Privacy Policy

PRIVACY POLICY

Illinois Preps Insider (“we”, “us” “our” and “ILPrep”) respects the privacy of its users.  As a result, we have developed this Privacy Policy to describe to you our use of your Personal Information.  The terms “you” or “your” means a user of the ILPrep website located at www.ilprepsinsider.com (the “Websites”).  The term “Personal Information” means information which personally identifies you, such as your name, phone number, email address, social security number, and any other data that is tied to such information.  This Privacy Policy applies to your use of the Websites, but not does apply to any third-party sites that may be linked to them, or any businesses listed on the Websites.

Your use of the Websites means that you agree to be bound by the terms of this Privacy Policy, which has been incorporated into our Terms of Service, which are located at www.ilprepsinsider.com/terms-of-service.  By using the Websites, you expressly consent to our using your Personal Information according to this Privacy Policy.  If you do not agree with these terms, please do not use the Websites.

Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

We are in compliance with the requirements of COPPA (Childrens Online Privacy Protection Act); we do not collect any information from anyone under 13 years of age. The Websites, products and services are all directed to people who are at least 13 years old or older.  If we obtain actual knowledge that a user is under the age of 13, we will remove that user’s information from our databases.  Although we do not request or accept information from you, if you are between the ages of 13 and 18 and you attempt to send any information to us, you must obtain your parent’s permission before transmitting information to us over the internet.  By using the Websites, you are warranting and representing to us that you are over the age of 18, and if you are between the ages of 13 and 18, you have your parent’s permission to use the Websites.  

Information We Collect and How We Use It

We use commercially reasonable efforts to ensure that the collection of Personal Information is limited to that which is necessary to fulfill the purposes identified below.  If we use your information in a manner different than the purpose for which it is collected, we will ask you for your consent prior to such use.

Information About You.  We do not allow anyone to set up an account.  We only collect information to track the locations from which users access our Websites to analyze and interpret traffic to our site.  

Feedback. If you contact us to provide feedback or ask a question, we will record any Personal Information and other content that you provide in your communication so that we can effectively respond to your communication.

Log Files.  Any time you visit any of the Websites, our servers automatically gather information from your browser (such as your IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, platform type, date/time stamp, and number of clicks) to analyze trends, administer the site, prevent fraud, track visitor movement in the aggregate, and gather broad demographic information.  For example, we may log your IP address for system administration purposes.  IP addresses are logged to track a user’s session.  This gives us an idea of which parts of our site users are visiting.  We do not share the log files externally.

Cookies. We may cookies to your computer in order to uniquely identify your browser and improve the quality of our service.  The term “cookies” refers to small pieces of information that a website sends to your computer’s hard drive while you are viewing the site.  We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). Persistent cookies can be removed by following your browser help file directions.  If you choose to disable cookies, some areas of the Websites may not work properly or at all.

E-mails.  We may require an e-mail address from you if you request information from us.  We may use your e-mail for promotional (e.g., newsletters, new product offerings, special discounts, event notifications, special third-party offers) purposes.  E-mail messages we send you may contain code that enables our database to track your usage of the e-mails, including whether the e-mail was opened and what links (if any) were clicked.  If you would rather not receive promotional e-mails from us, please see the section below labeled “Emails and Opt-Out”.  We reserve the right to send you certain communications relating to our services, such as service announcements and administrative messages, and transactional messages about any orders that you place, without offering you the opportunity to opt-out of receiving them.

Enforcement. We may use the information we collect in connection with your use of the Websites (including your Personal Information) in order to investigate, enforce, and apply our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy.

Transfer of Information

We may share your Personal Information with third-parties to conduct quality assurance testing,  provide technical and customer support, or provide specific services, such as synchronization of your contacts with other software applications, in accordance with your instructions. These third-parties are required not to use your Personal Information other than to provide the services requested by you.

We may disclose your Personal Information to third-parties in a good faith belief that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) take action regarding suspected illegal activities; (b) enforce or apply our Terms of Service and Privacy Policy; (c) comply with legal process, such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute, or court order; or (d) protect our rights, reputation, and property, or that of our users, affiliates, or the public.  Please note that we are not required to question or contest the validity of any search warrant, subpoena or other similar governmental request that we receive.  We will, however, notify you in the event we receive a subpoena or other governmental request so that you may, at your expense, take such action you deem appropriate.

We may disclose information in the aggregate to third-parties relating to user behavior in connection with actual or prospective business relationships with those third-parties, such as advertisers and content distributors, but no individual information will be disclosed along with such aggregated information. For example, we may disclose the number of users that have been exposed to, or clicked on, advertising banners.

We may use third-party advertising companies to serve ads when you visit the Websites. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address, or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services of interest to you. These companies may employ cookies and web beacons to measure advertising effectiveness.  

Notwithstanding any other provision of this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Service, we reserve the right, but have no obligation, to disclose any information that you submit to the services, if in our sole opinion, we suspect or have reason to suspect, that the information involves a party who may be the victim of abuse in any form. Abuse may include, without limitation, elder abuse, child abuse, spousal abuse, neglect, or domestic violence.  Information may be disclosed to authorities that we, in our sole discretion, deem appropriate to handle such disclosure. Appropriate authorities may include, without limitation, law enforcement agencies, child protection agencies, or court officials. You hereby acknowledge and agree that we are permitted to make such disclosure.

Links

The Websites may contain advertisements or other content that link to third-party websites to which we have no affiliation. Except as set forth herein, we do not share your Personal Information with those third-parties, and are not responsible for their privacy practices.  We suggest you read the privacy policies on all such third-party websites before providing any information on such websites.

Some of the advertisements on the ILPrep Websites may be served by Google.  Google may use cookies to serve ads to users based on their visit to our Website and other sites on the Internet.  You should review Google’s privacy policy and terms and conditions for its use of any information collected.  We are not responsible for, nor do we have any control over Google’s use of any information collected.  

Emails and Opt-out

You may opt-out of receiving promotional notifications from us via email by contacting us at ilprepsinsider@gmail.com. We will take commercially reasonable efforts to remove you from our solicitation list.  Unregistered users who receive e-mails from us may also opt-out of receiving further e-mails by following the instructions contained in our e-mails, or by contacting us at (773) 633-6188 to be removed from solicitations.

Despite your indicated e-mail preferences, we may send you notices of any updates to our Terms and Conditions of Service or Privacy Policy, or emails that relate to any information you have requested.  If you do not permit us to contact you via email for these purposes, then you are not permitted to use the services of our Website.

Terms and Modifications to this Privacy Policy

We may modify this Privacy Policy at any time, and we will post any new versions on this page. If we make any material changes in the way we use your Personal Information, we will notify you by sending an e-mail to the last e-mail address you provided to us and/or by prominently posting notice of the changes on the Websites.  Any such changes will be effective upon posting on our site, or upon email to you, whichever is first.  Please note that at all times you are responsible for updating your Personal Information to provide us with your most current e-mail address.  In the event that the last e-mail you have provided us is not valid, or for any reason is not capable of delivering to you the notice described above, our dispatch of the e-mail containing such notice will nonetheless constitute effective notice of the changes described in the notice.  In any event, changes to this Privacy Policy may affect our use of Personal Information that you provided us prior to our notification to you of the changes.  If you do not wish to permit changes in our use of your Personal Information, you must notify us prior to the effective date of the changes that you wish to deactivate your account with us.  Continued use of the Websites following notice of such changes shall indicate your acknowledgement of such changes and agreement to be bound by the terms and conditions of such changes.
