INFORMATION: WHAT WE COLLECT, HOW WE COLLECT IT, AND HOW IT IS USED
In common with most other websites and online services, we collect certain data about your visit to the CREETIQ platform. Any data we gather through your use of CREETIQ falls into three categories: (1) personal information that you supply to us, such as information you provide when you register (including your e-mail address), create an account, create a user name, register your device, complete a survey/poll, enter a contest, or purchase products or services; (2) information that is collected as you use CREETIQ that becomes identified with your personal information; and (3) information that does not directly identify you and is collected as you use CREETIQ, including your IP address, and information gathered with the use of a “cookie” (cookies are discussed further below), and information related to searches or recommendations on CREETIQ. Such information collected includes, without limitation, which pages and content are browsed, interactions with advertising and content, and other data related to preferences and usage. We use this information to better provide products and services, including, without limitation, to better target advertising and content, (on our and our Partner’s websites) and to generate statistics and reports.
You may use certain features on the CREETIQ platform without registering or creating an account. We may nonetheless build a history of your interactions with the CREETIQ platform even though we don’t know who you are.
As is common across websites, to use certain features of CREETIQ we ask you to register, create an account, provide your full name and email address and create a password. Once you have created an account, you will have the option to fill out a form (all or portions of which may be included in your profile). When you create your profile, we collect personal information about you, such as name, address, location, e-mail address, etc. which will be stored in order to provide services to you and to conduct activities including, without limitation, using it to process your registration, maintain a profile about you, process your request to receive newsletters and email announcements, or to voluntarily participate in surveys, polls or contests and/or to communicate with you about services and products we think may be of interest to you.
CREETIQ may allow you to set up profiles that may be viewed by other users of CREETIQ. To enrich your profile you may choose to include some personal information in your public profile so that other users can identify you. You should only include information in your public profile that you do not mind making publicly available without restriction.
In any case of processing your purchase orders we require your name, billing address, phone number, email address, shipping address, credit/debit card information and card security codes. We use this information to process your order and, if any questions arise, to contact you about your order. We may also use it to contact you about other products and services we feel may be of interest to you. In general CREETIQ will try to email you first but may phone or send an electronic message to you if you have provided these details and you consent to our so doing.
Personal information is also used to provide personalised services to you, such as show tracking and recommendations.
TRACKING AND COOKIES
When you visit the CREETIQ platform or the ZBM website, its affiliates, and/or subsidiaries, we and our advertising partners may store and access information from your device, including “cookies”, clear GIFs (which are also sometimes called web bugs or web beacons) and browser details. We may collect information such as your browser type, the type of operating system you use, the domain name of your Internet service provider, IP address, pages visited on the site, services used and how you have used them. We and our advertising partners do this for a variety of purposes. In the case of our advertising partners, this may include the personalisation of advertisements based on your visits to sites in that partner’s network.
We may provide data about our users, traffic patterns, products, services and site information to third-parties (such as vendors, advertisers and our business partners) (‘Partners’), but we will use reasonable efforts to provide it in a form that does not directly identify you.
Email addresses are used for identification, inviting new friends to CREETIQ, searching for and finding friends, general communication, order processing and to send notifications to you. To facilitate searching for and finding friends on the CREETIQ platform, we allows users to search for other members using text searches, first and last name, email address, and by using other attributes. Users can invite friends to join CREETIQ by sending invitation emails via our automated invitation system. Where permitted by applicable law, CREETIQ stores these email addresses so that the respondents may be added to the friend list of the member sending the invitations and to establish relationships between users.
WHICH ORGANIZATIONS ARE COLLECTING THE INFORMATION?
When you provide information to CREETIQ, that information is collected and maintained either by CREETIQ or by an authorized agent or contractor of CREETIQ such as web hosting companies, customer care service providers, and transaction processing service providers, unless specifically stated otherwise at the point of collection.
We may use your personal information and non-personal information to serve ads to you via CREETIQ or parent company, ZBM, affiliates and our sister subsidiaries as well as to provide you with promotions, products and services. We may also use third-party advertising companies and other business partners to serve ads on CREETIQ or Partner Sites and provide you with promotions, products and services. These third-party advertising companies and our business partners may be located throughout the world.
With your consent (as indicated when you set up your account) we may make certain information about you (including personal information, where you consent) available to third-party advertising companies and other business partners under agreements between us and those third-party advertising companies and business partners. The third-party advertising companies and business partners will use that information to target advertising to you or provide and market promotions, products and services to you.
We use commercially reasonable efforts to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information. However, due to the design of the Internet, ever-changing technology and other factors outside of our control, we cannot guarantee that communications between you and our servers will be free from unauthorized access by third parties. We will have no liability for disclosure of personal information due to errors in transmission or unauthorized or unlawful acts of third parties.
You are responsible for the security of your user name, ID and password for any of either CREETIQ, its parent company, its affiliates, sister subsidiaries or any associated websites. Please take care when using and storing them.
COMMITMENT TO CHILDREN’S PRIVACY

For that reason, none of our contents – not limited to our rating and review system – are directed at anyone under 13 and they are not structured specifically to attract anyone under 13. We also do not collect or maintain personal information from those users who we actually know are under 13. Should we learn or be notified that we have collected information from users under the age of 13, we will immediately delete such personal information.

All newsletters and email announcements from us will contain an unsubscribe link that also allows you to opt out at any time from these messages.
