When You Register for a Urlty Account
When you create an Account, we may collect personal information from you, such as your name, phone number, company name, industry, job title, company size, email address, and sign-in information. If you create an Account using your login information from a third-party account, such as Google, Facebook, Apple, or Twitter, we will access and collect the personal information about you that the third-party account provides (which is based on your privacy settings with the third-party account), so that you can log into your account with us. We use your contact information to send you information about our Services and communicate with you about your Account, your activities on our Site, and Services and policy changes. You may unsubscribe from receiving certain types of these messages through your Account settings, although Urlty reserves the right to contact you when we believe it is necessary, such as for administrative and account management purposes.

Some features of the Services allow registered users to provide their own content to the Services, such as written descriptions of URLs, comments, images, and video.

When You Create a Urlty Link
One feature of the Services is the ability to create shortened uniform resource locators (URLs) of websites (“Urlty Links” or “Urltys”). Users can create Urlty Links without registering for an account. When you create a Urlty Link, Urlty 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. Urlty also collects and stores your IP address, your geolocation data (which we derive from your IP address), the time and date on which you shortened the original URL, and if you share a Urlty Link on a social networking platform, the name of the platform and your username on that platform.

When You Interact With a Urlty Link
Urlty automatically collects personal information about the interaction (such as clicks or views) with every Urlty Link created through the Services (either our urlty.co links or one of our branded domains) on a third-party website. This information includes, but is not limited to: (i) the IP address and location derived from the IP address; (ii) internet or other electronic network activity information like the referring websites or services; (iii) the time and date of each access; (iv) device settings, such as browser type, operating system, and language; (v) cookies, as described below, and mobile advertising identifiers and (v) information about sharing of the Urlty Link on Third Party Services (collectively, “Urlty Link Metrics”). As described in this policy, we use Urlty Link Metrics to provide the Services, to understand and analyze how our Services are used and to identify trends, and to detect, deter and prevent malicious, fraudulent, or unlawful activity. Please see the “Information We May Share” section of this Privacy Policy for a description of how we may share information we collect when you create, view, or interact with Urlty Links.
