Copyright notice

GDPR Compliance

Eqvista respects and complies with the EU’s General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR).

Some of the key ways we comply with GDPR regulations are:

Right to Access

Users can request confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning them is being processed, where and for what purpose. Further, we shall provide a copy of the personal data, free of charge, in an electronic format.

Right to be forgotten

Once we have compared your (the subject’s) rights to “the public interest in the availability of the data”, we may delete your personal data where you have requested this.

Data Portability

We allow you to receive the personal data concerning you, which we will provide in a ‘commonly used and machine readable format.’ You have the right to transmit that data to another ‘controller.’

Privacy by Design

We implement appropriate technical and organisational measures, in an effective way, in order to meet the requirements of this Regulation and protect the rights of data subjects. We hold and process only the data absolutely necessary for the completion of our duties (data minimisation), as well as limiting the access to personal data to those needing to act out the processing.

Usage of Data

Personal data will be kept in a fair way and will be collected for the specific purpose only.

The data subject (the user) must be identified only for as long as necessary unless its collected data is kept for historical, statistical or scientific research purposes.

The identity and the contact details of the data controller and of the Data Protection Officer (a new requirement set by the GDPR) will be disclosed to users.

Users would be told why their personal data is being collected.

Users would be told who will receive their collected personal data.

The data controller will specify if they intend to transfer the user’s data out of the EU.

Users have a right to request update or removal of their personal data

If a user’s data is going to be transferred out of the EU, the data controller will notify where the data is going and the level of data protection that country has.

Blockchain and GDPR

The use of the Company’s distributed ledger and blockchain technology is restricted for users in the European Union, as all data is hashed into the ledger, and does not allow for data to be forgotten. The user is responsible for adhering to this policy, and the Company is neither liable or responsible for these restrictions. European Union clients can freely use our system without block-chain service.

Blockchain General

We, Eqvista, use Blockchains to solve compliance challenges and to store data on a distributed ledger. The distributed ledger is accessible to everyone, and users will be able to view their company data on the blockchain.  Blockchain allows digital information to be distributed but not copied. You agree and authorize the Company to charge you for all services and products purchased through the Blockchain shares platform and through the payment method provided. All services and products provided by the company, including the price and availability of services, are subject to change without prior notice and at any time. The Company reserves the right to limit the availability or continuance of any service or product, to ban any user from making a purchase, impose restrictions and conditions of our services or refuse to provide service to any user without prior notice. You are responsible for paying all applicable fees set forth in our pricing terms and any applicable taxes associated with the service, in a timely manner with a valid payment method. You are responsible for all charges incurred through your account (including by anyone who uses your account), and you represent that you have the legal right to use the payment methods submitted.

The Company may provide its users with notice—including changes or modifications in the Company’s terms and agreements—by email, regular mail, postings or through our distributed ledger to your account. The user agrees that these notices will be deemed as given twenty four hours after the email or notice by distributed ledger is sent, unless the Company is notified the email is invalid. In such cases that notices are sent by mail, the user agrees that these notices will be deemed as given 5 days after the mail is posted.

The Company reserves the rights to choose and determine the form of notice given to the user, provided that the user may choose to opt out of a given form of notice as defined in these terms. They can do so by notification to the Company in writing, email, or through their user account. The Company will not be responsible for any automatic email address filtering by your network provider, and the user is responsible for checking their email received.

Modifications of terms

Eqvista reserves the right, at its sole discretion, to modify, change, alter, add or remove portions of our terms of service at any time. It is your responsibility and You agree to review to these terms and posting of changes from time to time. The continued use of our website after the posting of any changes means that you accept and agree to these changes.

The user agrees that the Company may exercise the rights with the user data without liability to the Company or its third parties. In connection to the user data, the user will be solely responsible for the sharing of the data and any consequences thereunder, and the Company will take no responsibility nor liability for this.

When records are kept in such manner, a clearly legible paper form prepared from or by means of the information storage device, method, or 1 or more electronic networks or databases (including 1 or more distributed electronic networks or databases) shall be valid and admissible in evidence, and accepted for all other purposes, to the same extent as an original paper record of the same information would have been, provided the paper form accurately portrays the record.

Every share transaction is immutably stored in the blockchain technology. Each transaction is cryptographically signed and time stamped. Every stockholder could be directly registered on the blockchain.

Any corporation shall convert any records so kept into clearly legible paper form upon the request of any person entitled to inspect such records. You can simply discontinue use of our distributed ledger system and continue to use the captable to maintain the overview of yours shares. Please bear in mind that every entry into blockchain technology is immutable.

Upon being designated as an Administrator, each person will be deemed to agree to the obligations of an Administrator Account.
