1. INFORMATION COLLECTED
You may visit and browse the Sites without providing personally identifiable information about yourself. However, this may limit your ability to receive certain features, products or services from us.
Information You Provide
Information We Collect Automatically
Mobile Apps: Some of our mobile apps include opt-in, geo-location systems that provide location-based services, such as store locators, local weather, promotional offers and other personalised content. Some of our mobile apps include opt-in “push notifications”. Most mobile devices allow you to turn-off location services and push notifications. If you consent to the use of location services, we will collect information about the WiFi routers closest to you and the IDs of the mobile phone base stations closest to you to provide the requested location-based service, not to identify you.
Site Usage Information: L’Oréal and its third-party service providers may also use a variety of technologies that passively or automatically collect information about how the Sites are accessed and used ("Usage Information"), including your browser type, device type, operating system, application version, the pages served to you, the time you browse, preceding page views, and your use of features or applications on the Sites. This statistical data helps us understand what is interesting and relevant to users of the Sites so we can best tailor our content.
Device Identifiers: Lancôme also automatically collects an IP address or other unique identifier ("Device Identifier") for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, “Device”) you use to access the Sites. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a website or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Sites, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyse trends, track users’ web page movements, help identify you and your shopping bag, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use.
If you would prefer not to accept cookies, you can change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; or set your browser to automatically not accept any cookies. However, please be aware that some features and services on our Sites may not work properly because we may not be able to recognise and associate you with your account. In addition, the offers we provide when you visit us may not be as relevant to you or tailored to your interests.
Pixel Tags or Web Beacons: We also use web beacons or pixel tags, which are transparent graphic images placed on a web page or in an email and indicate that a page or email has been viewed or tell your browser to get content from another server. These may provide us with confirmation when you open an email from us.
2. INFORMATION FROM THIRD PARTIES
We may receive information about you from third parties that feature our products or promotional offers if you opt-in to receive information from us. You may also choose to use a third-party application or social media site through which you allow us to collect (or the third party to share) information about you, including Usage Information and Personal Information.
3. USE AND SHARING OF INFORMATION
Lancôme uses the information we collect about you for a variety of business purposes, including:
responding to your questions and requests; providing you with access to certain areas and features of the Sites; verifying your identity; fulfilling product purchases; communicating with you about your account and activities on the Sites sending you notice of any changes to Lancôme policies; tailoring content, advertisements, and offers we provide you; improving the Sites and for internal business purposes; allowing you to log-in with a social media account and share activities on your social media pages, such as Facebook processing applications and transactions.
Third Parties Providing Services On Our Behalf. We may share your Personal Information with third parties that perform functions on our behalf (or on behalf of our partners) such as service providers that host or operate our Sites, analyse data, process transactions and payments, fulfil orders or provide customer services; advertisers; sponsors or other third parties that participate in or administer our promotions, contests, sweepstakes, surveys or provide marketing or promotional assistance. Your Personal Information may also be used by us or shared with our subsidiaries, affiliates, sponsors, partners, advertisers or other third parties to provide you with product information and promotional or other offers to help maintain and operate the Sites or for other reasons related to the operation of our business, including but not limited to the fulfilment of purchases, promotional offers, and administering contests.
Business Transfers. We may share your Personal Information with other entities and our affiliates in the family of companies controlled by L’Oreal UK limited for internal reasons, primarily for business and operational purposes. As we continue to develop our business, we may sell or purchase assets. If another entity acquires us or our assets, or assets related to the Sites, Personal Information, Usage Information, and any other information that we have collected about the users of the Sites may be disclosed to such entity as one of the transferred assets. Also, if any bankruptcy or reorganisation proceeding is brought by or against us, all such information may be considered an asset of ours and as such may be sold or transferred to third parties.
4. YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS, CHOICES AND ACCESS.
You may instruct us not to share your Personal Information with third parties, not to use your Personal Information to provide you with information or offers, or not to send you newsletters, emails or other communications by: (i) modifying your registered user information on the Sites; (ii) sending us an email by clicking here; or (iii) following the removal instructions in the communications that you receive.
If you wish to modify, verify, correct, delete, or update any of your Personal Information collected through the Sites, you may edit your profile preferences or contact us at the above address or email. In accordance with our routine record-keeping, we may delete certain records that contain Personal Information you have submitted through the Sites. We are under no obligation to store such Personal Information indefinitely and disclaim any liability arising out of, or related to, the destruction of such Personal Information. In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons. We will retain your information (including geo-location data) for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your information to provide you services, contact us here. We will retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. We do not control certain privacy settings and preferences maintained by our social media partners like Facebook and Twitter. If you wish to make changes to those settings and preferences, you may do so by visiting the settings page of the appropriate social media site.
5. ADVERTISING/TARGETED ADVERTISING; HOW TO OPT-OUT
Lancôme licenses technology to serve advertisements on its own Sites and within its site content, as that content is served across the internet. In addition, Lancôme may use third-party network advertisers to serve advertisements and third-party analytics vendors to evaluate and provide us with information about the use of the Sites and viewing of our content. We do not share Personal Information with these third parties, but ad network providers, the advertisers, the sponsors, and/or analytics service providers may set and access their own cookies, pixel tags and similar technologies on your Device, and they may otherwise collect or have access to information about you, including Usage Information. We and our network advertisers may use targeted advertisements for products and services in which you might be interested based on your visits to both the Sites and other websites. We may use a variety of companies to serve advertisements.
If you prefer to not receive targeted advertising, you can opt-out of certain network advertising programmes through the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) Opt-Out Page: http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp. Please note that even if you choose to remove your information (opt out), you will still see advertisements while you're browsing online. However the advertisements you see may be less relevant to you and your interests. Additionally, many network advertising programmes allow you to view and manage the interest categories they have compiled from your online browsing activities. These interest categories help determine the types of targeted advertisements you may receive. The NAI Opt-Out Page provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have cookies on your browser and provides links to those companies.
The Sites are not intended for children under 13. We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 years of age. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain his/her Personal Information without the parent/guardian’s consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 13, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our records.
7. SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
Lancôme maintains reasonable safeguards to protect Personal Information against loss, unauthorised use, disclosure and destruction and when transferring information for processing. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information to you transmit to us. Lancôme restricts authorised access to your personal information to those persons who have a legitimate purpose to know that information in order to provide products or services to you and those persons you have authorised to have access to such information. We also require that third parties providing services on our behalf protect Personal Information and not use it for purposes other than providing assistance to Lancôme.
