Cookee Inc., a Delaware corporation provides Purity – the online platform for art and design students to share their projects, display and sell their work, and connect with other creatives around the world located at www.purity.co. We will refer to any or all of this as the “Service.”

We provide this Privacy Policy so you know what we do regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personal information we receive from users of the Service. This Privacy Policy applies only to information that you provide to us through the Service. Your use of the Service is your consent to the collection, disclosure, transfer, processing, storage and other uses of your information as described in this Privacy Policy.

This policy does not, however, describe the practices of third parties that may collect information from you when you interact with them, including sellers that use Purity to accept payment for goods or services (“Sellers”).
