By visiting, logging into, registering or using Craftybase (or “app”) or the Craftybase website, you agree that it’s okay for us to collect, use and transfer your personal data under the terms of this policy.

About cookies

If you’re like us, you’ve probably not given too much thought to any cookie that doesn’t involve chocolate, so here are the essential facts: digital cookies are small files made up of bits of data, stored in your phone or computer’s temporary memory when you navigate around the web. Unless you have indicated your objection, our system will issue cookies to your computer when you access, register on and log on to the Craftybase website or use Craftybase. Cookies make it easier for you to log on to and use these sites during visits.

Mainly, we use cookies to tell our website and app, “hey, you remember that computer who visited last week? Well, it’s back!” That cookie information helps us understand traffic patterns on our website, helps us store any preferences or passwords that you’ve asked us to store, and helps us understand how well our advertising is going.

How we use cookies

We use cookies for a number of things across the Craftybase website and Craftybase, including:

Personal information and cookies:
