JAN MARINI SKIN RESEARCH, INC. PRIVACY POLICY

Effective January 1, 2020

This Privacy Policy describes how Jan Marini Skin Research ("JMSR," "we," or “our”) may collect, use, process and/or share information about you and how you can exercise your privacy rights regarding that information. The Policy applies to persons who access our website www.janmarini.com and/or any social media platform(s), participate in our programs, or otherwise communicate with us as discussed below.  

By scrolling this page, clicking a link or continuing to browse our website, or accessing any social media platform pertaining to JMSR, you are consenting to our handling of your information as set forth in this Policy, including our use of cookies and tracking tools as described below.

(This Policy does not apply to residents of the European Union, whose personal information we do not collect or process.)

THE KINDS OF INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT

         When you use our services, we may collect certain personal information about you.  As used in this Privacy Policy, the term “personal information” has the same meaning given to the term by the California consumer Privacy Act (CCPA). Information that is aggregated, tokenized, or otherwise de-identified, so that it does not identify you as a specific individual, or information that is publicly available, is not “personal information.” 

These are the kinds of information we may collect:

Information you affirmatively provide to us. We collect your information through email communications by you or your response to our email communications, through information voluntarily provided by you in connection with our marketing efforts or events, through your inquiries through our website, your creation of an account with us, your ordering product, or through any other information voluntarily provided by you through any channel.  This information may include your name, contact information address, organizational connection (if any), or any other information you voluntarily provide to us.  Under such circumstances, we may keep a record of your contact information and may use your email address and any other information you provided to us, to respond to you or to provide the services you requested.

If you create an online account, we also collect your password as well as information regarding your interests and preferences. Purchase information is maintained in account form as required to engage in secure consumer friendly e-commerce. Unless specifically requested and you use the method that we identify for such purpose, please do not send us any personal or otherwise confidential information.   (Users may edit or change their personal information in their account by logging in and following the "edit this information" link in their account.)

Information we collect electronically. When you use our services, our servers may automatically capture information about you, such as the type of browser and operating system you are using, Internet Protocol (IP) address, the domain name of your internet service provider, which pages you visit on our site and how long you spend on each, and the unique number assigned to your server or internet connection.

If you connect with us over a social media network such as Facebook, LinkedIn, or Instagram, our systems may capture personal information from a particular network consistent with your privacy settings there.  That information could include your name, user name, user ID, profile photo, age range, friends and/or follower list, etc.  If your privacy settings allow such information to be shared, we will assume that network is authorized to share it with us.

We use cookies and website analytics to collect anonymized information about website usage by all of our visitors and to optimize and customize the shopping experience.  Please refer to our Cookie Notice below.

Our website also includes several trackers from third parties, which help us collect information about the preferences of people who visit our site.

HOW WE USE OR SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We do not sell, nor will we sell, personal information received by JMSR.  We do use your information as follows:

  • To provide services to you. We use your personal information to inform you of upcoming marketing events, industry developments, product characteristics and recommendations, and new products.
  • To respond to your inquiries or requests. We pride ourselves on our customer service and product expertise. When you contact us with questions, comments, or concerns, we will collect your personal information in order to serve you in a manner consistent with our high expectations.
  • To engage in marketing activities. We may add your personal information to our databases, including our subscriber and contact lists. This will allow us to deliver targeted marketing materials to you and to inform you of upcoming events and programs, new products, and other subjects of interest to you based on your contact(s) with us. 
  • To monitor the use of and improve our website. Site visit information is used only in aggregate form to help enhance the overall JMSR shopping experience and to personalize customer experience. As previously indicated, we also use cookies and Google Analytics for this purpose.
  • To assist in our marketing efforts.  We provide your contact information to a third party which assists us in sending bulk emails to existing customers.  This contact information includes only your email address. We require that third party to exercise reasonable care to protect your personal information and to adhere to all pertinent privacy laws, and we restrict the use of the information to the purposes for which it was provided.
  • To comply with valid legal requirements. We may access, preserve, and disclose your information and other information if we believe that doing so is required or appropriate to comply with valid legal requests, to protect your, our, or others’ rights, to enforce our policies or contracts, or to respond to you or at your direction to disclose the information.
  • Also, if you register for a co-hosted meeting or event with JMSR and an authorized provider, unless otherwise stated, we may share your registration and or attendance information with the declared co-hosting provider to facilitate event or meeting execution.

Limitations

We will make good faith efforts to provide you with access to your information.  However, there may be circumstances where we are unable to provide access, including, without limitation, where the information would compromise the privacy of others, where the burden or expense of providing access would be disproportionate to the risk to the privacy rights in question, or where the information is commercially proprietary.  If we determine that access should be restricted for any reason, we will provide you with the reason for that determination as well as a contact person for any further discussion of the issue. 

“DO NOT TRACK”

Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers.  DNT is a way for users to inform websites and services that they do not want certain information about their webpage visits collected over time and across websites or online services.  We do not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals.  For information about DNT, please visit hppts://allaboutdnt.com/.

We use cookies and website analytics for the following reasons:

  • To improve your experience on our site and platforms;
  • To carry out research and statistical analysis to help improve our content, products and services; and
  • To understand how visitors use our site. This includes navigating, scrolling, and looking at pages they access and content they open.

Cookies are small data files that are placed on the hard drive of your computer, tablet, smartphone or other device when you visit a website. They enhance shopping efficiency and allow us to recognize returning shoppers. Cookies may stay on your browser until they expire or you delete them. Some of them are erased when you close your browser window and some persist for a period of time. Further information about cookies and how they work is available at www.allaboutcookies.org. You can disable cookies by adjusting your browser settings, but some functions of our website may not function if you do. Please also note that while disabling a cookie may prevent the future collection of information, it will not prevent the use of information collected before the cookie was disabled.

We also use Google Analytics to collect information about visitor traffic and behavior. This allows us to identify usage trends and to improve the performance and content of our website. We do not use this tool to collect or store your personal information, and it cannot be used to identify who you are.

INDIVIDUALS UNDER THE AGE OF 16

We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose the personal information of individuals under the age of 18.  If we become aware that such an individual is submitting information to us without the consent of his or her parent(s) or legal guardian, we will delete the information from our database as soon as possible.  If you have reason to believe that we are collecting information about an individual under 16 years of age without parental consent, please email us immediately at privacy@ janmarini.com or phone us at (888) 695 – 2611 so that we can take appropriate action.

SECURITY

Protecting your security is very important to us. JMSR is a Verisign™ Secure Site. We use secure servers that utilize firewalls to protect your information, as well as the industry standard Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. Unfortunately, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Accordingly, while we employ commercially reasonable security measures to protect the information in our custody, we cannot absolutely guarantee the security of any information we may have collected or received from you or transmitted to you.  If you have reason to believe that your information is not secure, please notify us immediately by emailing us at privacy@janmarini.com or phoning us at (888) 695-2611. 

LINKS TO THIRD PARTIES

The JMSR website does provide links to other websites owned by other individuals or entities. For example, we provide links to our independent reseller affiliates to help direct consumers to JMSR resellers. Such a link is not an endorsement of that third party and/or its website, nor does it permit, involve, or constitute the sharing of your personal information.  Other websites may follow different policies and practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information, and we are not responsible for the information collection or privacy practices of others. This Privacy Policy does not address the privacy practices of any third party, nor does it imply that any third party's privacy practices are covered by this Privacy Policy.

DATA RETENTION

We will retain your information for as long as necessary to provide our services, or as otherwise permitted by law.  We will retain and use this information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

CHANGES TO THIS POLICY

We may change this Policy from time to time. A notice of any material changes will be posted in a clear and conspicuous manner on our website.  Please note that your continued use of our site after we have posted changes to this Policy will constitute your agreement to be bound by such changes.
