Privacy Interface User Contract governing Data, Rules and the Protection of Privacy:

Section 1:

No personal user Data is Sold. No personal data of users is willingly shared. Full-stop. Your data is visible only to the Privacy Interface system. Privacy Interface alone uses your data to facilitate your use of the website. When ordering deliveries your address, order name (can be a pseudonym) and order email (should be a randomly named email address created for this purpose) alone are temporarily transferred to a seller and then deleted. No one other than the administrators of Apex Interface have access to your data. Your data does not willingly go beyond this URL or the server(s) it is based on.

The Privacy Interface system stores the personal information that you input in your user profile, including uploaded product photo pictures if you are a seller. Privacy Interface administrators alone can see the internal profile information. This data persists only until the user who inputs this data deletes it. Privacy Interface can also process data deletion upon request from a user in good standing. All users can see, edit, or delete outright their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their system username or close their account within 30 days of an order or sale for fraud prevention purposes or if they are a ‘banned user’). Accounts that are clearly computer controlled or spam advertising accounts will be locked and their data used to prevent that computer or person from creating more accounts.

A user is defined as anyone who has an account in good standing on PrivacyInterface.com, any service, app or program operated by Privacy Interface. Banned user data is also not transferred out of Privacy Interface systems (except in instances where a user is banned for violating the data privacy of another user, the violated user gains the details of the user that violated their data privacy and system evidence proving the privacy violation to facilitate legal action). ‘Banned users’ are not considered users and are subject to abuse deterrence rules and forfeit internal control over their input data to prevent the abuse of other Privacy Interface users and Privacy Interface. The banned user’s full data is retained and used to stop them from re-registering permanently.

For deliveries the seller receives your address (or a safe delivery box address, for ultimate privacy, where available) in order to facilitate a physical delivery. You have the ability to set a ‘delivery name’ or ‘pseudonym’ that is not your real name in order to withhold your name from the sellers. Sellers do not have to include their details in the package unless required by law in their legal jurisdiction. Privacy Interface will not enforce laws that are counter to Privacy Interface privacy standards. The Privacy Interface system holds information from both sides for use if an order goes missing or is damaged or is disputed. Sellers or buyers who violate any performance standards receive a strike on their account, 3 strikes, of any kind and a user is banned in order to maintain the highest service standard.

Exception to user privacy regulations to facilitate medical emergency intervention in emergency medical situations:

Section 2:

In the event that a life risking medical situation is relayed by a user privately in messages or instant chat to another user, then and only then, upon permission of that user or realisation that a ‘cry for help’ is being made is an Privacy Interface user permitted to report information directly to authorities about other users without becoming a banned user. This is solely for medical situations and not threats of criminal activity, nor perceptions of mental illness as almost all instances of such are sarcastic or insincere.

Reporting the contents of a private message of a user without their direct permission will always result in an account ban with the exception of instances of life saving situations. An example of an exception situation: Person 1 is reporting heart pain to Person 2 in chat and saying they think they are having a heart attack and then no typing and no replies and online status being constant. In this instance Person 2 can relay location information about Person 1 to a national EMS/Emergency medical responder/Ambulance service system.

Users who are banned as a result of violating the privacy of another user agree to have their data relayed to the person whose data they violated for retaliatory legal measures from the victim in which Privacy Interface will provide evidence of the data violation visible by Privacy Interface.

Measures against Data violation of Privacy Interface users by other Privacy Interface users:

Section 3:

If a user violates the Data privacy of another user Privacy Interface reserves the right to present or publish the details of users who violated the privacy of other users, upon becoming banned users. This is done only in cases where irrefutable proof is ascertained from a system level or proof beyond reasonable contextual doubt is presented by a victim with a clear and system visible connection and pattern of observation detected by the party that engaged in privacy violation (copying or relaying material from any private, or friend visible activity of any user on Privacy Interface).

Users who befriend other users to encourage them to make damaging or illegal statements to then report on them will be banned and have their details relayed to the victim for legal measures and Privacy Interface will provide evidence to the defence of any individuals manipulated as a result of rival person, company or state agency/political entity entrapment attempts. Privacy Interface reserves the right to investigate whether a person has a criminal, public or dark-web record of violating the privacy of other people online and to pre-ban or reactively ban these people in order to protect the privacy of Privacy Interface users against these unethical serial privacy violating persons or entities.

Measures against Data violations of Privacy Interface, Privacy Interface users by fake users intending to gather data:

Section 4:

Privacy Interface records failed login attempts and maintains a database of IP addresses of failed login attempts for security purposes. Privacy Interface temporarily blocks IP addresses from form input fields that fail logins 3 times. Privacy Interface may use this data to trace & report potential false-user login hacking attempts.

Any person engaging in market advertising, corporate espionage, or political/private investigative agents caught attempting to establish relationships or engaging in privacy intrusion efforts on Privacy Interface targetting any users, for any reason, to record personal information, statements or engage in privacy violations of any kind are rightfully treated as generic privacy violators and are banned and all such state or private company employed persons agree to have their full details given to all of the users whose privacy it can be determined by Privacy Interface that they managed to violate or are in a position to violate. This additionally applies to corporate espionage attempts; where a user can be seen to be building up a relationship with an employee of a company or a member of the public to then leak statements or business plans for reasons of publicity, political/financial gain or any other reasons.

The data of privacy violating users will be used by Privacy Interface to facilitate legal action against them. Political activists/Private Investigators/State Agencies/Journalists who violated the privacy of specific Privacy Interface users or the overall Privacy Interface community acknowledge that information indicating they intended to or managed to violate the privacy of any user of Privacy Interface is being recorded openly by Privacy Interface with their knowledge and as such is viable to use against them in court. Privacy Interface will also transfer the identity data of the privacy violating user or users to the user or users who these investigators/journalists/political agents violated to faciliate individual and class action retaliatory legal cases against them for privacy violations or damages.

All private communications on Privacy Interface are private communications and any external party violating this will be pursued with legal action by both Privacy Interface and encouraged to be pursued individually or with Privacy Interface publicity supported class action lawsuits by the users who are theoretically violated. The data of users banned for privacy violations of other users ceases to be private as determined by Privacy Interfaces written rules.

User Data restrictions on Sellers

Section 5:

The market system facilitating transactions relays your delivery address to a seller only when you complete a buy order for an item from that specific seller.

That seller is required by Privacy Interface to immediately delete your address label details after printing and dispatch

To prevent fraud or payment reversals in the future item-specific or detailed records of the transaction are maintained long term exclusively by Privacy Interface. Card details are securely stored on Stripe payment processor servers and these details are not stored on Privacy Interface and are not shared with sellers. Sellers never recieve direct customer financial details. Sellers who attempt to ask customers for their financial details in any manner will be banned & reported to law enforcement. Privacy Interface does not transfer funds for sales to sellers until receipt of the item is confirmed or a length of time has passed depending on the standing of the seller. This minimizes risk over cancellations.

Privacy Interface user data does not and never belongs to any external company or person (sellers are external persons and user data never belongs to them, user data is shown to them solely to facilitate a delivery). The shown data is the address detail to facilitate a delivery. This is the information or label file used to facilitate the printing or writing of an address label for your package and any email notification of the buy order containing this the seller receives.

It is against Privacy Interface policy for sellers to copy or transfer this address to any system beyond Privacy Interface, including for example online 3rd party automated mail label printing services and if they have done such or if it is found to be their policy to do so (for example the customer receives an item with a printed label from a 3rd party label printing website due to laziness of the seller) they will be banned from using Privacy Interface permanently.

The input of a buyers address or order name into any external form* or retention of the address and order name of a customer by any seller will be considered a data violation by Privacy Interface and result in an account ban as determined by Privacy Interface.

*With the exception of reputable government or government contract operating postage provider sites, which will see the address anyway during delivery and only if it is necessary to print the label, this does not include 3rd party label printing services. These are all banned. Using any 3rd/4th party online label printing systems will result in a strike, upon report by a customer of a label with markings or branding from a 3rd party source.

Sellers must remove any personal details from re-used packages, including personal details of persons who are not Privacy Interface users. Sellers must also remove any old postal barcodes or identification numbers from re-used packages.

Long term internal record retention to prevent fraud or abuse is observed solely by Privacy Interface alone in the form of retaining the records from both sides of transactions and sellers are not ever permitted to hold copies or lists of user addresses beyond the period where they are required to facilitate delivery (36hrs). Sellers are obliged to make an effort to routinely ensure that they do not have in their possession any buyer addresses or order names.

Privacy Interface regulates any disputes, handles all issues of payment and payment reversal and thus only the Privacy Interface system is required to hold the data of the transaction in the long term. This data on the Privacy System is then removed in accordance with standards imposed by Privacy Interface’s legal jurisdiction (England).

Note: Any employee of a private company that notices that their company takes and stores the addresses or order names of Privacy Interface customers who bought products from them should report their company to Privacy Interface in return for Privacy Interface profile bonuses and potentially a job with Privacy Interface (where reporting your company for violating our standards results in your dismissal, p.s take them to court for unfair dismissal first) and to assist Apex Interface Ltd in taking legal action against such entities for violating the privacy of Privacy Interface users and data theft from Privacy Interface.

Sellers that violate the privacy of Privacy Interface customers will be banned and their data in return will be given to the user whose data they violated, for retaliatory legal measures in which Privacy Interface will pro-actively provide assistance and evidence to users against companies, inviduals, parties or agents that violated Privacy Interface or Privacyx Interface user’s privacy.

Internal Data Security:

Section 6:

Registration details are recorded and visible only to Privacy Interface: Including IP address and all the information you input. Privacy Interface system records the login time and date of users. Note: This data is recorded so that in the event of attempted fraud, link spammer bots or users that accumulate 3 small ethical conduct strikes against their account or 1 data or 1 major ethical conduct violation strike, these details can then be used to block that person or computer from accessing the site and all associated and future developed apps and platforms permanently. The web server hosting Privacy Interface.com does not store any financial details.

Product Picture Privacy and Ownership:

Section 7:

By the nature of the intention behind their upload, pictures of products are public and visible to all Privacy Interface users who view them.

Users transfer the rights over image files uploaded to Privacy Interface to Privacy Interface until Privacy Interface deletes a picture. These pictures can be deleted from the media library of a user but not from use by Privacy Interface for that product. Users grant Privacy Interface and Privacy Interface users* permission to use viable pictures uploaded by users as the default product picture of a product until a clearer or more illustrative picture is assigned by Privacy Interface or another user. *Users must always upload a minimum of 2 photos unique to and proving the existence of their product for a listing to be valid.

Users are not permitted to upload pictures with people, any personal details or discernable locations inserted into the picture. Users are not permitted to photograph themselves in their product pictures even if they have their own permission to do so.

The sole exception to this rule is printed photographs or DVDs under the following conditions: A printed photograph or DVD based video, or other media including a human or human(s) is being sold that item must have the written permission of every human in that photo in the product description no matter the resolution. (This is an intended and deliberate ban on selling printed pictures or videos of people or locations with (non paid actor) humans in documentaries or landscape photos that violate peoples privacy).

Sellers transfer copyright ownership of uploaded picture files to Privacy Interface for the duration of their use. All logos, copyright material or trademarks belong to their respective owners and must only be included in product photos where they are a part of the physical product, the seller assumes all legal liability for the legitimate use of such for selling or re-selling an item through pictures they upload.

The sole identifiers, text or logos permitted are those that are a physical part of the product, or printed by the manufacturer on the product. The only additional identifiers, text or logos permitted in pictures are PrivacyInterface.com logos and text as found on the Apex or Privacy Interface product size visualizers. No external URLs, business names, advertisements or logos can be included in the background or overlay of product photos. All product photos should be unedited except in filesize cropping and file type conversion (e.g: .JPEG/.PNG to fast loading .WEBP).

Note: If you upload images to the website, you should not upload images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website, including robots can download and extract any location data from images on the website they manage to access. Use a free image editor program such as Gimp to remove EXIF data from all pictures (in the export options when saving a picture). Do not copy picture files from other devices or the internet, these files may have been shared many times. It is safer to Screenshot these pictures instead of downloading them and make an entirely new file from the screenshot or screen snip to upload in a compact format with the EXIF and other data removed.

Note: Personal Social Profile Privacy Advice: Do not post extremely sensitive information on your profile that is not essential to facilitate social interfacing with other people in order to minimize risk. Do not share sensitive pictures or information with other users, although this is allowed, only when consensual and private, it is advised against strongly due to the unethical nature of many humans. Note: the Personal Profile Social Interface section of Privacy Interface does not yet exist due to funding limitations and the advanced standards inherent in creating a truly encrypted, private and secure social media platform. (See the Privacy Interface development funding roadmap for details.)

Note: Remember to setup your order pseudonym in order to protect your real name from sellers and every human (or evil robot) that sees that name from the point of postal dispatch to the postal delivery person at the door. Ensure that this name is realistic and will not cause confusion, state suspicion or embarrassment upon delivery. It is important for this name to appear realistic. Consider using a version of your real name or a similar sounding name or a designated name to avoid a family member turning down a package as being for an unfamiliar name. Additionally you may wish to alternate between several different order names for extra ID protection. Please remember that Privacy Interface alone must be able to see your real name on our internal system in order to prevent abuse and assist in order dispute, account recovery, account data deletion or legal/refund claims on your behalf.

Cookies: Technical Necessities.

Section 8:

If you visit the login page, use a shop search or type anything the system will set a temporary cookie 1st 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, in order to have a login system, the system will set up several cookies that save your login information, this is what constitutes the technical state of being ‘logged in’. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies can last for up to a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login facilitating cookies will be removed, this is how login mechanisms work. By using this website you agree to the use of these cookies.

Note: You should routinely clean your browser of cookies from other websites. The Privacy Interface will develop its own desktop program, app and browser in the future to overcome the necessity of using a browser to access the website and associated security issues of using web browsers. See the Privacy Interface development funding roadmap for details.

Embedded content: User Embedded content & URL links are banned.

Section 9:

Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited that website. Corporate advertising internally is banned. There is no embedded content on this website. If a user manages to embed content from another website that tracks users, that social user or seller/buyer will be banned instantly. The Privacy Interface’s Social Interfacing is for individuals not corporations or advertisement robots.

The sole external systems utilized by Privacy Interface to facilitate the function of the website:

Stripe: Payment gateway integration upon checkout payment. Financial details are processed on Stripe servers and are not processed on Privacy Interface servers or domain. (Potentially) Cloudflare: Currently uninstalled. Cloudflare may be initiated at times when required for DDOS/DOS protection. Site-wide. Initiated upon access when active. Checks to see if traffic comes from a human source. Cloudflare intervention is initiated externally to the Privacy Interface website. Currently uninstalled for privacy enhancement.

Privacy Interface is not responsible for Stripe, your bank, your email provider or (when active) Cloudflare actions or inactions in relation to user data. Note: Privacy Interface recommends the use of the encrypted, secure email provider Protonmail (not an advert) to overcome the issue of providers that block Privacy Interface default system messages or have non secure databases.

Privacy Interface uses several website plugins, to the best of Privacy Interface’s knowledge they do not transfer data out to externally viewable systems. Note: Privacy Interface is seeking to replace these with our own systems when sufficient funds to facilitate the development of effective Privacy Interface brand systems are available.

External Embedded content is banned from this website. Any user that embeds any custom code that links to external content into an item description or social post may be banned. Users are not allowed to place URL links in hyperlinked or text form anywhere. Users are also not allowed to suggest users to search for a shop or an item elsewhere in an item description, title or seller shop profile page. This will result in an account strike/ or ban at the sole discretion of Privacy Interface.

Any links placed solely by Privacy Interface are simple URL click hyperlinks or hyperlinked pictures with no external reach onto Privacy Interface beyond the outgoing click on that link.

Banned User Data rights:

Section 10:

Banned user data is not sold nor transferred out of systems operated by Apex Interface for any purpose. By committing actions that cause a user to be banned, banned users forfeit all rights over the internal control of their data. This data is then used by Apex Interface and solely Apex Interface associated platforms, projects and services to prevent banned users from ever registering on them. If you have received 3 strikes and have been banned from this website you agree to your details being permanently used to prevent you from re-registering. If you were banned due to violating the data privacy of another user or user(s) that user or user(s) will receive a notification that you violated their privacy and that user or user(s) will receive your address and contact details in retaliation in order to enable them to pursue legal action against you in conjunction with proof provided by Privacy Interface. This only occurs where the instance is legally provable and a clear, unequivocal data violation can be identified. This serves as direct ethical justice and a deterrent against data privacy violations between users of all sizes: companies and persons alike. These policies are enforced in order to enforce the highest, most ethical and private community and service standards on Privacy Interface and Apex Interface apps, employment and services.

Measures against the Exploitation of Privacy Interface and Criminal attacks against Privacy Interface:

Section 11:

In application solely against users who engage in any form of criminal exploitation of Privacy Interface and users who broadcast that they are engaged in, or admit to real and provable acts of murder, rape, terrorism (physical) or other high grade (indictable and capital) criminal acts solely (in real time/prior to criminal conviction) in these rare instances (0 having occured) these users when identified by reports from others users and evaluated as real and credible by Privacy Interface, would have relevant information directly reported to the most relevant Law enforcement agency by the administrators. Users should report all obvious high grade criminal activity and any criminal activity or misuse of Privacy Interface to Privacy Interface and let Privacy Interface handle the formal reporting process as solely Privacy Interface has full access to our data and can technically prove reports. Users should never directly report other users to any external persons or other users as users may not have the full picture (as with deep-fake ‘pranks’ typically on April the 1st, sarcasm or humour) and this reporting outside of Privacy Interface if found to have been false would lead to your account being terminated for personal data privacy violations.

In all law enforcement relevant instances, the data of banned users who used Privacy Interface will be retained and used to prevent them from re-registering on Privacy Interface. Privacy Interface may choose to pre-emptively ban users where users are deemed a danger to Privacy Interface users or the privacy of Privacy Interface users.

This policy of data retention of banned users relates to criminal activity and applies solely to those who broadcast immediate criminal activity on Privacy Interface. This does not include any ‘civic offences’ such as protests or criticism of governments. Privacy Interface will refuse law enforcement requests pertaining to these fake criminal categories if any are made from governments with human rights violations records.

If legitimate law enforcement agencies requested access to a non-obvious suspected-criminal (indictable/capital offence) user’s data they would require an individual-specific court warrant. Privacy Interface will not accept requests for broad surveillance of users. Privacy Interface will share data with elected-government law enforcement agencies only when an indictable offence has been committed and a Law enforcement agency has a warrant for information on a specific user. In that situation Privacy Interface will request of that agency proof that said criminal even used Privacy Interface. Privacy Interface would only then check to see if the financial details name had ever used Privacy Interface. Privacy Interface may itself report credible situations discovered in real time by Privacy Interface users.

Data breach (User Profile & Financial) notification policies:

Section 12:

Privacy Interface does not store card nor financial details of customers. If a system-wide hack occurs and is identified that resulted in any meaningful human data losses, this would not be kept secret, all users would be immediately notified by email in order to change account passwords. Privacy Interface holds all sales payments for 15 days prior to sending funds to the seller, preventing fraud or theft. Privacy Interface accounts are not accessible via the website. Privacy Interface is not responsible nor liable for profile privacy violations that occur as a result of illegal data theft by external parties. Privacy Interface will in such circumstances seek to press applicable charges and take legal action against suspected responsible entities.

User on User Data exploitation notification policies:

Section 13:

If it is determined by Privacy Interface that a seller or user has been found to have kept information about you without your permission, beyond legal limits or to unnecessary extents (as defined by Privacy Interface) after processing your order details, or interfacing with you as a ‘friend’ to then violate your privacy, in cases of personal manipulation/data gatheting, in return you are given the full details of that seller or user, including their home and business addresses, name, IP address and all of the proof we have found that they have violated your data rights in order to facilitate legal action in addition to that seller or user being permanently banned from all Apex Interface systems, platforms, apps and services. Privacy Interface is not liable for data copied/stolen by unethical or criminal agents. However Privacy Interface where legally helpful may decide to assist users (through providing recorded system evidence) to take legal action against identified unethical or criminal sellers or users in legal cases against the unethical or criminal sellers or users in addition to banning them from Privacy Interface. Privacy Interface itself may step in and finance its own court cases on behalf of Privacy Interface or Privacy Interface users against agents and especially companies, corporations or governments that steal, attempt to steal or assist in the stealing of any information from users of Privacy Interface or Apex Interface as a company (Corporate espionage).


Note: This privacy document also includes outlines for the in-development public interface and social interface platforms yet to be released. Policies exist ahead of the release of these currently non-accessible systems and social profiles.
