Here are some examples of the types of personal information Creede Capital may collect and how we may use it:
When you register for an account or contact us we may collect a variety of information, including your name, mailing address, phone number, email address, contact preferences.
In certain jurisdictions, we may ask for a government issued ID in limited circumstances including when setting up a wireless account and activating your device, for the purpose of extending commercial credit, managing accounts, or as required by law.
The personal information we collect allows us to keep you posted on Creede Capital latest product announcements, profile updates, and upcoming events. If you don’t want to be on our mailing list, you can opt out anytime.
We also use personal information to help us create, develop, operate, deliver, and improve our products, services, content and advertising, and for loss prevention and anti-fraud purposes.
We may use your personal information, including date of birth, to verify identity, assist with identification of users, and to determine appropriate services. For example, we may use date of birth to determine the age of Creede Capital account holders.
From time to time, we may use your personal information to send important notices, such as communications about changes to our terms, conditions, and policies. Because this information is important to your interaction with Creede Capital, you may not opt out of receiving these communications.
We may also use personal information for internal purposes such as auditing, data analysis, and research to improve Creede Capital products, services, and customer communications.
Cookies & Other Technologies
As is true of most internet services, we gather some information automatically and store it in secure log files. This information includes Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet service provider (ISP), referring and exit websites and applications, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.
We use this information to understand and analyze trends, to administer the site, to learn about user behavior on the site, to improve our product and services, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Creede Capital may use this information in our marketing and advertising services.
In some of our email messages, we use a “click through URL” linked to content on the Creede Capital website. When users click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page on our website. We track this click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to be tracked in this way, you should not click text or graphic links in the email messages.
Pixel tags enable us to send email messages in a format customers can read, and they tell us whether mail has been opened. We may use this information to reduce or eliminate messages sent to customers.
At times Creede Capital may make certain personal information available to strategic partners that work with Creede Capital to provide products and services, or that help Creede Capital market to customers. For example, if you activate your account by SMS, you authorize Creede Capital and your carrier to exchange the information you provide during the activation process to carry out service. If you are approved for service, your account will be governed by Creede Capital and your carrier’s respective privacy policies. Personal information will only be shared by Creede Capital to provide or improve our products, services and advertising, it will not be shared with third parties for their marketing purposes.
Creede Capital shares personal information with companies who provide services such as information processing, extending credit, fulfilling customer orders, delivering products to you, managing and enhancing customer data, providing customer service, assessing your interest in our products and services, and conducting customer research or satisfaction surveys. These companies are obligated to protect your information and may be located wherever Creede Capital operates.
It may be necessary (by law, legal process, litigation, and/or requests from public and governmental authorities within or outside your country of residence) for Creede Capital to disclose your personal information. We may also disclose information about you if we determine that for purposes of national security, law enforcement, or other issues of public importance, disclosure is necessary or appropriate.
We may also disclose information about you if we determine that disclosure is reasonably necessary to enforce our terms and conditions or protect our operations or users. Additionally, in the event of a reorganization, merger, or sale we may transfer any and all personal information we collect to the relevant third party.
