IP addresses are automatically reported by your browser each time you view a web page. Your IP address is stored in Lilter's user registration databases when you register with Lilter. IP addresses may be used for various research purposes.

Service-related Announcements

Lilter will send you a welcome/confirmation email when you sign up for Lilter's services. Receipt of this email is required for using Lilter's services.

Lilter will send you service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so.

You may not opt-out of service-related communications, which are not promotional in nature. If you do not wish to receive them, you have the option to deactivate your account by emailing support@Lilter.com from the email address you signed up with.

Administrative Messages

Lilter may periodically email you with administrative messages. Lilter will not sell or rent your personal information to third parties for their marketing purposes without your explicit consent. Your information may be combined with information Lilter collects from other companies and used to improve and personalize services, content and advertising. If you don't wish to receive administrative messages or participate in these programs, simply opt-out by emailing support@Lilter.com.

Newsletter Emails

Lilter offers subscriptions to Lilter email newsletters. To opt-in, Lilter will ask for your email address and the newsletter(s) you wish to receive. This email address will only be used for this feature. You may change your subscription or unsubscribe at anytime by following the instructions contained in the email.

Friend Features

"Tell a Friend" allows members to share information about a specific item listed on Lilter by sending a personalized email message. If you choose to use Lilter's "Tell a Friend" feature, Lilter will ask for the information needed to send the message, such as your friend's email address. Lilter will then automatically send your friend an email, inviting your friend to visit the site. Lilter does not store "Tell a Friend" information on our servers. Your friend may utilize the "unsubscribe" link in the email to opt-out of receiving future "Tell a Friend" emails from Lilter.

We utilize a contact-importer feature to help you identify people from your email address books who are current members of Lilter and invite any other contact to join Lilter. You may connect directly with your email service provider and import your contacts to Lilter. When you add contacts to your Lilter circle, they will automatically receive an email notification. When you invite contacts to join Lilter, you may preview the email invitation before Lilter generates and sends it. Recipients of invitations may opt out of receiving future invitations via a convenient link located in the invitation email. If you do not want your contacts to be able to find your Lilter username through your email address, you may opt out through your account privacy settings.


If you no longer wish to receive administrative messages, you may opt-out by emailing support@Lilter.com. Please note that if you do not wish to receive administrative messages from us, those notices will still govern your use of the Lilter website and service, and you are responsible for reviewing such notices for changes.


A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier, that is sent to your browser from a web site's computers and stored on your computer's hard drive. You can configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use Lilter products or services that require you to "sign in," and you may not be able to take full advantage of the Lilter service. Lilter uses its own cookies for a number of purposes, including to: Access your information when you "sign in"; keep track of preferences you specify while you are using Lilter's services; display the most appropriate advertising banners, based on your interests and activity on Lilter; estimate and report Lilter's total audience size and traffic; conduct research to improve Lilter's content and services. Lilter cookies do not collect personal information, and Lilter does not combine information collected through cookies with other personal information to tell us who you are or what your username or email address is.

Tracking Technologies

We employ a software technology called clear gifs (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to your personally identifiable information. The use of cookies by our third party tracking partners is not covered by our privacy statement. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Our partners use session ID cookies to support our site functionality such as web analytics reporting.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

When you post a message, your Lilter ID or alias is visible to other users. If you post personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from other parties in return. Lilter may be required to disclose personally identifiable information under special circumstances, such as to comply with subpoenas or when your actions violate the Lilter Terms of Use. Lilter may disclose personally identifiable information to parties in compliance with Lilter's Copyright and Intellectual Property Policy, as Lilter in Lilter's sole discretion believes necessary or appropriate in connection with an investigation of fraud, intellectual property infringement, piracy, or other unlawful activity. In such events, Lilter may disclose name, street address, city, state, zip code, country, phone number, email address and company name. Lilter may share aggregated demographic information with business partners.

Lilter is affiliated with a variety of businesses and works closely with them. These businesses may operate stores on the Lilter website or sell items to you from the Lilter website. Lilter may also provide services or sell products jointly with affiliated businesses. Due to the nature of Lilter's business model, when an affiliated business is associated with your transaction, you will share customer information that is related to such transaction with that affiliated business.

Lilter employs other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and needs to share your information with them to provide products and services to you. Examples include but are not limited to fulfilling orders, handling billing disputes and collections, analyzing data, providing marketing assistance and providing customer service.

Lilter will not rent, sell, or share personal information about you with nonaffiliated parties except as specified in this Privacy Policy to provide products or services you have requested or when Lilter has your permission. It may be necessary to share information in order to investigate, prevent, or take action regarding illegal activities, suspected fraud, situations involving potential threats to the physical safety of any person, violations of Lilter's Terms of Use, as specified in this Privacy Policy or as otherwise required by law. In some cases, Lilter may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that is transferred. Lilter will transfer information about you if Lilter is acquired by or merged with another company. In this event, Lilter will notify you by email or by putting a prominent notice on the Lilter web site before information about you is transferred and becomes subject to a different privacy policy.

As part of the buying and selling process, you may obtain another Lilter user's email address, shipping address and/or other information. Pursuant to Lilter's Terms of Use, you have a limited license to use this information. This information should only be used for Lilter-related communications or for Lilter-facilitated transactions. Lilter has not granted you a license to use the information for unsolicited commercial messages. Without limiting the foregoing, without express consent from the user, you are not licensed to add any Lilter user to your email or physical mail list.

Without limiting the above, in an effort to respect your privacy and Lilter's ability to keep the community free from bad actors, Lilter will not otherwise disclose your personal information to law enforcement, other government officials, or other third parties without a subpoena, court order, legal process, or substantially similar legal procedure, except when Lilter believes in good faith that the disclosure of information is necessary to protect Lilter's rights, prevent imminent physical harm or financial loss, or to report suspected illegal activity.


If you use a forum on this site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by others or could be used to send you unsolicited messages. Lilter is not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in these forums.

Third Parties

Except as otherwise expressly included in this Privacy Policy, this document addresses only the use and disclosure of information Lilter collects from you. If you disclose your information to others, whether they are buyers or sellers on Lilter or throughout the internet, different rules may apply to their use or disclosure of the information you disclose to them. Lilter does not control the privacy policies of third parties, and you are subject to the privacy policies of those third parties where applicable. Lilter is not responsible for the privacy or security practices of other websites on the Internet, even those linked to or from the Lilter site. Lilter encourages you to ask questions before you disclose your personal information to others.

Editing and Deleting Account Information

You can change your Lilter Account Information (except your username), at any time. Lilter may send you certain communications relating to the Lilter service, such as service-related announcements and administrative messages that are considered part of your Lilter account. You can delete your Lilter account by emailing support@Lilter.com. Please note that your identification, billing and contact information may remain in Lilter's records for some period.

Lilter limits access to personal information about you to employees who Lilter believes reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you or in order to do their jobs. Your Lilter Account Information is password-protected.

If your personally identifiable information changes you may correct or update it by making the change on Your Lilter Page. You may delete or deactivate your account by emailing Customer Support at support@Lilter.com or by postal mail at the contact information listed below. Lilter will respond to your request within 10-20 business days.


The security of your personal information is important to us. Your Lilter account information is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to work to protect against unauthorized access to your password and to your computer by signing off once you have finished using a shared computer. When you enter sensitive information (such as credit card number) for registration Lilter encrypts that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). Lilter follows generally accepted industry standards to protect the personal information submitted to us, both during transmission and once Lilter receives it. No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, while Lilter strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, Lilter cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on Lilter's Web site, you can email Lilter at support@Lilter.com.

Lilter reserves the right to modify this privacy statement at any time, so please review it frequently.
