Privacy Policy
 

On behalf of Ilecy, Inc., a California Corporation (referred to as "Ilecy," "Ilecy.com," "us" or "we"), we welcome you to Ilecy.com and its family of websites (collectively, the "Sites"). We recognize that your privacy is important. This Policy discloses the privacy practices for the Sites, and also covers how personal and other information that we receive or collect about you is treated. Please read the information below to learn the following regarding your use of the Sites.

You acknowledge that this Privacy Policy is designed to be read in connection with the Terms of & Conditions of Use and that by accessing or using the Sites, you agree to be bound by the Terms & Conditions of Use, as well as this Privacy Policy. We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make any changes to our privacy practices or this Privacy Policy we will post the revised Privacy Policy on this page. Your continued use of the Sites or Services available through the Site after such modifications will constitute your acknowledgment of the modified Policy, and your agreement to abide and be bound by Policy.

If you have any questions, please contact us by sending an email tosupport@ilecy.com.

IMPORTANT: BY USING THE SITES AND/OR OFFERINGS AVAILABLE ON THIS SITES, YOU GIVE YOUR CONSENT THAT ALL PERSONAL DATA THAT YOU SUBMIT MAY BE PROCESSED BY US IN THE MANNER AND FOR THE PURPOSES DESCRIBED BELOW. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS, DO NOT USE THE SITES.

  1. Types of Information We Collect

    We may collect two types of information about our users: (a) Personally Identifiable Information and (b) Aggregate Information.

    1. Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”): This refers to information that lets us know the specifics of who you are. Examples of PII may include your first and last name, email address, and telephone number. You may also voluntarily provide other PII, whether or not specifically requested by us, by voluntarily supplying your own details through the “Contact Us” form; the “Chat” feature located on the Sites; or by posting publically viewable comments on the Site. You agree that we may collect any PII voluntarily supplied by you, whether or not we have requested it. You must not submit any PII relating to a third party which you do have permission from such third party to provide to us. We do not knowingly collect any information relating to third parties which you do not have permission to provide.

      When you engage in certain activities on our Sites, such as sending us a message through the “Contact Us” form, we will ask you to provide certain PII.

    2. Aggregate Information: This refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific individual. We gather certain information about you based upon where you visit on our Sites and what other Sites may have directed you to us. This information includes, but is not limited to; information about your computer's IP address; technical information about your computer or mobile device (such as type of device, web browser or operating system); your preferences and settings (time zone, language, privacy preferences, product preferences, etc.); the URL of the last web page you visited before coming to one of our sites; the buttons, controls and ads you clicked on (if any); how long you used Ilecy and which services and features you used; and your online or offline status of Ilecy. This information, which is collected in a variety of different ways, is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include the WebSite's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") that points to the site you just came from, which URL you go to after visiting our Sites, what browser you are using, and your Internet Protocol ("IP") address.

  2. How We Collect and Use Information

    We do not collect any PII about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. However, you may be required to provide certain PII to us when you elect to use certain services available on the Sites, such as requesting that we contact you by sending us a message through the “Contact Us” form on the Sites. We will primarily use your PII to provide information and service offerings to you. We will also use certain forms of PII to enhance the operation of our Sites, improve our internal marketing and promotional efforts, statistically analyze Site use, improve our information offerings, and customize the Sites’ content, layout, and services. We may use PII to deliver information or service offerings to you, and to contact you if you request that we do so. Finally, we may use your PII to enforce our agreements with you, including our Sites Terms of Service, and this Privacy Policy.

    We may also collect certain Aggregate Information. For example, we may use your IP address to diagnose problems with our servers, software, to administer our Sites and to gather demographic information. If your web browser emits “do not track” signals, or you use other mechanisms that provide you the opportunity to prevent the collection of PII or Aggregate Information about your online activities, we honor these signals or mechanisms by refraining from collecting information about you.

  3. Cookies

    Depending on how you use our Sites, we may store cookies on your computer in order to collect certain aggregate data about our users and to customize certain aspects of your specific user experience. A cookie is a small data text file which is stored on your computer that uniquely identifies your browser. Cookies may also include more personalized information, such as your IP address, browser type, the server your computer is logged onto, the area code and zip code associated with your server, and your first name to welcome you back to our Sites. We may use cookies to perform tasks such as: monitoring aggregate Sites usage metrics, storing and remembering your passwords (if you allow us to do so), storing account and advertising preferences that you have set, and personalizing the Services we make available to you. However, we do not use cookies to track your browsing behaviors.

    Most browsers are initially set up to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some aspects of the Sites may not function properly if you elect to disable cookies.

  4. Release of Information

    We will not sell, trade, or rent your PII to others. We do provide some of our service offerings through contractual arrangements made with affiliates, service providers, partners and other third parties ("Service Partners"). We and our Service Partners may need to use some PII in order to perform tasks between our respective sites, or to deliver services to you. For example, we use Service Partners to assist us in delivering our electronic newsletters and communications to you; collecting PII voluntarily submitted by you through our “Chat” feature; and to analyze Aggregate Information.

    We will choose Service Partners who adopt and promote strong privacy policies. However, the use of your PII by our Service Partners is governed by the respective privacy policies of those providers and is not subject to our control.

    Except as otherwise discussed in this Privacy Policy, this document only addresses the use and disclosure of information we collect from you. Any other sites accessible through our Sites, including those of our Service Partners, have their own privacy policies and data collection, use and disclosure practices. Please consult each site's privacy policy. We are not responsible for the policies or practices of third parties.

    Other than our Service Partners, we do not allow third parties to collect PII or Aggregate information about you or your online activities when you use our Sites.

    Occasionally we may be required by law enforcement or judicial authorities to provide PII to the appropriate governmental authorities. In such cases, we will disclose PII upon receipt of a court order, subpoena, or to cooperate with a law enforcement investigation. We fully cooperate with law enforcement agencies in identifying those who use our services for illegal activities. We reserve the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that we in good faith believe to be unlawful.

  5. Updating and Correcting Information

    We believe you should have the ability to access and edit the PII that you have provided to us. To access, change or update any PII for your membership, sign in to your Ilecy parent or teacher account, go to the Membership tab, and click on “Manage Your Account”.

    We encourage you to promptly update your PII if it changes. You may ask to have the information on your account deleted or removed; however, some information, such as past transactions, logs of technical support calls, or other information may not be deleted. In addition, it may be impossible to completely delete your information without some residual information because of backups.

  6. Your California Privacy Rights

    Upon your request, California Civil Code Section 1798.83, known as the “Shine the Light” law, requires us to provide to you (a) a list of your personal information, if any, which we have disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year, and (b) the names and addresses of those third parties. You may make such a request once per calendar year, and we will provide the information to you free of charge. Please send any requests made pursuant to this section to us by e-mail by clicking here. However, as defined under Section 1798.83, we do not currently share any personal information with third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

  7. User Choices on Collection and Use of Information

    We may, from time to time, send you e-mail and/or newsletters regarding information or services that we feel may interest you. Only Ilecy (or agents working on behalf of Ilecy and under confidentiality agreements) will send you these notifications. If you do not want to receive correspondence from us, you can "opt-out" by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each correspondence.

    You also have choices with respect to cookies, as described above. By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies. If you choose to reject all cookies some parts of our Sites may not work properly in your case.

  8. Security of Your PII

    At our Sites you can be assured that your PII is secure as we strive to take appropriate security measures to protect against unauthorized access to or unauthorized alteration, disclosure or destruction of your PII. For example:

    1. We work hard to ensure that the data we collect is reliable, accurate, complete and current. We use PII only for the purposes for which it was collected or to comply with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or document retention requirements.
    2. We limit access to PII only to specific employees, Service Partners, contractors and agents who have a reasonable need to come into contact with your information. 
    3. Additionally, we also employ a number of physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect PII. Our secure servers and our data centers are protected by encryption, and our servers reside behind firewalls and password protection.

    Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or any wireless network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your PII, you acknowledge that: (a) there are security and privacy limitations inherent to the Internet which are beyond our control; and (b) the security, integrity and privacy of any and all information and data exchanged between you and us through the Sites cannot be guaranteed.

    You should also be aware that when Personally Identifiable Information is voluntarily disclosed (i.e. your name, email address, etc.) by you in the comments you post on the Sites’ blogs or in other public areas on the Sites, that information, along with any information disclosed in your communication, can be collected and used by third parties and may result in unsolicited messages (including unwanted spam messages) from third parties. Such activities are beyond our control and this Policy does not apply to such information. Please consult our Terms of Service for policies regarding user-provided information.

  9. Children's Website Privacy Policy

    This Privacy Policy is provided to you in conformity with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 ("COPPA"). COPPA requires that we notify parents and legal guardians and obtain consent from parents and legal guardians before we collect, use and/or disclose personal information from children less than thirteen years of age.

    PLEASE NOTE, Ilecy DOES NOT SOLICIT PERSONAL INFORMATION DIRECTLY FROM CHILDREN NOR DO WE KNOWINGLY COLLECT PERSONAL INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN WHO MAY VISIT OUR SITE, AND WE DO NOT WANT TO INCLUDE ANY SUCH INFORMATION IN OUR CUSTOMER DATABASE. ANY INFORMATION SENT TO US IS GIVEN BY PARENTS OR GUARDIANS AND SERVES THE PURPOSE OUTLINED ON OUR WEBSITE. CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18 MUST BE SIGNED UP BY THEIR PARENTS OR GUARDIAN AND THESE PARENTS OR GUARDIAN MUST PROVIDE THE IDENTIFYING INFORMATION TO US THEREBY IMPLICITY GRANTING Ilecy PERMISSION TO COLLECT SUCH INFORMATION.
