4. Cookies and Similar Technology
When you access NYDIG online services, we, or third parties we hire to track how our website is used, may place small data files called “cookies” on your computer, mobile phone, or other online access device. Cookies are pieces of data stored on your device that are assigned by a web server to the browser on your device. When you return to a site you have visited before, your browser gives this data back to the server so that we can recognize your device.
A “session cookie” may be sent to your computer or other access device when you login to NYDIG online services. This type of cookie recognizes you if you visit multiple pages on a site during the same session, so that you do not need to be prompted for your password on each page. Once you log out or close your browser, this cookie expires and no longer has any effect. “Persistent” or longer-lasting cookies can be used for other purposes, such as to record user experience preferences when you use a website. These cookies do not expire once you log out or close your browser. You are free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may interfere with your use of NYDIG online services.
We and our third party service providers may also use technologies similar to cookies to track your interaction with NYDIG online services. Some of these technologies include web beacons, pixels, tags, and Flash objects. As with cookies, you are free to decline such technologies if your browser permits. You should refer to your browser’s instructions to remove cached history and images from your device. Deleting or disabling cookies will not remove Flash objects. You should refer to Adobe’s website https://www.adobe.com for more information on how to disable these objects.
NYDIG and the third parties who assist in operating NYDIG online services do not respond differently or limit their practices under the terms of this policy when you access those online services with a browser that uses a “do not track” signal or similar mechanism.
5. Storage and Protection of Personal Information
We maintain administrative, technical, and physical safeguards that are designed to protect the privacy and security of your personal information. In order to help secure personal information collected from you as a NYDIG online services user, including sensitive financial data, the information is protected by secure socket layer (SSL) encryption when it is exchanged between your web browser and NYDIG online services.
After receiving your information, we employ commercially reasonable website security and customer verification procedures to protect your data. We store your personal information and user-specific settings and preferences using commercially standard database security software. User passwords and other sensitive information are saved in encrypted form to prevent unauthorized access or disclosure and accidental loss, alteration, or destruction. We regularly review our operational and business practices for compliance with corporate policies and procedures governing the security, confidentiality, and quality of our information. We require all of our employees, contractors, and other third parties to protect confidential information as a condition of doing business with us, and our business practices limit the use and disclosure of such information, including personal information, to authorized persons, processes, and transactions.
You play a critical role in protecting your information by maintaining up-to-date online security protections. Steps you take to ensure the security of your computer or other online access device, computer passwords, and other personal identifier authentication mechanisms are key components for the protection of your personal information.
Notwithstanding the steps that you and we take to protect your information, the internet is not a fully secure environment, and we cannot ensure or warranty the security of any information transmitted to or generated by NYDIG in connection with NYDIG online services. There is no guarantee that information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed by breach of any of our administrative, technical, physical, or other operational safeguards.
6. Suspicious Email
It is our policy not to email you or send you electronic communications to request non-public personal information or account information (such as a username or password). If you receive an unsolicited email or other electronic communication that appears to be from NYDIG but you suspect may be from another source and might be fraudulent, please do not open or respond to this communication, and instead email us at nyd[email protected] to ensure the safety of your account.
