FOR MARKETING AND CUSTOMER INSIGHT PURPOSES

We use your information for customer insight and marketing purposes. In some cases we will purchase information from 3rd Parties, but this usually aggregated data and does not normally directly identify you. We will also keep a record of your social media account name and information you make available to us via your social media account settings when you connect your social media account to ours, by messaging us, liking or following a page, tagging us in post or commenting on our posts.

Personalising your digital experience

Sometimes, we use your personal data such as your browsing history, username and purchases to personalise our Websites, online media and communications so they’re more relevant to you, giving you a better online experience. We do this through our use of Cookies and, where appropriate, information we have gathered about you from other interactions (e.g. products you buy or browse, or links that you have clicked on) or other sources (e.g. Huda VIP membership, including clubs that you have joined). For example, we may greet you by name, show search results that reflect things most likely to be of interest to you and show you content that’s more relevant to you and the things you have previously shown an interest in.

Personalisation, can I opt out and how do I do it?

Yes, but we believe it’ll result in your online experience being less personal and relevant to you. The content and search results you see will be generic rather than related to your interests. Personalising your online experience doesn’t affect the marketing options you have selected, it’s to offer you a service personalised to your needs. If you have an account, you can email the contact details given below with your request. If you’re not a registered customer, information held in our Cookies may be used to select content that we feel is more relevant for you. To prevent this, you can clear your cookies.

Where we process information on the basis that it is important for us as a business to do it, we will consider your interests also. We will weigh up our business interests with your interests to ensure they are fairly balanced. You can contact us for further information on this.

HOW WE SECURE YOUR INFORMATION

We take great care to ensure the security of our Websites and your personal information. To ensure that we keep your information secure we use technical security measures such as encryption, access controls, firewalls and logging, and organisational security controls such as security policies and procedures, awareness training for employees and 3rd party vendor assessments.

To take full advantage of all security features you should use an up-to-date browser. To further ensure your personal information is safe, please note, we will never ask a customer to confirm any debit or credit card details via email.

WHO DO WE SHARE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION WITH?

We’ll always conduct a full review of our suppliers’ processes and procedures including storage solutions for our data. To ensure adequacy when sending your data outside of the UK and EEA, we put in place contracts based on the standard EU model contract clauses to guarantee adequacy, we also use alternative safeguards where standard EU model contract clauses are not suitable.

  • We may share your information internally within the Huda Beauty group, including other brands owned by Huda Beauty, on a need to know basis when required for our business to function.
  • We may share your information externally with our core service providers when required for our business to function. These include for example companies who help us provide our Websites, pick and pack orders, make deliveries, print materials or provide customer support services.
  • In connection with a sale or business transaction. If we decide to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganise our businesses in certain countries, this may involve us disclosing personal data to prospective or actual purchasers and their advisers, or receiving personal data from sellers and their advisers.
  • We may need to share personal data in order to protect ourselves against fraudulent claims and to manage insurance and legal claims.
  • We may need to share personal data to support our IT system providers to keep our systems secure. Each of the external companies we work with has been selected by us for their ability to provide what we need to our required specification, including their ability to handle sensitive data (like your personal information) securely and appropriately.
  • We may need to share personal data when we receive requests for information from government departments, the police and other enforcement agencies. If this happens, and there is a proper legal basis for providing your personal information, we will provide it to the organisation asking for it.
  • We may share your information with other partners when we have your consent to do so.

INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS OF PERSONAL DATA

Our products and services may be provided using resources and servers located in various countries around the world. It is possible that your personal data may be transferred across international borders including to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA) that do not have laws providing specific protection for personal data or that have different legal rules on data protection. In certain circumstances, courts, law enforcement agencies, regulatory agencies or security authorities in those other countries may be entitled to access your personal data. To address concerns about transfers from the UK or EEA to countries not considered adequate by the European Commission, we have implemented appropriate measures to protect your personal data. For example, we use standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission and binding corporate rules and we require the use of appropriate technical and organisational information security measures. As your data is stored safely and securely both inside and outside of the EEA, we cannot offer alternative storage solution if you wish to object to having your data stored outside of the EEA. To do this, you’ll need to close your account with Huda Beauty.

AUTOMATED PROCESSING OF YOUR INFORMATION

Your personal information may be processed with automated methods to understand which Huda Beauty outlet you usually shop at, whether you have been shopping recently or not, and which products you purchase or which you might be interested in hearing about in future. This data may include things like your age, gender and purchasing history or preferences. When your Personal Data is processed in this way it is used in summarised (by which we mean anonymised and aggregated) business reports, or to tailor news, offers and promotions we feel you will find most relevant. For example, to advise you of a promotion, event or product launch at a store that you shop at. This processing could determine whether or not you are included in tailored promotions or offers, or advised of Huda Beauty news, events or product launches.

If you are under the age of majority in your place of residence, you may use Huda Beauty products and services only with the consent of or under the supervision of your parent or legal guardian.

If the User is under the age of 13, the Service will be either blocked or redirected to a parental consent process. Consistent with the requirements of the US Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA), if we learn that a child under age 13 has provided personal data to or through the products or services without first receiving their parent’s verified consent, we will dispose of such personal data. If you believe we may have collected any information from a child under age 13, please Contact us.

HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR INFORMATION FOR?

  • We keep personal data for a variety of purposes and for a variety of time periods. The general guidelines for how long we keep personal data are based on what is necessary and proportionate in our business, taking into consideration how and why we collected it and with particular reference to legal obligations that apply to our business.
  • Where there is no legally defined time period for keeping data, we will keep your information for a time period based on relevant industry standards.
  • Where there is no relevant industry standard, we will use a time limit that allows us to serve you as customers but also ensures we don’t keep your personal information for longer than we need to.

SALE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

We do not sell your personal information for monetary consideration. However, California law may characterise our sharing of personal information with companies that provide services to us, such as companies that help us to market or advertise our products and services to you, as "sales”. We may “sell” or may have “sold” the following categories of personal information for valuable consideration to the third parties listed below:

FINANCIAL INCENTIVE

We may offer you various financial incentives such as discounts and special offers when you provide us with contact information and identifiers such as your name and email address. When you sign-up for our loyalty or professional programs, email list or other discounts and special offers, you opt-in to a financial incentive. You may withdraw from a financial incentive at any time by opting out from our emails or closing your loyalty or professional member account. Generally, we do not assign monetary or other value to personal information, however, California law requires that we assign such value in the context of financial incentives. In such context, the value of the personal information is related to the estimated cost of providing the relevant financial incentive(s) for which the information was collected.
