From time to time, Pierre Fabre may update its Policy, and it is subject to change. Pierre Fabre will post the new Policy on the Websites with a new Effective Date to notify you of these changes.

In addition, by accessing the Online Services after the Effective Date, you are deemed to consent to our then-current Policy.
HOW DO PIERRE FABRE AND THIRD PARTIES GATHER AND/OR TRACK INFORMATION ABOUT YOU?
How We Obtain Information You Provide
There may be times (such as when you purchase or order a product, subscribe to a service, register to receive newsletter, or to participate in contests, sweepstakes or promotions, etc.) when we ask you to provide certain contact information about yourself, such as your name, shipping/billing address, telephone number, email address, social media user name, credit card information, birth date, gender, occupation, personal interests, and other information. We may also maintain a record of your product purchases.
Whether or not to provide such information is completely your own choice. But if you choose not to provide the information we request, you may be unable to purchase products, or access certain services, offers and content on our Websites. In addition, we may need to contact you via phone, email or mail to address questions or issues specific to your order, entry, etc., even if you have opted to not receive marketing communications from us.
• Email and Promotions: When you sign-up to receive information, including emails and promotions from Pierre Fabre, enroll in our loyalty program or register for any other marketing campaign, Pierre Fabre may require that you supply your name, email address and other personal information.
• Registration for Other Pierre Fabre Products: When you register to receive Pierre Fabre products or services or sign up for various events, whether they are free or paid, and whether they are offered by us or provided in association with our third-party partners, Pierre Fabre may require that you supply your full name, email address, contact information, and other personal information. In some instances, Pierre Fabre also collects credit card information to bill you for products.
• Sweepstakes, Contests and Promotions. We may offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (a “Promotion”) that may require registration. You will be asked to provide certain personal information in order to participate in any such Promotions, and any information you provide may be used and disclosed as set forth in this Policy, as well as in connection with the administration of such Promotion and as required by law or permitted by the Promotion’s official rules.
• Credit Card Information: Pierre Fabre does not have access to your full credit card number and does not store such information in its own systems. For recurring orders or accounts set up for auto-replenishment, the credit or debit card information you provide in connection with your account is not stored by Pierre Fabre, but is stored and used by our third-party credit card processor to process payments that you owe to Pierre Fabre. By submitting your credit or debit card information to us, you expressly consent to the sharing of such information with our third-party payment processor and acknowledge that such third party may store your credit and/or debit card information for these purposes. Information transmitted to the third-party credit card processor is encrypted using SSL software. The third-party credit card processor is required to comply with all applicable privacy and security laws and the rules and regulations issued by the credit card companies. Pierre Fabre maintains reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to help protect your personal information. While we attempt to protect the information in our possession, no security system is perfect, and we cannot promise that information about you will remain secure in all circumstances. Pierre Fabre is not responsible for the third-party credit card processor’s failure to comply with such laws, rules and/or regulations.
• Partner Products & Services Offered on the Online Services: Third parties, such as partners, sponsors or advertisers whose services are promoted or advertised on the Online Services may request that you provide personal information.
• Third Parties: Pierre Fabre may collect information about you that Pierre Fabre receives from other sources.

Pierre Fabre may use a variety of technologies (collectively, “Tracking Technologies”, to gather personal and non-personal information (which is any information that does not reveal your specific identity) automatically (or passively) whenever you visit or interact with the Online Services. Some of the Tracking Technologies we use include:

When you view pages from our Website, our servers may record or “log” your IP Address and sometimes your domain name. Our server also may record the page that linked you to us and related information including any ads you may have clicked on. Such information is known as “Clickstream Data”.

However, the degree to which your location can be identified depends on the device you are using (e.g. laptop, smartphone, tablet) and how you are connected to the internet (e.g. via cable broadband connection, WiFi, etc.).
