Website Visitors

Like most website operators, Creator Courses collects non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use its website.

Creator Courses also collects potentially personally-identifying information like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving Comments (as defined in the TOS). Creator Courses only discloses logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that it uses and discloses personally-identifying information as described below, except that blog commenter IP addresses and email addresses are visible and disclosed to the administrators of the blog where the comment was left.

Certain visitors to Creator Courses’s websites choose to interact with Creator Courses in ways that require Creator Courses to gather personally-identifying information.

We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. And visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain website-related activities.

User Guidelines

Creator Courses strongly believes in freedom of speech. However, there are a few categories of content and behavior that we don’t permit because we consider them harmful to the community. To be transparent about what is and isn’t allowed on this site, we’ve put together this set of guidelines. The following activity/material isn’t allowed on Creator Courses or within its community.


Illegal content and conduct.

Self-explanatory.

Intellectual property infringement. 

Creator Courses offers a way for users to share and interact with each other, however illegally sharing copyrighted materials is not permitted.  If you’re not sure, a good rule of thumb is to always ask the rights holder for permission before republishing their content.

Pornography.

We know that there may be different definitions of this, but generally, we define pornography as visual depictions of nudity or sexually explicit acts. If you need to be 18 or older to view content posted, it is not allowed.

Technologically harmful content.

Please don’t upload or link to malware, spyware, adware, or other malicious or destructive code.

Impersonation.

Don’t claim to be a person or organization you’re not.

Directly threatening material.

We don’t tolerate direct and realistic threats of violence. (This doesn’t mean that we’ll remove all hyperbole or offensive language.)

Posting private information.

Don’t share someone’s personal information without their consent.

Advertising.

Advertising isn’t permitted without express written conscent.

Spam or machine-generated content.

You know what this is, but in general, sites such as those primarily dedicated to drive traffic to third party sites, boost SEO, phish, spoof, or promote affiliate marketing aren’t cool.


Bear in mind that these are just guidelines — interpretations are up to Creator Courses. These guidelines are not exhaustive and are subject to change.

If you feel a user is violating these guidelines, the privacy policy, or the Terms of Service, please get in touch.
