The collection and means of collecting information through any currently existing or future App are previously discussed in this policy. The sharing of any information is also previously discussed in this policy.

In addition, by using the App you may be asked for permission to access data on your mobile device, such as photos. We will only access this data with your consent. Please note that some functions of the App are only available if you allow access to requested content.

You can opt-out of certain functions of the App by changing the settings on your mobile device. For specific instructions, please refer to the instructions provided for your mobile device.

Data Security and Credit Card Safety

Protecting the safety of your credit card information is important to us. We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to help protect the security of your credit card information as it is transmitted to us. SSL is a highly sophisticated method of scrambling data as it travels from your computer to our Sites' servers.

To make sure you are accessing our secure server before you submit personal financial information, look at the lower left-hand corner of your Web browser. If you see an unbroken key or a closed lock (depending upon your browser), then SSL is active. To double-check for security, look at the URL or “Address” line of your Web browser. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from "http" to "https".

We use industry-standard security techniques on the Sites to help protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information collected from you on the Sites. When you access your account information or transmit personally identifiable data to the Sites, that information is stored on servers that the Sites has attempted to secure from unauthorized access or intrusion. That said, no data transmission over the Internet or other network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect information transmitted on or through the Sites, we cannot and do not guarantee the security of any information you transmit on or through the Sites, and you do so at your own risk.

Service Providers

From time to time, we may contract with other businesses whom we believe to be trustworthy and who have confirmed that their privacy practices are consistent with ours to perform services for or on behalf of Tillys (“Service Providers”). For example, we may contract with Service Providers to provide certain services, such as hosting and maintenance, data storage and management, and marketing and promotions. Some of our Service Providers may use their own cookies or other tracking technology in connection with the services they perform on our behalf. We only provide our Service Providers with the information necessary for them to perform these services on our behalf. Each Service Provider must agree to use reasonable security procedures and practices, appropriate to the nature of the information involved, in order to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Service Providers are prohibited from using personal information other than as specified by Tillys.

Advertising & Do Not Track

These companies may use browsing information (e.g., click stream information, Web browser type, time and date, subject of advertisements clicked or scrolled over) during your visits to the Sites and other web sites in order to provide advertisements about products and services likely to be of interest to you. These companies typically use a cookie or other technology to collect this information.

Our systems do not recognize Do Not Track (DNT) signals from browsers. DNT is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers, allowing users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. However, many third-party services that collect this type of information permit you to opt out through a separate system. To learn more about this behavioral advertising practice or to opt-out of this type of advertising from participating third parties’ providers, you can visit http://www.networkadvertising.org .
