WEBSITES – DO WE COLLECT ANONYMOUS DATA?
If you use our websites or related online facilities we may collect your IP address and your browser type for system administration and/or statistical purposes and without identifying any other individual information. A ‘cookie’ may be placed on your device in order to allow you to use the website.
A ‘cookie’ is a small piece of data which may be downloaded and stored by your device whenever you access our Media. Cookies allow L’Oreal to recognize your device while you are viewing our Media as a previous user but this does not enable us to collect any personal identifiable information from your device.
Web browsers are usually set by default to accept cookies but you may easily change this by modifying the settings of your browser and/or your own device whenever viewing content over the internet. However, please note that should you choose to disable cookies, you may be unable to use parts of our Media and this may affect your enjoyment and use of our Media.
HOW DO WE USE YOUR DATA?
We principally only use your personal identifiable information to keep you connected with us by regularly sending you news and information on our products, our brands, our initiatives, brand policies and/or related updates, to understand your preferences and to respond to any request or enquiry (collectively referred to as “Marketing Communication”).
We also use your information to improve your experience with us, understanding your interests in our Media and its contents, managing your memberships or online account, validating your enrolments to our initiatives, processing your payments, ensuring that our Media is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer, protecting against potential fraudulent transactions and also to maintain the security and integrity of our Media systems.

You may also require us to erase any data we have concerning you. However, please note that we may keep records of your data for archiving purposes (especially when required by law).
DO WE SHARE YOUR INFORMATION?
Other than as set out in this Privacy Statement or unless we have your prior consent, we will not share your information with anyone outside of L’Oreal Group or our designated service providers, for example our web agencies who may sometimes be asked to manage on our behalf some online initiatives.
Our service providers only access your data to operate the services that we ask them to perform. We also ask these business partners to always act in compliance with applicable privacy laws and to pay attention to the confidentiality of your data. If you do not wish to supply any personally identifiable information, you are welcome to refrain from doing so. We will not sell your personal identifiable information to any third parties and such data is retained only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the data was collected.
As we continue to develop our business, we might sell certain of our assets. In such event, customer information including personally identifiable information will generally be one of the transferred corporate assets. By using and/or submitting your data to us or via our Media, you consent and agree that all such data may be transferred in these circumstances.
WHERE DO WE STORE YOUR DATA?
Your information is stored in our databases accessible only by L’Oreal Group or where applicable, our employees and our contracted service providers.
In some cases, and mainly for technical reasons, those databases may be stored on servers located outside of the country (including outside of Hong Kong) from which you originally entered the data. In this case, and if there is a risk that countries to which your information are transferred are not subject to a data protection regime as rigorous as the one explained in this Privacy Statement, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that your data is treated in line with the terms of this Privacy Statement.
IS YOUR DATA KEPT SECURE?
We aim at always keeping your data safe and secure as possible. In this perspective we deploy multiple security technologies in order to prevent as much as possible any alteration, loss or unauthorized access to your data.
On our e-commerce Media, we handle your payment information with industry standard methods (such as PCI DSS).
Please be careful when submitting personal identifiable information online as no data transmission via the internet can be guaranteed as 100% secure. As a result, we cannot guarantee the complete security of any information that you may supply or transmit to us over the internet.
