1.2 These categories of personal data include information that you provide to us, or information that our website and other systems collect about you.
2.1 By using our website and the website's functionalities the abovementioned categories of personal data may be processed. We may use your personal data if we have your consent or another legally permitted reason applies. These include to fulfil a contract with you, when we have a legal duty to comply with, or when it is in our legitimate business interest to use your personal data. We can only rely on our legitimate business interest, if it is fair and reasonable to do so. We may process your personal data for the following purposes:
Via our website you can create an account on our online platform. This account allows you to buy, sell and store cryptocurrencies (in your Wallet). To create an account, we will ask you to fill in your name, e-mail address, birth date, password and nationality. In the event of suspicion of fraud or misuse of our website we may hand over personal data to the entitled authorities. When creating an account, we process your personal data for the performance of your agreement with LiteBit.
Via our website you can buy and sell cryptocurrencies. To do so you need to log in to your online account using your e-mail address and password. After the verification of your payment method you are asked to fill in the address of your (cryptocurrency) wallet. In some cases, while buying and/or selling cryptocurrencies you may be asked to proceed to the verification procedure as part of our security measures. When buying and/or selling cryptocurrencies we process your personal data for the performance of your agreement with LiteBit.
At LiteBit we have a verification procedure in place as part of our security measures for buying, selling and/or storing cryptocurrencies. In order to complete this verification procedure we need your name, email address, date of birth, country of residence and telephone number. You also need to provide us with a copy of your passport or ID-card and address details. If deemed necessary you need to provide us with more verification documents. When proceeding through the verification procedure we process your personal data in order to comply with a legal duty.
Customers and transactions are monitored in order to prevent anti-money laundering and financing of terrorism. When monitoring, we process your personal data in order to comply with a legal duty.
At LiteBit you can set a price alert to be notified when the price for a specific coin reaches a set threshold. We will send this notification to the e-mail address that you provided us. When setting price alerts, we process your personal data with your consent, which can be withdrawn at any time.
If you have any questions relating to for instance an order or cryptocurrencies in general, you can either call, email or chat with us. You can also contact us via our social media channels or by filling in our contact form. To answer a question that is sent via the contact form, we will process your name and e-mail address.

We may further use your information for the following purposes:
When processing your personal information for these purposes, we process your personal data on account of a legal duty and/or legitimate business interest.
2.2 We may from time to time review information about you held in our systems – including the contents of and other information related to your email and other communication with us – for compliance and business-protection purposes as described above. This may include reviews for the purposes of disclosure of information relevant to litigation and/or reviews of records relevant to internal or external regulatory or criminal investigations. To the extent permitted by applicable law these reviews will be conducted in a reasonable and proportionate way and will be approved at an appropriate level of management. They may ultimately involve disclosure of your information to governmental agencies and litigation counterparties as described below. Your emails and other communications may also occasionally be accessed by persons other than the members of staff with whom they are exchanged for ordinary business management purposes (for example, if necessary, when a staff member is out of the office or isn’t an employee of LiteBit anymore).
2.3 We will only process your personal information if this is necessary for the purposes described above, and then only where we have concluded that our processing does not prejudice you or your privacy in a way that would override our legitimate interest in pursuing those purposes. In exceptional circumstances we may also be required by law to disclose or otherwise process your personal information. We will tell you, when we ask you to provide information about yourself, if providing the requested information is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation or, on the other hand, if it is purely voluntary. If it is voluntary there will be no implications if you decline to provide the information. Otherwise you should assume that we need the information for our business or compliance purposes (as described above). If you are uncertain as to LiteBit's need for information that we request from you, please contact the LiteBit representative asking for the information, or Contact us (see below), with your query.
As a rule, we store your personal data for as long as necessary for the purpose for which the data were collected, as described in this Statement. After the retention period is finished or when the data is no longer necessary for the purpose for which the data were collected, the personal data will be deleted.
LiteBit has a legal obligation to retain personal data used for identification, verification, research activities and notifications to the FIU for a period of 5 years after the business relationship has been ended (Article 33 (3) Wwft, Article 34 Wwft). Data regarding transactions will be kept by LiteBit for a period of 7 years after the latest relevant calendar year (pursuant to Article 52 of the Dutch General Tax Act).
4.1 We may disclose your personal data where we have obtained your consent or where it is reasonably necessary for the various purposes set out above:
4.2 These disclosures may involve transferring your personal information overseas. If you are dealing with us within the European Economic Area (or the UK, after it has left the European Economic Area), you should be aware that this may include transfers to countries outside the European Economic Area / UK, which do not have similarly strict data privacy laws. In those cases, where we transfer personal data to other members of the LiteBit group or our service providers, we will ensure that our arrangements with them are governed by data transfer agreements or mechanisms, designed to ensure that your personal information is protected on the same level (including, where appropriate, under an agreement on terms approved for this purpose by the European Commission). Please contact us (see below) if you would like to know whether any such agreements are in place or, if so, to see a copy.
We take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data. We take the following measures in particular:
This Statement is not applicable to third-party websites connected to this website through links. We cannot guarantee that these third parties will handle your personal data in a secure and careful manner. We recommend that you read these websites' privacy statements before making use of these websites.

We adhere to the legal deadlines regarding the execution of the request. This means that generally a request will be processed within one month. This period can be extended to two months if it is considered a complex request. You will be notified when the period is extended.
In certain cases, if legally permitted, we may deny your request. We will inform you about the reason for denying your request.
