Use of Cookies and Pixels

We may use cookies, pixel tags, and other technologies to automatically collect non-personal information.

 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 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.

Pixel tags are very small images or small pieces of data embedded in images, also known as “web beacons” or “clear GIFs,” that can recognize cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, a description of the page where the pixel tag is placed, and similar information from your computer or device

“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.

How Do We Protect Your Information and Secure Information Transmissions?

We employ commercially reasonable methods to ensure the security of the information you provide to us and the information we collect automatically. This includes using standard security protocols and working only with reputable third-party vendors.
