Effective Date: August 4, 2022
Newcube knows that you care about and are concerned about how your personal information is used and shared. Your privacy is important to us, and we ask that you read this Policy carefully to be informed about our practices. By visiting www.newcube.art (the “Site”), you (“you” or “user” or, collectively, “users”) acknowledge that you accept and agree to the practices and policies outlined in this Policy and hereby consent to the collection, use, and sharing of your information as described herein.
This Policy covers our collection and use of your personally identifiable information (“PII”) when you access our Site, which PII is either provided to us by you or collected automatically because you have visited or transacted on the Site. This Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we neither own or control.
II. What PII Do We Collect?
The PII we collect from Users of the Site enables us to personalize and improve our Services. PII does not include information that has been aggregated or made anonymous so that by itself it no longer identifies and can no longer reasonably be used to contact a specific person or household.
We collect the following types of information from our Users:
A. PII You Provide Us: 1. If you choose to create an account on the Site, you are required to provide us with your email address, name, mailing address, telephone number, and credit card information. It is your responsibility to ensure that all of this information is valid. Please note that we will not store your credit card information. It is your responsibility to keep your account information current, and you are able to update your profile as often as necessary in order to do so. If at any time you decide to terminate your account, we have the right to store a copy of the data provided if it is required to complete a financial transaction which has not yet been completed or to comply with applicable law. Once your account is terminated, your data will be anonymized such that it can no longer be associated with your name or used to identify you or a household specifically. When payment for an Artwork is made via wire transfer, we will collect from you any and all information necessary to effectuate that payment, including but not limited to your contact information and bank information. We reserve the right to contact your financial institution in order to confirm your ability to finalize the transaction or to verify your identity as the owner of any bank account for which information has been provided.

- When we collect such usage information, this data is used in anonymized and aggregated form, and not in a manner that can identify you or a household. We may also provide this anonymized and aggregated information to our third-party service providers in the normal course of business of providing our services to you. We do not disclose anonymized or aggregated information to a third-party service provider in a manner that can identify you or your household.

III. Do We Share or Sell Any of the PII We Receive?
Except as set forth in this Policy, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to notify you when your PII may be shared with third parties, and you shall be given an opportunity to opt-out of any such transfer. However, it is important to note that in the event that you do wish to opt-out, all functionality on the Site or, indeed, the Site itself, may not be available to you to use.
A. Third-Party Service Providers: We engage with third-party service providers to undertake work on our behalf and in doing so may be required to share PII with them in furtherance of their work with us and in order to provide products and services to you. Unless we inform you otherwise, these third-party service providers do not have any right to use the PII we share with them beyond what is necessary to provide their services to us.
B. Communication about the Site: As part of the Site and our services, you may receive communications from us. We may send you email, contact you, or engage you in other communication that we determine relates to your use of the Site.

C. Business Transfers: We retain the exclusive right to engage in a merger, acquisition, or sale of any or all of our assets at any time. Should such a sale take place: (1) we will notify you of such a sale to the most recent email address you have provided to us, and (2) you are hereby advised that your PII may be included in that sale of assets, though we do not consider such a transfer to be a “sale” of your PII as that word is generally understood.
D. Protection of newcube and Others: We may release PII when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law; enforce our Terms and Conditions or other agreements; and to protect the rights, property, or safety of Newcube, our employees, our users, and others as situations may arise. This includes but is not limited to sharing information with third parties to mitigate fraudulent activities on the Site.
IV. Legal Basis for Processing PII
