Information we will automatically collect from you
When you interact with our Sites and Products, and when you Communicate with us, we automatically receive certain types of information about you, including:
Usage Information. Information such as the features you use on our Sites, the links you click and the items you view, pages you visit, emails and advertisements you view, Products you view and purchase, the time of day you browse, and your referring and exiting pages. We may collect this information through a variety of tools, including but not limited to session replay software.
Device Information. Information about the device you are using, including but not limited to the type of device you use, the temporary or persistent unique device identifier (UDID) placed by us or our service providers, the IP address of your device, your operating system, the type of browser you use, and data from the way you use our Sites.
Location Data. Information such as imprecise location data (such as location derived from an IP address or data that indicates a city or postal code level). Our Sites may also collect information about the location of your device. Your device should require you to provide permission before our Sites obtain precise geolocation information from a browser's geolocation API or from technologies like GPS, WiFi, and/or cell towers. We and our service providers may use this approximate location and/or precise geolocation information, along with other information submitted by you, to provide you with location-based services like local Store information, search results, special offers, and other personalized content. Most browsers and mobile devices allow users to enable or disable precise geolocation using pop-ups or controls located in the settings menu.
Cookies. Cookies are small data files stored on your device that act as a unique tag to identify your browser. We use two types of cookies on our Sites: session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies make it easier for you to navigate our Sites and expire when you close your browser. Persistent cookies help with personalizing your experience, remembering your preferences, and supporting security features. Additionally, persistent cookies allow us to bring you advertising both on and off the Sites. Persistent cookies may remain on your device for extended periods of time, and generally may be controlled through your browser settings.
App Technologies. Information concerning technologies included in our mobile applications and Sites that are not browser-based like cookies and cannot be controlled by browser settings. For example, our Sites may include SDKs, which is code that sends information about your use to a server. These SDKs allow us to track our Communications, bring you advertising both on and off the Sites, and provide you with additional functionality, such as the ability to connect our Sites with your social media account.
Internet-based advertising / Do Not Track
We may, from time to time, collect information about users over time and across different websites when you use this Sites. Our third-party partners may also collect information in this manner. For example, we may use one or more third-party online advertising networks to serve ads on our behalf on third-party websites. The third-party ad network may collect information about your visits to our Sites and your interaction with our online ads. This is primarily accomplished using technology such as cookies, action tags, web beacons, and/or GIF tags which are placed in various places within our Sites and our online ads.
We may share information with third-party ad networks in an aggregate form to help us analyze and improve our Sites and our online ads. The third-party ad networks may use information about your visit to our Sites and other websites in order to provide you with ads about goods and services that may be of interest to you. For example, if you browse for information about mascara products on our Sites or on third-party websites, we or the online ad network may show you ads for mascara products.. If you opt-out of interest-based ads, you will still see ads on websites you visit, but those ads will not be based on your browsing behavior.
Some browsers have a 'do not track' feature that lets you tell websites that you do not want to have your online activities tracked. These features are not yet uniform, so our Site is not currently designed to respond to those signals.
Social media widgets and single sign on services
Our Sites use third-party social media widgets such as buttons or similar mechanisms from Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, and/or FourSquare. Such third-party features may collect information about you, like your IP address and the page(s) you visit on our Sites. They may also place cookies on your device. These social media widgets are either hosted by a Third Party or by our Sites. Your interactions with those features are governed by the privacy policies of the third-party social media networks that provide them.

This Site is directed to adults and does not knowingly collect personal information online from children under the age of 13 without prior parental consent. If you are the parent or guardian of a child under the age of 13, and you believe your child has provided personal information to our Sites that you would like us to delete, please contact us.
