Who we are
We are Get A Blockchain Wallet (GABW). Our website address is: http://getablockchainwallet.com/
Get A Blockchain Wallet is a website that publishes independent created and curated content (ie: reviews, articles, videos, infographics, emails, etc) that helps people learn about cryptocurrency wallets available on the market, and to provide them direct links to the manufacturer’s website, where they may purchase any wallet they like and receive it by express shipping, directly from the maker.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
Currently, we use only freely available tools (Go0gle, W0rdpress, Y0ast, Jet Pakc) for analytics and site performance monitoring. You can easily see them by looking at the source of any page on the site.
Aside from these tools, currently necessary to run the site optimally, we do not share your data with any outside party.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
Where we send your data
Visitor comments may be checked through an automated spam detection service.
Our website’s forms are the easiest and fastest way to reach us. We make every effort to respond to messages within 1 business day, though it may vary depending on the volume of messages we receive.
We fully respect your privacy. We have zero interest in doing anything wrong. Our entire business is built on trust and reputation. We are here to serve you the best, clearest, most helpful information to help you determine the best way to protect your crypto assets in proper safe storage. That’s it.
How we protect your data
We don’t store any local copies of your data. There are literally zero vulnerabilities on our end. Any data monitoring tool we use is built, maintained and secured by some of the largest, most well resourced tech companies in the world.
If they can’t secure their tools, millions of sites would be at risk. Every day that goes by without incident is an additional day they are unlikely to suffer an incident in the future.
We therefore, like billions of other businesses and websites, are able to very confidently (99%) rely on them to do their best to keep their networks and tools as secure as possible.
Why just 99%? Because no site is impervious, no technology unhackable or uncrackable. To pretend that the possibility does not exist, would be a lie, and any site that tells you that they are 100% safe is lying to your face.
We do the very best that is reasonably possible, and we go the extra mile to keep things always secure. That said, there is always a possibility that something can happen. So just like you should be cautious about sending any information on any site, you should do the same here and everywhere you go online, and everywhere else you go in life.
We also protect your data by educating you right here about what we do, how we do it, why we do it, and by reminding you that you are and always will be responsible for your own data, ultimately. So be careful and don’t go doing foolish things with your data. Especially not when it comes to data that’s as important as your blockchain information.
That’s why we don’t sell any wallets directly on our site.
The only thing we do is refer you via “pretty” (easy to read) links to our affiliate website page addresses on the original wallet manufacturer websites.
What data breach procedures we have in place
There is no data to breach hosted on our end. Any data breaches that could ever potentially occur would be breaches into some of the most secure technology companies on the World Wide Web. If any such breaches ever occur, those external companies used by billions of websites are the correct address for implementing their proper breach procedures.
What third parties we receive data from
The data we receive from third parties is all from the same tools listed above.
And, with the use of those same tools, we receive data from people all around the world, just like you, who choose to send us information, ie: an email address or wordpress username when they signup to get our updates by email or wordpress notification.
What automated decision making and/or profiling we do with user data
We do not do any decision making in any automated fashion. Our site uses simple widgets to show Related Posts, however they are not based on any personal information whatsoever.
If such code is of concern to you, then you should direct your comments to the maker of that tool, as we have no control over their source code.
Industry regulatory disclosure requirements
We disclose everything required by industry regulations. Everyone should. If we all ignored the rules, then civilization would literally break down. Without respect for the social contract of being a society of peace and laws, there is no good outcome.
Wherever you are, be sure you maintain the highest ethics and follow the rules, except of course those rules that are unethical or otherwise unacceptably wrong.
