You may also provide your telephone number, unless your inquiry relates to a franchise opportunity in which case we require your telephone number and mailing address. We will use this information to provide you with promotional and other communications and will share it with our independently-owned franchisees, who may also use the information to provide you with these communications. You may opt out of receiving promotional emails from us at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of the applicable email.
How We Collect Information
IP Addresses and Related Data. The servers used to operate the Site may collect data pertaining to you and the equipment, software, and communication methods you use to access the Internet and the Site, including Internet protocol (“IP”) addresses assigned to your computer, your Internet service provider (ISP), your approximate geographic location, your browser type, the pages you access on the Site, the web sites you access before and after visiting the Site, the length of time you spend on the Site, date and time stamps, and clickstream data. Creative World School may use this information to administer the Site and its servers, to generate statistical information, to monitor and analyze Site traffic and usage patterns, to monitor and prevent fraud, to investigate complaints and violations of our policies, and to improve the Site’s content and the products, services, materials, and other content that we describe or make available through the Site. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information, other Collected Information, and information obtained from third parties for security reasons. The suppliers that we use to provide the Site may collect information about your visits to the Site and other web sites.
The Site may use the advertising services and networks offered by various social media platforms to deliver advertising content. Our use of these services requires social media platforms to implement cookies or pixel tags to deliver ads to you while you are logged into their platform. If you do not wish a social media platform to collect information relating to you via the Site, we suggest that you: (i) hide social media platform plug-ins using an ad blocker; (ii) always log off completely from the social media platform before visiting other web sites and delete all related cookies; and, (iii) where the option is available, disable the advertising services and networks operated by a social media platform. For example, you may opt out of Twitter’s interest-based advertising by notifying Twitter through one of the methods they describe online: https://support.twitter.com/articles/20170405.
