Privacy Policy

Our Core Privacy Principles:  

Scope

This Privacy Policy describes how we handle your personal information for our services on the CreateMyTattoo website. It applies generally to the CreateMyTattoo.com website and content and other related websites where this policy appears in the footer of the page.  The policy that applies on any of our domains or sub-domains is always the policy that appears in the footer of each website.

By accepting the Privacy Policy and the User Agreement in registration, you expressly consent to our collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy. This Privacy Policy is effective upon acceptance for new users and is otherwise effective on January 1, 2009.

Collection

You can browse our sites without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information about yourself.  Once you give us your personal information, you are not anonymous to us.  If you choose to provide us with personal information, you consent to the transfer and storage of that information on our servers located in the United States.

We may collect and store the following personal information:

Marketing

We don't sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent.  If you don't wish to receive marketing communications from us or participate in our ad-customization programs, simply indicate your preference in your CreateMyTattoo  account.

Use

Our primary purpose in collecting personal information is to provide you with a safe, smooth, efficient, and customized experience.  You agree that we may use your personal information to:

Our Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose personal information to respond to legal requirements, enforce our policies, respond to claims that a contest or other content violates the rights of others, or protect anyone's rights, property, or safety. Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

We may also share your personal information with:

Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and our ability to keep the community free from bad actors, we will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order or substantially similar legal procedure, except when we believe in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss or to report suspected illegal activity.

Information You Share on CreateMyTattoo

Your User ID is displayed throughout CreateMyTattoo (and so available to the public), and is connected to all of your CreateMyTattoo activity. Other people can see your portfolio, design entries, bio, and associated comments.  Notices sent to other community members about suspicious activity and policy violations on our sites refer to User IDs and specific designs. So if you associate your name with your User ID, the people to whom you have revealed your name will be able to personally identify your CreateMyTattoo activities.

Using Information from CreateMyTattoo

CreateMyTattoo enables you to share personal information to complete transactions. We encourage you to disclose your privacy practices and respect the privacy of other users. We cannot guarantee the privacy or security of your information and therefore we encourage you to evaluate the privacy and security policies of your contest partner before entering into a transaction and choosing to share your information. To help protect your privacy, we allow only limited access to other users' contact information to facilitate your transactions. When users are involved in a transaction, they may have access to each other's User ID and email address.  In all cases, you must give other users a chance to remove themselves from your database and a chance to review what information you have collected about them.

You agree to use user information only for CreateMyTattoo transaction-related purposes that are not unsolicited commercial messages;

Cookies

We use "cookies" (small files placed on your hard drive) on certain pages to help analyze our web page flow; customize our services, content and advertising; measure promotional effectiveness, and promote trust and safety.

A few important things you should know about cookies are that:

No Spam, Spyware or Spoofing

We and our users do not tolerate spam. Make sure to set your CreateMyTattoo notification preferences so we communicate to you as you prefer.  You are not licensed to add other CreateMyTattoo users, even a user who has purchased an item from you, to your mailing list (email or physical mail) without their express consent. To report CreateMyTattoo-related spam or spoof emails to CreateMyTattoo, please go the the Contact Us.  You may not use our communication tools to send spam or otherwise send content that would violate our User Agreement.  We automatically scan and may manually filter messages to check for spam, viruses, phishing attacks and other malicious activity or illegal or prohibited content, but we do not permanently store messages sent through these tools. If you send an email to an email address that is not registered in our community (via Refer-a-Friend or other tools), we do not permanently store that email or use that email address for any marketing purpose. We do not rent or sell these email addresses.

Account Protection

Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and special characters, and do not disclose your CreateMyTattoo password to anyone!  If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are responsible for all actions taken in the name of your account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason, you should immediately notify CreateMyTattoo and change your password.

Accessing, Reviewing and Changing Your Personal Information

You can see, review and change most of your personal information by signing on to CreateMyTattoo. Generally, we will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. You must promptly update your personal information if it changes or is inaccurate. Once you make a public posting, you may not be able to change or remove it. Upon your request, we will close your account and remove your personal information from view as soon as reasonably possible, based on your account activity and in accordance with applicable law. We do retain personal information from closed accounts to comply with law, prevent fraud, collect any fees owed, resolve disputes, troubleshoot problems, assist with any investigations, enforce our CreateMyTattoo User Agreement, and take other actions otherwise permitted by law.

Security

Your information is stored on our servers located in the United States. We treat data as an asset that must be protected and use lots of tools (encryption, passwords, physical security, etc.) to protect your personal information against unauthorized access and disclosure. However, as you probably know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the site. Therefore, although we work very hard to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

Transactions on the marketplace are conducted in a Secure Socket Layer (SSL) session, which encrypts all transaction data for transmittal in a format that prevents theft of the information. While on a secure page, the lock at the bottom of a web browser becomes locked and this lets you know that you are in a secured session. Our servers are located in a secure, supervised environment. Our databases are accessible only by persons who have entered into and are bound by a confidentiality and nondisclosure agreement with us.

Third Parties

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are Contest Holders, Shop Owners or Artists on our sites or other sites throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. CreateMyTattoo does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. We encourage you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

General

We may amend this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the amended terms on this site. All amended terms automatically take effect 30 days after they are initially posted on the site. In addition, we will notify you through the CreateMyTattoo Message Center. If your questions are not answered online, you may write to us at:
