e. Lisk Mainnet
Lisk Mainnet is a decentralized network that consists of many different servers (or nodes) and which follows the Lisk protocol. It is where the true Lisk economy exists. Within this network Lisk users can transfer LSK tokens from one account to another, register accounts as delegates, vote for other delegates or register dApps. It was launched in May 2016.
Node operators are required to set up Lisk Core on a server, and then connect it to the desired network. Lisk Core is the program that actually implements the Lisk protocol. In order to run a node which will participate in the network Lisk Core must be installed. Furthermore, this also applies to every additional machine that is required to run a node.
If you decide to create an account or run a node at Lisk Mainnet, the following personal data will be collected from you and processed by the network as well as by every other node participating in it:
- Address of your Lisk account;
- Your public key;
- LSK balance of your Lisk account;
Processing of the abovementioned personal data is indispensable for Lisk Mainnet to operate and for every node to participate in this decentralized blockchain network; the applicable legal basis is the performance of the contract under GDPR Art.6.1(b) (Terms and Conditions).
In addition to the above, your following personal data may also be processed (see paragraphs below for more information in that regards):
- Delegate’s username;
- Votes casted on delegates;
- Transactional data (message);
Delegate’s username. Lisk’s consensus algorithm works as a Delegated Proof-of-Stake. Accounts registered as delegates store extra information related to block forging in this property, such as e.g. the delegate’s username.
Votes casted on delegates. In Lisk’s Delegated Proof-of-Stake, users can vote for accounts that are registered as delegate accounts. Votes issued by a user are stored in their account as a list of tuples, each with the voted-delegate address and the amount of voted tokens (in beddows).
Transactional data (message). Balance transfer transactions offer the possibility to send a message in the optional property data. Should the data included in the message constitute personal data, it will be saved on the blockchain permanently.
CAUTION! In general, blockchains are designed to be immutable. Any information stored on the blockchain at Lisk Mainnet will remain there forever. Thus, maximum caution should be exercised when storing any personal data on the blockchain at Lisk Mainnet both in a form of a plain text as well as pseudonymised.
All types of personal data mentioned above are stored on the blockchain at Lisk Mainnet which has to be downloaded and regularly updated by every node participating in the network. Thus, personal data stored on the blockchain is processed by every node participating in Lisk Mainnet.
It is therefore impossible to designate one data controller which determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data within Lisk Mainnet. We have no means of controlling Lisk Mainnet which operates as a decentralized network. Furthermore, there are no means by which we could interfere with the already validated transactions or information stored on the blockchain at Lisk Mainnet. For this reason, when deciding to participate in Lisk Mainnet, you need to take into account that some of your rights concerning your personal data may be significantly limited or even impossible to execute.
We want you to know that your right to privacy is important to us. At Lisk Foundation we try to do whatever possible within the existing legal framework to protect your personal data.
There are ongoing discussions on how data protection regulations should apply to a processing of personal data which takes place on blockchains. Nevertheless, so far there has not been any official guidance released which addresses the issue of data controllership or the exercising of data subjects’ rights in blockchain architectures.
f. Lisk Testnet
Lisk Testnet is an independent replica of the Lisk Mainnet, whose main function is to test the new versions of Lisk Core before they are deployed on the Lisk Mainnet. Subsequently, this is where new/updated versions and fixes of the Lisk Core are tested.
When you decide to connect to Lisk Testnet, the same types of your personal data will be processed in the same manner as if you connected to Lisk Mainnet. Therefore, the same limitations apply and the same precautionary measures applicable to storing personal data on blockchain should be taken.
To start using the Testnet, you need to first get your free LSK Testnet from the Testnet Faucet.
g. Lisk Betanet
The Betanet is the place where the most recent releases of Lisk Core are tested, before moving to Testnet and Mainnet.
When you decide to connect to Lisk Betanet, the same types of your personal data will be processed in the same manner as if you connected to Lisk Mainnet. In general, the same limitations shall apply and the same precautionary measures should be taken as well. Here, however, to some extent we are able to interfere with the content of the blockchain and amend the data stored on it.
To start using the Betanet, you need to get your free Betanet LSK from the Betanet Faucet

As long as you connect to Lisk Mainnet, Lisk Testnet and Lisk Betanet, it will be us, to process the above mentioned data. In case you decide to connect to any other network, Lisk will not have access to any data you share when you use Lisk Desktop.
Please take note that when you use Lisk Desktop for the first time, you must login first to enable the option to be able to use other servers/networks which are not Lisk Mainnet or Lisk Testnet. Therefore before you change the server/network, you will be connected to our Lisk Core public API servers by default.
You can also help us to improve Lisk Desktop by allowing us to gather your usage data for analytical purposes. Such data will be collected fully anonymously and will be used solely for analytical purposes. We will collect your data only upon your explicit consent, which can be withdrawn anytime in the Settings menu of Lisk Desktop. When collecting and processing such data we use the open-source analytics platform Matomo (www.matomo.org). The collected data is not shared with any third-party service provider but is analyzed by ourselves.

Whenever we will process personal data obtained from third parties, this Policy shall apply.
When and how we share your data
Depending on the processing activity, we may share your personal data with our third-party service providers working on our behalf. Every third party with which we will share your personal data comes from a jurisdiction which guarantees an adequate level of protection to the one provided for in the GDPR. What is more, before we share any personal data of our users with third parties, we conclude appropriate data processing agreements with the recipients that guarantee security of the data and the rights of the data subjects.
Other third-party service providers
We may also share your personal data with other third party service providers. When doing so, we make sure that your personal data is processed and transferred, if necessary, in accordance with the applicable data protection regulations (e.g. the GDPR and the Swiss Data Protection Act).

Where do we store your data
The information that we collect from you will be transferred to, and stored at/processed within the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland, the United Kingdom, the United States and in other countries where our third party service providers are located. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your personal data is treated securely, with a level of protection adequate to GDPR and in accordance with this policy. We have provided further details below regarding the steps taken to ensure adequacy of the processing of your personal data.
White Listed Countries:
Switzerland was found to have an adequate level of protection for personal data under European Commission Decision 2000/518/EC of 26 July 2000.
After Brexit, a transition period started allowing the United Kingdom time to negotiate a new relationship with the EU in regards to transfers of personal data and adequate levels of protection. During the transition period the existing rules on GDPR will continue to apply in the United Kingdom. This period runs until 31st December 2020.
Consequences of invalidation of Privacy Shield:
CAUTION! Taking into account the Court of Justice of the European Union’s decision in “Schrems II” C-311/18 in which the CJEU declared the EU-US Privacy Shield invalid, we undertake to ascertain the adequate level of protection of your personal data by entering into Model Clauses (described below) with our third-party service providers located in the US.
If we are transferring data to a third party located outside of the EEA who is not in a White Listed Country, we will enter into the European Commission’s model contracts for the transfer of personal data to third countries (i.e., the standard contractual clauses pursuant to Decision 2010/87/EU - SCCs) with the relevant data importer. Prior to entering into SCCs we assess, on a case-by-case basis, as outlined in the CJEU decision in Schrems II case, whether an adequate level of data protection, comparably to the level of data protection within the EU is given in the country where the data will be transferred to. If the appropriate level of protection is not given, additional protection provisions and measures will be contractually agreed and/or implemented by us to ensure the protection of personal data.
How long do we store your data
We aim to always store your personal data for the minimal period of time thus for the time we actually need it. Exact retention periods are always specified in those sections of this Policy, which refer to particular processing activities.
We may, however, keep your personal data for a longer period of time. We will do that only in order to meet legal requirements imposed on us by the applicable laws and regulations (e.g.. AML & CFT for Lisk Programs).
We regularly review our information and erase or anonymise personal data when we no longer need it.
The security of your personal data
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet or email is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted through the Website, Lisk Products or over email; any transmission is at your own risk.
Nevertheless, once we have received your information, we will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to safeguard your personal data against loss, theft and unauthorised use, access or modification.

At any time you have the right to lodge a complaint against the competent supervisory authority.
Lisk is established in Switzerland which is not a part of the EEA. Thus, there is no lead supervisory authority over processing activities described in this Policy. Therefore, you are free to contact any data protection authority which is competent for the place of your residence or for the place where you think we have infringed your rights within the EEA. Contact details for data protection authorities in the EEA are available here.
Nevertheless, for any processing activity where joint-controllership between Lisk and Lightcurve occurs, you can lodge a complaint against the Berlin Commissioner for Data Protection (Berliner Beauftragte für Datenschutz und Informationsfreiheit).
In the event that you wish to make a complaint about how we process your personal data, please contact us in the first instance at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will endeavour to deal with your request as soon as possible. This is without prejudice to your right to launch a claim with the data protection supervisory authority in the EEA country in which you live or work or where you think we have infringed data protection laws.
