“Do Not Track” Settings
Some browsers offer “do not track” settings that enable users to restrict the personal information that websites collect. Since CreativeFuture does not collect personal information other than personal information that you voluntarily and expressly provide, and does not share your personal information with third party external websites other than as described above, your use of “do not track” settings will not affect the functionality of this website, and this website will not override your “do not track” preferences.
Non-Personal Information Collection and Use
Non-personal information includes technical information or demographic information, such as your age, gender, location or interests. Some examples of the non-personal information that is collected via the website and how it is used include:
Internet Protocol (IP) address and referrer URL: We automatically collect a number of types of information, including information from your browser such as browser type, version and time zone. We collect your IP address which is a number that lets computers attached to the Internet know where to send you data – such as the web pages you view. We also collect a “referrer”, the information passed along by a web browser that references the Web URL you linked from to visit our website. Our uses of these types of information include delivering our web pages to you upon request, tailoring our website to the interests of our users, and measuring traffic within our website.
Cookies: A “cookie” is a small text file that may be used to collect information about your activity on the website. For example, when someone visits a page within the website, a cookie is placed on the user’s machine (if the user accepts cookies) or is read if the user has visited the website previously. You may set most browsers to notify you if you receive a cookie, or you may choose to block cookies with your browser, but if you do, you may not be able to take advantage of the personalized features enjoyed by other users to our website. Some of the cookies we use may be flash cookies or Adobe cookies which may contain Demographic Information (defined below) and, depending on your browser, these cookies may not normally be deleted when your cookies are deleted. Please note that the “do not track” settings on your browser generally do not block cookies. Check your browser to determine where these types of cookies are stored and how they may be blocked and/or deleted.
Demographic Information: “Demographic Information” may be your gender, age, zip code and interests or other similar information, which you voluntarily provide to us on the website or which we collect from third parties. We use this information to provide you with personalized services and to analyze trends to ensure the information provided by the website meets your needs and fulfills CreativeFuture’s mission. Please note that we also consider aggregated information, which is not personally identifiable, to be non-personal information.
This website may contain links to other websites, or tools that facilitate the sharing of the content on this website on your social media networks. Your use of such links or tools is voluntary, and CreativeFuture is not responsible for the privacy policies or practices of any third party.
If you have any questions, concerns, or comments about our policies you may contact us by e-mail: info@CreativeFuture.org
