CreativeR (“Provider”) provides store pickup and delivery apps and widgets (“App”) to merchants (“Merchant”) who use Shopify.
PERSONAL INFORMATION THE APP COLLECTS
When the Merchant installs the App, the Provider is automatically able to access certain types of information from the Merchant’s Shopify account, this includes:
- Read and modify orders
This is required to pull in the order information from your Shopify Account into the App and is critical to its functioning. Order information is used for reporting, updating of tags / shipping addresses and for sending email notifications to your bricks and mortar stores. We receive the entire order information from Shopify for initial process but only store the minimum required data in the Apps database. This includes the following details; customer name, customer email, customer phone, customer address, order total, currency code, pickup/delivery/shipping date, time and location, order name, external order ID.
- Read and modify draft orders
This is required to allow the Merchant the ability to easily convert a standard draft order into a pickup, delivery or date based shipping order. The App uses and stores draft order information identically to standard orders.
- Read products
Required to allow the Merchant to specify which products are available from which outlets within the App. It’s also used to display product images within the App. We only store the minimum required information on your products which includes; product ID, product name and thumbnail.
- Read and write carrier services (shipping rates)
Required for the App to generate pickup, delivery and shipping rates within your shops checkout process.
- Read and write themes
Required to embed the Apps code into the Merchant’s themes. This streamlines the installation process by removing manual file uploading and code modifications.
- Script tags
Used for legacy users of the App where the Provider dynamically loads the App code via a script tag rather than embedding directly into the theme.
- Read shop information
Shopify Accounts linked to an app are provided basic information about the shop by Shopify. This includes personal information such as the shop’s address, email, phone, location, locale and store owners name and email address. This information is needed to customize the application based on the shop details, as well as to help identify customer service requests.
Additionally, we collect the following types of personal information from the Merchant and/or Merchant’s customers once you have installed the App:
- Log and device data
When you use CreativeR Apps, our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit our App. This log data may include your web address you came from or are going to, your device model, operating system, browser type, unique device identifier, IP address, mobile network carrier, and time zone or location. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
- Cookies and tracking technologies

- Aggregate or De-identified Information
The Provider may disclose aggregate, anonymous, or de-identified information about users for marketing, advertising, research, compliance, or other purposes.
Interest based advertising is the collection of data from different sources and across different platforms in order to predict an individual’s preferences or interest and to deliver to that individual, or his/her computer, smart phone or tablet, advertising based on his/her assumed preference or interest inferred from the collection of data pertaining to that individual or others who may have a similar profile or similar interests.
The Provider works with a variety of third parties to attempt to understand the profiles of the individuals who are most likely to be interested in the CreativeR products or services so that we can send them promotional emails, or serve our advertisements to them on the websites and mobile apps of other entities.
These third parties include: (a) advertising networks, which collect information about a person’s interests when that person views or interacts with one of their advertisements; (2) attribution partners, which measure the effectiveness of certain advertisements; and (3) business partners, which collect information when a person views or interacts with one of their advertisements.
In collaboration with these third parties, the Provider collects information about our customers, prospects and other individuals over time and across different platforms when they use these platforms or interact with them. Individuals may submit information directly on our Sites or on platforms run by third parties, or by interacting with us, our advertisements, or emails they receive from us or from third parties. We may use special tools that are commonly used for this purpose, such as cookies, beacons, pixels, tags, mobile advertising IDs, flash cookies, and similar technologies. We may have access to databases of information collected by our business partners.
The information we or third party collect enables us to learn what purchases the person made, what ads or content the person sees, on which ads or links the person clicks, and other actions that the person takes on our Sites, or in response to our emails, or when visiting or using third parties’ platforms.
We, or the third parties with which we work, use the information collected as described above to understand the various activities and behaviors of our customers, Site visitors and others. We, or these third parties, do this for many reasons, including: to recognize new or past visitors to our Sites; to present more personalized content; to provide more useful and relevant ads – for example, if we know what ads you are shown we can try not to show you the same ones repeatedly; to identify visitors across devices, sales channels, third party websites and Sites, or to display or send personalized or targeted ads and other custom content that is more focused on a person’s perceived interest in products or services similar to those that we offer.
Our interest-based ads may be served to you in emails or on third-party platforms. We may serve these ads about our products or services or send commercial communications directly ourselves or through these third parties.
Visitors may opt out of receiving interest based advertising by advertising networks that may be delivered to them on our platform and other websites by visiting the following websites: http://www.aboutads.info/consumers; and http://www.networkadvertising.org. These features will opt a Visitor out of many – but not all – of the interest-based advertising activities in which we or third parties engage.
DO NOT TRACK POLICY
California law requires that operators of websites and online services disclose how they respond to a Do Not Track signal. Some browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the website or online service that a user visits, indicating that the user does not wish to be tracked. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret Do Not Track signals, we do not currently respond to Do Not Track signal. We continue to work with the online industry to define a common understanding of how to treat Do Not Track signals.
In the meantime, you may opt out of receiving interest based advertising from advertising networks that may be delivered on our platform and other websites by visiting the following websites. If you want to opt out of this online behavioral advertising, visit the following sites: https://www.aboutads.info/consumers and https://www.networkadvertising.org.
This will opt you out of many – but not all – of the interest-based advertising activities in which we or third parties engage. Choices you make may be browser and device specific. If you delete your cookies or use a different browser or a different computer or device, you may need to update your opt-out choices. Other third-party Sites provide visitors with the ability to opt-out of receiving interest-based ads on their Sites that you need to control through your settings on that Site. For example, to opt out of Google’s use of your online behavior for advertising purposes, visit Google’s Ad Settings page.
