The full story of how iStock/Getty Images sells photos of its contributors can be found on Microstockgroup here:

I'll add the following.
It's been quite a while since I cancelled my contract with iStock/Getty Images
But since at least one of their "partner sites" was still selling or is selling my portfolio on, I sent a ticket to iStock, 12/22/2021.
iStock promised to address this, specifically here:
2/19/2022 6:40:16 AM
I have relayed this message to our partner team and I am waiting for a reconfirmation of removal of your files. Looking forward to touching base with you soon, Claudette

Ticket was closed by Getty on 3/20/2022 with no reply.
Neither Claudette nor anyone else at Getty has confirmed that my portfolio was indeed subsequently withdrawn.
It is likely that this iStock/Getty Images activity is still continuing.
The proceeds from the secretly sold and freely given away photographs from my portfolio have been retained by iStock/Getty and are likely to continue to be retained by them.
