Last Revised on September 14th 2022
We know these privacy policies can be tedious to get through. However, by continuing to use our Online Services, you agree to let us use your information in the ways discussed in this Policy, which is why you really should stick it out and read the whole thing.
We may modify this Policy from time to time. The date at the top of this Policy lets you know when this Policy was last revised. It is important to check back here occasionally to make sure you have read the latest policy. By continuing to access or use our Online Services after the policy changes, you agree to the current Policy.
QQL is an innovative platform that allows users to interact with our unique algorithms to customize and experiment with generative art. For users that purchased a QQL Token (as defined in our ToU), the platform will also support the minting of art customized on the Site (the “Work”) that is also connected with your wallet. This Policy applies to our online services, including our website platform qql.art (the “Site”), our social media accounts, and any future QQL online service that we develop (collectively the “Online Services”). For more information about the Online Services we offer and how they operate, view our ToU.
Our Online Services may contain links to third-party websites, or we may utilize services that are not owned or controlled by QQL. Be aware that we have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party website or service. We do not warrant the offerings of any third party and are not responsible or liable for any damage or loss caused, or alleged to be caused, by your use or reliance on content, goods, or services available through third parties. We strongly advise you to read the terms and conditions and privacy policies of any third-party website or service you engage with.
UNLESS SPECIFICALLY STATED OTHERWISE, ALL NFT AND PAYMENT TRANSACTIONS INITIATED THROUGH OUR SITE ARE FACILITATED AND RUN BY THIRD-PARTY ELECTRONIC WALLET PROVIDERS AND PAYMENT PROCESSORS, AND BY USING OUR SITE, YOU AGREE THAT YOU ARE GOVERNED BY THE TERMS OF SERVICE AND PRIVACY POLICIES FOR THESE APPLICABLE THIRD PARTIES.
“Personal Information” is any information that may allow for an individual to be personally identified. For example, your name, email address, social security number, phone number, residential address, and credit card details are all considered Personal Information. Other information, such as your interests, economic status, customer number, IP address, geolocation, education, and job title, may also be considered Personal Information if that information, when combined with other information, is used to reveal your identity.
We only collect Personal Information from you when you voluntarily consent for us to use it.
You voluntarily consent for us to collect, use, and store your Personal Information by:
All purchases of QQL Tokens, minted Works, and subsequent sales of minted Works are processed directly through the third-party services Archipelago and OpenSea. This means we never personally see or store your credit card information or wallet private key information when you use our Online Services. When making a purchase through such a third-party vendor, we cannot control and are not liable for how your purchases are processed, and you are subject to such third parties’ terms of service and privacy policies.
We don’t personally require you to have a user account to browse our Online Services or to mint a Work. However, if you wish to save, favorite, or mint a Work that you customized, you will be required to connect your wallet, which will give you access to such offerings. You may also be required to create other third-party accounts while interacting with our Online Services, such as via Archipelago, OpenSea, MetaMask, WalletConnect, or a social media platform (the “Third-Party Accounts”). We have no control over Third-Party Accounts or the Personal Information requested by these third parties to set up such Third-Party Accounts. We do not have access to passwords created for Third-Party Accounts, and the third-party company completely administers these passwords.
Cookies are small files that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your browser when using and interacting with our Online Services.

We do not collect your Personal Information to sell, rent, trade, or otherwise abuse it. We only use your Personal Information for our legitimate business purposes, including, but not limited to, the following reasons::
Although we try to limit who we share your Personal Information with, there are situations where sharing is necessary for our legitimate business purposes. We may share your Personal Information with third parties in the following ways:
QQL only keeps your Personal Information for as long as necessary to provide our Online Services and per our legal obligations. Depending on your residency, under the law (e.g., the California Consumer Privacy Act and General Data Protection Regulation), you may also have the right to request at any time for us to:
Regardless of whether we are obligated under the law or not, if you would like us to do any of the above, you can contact us using the information provided at the end of this Policy. We will do our best to try to fulfill your requests. However, sometimes we may be required to retain your Personal Information to comply with our administrative, legal, and/or regulatory obligations. For example, we may be required to keep a history of transactions to report our taxes or may need to retain some Personal Information for law enforcement purposes (e.g., fraud monitoring, detection, and prevention). Additionally, we reserve the right to de-identify your data by removing identifying details rather than delete it completely. Please note that information stored in connection with an NFT sale or purchase, or the minting of a Work, cannot be edited or deleted, and we do not have custody or control over any blockchains.
We are a business that is formed and operated in the United States. However, in addition to storing Personal Information directly onto our servers, we also may use some third-party cloud storage systems and apps to ensure that your Personal Information is not lost. These third parties may store and transfer your Personal Information outside of the United States. In certain situations, the courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies, or security authorities in those countries might be entitled to access your Personal Information. If you choose to disconnect the MetaMask or WalletConnect extension from our Services, we will make reasonable efforts but cannot guarantee that all personal information associated with that account will be deleted from our servers; please reach out directly if you wish to ensure that all information has been deleted. We reserve the right to retain aggregated information that is disassociated with your personal information.
We always use our best efforts to pick reputable third-party software, platforms, services, and apps. However, we do not control such third parties and are not liable for any breach of privacy or data security that occurs due to the fault of these third parties.
We are committed to protecting your Personal Information and have physical, electronic, and managerial systems and procedures in place to help safeguard your Personal Information. Unfortunately, no system can guarantee complete security. Third-party viruses or security failures may result in your Personal Information being compromised. You can help prevent unauthorized access to your Personal Information by using antivirus software, creating strong passwords, and limiting access to your personal computer. In the unlikely event that your Personal Information is compromised due to a security breach on our end, we will notify you, per the law, as soon as reasonably possible.
Our Online Services are not targeted or intended to be used by people under the age of 18. All children between the ages of 13 and 17 must have permission from their parent or guardian before accessing our Online Services. You must be over the age of 18 to purchase a mint pass, mint a Work, or sell a minted Work. If you live outside of the United States, your country may apply stricter age limits. In some cases, even if you are older than 13, you may not be legally allowed to access our Online Services regardless of having parental permission. We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from anyone under the age of 13 and delete such Personal Information as soon as we become aware of it.
We will always try to resolve your concerns about our privacy practices promptly and hope that together we can find a solution without involving costly legal channels. However, if we cannot agree, by using our Online Services, you agree to binding arbitration rather than formal court proceedings to have the matter resolved. You can read more about this process in our ToU. THE DISPUTE RESOLUTION TERMS IN OUR TOU MATERIALLY AFFECT YOUR ABILITY TO BRING A LAWSUIT AGAINST US IN REGARDS TO THIS POLICY AND OUR ONLINE SERVICES. PLEASE READ THESE TERMS CAREFULLY.
This Policy and our ToU represent the entire and exclusive agreement between our users and us. All previous written and oral agreements and communications related to the subject matter of this Policy and our ToU are superseded.
If you have any questions about this Policy, our ToU or the QQL Online Services, or would like a copy of this Policy or our ToU mailed to you electronically, you can contact us directly at:
