In both cases, your consent is being given for us to collect, use, and store your personal information. We will use your information to answer your inquiries, use the “contact us” form on our website, purchase a template, or complete our client intake form, interact with our support or customer service teams, or comment on social media.

We also use them to analyze things such as how many people visit our website, what kind of devices are used to browse it, how visitors ended up on our site, and the country from which they come. You probably already know that cookies can also serve to display ads relevant to your interests. Targeted advertising is sometimes used on our website and on other platforms like Facebook and Instagram.

SHARING YOUR DATA WITH OTHER PEOPLE
There may be situations where we must share your information even though we aim to limit whom we share it with. The following ways we share your information with third parties:
We at The Real Estate Creative Studio are a small team of talented individuals that really are more like a family! It is normal for us to require backup and use other trusted individuals and companies to assist us. Whenever someone works for us, they act on our behalf. If one of our agents needs access to your personal information for a particular task, they must also comply with our privacy rules and limit their use to what is necessary.
To make our job a little easier, we use third-party software and apps. It is possible for these apps to store, process, or share some personal information. Among some of the programs, we are currently using are Gmail, MailChimp, Google Analytics, Dropbox, Google Drive, Stripe, Tailwind, and Wix.
We reserve the right to transfer your information to a new owner if we are involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization, or sale of major assets. Any substantial change in our ownership or transfer of your personal information will be notified to you in advance.
·Law Enforcement: On occasion, we may need to share your personal information with law enforcement. When it is necessary to protect our business or our clients, we will only share your information when we believe, in good faith, that doing so is necessary. Example: We must report information when we believe fraud or misappropriation has occurred, when we believe that our property or safety, or a client's property or safety, is at risk, or when a legal warrant or subpoena has been issued. Fraud cases may also require that we share your information with investigative authorities and banks.
Choosing not to receive these emails: At The Real Estate Creative Studio, we enjoy keeping you informed of all the exciting things at our creative studio. It means that the email address you provided us for this purpose has been given your consent by either clicking an opt-in box or by letting us know otherwise. You can unsubscribe from these emails at any time by clicking 'unsubscribe,' although we cannot promise our hearts won’t break.
Emails you will not be able to opt-out of: Sometimes you won’t have the option to unsubscribe from emails that we send you. The email will only be delivered to you if it contains an important message. For example, we may send you an email, whenever changes to this Policy occur, or once payment has been received.
PERSONAL INFORMATION RETENTION & YOUR RIGHTS
At The Real Estate Creative Studio, we understand the importance of letting go of the outdated and obsolete. That’s why we only keep your personal information for as long as necessary to provide our services. We also respect your right to request at any time for us to:
Give you access to any personal information that we have processed;
Correct any personal information that may have been incorrectly processed;
Delete your personal information from our storage systems;
Transfer your personal information to another service, when technically feasible; and
Stop using your personal information in specific ways, by withdrawing the consent you have given us.
We will always do our best to comply with your requests. However, sometimes there may be legal or contractual duties that stop us from being able to fulfill your wishes. For example, we may need to retain certain information to comply with our tax reporting obligations, or if the information is part of an active investigation, we may not be able to remove it from our systems straight away. Regardless, we will always respond to your requests and let you know the situation.
STORAGE & PROCESSING OF YOUR INFORMATION
Since The Real Estate Creative Studio is headquartered in the United States, most of our data is stored and processed there, but at times, some of it is stored in foreign countries. To ensure that your information isn't lost, we also use some third-party cloud storage services and apps, which may store and transfer your information outside of the United States.
THIRD-PARTY SOFTWARE & APPS LIABILITY
Our company makes every effort to use the best software and apps when it comes to using third-party software. We check out the company's security standards before storing, sharing, and processing your personal information with them.. This Policy includes links to third-party websites and apps that we currently use. We strongly recommend that you take the time to read their privacy policies, as we are not liable for any breach of privacy or data security caused by their negligence.
WHEN IT COMES TO DATA SAFETY
The systems and procedures we have in place safeguard your information physically, electronically, and managerially. Unfortunately, no online system can guarantee that your information is 100% secure. The use of antivirus software, restricting computer access, and changing your passwords from "123abc" can help make sure that your information is not compromised by viruses or system failures. In the unlikely event that your personal information is compromised due to a security breach on our end, we will be sure to notify you as soon as reasonably possible.
Children under the age of 13 should not use our services. If we become aware that we have collected personal information from anyone under this age limit, we immediately delete it. The 0-12-year-old children out there, thinking about their real estate design future, do have our admiration. You must have the permission of your parent or guardian to access our online services if you are 13 or younger. It is also important to keep in mind that your country may have stricter age restrictions if you live outside the United States. Although you may be older than 13, there is a chance you won't be legally allowed to access our online services. Moreover, in order to purchase any of the template packages we offer, you must be over the age of 18.
MODIFICATIONS TO THIS POLICY
Our lives change as the times do. As the laws surrounding privacy evolve and our privacy practices change, we may modify this Policy. You can see when this Policy was last revised at the top of this document. We will send you an email if we think a change we are making will materially impact how we use your information. Other minor changes we make to our privacy practices will be reflected in an updated policy, and it is your responsibility to check our policy periodically to ensure you have understood it. We will use your information in just the ways described in the updated policy if you continue to access or use our services after the policy is revised.
RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES
Rock, Paper, Scissors are used to resolve disagreements over our privacy practices. Using our services constitutes an agreement that if rock,paper,scissors does not bring both parties together, then independent mediation and/or arbitration will be employed to settle the dispute before going to court. All mediation and arbitration costs will be shared between us, except for attorney fees, which each of us will pay individually.
