privacy and legal

Dermalogica, Inc. (“Dermalogica”) respects your privacy. This Privacy Policy sets forth how we handle information we obtain from you and learn about you when you visit our websites, including our main site at http://www.dermalogica.com. This Privacy Policy addresses the following:

The infomation we collect:

- Access to your information by third parties;

- The choices that are available to you regarding how the information is used and to whom it is disseminated;

- Your rights to access and correct or update your personally identifiable information; and

- Our pledge to have reasonable security procedures that are in place to protect the loss, misuse or alteration of information under our control.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

Dermalogica may collect two types of information about you when you visit our site: personal information (including, by way of example only, your name, address, telephone number and email address) and non-personal, aggregate information (such as information regarding the pages on our site that you have visited and your IP address).

1. Personally Identifiable Information

The only personally identifying information that we collect and store about you is the information that you choose to provide to us. For example, we gather your personally identifiable information when you send us an email or a letter, or when you register for a loyalty program. We will use this information to respond to your email or letter, or to administer the loyalty program. We also may use the information to send you notifications about our products and about Dermalogica events.

2. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We collect and use non-personally identifiable information about you in the following ways:

a. Referrers, IP Addresses and Other Non-Personal Information

Dermalogica collects information through “referrers”, IP addresses and various environmental variables. A “referrer” is information the web browser passes along to the Dermalogica web server that references the URL from which you came. The “IP address” is a number used by computers on the network to identify your computer so that data can be transmitted to you. “Environmental variables” include, among other things, the domain from which you access the Internet, the time you accessed our website, the types of web browser and operating system or platform used, the Internet address of the websites you left to visit Dermalogica, the names of the pages you visit while at our website and the Internet address of the website you then visit. We collect all of this information to allow us to detect broad demographic trends, to provide information tailored to your interests and to enhance your experience on Dermalogica’s websites.

b. Profiling

To help us improve our websites and to ensure that we make every effort to provide you with information that is of interest to you, we may merge your personally identifiable information with click-stream data and other data we have (including offline data). We will not merge your personally identifiable information in this way without giving you an opportunity to opt-out of any such merge. This opportunity to opt-out will be provided at the time and place of information collection and before data is entered into our system. We may also develop a profile based on your use of our site that does not include any personally identifiable information.

3. Sharing Your Information With Third Parties

We may share your personally identifiable information (such as your name, address, email address and telephone number) with our affiliates without prior consent. Except (i) as part of our security processes instituted to prevent fraud, and (ii) as part of the management of your account (e.g. credit card processing for purchases), we will not share your personally identifiable information with non-affiliated third parties without your prior consent. In the case that we share your personally identifiable information as part of our security processes or as part of the management of your account as described in this section, we will contractually obligate the third party to protect your personally identifiable information, and to use it only as directed by Dermalogica.

4. Links

This website may contain links to other sites. Please be aware that we are not responsible for the privacy practices of such other sites. We encourage our users to read the privacy statements of each and every website that they visit. In general, you should be cautious about providing personally identifiable information to websites unless you trust the owner and operator of the website. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected when you visit Dermalogica’s family of websites.

5. Notification of Changes

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on our website so you will always be aware of what information we collect, how we use it and under circumstances we disclose it. It is your responsibility to check our privacy policy for changes periodically. If at any point we decide to use personally identifiable information in a manner different from that stated at the time it was collected, we will notify you by way of an email, if you have provided us with an email address. You will then have a choice as to whether or not we use your information in this different manner.

6. Special Policy Regarding Information from Children Under Thirteen

Dermalogica is not targeted to children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from any child under the age of 13 without parental consent. When we do receive such information, we delete it as soon as we discover it and do not use it or share it with third parties.
