BECAUSE COSMETICS, LLC PRIVACY POLICY

Introduction

BeCause Cosmetics, LLC (referred to below as “BeCause,” “the company,” “we,” “us” and “our”) understands the importance of privacy of individuals (referred to as “users” and “you”). This privacy notice outlines the personal information BeCause may collect and how the company will use and disclose that information. We are committed to protecting your personal information. We have adopted the following policies with regard to collection and distribution of that information.

Collection of Information

BeCause may collect two different types of information, Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. “Personally Identifiable Information” is information that identifies you as an individual – for example, your name, address, telephone number, email address, credit card information, billing address and shipping information. “Non-Personally Identifiable Information” is aggregated information, demographic information, IP addresses, user behavior data from web interaction metrics tools and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity.

During the enrollment process, or while purchasing products on websites maintained by BeCause, the company may collect Personally Identifiable Information about you that may be considered sensitive.

BeCause may also collect Personally Identifiable Information about you from, among other places: information you provide directly to us, information regarding the services that we currently provide or have previously provided to you, information BeCause receives from our affiliated entities or third-parties relating to the establishment of our relationship or the provision of services to you.

This information can be received in any manner, including in-person discussions, telephone conversations, and electronic or other written communications.

Cookies

We may collect information about your general internet usage by using a digital file, called a cookie, which is stored on the hard drive of your computer. Cookies help us to improve our site and to deliver a better and more personalized user experience. They enable us to estimate our audience size and usage pattern, to store information about your preferences (and so allow us to customize our site according to your individual interests), to speed up your searches and to recognize you when you return to our site. You may refuse to accept cookies by activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you select this setting certain portions of our site may not function as intended or you may be unable to access certain parts of our site. Unless you have adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you use our site.

Use Of Information

BeCause may collect Personally Identifiable Information about you to establish or maintain our relationship with you, respond to your inquiries, provide you with services you have requested, keep you informed of services we think may be of interest to you, personalize your experience with us, and/or other reasons.

Without this information, BeCause may be unable to provide you with the services you have requested.

Disclosure of Information

BeCause does not sell or lease Personally Identifiable Information about you to others.

We may share Personally Identifiable Information about you with others as permitted by contractual agreement or as required by law, such as our Affiliates, third-parties in connection with services we provide to you, government entities and regulatory bodies, and those with whom you have requested us to share information.

BeCause will not share Personally Identifiable Information about you with an unaffiliated third party who is not performing services for us without first obtaining your permission, except if such sharing is otherwise permitted by this privacy notice. We will provide this information about you to the following types of third-parties for the following reasons:

  • Carriers: BeCause will provide your name and address to companies which provide a delivery service between the company and its customers as a means of delivering our products to you as quickly as possible.
  • Financial Institutions: BeCause will provide financial institutions with your payment information, name, address, phone number, or other necessary information to process any orders placed by you to complete payment of your order.

BeCause requires third-parties who perform services for us to agree to treat Personally Identifiable Information about you confidentially and securely. Prior to collecting this information, any such third-parties are required to sign a service agreement, which includes terms and conditions that contain the privacy policy outlined here. Note that this statement does not address the privacy practices or polices of our independent Affiliates. However, BeCause Affiliates agree, as specified in our Policies and Procedures, to comply with all applicable privacy laws and regulations.

Notwithstanding any other provision of this notice or the Terms and Conditions of Use to the contrary, we reserve the right to disclose and use your Personally Identifiable Information if we believe that we are required to do so: (a) by law; (b) in response to legal process, for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena; (c) in response to a law enforcement agency’s request; (d) to enforce our other terms, conditions, or policies; (e) to protect our operations; (f) to protect the rights, privacy, safety or property of BeCause, you or others; and/or (g) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages we may sustain.

Because Non-Personally Identifiable Information does not personally identify you, we reserve the right to use this information and to disclose it to third-parties for any purpose.

Access

You may request access to the Personally Identifiable Information that BeCause has about you. You may also request the correction, amendment or deletion of this information that is inaccurate. BeCause will treat requests for access, correction, amendment or deletion of this information in accordance with its internal policies and applicable legal requirements.

Information Security and Integrity

BBeCause maintains reasonable physical, administrative and technical safeguards to protect Personally Identifiable Information from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. Our employees are provided access to this information only if they have a need to know the information in connection with a legitimate business purpose, such as (a) providing services to you or (b) identifying other services that we and our Affiliates offer that may be of interest or use to you.

Additionally, BeCause will only use Personally Identifiable Information for the purpose which it was intentionally collected. We will take reasonable measures to safeguard your information and ensure that is accurate, complete and current.

Changes to this Privacy Policy

BeCause reserves the right to change this privacy notice at any time. Any changes to this notice will become effective upon posting of the revised notice online or as required by law.
