ShapeShift Privacy Policy

Last Modified: May 31, 2022

On May 25th 2022, as part of ShapeShift AG’s efforts to decentralize, ShapeShift Global Limited transferred the ownership and operation of all consumer ShapeShift software products to Fox Foundation, a nonprofit foundation formed in Lichtenstein with the purpose of transitioning operation of such platform and software to the ShapeShift community, which is a decentralized autonomous organization. For more information on these efforts, see this article. As a result of this transition, user data in connection with user accounts of the ShapeShift platform were transferred from ShapeShift Global Limited to Fox Foundation in order for our users to enjoy a seamless transition and to avoid any downtime of the platform or the deletion of their accounts, which is a legitimate interest of ShapeShift Global Limited. Please note, that if you have a user account on the ShapeShift platform you have a right to object to the transfer of your user account. If you wish to exercise your right to object to such transfer, you may do so by emailing privacy@foxfoundation.io and requesting that the Fox Foundation delete your account and any associated personal data (subject to legal requirements) within 30 days of this notice. IF YOUR SHAPESHIFT ACCOUNT IS DELETED, YOU WILL LOSE ACCESS TO YOUR SHAPESHIFT NATIVE WALLET UNLESS YOU WROTE DOWN YOUR SEED PHRASE. Additionally, you will no longer be eligible for any benefits accrued in connection with a registered ShapeShift account, such as entry in promotions. For further details, see our terms of service. If your account has been deleted under your right to object, you may re-register for a new account at any time.

When we started ShapeShift, a future world of natively digital assets was very theoretical
