Privacy Policy for State of DeFi Survey 2024

The State of DeFi Survey 2022 ( “Survey”) and associated participant research is managed by Oazo Apps Limited (“Oazo”) and its Survey partners (collectively “we” or “us”). This notice sets out how your data will be used as a Survey participant and your rights under the UK General Data Protection Regulation (UK GDPR).

  1. Data

Your participation is voluntary. With your informed consent, we will collect and process the following information:

  • Your responses to the survey questions;

  • Any personal information you decide to share in the Survey, including any personally identifiable information, such as your wallet address, that you may decide to share, for example to enter the Survey prize draw. 

We do not sell your information. 

For the Survey, we use Typeform, which may collect and process personal information and may store cookies. For more information on Typeform’s privacy policy, data processing agreement and cookie policy, please click here.

  1. Purpose

We will process this information for a number of purposes. Your responses to the Survey will be processed with the aim of drafting and publishing a report (State of DeFi report, expected to be published in early 2023) and related publications (for example, a blog post summarising the report or a Twitter thread). If you decide to share personally identifiable information, such as your wallet address, for a chance to win one of the Survey prizes, we will use this information for the purposes of helping us deliver a prize in case you are eligible to one.

2.1 Legal Basis

The main legal basis for processing your data is informed consent.

3. Recipients

Research based on Survey responses will be managed by us, with the support of our survey supplier (Typeform) and our Survey partners, and therefore all individual-level data will be seen by these parties for the purpose of conducting the Survey and analysing the responses.

The Survey results will be aggregated and a report will be made public based on the responses provided by Survey participants.

You will not be personally identified in any report or related publication (such as blog post or Twitter thread) produced.

4. Retention

Your data will be held by Oazo until 22 December 2024, unless you notify us in writing before this date that you no longer wish for us to hold this information.

Aggregate results from the Survey research do not count as personal data and will therefore be kept indefinitely, or until they are no longer considered useful.

5. Your rights

Under certain circumstances, you have the following rights under data protection laws relating to any personal information you may have provided to us:

  • You have the right to request information about how your personal data are processed, and to request a copy of that personal data.

  • You have the right to request that any inaccuracies in your personal data are rectified without delay.

  • You have the right to request that any incomplete personal data are completed, including by means of a supplementary statement.

  • You have the right to request that your personal data are erased if there is no longer a justification for them to be processed.

  • You have the right in certain circumstances (for example, where accuracy is contested) to request that the processing of your personal data is restricted.

  • You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

  • You have the right to request a copy of any personal data you have provided, and for this to be provided in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). However, we may charge a reasonable fee if your request is clearly unfounded, repetitive or excessive. Alternatively, we could refuse to comply with your request in these circumstances.

Where you have provided anonymous data, we will not be able to link your responses to you. Therefore, you will not be able to:

  • request access to your data,

  • withdraw your consent,

  • object to, or restrict, the processing of data,

  • rectify the data held.

6. International transfers

As your personal data will be stored on our IT infrastructure it may be transferred and stored outside the UK. On occasion the survey supplier (Typeform) may store your data on their servers. We have no control over their servers. Please review Typeform’s data protection agreement, privacy policy and cookie policy here. We will also share Survey responses with our Survey partners for the purpose of analysing and aggregating results with a view to publishing a report and related publications. Please do not include in your Survey responses any information which you do not want to be shared with Oazo or our Survey partners.

7. Complaints

If you consider your personal data has been misused or mishandled, you may make a complaint to the Information Commissioner, who is an independent regulator ( Any complaint to the Information Commissioner is without prejudice to your right to seek redress through the courts. Before making a complaint to the ICO, please consider contacting us through the contact details provided below to resolve the issue.
