As part of our Services, Hypernet offers a decentralized protocol for digital identity and scalable token agnostic payments access via its online offerings (“Hypernet Protocol”), including the ability to create a non-transferable non-fungible cryptographic token (“Hypernet.ID NFT”) for use with various services created by and promoted by third party entities or persons (“Third Party Collaborators”) via the Hypernet Protocol. An individual may have the results of a Know-Your-Customer report summarized as an Hypernet.ID NFT (or “Hypernet.ID User”) and may employ the Hypernet.ID NFT with Third Party Collaborators to minimize the exchange of personal information required to partake in a Third Party Collaborator’s services and offerings.
To create this Hypernet.ID NFT, we may process personal information to verify the Hypernet.ID User or may facilitate the transfer of Hypernet.ID User’s personal information to a third-party to verify identity and comply with legal obligations, such as Know-Your-Customer and Anti-Money Laundering requirements. Such processes to verify identity may include us: (i) using information provided by a Hypernet.ID User to match applicable legal identification documents and other identity information collected; (ii) screening against sanction, politically exposed persons, and adverse media listings; and (iii) confirming the Hypernet.ID User’s cryptocurrency wallet ownership.
Notice Regarding Use of Blockchain. If you use a Hypernet.ID NFT, any transactions that you choose to engage in will be conducted through the blockchain network governing the cryptocurrency wallet holding the Hypernet.ID NFT. Information about your transactions will be provided to the applicable blockchain network and may be accessible to third parties due to the nature of the blockchain protocol.
