3. Information Pierre Fabre Collects About You
a. How We Obtain Information You Provide
From time to time we may collect your information (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.), directly from you, when you 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 choose to 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 so that we may send future communications as you have requested.
• Registration for Other Pierre Fabre Products: When you choose to register to receive Pierre Fabre products or services or sign up for various events, whether free or paid, and whether they are offered by us or provided in association with our third-party partners, you may be asked to 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. See below for more information regarding credit cards.

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, instead, it 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.

Pierre Fabre is not responsible for the third-party credit card processor’s failure to comply with such laws, rules and/or regulations.
• Reasonable Measures. 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.
• Third Parties. Pierre Fabre may collect information about you that Pierre Fabre receives from other sources, such as social networking sites, as discussed above.
