In case of a corporate transaction, in connection with the sale, merger, acquisition, or other corporate reorganization or restructuring of our corporation, your Personal Information may be disclosed, shared or transferred to the new controlling entity or its authorised third party for carrying on our business.

  • To our advisors, agencies or other parties concerned in order to protect the rights and property of Creato.

  • In any other case, to any third parties with your prior written consent (and in which case we will make it possible for you to withdraw your consent as easily as it was to provide consent).

We do not sell, rent, or lease our customer lists to third parties. In order to help provide our services, we occasionally provide information to other companies that work on our behalf. We ensure these parties must adhere to strict data protection and confidentiality provisions that are consistent with this Policy. Measures are taken to ensure that the data shared is non-attributable to the greatest extent possible.

We may share aggregate or anonymous information with relevant third parties, including our advertisers, some of whom maybe located outside your home country. Such information does not contain any Personal Information and will not identify you personally. However, in some occasions, these third parties may possess information about you or obtain your information from other sources. When they combine such information with our aggregate information, they may be able to identify you personally.

There may be links present on Creato which could result in you leaving Creato and/or being taken to other third party websites. You should note that any Personal Information that you provide to these third party websites are not subject to this Policy, and Creato is not liable for any losses, damages, costs or expenses which you may suffer or incur in connection with you providing or making available Personal Information or other data to such third party websites.

Additional Information

If you contact our customer service team via our website or mobile application, we will receive your email address and may track your IP address, as well as the information you send to us to help resolve your query. We will keep records of our communications with you, including any complaints that we receive from you about other users (and from other users about you) for 7 years after the deletion of your account.

We will retain your personal data for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Policy and other legitimate business purposes unless we are otherwise required by law to dispose of your personal data. If you close your account, we will retain certain data for analytical purposes and recordkeeping purposes, as well as to prevent fraud, enforce our Terms of Use, take actions we deem necessary to protect the integrity of our System or our users, or take other actions otherwise permitted by law. In addition, if certain information has already been provided to third parties as described in this Policy, retention of that information will be subject to those third parties’ policies.

To prevent abuse of the mobile application and/or website, Creato may block accounts as part of its moderation procedures. In order to do this, we check accounts and messages for content that indicates breaches of our Terms of Use. If an account or message meets certain criteria that demonstrate that the Terms of Use are likely to have been breached, the relevant account will automatically be blocked. All users of accounts that have been blocked will be notified that their account has been blocked and affected users can contact Creato to contest the decision.

By using our Services, you acknowledge that Creato is operating through servers located in a number of countries around the world, including the United States. If you live in a country with data protection laws, the storage of your personal data may not provide you with the same protections as you enjoy in your country of residence.

We keep Personal Data for as long as reasonably necessary for the purposes described in this Policy, while we have a business need to do so, or as required by law (e.g. for tax, legal, accounting, or other purposes), whichever is longer.

This is when we use your data to send you details about our updates or related products, services and offers provided by us or our co-branding, rewards or loyalty programme partners or any services provided by our business partners.

We may use data such as your demographics, the products and services that you’re interested in, transaction behaviour, portfolio information, location data, social media data, analytics and information from third parties when we market to you.

We don’t give your personal data to others for them to market their products and services to you. If we ever wanted to do this, we’d get your separate consent.

Display of your data and information

Creato is designed to let our users meet and interact with each other. You also understand that your profile on Creato and other information you make available via the Web / App may be viewed and shared by other Creato’s users with individuals who may or may not be Users. For example, you might share information like the photos and messages you send or upload and any metadata provided with those messages, along with any comments or information you provide in connection with your photos.

When using Creato, you should assume that anything you post or submit on the Web / App may be publicly-viewable and accessible, both by users of our Services and non-users of our Services. We want our users to be careful about posting information that will eventually be made public.

When your Account is deactivated, we take reasonable efforts to make sure it is no longer viewable on the Web / App. For up to 30 days it is still possible to restore your Account if it was accidentally or wrongfully deactivated. After 30 days, we begin the process of deleting your Account from our systems. We are not responsible for any information, pictures, comments, or other content that is deleted from our systems resulting from the deactivation of your Account.

To prevent abuse and/or misuse of Creato by a User following termination or deletion of a profile/Account we shall retain such information as we deem in our sole discretion may be necessary to ensure that the User does not open a new Account and profile in breach of our Terms of Use and to ensure compliance with all laws and regulations.

Warning: Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your Account, copies of that information may still be viewable and/or accessed to the extent such information has been previously shared with others, or copied or stored by other users or to the extent such information has been shared with search engines. We cannot control this, nor do we accept any liability for this. If you have given third-party applications or websites access to your personal information they may retain such information to the extent permitted under their terms of service or privacy policies.

Third Party Accounts If you have registered with Creato using a third-party social media platform, such as Instagram, YouTube or Facebook (“Social Media Account”), your Creato’s profile will be available to all users of Creato whether via our Web / App or our partners’ websites. Remember that when you register with a third party, you are also giving them personal information, so we recommend that you read their privacy policies as Creato does not control how they use their information.

If you have created a Creato’s profile through a third party website and you do not want to link your Creato’s profile to your profile on the third party website, We cannot amend these settings. Please visit the application settings on your third party website profile and follow the instructions to remove the access permissions.

We only use the APIs, OAuth Tokens, Widgets, or other means provided by the applicable Social Media Account to integrate your Social Media Account with our Web / App. As such, we only receive the limited information that each Social Media Account permits to be transferred.

Security of your Personal data

Creato secures your personal data, from loss, unauthorized access, misuse or disclosure. Creato secures such personal data you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, misuse or disclosure. Nevertheless, no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee that information that users of the System may happen to transmit or otherwise supply will be totally secure.

WE EXPRESSLY DISCLAIM ANY REPRESENTATION OR WARRANTY, WHETHER EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WITH RESPECT TO ANY BREACHES OF SECURITY, DAMAGE TO YOUR DEVICE, OR ANY LOSS OR UNAUTHORISED USE OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION OR OTHER DATA.

Promotions, Advertisements & Researches

We may send you emails or other communications and third-party advertisements with promotional offers if you are opt-in to receiving such communications or advertisements. If you would no longer like to receive special promotion information, advertisements, or other messages from us or third party advertisers, please email at hello@creatogether.app, follow the “Unsubscribe” instructions on such messages, or update your settings and preferences on the System. Please allow us a reasonable period of time in order to satisfy your request, as some advertising campaigns or promotions may already be in process at the time you request to no longer be sent such advertisements or promotions. Please note that after opting out, you may still receive non-marketing and non-promotional messages, including but not limited to product updates and service notices as permitted under applicable local laws and regulations.

From time to time we may run surveys for research purposes and we may contact you to find out if you would like to take part. We may also contact you to find out if you would like to take part in marketing campaigns. Such surveys and marketing campaigns are optional and more information will be provided at the point of contact. We may also contact you for feedback purposes.
