We will not send you any unsolicited marketing or spam and will take all reasonable steps to ensure that we fully protect your rights and comply with our obligations under applicable data protection laws. If you are an existing customer, we will only contact you by electronic means (e-mail or SMS) with information about services similar to those which were the subject of a previous enquiry by you.

If you do not want us to use your data in this way, or to pass your details on to third parties for marketing purposes, please notify us in writing or by email at email@example.com
We may send you transactional emails that are important to your use of Createxplore, for example to let you know that you have unread messages, to tell you about Projects you may be interested in (if you're a Creator), or to suggest Creators who might be able to help you (if you're an Explorer with an open Project). We will send these even though you may have chosen not to receive marketing emails from us because they are important to making Createxplore work for you. These emails will not incorporate marketing or promotional content and therefore will not include an unsubscribe link.
