Information We Collect: When you interact with us through the Services, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below (and for any other business purpose stated when collecting your Personal Data or as otherwise set forth in applicable data privacy laws, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (the “CCPA”)):
Personal Data That You Provide Through the Services: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you sign up for our mailing list or contact us with inquiries.
Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with Multicoin through the Services, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. We may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by Multicoin’s affiliates, agents or service providers. The Services may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers.
In operating the Services, we may use a technology called "cookies." A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Services gives to your browser when you access the Services. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Services and help us analyze Services usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Services without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Services features.
Aggregated Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Services, we often conduct research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregated and/or de-identified basis, and we may share this aggregated and/or de-identified data with our affiliates, agents and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated and/or de-identified user statistics and other metrics related to our Services in order to describe our products or services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
Certain other ways we may use your Personal Data are as follows:
- To administer a survey, promotion or other Service feature.
- To allow us to better respond to your requests.
- To troubleshoot problems with the Services.
- To provide any legitimate business service or product.
Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information: Multicoin is not in the business of selling your Personal Data. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: We, like many businesses, sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
Legal Requirements: We may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of Multicoin, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Services or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
Your Choices: You can visit the Site without providing any Personal Data. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data, you may not be able to use certain Services.
Security: We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Services from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or email transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from the Services may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data to us via the Internet.
California Resident Rights
If you are a California resident, you have the rights set forth in this section. Please see the “Exercising Your Rights” section below for instructions regarding how to exercise these rights. Please note that we may process Personal Data of our customers’ end users or employees in connection with our provision of certain services to our customers. If we are processing your Personal Data as a service provider, you should contact the entity that collected your Personal Data in the first instance to address your rights with respect to such data.
You have the right to request certain information about our collection and use of your Personal Data over the past 12 months. In response, we will provide you with the following information:
- The categories of Personal Data that we have collected about you.
- The categories of sources from which that Personal Data was collected.
- The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling your Personal Data.
- The categories of third parties with whom we have shared your Personal Data.
- The specific pieces of Personal Data that we have collected about you.
If we have disclosed your Personal Data to any third parties for a business purpose over the past 12 months, we will identify the categories of Personal Data shared with each category of third-party recipient. If we have sold your Personal Data over the past 12 months, we will identify the categories of Personal Data sold to each category of third-party recipient.
You have the right to request that we delete the Personal Data that we have collected about you. Under the CCPA, this right is subject to certain exceptions: for example, we may need to retain your Personal Data to provide you with the Services or complete a transaction or other action you have requested. If your deletion request is subject to one of these exceptions, we may deny your deletion request.
Exercising Your Rights
To exercise the rights described above, you must send us a request that (1) provides sufficient information to allow us to verify that you are either the person about whom we have collected Personal Data or are an agent authorized by that person, including without limitation your name and email address, and (2) describes your request in sufficient detail to allow us to understand, evaluate and respond to it. Each request that meets both of these criteria will be considered a “Valid Request.” We may not respond to requests that do not meet these criteria. We will only use Personal Data provided in a Valid Request to verify your identity and complete your request.
We will work to respond to your Valid Request within 45 days of receipt. We will not charge you a fee for making a Valid Request unless your Valid Request(s) is excessive, repetitive or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that your Valid Request warrants a fee, we will notify you of the fee and explain that decision before completing your request.
You may submit a Valid Request using the following methods:
- Email us at: email@example.com
- Submit a form at this address: Attn: Legal, Multicoin Capital Management, LLC 501 West Ave., Suite 3803, Austin, Texas, 78701
You may also authorize an agent (an “Authorized Agent”) to exercise your rights on your behalf. To do this, you must provide your Authorized Agent with written permission to exercise your rights on your behalf, and we may request a copy of this written permission from your Authorized Agent when they make a request on your behalf.
Personal Data Sales Opt-Out and Opt-In
In this section, we use the term ‘sell’ as it is defined in the CCPA. Over the past 12 months, we have not sold any Personal Data to third parties. We also do not sell the Personal Data of minors under 16 years of age.
We Will Not Discriminate Against You for Exercising Your Rights Under the CCPA
We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights under the CCPA. We will not deny you our goods or services, charge you different prices or rates, or provide you a lower quality of goods and services if you exercise your rights under the CCPA. However, we may offer different tiers of our Services as allowed by applicable data privacy laws (including the CCPA) with varying prices, rates or levels of quality of the goods or services you receive related to the value of Personal Data that we receive from you.

Submissions to Multicoin
Due to the large number of business plan ideas and related materials that Multicoin reviews, and the similarity of many such plans and materials, we cannot agree to obligations of confidentiality, non-use, or non-disclosure with regard to any information or materials submitted or provided to or otherwise shared with us. By submitting information or materials to Multicoin, you (or anyone acting on your behalf) agree that any such information or materials will not be considered confidential or proprietary, and that Multicoin is free to use it without condition. In no event will Multicoin be limited in, or restricted from, the pursuit of any opportunities, either alone or with third parties.
Although certain individuals are identified in the Services as “Partners” or “General Partners,” such titles are not intended to indicate that any such individual is actually a partner or general partner of any partnership as those terms are used for legal purposes. Such titles should not be construed to indicate that an individual has any ownership interest in Multicoin or a Multicoin affiliate nor should such titles be construed to indicate that an individual has any particular decision-making authority or responsibility.
You are responsible for all information, content, and materials you contribute, disclose, or share in any manner on or through the Services and you represent and warrant you have all rights necessary to do so. You are responsible for all your activity in connection with the Services.
Nothing on the Services constitutes professional or financial advice of any kind (including business, employment, investment advisory, accounting, tax, and/or legal advice). Advice from a suitably qualified professional should always be sought in relation to any particular matter or circumstance. Nothing on the Services constitutes or forms a part of any offer for sale or subscription of, or any invitation to offer to buy or subscribe for, any securities, nor should it or any part of it form the basis of, or be relied upon in connection with, any contract or commitment whatsoever.
You acknowledge and agree that neither Multicoin nor any other person (including, without limitation, any affiliate of Multicoin) is in any way obligated to invest in any business you are associated with or offer you to invest in any Multicoin entity or affiliate. Further, Multicoin makes no representation, warranty, or guarantee that any use of its services will result in your employment or engagement as a consultant or receiving career development services of any kind.
THE SERVICES AND THE INFORMATION CONTAINED HERE ARE PROVIDED “AS IS.” NEITHER MULTICOIN NOR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATES IS PROVIDING ANY WARRANTIES OR REPRESENTATIONS REGARDING THE SERVICES. MULTICOIN AND ITS AFFILIATES DISCLAIM ALL WARRANTIES AND REPRESENTATIONS OF ANY KIND WITH REGARD TO THE SERVICES, INCLUDING ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY, NON-INFRINGEMENT OF THIRD-PARTY RIGHTS, FREEDOM FROM VIRUSES OR OTHER HARMFUL CODE, OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. MULTICOIN AND ITS AFFILIATES DO NOT WARRANT THE ACCURACY, ADEQUACY, OR COMPLETENESS OF THE INFORMATION AND MATERIALS CONTAINED ON THE SERVICES AND EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM LIABILITY FOR ERRORS OR OMISSIONS IN THE MATERIALS AND INFORMATION.
To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, under no circumstances and regardless of the form of action, whether in contract, warranty, tort (including negligence), strict liability, or otherwise, will Multicoin or its affiliates be liable to you or any other person for (i) any amount in excess of $100 or (ii) any consequential, incidental, special, punitive, or exemplary damages, regardless of whether Multicoin or its affiliates have been apprised of the likelihood of such damages occurring.
To the fullest extent allowed by applicable law, you agree to indemnify and hold Multicoin, its affiliates, officers, agents, employees, and partners harmless from and against any and all claims, liabilities, damages (actual and consequential), losses and expenses (including attorneys’ fees) arising from or in any way related to any third-party claims relating to (a) your use of the Services (including any actions taken by a third-party using your account), and (b) your violation of these terms.
You and Multicoin agree that these terms are the complete and exclusive statement of the mutual understanding between you and Multicoin and supersede all prior agreements and understandings relating to such subject matter. This Agreement is governed by the internal substantive laws of the State of Texas, without respect to its conflict of laws provisions. You expressly agree to submit to the exclusive personal jurisdiction of the state and federal courts sitting in the City of Austin in the State of Texas. These terms are binding on you as well as your successors and permitted assigns. If any provision of these terms is found to be unenforceable or invalid, that provision will be limited or eliminated, to the minimum extent necessary, so that these terms shall otherwise remain in full force and effect and enforceable.
