We understand how important it is to protect our users’ Personal Information and we appreciate you trusting us to do so. We do everything in our power to handle your Personal Information with the utmost care and sensibility. As you visit Itly.com and use our services, we want to be transparent about how we are using your information and the ways in which you can protect your privacy. This Privacy Policy notice describes what personal information we may collect, in which ways we may collect said information, how we may handle and share your personal information and which choices we offer, including how to access and update your information.

The privacy policy that applies on any of our domains or sub-domains is always the policy appearing in the footer of each website. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully before browsing any of the Itly.com Websites or submitting any personal information. By visiting Itly.com or a related Website or by accepting the Privacy Policy upon registration on any of the Itly Websites, you expressly accept and consent to the collection, storage, use and disclosure of your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy.

What personal information about users does Itly.com collect and why?

By doing so, we are able to obtain certain types of information when your web browser accesses Itly Websites or advertisements and other contents served by or on behalf of Itly.com on other web sites.

We may also use browser data such as cookies, Flash cookies (also known as Flash Local Shared Objects), or similar data on certain parts of our Website for fraud prevention and other purposes. During some visits we may use software tools such as JavaScript and other tools to measure and collect session information, including page response times, download errors, length of visits to certain pages, page interaction information (such as scrolling, clicks, and mouse-overs), and methods used to browse away from the page. We may collect and store information (including personal information) locally on your device using mechanisms such as browser web storage (including HTML 5) and application data caches. Certain services include a unique application number. This number and information about your installation (for example, the operating system type and application version number) may be sent to us when you install or uninstall that service or when that service periodically contacts our servers, such as for automatic updates. If you use a social media platform or your mobile device (or other method of communication) to interact with Itly.com, the application may have a specific privacy statement that governs the use of personal information related to that application. For example, if you use an Itly mobile application and your mobile device’s settings allow it, we may collect and process Mobile Location Information from your device, including information about your actual location, like GPS signals sent by a mobile device or sensor data from your device that may provide information on nearby Wi-fi access points and cell towers. Our application may be designed to collect information even if you are not logged into the Itly.com application or the Websites.

Your browser may be momentarily directed to the site of a third party which, acting on our behalf, notes or "counts" your response to the email or newsletter before re-directing your browser to its proper destination; this re-direction process will not be apparent to you. To help us make emails more useful and interesting, we often receive a confirmation when you open email from us, only if your computer supports such capabilities. If you do not want to receive emails, newsletters or similar communications from Itly.com, please adjust your notifications preferences in your account settings.

For example, when you visit Itly.com, our service providers and we may place cookies on your computers or mobile devices. Such cookies allow us to recognize you when you return, track and target your interests in order to provide a customized experience. They also help us improve the quality of our services and to detect certain kinds of fraud.

"Cookies" are alphanumeric identifiers (small computer files) that we transfer to your computer's hard drive through your web browser and result in information regarding how often you visit a site and the activities you conduct while on that site, for example by keeping track of your visual preferences or controlling the frequency of "pop-up" windows. Some cookies contain serial numbers that allow us to connect your site activity with other information we store about you in your account or as related to your interactions with our Websites. Most cookies are temporary, whereas others may be configured to last longer. "Session" cookies are temporary cookies used for various reasons, such as to manage page views. Your browser usually erases session cookies once you exit your browser. "Persistent" cookies are more permanent cookies that are stored on your computers or mobile devices even beyond when you exit your browser. We use persistent cookies to enable our systems to recognize your browser for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided such as your user ID if you asked for it to be remembered, storing your preferences, personalizing and improving your experience at Itly.com by providing features such as recently views products, preferred categories. The information collected by cookies also helps us dynamically generate advertising and content on web pages or in emails specifically designed for you and allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our Website and the websites of selected business partners and advertiser, opening our emails, and for what purposes. We may use cookie information, among others, to target certain advertisements to your browser or to determine the popularity of certain content or advertisements. Your browser software can be set to reject all cookies.

Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on settings or visiting the manufacturer’s website. However, since cookies allow you to take advantage of important features of Itly.com, we recommend that you leave them turned on. If you reject our cookies, some of the functions and conveniences of our Website may not work properly.

We do not, however, block you from browsing our Website if you choose to not accept our cookies. Please be advised that you may also encounter cookies from third parties on certain pages of our Websites that we do not control; for example, if you view a web page created by another user, there may be a cookie placed by that web page.

"Web Beacons" and "Pixel Tags" are tiny graphic image files imbedded in a web page or email, that send back to its home server information from the users' browser, allowing us to determine whether they have preformed specific actions. For instance, when you access these pages or open email messages, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action to us, or our service providers. In limited circumstances we may use web beacons to collect information about your use of our Websites and the sites of selected business partners and advertisers, and your use of emails, special promotions and newsletters we send to you. The information collected by these tools allows us to statistically monitor how many people are using our Website and the websites of our selected business partners and advertisers, opening our emails, and for what purposes, in order to measure response to our communications and improve our web pages and promotions. In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is used in non-identifiable ways, without any reference to personal information. For example, when we use information we collect about users in order to optimize our Websites and understand its traffic and usage patterns. In other cases, we may associate the information we collect using cookies and related technologies with personal information. In all such cases, this Privacy Notice governs how we use that information.

If you are referred to Itly.com from a business partner's website or through an invitation facilitated by or in conjunction with an Itly business partner, Itly.com may provide that business partner personal information to validate the referral and to support the terms of the relationship between us and such business partner, which may allow such business partner to contact you directly and to advertise to you.

In such transactions, customer information generally is one of the transferred business assets but remains subject to the promises made in any preexisting privacy notice, unless, of course, the customer consents otherwise. If Itly is involved in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of its assets, we will continue to ensure the confidentiality of any personal information and give the affected users notice via email and/or prominent notice on our Website before personal information is transferred or becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

Such information will be disclosed in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

Disclosure of Aggregate Information: We may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable information about you, which does not allow you to be identified or contacted and that is combined with the non-personal information of other users, publicly and with our partners - like publishers, advertisers, merchants or connected sites. For example, we may share information publicly to show trends about the general use of our services and we may inform third parties regarding the number of users of our Website and the activities they conduct at Itly. Depending on the circumstances, we may or may not charge third parties for this aggregate information.

What about third-party advertisers and links to other Websites?

Itly.com has relationships with third-party advertising companies to place advertisements on our behalf onto other websites, to perform tracking and reporting functions for our Websites and our advertisements, and to include on our Websites third-party advertising and links to other websites. We do not share any personal information with these advertisers or third-party websites. However, these third-parties websites and advertisers, or Internet advertising companies working on their behalf, sometimes use technology to send (or "serve") the advertisements that appear on our Website directly to your browser and may automatically collect information about your visit to our Websites and other websites, such as your IP address, your ISP and the browser you use to visit Itly Websites. They do this by using cookies, web beacons, clear gifs (Graphics Interchange Format), JavaScript, and other technologies.

In addition, the Network Advertising Initiative offers useful information about Internet advertising companies, also called "ad networks" or "network advertisers", including information about how to opt-out of their information collection. Itly.com also displays personalized third-party advertising based on personal information about customers, such as purchases on Itly.com, visits to Itly Websites, or use of payment services. Although Itly does not provide any personal information to advertisers, advertisers, including ad-serving companies, may assume that users who interact with or click on a personalized advertisement meet their criteria to personalize the ad, for example, users in the southeastern United States who bought or browsed for shoes.

This Privacy Policy does not protect you when you use our Communities, Public Forum and similar areas. Prior to posting in these areas, please consider that all the information you post or share in a Community, Public Forum, bulletin board, posting or online discussion is public information and will be accessible to anyone with Internet access, and any personal information you include in your posting may be seen, disclosed, collected and used by third parties that do not adhere to our Privacy Policy. For example, if you post your email address, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties. Please avoid disclosing any personal information that you do not want public.

What choices do you have?

We believe that you benefit from a more personalized experience, especially when we know more about you and the kinds of products you may like. However, you can limit the information you provide to Us, even if it may prevent you from taking advantage of certain Itly.com features. You can limit the communications that We sends to you. You can add or update certain information on pages such as those referenced in the "What Information do you have access to?" section. When you update information, we usually keep a copy of the prior version for our records. If you do not want to receive emails or other messages from us, please adjust your notifications preferences accordingly, by logging into your Itly account, entering the "Profile Settings" and selecting "Notification". If you choose not to receive Itly User Agreement and other legal notices from us, such as this Privacy Notice, those agreements and notices will still govern your use of the Websites, and it is your responsibility to review them for changes. You can also manage your subscriptions by following subscription management instructions contained in the newsletter or commercial messages that we may send you. You may choose to subscribe to some types of messages, and may choose to unsubscribe from others. You can update your subscription preferences from time to time, through your Itly account. Please note that even if you unsubscribe from promotional email messages, we may still need to contact you with important Transactional Information relative to your Itly account and purchases; for example, even if you have unsubscribed from our promotional email messages, we will still send you confirmations when you make a purchase. If you wish to opt out of receiving offers directly from Itly merchants or business partners, you can follow the opt-out instructions in the emails that they send you. You can manage how your browser handles cookies and related technologies by adjusting its privacy and security settings. Browsers are different, so refer to instructions related to your browser to learn about cookie-related and other privacy and security settings that may be available. The "Help" portion of the toolbar on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether. Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on settings or visiting the website of its manufacturer. You can manage how your mobile device and mobile browser share Location Information with Itly, as well as how your mobile browser handles cookies and related technologies by adjusting your mobile device privacy and security settings. Please refer to instructions provided by your mobile service provider or the manufacturer of your device to learn how to adjust your settings. However, because cookies allow you to take advantage of some of our important features, we recommend that you leave them turned on. For instance, as already discussed, if you block or otherwise reject our cookies, you will not be able to make a purchase or use any of the Itly.com features that require you to log in your Itly account. You can read more about cookies and similar tools in the "What About Cookies and related technologies?" section. You can also manage the sharing of certain personal information with us when you connect with us through a social media platform or application, such as through Facebook Connect.

What information do you have access to?

Itly.com gives you access to a broad range of information about your account and your interactions with our Websites, for the limited purpose of viewing and, in certain cases, updating that information. Examples of information you can access easily at Itly.com include personal information in your Itly account, including name, e-mail, phone number, address, username, password, etc.; payment settings and financial information, including credit card information, billing information; up-to-date information regarding recent transactions; communications and personalized advertising preferences, including email notification settings, personal alerts features; Itly.com recommendations, including your recent purchases, view history, reviews, etc.. You can read more about the different options you have to share and remove your personal information in the "What choices do you have?" and "How can you access, review and change your Personal Information?" sections.

How can you access, review or change your Personal Information?

Keeping your personal information current is important and helps ensure that we always offer you personalized and better services. Among all reasons, accurate information is necessary for billing and delivery purposes. You are required to promptly update your personal information if changes occur or information is inaccurate. If any personal information about you is wrong, we strive to provide you with ways to update it quickly or to delete it, unless we have to keep that information for legitimate business or legal purposes. You can do several things to help keep personal information about you current. You can access, review, update and change directly most of personal information you provided to use in your account by logging into your Itly account and accessing the "Profile Settings" section. Generally, we will not manually modify your personal information because it is very difficult to verify your identity remotely. However, some of your personal information can only be changed by contacting our Customer Service or by sending us an email at: customerservice@itly.com. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. When we can provide information access and correction, we will do so for free, except where it would require a disproportionate effort. We may reject requests that are unreasonably repetitive, require disproportionate technical effort, for example, developing a new system or fundamentally changing an existing practice; put at risk the privacy of others, or would be extremely impractical, for instance, requests concerning information residing on backup tapes. Please also note that, once you make a public posting, you may not be able to change or remove it. You should also be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove each and every record of the information you have provided to us from our servers. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from accidental or malicious destruction means that a copy of your personal information may exist in a non-erasable form that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate. Because of this, after you delete information from our services, we may not immediately delete residual copies from our active servers and may not remove information from our backup systems. Nevertheless, we promise that upon receiving your request, all personal information stored in the databases we actively use for daily business activities, and other readily searchable media, will be deleted.

How can you close your Itly account?

We treat data as an asset that must be highly protected and we work hard to protect Itly and all our users from unauthorized access or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of information we hold. To this end, we have implemented an information security program that contains administrative, technical and physical controls that are designed to reasonably safeguard personal information. For example:

  • We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) software, which encrypts information you input during transmission, and we use industry-standard encryption technology to secure Financial Account Information when it is being transmitted over the Internet.
  • We reveal only the last four digits of your credit card numbers when confirming an order; while, of course, we transmit the entire credit card number to the appropriate credit card company during order processing.
  • We offer you verification protected by a password when you register and access your Itly account.
  • We review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against unauthorized access to systems.
  • We restrict access to personal information to Itly employees, contractors and agents who need to know that information in order to process it for us, and who are subject to strict contractual confidentiality obligations and may be disciplined or terminated if they fail to meet these obligations.

However, as you may know, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications, and other users may abuse or misuse your personal information that they collect from the Websites. Therefore, although we use lots of security measures, such as encryption, passwords, physical securities, etc. to protect your privacy, we do not promise, and you should not expect, that your personal information or private communications will always remain private.

What can you do to protect your Personal Information?

our Itly account and the information contained therein are password protected. It is very important that you protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer. Your password is the key to your account. Use unique numbers, letters and special characters. Do not disclose it to anyone and change it periodically. Please note that you are not allowed to provide your Itly password to anyone else. We will never ask for your password in email or over the phone. If you do share your password or your personal information with others, remember that you are always responsible for all actions taken in the name of your Itly account. If you lose control of your password, you may lose substantial control over your personal information and may be subject to legally binding actions taken on your behalf by anybody logging into your Itly account. Therefore, if your password has been compromised for any reason or you suspect that someone else knows or has changed it, you should immediately notify Itly.com and change your password. Always be sure to log out of your account and to close your Internet browser window when you leave the Itly Websites. This is especially important if you use a shared computer or a computer in public locations, to avoid that the individuals using the computer after you may have access to your Itly account. Please note that, in any event, Itly assumes no liability for the abuse of login data and passwords used.

Itly is not responsible for the privacy policy or other content of any other website, including sites that are co-branded.
