3.1. Registration. Persons interested in using the Blockpit Applications must create their own customer account ("Customer Account").

3.2. No personal data within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is required to use the Blockpit Applications.
3.3. No Customer identification. Blockpit generally does not verify the identity of its customers. In the event that Blockpit has doubts about the correctness of the registration data or it assumes that an account was created or malicious purposes, Blockpit is, however, entitled to contact the Blockpit Customer for the purpose of verification (e.g. via e-mail or via the customer account). If Blockpit Customers contact each other via the Blockpit Applications or via the communication channels provided by Blockpit (Discord, Telegram, etc.), it is up to them to convince themselves of each other's identity.
3.4. Prohibition of multiple use of a single Customer Account. Only one Customer is permitted per Customer Account. The use of a Customer Account for more than one person is expressly prohibited.

3.5. Address changes. The Blockpit Customer must keep their contact details (email address etc.) up to date and correct in their Customer Account. As long as the Customer does not inform Blockpit of a new email address or postal address, Blockpit will continue to communicate to the previous email address or postal address. Statements delivered to the previous address are deemed to have been received by the Blockpit Customer if Blockpit (i) has not been notified of a change of e-mail address or postal address or (ii) such change was not known to Blockpit due to gross negligence of the Blockpit Customer.
4.1. Customer Restrictions. Blockpit reserves the right, at its sole discretion, not to do business with certain persons or entities.

4.2.1. in the case of a Customer Account pursuant to clause 5.3.2, persons who are younger than 16 years, as well as
4.2.2. persons for whom one of the extraordinary reasons for termination specified in section 10.3.1 applies or has applied.
4.2.3. Blockpit is entitled to exclude additional persons or entities from using the services provided by Blockpit and the Blockpit Applications. In this case, the transmitted data will be deleted immediately.

5.2. Available applications before completing the registration process. Before completing the registration process, only the Blockpit platform can be explored and general information about the Blockpit Applications can be viewed.
5.3. Available applications after completing the registration process. Once the registration process has been completed, the Blockpit Customer has access to the services offered through the Blockpit Applications as follows:
5.3.1 Free-of-charge Customer Account. Blockpit Customers can make use of a limited range of services via the Blockpit platform without payment of a fee, which can be viewed at https://blockpit.io/pricing. Further information can be found under Section 6.

A Blockpit Customer who does not wish to pay for the use of the Blockpit Applications, after successful registration, receives access to a restricted range of services according to the categories visible on https://blockpit.io/pricing. In particular, they can only enter their transactions manually (via manual input or CSV-import) or via integrations (Exchanges & Wallets) into the Blockpit Application (Section 8) and track their transactions. They will not receive any export or e-mail support.
6.2. Duration. The free service offer is available to the Blockpit Customer until further notice. Blockpit reserves the right to discontinue the service offer in accordance with Section 6.1. at any time.

7.1. Use of additional services. A Blockpit Customer who wishes to make use of the extended range of services according to the categories shown on https://blockpit.io/pricing must pay the specified fee (plus any VAT) after successful registration.
7.2. Retroactive acquisition. It is also possible for the Blockpit Customer to retroactively purchase licences for tax years that have already passed and thus also to subsequently create tax reports for these tax years.
7.3. Duration. The acquired range of services is permanently available to the Blockpit Customer via the Blockpit Applications for a specifically selected tax year.
7.4. Payments. Blockpit Customers have to pay for the extended service offer in advance. Once the service offering has been selected and paid for, it is available to the Blockpit Customer for the duration of the respective tax year.
7.5. Failed direct debit. In the event that the fee cannot be collected from the bank account indicated by the Blockpit Customer and the failed direct debit is the fault of the Blockpit Customer, Blockpit may charge fees that are in reasonable proportion to the amount to be collected, insofar as these fees are necessary to cover the reasonable costs of Blockpit in connection with the failed direct debit. A minimum of EUR 5.00 and a maximum of EUR 15.00 in fees will be charged. Blockpit is entitled to request payment from the customer by e-mail.
7.6. Payment Processing via Third-Party Providers. Blockpit reserves the right to process all payment transactions via third-party providers (e.g. Stripe) and to redirect customers to these platforms for this purpose. Blockpit has concluded corresponding data protection and data processing agreements with all of its third-party providers.
8.1. After successful registration, the Customer will receive access to the Blockpit Application for calculating taxes in connection with crypto assets ("Cryptotax"). As a Blockpit Customer, you can import data from exchanges and wallets and your transactions will be classified for tax purposes in accordance with the applicable tax laws. On this basis, Blockpit generates a tax report.
8.2. Supported country-specific solutions. Cryptotax prepares country-specific tax reports for the UK, USA, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain, France, the Netherlands and Belgium.
8.3. Automatic imports. Blockpit allows you to import transaction data related to crypto assets from exchange platforms (e.g. Coinbase, Bitpanda, Kraken, Binance, etc.) and wallets (e.g. Bitcoin Wallet, Metamask) to Cryptotax, if the respective exchange platform or wallet allows this. Depending on the respective platform or wallet, different steps may be required for this: Either the data is entered automatically via an API interface, by a blockchain import via a wallet address or by uploading a corresponding CSV-Excel, or the entry is done manually. The Consumer confirms that they are authorised to import the transaction data to the Blockpit Application. Please note that Blockpit does not review the transaction data for accuracy. Blockpit also reserves the right to refuse the import of transaction data without any reason.
8.5. Transaction overview. Cryptotax provides you with detailed information on all transactions that you have carried out via your linked platforms or wallets. This includes the date, time, amounts and type of transaction.
8.6. Portfolio Tracking. Based on the imported data, Cryptotax creates an overview of your portfolio of crypto assets. This allows you to keep an eye on all assets that you hold on an exchange platform or wallet and track them on a daily basis. Furthermore, data regarding airdrops, lending, staking, masternodes, mining and bounties are imported and displayed in your portfolio.
8.7. Calculate tax report. You can have Blockpit generate a tax report based on the imported transaction data via Cryptotax, which shows whether or how much tax is due for realised capital gains in the respective tax year.
8.8. No Tax Advice. Through your use of Blockpit, you acknowledge and agree that information provided by Blockpit is simply that, information, and should not be considered a substitute for legal advice, tax advice, audit advice, accounting advice, or brokerage advice under the guidance of a licensed professional. Further, the information provided herein should not be taken as financial planning, investment solicitation or trading advice. No fiduciary relationship has been created between your and Blockpit. The reports and information prepared within the framework of Cryptotax do not constitute tax advisory services within the meaning of the Austrian Act on the Profession of Chartered Accountants and Tax Consultants (Wirtschaftstreuhandberufsgesetz). It cannot be a substitute for trading advice, investment advice, legal advice, or tax advice from a licensed professional. The determined information is merely based on pre-programmed mathematical algorithms which process the transaction data provided by the Blockpit Customer. You agree that Blockpit does not check individual transaction data for its correctness and/or accuracy.
8.9. Blockpit's right of use. You hereby grant Blockpit a free, non-exclusive and unrestricted right of use to the content published, transmitted and/or generated by you in the course of using or via the Blockpit Applications. Blockpit is entitled to use, modify and/or edit this content both within the scope of its own business activities and within the scope of the business activities of its affiliated companies, provided that this does not impair the legitimate interests of the Blockpit Customer. In the event that the content is used outside of the Blockpit Applications, Blockpit will - to the extent feasible - indicate that the content was published, transmitted and/or generated by the Blockpit Customer. Except otherwise provided herein, Blockpit will not sell to or share any of your data with third parties.
9.1. Withdrawal before fulfilment by Blockpit. In the case of contracts for download software and apps - such as the Blockpit Applications - Consumer Customers are always entitled to a right of withdrawal if no service has yet been provided by the company (Blockpit). In this case, the Consumer Customer has the right to withdraw from the concluded contract within 14 (fourteen) days after the conclusion of the contract without giving reasons. This 14-day period begins on the day the contract is concluded. In order to exercise this right of withdrawal, the Consumer Customer must inform Blockpit of his decision to withdraw from the concluded contract by means of a clear declaration. The Consumer Customer may use the model cancellation form (Annex II) for this purpose, but is not obliged to do so. The exercise of the right of cancellation by the Consumer Customer shall be deemed to have been made in good time if the Consumer Customer sends the corresponding declaration before the expiry of the cancellation period and can provide proof of a confirmation of transmission and, furthermore, no service has yet been provided by Blockpit. If the Consumer Customer withdraws from the concluded contract, Blockpit must refund all payments received without delay, but no later than 14 (fourteen) days after the day on which Blockpit received notification of the cancellation. For this repayment, Blockpit will use the same means of payment that the Consumer Customer used in the original transaction, unless expressly agreed otherwise with the Consumer Customer. When purchasing via an affiliate link, the affiliate receives a certain percentage of the purchase price paid. In the event of cancellation, the Consumer Customer will be paid the purchase price minus this affiliate payment. If the Consumer Customer does not agree to this, they must delete the affiliate cookie before making the purchase or open the incognito mode in the browser before placing the order in order to place an order without an affiliate.
9.2. Loss of the Right of Withdrawal. By purchasing a Blockpit licence, the Customer agrees to these Terms and Conditions and expressly requests the immediate execution of the contract. They thereby acknowledge that they lose their right to withdraw from this contract as soon as Blockpit has started to provide any digital content (e.g., by downloading a tax report). This does not affect the right of a Customer to withdraw from the contract if a technical problem on the part of Blockpit, e.g. an error or bug, cannot be resolved by Blockpit within a reasonable period of time.
9.3. Contract confirmation. Blockpit will send a confirmation of the concluded contract including these Terms and Conditions to the Customer immediately after the purchase of a license.

In the event of misuse or fraudulent use, Blockpit is entitled to block or delete your Customer Account;

10.2. The Blockpit Customer undertakes to report violations of the obligations set out in Section 10.1 immediately via e-mail to email@example.com.

11.1.2. Blockpit may, in the event of an intended discontinuation pursuant to Section 6.2, terminate the business relationship subject to a notice period of 14 days. In this case, the Blockpit Customer can also switch at any time within the notice period to a paid Customer Account in accordance with Section 6.3.
11.2. Paid Customer Account
Both Blockpit and the Blockpit Customer can terminate the business relationship at any time. The right of the Consumer Customer to terminate free of charge due to a change in the Blockpit T&C remains unaffected. In addition, Blockpit may, at its own discretion, accept an ordinary termination without observing any notice period.
12.1. Blockpit or a Blockpit Customer may terminate the entire business relationship at any time without observing a notice period and with immediate effect for good cause.
12.2. Blockpit reserves the right to terminate the business relationship with immediate effect for good cause and/or to block, freeze and/or close the Customer Account, in particular, but not exclusively, if

12.2.4. the Blockpit Customer violates any provision pursuant to Section 3 or Section 4; or
12.2.5. the Blockpit Customer acts in such a way or uses Blockpit Applications in such a way that this causes damage to Blockpit or Blockpit’s reputation.
12.3. In the case of a paid Customer Account according to Section 5.3.2 Blockpit is not obliged to refund the paid fee to the Blockpit Customer concerned.
12.4. Information about blocking or deletion of the Customer Account.

Blockpit is not obliged to disclose findings or data that have become known to Blockpit in the course of any investigations or enquiries.
12.5. Blockpit will lift the block on a Customer Account as soon as the reason for the block has ceased to exist and the use is therefore reasonably possible again.
13.1. Blockpit is entitled to grant credits to selected Blockpit Customers for the use of Blockpit Applications. After redeeming the credits, Blockpit Customers can use additional functions free of charge or purchase them at a reduced fee. As part of the Blockpit Affiliate Programme, Blockpit Customers can use an invitation link to persuade people who are not Blockpit Customers to register a Customer Account.
13.2. Special and free offers. Blockpit reserves the right to make special or free offers. Additional conditions or restrictions may apply to these special or free offers. Transfers of special or free offers are not permitted. Blockpit further reserves the right to reserve certain special promotions only to a certain group of customers and the Blockpit Customer is aware that he/she has no right whatsoever to receive any special or free service or the like.
14.1. No warranty towards Business Customers. Blockpit does not provide any warranty to Business Customers for the availability and/or functionality of the Blockpit Applications, the error-free data import via third-party systems and the loss of personal data. Blockpit is not liable in the event that data is tracked, recorded or falsified by third parties.
15.1. Liability towards Consumer Customers. Blockpit is liable for damages incurred by a Consumer Customer for itself and its vicarious agents - for whatever legal reason including tort - only if Blockpit or its vicarious agents have culpably violated an essential contractual obligation (cardinal obligation) in a way that endangers the purpose of the contract or if the damage is based on gross negligence or intent of Blockpit or its vicarious agents. If the culpable breach of an essential contractual obligation (cardinal obligation) is only slightly negligent, Blockpit's liability is limited to such typical damages that were reasonably foreseeable for Blockpit upon conclusion of the contract. This limitation of liability also applies to the extent of the damage. In the aforementioned cases, the liability for a financial loss is limited to the sum of the payments made to Blockpit by the concretely affected Blockpit Customer. The aforementioned limitations of liability do not apply in the absence of warranted characteristics, a liability of Blockpit according to the Austrian Product Liability Act (Produkthaftungsgesetz) or in the case of personal injury.
15.2. Liability towards Business Customers. Blockpit is not liable for damages incurred by a Business Customer in connection with the Blockpit Applications and/or the products and services offered thereon, unless such damage was caused by Blockpit intentionally or through gross negligence or in the case of personal injury.
15.3. Third Party Services. When using websites or services that are not provided by Blockpit ("third-party services"), Blockpit expressly assumes no liability for the content, availability or performance of such third parties and is not liable for any damage or loss incurred by a Blockpit Customer or any third party in the use of such third-party services (e.g. due to errors, problems, viruses or loss of data). The Blockpit Customer uses such third-party services solely at their own risk. Blockpit cannot and do not verify the reliability of such third parties or their services.
15.4. External content. Blockpit assumes no liability for external links, banners or other information and advertising offers placed by third parties on the Blockpit Applications. In the event that the Blockpit Customer concludes a legal transaction with a third-party provider via a linked page, a banner or in connection with information and advertising offers, Blockpit assumes no liability for the services of the third-party provider.
16.1 No Waiver of Rights. Blockpit's failure at any time or for any period to enforce or exercise any provision of these Blockpit T&C or any right or remedy arising under these Blockpit T&C shall not constitute or be construed as a waiver of such right or remedy and shall not in any way affect Blockpit's right to enforce or exercise the same at any subsequent time, provided that such right is not time-barred, expired or otherwise precluded.
16.2 Period of validity. These Blockpit T&C shall continue to apply after termination of the business relationship until complete settlement or mutatis mutandis.
16.3. Gender-independent. Insofar as these Blockpit T&C refer to a specific gender, this shall be understood to mean male/female/diverse persons equally.
16.4. Contract language. The Blockpit T&C are prepared and published in German and English. In case of dispute and in the event of deviations, the German version of the Blockpit T&C shall prevail.
17.1. Applicable Law. The Blockpit T&C and any service provided hereunder shall be governed by the laws of the Republic of Austria, excluding the provisions of the United Nations Convention on Contracts for the International Sale of Goods and excluding the conflict of law rules of recourse and/or conflicts of law provisions of Austrian private international law. For Consumer Customers, this only applies insofar as the law of their country of residence does not grant them a more favourable legal position vis-à-vis Blockpit in the individual case.
17.2. Severability. If any provision of these T&C is or becomes invalid, void, illegal or otherwise unenforceable, the validity of the remaining provisions of these T&C shall not be affected. In place of the invalid, void, illegal or otherwise unenforceable provision(s), that provision shall apply which, to the extent legally possible, best corresponds in its economic effect to the invalid, void, illegal or otherwise unenforceable provision(s). This shall also apply mutatis mutandis in the event of an unplanned loophole in these T&C.
17.3. Jurisdiction. All contractual and non-contractual disputes or claims between a Business Customer and Blockpit shall be exclusively submitted to the competent court in Vienna, Austria.

The privacy of our users, and therefore the protection of your personal data, is our top priority. For this reason, we not only encrypt all data and data transfers in accordance with current industry standards, but we have also restricted the processing of personal data to absolutely necessary areas only. We will never pass your data on to third parties.
With this Data Protection Declaration within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Blockpit AG, FN 477383i, Peter-Behrens-Platz 4/6. OG, 4020 Linz, as the responsible body for data processing (for contact details see our imprint), explains Who, What, When, How, Why and Where personal customer data is processed. The collection, administration and use of personal data by Blockpit complies with the highest security and data protection regulations applicable in the European Union and its member states.
First of all, we would like to point out that the entire software solution provided by Blockpit is basically completely independent of the disclosure of personal data, i.e. data that can be clearly assigned to a specific person, and can therefore also be operated fully functional on an anonymised or pseudonymised basis.
A valid e-mail address must be provided when registering to use the Blockpit applications. Other information, however, is optional and voluntary during registration and can be added or deleted by the user afterwards (e.g. first and last name; date of birth; address). Blockpit does not currently offer the option of encryption of individual user accounts.
We process the personal data that we receive from you as part of our business relationship (mandatory and voluntary). We may also process personal data that we legitimately receive from publicly accessible sources. This may include the following personal data:
The purpose of data collection is the automated data processing and provision of services in the context of transaction analyses and applications in the field of blockchain technology. Blockpit has a business licence for services in automatic data processing and information technology. If the aforementioned personal data has been disclosed to us, we may process it in the following ways:
For technical reasons, the following data that your browser transmits to us or to our web space provider is also recorded (so-called server log files):
This anonymous data is stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and therefore does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. It is evaluated for statistical purposes in order to optimise our website and our offers.
All data that the user has processed on the blockpit.io platform will be (i) anonymised or (ii) deleted within 30 days of termination or exclusion, provided that there are no legal storage obligations or legitimate interests to the contrary. At the user's request, all personal data relating to the user will be deleted, provided there are no legal retention obligations or legitimate interests to the contrary. This requires an email with the email address provided during registration and the request for final deletion to firstname.lastname@example.org. Blockpit will comply with such requests within the statutory period.
Blockpit treats all user data confidentially and only publishes such data if required by law or with the express consent of the user. At Blockpit, only those departments or employees receive access to your data who need it to fulfil contractual, legal and potential regulatory obligations and to protect legitimate interests. The service providers we use (processors) also only receive data from us if they need this data to fulfil the respective service or if a corresponding authorisation is given. All processors and vicarious agents are contractually obliged (order processing contracts) to maintain data secrecy and to treat your data confidentially and only process it in the context of providing the service.
Blockpit has implemented appropriate security regulations and procedures to protect the stored user data. Sensitive data is not collected. Non-individualisable information is stored and used for the purposes of newsletter advertising or on blockpit.io by Blockpit or its contractual partners. Registered users can also unsubscribe from this advertising using a function on the blockpit.io website.
We process and store your personal data for as long as is necessary for the fulfilment of our contractual and legal obligations, but in any case for the duration of the entire business relationship and beyond in accordance with the statutory retention periods (e.g. 7 years according to the Austrian BAO or UGB; 30 years according to the Austrian ABGB due to warranty and compensation). It is possible to anonymise the data instead of deleting it. In this case, any personal reference is irretrievably removed, which is why the deletion obligations under data protection law no longer apply.
Data security is very important to us and we therefore have comprehensive administrative, technical and physical measures in place to protect your personal data from accidental, unlawful or unauthorised destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. These measures comply with the highest international security standards and are regularly reviewed for their effectiveness and suitability to achieve the intended security objectives.
We have implemented the following technical and organisational measures, among others:
You have the option of initiating booking transactions in FIAT or crypto via our services. If this is necessary for the fulfilment of the contract, data will also be transferred to our payment service providers (e.g. Stripe, PayPal, Apple Store, Google Store etc) or the credit institution commissioned to process the payment. The scope of the data is limited to the minimum required for the purpose of processing the contract. Please note, however: Personal data may also be passed on by these third parties to service providers, subcontractors or other affiliated companies if this is necessary to fulfil the contractual obligations arising from your order or if the personal data is to be processed on our behalf.
When paying by credit card, instant bank transfer or direct debit, payment is processed by the payment service provider Stripe Payment Europe Ltd, Block 4, Harcourt Centre, Harcourt Roud, Dublin 2, Ireland. You can find more information about Stripe's data protection at https://stripe.com/privacy.
When paying via the Apple App Store, payment is processed by the payment service provider Apple Inc, One Apple Park Way, Cupertino, CA 95014, USA. You can find more information on data protection in the App Store at https://developer.apple.com/app-store/app-privacy-details/.
When paying via the Google Store, payment is processed by the payment service provider Google Commerce Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland. You can find more information on data protection in the app store at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.
Although we do not store any credit card information ourselves, we register a payment ID, which is issued by the respective provider and can be assigned to a person by them, as well as the duration of your subscription, the price, the currency, the VAT (based on country information) and the payment provider. We need to do this in order to activate the correct licence for you.
We use third parties to help us provide and improve our products (e.g. maintenance, analytics, audit, payments, fraud detection, marketing and development). These service providers may have access to your browsing data, unless you have disabled this (see cookie statement) and this is necessary to fulfil these tasks on our behalf, and are obliged not to pass it on or use it for other purposes. We use processors such as Google, Meta, Apple, Amazon Web Services, Firstpromoter, Miro, Notion Labs, Zoom, Semrush, Atlassian, Zendesk, Stripe, AdRoll, Zapier, Hotjar & Hubspot .
Every data subject has the right to information, rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, objection and data portability. In addition, there is a right to lodge a complaint with a data protection supervisory authority. The supervisory authority for Blockpit's compliance with data protection regulations is the Austrian Data Protection Authority, Wickenburggasse 8-10, 1080 Vienna, phone: +43 1 531 15-202525, email: email@example.com, website: http://www.dsb.gv.at.
However, before you contact the data protection authority, we ask that you first submit all claims to Blockpit (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We do not use automated decision-making to establish and conduct the business relationship. Personal aspects are also not evaluated (profiling).
Blockpit uses third-party content on its platform:
The Blockpit applications use Google Analytics, a network analysis service from Google Inc ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies" (see this and all cancellation options at https://www.blockpit.io/terms#cookie). The information relating to the visit to a website, including the IP address, is collected by the cookie and usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If a website has activated IP anonymisation, Google first shortens IP addresses from member states of the European Union and EEA states. The full IP address is then, only in exceptional cases, transmitted to the Google server in the USA or Asia and only shortened there. Google uses the information collected on behalf of the website provider to analyse the use of the Blockpit applications, to compile reports on website activity and to provide additional services relating to the Blockpit applications. Under no circumstances will Google link the IP address transmitted by the browser as part of Google Analytics with other Google data.
Your consent allows us to transfer certain data to our partners for processing in countries outside the EU, in particular the USA (e.g. Google Analytics). There is no adequacy decision by the EU Commission for the USA and, despite extensive measures, the high EU level of data protection cannot be guaranteed in the USA. There is a risk that transmitted data may not be deleted or further processed for any purpose, that US authorities may have disproportionate access to your data or that you may not be able to effectively enforce your rights in the USA. You can also revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. However, rejecting some of these cookies may affect your user experience.
Users can prevent the recording by Google and Google's processing of information regarding the use of the Blockpit platform, including the IP address, by downloading and installing the following browser plugin: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Blockpit uses the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc (Google) to protect your orders via Internet forms. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha and the data required for this purpose are transmitted to Google in the USA. The deviating data protection provisions of Google apply to this data. http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
We also use the Google advertising tool "Google Adwords" to advertise our website. As part of this, we use the "Conversion Tracking" analysis service of Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google", on our website. If you have reached our website via a Google advert, a cookie will be stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser places and stores on your computer. These so-called "conversion cookies" lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you as a user have clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and have been redirected to our site. The information collected with the help of "conversion cookies" is used by Google to compile visit statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who have clicked on our advert and also which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. However, we or other Google AdWords advertisers do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users. You can prevent the installation of "conversion cookies" by adjusting your browser settings accordingly, for example by using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or specifically blocks only cookies from the domain "googleadservices.com".
External tools are also available on the market that can be used to block meta-social plugins with add-ons for all common browsers https://www.comparitech.com/blog/vpn-privacy/stop-facebook-tracking/
You can find an overview of the meta plugins at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/

We may use components (videos) from YouTube, LLC 901 Cherry Ave, 94066 San Bruno, CA, USA, a company of Google Inc, Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, on our website. We use the " - extended data protection mode - " option provided by YouTube. When you access a page that has an embedded video, a connection to the YouTube servers is established and the content is displayed on the website by notifying your browser. According to YouTube, in " - extended data protection mode -" only data is transmitted to the YouTube server, in particular which of our Internet pages you have visited when you watch the video. If you are logged in to YouTube at the same time, this information will be assigned to your YouTube member account. You can prevent this by logging out of your member account before visiting our website. Further information on YouTube's data protection is provided under the following link: https://www.youtube.com/intl/ALL_at/howyoutubeworks/user-settings/privacy/
Blockpit (or its web space provider) collects data about every access to the website (so-called server log files). The access data includes: Name of the website accessed, file, date and time of access, amount of data transferred, notification of successful access, browser type and version, the user's operating system, referrer URL (the previously visited page), IP address and the requesting provider. The provider uses the log data only for statistical evaluations for the purpose of operation, security and optimisation of the website. However, the provider reserves the right to check the log data retrospectively if there is a justified suspicion of unlawful use based on concrete evidence.
If a registered user's account is terminated, all personal data provided by the respective user upon registration will be deactivated. All data collected from the user will be (i) anonymised, i.e. it will be visible that this information originates from a deleted account, or (ii) in the event of the deletion of an account, deleted within 30 days, provided that there are no legal storage obligations or legitimate interests of Blockpit to the contrary and, at the request of this Registered User, all user data which is no longer required for the fulfilment of the contract by Blockpit or which must be stored due to legal requirements will be irrevocably deleted. Such a request for deletion must be made by e-mail to email@example.com, stating the e-mail address provided during registration. Blockpit will fulfil this request immediately.
For data processing in connection with cookies and similar technologies, see our comprehensive cookie statement (https://www.blockpit.io/terms#cookie).
