What personal data we collect and why we collect it


Information Collection, Use, and Sharing 

We may ask you for personal information such as your email address, name, phone number or other information in regard to providing or offering our services. We will use your information to respond to your inquiries or in response to the reason you contacted us, to fulfill an order, to send you information or offers based on your search and interests, or to improve the user experience and our services to you.


Unless you ask us not to, we may contact you via email, mail, etc. in the future to tell you about specials, new products or services, or changes to this privacy policy. 


If you visit our page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Your Access to and Control Over Information

You may opt out of any future contacts from us at any time. You can do the following at any time by contacting us via the email address or phone number provided on our websites or at the end of this policy:

  • See what data we have about you, if any.
  • Change/correct any data we have about you.
  • Have us delete any data we have about you.
  • Express any concern you have about our use of your data


We request information from you during the ordering process for our products and services. To buy from us or enlist our services, you must provide contact information (like name and shipping address) and financial information (like credit card number, expiration date if paying via credit card). This information is used for billing purposes and to fill your orders. If we have trouble processing an order, we’ll use this information to contact you. Please do not email credit card information as we cannot control the security of those means.

Service Providers

We use third party services to assist us in providing our Services, to help us collect and analyze data on our websites, or to provide a service on our behalf.


We may use an outside shipping company to ship orders and a credit card processing company to bill users for goods and services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any secondary purposes beyond filling your order.


We may partner with another party to provide specific services. When the user signs up for these services, we will share names, or other contact information that is necessary for the third party to provide these services. These parties are not allowed to use personally identifiable information except for the purpose of providing these services.


We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline.

Wherever we collect personal information that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a closed lock icon at the bottom of your web browser or looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the web page.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (e.g. billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

Cookies and Log Data

We use “cookies” on this site. A cookie is a piece of data stored on a site visitor’s hard drive to help us improve your access to our site and identify repeat visitors to our site. For instance, cookies remember you so that you don’t have to log in a password more than once if you have passwords saved. Cookies can enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our site. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information on our site.

Some of our business partners may use cookies on our site (e.g. programs used for analytics and lead generation). However, we have no access to or control over these cookies. These third-party services like Google Analytics have their own privacy policies.

These services may also collect “Log Data” such as the browser you use, what pages you visit on our sites, your Internet Protocol (IP) address, and other statistics.

If you would like to opt out, you can easily do so through the browsers that you use. You can change your settings to refuse all cookies or only accept them on certain sites. You can also enable the Do Not Track option in your browser’s settings to notify sites that you do not want to be tracked. Another option is to use browsers that have these privacy settings already enabled.

Children’s Policy

Our services are generally only utilized by those 18 and older. Anyone younger than 18 is not within our target demographics for our products and services.

We do not knowingly collect information on anyone younger than 13 years. If your child has provided us with personal information, please contact us and that information will be removed from our files. If we have knowledge that any information we have belongs to a minor, that information will be removed as soon as we are aware of it.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

This policy is in effect as of January 2021. We reserve the right to update or change this policy as needed at any time, so it is a good idea to read this policy or note any changes. In order to keep you aware of further changes, we will notify you by placing a notification on our websites or notify you via the email you provided.

Your use and continued use of our Services will represent your consent to this Privacy Policy and any updates or changes to it.

Other Provisions as Required by Law

We do our best to make sure we are current with the privacy policies and regulations, as new things are added all the time.

If you feel that we are not abiding by this privacy policy or see where this policy needs updating or revision, you should contact us immediately via telephone at 815-223-7904 or via email at


Your privacy is critically important to us. At 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA (“2022 Illinois Valley YMCA“, “we“, “us“, “our“), we have a few fundamental principles:

  • We don’t ask you for personal information unless we truly need it. (We can’t stand services that ask you for things like your gender or income level for no apparent reason.)
  • We don’t share your personal information with anyone except to comply with the law, develop or operate our products or services, or protect our rights.
  • We don’t store personal information on our servers or the offsite servers of the third-party service providers we use to provide our core services unless required for the on-going operation of one of our services.
  • In our social networking and mobile application products, we aim to make it as simple as possible for you to control what is visible to the public, seen by search engines, kept private, and permanently deleted.

Below is our privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) which incorporates these goals:

2022 Illinois Valley YMCA operates a mobile application (the “Application”). It is 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA’s policy to respect the privacy of the Application’s users (“you“, “your“) regarding any information collected through the Application.

Non-Personally-Identifying Information

2022 Illinois Valley YMCA collects, or may have a third-party service providers collect, non-personally-identifying information of the sort that mobile applications typically make available, such as the type of device using the Application, the operating system, location information, and aggregated user statistics. For instance, 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA may monitor the most popular features of the Application. 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA’s purpose in collecting non-personally-identifying information is to better understand how users utilize the Application. From time to time, 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing or disclosing to third parties a report on trends in the usage of the Application or of mobile applications including the Application.

Personally-Identifying Information

Certain users of the Application choose to interact with 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA in ways that require 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA gathers depends on the nature of the interaction. For example, we ask users who log in to a social network through the Application to provide a username and an email address. Those who engage in transactions with 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA are asked to provide additional personally-identifying information, including, as necessary, their first and last name, physical address, telephone number, and additional data such as financial information required to process those transactions. In each case, 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA collects such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the user interaction with 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA. 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA does not share personally-identifying information other than as described below. Users can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Application-related activities. 

Sharing of Personally-Identifying Information

2022 Illinois Valley YMCA shares personally-identifying information only with those of its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know that information in order to process it on 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA’s behalf or to provide services available through the Application, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. For instance, 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA uses third-party vendors and hosting partners to provide the necessary hardware, software, networking, data storage, and related technology required to run the services available through the Application. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country. 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to its employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA discloses personally-identifying information only when required to do so by law, or when 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA believes in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect the property or rights of 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA, third parties or the public at large.

Use of Email Addresses and Push Notifications

If you have supplied your email address as part of your use of the Application, 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA may, subject to the applicable law, occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what is going on with 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA and our products. We primarily use our various product blogs to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum.

With your consent, 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA may also send push notifications or alerts to the device you use to access the Application. Such notifications can reach you even when you are not logged in to the Application or the Application is not running on your device. 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA uses push notifications to send you messages related to the services provided through the Application or to make available to you general information regarding 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA and its products. You can deactivate push notifications in the settings of the Application or of your device at any time.

Protection of Information

2022 Illinois Valley YMCA takes all measures reasonably necessary to protect your personally identifiable information against unauthorized access, use, alteration, loss, or destruction.


A cookie is a string of information that a web server stores on a user’s computer or other device, and that the user’s device provides back to the web server each time the user returns. 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA uses cookies as part of the Application to remember your user preferences and make available to you the services provided through the Application.

Do-Not-Track Disclosures

Neither 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA nor any third party engages in the collection of personally-identifiable information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services when you are accessing or using the Application. For this reason, the Application does not respond to “Do Not Track” signals or other mechanisms providing you the ability to exercise choice regarding the collection of such information.

Age Limitation

The Application is not directed and should not be available to children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect any kind of personal information from children under 13 years of age. If you are under the age of 13, do not use the Application or otherwise provide us with personal information. If we become aware that such information has been collected, we will immediately delete such information. If any parent or guardian learns or otherwise becomes aware of a child under 13 years of age using the Application or otherwise providing personal information to us, please contact us.

Privacy Policy Changes

Changes to the Privacy Policy will be effective as of the date we post the revised version on this page or make it otherwise accessible through the Application as a notification and will apply only to our collection, use and sharing of information after such date. 2022 Illinois Valley YMCA encourages users to frequently check this page for any changes to its Privacy Policy.
