Subjects’ Personal data. GetUpdates.co has no contractual relations with any of its clients’ KYC providers and cannot be held liable for any of their actions.
On the subdomains of our clients Data subjects are given the opportunity to subscribe to a newsletter by ticking the relevant box. Data subjects may at any time revoke a given consent and for this purpose a corresponding link is found in each newsletter or email including a newsletter.
The non-provision of the Personal data would have the consequence that the service requested by the Data subject could not be provided, i.e. the Data subject would not be able to contact us via our Website: https://www.getupdates.co (Section III) or would not be able to make a registration on the subdomains of our clients or get verified and purchase tokens from our clients (Section IV).
Personal data is stored up until the termination of user’s account. After that, the corresponding data is routinely deleted, as long as it is no longer necessary for the fulfilment of the contract or there is no other legal ground on processing the data.
GetUpdates will not disclose any Personal data to a third party. Our clients though, i.e. the Controllers may disclose the Personal data of the Data subjects to other processors, for example KYC providers, Еmail providers, SMS providers.
