• Giving Consumers the Ability to Capture, Control and Profit from Their Online Data...

     

    CYDigital gives back to Consumers control over their online data so that they can profit from it.
     

    CYDigital is conducting an early-stage private securities offering to raise capital to bring a fully-functional CYDigital Platform and CYD Token (CYDT) to market, enabling Consumers to protect and control their data, receive payment for their data, and share in revenue from advertisers.

  • Consumer Abuse by Those Two Internet Behemoths

    • Consumer data held by Internet behemoths not protected
    • Consumers generate online data, but receive nothing in return…
    • …while those big companies generate billions in revenue and market value
    • “Not what I want”: Consumers continue to receive ads they don't want
    • No wonder ad block usage grows

    How can Consumers take control and gain value from their data?

     

     

  • Solving the Issue of Consumer Control Over Their Data

    1

     

    CYDigital enables Consumers to capture, save and leverage their online data so that they can regain control from all 3rd party platforms, e.g., FB and G.

    The core to the CYDigital solution is the DApp.

     

    2

     

    What's the incentive for the Consumer to sign-up? They start to earn tokens. When Consumers become part of the CYDigital ecosystem, they earn CYD tokens (“CYDT”) for:

     

    • Signing up

    • Allow their data to be collected

    • Granting CYDigital permission to access the data

    • And rewarded for referring Friends ‘n Family

     

    3

     

    This is powerful, and CYDigital is committed to ensure that the Consumer that owns and controls the data. CYDigital's Mission is a must to which we AND THE ADVERTISER will adhere.

     

  • The Advertisers' Problem With Those Two Internet Behemoths

    Search & Social Advertising

    =

    The Flip Phone of Advertising

    • Those 2 companies own 80% of the digital ad market: they call the shots
    • But ad targeting not what it should be...
    • ...And the ads are mistimed compared to the Consumer's timeline
    • Not going to get a 360⁰ view of the Consumer
    • Starting to crumble: FB lost 44% of the 18-29 age group last year

    CYDigital is going to change this.

     

     

  • CYDigital Disrupts the Status Quo by

    Directly Connecting Advertisers and Consumers

    1

     

    CYDigital builds more meaningful relationships between Consumers and Advertisers with its CYDigital Advertiser Service.

     

    At just the right time and with permission, CYDigital connects relevant ads directly with willing Consumers using a blockchain-based and smart contract-enabled approach.

     

    2

     

    With the CYDigital Advertiser Service, we can now permit Advertisers to deliver a variety of offers to their targeted consumers...

     

     

    The Standard Offer

    The "Moment of Truth" Offer

    The Super Offer

    3

    With a stream of targeted, desired offers, the Consumer's CYDT earnings and spending is now closed-loop...

    CYDT now becomes a closed loop system with the 2 final pieces:

     

    •More earnings from engaging with Advertiser offers (and it’s here where the greatest amount of earning takes place)

     

    •Apply the earned CYDT to high value offers from Advertisers (think “GroupOn on the blockchain”)

  • CYDigital Architecture

  • CYDigital: Explained and Demonstrated

    There's an audio track accompanying this video.

    No audio: just a darn beautiful demonstration.

  • CYDigital's Capital Formation Strategy

     

    CYDigital is conducting an early-stage private securities offering to raise capital to bring a fully-functional CYDigital Platform and CYDT to market. To that end, CYDigital is offering Warrants to accredited investors.

     

    The offering is very flexible:

    •Warrants exchangeable for equity, which can then be converted to tokens.

    •Warrants exchangeable for tokens.

    •Or a Reg D offering in exchange for equity.

     

    Once the CYDigital Platform is fully functional and CYDT have available consumptive uses for Consumers and Advertisers within the CYDigital Platform, CYDigital plans to offer CYDT for sale to Consumers and Advertisers seeking to participate in the closed-loop ecosystem offered by the CYDigital Platform. Upon the launch of the CYDigital Platform, CYDT will not be exchange-listed and CYDT will only function within the closed-loop CYDigital Platform.

8.2 Your principal rights under data protection law are:

(b) the right to rectification;

(c) the right to erasure;

(d) the right to restrict processing;

(e) the right to object to processing;

(f) the right to data portability;

8.3 You have the right to confirmation as to whether or not we process your personal data and, where we do, access to the personal data, together with certain additional information. That additional information includes details of the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data concerned and the recipients of the personal data. Providing the rights and freedoms of others are not affected, we will supply to you a copy of your personal data. The first copy will be provided free of charge, but additional copies may be subject to a reasonable fee. You can access your personal data by emailing to info@cyd.digital.

8.4 You have the right to have any inaccurate personal data about you rectified and, taking into account the purposes of the processing, to have any incomplete personal data about you completed.

8.5 In some circumstances you have the right to the erasure of your personal data without undue delay. Those circumstances include: the personal data are no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed; you withdraw consent to consent-based processing; you object to the processing under certain rules of applicable data protection law; the processing is for direct marketing purposes; and the personal data have been unlawfully processed. However, there are exclusions of the right to erasure. The general exclusions include where processing is necessary: for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information; for compliance with a legal obligation; or for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

8.6 In some circumstances you have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data. Those circumstances are: you contest the accuracy of the personal data; processing is unlawful but you oppose erasure; we no longer need the personal data for the purposes of our processing, but you require personal data for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; and you have objected to processing, pending the verification of that objection. Where processing has been restricted on this basis, we may continue to store your personal data. However, we will only otherwise process it: with your consent; for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims; for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person; or for reasons of important public interest.

8.7 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data on grounds relating to your particular situation, but only to the extent that the legal basis for the processing is that the processing is necessary for: the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of any official authority vested in us; or the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. If you make such an objection, we will cease to process the personal information unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing is for the establishment, exercise or defense of legal claims.

8.8 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes (including profiling for direct marketing purposes). If you make such an objection, we will cease to process your personal data for this purpose.

8.9 You have the right to object to our processing of your personal data for scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes on grounds relating to your particular situation, unless the processing is necessary for the performance of a task carried out for reasons of public interest.

8.10 To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal data is:

(a) consent; or

(b) that the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract,

and such processing is carried out by automated means, you have the right to receive your personal data from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. However, this right does not apply where it would adversely affect the rights and freedoms of others.

8.11 If you consider that our processing of your personal information infringes data protection laws, you have a legal right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority responsible for data protection. You may do so in the EU member state of your habitual residence, your place of work or the place of the alleged infringement.

8.12 To the extent that the legal basis for our processing of your personal information is consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time. Withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of processing before the withdrawal.

8.13 You may exercise any of your rights in relation to your personal data by written notice to info@cyd.digital.
