Private Communication

When you communicate with the Creative Archive, for instance by email or form submission, this communication is kept private. However, it flows through a Google mailbox and it may stay there for archival purposes as long as Creative Archive runs.

Minimal analytics

The Creative Archive collects on each page load a minimal amount of non-personal visitor information (detailed below). This information is kept private in a Google account.

If you can suggest how to reach the same purposes while collecting less information, I'd love to hear from you!
