Privacy Policy

Last updated 17.09.2019


PlansRule IVS (“we” or “us” or “our”) respects the privacy of our users (“user” or “you”). This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, disclose, and safeguard your information when you use our SIGBRO mobile application (“SIGBRO”, the “SIGBRO app” or the “Application”). 

Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. If you do not agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy, please do not access the application. 

We reserve the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. We will alert you about any changes by updating the “Last updated” date of this Privacy Policy. 

You are encouraged to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed of updates. You will be deemed to have been made aware of, will be subject to, and will be deemed to have accepted the changes in any revised Privacy Policy by your continued use of the Application after the date such revised Privacy Policy is posted.  

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the third-party online/mobile store from which you install the Application. We are not responsible for any data collected by any such third parties.


TL;DR: We respect your privacy. We do not collect personal information about you. 

The SIGBRO app needs only the passphrase to an Ardor account to serve its purpose: serving you.

What data do we collect?

We collect the following data:

– Public Ardor address (account ID)

Accounts are pseudonymous. We can not identify you from your account ID.

– Unique Phone ID

We generate an ID for you(r device). It is random. It can not be used to identify you. 

– User agent information and IP address

We log non-personal data like phone model, browser, version, for a short time. 

– Email address (optional)

If you opt-in to receiving emails from us, we collect an email address from you.

How do we collect your data?

We collect data and process data when you:

– Install the app, open the app, and save an account in the app

– Sign up for our email list during the setup of the SIGBRO app (optional)

How we use your data?

We collect account ID’s so that we can:

– Contact you

– Secure your new account in the blockchain (see: SIGBRO Faucet)

We send general messages to our users over the blockchain instead of collecting their names and addresses, phone numbers, email addresses, IMEI, or other personal contact information. 

We generate Unique Phone ID’s to:

– Avoid misuse of the SIGBRO Faucet (avoid double spending).

We log user agent information and IP addresses for:

– User statistics and to find and debug problems for specific phone models.

Email addresses are used to send out updates, offers, and (maybe) important warnings. 

How do we store your data?

We store your data at our servers in the Netherlands, Europe. We are using SSL/HTTPS for all communications. Backups are stored offline on encrypted harddisks. 

How long we retain your data

We keep your account ID and email address (if you have opted-in for receiving emails) until you ask us to delete it.

We will then delete your data by removing it from our database and backups.

The data we do NOT collect

We do NOT keep a copy of your account passphrase. YOU must back it up.

If you lose your passphrase, you lose access to your account and everything in it.

We will NEVER ask for your passphrase, so don’t ever give it away. NEVER disclose your passphrase to anyone. It will give them access to your account.

We do not collect or store your transaction history.

If you make transactions on the blockchain, they are recorded in the blockchain.

We do not track which websites and online services you auth with or log in to with the SIGBRO application. If you auth or log in to any 3rd party service, we will not see it. 


The SIGBRO app lets you log in to websites and online services that support SIGBRO Auth. If you use SIGBRO to log-in and auth, you allow the Application to transfer your account ID to the website, online wallet, or any other service, that you log in to. 


You can import any account that has been created on the Ardor blockchain.

New accounts that are generated from the SIGBRO application are Ardor accounts and have no transaction history. Ardor accounts are pseudonymous by design. If you ever choose to link your Ardor account to your real identity, with or without using the SIGBRO app to do so, your entire blockchain transaction history will be linked to your real identity.

If you link your real identity or any private detail to your Ardor account, it is an action taken by you, and we can not be held responsible for it or anything that comes from it. Transactions that are successfully recorded in a public blockchain like Ardor’s can not be undone, and unencrypted data on the blockchain can be considered public information. 

It is important that you understand this.

If you do not have a full understanding of this, can not live up to the responsibility of having control of your own data and transactions, or if you do not accept the conditions, or you do not have sufficient knowledge of what a blockchain is, and what the Ardor platform is, then you should NOT use the SIGBRO app. It is your sole responsibility to act legally, and not use the SIGBRO app in a way that is not compliant with your country’s laws.

The SIGBRO Faucet

By using the SIGBRO faucet, you allow us to send an IGNIS transaction to your account from Ardor account ARDOR-H2W5-VZAB-9XFZ-38885 in order to announce your account’s public key to the network. Proof of this transaction will be stored in the Ardor blockchain.

The SIGBRO token

We may send a SIGBRO token to accounts that use The Application.

By analyzing which accounts hold the SIGBRO token, it is possible to see which account ID’s are using, or have used, the SIGBRO application. Also, we will occasionally send non-personalized information to you, and every account holding the SIGBRO token, over the blockchain network.

The SIGBRO token is free, not tradable on exchanges, and it can only be sent to you from account ARDOR-AJBH-X4TM-4ABQ-3VLEN. Its asset ID is: xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx. Any other token with the same name that tries to look like the SIGBRO token but has another asset ID and issuing account is a fake. SIGBRO token messages will show in the SIGBRO app – fakers’ will not.

You can not delete the SIGBRO token without our help. Please contact us if you want to.

Messages to your account

We may send occasional messages to SIGBRO token holders. They may be updates, special offers, descriptions of new services that are available to users of the SIGBRO application or the Ardor platform, and they may contain links to third-party websites and applications of interest, including advertisements and external services, that are not affiliated with us. 

Once you have used these links to leave the SIGBRO Application, any information you provide to these third parties is not covered by this Privacy Policy, and we cannot guarantee the safety and privacy of your information. Before visiting and providing any information to any third-party websites, you should inform yourself of the privacy policies and practices of the third party responsible for that website, and you should take the steps necessary to, in your discretion, protect the privacy of your information. 

If you no longer want to receive updates and communications from us over the blockchain, please contact us, so that we together can remove your account as a recipient address. 

Making Blockchain Transactions 

The SIGBRO app provides a way for you to sign and execute transactions on the Ardor blockchain, including all of its child chains, that you, yourself, set up, check, and execute – or that others have prepared, and you can review in the app and execute. Nobody but YOU can see which transactions you check, prepare or sign, and only a person or machine that knows your account passphrase can make blockchain transactions with your account.

If you, or anyone else that has gained access to your account, upload your personal information to the blockchain, you understand that it can not be deleted, and we are not responsible. Such data is not stored by us, and we can not control your actions, and we can not help you undo ANY transaction that has been made from your Ardor account ID. 

Privacy policies of other websites

Our privacy policy applies only to the Application, so if you click on a link to another website from the Application (or if you visit and use an external website or service that offers SIGBRO compatible services but are not featured in the SIGBRO app), you should read their privacy policy and agree to it, before you use it. 

Personal information that you provide when for example writing blog posts or making comments on websites, while you are logged in with your Ardor account ID might be shown and/or stored with your Ardor account ID by the website operators. So make sure you read and agree to their privacy policy, before you log in to a website with the SIGBRO application. Our privacy policy applies only to the Application, not to 3rd party websites.

Who we share your data with – we store your email address for newsletters, guides, announcements, and usability testing invite purposes, if you have opted-in to receive emails from us. You can opt-out of these at any time.

We disclose your non personally-identifying information (such as your account ID) to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available in The Application or at our (or affiliated) websites, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others! 

Other than to employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, we disclose your non personally-identifying information in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of SIGBRO, third parties or the public at large.

Other Third Parties

We may share your Ardor account ID with advertisers and investors for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. We may also share your information with such third parties for marketing purposes, as permitted by law. 

Sale or Bankruptcy 

If we reorganize or sell all or a portion of our assets, undergo a merger, or are acquired by another entity, we may transfer your Ardor account ID to the successor entity. If we go out of business or enter bankruptcy, your account ID could be an asset transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur and that the transferee may decline honor commitments we made in this Privacy Policy. Not that it would matter, because YOU control any and all of your private data, and we – or any 3rd party – do not.
