In addition to Personal Information which we collect as described above, we use technology to collect Anonymous Information about your computer and your use of our Site or Services, such as which pages of our Site you view, length of visit, your IP address, which web browser you use, geographical location and referral source. This technology does not identify you personally, but rather enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our Site. The Site also contains hyperlinks to other pages on the Site. We may use technology to track how often these links are used and which pages on the Site our visitors choose to view. This technology does not identify you personally – it simply enables us to compile statistics about the use of such hyperlinks. All such information collected and stored may be used in the administration of the Site or Services, to improve the Site or Services, and otherwise for our internal business purposes.

OUR USE OF COOKIES, LOG FILES AND OTHER TECHNOLOGY
CoCreativ uses Cookies, web log files and other technology to track and store information regarding Site usage.

“Cookies” are alphanumeric identifiers in the form of text files that are inserted and stored by your web browser on your computer’s hard drive. The main purpose of a Cookie is to allow a webserver to identify a user, and serve up customized web pages or log in information to the user’s web browser when revisiting a web page. Cookies help us promptly display the information you need and other information which we consider to be of interest to you. We or our service providers may set and may access Cookies on your computer in order to track and store preferential information about you. We or our service providers gather Anonymous Information about you through Cookie technology on the aggregate level. Both “Session” Cookies and “Persistent” Cookies may be used.

When you visit any of our Sites or use any Services, we use Session Cookies to allow the Site or Services to uniquely identify your browser while you are logged in and to enable us to process your online transactions and activity. Session Cookies also help us confirm your identity and are required in order to use any Services. Session Cookies are temporary and expire when, or shortly after, you close your web browser.

We may also use Persistent Cookies to identify you as an Authorized User or Lightbox Guest User, and to make it easier for you to log into our Services. A Persistent Cookie is set once you’ve logged into any of our Services. The next time you visit the Site, the Persistent Cookie will allow us to recognize you as an existing Authorized User or Lightbox Guest User. In order to access or change any of your Personal Information (for example, a credit card number) or to send a message to another user, however, you must log in securely again with your password regardless of whether your computer contains your persistent Cookie. Furthermore, if you log out of a Service, you will need to reenter your password the next time you visit in order to log in.

Most web browsers are initially set up to accept Cookies, however you can usually reset your web browser to refuse Cookies or to indicate when a Cookie is being sent. If your web browser does not allow Cookies or if you opt to refuse all Cookies, you may be able to browse parts of the Site but will not be able to access or use Services.

If you have Adobe Flash installed on your computer and you use our audio or video players, Google Analytics will try to store some additional data on your computer. This data is known as “Local Shared Object” or “Flash Cookie”. Adobe’s website offers tools to control Flash Cookies on your computer.

LOG FILES
We gather certain information automatically and store it in log files or in our database. This information includes internet protocol addresses as well as browser, internet service provider, referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, uploads, downloads and click stream data. Occasionally we may connect Personal Information to data gathered in our log files or stored in our database as may be necessary to improve services to individual users. Otherwise, we may use such information with no connection to individual users, to analyze trends, administer the Site, or track usage of various Services or features within the Site.

We also use Google Analytics, a web analytic service provided by Google Inc. to help us analyze how users use CoCreativ’s Sites. Google Analytics may use Cookies.

ACCESSING, CORRECTING, DELETING AND EXPORTING YOUR DATA

ACCESSING OR DELETING PERSONAL DATA
Upon written request, we will disclose to you or delete the Personal Information we hold about you. You may also request that we correct, amend or delete such Personal Information so that any inaccurate or incomplete personal data can be corrected or completed without undue delay. Such requests should be addressed to us at the e-mail or street address provided below in the section of this Privacy Policy entitled “Contacting CoCreativ”.

We will endeavor to respond to your requests to view, correct or delete your Personal Information within approximately one month or a reasonable period of time following verification of your identity. Although we will endeavor to accommodate requests for access to or deletion of Personal Information, we may deny your requests where the burden or expense of providing such access or effecting such deletion would, in our good faith judgment, be disproportionate to the risks to your privacy, or where the rights of others would be violated. We may also deny your requests, and may retain and use your Personal Information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, enforce our rights or agreements, and for other lawful business purposes.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF DATA
If you are visiting this Site or utilizing Services from a country other than the United States, the various communications you send and receive will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries. If you are located in the European Union you should be aware that information you provide or which is otherwise collected on this Site or through any Services rendered may be transferred to countries (including the United States) which do not have data protection laws deemed as adequate as those in the EU. By visiting this Site and communicating electronically with the Site or any Services you consent to the processing and transfer of your Personal Information and other data as set out in our Privacy Policy and as detailed in separate Data Processing Terms, as provided.

TERMS OF SERVICE
When you access and use any Services you are subject to the TOS.

CHILDREN UNDER 13
When it comes to the collection of personal information from children under 13, the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) puts parents in control. The Federal Trade Commission, the nation’s consumer protection agency, enforces the COPPA Rule, which spells out what operators of websites and online services must do to protect children’s privacy and safety online.

At times, Customers and their Authorized Users may upload to the Site some contents depicting children (e.g. fashion or movie photos). This Site, however, is not directed at children 13 years of age or younger, and CoCreativ does not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13.

YOUR CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS
As mentioned above, the Services are intended only for adults over the age of 18. Any California residents under the age of 18 who have registered to use the website, and who have posted content or information on the web site, can request that such information be removed from the Web Site by contacting us at privacy@cocreativ.co. When making such a request the minor must state that he or she personally posted such content or information and detail where the content or information is posted. We will make reasonable good faith efforts to remove the post from prospective public view or anonymize it so the minor cannot be individually identified. This removal process cannot ensure complete or comprehensive removal. For instance, third parties may have republished the post and archived copies of it may be stored by search engines or others we do not control.

GOVERNING LAW
This Privacy Statement forms a part of our TOS and as such shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the state of New York and the federal laws of the United States, without giving effect to any principles of conflicts of laws which might cause the application of the laws of any other jurisdiction. In addition, to the extent we collect and process personal data of individuals in the EU, this Privacy Policy conforms to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), 2016/679.
