Users may, however, visit our Website anonymously. In such a case, we will collect personal identification information from such users only if they voluntarily submit such information to us. Users can always refuse to supply personally identification information. This may prevent them though from engaging in certain Website - related activities.
Non-personal identification information that we collect

B. Why We Collect This Information
We collect and use your Personal Data information for a variety of reasons. We need some information to enter into and perform our obligations – for example your contact and payment details.
Some information processing is required by the various laws in place due to our anti-fraud / anti money laundering screening obligations or in the public interest such as making sure we verify our customers' identities.
Some information is processed because you have given your consent to that, which can be withdrawn at any time in your Account preferences and settings.
Other information we collect and use because we have legitimate business interests to do so, having taken into account your rights, interests and freedoms.
If this Personal Data information is not provided, we may not be able to provide our Services to you.
The collected information is in addition necessary in order to pay/reward our users when they are targeted by commercials/advertisements. To properly target a user we need as much information about that user as possible, because in itself, ZoidCoin is a decentralized ad-targeting service. Without this information it cannot function.
In such a way, the targeted user is receiving proper commercials/ads that is paid/rewarded for, improving its customer experience on our Platform.
Our users are indirectly paid/rewarded for providing this user information. The user provides the information, then, the advertiser/company in our Platform that buys ads, delivers ads to the respective user and the user receives payment in ZCN (the ZoidCoin decentralized Token/currency).
Without collecting user information our service makes no sense and ceases to exist, so, collecting this user information is crucial for our service to exist.
