Complexion By Design DOES NOT PROVIDE NOTICES OF CHANGES IN ANY MANNER OTHER THAN BY POSTING THE CHANGES AT THIS WEB SITE.
This policy applies to Complexion By Design collection, use, storage and disclosure of information by Complexion By Design on its (a) websites, including all its divisions, subsidiaries and related companies (collectively, the “Websites”), (b) on various third party websites, and (c) to Complexion By Design other information collection, including the purchase of customer lists from third parties. Complexion By Design is not responsible for the information collection or privacy practices of third web sites or applications.
1. Collection of Information.
1.1 Survey Information.
Complexion By Design collects information from individuals by various methods, including, but not limited to, when an individual voluntarily completes a Complexion By Design survey, order form, or a registration page either online or offline, or by means of online or offline surveys, order forms, or registration pages operated by third parties (collectively, a “Survey”). (As used herein, “online” means using the Internet, including the Websites, and related technologies, and “offline” means by methods other than online, including in person, in the postal mail, using telephones and cell phones, and other similar means.) In the Surveys, Complexion By Design or a third party (a “Third Party”) may ask an individual to provide various information to Complexion By Design, which may include his or her name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, education and marital status, occupation, social security number, employment information, personal and online interests, and such other information as may be requested from time to time (together, “Survey Information”). Complexion By Design may also collect information concerning an individual from another source and uses that information in combination with information provided from this web site. Completing the Surveys is completely voluntary, and individuals are under no obligation to provide Survey Information to Complexion By Design or Third Party, but an individual may receive incentives from Complexion By Design or a Third Party in exchange for providing Survey Information to Complexion By Design.
1.2 Third Party List Information.
Complexion By Design collects information from individuals when an individual provides information to a third party and Complexion By Design subsequently purchases, licenses, or otherwise acquires the information from the third party (the “Seller”). Such purchased information may include, but is not limited to, an individual’s name, email address, street address, zip code, telephone numbers (including cell phone numbers and carriers), birth date, gender, salary range, credit card information, education and marital status, occupation, industry of employment, personal and online interests, and such other information as the individual may have provided to the Seller (together, “Third Party List Information”). When acquiring Third Party List Information, Complexion By Design seeks assurances from the Seller that the Seller has a right to transfer the Third Party List Information to Complexion By Design and that the Seller has a right to provide offers from advertisers to the individuals whose personal information is included on the Seller’s list.
1.3 Other Informations.
Other occasions when Complexion By Design obtains information from individuals include
(1) when an individual is making a claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by Complexion By Design or by a third party,
(2) when an individual requests assistance through Complexion By Design’s customer service department, and
(3) when an individual voluntarily subscribes to a Complexion By Designservice or newsletter (together, “Other Information”).
1.4 Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology.
Complexion By Design currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, Complexion By Design may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future (together, “Technology Information”).
A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of the individual’s computer that allows Complexion By Design to identify the individual with his or her corresponding data that resides in Complexion By Design’s database. You may read more about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Websites need to accept cookies in order to use all of the features and functionality of the Websites.
(b) Web Beacons.
A web beacon is programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page (by using an programming function — see http://truste.org for more information), but can also be used to transfer an individual’s unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows Complexion By Design to track certain web sites an individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in, and to track online behavioral habits for marketing purposes. For example, Complexion By Design might place, with the consent of a third party website, a web beacon on the third party’s website where fishing products are sold. When Bill, an individual listed in Complexion By Design’s database, visits the fishing website, Complexion By Design receives notice by means of the web beacon that Bill visited the fishing site, and Complexion By Design would then update Bill’s profile with the information that Bill is interested in fishing. Complexion By Design may thereafter present offers of fishing related products and services to Bill. In addition to using web beacons on web pages, Complexion By Design also uses web beacons in email messages sent to individuals listed in Complexion By Design’s database.
(c) New Technology.
The use of technology on the Internet, including cookies and web beacons, is rapidly evolving, as is Complexion By Design’s use of new and evolving technology. As a result, Complexion By Design strongly encourages individuals to revisit this policy for any updates regarding its use of technology.
1.5 Outside Information.
Complexion By Design may receive information about individuals from third parties or from other sources of information outside of Complexion By Design including information located in public databases (“Outside Information”).
1.6 Individual Information
As used herein, Individual Information means Survey Information, Third Party List Information, Other Information, Technology Information, and Outside Information, and any other information Complexion By Design gathers or receives about individuals
1.7 No Information Collected from Children.
Complexion By Design will never knowingly collect any personal information about children under the age of 13. If Complexion By Design obtains actual knowledge that it has collected personal information about a child under the age of 13, that information will be immediately deleted from our database. Because it does not collect such information, Complexion By Design has no such information to use or to disclose to third parties. Complexion By Design has designed this policy in order to comply with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (“COPPA”).
1.8 Credit Card Information
Complexion By Design may in certain cases collect credit card numbers and related information, such as the expiration date of the card (“Credit Card Information”) when an individual places an order from Complexion By Design. When the Credit Card Information is submitted to Complexion By Design, such information is encrypted and is protected with SSL encryption software. Complexion By Design will use the Credit Card Information for purposes of processing and completing the purchase transaction, and the Credit Card Information will be disclosed to third parties only as necessary to complete the purchase transaction.
