This may include “traffic” data or tracking information provided by the Site’s host or similar providers (e.g., Google Analytics) that may be helpful for marketing purposes or for improving the Service.

Information We Collect From Our Customers

We offer skin care products for sale at wholesale and so our customers are typically business entities. As such, the personal information we collect from them is limited and generally relates to the business contact information for our customers’ owners, officers, and/or employees. In particular, this information may include: 

  • Identifiers. We may collect the name and signature of our customers’ authorized representatives (e.g., owner, director, officer, partner, or shareholder). We may also collect login credentials for customers’ authorized representatives or employees that establish an account with us. You also have the option to create an account using other credentials like your Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter account. If you choose to do so, information like your name, email address, language preference, and encrypted credentials will be shared with us.
  • Business information. We may also collect business contact details for our customers’ authorized representatives and/or employees. This includes the authorized representative’s or employee’s name and title as well as the business address, business email address, and business phone number.
  • Payment information. In the event a customer makes payments using a credit card issued in the name of the customer’s authorized representative or employee, we collect the name of the cardholder and credit card number, expiration date, and CVV code.

You are not required to provide all information identified in this Privacy Policy to use our Service or to interact with us, but certain functionality will not be available if you do not provide certain information. For example, if you do not provide business contact details, we may not be able to respond to your requests or allow you to register an account.

4. Cookies

We store certain information that gets collected automatically at our end through cookies and other similar technologies. A cookie is a small string of information that a website that you visit transfers to your browser for identification purposes. Cookies can be used to follow your activity while using a website or across websites, and that information helps companies understand your preferences and tendencies, as well as improve and personalize your website experience. Some cookies are necessary to operate a website, while others can be functional, analytical, or used for marketing purposes, including targeted advertising (as discussed in more detail below). Cookies on our Sites are generally divided into the following categories:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies. These are required for the operation of our Sites. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into a password-protected portions of one of our Sites and cookies that save items in your online shopping cart. 
  • Analytical/Performance Cookies. These allow us to recognize and count the number of users on our Site and understand how such users navigate through the Site (e.g., when and which pages are visited, in what order the pages are visited, and where a user is located). This helps improve how our Sites work, for example, by ensuring that users can find what they are looking for easily.

We use Google Analytics for part of this process. For more information about Google Analytics, please visit http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You can opt-out of Google Analytics’ collection and use of data generated by your use of our Sites by going to https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.    

  • Functional Cookies. These improve the functional performance of our Sites and make them easier for you to use. For example, cookies are used to remember that you previously visited a Site and asked to remain logged into it (e.g., this saves your username). These cookies qualify as persistent cookies because they remain on your device for us to use during your next visit to our Site. 
  • Marketing Cookies. These are used to track visitors across websites. These cookies are used to display ads that are relevant and engaging to you.

You can prevent the use of certain cookies by modifying your Internet browser settings, typically under the sections “Help,” “Internet Options,” or “Settings.” If you disable or delete certain cookies in your Internet browser settings, you may still access our Sites, however, you might not be able to access or use important functions or features of our Sites (such as the shopping cart feature), and you may, for example, be required to re-enter your log-in details.
