3. Our Use of Personal Data
We use the personal data that you provide to us to correspond with you, provide services to you in accordance with the Terms and exercise our rights under the Terms. We may also use your personal data to notify you of any our news or promotions, or those of our commercial partners, which we believe may be of interest to you (if you have consented to us doing so).
4. Sharing Your Personal Data
If you are a creative buyer then we may share your personal data with the creative designer of any design which you have agreed to purchase, to the extent necessary to fulfil our obligations to that creative designer under the Terms and otherwise in connection with our role as operator of the Site. Likewise, if you are a creative designer then we may share your personal data (or that of your personnel) with creative buyers in connection with designs which you provide or have provided in order to fulfil our obligations to the creative buyers under the Terms or in connection with our role as operator of the Site.
If you are a creative buyer then the creative designer of any design may itself reserve the right to collect, use and share your personal data. This would be a matter between you and the creative designer and governed by the Standard Licence Terms and the general law. We are not responsible for the exercise of any such rights (or the misuse of your data) by any designer.
We may provide your personal data to our third party service providers, strictly to the extent necessary for them to provide the relevant services to us. In particular, our service providers include:
- PayPal (Europe) S.a.r.l. et Cie, S.C.A., our payment processing service provider, who may process certain information in taking payments from and making payments to you; and
- WP Engine, our hosting service provider, who may process certain information in hosting our data and systems.
Each of these service providers may further provide your personal data to their own service providers who provide necessary support functions (for instance, the third parties who host their servers). However, such disclosure will again only be for the purpose of providing the relevant services to us.
We may also provide your personal data to any acquirer of our business or assets (in which case our accumulated data, including your personal data, will be comprised in our business or assets).
We may disclose your personal data if required to do so by law, to prevent an unlawful act, or otherwise to appropriate authorities in connection with any civil action or criminal report or investigation relating to your activities. For example, if you use our Site to distribute unlawful material, then we may pass your information to the police.
Where you have consented to our doing so, we may also provide your personal data to selected third parties for marketing purposes.
We may provide (non-personal) technical information regarding your use of the site to Google, Inc., and to the operators of creative designer accounts on our Site, in each case in connection with our use of Google’s Google Analytics service. This might let us, for example, let creative designers know how many visitors have viewed their design listings.
5. Where Your Personal Data Is Stored
Your personal data may be transferred to and stored outside the European Economic Area (EEA), and processed by individuals outside the EEA who work for us, one of the creative designers featured on our Site, or one of our service providers. By providing us with your personal data, you consent to such transfer, storage and processing.
6. Third Parties and Security

You should ensure that you have read and understood any relevant policies.
Although we do our best to ensure the security of personal data provided to us (and to use only reputable service providers), any transmission of data via the Internet is by its nature insecure and we cannot guarantee the security of any personal data you provide to us.
