TARTLE Terminal and Mobile lets you download, encrypt, buy, and sell information concerning your digital identity or other individuals anonymously on the TARTLE Global Data Exchange.

However, we reserve the right to do so in the future, and in such case any applicable fees will be displayed prior to you incurring the fee. Network fees (including, without limitation “miner’s fees”) required to use a Virtual Currency network may apply to a transaction. We may attempt to calculate such a fee for you.
