OUR Beauty MANTRAS AND THINGS In Between
Like most web site operators, we collect non-personally-identifying information of the sort that web browsers and servers typically make available, such as the browser type, language preference, referring site, and the date and time of each visitor request. Our purpose in collecting non-personally identifying information is to better understand how our visitors use the Site. From time to time, we may release non-personally-identifying information in the aggregate, e.g., by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Site. We also collect information that may be personally-identifying like Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for logged in users and for users leaving comments on the Site (e.g., through the “BIALife Tips” interface or public comments on the Site). We only disclose logged in user and commenter IP addresses under the same circumstances that we use and disclose personally-identifying information as described below.
Gathering of Personally-Identifying Information
Certain visitors to the Site choose to interact with us in ways that require us to gather personally-identifying information. The amount and type of information that we gather depends on the nature of the interaction. Those who request personal beauty products, “BIALife Tips,” or other guidance are asked to provide additional information, including, as necessary, the personal and financial information required to provide those products or guidance. In each case, we collect such information only insofar as is necessary or appropriate to fulfill the purpose of the visitor’s interaction with us including, but not limited to, confirming and tracking beauty product orders and order histories. We do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below. Visitors can always refuse to supply personally-identifying information, with the caveat that it may prevent them from engaging in certain Site-related activities and receiving personal beauty products.
We may collect statistics about the behavior of visitors to the Site. We may display this information publicly or provide it to others. However, we do not disclose personally-identifying information other than as described below.
The Site is a general audience website for those interested in our beauty tips and products. The Site is not geared toward children, and users of the Site represent that they are at least 18 years of age. In order to protect children’s personally identifiable information and to meet the standards of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), we do not knowingly collect any personally-identifiable information from children, including children under 13. If a parent or legal guardian is made aware that a child under the age of 13 has provided us with personally-identifiable information, we ask to be notified at the email address or phone number set forth below. We will then delete any information about the child from our files.
Protection of Certain Personally-Identifying Information
We take measures reasonably necessary to protect against the unauthorized access, use, alteration or destruction of personally-identifying information. We disclose personally-identifying information only to those of our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations that (i) need to know such information in order to process it on our behalf or to provide services available at the Site, and (ii) that have agreed not to disclose it to others. Some of those employees, contractors and affiliated organizations may be located outside of your home country; by using the Site, you consent to the transfer of such information to them. We will not rent or sell personally-identifying information to anyone. Other than to our employees, contractors and affiliated organizations, as described above, we disclose personally-identifying information only in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request, or when we believe in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our property or rights or the property or rights of third parties, the public at large or as otherwise required by law.
If you are a registered user of a Site and have supplied your email address, we may occasionally send you an email to tell you about new features, solicit your feedback, or just keep you up to date with what’s going on with us and our products. We primarily use our various product messaging boards to communicate this type of information, so we expect to keep this type of email to a minimum. If you send us a request (for example via a support email or via one of our feedback mechanisms), we reserve the right to publish it in order to help us clarify or respond to your request or to help us support other users.

Blogs and Message Boards
We may offer various forums where you can communicate with individuals and groups (blogs and message boards). Please note that ideas that you post and information or images (e.g., “before and after” photographs) that you share may be seen and used by other users, and we cannot guarantee that other users will not use the ideas and information or images that you share on the Site. Therefore, if you have an idea, information or image that you would like to keep confidential and/or do not want others to use, or that is subject to third-party rights that may be infringed by your sharing it, do not share it on the Site. We are not responsible for a user’s misuse or misappropriation of any content or information that you post, upload or transmit within the Site.
Disclosures for Marketing Purposes
We will not disclose your personal data, including personal images such as “before and after” photographs, or profile data for marketing purposes of our own or of third-parties, unless you specifically and explicitly consent. If you consent to any such disclosure, you may withdraw your consent for future disclosures at any time, although any such withdrawal would not affect any data disclosed or shared before the change was processed.
California “Do Not Track” Disclosure
California law requires web sites to explain certain online practices regarding tracking of visitors. Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature that lets a user allow its browser to notify web sites that the user does not want to have his or her online activities tracked. Our Sites currently do not respond to such browser-initiated signals.
