Los Angeles, California 91007 USA
For unresolved issues and under certain limited conditions, EU and Swiss individuals may seek to invoke binding arbitration before the Privacy Shield Panel to be created by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission.
iLux is responsible for the processing of personal data it receives and possible subsequent transfers to a third party acting as an agent on its behalf. iLux complies with the Privacy Shield Principles for all onward transfers of personal data from the EU and Switzerland.
iLux has further committed to cooperate with the panel established by the EU data protection authorities (DPAs) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) with regard to unresolved Privacy Shield complaints concerning data transferred from the EU and Switzerland.
With respect to personal data received or transferred pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, iLux is subject to the regulatory enforcement powers of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. In certain situations, we may be required to disclose personal data in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including but not limited to meeting national security or law enforcement requirements.
WHAT INFORMATION DOES iLUX COLLECT AND HOW IS IT USED?
The information we collect is primarily used to provide the Services, to process and complete any transactions, to respond to inquiries, to personalize and improve the Services, to monitor and analyze usage and trends of the Services, to allow our business partners to understand how you interact with our Services, as described in this Policy. In connection with certain aspects of the Services, we may request, collect and/or display some information about you. We collect the following types of information from our users.
Registered User Information:
When you create an Account, we will collect personal information from you, such as your name, email address, and zip code. If you create an Account using your login from another account or service, such as Facebook or Twitter, we will access and collect the personal information about you that the account provides (which is based on your privacy settings) so that you can create your Account with us. We use your contact information to send you information about our Services. You may unsubscribe from receiving certain types of these messages by unsubscribing from within the message directly or through your Account settings, if available, although iLux reserves the right to contact you when we believe it is necessary, such as for administrative and account management purposes.
Note Regarding Children:
Our Services are intended for individuals over eighteen years of age and therefore do not knowingly collect personal information from children. If we learn that we have collected personal information of a child under 13, we will take steps to delete such information from our files as soon as possible.
One feature of the Services is the ability to create shortened uniform resource locators (URLs) of websites (“LuxuryLink”). When you create a LuxuryLink, iLux collects and stores both the original URL and the shortened URL and, if you are logged in to your Account, we will associate that information with your Account. iLux also collects and stores your IP address, the time and date on which you shortened the original URL, and when you share the LuxuryLink and information on the channels through which the LuxuryLink was shared.
Metrics and Analytics:
iLux collects information about accesses and uses (such as clicks) of the Services. This information includes, but is not limited to: (i) the IP address and physical location of the devices accessing; (ii) the referring websites or services; (iii) the time and date of each access; (iv) specific Services accessed; and (v) information about sharing on Third Party Services such as Twitter and Facebook. This information is used by iLux and its partners to improve their websites and services by, for example, providing value-added features, and to analyze clicks on Services, for example to understand how, when and where iLux Services are used.
Information Collected From Third Party Services:
Some features of the Services allow you to share Services, your content, and LuxuryLinks through your accounts with other companies such as Facebook and Instagram. If you choose to share to or connect iLux Services to such Third Party Services, we may collect information related to your use of those Third Party Services, such as authentication tokens that allow us to connect to your Third Party Service accounts. We will ask you for permission before you authorize our collection of this information. We will only use that information for the specific reason for which it was provided to us. We may also collect information about how you are using the Services to interact with those connected Third Party Services. Note that Third Party Services may have the ability to restrict the information that is provided to us based on your privacy settings of that account.
Information Collected Automatically:
iLux automatically receives and records information from your web browser when you interact with the Services (including creating or clicking on LuxuryLinks), such as your IP address, browser type, your general location and cookie information. iLux may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure. This information may be used to help us understand how users transit a website, to fight spam/malware, to facilitate collection of data concerning your interaction with the Services and for other similar purposes.
iLux also automatically receives and records information that your mobile device transmits when you access the Services, like a device identifier, device settings, and operating system. This information is used to facilitate your access and use of the Services, to access and use other Third Party Services, and for other similar purposes.
Generally, the Services automatically collect Site usage information, such as the number and frequency of visitors to the Site. iLux may use this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure. This type of aggregate data enables us and third parties authorized by us to figure out how often individuals use parts of the Site so that we can analyze and improve them.
We will collect information about your general location (such as your city and state, which is derived from your IP address) when you visit the Site or use the Services, such as by clicking a LuxuryLink, and we may use various technologies to determine your location (if you enable this feature), when you access and use the Services through a mobile device.
We may collect information when you open and interact with an email from us. We use this information to understand how you use our Services and Sites, to improve Services, and Site experience.
LuxuryLink cookies also allow iLux to track when you have clicked on a LuxuryLink. Each click of a LuxuryLink is tracked using a unique identifier assigned to you in one or more cookies stored by your web browser and associated with iLux. We may associate the unique identifier in our cookies with the other information we automatically collect when you use the Services, as described above, including your IP address, LuxuryLinks you click, LuxuryLinks you create, and information with your Account if you have one.
Most browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. If you disable cookies, you will not be able to use some features of the Services. iLux cookies are set to automatically expire after twelve months from when they are set. When cookies are disabled in this manner, clicks are not tied back to or associated with your web browser. However, we will still automatically collect the IP addresses of computers or mobile devices that click on or create LuxuryLinks.
If you are accessing Services from specific locations, such as the European Union (“EU”), you can also manage our and other companies’ cookies used for online advertising in the Cookie Notification and Consent Form (“Cookie Consent Form”) that may appear at the top of our Sites on your first visit to an iLux Network Site.
Your consent to use or not us cookies, obtained on the first page view of an iLux Site will constitute Network wide consent and be persistent on all other Sites in the Network, which include https://Discover.Luxury, https://Travel.Luxury, https://Fashion.Luxury, https://RealEstate.Luxury, https://Design.Luxury, https://Join.Luxury, https://Search.Luxury, and https://On.Luxury. To review or change your cookie preferences at any time and regardless location, you can use this link to Change your Consent by redisplaying the Cookie Consent Form. Alternatively you can, through your web browser, delete the stored cookies forcing the Cookie Consent Form to display on your next pageview.
WHAT INFORMATION IS SHARED?
We may share the information we collect as described in this policy with third-party business partners, for instance, for the purpose of enhancing our products and services, so that they can market their products or services to you, or so that they may analyze trends about the creation, the share of, and clicks on, LuxuryLinks. The LuxuryLink Services is designed to help you discover share information with others. As a result, much of the information generated through the Services is shared publicly or with third parties. If you do not want us to share your personal information with these companies, contact us at Privacy@Discover.Luxury.
LuxuryLinks and Usage Information:
Much of your activity on and through the LuxuryLink Services is public by default. This includes, but is not limited to the original URLs you have shortened, their corresponding LuxuryLink, the time and date those URLs were shortened, and metrics and analytics information for your LuxuryLinks, as described above; Information about what LuxuryLinks you have clicked on and associated metrics and analytics information, as described above; and
any customized LuxuryLinks you have created, along with content added to those links.
For registered users, some of this information is publicly accessible through a unique URL. Not sharing the LuxuryLink’s unique URL does not make this information non-public and it may still be accessible.
Please also remember that if you choose to provide information about yourself using certain features of the Services, then that information is governed by the privacy settings of those particular features and may be publicly available to others.
Information Disclosed Pursuant to Business Transfers:
We may transfer and/or provide information about our users in connection with an acquisition, sale of company assets, or other situation where user information would be transferred as one of our business assets. You will be notified via email when possible and/or a prominent notice on our site, of any change in ownership, uses of your personal information, and choices you may have regarding your personal information.
In such a case, the acquirer of iLux may continue to use your information as set forth in this policy.
Information Disclosed for the Protection of iLux and Others:
iLux may access, read, preserve, and disclose any information it collects when it has a good faith belief that doing so is reasonably necessary to (i) comply with a law, regulation, or compulsory legal request, including process from a governmental law enforcement or national security agency (ii) enforce these Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations hereof, (iii) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, (iv) respond to user support requests, or (v) protect the rights, property or safety of iLux, its users and the public. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and spam/malware prevention.
Information We Share With Your Consent:
We will share information about you when you instruct us to do so, such as when you share LuxuryLinks or content with others through the Services or if we notify you that the information you provide will be shared in a particular manner and you provide such information (like sharing/posting it with a Third Party Service).
HOW IS MY INFORMATION PROTECTED?
Your Account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You can prevent unauthorized access to your account by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account.
iLux endeavors to protect the information it collects about its users using industry-standard security processes and controls, however, despite these efforts, no security measure is perfect or impenetrable and iLux does not guarantee or warrant that such measures will prevent unauthorized access to the information about you that is stored by iLux. In the event we experience a breach of security, we will promptly notify you if your personal information has been compromised, in accordance with applicable law. If you have any questions about the security of your personal information, you can contact us at Privacy@Discover.Luxury.
WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE AND WHAT INFORMATION OF MINE CAN I ACCESS?
You don’t need an account to create LuxuryLinks and you can use many of the features of the Services without registering, thereby limiting the type of information that is collected about you individually.
Upon request, iLux will provide you with information about whether we hold any of your personal information. In order to identify you, we may need to request additional information from you in order to respond to your request. You may access, correct, or request deletion of your personal information by contacting us at Privacy@Discvoer.Luxury. We will respond to your request within a reasonable timeframe. In certain circumstances we may be required by law to retain your personal information, or may need to retain your personal information in order to continue providing a service.
If you are a registered user, you can access information associated with your Account by logging into the Site. This information includes a history of the URLs you have shortened, and access to the metrics pages for those URLs. You can deactivate your Account by emailing Support@Discover.Luxury. If you deactivate your Account, you will no longer be able to access or use the Services and any LuxuryLinks you created may no longer function.
If you have concerns about any unauthorized usage of your Account, please contact us at Support@Discover.Luxury.
