Privacy Policy and Terms of Use

We appreciate your interest in the Creativity Portal® ("CP") Web site and respect your right to privacy and personal information. Please review our Web site privacy, terms of use, and advertising policies on this page so you understand your responsibility towards using our Web site for informational purposes, for downloading our copyrighted printable items, and for clicking on any third-party link or advertising affiliate links displayed on our site.

Our Privacy Policy

CP gives full respect to your privacy and confidential contact information. We do not give away, rent, or sell any information to third parties regarding your name, e-mail address, or other information you send us through inquiries, submitting URLs, or subscribing to our newsletter.

Third-party Web sites found on the CP (including advertisers) have their own privacy policies which you should become familiar with before submitting any information to them.

General Information & Disclaimers

Liability: The CP does not warrant or assume any legal liability or responsibility for the accuracy, completeness, or usefulness of any information or product represented on this site. Information presented on this site is for educational or entertainment purposes only. You are responsible for your own actions should you use any information found on this site.

No Implied Endorsement: The views of the authors that have submitted articles and projects to this site are owned by them and do not necessarily reflect the views of the CP publisher.

Advertising and Privacy

We use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit our Web site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. If you would like more information about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies, click here.

  • CP does not endorse any third-party ad/site; is not responsible for the content or availability of any third-party ad/site; does not warrant or guarantee the information, services, or products found on any third-party ad/site; and does not recommend any product or service found on any third-party ad/site. Reviews of specific products published on the CP are for informational purposes only.
  • Some third-party sites collect personal information about you and have their own privacy policies regarding the information they collect from you. Before you submit information to them, it is your responsibility to find, read, and understand their privacy policies, as the CP is not responsible for what those companies do with the personal information you submit to them. It is also your responsibility to discern the accuracy of any advertising claim before submitting your information to any third-party site.

Unsolicited Commercial E-mail (UCE, SPAM)

The CP is anti-spam and will never send out unsolicited commercial e-mail (UCE). The CP complies with known opt-in e-mail list laws.

A common deceptive practice of spammers is to "spoof" an originating e-mail address to deceive recipients of its sender. Regretfully, like many popular Web sites, CP's name and e-mail addresses have been used in this manner by unscrupulous persons not affiliated with us, and we unfortunately have no control over the dishonest behavior of others. Please contact us if it appears that you are receiving e-mail spam from our address.

All companies or individuals contributing content (articles, projects, and other features) to the CP for publication retain full legal copyright to their own work and are credited accordingly, unless an alternative agreement between both parties exists.

This principle extends to all printables available on the Creativity Portal and its sister sites.
