This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and manage the information gathered when you use or access our website, products, services, or applications that refer to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the "Services"). Your use of the Services is subject to this Privacy Policy as well as our Terms of Service, demonstrating our pledge to protect your privacy rights.


By using or accessing our Site, Products, or Services or engaging with us, you are agreeing to this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy ("Policy") outlines our general practices for protecting your Personal Data on the Abyiss.com website and associated services (collectively, "the Site"). It includes the kinds of information we collect, how we utilize it, and the choices you have regarding our use of your Personal Data. Personal Data refers to any information that can be used to identify you specifically. Anonymized information that cannot be used to identify a specific individual, and which may be used for any legal purpose, does not fall within the scope of Personal Data.


Abyiss LLC reserves the right to modify this Policy at any given time and will do so periodically. Each modification will become effective upon its publication to the Site. Your continued usage of the Site following any such modification signifies your acceptance of any changes to this Policy. It's therefore crucial that you review this Policy on a regular basis. If you have any inquiries concerning this Policy, please contact us at support@abyiss.com. If you do not agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy, you are advised to deactivate your account and cease using the Services.

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 consider how privacy and transparency on the blockchain works.

Cookies and Similar Technologies Used on Our Services

Some browsers also give you the option of downloading and installing extensions that block pixels and other tracking technologies.

Social Media Platforms. We may display targeted advertising to you through social media platforms, such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and other social media forums. These companies have interest-based advertising programs that allow us to direct advertisements to users who have shown interest in our services while those users are on the social media platform, or to groups of other users who share similar traits, such as likely commercial interests and demographics. 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. These advertisements are governed by the privacy policies of those social media companies that provide them. If you do not want to receive targeted ads on your social networks, you may be able to adjust your advertising preferences through your settings on those networks.
