Analytics

Iamcreative uses a number of analytics services to monitor and analyze site traffic. We use this information solely for the purpose of monitoring and improvement of our website and services. The analytics(-related) services we use, included their relevant Privacy Policies are:

Social Login

We use the social login add-on feature of the WooCommerce e-commerce plugin. This allows visitors of iamcreative.amsterdam to create an account for and/or login to the iamcreative.amsterdam website and shop through their Google, Facebook, Instagram or Twitter account. This is done purely for the purposes of expediting the login and account creation process. A visitor is not required to use this option in order to create an account or login. If you choose to use the social login feature, the relevant platform’s privacy policies apply (see below), and we will receive limited information, such as your e-mail address from the relevant third party.

Who we share your data with

We will not share any of your personal data such as your name and payment information with third parties. The data is used exclusively to provide the services that iamcreative offers. Services from third parties that we use for analytics tracking and social login are used, their privacy policies can be found in the links above.

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
