Personal Information

You may be asked to voluntarily provide your name, address, phone number, email address or other personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) to have access to some features of the Site. You may always refuse to provide your Personal Information, and this may lead to our inability to provide you with certain offerings, services, or products. We or our business partners may also collect information that is anonymous, such as your IP address (a number used to identify your computer on the Internet) or the type of browser you are using (“Anonymous Information”), through the use of cookies or by other means.

We will never sell your Personal Information to any third party.

We post customer testimonials and case studies on our Websites, which may contain Personal Information. We obtain each customer’s consent via email or phone prior to posting the customer’s name and testimonial.

Social Media

B9Creations may also provide social media features on the Websites that enable you to share information with your social networks and to interact with us on various social media sites. Your use of these features may result in the collection or sharing of information about you, depending on the feature. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and settings on the social media sites with which you interact to make sure you understand the information that could be shared by those sites.

External Websites

The Websites may contain links to other sites on the Internet that are owned and operated by third parties. If you access those links, you will leave the B9Creations website. B9Creations does not control those third-party sites or their privacy practices, which may differ from B9Creation's privacy practices. B9Creations does not endorse or make any representations about third-party websites. The personal data you choose to provide to or that is collected by those third parties is not covered by the B9Creations Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any website before submitting your personal information.

We offer a publicly accessible, community forum. Please keep in mind that if you directly disclose any information through our forum, this information may be collected and used by others.

Service Providers

B9Creations may work with associated businesses which may perform certain functions on our behalf, such as sending email messages, managing data, processing credit card payments or providing services to users. These businesses have access to your Personal Information only to the extent necessary to perform these specific functions and may not use it for any other purpose. We may use third party advertising companies to place ads on the Websites and to place our ads on other websites. If B9Creations is involved in the sale of a substantial portion of its business assets, Anonymous or Personal Information may be among the transferred assets.

We use a variety of security technologies and procedures to help protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When sensitive Personal Information (such as credit card information) is collected in our store, it is protected by our third-party e-commerce provider.

Phishing Scams

International Transfer of Information

To facilitate our global operations, we may transfer and access Personal Information from around the world, including the United States. If you are in the European Union, or other regions with laws governing data collection and use, by providing your personal data to us, you consent to the transfer to, processing, and storage of your personal information in the United States and other countries, the privacy laws of which may be considered less strict than those of your region. This consent applies in addition to other legal grounds for transfer, processing and storage of your Personal Information, such as for contract fulfillment purposes.

Necessary For The Performance of The Contract Between B9Creations and Its Members

B9Creations provides a voluntary service; you can choose whether or not you want to use the services. However, if you want to use the services you need to agree to our Terms of Use, which set out the contract between B9Creations and its users. As we operate in countries worldwide (including the US) and use technical infrastructure in the US to deliver Services to you, in accordance with the contract between us, we need to transfer your Personal Information to the US and to other jurisdictions as necessary to provide Services. Simply put, we can’t provide you with Services and perform our contract with you without moving your Personal Information around the world.

Changes to the Policy

We may modify this Policy at any time by posting a revised version of the Policy here, with an updated effective date. Accordingly, we urge you to frequently review the Policy. We will always apply the Policy under which your information was collected, unless we obtain your prior consent. By using the Websites and providing us with your personally identifiable information, you consent to our use of such information as described in this Policy.
