Kreatura is committed to user data protection. This page explains how we collect and manage user information, what your data is used for and how you can access, object or ask removal of your data.
The data collected on this website are processed by the website operator. Please use our contact form in case you need to reach out to us.
How we use the information we collect
We take data protection very seriously and we are actively working on newly introduced security measures as they become available. Our website and services use modern TLS encryption in order to protect visitors and users of our products. We treat personal data as confidential and in accordance with data protection laws such as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
We strive to ensure that the data we receive is:
- Processed lawfully, fairly, and in a transparent manner
- Collected only for specified and legitimate purposes
- Limited only and held no longer that is necessary to operate our services
- Processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security
With whom we share your information
We do not share the information we collect with third-party partners. We may disclose data in the following situations:
- In response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order, or a request for cooperation from law enforcement or government agencies; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by the law.
- When we believe disclosure is appropriate in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent, report or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of our company.
While we do not share the information we collect with third-party partners, it’s inescapable to use external services in today’s technology landscape. As such, these external services may see your activity on our website and in our products and might collect information on their own. These are clearly outlined in the data collection sections further down in the document.
The following sections outline the rights of individuals mandated by the General Data Protection Regulation.
Right to be informed
- Right to access & Data portability
Right to rectification
If you find inaccurate personal data that needs to be rectified, you can do so by contacting us and explaining the details of your request. Please use our contact form and we will respond to you as soon as possible.
Right to erasure
The right to erasure is also known as “the right to be forgotten”. Individuals can request the erasure of their personal data on any one of a number of grounds. Please visit Your Account and select the Your Information menu item after logging in to see the appropriate options and instructions.
Right to file complaints
In case of a data protection breach, anyone affected has the right to file a complaint with data protection regulatory authorities. Please refer to EDPS’s article on how you can contact a Data Protection Officer or communicate your concerns by other means.

Data collection in our products
LayerSlider standalone version (jQuery)
The standalone (jQuery) version of LayerSlider does not collect any kind of information, does not contain any analytics or tracking solution.
LayerSlider WordPress plugin
The WordPress version of LayerSlider does not contain any analytics or tracking solutions. However, unlike the standalone version, we collect some limited information in order to validate your license and operate our services.
Upon activating our products using your license key, we will store a copy of the following information:
- The license key used for product activation
- The product and its version number that you are activating
- The domain name of your site
- The date of activation
If you received LayerSlider bundled in another product, for example, in a WordPress theme, this does not apply to you.
Template Store downloads
After performing product activation, our systems record the templates you may download from the Template Store. This is purely statistical data for the purpose of measuring popular templates and does not include any kind of personal information. This does not apply to you if you have not completed Product activation or received LayerSlider bundled in another product, for example, in a WordPress theme.
In order to serve and check for updates, from time to time, your WordPress installation establishes a connection to our servers and sends basic information about your website. These are:
- The WordPress version number
- The product you have installed (i.e. LayerSlider) and its version number
- The release channel (i.e. stable or beta)
- The license key that was used for product activation
- The domain name and IP address that your website uses
- The language/local you are using
- The API version of our auto-update feature
This information is used to validate your license and product activation, serve different versions of updates (e.g. early access beta versions) and to provide localized versions of the update information.
LayerSlider has built-in support for popular services like YouTube, Vimeo, and Google Fonts. These services can see your activity when you are using them. Starting with LayerSlider version 6.7.6, we are asking your consent to use these services. A new Privacy tab has also been added to the LayerSlider -> Options page where you can enable/disable these services.
Please note: it is entirely your decision whether you want to embed content from third parties or not. Services like these can only see your or your visitors’ activity in case you are using them. It is independent of LayerSlider and also applies to services that we may not directly support.
Data collection on our website
Some data are collected when you provide it to us, for example, by subscribing to our newsletter. Other data are collected automatically by our IT systems as soon as you enter our website. These are primarily technical data such as the web browser and operating system you are using.
Analytics and advertisement
These analyses are used to improve our website by understanding the content you are interested in and to measure website traffic and the effectiveness of advertisement campaigns.
You can object to or completely opt-out of this analysis in several ways:
This website uses the following cookies:
- Cookies set by Google Analytics for the reason described in the previous section.
- A cookie indicating for Google Analytics that you have opted-out from the service.
In case you object using cookies, you can configure your web browser to reject all cookies on this website. This process varies from browser to browser, but they usually offer a way to block cookies globally or on specified websites only.
Server log files
Due to the nature of server environments, servers usually tend to record some basic information about your visit in log files. These are:
- Date and time of your visit
- Operating system and web browser
- Referrer URL
- IP address
These log files are accessible for the website operator only. They primarily used to identify potential issues, for example, errors occurring on the page, inaccessible pages or dead URLs. Sometimes they are also used to measure the amount of website traffic.
We use server logs to maintain the stability of our website. We do not use these log files to combine with data from other sources. Log files are automatically deleted after a certain period when they are no longer useful for site maintenance.
Notifications & Newsletter
Our newsletter service operates strictly on an opt-in basis. We do not send you promotional emails unless you consent and willingly provide your email address to us.
If you’ve purchased one of our products, we may send you version update notifications when it’s relevant to you. We may also send you important service updates in justified cases like a potential security breach.
You can opt-out and unsubscribe from any of our email lists at any time by logging in to Your Account.
We use MailerLite as a newsletter and email marketing provider. As such, MailerLite will be able to see your name, email address and certain interactions such as subscribing or unsubscribing.
Some of our demonstration content you can find on this website may include Like or Share buttons for the popular social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. We have made a conscious effort to not use the native buttons and UI elements they serve in order to protect your privacy. The native buttons and other developer assets they offer could be used to track your activity on websites where they are being used. As a viable alternative, we use so-called “sharer URLs”, which will not reveal your visit and you can still use sharing features from other websites.
Some of our demonstration content you can find on this website include videos from popular video sharing sites like YouTube and Vimeo. LayerSlider relies on the developer tools that YouTube and Vimeo provide. If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube or Vimeo video, a connection to their servers will be established. If you have signed up and logged in to these services, they will be able to recognize your visit and associate it directly with your profile.
For more information about how YouTube and Vimeo handle and protect user data, please visit the following URLs:
Google Fonts offers hundreds of open-source and free web fonts to customize website appearance with unique typography. We use Google Fonts throughout our website in order to ensure a uniform and pleasing appearance for every visitor. For this purpose, your browser has to connect to Google’s servers and Google may be able to see your visit.
Use of Google Fonts is unauthenticated. No cookies are sent by website visitors to the Google Fonts API. Requests to the Google Fonts API are made to resource-specific domains, such as fonts.googleapis.com or fonts.gstatic.com, so that your requests for fonts are separate from and do not contain any credentials you send to google.com while using other Google services that are authenticated, such as Gmail.
Some of our pages and demonstration content use Google Maps to show visitors interactive maps. If you visit one of our pages featuring a Google Maps map, a connection to Google’s servers will be established. If you have signed up and logged in to Google services, they will be able to recognize your visit and associate it directly with your profile.
We are using Google reCAPTCHA to secure our contact forms and other interfaces against bots and spammers. Using Google reCAPTCHA is easy for people, but hard for bots and automated solutions, so they cannot post online forms. If you have signed up and logged in to Google services, they will be able to recognize your visit and associate it directly with your profile.
