BitOasis does not allow persons under 18 to register for any service, and we do not knowingly collect any personally identifiable information from persons under the age of 18. If you are aware of someone under the age of 18 using our Platform please contact us immediately by contact form.

5. Security

We have established both physical and electronic procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect. For this reason we use SSL certificates to secure our website. However, the internet is an open system, and we can make no guarantees as to the security or privacy of your information submitted to the Platform. For this reason, we recommend that you use anti-virus software, routine credit checks, firewalls and other precautions to protect yourself from security and privacy threats.

6. Third Party Websites

The Platform may contain links to other websites that we believe may be of interest or use to you. We provide these links solely as a convenience to you. Links may be also posted by other users of the Platform. When accessing a third party website through our Platform, you acknowledge that you are aware that these third party websites are not screened for privacy or security issues by us. Please note that our Privacy Policy and information collection, use and sharing procedures do not apply to other websites. We take no responsibility for and incur no liability for other websites’ collection, use or sharing of information. Please review the privacy policies provided by each website linked to the Platform to familiarize yourself with the procedures of such websites. Please be aware that this Privacy Policy, and any other policies in place, in addition to any amendments, do not create rights enforceable by third parties.

You agree that we may disclose your information to authorities if compelled to by a court order. Additionally, you agree that we may disclose your information if we reasonably believe that you have violated UAE laws, or international laws or the terms of our Terms of Service or Privacy Policy or if we believe that a third party is at risk of bodily harm. In the event that we receive a subpoena affecting your privacy, we may elect to notify you to give you an opportunity to file a motion to quash the subpoena, or we may attempt to quash it ourselves, but we are not obligated to do either. We may also proactively report you and release your information without receiving any request to third parties where we believe that it is proper to do so for legal reasons, where your actions violate any law of the UAE or any other country having jurisdiction over us, the Platform, or our Terms of Service. You release us from any damages that may arise from or relate to the release of your information to a request from law enforcement agencies or private litigants.

9. Third Party Access to Your Information

Through our Privacy Policy you agree to disclose your information to us, we do use third party individuals and organizations to assist us, including contractors, web hosts, and others to help provide our services through the Platform. For example, we use Service Providers to assist in securing your personal information.

Throughout the course of our provision of our services to you through our Platform, we may delegate our authority to collect, access, use, and disseminate your information. It is therefore necessary that you grant the third parties we may use in the course of our business the same rights that you afford us under this Privacy Policy.

As we do not control these third parties, you agree not to hold us liable for the actions of any of these third parties, even if we would normally be held vicariously liable for their actions, and that you must take legal action against them directly should they commit any tort or other actionable wrong against you.
