Privacy Policy


BlockTrust ("BlockTrust", "we" or "us") provides software that helps online businesses (our "Customers" or “Brands”) run engaging marketing campaigns (“Campaigns”) that are promoted to customers ("Campaign Users").

Security & Privacy is an important part of our platform that we take very seriously. Therefore, this Privacy Policy governs the manner in which BlockTrust collects, uses, maintains and discloses information collected from users (each, a "User") of the https://block-trust.io website ("Site"). This privacy policy applies to the Site and all products or services offered by BlockTrust.

In order to ensure confidentiality and lawful processing of its visitors, Customers and Campaign Users personal data, BlockTrust in its capacity of a data controller and of a processor, conducts its activities in strict compliance with the requirements set in the Australia Privacy Act 1988, Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of this data (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA).

This Privacy Policy applies to all Customers, Campaign Users and Visitors of our Site and Services.

What Information We Collect and How We Use It

We may collect the following types of information about you on our Website

Customers and Visitors of our Site

We may collect your personal data in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to, when you visit our Site, register on the Site, participate in a Campaign, subscribe to our newsletter, fill out a form, or in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available.

Registration and Contact Information:As appropriate and depending on the Services you would like to use, Customers and Visitors may be asked to provide us with full name, username, whatsapp or phone number, email, address, credit card, phone number or billing information.

Payment Information:When you purchase the Services, we will also collect transaction information, which may include your credit card information, billing and mailing address, and other payment-related information.

Technical, Usage and Location Information:We automatically collect information on how you interact with the Site, such as the IP address from which you access the Site, date and time, information about your browser, operating system and computer or device, pages viewed and items clicked. We may also collect location information, including location information automatically provided by your computer or device. We use cookies and similar technologies to collect some of this information and persist your login to our Site.

Third Party Platforms.We may collect information when you interact with our advertisements and other content on third-party sites or platforms, such as social networking sites. This may include information such as Facebook Likes, posts, profile information gathered from social networking sites during signup or the fact that you viewed or interacted with our content.

Other Information.We may collect other information from you that is not specifically listed here. We may use any such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy or as otherwise permitted by you.

BlockTrust Campaign Users

Companies that use BlockTrust to run campaigns ("Campaign") may require Campaign Users to supply certain information as part of a Campaign. BlockTrust processes this data in accordance with our Privacy Policy.

BlockTrust is a consent based marketing platform, this means that in order for us to process data on behalf of users they must provide it via explicit consent first. This might be as simple as filling out a form or something more complex like connecting Facebook to their BlockTrust account.

BlockTrust also does not collect retain or share end user information including IP addresses, unique user identifiers, or personally identifiable information gathered on sites or apps not owned by BlockTrust, except for the limited purpose of determining conversion rates & detecting fraud, in which case all personally identifiable information remains anonymous until you explicitly consent by entering a campaign.

BlockTrust does not track or provide any personal information to Companies that run Campaigns until you explicitly provide consent. This means that you do not expose any personal information to either BlockTrust or Companies until you actively participate in their Campaign (even if you are still logged into BlockTrust or not).

IP Addresses:IP addresses are collected Anonymously (last octet removed) for reporting and usage purposes. When you consent to a specific campaign your IP address is linked to the associated record and allows campaign owners to filter records that share an IP address. Your IP address is never shared publicly within the app and always remains hidden.

Name, Email & Form Fields:By default each Campaign may collect basic login information from users that includes their full name and email address. By entering campaigns you are accepting that campaign owners will have access to the information you provide.

Some Campaigns may also require additional Custom Fields which include Date of Birth (for Age Verification) and other identifiable fields that the user can choose to fill out.

Social Logins:BlockTrust also allows Campaign Users to connect social accounts to your profile. Companies that have social logins enabled on their Campaigns will be able to see basic information related to accounts that you connect. This includes but is not limited to your name, email address, social profile URL's and associated profile photos.

BlockTrust will never use or post to these accounts without your permission and will always require your interaction with the widget to execute any specific actions

BlockTrust will only ever use information that you have made public or specifically allowed us to access when you accept permissions

If you wish to remove the link between BlockTrust and any social network, you can either remove the BlockTrust Competitions app inside that specific social network or unlink it from the Edit tab inside the Campaign

Persistent Logins:BlockTrust is a distributed platform, which means that if a Campaign User has previously logged into our widget they will continue to stay logged in via third party Cookies across other Campaigns owned by other Companies until they specifically log out. This is designed to make it easy for users to enter more than one campaign without having to re-enter their details again.

YouTube, Google and Other Social Media Platforms

For YouTube and other social media platform Actions, BlockTrust uses YouTube's API Services and other relevant platform API’s to receive data. Users who use these Actions agree to be bound by the YouTube and/or other relevant social platform Terms of Service.

Users who log in via Google/Youtube or other social media platforms grant access to BlockTrust to access selected data stored in Google/YouTube or other social media platforms. You may revoke this access at any time via your security settings (under "Your connections to third-party apps & services"). For more information, please review the respective Privacy policy of the social media platform.


Our Site uses both first and third party Cookies to enhance User experience. A User's web browser places a cookie on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. Users may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert when cookies are being sent. If they do so, please note that some parts of the Site and Campaigns may cease to function.

BlockTrust Campaigns use Cookies to track information about users in order to serve them content. This includes but is not limited to:

Persist Customers sessions that are logged into BlockTrust

Persist Campaign Users sessions that are logged into campaigns (either on BlockTrust.io or embedded via iFrames)

Tracking and awarding credit for referring users

Tracking browser behaviours to show campaigns

Tracked users referred by our Referral Program

Device Fingerprinting

Device fingerprinting is a process by which a fingerprint of a device is captured when visiting a website.

BlockTrust uses 3rd party services to gather a number of data points from a BlockTrust Campaign Users computer, such as operating system version, browser version, screen resolution, plug-ins & language. This unique ID is then transmitted when BlockTrust Campaign Users consent by providing their details when entering a campaign.

The information collected via Device Fingerprinting is used to identify patterns of fraudulent behaviour by BlockTrust Campaign Users that violate our Terms of Service. This includes trying to cheat by creating multiple accounts, referring your own devices or accounts into a Campaign or attempting to redeem a Reward that is limited to one per person.

BlockTrust does not use this information to track or identify users on sites or apps not owned by BlockTrust or for any other purpose than to detect fraud & protect the integrity of Campaigns, nor do we use the BlockTrust.io domain to fingerprint on 3rd party domains.
