A mere sentence later in the Jumio policy they explain that they are not in control of your personal data and that they only use your data as ordered to by the controller of the data, in this case, that is Bittrex. To make it utterly confusing they then add to the baffle with the following contradictory statement.
“Notwithstanding the above, Jumio may process certain individual users’ information in pseudonymized or anonymized form for its own purposes, thereby acting as a controller in this limited regard.”
Between the two policy pages, we learn that
1.Jumio does what Bittrex tells it to.
2. Jumio does what it wants, sometimes.
3.Bittrex and Jumio both are essentially acting as a broker for your private data which is shared with third parties- from whom they collect funds for their advertisements and integrations on the Bittrex site.
It means they are your data-pimps, if, in fact, you are a verified user. Even if you have been comfortable for a while, and have not been asked to verify- just watch and wait because it is coming.
It is outrageous that they make users vulnerable to such vague and exploitable privacy practices but it goes up a few notches on the red flag list when they stamp out the voice of a user because of his quotation of their own policy. Why so hush-hush?
They would be wise to let people have their money, and if they are required by law to act in this manner then they need to prove it in writing to the individuals that are being forced to send selfies to a vendor who is likely selling data.
This would not be the first time that Bittrex comes up in social media with shady practice alerts and scam accusations. In fact, one user of the bitcointalk.org forum started a thread labeled “Bittrex serves great tacos” which shows the address that is supposed to be where Bittrex is located only…the address advertised leads to a taco shop in Las Vegas Nevada. Que Paso?
