Any accounts engaging in the activities specified below are subject to permanent suspension. We look to prosecute all spam accounts that are created on our platform, the penalty for which is $USD150,000.00.

Please note that any violation of the Creativepool Rules is cause for permanent suspension of all accounts.
• Username Squatting: You may not engage in username squatting. Accounts that are inactive for more than 6 months may also be removed without further notice. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be username squatting are:

• Spam: You may not use the Creativepool service for the purpose of spamming anyone. What constitutes “spamming” will evolve as we respond to new tricks and tactics by spammers. Some of the factors that we take into account when determining what conduct is considered to be spamming are:
o If you have followed a large amount of users in a short amount of time;
o If you have followed and unfollowed people in a short time period, particularly by automated means (aggressive follower churn);
o If you repeatedly follow and unfollow people, whether to build followers or to garner more attention for your profile;
o If you have a small number of followers compared to the amount of people you are following;
o If your updates consist mainly of links, and not personal updates;
o If you post misleading links;
o If you post links of any kind in feedback or comment fields;
o The number of spam complaints that have been filed against you;
o If you post duplicate content over multiple accounts or multiple duplicate updates on one account;
o If you repeatedly post other users' Posts as your own;

Information Collection and Use
Top Tip: We collect and use your information below to provide our Services and to measure and improve them over time.
Information Collected Upon Registration: When you create or update a Creativepool account, you provide some personal information, such as your name, username, password, and email address. Some of this information, for example, your name and username, is listed publicly on our Services, including on your profile page and in search results. Some Services, such as search, public user profiles and online magazine, do not require registration.
CVs: If you upload your CV to the Service any registered employer with CV search privileges will have access to your CV and the information therein. You have control over how much of your personal contact information is available for viewing. A valid email address is the minimum contact information you must display. We use our best efforts to grant access to this database only to hiring employers. You may remove your CV from our searchable database at any time. However, recruiters who have paid for access to the database may have retained a copy of your CV in their own files or databases and may contact you independently. We are not responsible for the retention, use, or privacy of CV’s in these instances.
Reviews: You can submit reviews and comments against work and projects that other users upload to the Service. Reviews are public and become the property of Creativepool. As such we reserve the right to use this information as we see fit, including for marketing and promotion of the Service. Reviews containing web links, spam, offensive language, threats or profanity will be removed. Accounts used to post web links, spam, offensive language, threats or profanity will be permanently suspended.
Additional Information: You may provide us with profile information to make public, such as a short biography, your location, your website, or a picture. You may provide information to customise your account, such as a mobile phone number for the delivery of SMS messages. We may use your contact information to send you information about our Services or to market to you. You may use your account settings to unsubscribe from notifications from Creativepool. You may also unsubscribe by following the instructions contained within the notification or the instructions on our website. We may use your contact information to help others find your Creativepool account, including through third-party services and client applications. Your account settings control how others can find and contact you. You may choose to upload your address book so that we can help you find Creativepool users you know. We may later suggest people to follow on Creativepool based on your imported address book contacts. If you email us, we may keep your message, email address and contact information to respond to your request. If you connect your Creativepool account to your account on another service in order to cross-post between Creativepool and that service, the other service may send us your registration or profile information on that service and other information that you authorise. This information enables cross-posting, helps us improve the Services, and is deleted from Creativepool within a few weeks of your disconnecting from Creativepool your account on the other service.
Posts, Following, Lists and other Public Information:Our Services are primarily designed to help you share your creative work with the world. Most of the information you provide us is information you are asking us to make public. This includes not only the comments, feedback, press releases, news and articles you post, and the metadata provided with Posts, such as when you Posted, but also projects you create, the people you follow, the Posts you mark as favourites or add to your Pools, and many other bits of information that result from your use of the Service. Our default is almost always to make the information you provide public for as long as you do not delete it from Creativepool, but we generally give you settings to make the information more private if you want. Your public information is broadly and instantly disseminated. For instance, your public user profile information and public Posts may be searchable by search engines and are immediately delivered via email and our APIs to a wide range of users and services, with one example being the United States Library of Congress, which archives Posts for historical purposes. When you share information or content like photos, videos, and links via the Service, you should think carefully about what you are making public.
Links: Creativepool may keep track of how you interact with links across our Services, including our email notifications, third-party services, and client applications, by redirecting clicks or through other means. We do this to help improve our Services, to provide more relevant advertising, and to be able to share aggregate click statistics such as how many times a particular link was clicked on.
Cookies: Like many websites, we use "cookie" technology to collect additional website usage data and to improve our Services, but we do not require cookies for many parts of our Services such as searching and looking at public user profiles or lists. A cookie is a small data file that is transferred to your computer's hard disk. Creativepool may use both session cookies and persistent cookies to better understand how you interact with our Services, to monitor aggregate usage by our users and web traffic routing on our Services, and to customise and improve our Services. Most Internet browsers automatically accept cookies. You can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. However, some Services may not function properly if you disable cookies.
Log Data: Our servers automatically record information ("Log Data") created by your use of the Services. Log Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, operating system, the referring web page, pages visited, location, your mobile carrier, device and application IDs, search terms, and cookie information. We receive Log Data when you interact with our Services, for example, when you visit our websites, sign into our Services, interact with our email notifications, use your Creativepool account to authenticate to a third-party website or application, or visit a third-party website that includes a Creativepool button or widget. Creativepool uses Log Data to provide our Services and to measure, customise, and improve them. If not already done earlier, for example, as provided below for Widget Data, we will either delete Log Data or remove any common account identifiers, such as your username, full IP address, or email address, after 18 months.
Third-Party Service Providers: Creativepool uses a variety of third-party services to help provide our Services, such as hosting our various blogs and wikis, and to help us understand the use of our Services, such as Google Analytics. These third-party service providers may collect information sent by your browser as part of a web page request, such as cookies or your IP address.
