Blue Beautifly LLC Privacy Policy

Blue Beautifly (also referred to as “we”, “us”, or “our”) is committed to protecting the privacy of its customers (also referred to as “you” or “your”), and therefore does not sell or rent your information to any third party entity. Further, we do not share the information with any third parties for their direct marketing purposes.

We have subscribed to and will comply with the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield Framework (the “Framework”) as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce regarding the processing of your Personal Information (as defined below) that is transferred from the European Economic Area (“EEA”) to the United States. We have certified to the Department of Commerce that we adhere to the Privacy Shield Principles (the “Principles”).  This Privacy Policy is intended to help you learn about how we handle Personal Information that is collected in the EEA and transferred to us in the U.S.

This Privacy Policy “(“Policy” or “Privacy Policy”) describes how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from www.bluebeautifly.com (“the Site” or “our Site”).

If there is any conflict between this Policy and the Principles, the Principles will govern. To learn more about the Framework, please visit www.privacyshield.gov. You can view our certification at https://www.privacyshield.gov/list.  Our commitments under the Privacy Shield are subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the United States Federal Trade Commission.

SECURITY
Keeping your information secure is among our top priorities.  As such, we use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) technology to encrypt all of the information that you provide to us before it is transmitted to us so that it can be safeguarded as much as possible from being read or recorded as it travels over the Internet.  The unbroken key icon or closed lock icon that appears at the bottom of your Internet browser’s window or in the URL bar field indicates that the information is sent securely.  These icons will appear when you are placing an order on our Site.  In addition, you will see our Site address change slightly, from http: to https: indicating a secure server connection is being used.  The computers that store the information you provide to us are located in a separate facility, which employs firewall and security technology.  We employ these procedures to help protect that information from unauthorized access, destruction, use, modification or disclosure.

CUSTOMER ACCOUNTS
You may create an account on our Site with a username and password. We recommend exercising extreme care in protecting your password information and not sharing any of your passwords publicly.  Our staff will never ask for your password.  You are responsible for maintaining the strict confidentiality of your account password, and you are responsible for any access to or use of the Site by you or another person or entity using your password, whether or not such access or use has been authorized by or on behalf of you.

Information that you provide to us will be stored and processed on our service provider’s computers in the United States. The laws on holding such information in the United States may vary and be less stringent than laws of your state or country. We will use commercially reasonable efforts to hold and transmit the information that you provide to us in a safe, confidential and secure environment. If you object to the information that you provide to us being transferred or used in this manner please do not register with or use the Site.

PERSONAL INFORMATION WE COLLECT
When you visit the Site, we automatically collect certain information about your device, including information about your web browser, IP address, time zone, and some of the cookies that are installed on your device. Additionally, as you browse the Site, we collect information about the individual web pages or products that you view, what websites or search terms referred you to the Site, and information about how you interact with the Site. We refer to this automatically collected information as “Device Information.”

We collect Device Information using the following technologies:

  • “Cookies” are small data files that are placed on your device or computer and often include an anonymous unique identifier. Cookies enable the Site or service provider’s systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain types of information. They are also used to help us understand your preferences based on previous or current activity on the Site, enabling us to provide you with improved services. We also use cookies to help us compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interactions so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. A cookie cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses.  Through your browser settings, you can choose to have your computer warn you each time a cookie is being sent, or you can choose to reject all cookies.  Since every browser is a little different, look at your browser’s Help Menu to learn the correct way to modify your settings.  If you reject cookies, you may not be able to enjoy some features that enhance your user experience.  For more information about cookies, and how to disable cookies, visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
  • “Log files” track actions occurring on the Site, and collect data including your IP address, browser type, Internet service provider, referring/exit pages, and date/time stamps.
  • “Web beacons,” “tags,” and “pixels” are electronic files used to record information about how you browse the Site.

 

Additionally when you make a purchase or attempt to make a purchase through the Site, we collect certain information from you, including your name, billing address, shipping address, payment information (including credit card numbers), email address, and phone number.  We refer to this information as “Order Information.”

When we talk about “Personal Information” in this Privacy Policy, we are talking both about Device Information and Order Information.

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
We use the Order Information that we collect generally to fulfill orders, process returns, handle customer service situations, provide you with information that may be of interest to you (including special offers), send editorial content, and solicit feedback for internal marketing and promotional purposes.  We use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns).
