We may track and collect the following categories of information when you visit our Site: (1) IP addresses; (2) domain servers; (3) types of computers accessing the Site; and (4) types of web browsers used to access the Site (collectively “Traffic Data”). Traffic Data is anonymous information that does not personally identify you but is helpful for marketing purposes or for improving your experience on the Site. We also may use “cookies” to customize content specific to your interests, to ensure that you do not see the same advertisement repeatedly, and to store your password to login to visit the Site.
(ii) We may also collect cookies to determine how many people visit a particular page. This information can help in our efforts to provide better service. We do not collect or store any personally identifying information except that which is required for you to order a subscription to CryptoStops.
(iii) Users should understand that certain areas within the CryptoStops website may not function properly if the web browser will not accept cookies.

In order for you to access certain premium services and to purchase products that we offer via the Site, we may require you to provide us with a minimum required amount of certain information that personally identifies you (“Personal Information”). Personal Information may include the following categories of information: (1) Contact data (such as your name, user name, login password, mailing address, and e-mail address); (2) Financial Data (such as your account or credit card number and credit card information necessary for billing purposes and to provide service to you); and (3) Demographic Data (such as you are over 18 years of age, or if you voluntarily agree, your income). Only our authorized payment vendor will have access to this information. We will not sell or rent this information to anyone. If you inquire with us about an order or subscription, our customer service staff will ask you to verify your identity by confirming Personal information already in your record. If you post messages to any of our chat groups, bulletin boards, or forums, or otherwise complete online forms, surveys, or contest entries, any information provided in such communication may be collected as Personal Information. CryptoStops will not sell, rent, or otherwise share your Personal information or email address with anyone unless required to by a law enforcement agency that takes the proper steps to require it be produced to them.

If we ask for information, you should go directly to our website to enter the requested information. This is for your own protection to prevent you from being victimized by fraudulent scams on the internet.Any data you submit to us through a form is transferred to us via a Secure Sockets Layer – an encryption protocol – and is kept in databases that cannot be accessed from outside our firewall.

3.4. SUBMITTING A REQUEST REGARDING A DECEASED USER’S ACCOUNT.
People expect CryptoStops to keep their information safe, even in the event of their death. We recognize that many people pass away without leaving clear instructions about how to manage their online accounts. We can work with immediate family members and representatives who can prove they have a legal right to close the account of a deceased person where appropriate. In certain circumstances we may provide content from a deceased user’s account upon proof of legal standing from a Court giving authoritiy to the representative of a deceased’s person’s estate, and an original copy of a death certificate for the deceased. In all of these cases, our primary responsibility is to keep your information secure, safe, and private. We cannot provide passwords or other login details. Any decision to satisfy a request about a deceased user will be made only after a careful review.
