Welcome! We are Freedom Squares. This Privacy Notice explains how
Freedom Squares Inc. (“Freedom Squares”, “Company”, “we”, “us”, or “our”)
collects, uses, discloses, and otherwise processes personal information (as
defined below) in connection with our websites, including
https://www.freedomsquares.io/ (the “Sites”) and other websites we own andoperate that link to this Privacy Notice, and the related content, platform, services, products, and other functionality offered on or through our online services, including our web3 operating system (collectively, the “Services”).
It does not address our privacy practices relating to Freedom Squares
employees and other personnel.

What is Personal Information?

When we use the term “personal information” in this Privacy Notice, we
mean information that identifies, relates to, describes, is reasonably capable
of being associated with, or could reasonably be linked, directly or indirectly,
to an individual. It does not include aggregated or deidentified information
that is maintained in a form that is not reasonably capable of being
associated with or linked to an individual.

Our Collection of Personal Information

Sometimes we collect personal information automatically when an individual
interacts with our Services and sometimes, we collect personal information
directly from an individual. At times, we may collect personal information
about an individual from other sources and third parties, even before our
first direct interaction. If you choose not to share certain information with us,
we may not be able to serve you as effectively or offer you our Services. Any information you provide to us that is not required is voluntary.

Blockchain participants: Please note that by virtue of the public nature of the blockchain, including the Ethereum Blockchain, the holdings and transactions associated with your cryptocurrency wallet address will be publicly available and accessible to third parties. This includes, but is not limited to, your public sending address (including, but not limited to, cryptographically secure non-fungible tokens, and other blockchain securitized tokens), the public address of the receiver, the amount sent or received, and any other data a user has chosen to include in a given transaction. Information stored on the blockchain may not be able to be modified or deleted due to the immutable nature of the blockchain. Transactions and addresses may reveal information about the user’s identity and information can potentially be correlated now or in the future by any party who chooses to do so. Please review how privacy and transparency on the blockchain works.

Personal Information Collected from Individuals
We may collect the following personal information submitted to us by
individuals through the Services:
• Contact Information, including first and last name, email address, and
communication preferences.
• Inquiry and Communications Information, including information provided in
custom messages sent through the forms, to one of our email addresses, or
via phone. This also includes information provided in order to subscribe to
any of our newsletters or waitlist (such as email address) or contact

• Account and Crypto Information, including your username and public
blockchain address associated with your self-hosted crypto wallet, crypto
wallet types, amounts of digital assets and account balances. Please note we utilize third-party providers to process payments on our behalf and do not accept payment directly through our Services.

assets and tokens, and other NFT-related information (e.g., transfers of NFTs between accounts, the corresponding smart contracts, amounts paid, and metadata describing each NFT and its properties as a digital asset).

in any questions submitted through surveys or content of any testimonials.

Personal Information Automatically Collected
As is true of most digital platforms, we and our third-party providers may
also collect personal information from an individual’s device, browsing
actions and website usage patterns automatically when visiting or
interacting with our Services, which may include log data (such as internet
protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type, browser id, the URL
entered and the referring page/campaign, date/time of visit, the time spent
on our Services and any errors that may occur during the visit to our
Services), analytics data (such as the electronic path taken to our Services,
through our Services and when exiting our Services, as well as usage and
activity on our Services) and location data (such as general geographic
location based on the log data we or our third-party providers collect).
We and our third-party providers may use (i) cookies or small data files that
are stored on an individual’s computer and (ii) other, related technologies,
such as web beacons, pixels, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies and logging technologies (collectively, “cookies”) to
automatically collect this personal information. For example, our Sites may
use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC
(“Google”), to collect and view reports about the traffic on our Sites. More
information about the use of Google Analytics for these analytical and non-
advertising purposes can be obtained by visiting Google’s privacy policy here and Google’s currently available opt-out options are available here.

To manage cookies, an individual may change their browser settings to: (i)
notify them when they receive a cookie, so the individual can choose
whether or not to accept it; (ii) disable existing cookies; or (iii) automatically
reject cookies. Please note that doing so may negatively impact an
individual’s experience using our Services, as some features and offerings
may not work properly or at all. Depending on an individual’s device and
operating system, the individual may not be able to delete or block all
cookies. In addition, if an individual wants to reject cookies across all
browsers and devices, the individual will need to do so on each browser on
each device they actively use. An individual may also set their email options
to prevent the automatic downloading of images that may contain
technologies that would allow us to know whether they have accessed our
email and performed certain functions with it.

online advertising practices, please see the Third Party Data Collection and
Online Advertising section of this Privacy Notice.

Third-Party Data Collection and Online Advertising

We participate in interest-based advertising and use third party advertising
companies to serve you targeted advertisements based on your browsing

use of our online services over time so that they may play or display ads on
our Services, on other websites or services you may use, and on other
devices you may use. Typically, though not always, the information used for
interest-based advertising is collected through tracking technologies, such as cookies, web beacons, embedded scripts, location-identifying technologies, and similar technology, which recognize the device you are using and collect information, including click stream information, browser type, time and date you visited the Sites, AdID, precise geolocation and other information. We may share a common account identifier (such as a hashed email address or user ID) with our third-party advertising partners to help identify you across devices. We and our third-party partners use this information to make the advertisements you see online more relevant to your interests, as well as to provide advertising-related services such as reporting, attribution, analytics and market research. We may also use services provided by third parties (such as social media platforms) to serve targeted ads to you and others on such platforms. We may do this by providing a hashed version of your email address or other information to the platform provider.

We display targeted advertising to you through social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and other social media forums.
These companies have interest-based advertising programs that allow us to

We may share a unique identifier, such as a user ID or hashed email address,
with these platform providers or they may collect information from our
website visitors through a first-party pixel, in order to direct targeted
advertising to you or to a custom audience on the social media platform.

ads on your social networks, you may be able to adjust your advertising
preferences through your settings on those networks.

hashed email address, with Google to facilitate the service. Google Analytics
