Creatology – for all types of Creatives
Creatology – our website address is: https://creatology.com.
We value direct communication with our growing community of creatives and innovators and strive to expand the use of tools, apps, and forums to further safe, secure, appropriate, and meaningful communication.
We value privacy and only publish data submitted with the intent for publication. For example, artist and author names are published when project or contest rules require or request publication in order for the property owner to receive proper credit for such work.
Data and Comments
When visitors submit data or leave comments on the site, we follow traditional safe practices and collect data only for its stated purpose, and for security and privacy protections. Examples of data collection: (1) data submitted by site visitors in a comments form; and (2) the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
As a small business with an eye on growth, we make every effort to meet the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance standards. Presently, we operate as a blog and creative interest forum. We only allow or publish comments according to WordPress norms. Communication through email is primarily for the purpose of customer support along with a basic newsletter. No personal data is required to participate in the reading of blog postings, forums, or educational articles, or joining in activities such as case studies or other project exercises. To ensure GDPR compliance, email and user communications are documented by Create.com, our hosting service provider. Another goal is to remain a good online citizen and we will always make a good faith effort to achieve GDPR compliance.

Creatology has a mission to inspire creative successes through education, the use of exceptional resources, and community engagement. Special projects are sometimes part of the educational process.
When intellectual property is submitted for use in a project, the rules for intellectual property ownership are simple:
- Ownership of intellectual property is retained by the owner.
- Project participants must confirm ownership of their submitted intellectual property.
- Project participants must agree to follow project rules and grant Creatology the right to use participant-submitted intellectual property in accordance with project rules. Examples of the use of intellectual property include gallery and feature presentations for visual art, with similar feature presentations for music and written works.
Creatology retains ownership and/or rights of ownership of intellectual property which it provides to projects. DotComism and Creatology retain rights to the digital assets they provide.
Premium assets ensure valuable exposure
Creatology projects often promote emerging brands and exceptional .com domain names aided by creative works from the community.
Fifteen extraordinary digital assets are now available for educational and monetization projects:
Emerging power brands
New market prototypes
Special art and global domains
Innovative social platform concepts
Expect this list to grow hand-in-hand with continued community engagement.
No fees for project participation
No fee is ever required to participate in a project or educational offering. And while there is no guarantee of financial returns, members of the creative community are certain to benefit in several ways while growing an invaluable baseline of web3 knowledge. Members are encouraged to participate in projects to become more proficient in web3 monetization methodologies for example, and to study and download creative and analytical tools.
In general, the DotComism and Creatology business enterprises benefit from creative engagements online – and the creative community benefits from elite exposure to art, music, and written works. Project participants will benefit from additional topics like web3 monetization incubation, and everyone can benefit from an expansive creative toolkit.
