Welcome to MyEtherWallet, a free, open-source, client-side tool for interacting
with the blockchain. MyEtherWallet, Inc. values privacy and we make a
concerted effort to minimize and, to the extent possible, eliminate the
exposure of personal data during the use of our interface. MyEtherWallet
does not collect, hold, or store keys, account information, or passwords.
We do not collect data passively, do not monetize the collection of data,
and do not use your data for marketing or advertising.
(“Policy”) describes how MyEtherWallet collects, uses, and shares personal
information of people who visit our website (the “Site”), use our mobile
application, MEWconnect (the “App”), or otherwise use our services
(collectively, the “Services”).
This Policy applies to anyone who accesses the Services. Please read the
Policy carefully to understand our practices regarding your information
and how we will treat it. By visiting the Site, App, and/or using the
Services, you acknowledge that the collection, use, and sharing of your
information will take place as described in this Policy.
So that we are clear about the terminology we are using, when we use the
about an individual that (either by itself or when combined with information
from other available sources) allows that individual to be identified,
including, the individual’s name, telephone number, or e-mail address.
Due to the inherent transparency of many blockchains, including the Ethereum
Blockchain, transactions that individuals broadcast via MyEtherWallet may
be publicly accessible. This includes, but is not limited to, your public
sending address, the public address of the receiver, the amount sent or
received, and any other data a user has chosen to include in a given
transaction. Information stored on a blockchain may be public, immutable,
and difficult or even impossible to remove or delete. 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, including law enforcement. Users are encouraged to review how
privacy and transparency on the blockchain works.
