Privacy Policy

Introduction

This website www.yslbeauty.co.uk is owned and run by L’Oréal (U.K.) Limited (“L’Oréal”). L’Oréal is committed to safeguarding your privacy online. We believe that the best way to protect the privacy of users of our website (the "Website") is to tell you what information we gather and ensure that you understand and consent to our uses of such information.

We may occasionally modify the privacy policy and will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it. We may let you know via the homepage when this happens but you should check the policy frequently to read the changes.

Please note that the Website contains links to and from other websites. We are not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites and the information practices of those websites are not covered by this privacy policy.

What information do we collect? How do we use it?

When you visit the Website, we may ask you for contact information, personal details and your email address. From time to time we may use the information you give us for marketing purposes (for example to develop or promote complimentary products or services). Where you have consented to us doing so, we may share information you give us with other carefully selected companies. We are continually developing products and services abased on information and feedback we receive from visitors to the Website and users of our products and services and we may share these with you , as well as notifying you about other products we think you will find valuable and interesting. If you do not want to receive such communications, simply tell us when you give us your personal information or email us at contact@yslbeauty.co.uk. We may also use your personal information to track activity on the Website. We do this in order to serve you better as we understand how you and other visitors use the Website.

Whenever we collect personal information we make an effort to include a link to this privacy policy on that page.

Do we share the information we receive?

Your information will only be shared with our agents, consultants, service providers and other companies within the L’Oréal group. We do not otherwise disclose information about your individual visits to the Website or personal information which identifies you to other third parties unless we have your prior consent or unless required to do so by law.

Where will the data be stored? How secure is it?

Your information is stored on our in-house database which only our employees and agents can access. This, or the dynamics of the Internet may mean that information is sent electronically to servers outside of the country where you originally entered the information. In addition, that information may be used, stored and processed outside the country where you entered that information. While there is a risk that countries to which information is transferred will not be subject to an information protection regime as rigorous as that of the UK, we will always take steps to ensure that your information is treated securely and adequately protected in accordance with this privacy policy.

Unfortunately, no data transmission can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make our best effort to ensure its security on our systems. Agents or contractors who in the course of providing services to L’Oréal have access to information which you give to us are required to keep that information secure and confidential and are not permitted to use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services which they are performing for L’Oréal.
