Privacy policy

1. Introduction

This privacy policy outlines what Personal Data Layers App (referred to as "we," "us," or "our") collects, why we collect it, how we process and use it, and the data privacy rights you have as a user of the Layers App.

At the end of this policy, you will find our Cookie Policy, providing information about Layers App use of cookies.

2. Layers

  • Layers App is a hybrid application that runs on centralized (MongoDB, Digital Ocean) and decentralized (IPFS, Filecoin, and Public Blockchains) infrastructures.
  • The data generated on centralized infrastructure is stored on the respective third parties, so their privacy policy is applicable there.
  • The data generated on the decentralized infrastructure is only stored on the participants of the network’s device and secured by the network. Layers don’t store any information directly on third party services; we query them from the decentralized network using open source APIs and show them on the Layers App.
  • We haven’t enabled encryption on files, so all the files uploaded through Layers App are public and anyone with an internet connection can have access to them.
  • The Personal Data of the user is stored at N. Virginia US via AWS.

7. Cookie Policy

Cookies are like tiny digital notes your web browser stores when you visit websites. They help websites remember things about you, like your login status or preferences, so you don't have to re-enter information every time you visit. They're harmless text files and don't contain personal details, but they help improve your online experience. Sometimes, too many cookies can slow down your browser, so it's a good idea to clear them occasionally.

Layers uses cookies for authentication purposes only. Layers uses JWT tokens as cookies to store the user session on the web browser. Layers follows a different approach to getting user consent for cookies. Layers uses the user’s wallet-generated signature choice as the cookie consent. If the user signs the message, it is treated as the acceptance of cookies.

We use Google Analytics to track the performance of the website. Google Analytics uses the _ga cookie that enables a service to distinguish one visitor from another and lasts for 2 years. We don’t use any third-party cookies.

8. Statement

This Data Protection Policy highlights our commitment to protecting personal information and data in accordance with UAE and Estonia data protection laws. Users are encouraged to familiarise themselves with this policy and contact us with any questions or concerns.
