Information we collect

We collect information to provide better services to all of our users – from figuring out basic stuff like which language you speak, to more complex things like which ads you’ll find most useful or the people who matter most to you online.

We collect information in two ways:

§ Information you give us. We may collect certain information from you include your name, email address, telephone number, and any other information you choose to provide. For example, when you sign up for our Service, make a Post, give feedback about the Service or otherwise communicate with us, we will collect information from you.

§ Information we get from your use of our services. We may collect information about the services that you use and how you use them, like when you visit a website that uses our advertising services or you view and interact with our ads and content. This information includes:

§ Device information

We may collect device-specific information (such as your hardware model, operating system version, unique device identifiers, and mobile network information including phone number). Creatabu may associate your device identifiers or phone number with your Creatabu Account.

§ Log information

When you use our services or view content provided by Creatabu, we may automatically collect and store certain information in server logs. This may include:

§ Details of how you used our service, such as your search queries, Content & pages viewed, access time, “Likes/Ignites”.

§ Internet protocol address.

§ Device event information such as crashes, system activity, hardware settings, browser type, browser language, the date and time of your request and referral URL.

§ Cookies that may uniquely identify your browser or your Creatabu Account.

§ Location information

When you use a location-enabled Creatabu service, we may collect and process information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device. We may also use various technologies to determine location, such as sensor data from your device that may, for example, provide information on nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers.

§ Local storage

We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches.

§ Cookies and anonymous identifiers

We use various technologies to collect and store information when you visit a Creatabu service, and this may include sending one or more cookies or anonymous identifiers to your device. We also use cookies and anonymous identifiers when you interact with services we offer to our partners, such as advertising services or Creatabu features that may appear on other sites.

We may also collect information using web beacons (also known as “tracking pixels”). Web beacons are electronic images that may be used in our Service or emails and help deliver cookies, count visits, understand usage and campaign effectiveness and determine whether an email has been opened and acted upon. For more information about cookies, and how to disable them, please see “Transparency & Choice” below.

How we use information we collect

We use the information we collect from all of our services to provide, maintain, protect and improve them, to develop new ones, and to protect Creatabu and our users. We also use this information to offer you tailored content – like showing you more relevant Art that we think you might like.

We use information collected from cookies and other technologies, like pixel tags, to improve your user experience and the overall quality of our services. For example, by saving your language preferences, we’ll be able to have our services appear in the language you prefer. When showing you tailored ads, we will not associate a cookie or anonymous identifier with sensitive categories, such as those based on race, religion, sexual orientation or health.

We may use your photo and your name to show as the commenter photo icon in the comment conversation thread.

When you contact Creatabu, we may keep a record of your communication to help solve any issues you might be facing. We may use your email address to inform you about our services, such as letting you know about upcoming changes or improvements.

We may use the information we collect from you to provide and deliver the Service you request, process transactions and send you related information, including confirmations.

We may use the information we collect from you to respond to your comments, questions and requests and provide customer service or to tell you about new products, features, services, offers, or events built or put on by Creatabu and it’s partners if we deem it to be of interest to you.

We will ask for your consent before using information for a purpose other than those that are set out in this Privacy Policy.

Analytics Services Provided by Others

We may allow third parties to provide analytics services to us. These entities may use cookies, web beacons and other technologies to collect information about your use of the Service, including your IP address, Posts, Posts viewed, time spent on Posts, and conversion information. This information may be used by us and others to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand your online activity.

§ · With your consent

We require opt-in consent for the sharing of any sensitive personal information such as financial information, health or other confidential information you may disclose to us for any reason.

We provide personal information to our affiliates or other trusted businesses or persons to process it for us, based on our instructions and in compliance with our Privacy Policy and any other appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

§ · For legal reasons

§ o Meet any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request.

§ o Enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations.

§ o Find, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or suspect technical issues.

§ o Protect against harm to the rights, property or safety of our users, third parties or the Site as required or permitted by law.

If Creatabu is involved in a merger, acquisition or asset sale, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give affected users notice before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Information you share

Many of our services let you share information with others. Remember that if you choose to include information about you in your Art/Content, such as your name, birthday, email address, usernames (from around the internet), your photo, etc…, such information will be shared with other users of the Service who can view your Art/Content. We suggest that you do not include ANY identifiable information about you in your Art. Also, please note that if you or other users choose to share a Post through a third party, such as Facebook, Twitter or an email client, any further collection and sharing of that Post by such third party or its users will be governed by that third party’s privacy policy, and we cannot control what any third party does with any Art or other information that is shared with third parties. Sharing to external sites like Facebook or Twitter could also compromise the anonymity of your Art.

Children Under Thirteen

Creatabu does not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under the age of thirteen, you must ask your parent or guardian for permission to use this website. We will take steps to delete any Personal Information from children under 13 if it we learn we have collected it.

The Security of Your Information and the Content on the Site

§ We encrypt many of our services using SSL .

§ We review and update our security practices as necessary our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.

§ We restrict access to personal information to Creatabu employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

What Sites Our Privacy Policy Applies To

Our Privacy Policy applies to all of the services offered by Creatabu.com and its affiliates, including services offered on other sites (such as our advertising services), but excludes services that have separate privacy policies that do not incorporate this Privacy Policy.

Our Privacy Policy does not apply to services offered by other companies or individuals, including products or sites that may be displayed to you in links from our Site, in sites that may include Creatabu services, or other sites linked from our services. Our Privacy Policy does not cover the information practices of other companies and organizations who advertise our services, and who may use cookies, pixel tags and other technologies to serve and offer relevant ads.

Enforcement

We regularly review our compliance with our Privacy Policy. We also take internal steps to protect your privacy where possible. When we receive formal written complaints, we will contact the person who made the complaint to follow up. We work with the appropriate regulatory authorities, including local data protection authorities, to resolve any complaints regarding the transfer of personal data that we cannot resolve with our users directly.

Changes

Our Privacy Policy may change from time to time. We do not reduce your rights under this Privacy Policy without your express consent. We will post any privacy policy changes on this page and, if the changes are significant, we will provide a more prominent notice (including, for certain services, email notification of privacy policy changes). We will also keep prior versions of this Privacy Policy in an archive for your review.

Transparency and choice

People have different privacy concerns. Our goal is to be clear about what information we collect, so that you can make meaningful choices about how it is used. For example, you can:

If you wish to delete your account, email us at [email protected] Note that we may retain certain information as required by law or for legitimate business purposes as may be necessary to fulfill the purposes identified in the privacy policy. We may also retain cached or archived copies of information about you for a certain period of time.

· Accessing and updating your personal information

Whenever you use our services, we aim to provide you with access to your personal information. If that information is wrong, we strive to give you ways to update it quickly or to delete it – unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request.

We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort (for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice), risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical (for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes).

Where we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We aim to maintain our services in a manner that protects information from accidental or malicious destruction. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems.

You may also set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our services, or to indicate when we are setting a cookie. To delete or disable flash cookies please visit www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/security for more information. However, it’s important to remember that many of our services may not function properly if your cookies are disabled.

With your consent, we may send push notifications or alerts to your email. You can deactivate these messages at any time by changing the notification settings on your account setting.

PUBLIC TERMINALS/PUBLIC ACCESS

Since Creatabu.com allows for anonymous sharing of Art/Content, if you use a public computer, such as one located in a library, coffee shop, office, etc…, if you do not log out properly (sign out, close browser, delete cache, etc…), another user of that computer may gain access to your content and account information. Creatabu.com is not liable for public computer security breaches. Please use public computers at your own risk.

Contact Us

If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy policy or any privacy issues, please email our Privacy Manager at [email protected] If you email us at the email specified above, we will respond to concerns and complaints within a reasonable time after receipt (usually no more than 30 days).
