Privacy and cookies
For more information about our privacy practices, below we set out what types of personal data we might collect or hold about you, how we use it, who we share it with, how we protect it and keep it secure, and your rights around your personal data.
WHAT IS PERSONAL DATA? (GDPR)
“Personal data” means any information or pieces of information that could identify you either directly (e.g. your name) or indirectly (e.g. through pseudonymised data, such as a unique ID number). This means that personal data includes things like email/home addresses, usernames, profile pictures, personal preferences and shopping habits, user generated content, financial information, and health information. It could also include unique numerical identifiers like your computer’s IP address or your mobile device’s MAC address, as well as cookies.
GDPR – what is it?
The GDPR or General Data Protection Regulation is the name of the regulation on the protection of private individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free flow of such data (hereinafter “GDPR”).
The GDPR aims to protect the privacy of private individuals in the European Union (EU) as well as harmonise the laws of the European countries. The European Parliament adopted the Regulation on 27 April 2016.
The GDPR does not prohibited to receive and process personal data, but defines the principles for the processing, storage and deletion of data.
Your personal data may also be processed on our behalf by our trusted third party suppliers.
We rely on trusted third parties to perform a range of business operations on our behalf. We only provide them with the information they need to perform the service, and we require that they do not use your personal data for any other purpose. We will always use our best efforts to make sure that all third parties we work with will keep your personal data secure. Examples include:
• Advertising, marketing, digital and social media agencies to help us to deliver advertising, marketing, and campaigns, to analyse their effectiveness, and to manage your contact and questions;
• Third parties required to deliver a product to you e.g. postal/delivery services;
• Third parties that assist and help us in providing IT services, such as Shopify
• Payment service providers and credit reference agencies for the purpose of assessing your credit score and verifying your details where this is a condition of entering into a contract with you
• Third parties that assist us for customer care and cosmetovigilance purposes.
IS MY PERSONAL DATA SECURE?
We are committed to keeping your personal data secure, and taking all reasonable precautions to do so. We contractually require that trusted third parties who handle your personal data for us do the same.
We always do our best to protect your personal data and once we have received your personal data, we use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. As no transmission of information via the internet is completely secure, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal data transmitted to our site although. Any transmission is therefore at your own risk.
