Users under the age of 18
Carbon is not designed for users under the age of 18 and we do not knowingly collect personal data from users under the age of 18. If you are under the age of 18, please do not use the Carbon website under any circumstance. If you believe we may have any data from a user under 18, please contact us. Carbon content uploaded by its users may not suitable for users under 18.
Information We Collect About You and How We Collect It
The information collected by Carbon is dependent on the registration method chosen by the user. Users creating accounts with MetaMask will not be required to provide any personal identifiable data. Users registering via social login methods such as Facebook, Twitter or Google will be required to connect to Carbon via those services and hence their account data on those services may be imported into Carbon for authentication purposes.
Personal data posted publicly on Carbon is at the discretion of the user. We do not collect personal data for any internal use or to be provided to third parties. What a user posts on their Carbon social feed, is publicly viewable.
Private data such as direct messages are not viewable by public users, nor by the Carbon team, and hence the encrypted data cannot be used in any way. Carbon do not hold the keys to decrypt any encrypted private data. The data posted by a user on their public social profile will be viewable to all website visitors, with or without a registered Carbon account.
You may request deletion of your Carbon account at any time, in which case all of your Carbon data and your Carbon account itself will be deleted. If you delete your Carbon account, copies of your data may remain viewable in cached and archived pages or might have been copied by other Carbon users.
Carbon collects cumulative data from all users for analytics purposes, intended to improve the Carbon platform speed and functionality. This data is not personal or identifiable. For example we collect statistical information on the number of users on the platform and number of visits to Carbon groups. This data cannot be used to identify any user or their Carbon activity. The analytical data will not be provided to any third parties. Carbon uses its own in-built analytics tool. We do not use Google Analytics or any other third party service for our analytics. Carbon does not collect user IP addresses or location data. CloudFlare may record IP information for DDOS protection purposes and you can read about their policies at https://support.cloudflare.com
For MetaMask account users, Carbon uses no cookies or other trackers other than those required to embed or play YouTube videos, those used by CloudFlare for DDOS protection. Carbon does not track its users in any way. MetaMask users may disable cookies in your browser settings and continue to use Carbon. For users with an email account registration, Carbon uses some cookies to assist with session data.
Disclosure of Your Information
We may disclose cumulative, non-identifiable information about our user base without restriction.
Carbon will not provide personal data to any individual or business unless compelled by a court order issued by an Australian court.
Carbon has taken steps and offer various options to ensure the security of your public and private data. All information you provide to us is stored on our secure servers. Decentralised data storage will be stored on the Ethereum blockchain. We do not store any encryption keys on our servers and thus, encrypted private data is not accessible and cannot be decrypted via our servers. Users that sign in or connect with external services such as Twitter, Facebook or Google must rely on the security of those services in respect to the access of their Carbon account. As an example, if a user connects to Carbon via Twitter, and their Twitter account is compromised, their Carbon account may also be compromised. Users valuing the highest level of security are encouraged to use the MetaMask user authentication option.
The safety and security of user data also falls on the user. Most information on the Carbon website is publicly viewable, as is the nature of public social posts. Users are responsible for safeguarding any login credentials or keys for account access.
Carbon will do our best to protect your data but we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to our website. Any transmission of personal information is at your own risk. Carbon are not responsible for any circumvention of privacy or security measures contained on Carbon.
