Because we aim to make no money, we have no reason to sell your information to third parties. If any of this changes, we will halt new user signup and give users at least 2 weeks to withdraw their account balance before we shut down our servers.

Your privacy is important to us. If you have questions about any of the provisions described above, please contact us.
