Information For Persons Subject to EU Data Protection Law
While customers who are located in the European Union (“EU”), European Economic Area (“EEA”) or the Channel Islands, or other locations subject to EU data protection law (collectively, “Europe”) are customers of our US entity, we recognize and, to the extent applicable to us, adhere to relevant EU data protection laws. For purposes of this section, “personal data” has the meaning provided in the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”).
Lawful bases for processing
We process personal data subject to GDPR on one or more of the following legal bases:
- Legal Obligation: to conduct anti-fraud and to fulfill our retention and other legal obligations;
- Legitimate Interest: to monitor the usage of RATbits, conduct automated and manual security checks of our Services, to protect our rights; and
- Consent: to market RATbits and our Services. You may withdraw your consent at any time without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before consent is withdrawn.
European privacy rights
European residents have the following rights under GDPR, subject to certain exceptions provided under the law, with respect to their personal data:
- Rights to Access and Rectification. You may submit a request that RATbits disclose the personal data that we process about you and correct any inaccurate personal data.
- Right to Erasure. You may submit a request that RATbits delete the personal data that we have about you.

Collection and transfer of data outside the EEA
RATbits operates with some of our systems based outside of Europe. As a result, we may transfer personal data from Europe to third countries outside of Europe, including the United States, under the following conditions:
- Contractual Obligation. Where transfers are necessary to satisfy our obligation to you to provide you with our Services and customer support services, and to optimize and enhance RATbits; and
- Consent: where you have consented to the transfer of your personal data to a third country.
Where transfers to a third country are based on your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time. Please understand, however, that our services may not be available if we are unable to transfer personal data to third countries.
When we transfer personal data to third countries, we endeavor to ensure adequate safeguards are implemented, for example through the use of standard contractual clauses or Privacy Shield certification.
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act
The Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) sets forth a Notification and Counter Notification process initiated by a party complaining of alleged copyright infringement on the RATbits Platform. We may share information of the notifying, counter-notifying party, and any involved third parties, such as a Collector, of an allegedly infringing artwork to facilitate communication between the relevant parties for the purposes of complying with or resolving a DMCA dispute or allegation of copyright infringement.
Nothing in this Policy restricts our ability to:
- Comply with applicable law, rules, or regulations, including the DMCA;
- Comply with a civil, criminal, or regulatory inquiry, investigation, subpoena, or lawful court order;
