We want to be open about the way in which we collect, store and disseminate user data and we are committed to safeguarding the privacy of our users. This Privacy Policy will tell you about our information collection practices on this Platform.
Thank you for visiting us on www.manolakreativ.com (“Platform”). The Platform is owned and operated by Manola Middle East FZE and together with the Platform, is referred to collectively as “MANOLA KREATIV” in this Privacy Policy.
References to “we,” “our,” and “us” in this Privacy Policy means MANOLA KREATIV.
References to “you” and “your” means persons or users initiating purchases or those visiting or using the Platform.
This Privacy Policy is to be read in conjunction with the Terms & Conditions.
This Privacy Policy sets out the following:

If the terms and conditions of the Privacy Policy are not acceptable to you, please do not submit any personally identifiable information via this Platform and immediately cease from accessing the Platform.

Scope of Policy

Please be aware that this Privacy Policy applies only to this Platform. Within the Platform, you may see links or references to other websites which are not covered by this Privacy Policy and are likely to have different information practices.
We encourage you to read the privacy policy of each third party website or technology platform or application (“Third Party Sites”) you visit or use. We provide any third party references and links for your convenience only and this should not be construed as an endorsement of Third Party Sites in any manner. You are solely responsible for any interactions you may have with any Third-Party Sites.
This Platform is not directed to, and does not seek to collect personally identifiable information from, minors under the age of 18. If we are informed that we have collected information from someone in this age category, we will take reasonable steps to delete that information, subject to applicable legal and regulatory requirements.

Collection of Information

The Platform provides a wide range of information and third-party services to visitors. Like other similar technology platforms, we may collect information from our visitors, including personally identifiable information (your full name, e-mail address, phone number) and non-personally identifiable information (e.g. aggregate statistics about what parts of our Platform are most popular). This Platform collects information from its visitors and users in 2 ways: actively and passively.
Active information collection refers to instances in which we gather information from you when you register as a user on the Platform, or if you sign up for an electronic newsletter, or if you send us a message via an e-mail reply mechanism provided by this Platform. Active information collection can include both personally identifiable information (e.g., your full name or information that is unique to you) and non-personally identifiable information (e.g., if we were to ask for your first name and a list of the top three things you like about our Platform).
Passive information collection refers to instances in which we collect information from you that you have not actively provided. We may use special technologies to passively collect non-personally identifiable information while you are visiting the Platform. These technologies allow us to collect certain kinds of non-personally identifiable information, including but not limited to the type of web browser you use, IP address, time zone, the date and time of your visit, the operating system you use, the specific pages you visit, the address of the website you visited prior to entering the Platform and the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Platform, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Platform, and information about how you interact with the Platform. We do not link this passively collected information with personally identifiable information you have actively provided elsewhere on this Platform. We reserve the right to share with third parties, including our business partners and advertisers, the anonymous aggregated information that we have passively collected via this Platform.
We collect information identified above, using the following technologies:
Additionally, when and if you make or attempt to purchase through the Platform, we collect certain information from you, including your name, address, location or geo-tag information, email address and phone number.

What do we do with your information

We reserve the right to use, store or disclose personal information provided via this Platform as necessary to respond to your requests, help and facilitate your purchases on the Platform, comply with applicable laws, regulations, legal processes, and law enforcement inquiries, as required by litigation, to take precautions against liability, protect the security and integrity of the Platform and the safety of its users. The information we collect from you will only be used to provide you with the services available through the Platform and disclosed in accordance with this Privacy Policy or as specifically disclosed to you at the time you provide the information.
We will not sell, lease, transfer, share, or otherwise permit access to your personally identifiable information with any third parties other than as described in this Privacy Policy.
We reserve the right to sell, lease, transfer, or otherwise share without restriction aggregated, de-identified, and other non-personally identifiable information regarding Platform usage, sales, traffic patterns, demographics, and other statistics about our Platform or those from whom we collect information via the Platform.
For clarification, the Platform does not intend to, and will not store any financial information relating to you.
