Digital Assets are found in decentralised markets that are little or partially regulated.

The prices of Digital Assets are extremely volatile and may be affected by external factors (e.g. regulations, policies or events in the financial environment). The User must therefore take into account his/her objectives, level of experience and risk tolerance with regard to the Digital Assets. It is important for the User to understand all risks related to Blockchain and Digital Assets before using the Cruxpool Services. The User acknowledges that he/she fully understands these risks before using the Cruxpool Services or deciding to acquire Mining equipment.

The Services offered by Cruxpool/Ilium are based on Blockchain technology and the technology underlying each Blockchain (e.g. Ethereum) which are independent and not subject to the control of Cruxpool/Ilium. Any malfunction, error, fault, breach or unexpected operation of the Blockchain may result in the loss or diminution of the value of the Digital Assets or an error in the processing, either unexpectedly or unintentionally. Cruxpool/Ilium cannot be held responsible for any of these malfunctions.
The User is also aware that he/she is subject to the tax regulations of its jurisdiction and is fully responsible for any declaration and payment of any tax due to the relevant tax authority as required by applicable law. Ilium is under no obligation to indemnify the User in respect of his/her tax obligations and will not provide him/her with advice on tax matters.

Cruxpool/Ilium reserves the right to refuse the registration of any User who does not meet the required conditions such as good character, the regulatory conditions in force or any other element that contravenes the applicable regulatory conditions to which Cruxpool/Ilium is subject, without compensation or possible recourse and without Cruxpool/Ilium being obliged to justify its refusal to register the User.

Cruxpool/Ilium, as “Controller” of personal data (i.e. the entity that determines the purposes and means of processing personal data), collects and processes personal data (the “Personal Data”), i.e. any information about an identified or identifiable natural person relating to each User of the Services offered by Cruxpool/Ilium. The processing of Personal Data as described in these General Terms and Conditions applies to all Users, i.e. natural persons accessing or using the Cruxpool Website or services.
Cruxpool/Ilium’s Privacy and Data Protection Policy is available and accessible on the Cruxpool Website.
Cruxpool/Ilium processes Personal Data in accordance with applicable French and European legislation, in particular with Law No. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 on information technology, files and freedoms, and Regulation 206/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, repealing Directive 95/46/EC (the “Applicable Regulation “).
In the context of the operation of the Website and the provision of the services offered, Cruxpool/Ilium collects and processes the following categories of Personal Data relating to Users, depending on the services they use or to which they have subscribed or are about to subscribe:
- personal identification data (e.g. name, first name, address);
- personal details (e.g. date of birth, gender);
- identification data issued by public services (e.g. ID card number, passport number);
- electronic identification data (e.g. e-mail address, IP address);
- biometric identification data (e.g. dynamic signature);
- data relating to the activity of the data subject (e.g. employment status);
- data relating to the Customer’s financial situation (e.g. income, wealth, assets);
- identification data on the blockchain (e.g. the public address of the wallet);
- transactions with Ilium/Cruxpool;
- data relating to habits and preferences (e.g. data collected from browsing the Website and using the online forms on the Site).
In order to fulfil its legal obligations with regard to the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism as well as its obligations of vigilance with regard to its Users and/or Customers (“know your customer”) and when strictly necessary, Cruxpool/Ilium processes data relating to convictions and offences and the exercise of a public function.
With regard to the purpose of the processing of Personal Data, Cruxpool/Ilium processes or may process the User’s Personal Data according to the services to which he has subscribed or is about to subscribe:
- insofar as such processing is necessary for the provision of the service or the performance of a contract between Cruxpool/Ilium and the User and/or Customer or for the execution of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the User and/or Customer. Personal Data are processed for the implementation, administration and management of the contractual relationship as well as for the updating of information concerning the User and/or Customer;
- to the extent that such processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which Cruxpool/Ilium is subject, including, inter alia, anti-money laundering and anti-terrorist financing regulations; “know your customer” obligations, detection of fraudulent transactions, or any other legal obligation to which Cruxpool/Ilium is or may be subject under applicable regulations;
- insofar as such processing is necessary for Cruxpool/Ilium’s legitimate interest in providing quality services best suited to the needs of its Users and therefore for the purpose of developing commercial strategies, prospecting and marketing products and services promoted by Cruxpool/Ilium;
- insofar as such processing is necessary for Cruxpool/Ilium’s legitimate interest in ensuring the safety of its staff, Users and/or Customers and in protecting the property for which Cruxpool/Ilium is responsible, as well as to prevent all types of incidents and accidents.
The User who communicates to Cruxpool/Ilium Personal Data relating to third parties, for example family members, must be authorised to do so by these third parties and inform them that Cruxpool/Ilium processes Personal Data for the same purposes and in the same manner as set out in the section dedicated to the processing of Personal Data in these General Conditions.
Personal Data may be transferred by Cruxpool/Ilium to (i) external service providers whose intervention is necessary within the framework of the services provided to the User and/or Customer, (ii) external service providers whose intervention is necessary within the framework of Cruxpool/Ilium’s legal and regulatory obligations, in particular to get to “know its Customer”. These recipients of Personal Data are required to comply with legal and contractual obligations regarding the protection of Personal Data.
Cruxpool/Ilium only collects information that is necessary for the execution of the services to the User and/or Customer and for the fulfilment of its legal obligations. Personal Data is collected directly from the Customer (e.g. through a form when subscribing to a service) and from third parties (e.g. from certain national authorities depending on the services provided). Refusal to communicate Personal Data to Cruxpool/Ilium and the prohibition to process them is left to the discretion of the User and/or Customer, but could prevent the continuation of a relationship with Cruxpool/Ilium or the provision of certain products or services by Cruxpool/Ilium. Ilium/Cruxpool may also transfer Personal Data at the request of the User and/or Customer.
Each natural person has the following rights:
- A right of access to Data,
- A right to seek correction of incorrect Data,

- A right to limit the collection and processing of his/her Data,
- A right to the portability of his/her Data.

Cruxpool/Ilium undertakes not to keep the User’s Personal Data beyond the period strictly necessary for the purposes of their processing and in accordance with the Applicable Regulations. Cruxpool/Ilium undertakes to archive or delete the User’s Personal Data as soon as the purpose and/or duration of its retention expires. These maximum periods as detailed in Cruxpool/Ilium’s Privacy and Confidentiality Policy apply unless the User requests deletion or cessation of processing of his/her Personal Data before the expiry of these periods.
