This Data Privacy Notice details important information regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information collected on the websites located at https://forta.org/, https://explorer.forta.network/, and https://docs.forta.network/ and any other applications, tools, products, services, blogs, forums and/or materials (collectively, “Services”) offered from time to time by Forta. Forta provides this Data Privacy Notice to help you understand how your personal information is used by us and your choices regarding our use of it. By using the Services, you agree that we can collect, use, disclose, and process your information as described in this Data Privacy Notice.

If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of this Data Privacy Notice. In some cases, if we make significant changes, we may give you additional notice by adding a statement to our homepage. We encourage you to review this Data Privacy Notice periodically to stay informed about our practices.

“Personal Data” has the meaning given in the European Union (“EU”) data protection legislation and any other applicable data laws in any other relevant jurisdiction, and includes any information relating to an identifiable individual (such as name, address, email address, date of birth, passport details or other national identifier, driving licence, national insurance or social security number, income, employment information, tax identifier and residence, account numbers, and electronic information).
Forta is responsible for the processing of your personal data (the “Curator”). Where we use the term “we”, “us” and “our” in this Data Privacy Notice, we are referring to Forta. Forta is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.
This notice (available at https://forta.org/) and any other documents referred to in it sets out the basis on which any Personal Data we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. When you provide us with your Personal Data, we act as a “data controller”. In simple terms, this means that:
Please read the following carefully to understand our views and practices regarding your Personal Data and how we will treat it.
By visiting and/or using the Services, you are accepting and consenting to the practices described in this privacy notice.
The Personal Data collected about you will help us to provide you with a better service and facilitate our business relationship. We may combine Personal Data that you provide us with Personal Data that we collected from, or about you, in some circumstances. This will include Personal Data collected in an online and offline context.
We will collect and process Personal Data about you from a number of sources, including:
We process your Personal Data for the following purposes:
It is necessary to perform our contract with you to:
It is necessary for compliance with an applicable legal or regulatory obligation to which we are subject to:
For our legitimate interests or those of a third party:
We only rely on these interests where we have considered that, on balance, our legitimate interests are not overridden by your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms.
We monitor communications where the law requires us to do so. We will also monitor where we are required to do so to comply with our regulatory rules and practices and, where we are permitted to do so, to protect our business and the security of our systems.
We share your Personal Data, for the purposes of:
We share your Personal Data with tax authorities:
We share your Personal Data with our lawyers, auditors and other professional advisors for purposes of:
In exceptional circumstances, we will share your Personal Data with competent regulatory, prosecuting and other governmental agencies or litigation counterparties, in any country or territory.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Services; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorized access.
Unless otherwise indicated, you should assume that we require the Personal Data for business and/or compliance purposes.
Some of the Personal Data we request is necessary for us to provide our product or perform our Services with you and if you do not wish to provide us with this Personal Data, it will affect our ability to provide our Services to you.
We may transfer your Personal Data to other members in the network and related parties and to third party service providers, including outside of the EU and EEA, which do not have similarly strict data protection privacy laws.
Where we transfer Personal Data to our associates or service providers, we have put in place data transfer agreements and safeguards.
Please contact us if you would like to know more about these agreements or receive a copy of them. Please see below for our contact details.
We do not generally rely on obtaining your consent to process your Personal Data.
If we do, for example in respect of processing your data in respect of marketing purposes, you have the right to ask us not to process your Personal Data at any time. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us at email@example.com.
We keep your Personal Data for as long as it is required by us for our legitimate business purposes, to perform our Services and/or contractual obligations, or where longer, such longer period as is required by law or regulatory obligations which apply to us. Some Personal Data will be retained after your relationship with us ends. As a general principle, we do not retain your Personal Data for longer than we need it. We will usually delete your Personal Data (at the latest) when there is no longer any legal or regulatory requirement or business purpose for retaining your Personal Data.
We will not take decisions producing legal effects concerning you, or otherwise significantly affecting you, based solely on automated processing of Personal Data, unless we have considered the proposed processing in a particular case and concluded in writing that it meets the requirements of EU data protection legislation and other applicable laws.
You have certain data protection rights, including:
You also have the right in some circumstances to request for us to “port” your Personal Data in a portable, re-usable format to other organisations (where this is possible).
Our Services may, from time to time, contain links to and from the Services of our partner networks, third-party services, social networks, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these services, please note that these services have their own privacy policies and that we do not accept any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these services.
We take your concerns very seriously. We encourage you to bring it to our attention if you have any concerns about our processing your Personal Data.
