Google Single Sign On
When registering a user account, you also have the option of using a single sign-on account (“SSO”). Our website allows you to use the SSO services offered by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.
If you decide to register using your SSO, you will be redirected to Google in the first step. Google will ask you to enter your login details or register with the SSO service. This prompt may be skipped if you are already logged in to the SSO. We will not be informed of the login details of your SSO, as they will not be transmitted to us.
In the second step, you will be asked to link your SSO profile with our website. We will use the data provided by Google during the registration process to create a user account on our website for you. During this step, you will also be informed about the data that we will be able to request from Google. Generally, this data includes your name, profile and title picture, your gender, and your username with the respective SSO provider. Furthermore, we will need the e-mail address stored in your SSO profile to register your user account on our website. If you consent to us using your above data for the purposes described above, you will be redirected to our website to complete the registration of your user account.
In the event that you wish to use our website with your SSO, Google will become aware that you wish to register a user account on our website. Google will usually place a cookie in your browser when you click on the button with the relevant SSO provider’s logo. Google may use this cookie to collect further information about you and your browsing behavior. The information generated through the cookie is transferred to the servers of Google. These servers may be located in a third country, such as the United States. Your information will be saved there and possibly merged with other profile data that Google has stored about you. This may result in Google creating user profiles that include information about you that exceeds what you have provided.
Google has signed up for the EU-US Privacy Shield for cases in which personal data is transferred to Google in the United States. According to the regulations of the GDPR, such certification offers a sufficient guarantee for compliance with the European data protection level for processing outside the EEA. More information can be found at https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
You can terminate the link between our website and your SSO profile by logging into your SSO profile and adjusting your preferences as necessary. By doing so, you can deny us the right to access and use the information from your SSO profile.
The legal basis for processing the single sign-on function offered on our website is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) a. GDPR.
Coinpanda publishes its product update newsletter to provide up-to-date information about our products and services, as well as a newsletter on crypto tax news to which anyone could opt-in. We send the product newsletter after a user creates an account on the website or registers with an email via the mobile app.
We use the provider Sendinblue.com to send our product and crypto tax newsletters.
The data required to provide you with the newsletter stored during the website registration process will be transmitted to Sendinblue’s servers in the European Union, which will be stored in compliance with GDPR. The data entered during registration will not be transferred to other third parties. Furthermore, Sendinblue offers various ways to analyze how the newsletter is opened and used once it is sent, e.g. how many users an email will be sent to, whether emails failed to deliver and whether users unsubscribed from the list after receiving an email. However, these analyses are performed in bulk and are used for statistical analyses only, and no individual analyses are provided.

Furthermore, you have the right to complain to the competent supervisory body (Art. 77 GDPR).
