Creative Cloud is a subscription. CS6 was available as a subscription or as a perpetual license. If you signed up as a subscription then you have Creative Cloud and can just download the programs and start using it. If you had a perpetual license for CS6 or earlier then there are upgrade options. Everything you need to know is on the product pages. Call Adobe sales if you have questions. Make sure you read everything on the subscription pages.
