5. Your rights under GDPR

Data protection in Estonia is primarily governed by the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (“GDPR”) which has been implemented into Estonian law since 2019. Under GDPR, you have a number of privacy rights concerning the use, storage, and  processing of your Personal Data (e.g., the right to delete your data). Please refer to the following rights as needed:

Right to be informed - we are publishing this Privacy Policy to keep you informed as to what we do with your Personal Data. You can ask us for Personal Data regarding you that we keep at any time. This information concerns, among other things, the data categories we process, for what purposes we process them, the origin of the data if we did not acquire them directly from you and, if applicable, the recipients to who we have sent your data.

Right of access – you have the right to request a copy of the data we hold about you.

Right of rectification – you have the right to correct inaccurate or incomplete data about you. However, please note that public wallet addresses and transactions recorded on immutable public blockchain records are not within the definition of Personal Data we would be able to correct and/or rectify for you. Your blockchain activity is your responsibility.

Right to be forgotten – you can request that the Personal Data that we hold about you be erased from our system and we will comply with this request unless we have a legitimate reason, legal requirement, and other statutory basis not to do so. Even if we can delete (erase) the Personal Data subjected to our active (ongoing) processing activities and cease its processing, we will nevertheless retain this particular Personal Data in our backup and archive storages to fulfill our statutory and other requirements. In addition, please note that public wallet addresses and transactions recorded on immutable public blockchain records are not within the definition of Personal Data we would be able to delete. Your blockchain activity is your responsibility.

Right to restriction of processing – where certain conditions apply, you can ask us to ‘block’ the processing of your Personal Data.

Right to data portability – you have the right to have the data we hold about you transferred to another organization and to receive Personal Data in a structured, commonly used format.  Please contact to find out whether we currently support the provision of  the portable file containing Personal Data we process about you

Right to object - you can object to the processing of your data by writing to at any time for reasons that arise from your special situation provided the  data processing is based on our legitimate interest or that of a third party, or where we carry out profiling, use machine learning or automated decision-making algorithms. In this case, we will no longer process your Personal Data. The latter does not apply if we are able to prove there  are compelling, defensible reasons for the processing that outweigh your interests or we require  your data to assert, exercise or defend legal claims. It also doesn’t apply to data which is on the public blockchain records which anyone can access and use for any purpose at any time.

Right to withdraw consent - you have the right to withdraw the consent you gave us with regard to the processing of  your Personal Data for certain purposes.

Right to complain - you have the right to submit a complaint to the data privacy protection authorities responsible. You can send your complaints to the supervisory authority of your country of residence.

Please contact with any questions about exercising any of the above rights. To learn more about GDPR generally, please access the website of the Estonian Data Protection Inspectorate here

6. Transfer of Personal Data

Transfers to third countries are subject to appropriate safeguards, i.e., Standard Contractual Clauses. More information on such safeguards may be obtained by you upon a prior written request sent to us, subject to your agreement to maintain confidentiality.

7. Data Integrity & Security of Processing

We take data security very seriously. The Personal Data you provide us will be protected from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, via a variety of safeguards such as encryption, digital and  physical access controls, non-disclosure agreements (NDAs), and other technical and organizational measures. However, no electronic transmission, storage, or processing of Personal Data cannot be entirely secure. We cannot guarantee that the security measures we have in place to safeguard Personal Data, or the security measures taken by data processors or third party service providers, will never be defeated or fail, or that those measures will always be sufficient or effective. Therefore, although we are committed to protecting your privacy, you should not expect that your Personal Data will always remain private or secure.

Most importantly, Sommelier is based on public blockchains intended to immutably record transactions across wide networks of computer systems located in many jurisdictions, and which are open to forensic analysis. This can lead to deanonymization and the unintentional revelation of Personal Data. Because blockchains are decentralized or third-party networks which are not controlled or operated by us, we are not able to erase, modify, or alter Personal Data from such networks.
