Thank you for visiting www.lauramercier.com (our "Site"). This Site is powered by Laura Mercier Cosmetics.
What Information We Collect and How We Use It
Any information we collect on our Site generally falls into the following two categories: Personally Identifiable Information or Aggregate Information.
1. Personally Identifiable Information
This refers to information that lets us know who you are or things specifically about you.
You can browse our Site using the Visitor function without revealing any Personally Identifiable Information. If you want to register or place an order, you may voluntarily provide Personally Identifiable Information (such as name, address, email address and telephone number). In such event, we might maintain a record of your contact, including such Personally Identifiable Information, in a file specific to you. We use this information to provide better service in the event that you contact us again.
When you register to shop online as a Customer, enjoying full access to the many products available on our Site, we will collect Personally Identifiable Information (such as name, address email address, and telephone number). This Personally Identifiable Information is securely stored and may be accessed under Contact Information. You are assigned an identification number and select your own username and password. Both are needed to enter the Site and to access your Contact Information.
When you place an order for products, we collect Personally Identifiable Information (such as name, contact and billing information, credit card and other transaction information). We use this information to deliver your order, process payment and to communicate with you about the status of your order. We may provide information necessary to the delivery of your order to our shipping partners, including the type of products ordered.
D. CREDIT CARD STORAGE
Credit card information collected at registration or for shopping bag orders is used only to process payment for the transaction and generally is not retained on our Site.
E. SURVEYS AND PROMOTIONS
From time to time you may voluntarily provide Personally Identifiable Information to complete surveys and questionnaires or to participate in user polls. We use this information to improve our products. We may also use your Personally Identifiable Information to provide you newsletters and other marketing information that coincide with your preferences. You may customize your marketing preferences, or let us know if you do not wish to receive any promotional materials, by adjusting your Subscriptions and Email options on the Site or through a link provided in an email communication.
2. AGGREGATE INFORMATION
This refers to information that does not, by itself, identify you as a specific individual. Such information would include the Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") of the website that referred you to our Site, your Internet Protocol ("IP") address (a number automatically assigned to your computer whenever you surf the Web), your operating system and browser type and any search terms that you enter on our Site. Our web server aggregates this information in order to monitor the level of activity on our Site, evaluate its effectiveness and improve the content of our Site in order to make your visit an easy and enjoyable experience.
SHARING YOUR INFORMATION
Should Laura Mercier Cosmetics or its related entities merge with or be acquired by another business entity, or its respective assets be acquired, you should expect that we would share some or all of your Personally Identifiable Information to companies assuming the role of serving you and other users of our Site.
Your permission is always secured first. We will not use or share the Personally Identifiable Information collected on our Site in ways unrelated to the purpose for which you provided the information, including those described above, without providing you a choice whether to permit any such unrelated uses.
ACCESSING AND CORRECTING YOUR INFORMATION
We take reasonable measures to ensure that any Personally Identifiable Information we collect on our Site is accurate, current, complete and reliable for its intended use. If you wish to update or otherwise correct Personally Identifiable Information you have provided to us, you may edit your information online after completing registration, or contact us as described in the "Contact Us" section below and we will assist you.
PROTECTING YOUR INFORMATION
We acknowledge your trust and are committed to taking reasonable steps to protect Personally Identifiable Information you provide online from loss, misuse and unauthorized access. We employ physical, electronic and managerial processes to safeguard and secure your information.
It is your responsibility to safeguard the password you use to access our Site. We strongly encourage you to change your password regularly to prevent unauthorized access. Because your identification number, username and password are specific to you, you acknowledge sole responsibility for any and all use of our Site conducted with your identification number and password.
A "cookie" is a small data file transferred to your computer’s hard drive that allows a website to respond to you as an individual, gathering and remembering information about your preferences in order to tailor its operation to your needs, likes and dislikes. Cookies also enable an Internet retailer like us to keep track of a consumer’s electronic "shopping cart" before completing a purchase. Overall, cookies are safe, as they only identify your computer to customize your web experience. Accepting a cookie does not provide us access to your computer or any Personally Identifiable Information about you, other than the information you choose to share. Other servers cannot read them, nor can they be used to deliver a virus.
Most browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually adjust yours (Microsoft Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome) to notify you of cookie placement requests, refuse certain cookies or decline cookies completely. If you turn off cookies completely, there may be some Web site features that will not be available to you, and some Web pages may not display properly.
To support the personalized features of our Site (such as your country and language codes, electronic shopping cart, and other ordering and browsing functions) we must send a cookie to your computer’s hard drive and/or use cookie-based authentication to identify you as a registered Site user. We do not, however, use so-called "surveillance" cookies that track your activity elsewhere on the Web.
USE OF ACTIVE-X AND JAVA APPLETS ON THIS SITE
Active-X programs and JAVA applets are executable programs that can be transferred to your computer’s hard drive to cause your computer to perform functions in connection with your visit to a website. Our Site does not transfer any Active-X programs or Java Applets to your computer’s hard drive.
USE OF THIRD-PARTY MEDIA AND RESEARCH COMPANIES
Our Site may run limited third-party ads only for those Merchant and Services Partners with whom we link. In addition, we may use third-party media and research companies to place ads for us on other parties’ websites.
