We will ask you to consent in advance to our use of your personal information for marketing purposes and we will always provide you with an opportunity to opt out of the use of your personal information for marketing purposes.
Like most website operators, Creative Kernow collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. We collect this non-personally-identifying information to better understand how visitors use our websites. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g. by publishing a report on trends in the usage of our websites.
Gathering of personally-identifying information
Some visitors to our websites choose to interact with them in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask visitors who register with our Cultivator programme to provide a password and email address. In each case, Creative Kernow collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfil the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with the site.
Privacy Notice changes
Although most changes are likely to be minor, Creative Kernow may change this Privacy Notice from time to time and we encourage visitors to check this page regularly for any changes. Your continued use of our websites after any change in this Privacy Notice will constitute your acceptance of such change.
