California Privacy Policy

Effective Date: July 1, 2020

At Beauty Encounter, we recognize and respect the importance of maintaining the privacy of our customers and members, and have established this California Privacy Rights Policy (the “Notice”) to supplement the Beauty Encounter Privacy Policy to describe your rights as a California resident (“Consumer”) under California law, such as the California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018 (“CCPA”).

Rights of Consumers

This section describes the rights of Consumers under the CCPA. For information on how to contact Beauty Encounter to exercise these rights, please see the section below entitled, “How to Submit a Request.”

Right to Know

A Consumer has the right to request that a business disclose what personal information it collects, uses, discloses or sells. Specifically, a Consumer may request that a business that collects personal information about the Consumer disclose to the Consumer the following:

(1)   The categories of personal information it has collected about that Consumer.

(2)   The categories of sources from which the personal information is collected.

(3)   The business or commercial purpose for collecting or selling personal information.

(4)   The categories of third parties with whom the business shares personal information.

(5)   The specific pieces of personal information it has collected about that Consumer.

A Consumer may request that a business that sells the Consumer’s personal information, or that discloses it for a business purpose, disclose to that Consumer:

(1)   The categories of personal information that the business collected about the Consumer.

(2)   The categories of personal information that the business sold about the Consumer and the categories of third parties to whom the personal information was sold, by category or categories of personal information for each third party to whom the personal information was sold.

(3)   The categories of personal information that the business disclosed about the Consumer for a business purpose.

Right to Request Deletion

A Consumer has the right to request that a business delete any personal information about the Consumer which the business has collected from the Consumer. Applicable law provides a number of exceptions to this right. If we determine that we will not delete your personal information when you request us to do so, we will inform you and tell you why we are not deleting it.

Right to Opt Out of the Sale of Personal Information

Beauty Encounter does not sell Consumers’ personal information. However, the collection of data through third party cookies for targeted advertising purposes may be considered a “sale” under the CCPA. While we do not sell Consumers’ personal information, we do use third party cookies for targeted advertising purposes and so, consistent with applicable law, you may request that your information not be shared with such parties by going to our “Cookie Preference Center” web page.

Right Not to be Discriminated

A Consumer has the right not to be discriminated against as a result of exercising any of the Consumer’s rights under the CCPA.

How to Submit a Request

To exercise the rights described above, you must submit a verifiable Consumer request to us by contacting us at 888-617-2488 or by using our Contact Us page at https://www.beautyencounter.com/contactus/ and providing the requested information.

You may submit a request as frequently as you would like, but we are not required to respond to requests to provide personal information to you more than twice in any 12-month period.

To submit a verifiable Consumer request, you may be asked to provide certain information to help us verify your identity, such as your name, email address and phone number that you used at Beauty Encounter. The information we ask you to provide to initiate a request may differ depending upon the type of request, the type, sensitivity and value of the personal information that is the subject of the request, and the risk of harm to you that may occur as a result of unauthorized access or deletion, among other factors. We may also require you to provide a written declaration that you are who you say you are. If you have an online account with us, we may ask you to make the request through your account to help us verify you.

You may make a verifiable Consumer request on behalf of your minor child. You may also designate an authorized agent to make a request on your behalf by submitting a request through the toll-free number or web page listed above.

If we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request, we will not be able to comply with your request. We will inform you if we cannot verify your identity or authority. We will only use personal information provided in a verifiable Consumer request to verify the requestor’s identity or authority to make the request.
