Terms of Service, Cookie and Privacy
By registering and/or using Ilamusic, you confirm that you have read and accepted the terms of service, privacy information and cookie information contained on this page.
Collection and use of personal data
Personal data is data that can be used, directly or indirectly, to identify a person. Ilamusic collects some personal data provided through the registration form, through the page “My Profile and Preferences” and in general through the use of the site. In detail, Ilamusic collects:
Data provided at registration: username (which can be a nickname or real name), password, e-mail, sex (man or woman).
Optional data added via the Preferences page: date of birth, province of residence, country of residence, occupation, website, facebook page, twitter page, interests, biography.
Other data entered through the use of Ilamusic: camera models and lenses used, technical data (photographic), preferences for using the site (e.g. cookies for choosing the background color, users added between your friends, preferences for how to display pages).
Data recorded automatically: IP addresses, connection times. Third-party services (e.g. visit counters) can also record the operating system, browser, screen resolution and other data of the device used.
How personal data is used
Personal data is used to provide and develop the service (Ilamusic): for example, by registering an account (with username, password, email) it is possible to participate to the forum, to post messages and photos and to use all services offered by Ilamusic.
In addition, the e-mail address is used to notify you of your registration, to communicate any new password if password recovery is used, and to send notifications if the user explicitly chooses to receive notifications for private messages or new replies in discussions or photos. Any notification can be deactivated at any time.
Some data (cameras, lenses, operating system, browser, screen resolution) are used for statistical purposes, to create publicly visible statistics in your profile or on the Statistics page of Ilamusic.
Finally, some data (IP addresses) are recorded for security reasons, to verify the accounts, minimize duplicate registrations, disturbers, trolls, and to maintain the maximum possible security on Ilamusic.
All personal data you enter on Ilamusic are publicly visible, with the exception of e-mail, password and IP, because the only purpose to enter the optional data of the profile is to share them with the public by completing the profile only with the information you want explicitly to show. Do not enter information that you do not want to disclose!
All photos, avatars, profile pictures are publicly visible. All messages, posts, topics, buy/sell announcements are publicly visible, with the exception of private messages. Private messages are only visible to the author of the message and to the recipient of the message, and for security reasons they are automatically deleted after three months (it is also possible to delete them manually at any time).
The data are used for the purposes described here and are stored, as safely as possible, without time limits (data are deleted only if requested by the user). The data are processed within the European Union, and specifically in Italy.
You have the right to access, correct or delete your personal data. You can view, edit or delete your data via the Preferences page; other contents you have uploaded (e.g. photos) can be deleted via the relative pages (galleries). You can cancel the entire account, including all photos posted, by contacting the administrator at the email firstname.lastname@example.org.
You can request a copy of your data (data portability); in addition, you can download a copy of all your photos uploaded via the Photo Recovery page. You have the right to submit complaints to the supervisory authority. Requests regarding personal data and privacy sent to Ilamusic will be answered within a reasonable time (usually 3-4 days, and in any case no later than 30 days).
Ilamusic will communicate any data breach that may cause risks for the rights and the freedom of those involved to the control authority, as well as those directly involved, in accordance with the law. However, Ilamusic is structured in such a way as to reduce risks and make such data breaches as ineffective as possible, by adopting various measures:
1) Ilamusic collects only the data necessary for the operation of the site and a large part of this data is information that the user explicitly chooses to share with everyone; a good part of this data (username, gender, province, equipment, interests and other data inserted in the profile) are already publicly visible, so it would not make sense to ‘steal’ information already publicly available.
2) Private data (e-mail, password, IP, private messages) are stored with the utmost caution (encryption is used for the most sensitive data); private messages are totally removed from the database after three months or when the user deletes them.

Rules of Conduct
It is essential to be friendly and polite. Remember that this forum has members from all around the world, with different traditions and cultures: in your messages, try to be clear and to avoid expressions that may result offensive to someone.
If you notice an incorrect behavior, you can report this by clicking on the button [!] in the upper right of each message. Never respond to any provocations, and avoid by all means that the discussions degenerate: if others make mistakes, do not respond in the same way, but try to give a good example. You can also block someone from commenting on your photos by clicking on the [x] button or on “Block User” in the messages of the user that you want to block and ignore.
Never write in CAPITAL LETTERS, nor within messages, nor in the titles. The titles must be as representative as possible of the content. For example, if you are unsure in choosing a lens, do not use a title as “Help! I do not know what to do!” but “Is it better the lens xxx or yyy?”.
On the forum you can speak freely of resellers and prices; users (provided they are not retailers or shops) can post links to commercial activities, to report very best deals or to compare prices. Retailers can not post links to their site nor advertise their products. Retailers can participate in the forum to clarify any doubts or misunderstandings, and to answer questions that concern them.
It is forbidden to advertise workshops, paid tours, photo contests and other paid activities.
It is forbidden to publish opinions or “reviews” of products for which you have received a fee, in the form of money, voucher, discount code. The opinions published on the forum must be honest and objective, they must not be paid, otherwise they will be considered as advertising and canceled.

It is forbidden to use the forum for complaint discussions, both against the Ilamusic staff or against other users.

All images are copyright of their respective authors. Each user can only upload photos he took personally.
In case of copyright violations (if you find that some user has uploaded your own pictures, claiming to be theirs) contact the administrator to firstname.lastname@example.org ; the photo will be removed as soon as possible.
Each user is responsible for what he writes; the administrator and the moderators are not responsible for what users write.
The content posted by the users may contain links to external websites; it is the duty and responsibility of the author of this content (the user, not the administrator of Ilamusic) to make sure that these links do not lead to illegal sites, porn sites or malicious sites.
Participation Ilamusic is free (except for those who explicitly requires the supporter membership, a paid account with space for 10,000 photos instead of 400 free account picture).
By registering to Ilamusic, you accept to participate for free; you will not get any compensation for participation to Ilamusic.
The Ilamusic staff has the right to block or permanently delete any account at its sole discretion, without notice or notification. It is not possible to ask for compensation for the account deletion or any other compensation.
Only and exclusively in case of deletion of a supporter account (paid), it is possible to request compensation for the fee paid for the account, for the unused days. For example, if a user who paid the supporter account for a year (25 euros) deletes the account after six months, he is entitled to receive a compensation for the unused six months (in this case 12.5 euros). In no case may the compensated amount be higher than the quota corresponding to the unused days or the amount paid.
