What Information Do We Collect?
- We collect information, including PII, from you when you register on the Site, place an order, enter a contest or sweepstakes, respond to a survey or communication such as e-mail, or participate in other Site features.
- When ordering or registering, we may ask you for your name, e-mail address, mailing address, phone number, credit card information or other information. You may, however, visit our Site anonymously.
- We also collect information names and delivery addresses about gift recipients so that we can fulfill gift purchases. The information we collect about gift recipients is not used for marketing purposes.
- Like many websites, we use various tracking technologies (including “cookies”) to enhance your experience and gather information about visitors and visits to our Site. See below for more information about our automatic collection practices. This information is collected from you primarily by you providing it to us. For example, when you complete forms on our Site or elsewhere in order to register, place orders for our products and services, enter contests or promotions or respond to surveys or marketing communications and in email or telephone correspondence with us. It is collected automatically in the case of information stored in “cookies,” for example when you surf the Site or use certain other Site features. We may also obtain information about you from other people, such as your name and delivery address where they purchase products for you.
- If you are an EU Individual, please review our sections below for additional information about the legal bases and other details regarding the collection and processing your PII.

What are Legal Bases for our Collection and Processing of EU Individuals’ PII?
We only collect and further process the Personal Data of EU Individuals when we have a legal basis to do so.
Depending on the purpose of collection and use, the legal basis for processing your information is either that it’s necessary:
- to perform a contract to which you are party or take steps at your request before entering into a contract (Contract);
- to comply with our legal obligations (Legal Obligations);
- for our legitimate interests or those of a third-party, which are not overridden by your interests or fundamental rights and freedoms (Legitimate Interests); and/or
- because we have obtained your specific, informed, unambiguous consent (Consent).
Our legitimate interests and those of relevant third-parties include the operation and development of the applicable businesses, including, direct marketing and maintaining security and integrity.
- Legitimate Interest. In many cases, the purposes we have described simply represent our legitimate business interests and the processing is proportionate and reasonable to achieve them and does not override your interests, fundamental rights or freedoms. This includes the interests described throughout this policy among others such as our use of your PII for: management of the customer relationship; improving and managing your use and the experience of using our Site, products, and services; personalizing the user experience of our Site; ensuring the security of our Site; providing you with services, products, and information through combining data we collect from you with other data that we receive from you and other sources; ensuring the efficiency of our customer service; communicating with you about products, services, offers, benefits, events, carrying out studies and statistics; and letting you know about topics that interest you; and communicating important information to you about fraud.
- Legal Obligations. We process certain of your PII in order to comply with laws and in the event of litigation or other legal actions.
- Consent. In some cases we collect PII based on your freely given consent. When doing so, we will inform you of the purpose of the processing and you are free to withdraw consent at any time.

Notice to non-U.S. Site users
If you are from a non-U.S. country, please be aware that the information you submit to us is being sent by you directly to a location operated by us in the United States for collection and further processing by us. The data protection laws in the United States may differ from those of the country in which you are located.
If you are an EU Individual, please note that since we are collecting the information directly from you (or from individuals who purchase goods for you for personal purposes), this does not involve our transferring your information to the United States.
Statutory Rights of EU Individuals
If you are an EU Individual, upon request, free of charge, you have the right to:
- obtain confirmation as to whether we process your PII;
- access and obtain a copy of the PII we hold about you;

How Your PII is Secured and Protected
Grande Cosmetics implements reasonable administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect your PII from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. Your PII is contained behind reasonably secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. Regardless of any such precautions taken in good faith by visitors or by us, security on the Internet is imperfect, and we cannot warrant the protection of any information visitors transmit to us, which visitors do voluntarily and at their own risk.
For How Long do we Store your Information?
If you are an EU Individual, we will delete your PII once it is no longer proportionate for us to store it for the purposes of the processing in accordance with our applicable data record retention period.
Where your PII relates to a contract, we will retain it for six years from the end of the contract, being the period when the time limit for claims has expired (unless a claim is made and the information is required for the claim).
Otherwise, if you are a customer, we will retain it for three 3 years since our last communication from you.
If you are not a customer, we will retain it for eighteen (18) months.
This is subject to any legal or regulatory requirement to retain the information for a minimum period.
Linking to Other Sites
About Children's Privacy
The Site is intended for general audiences, and we do not knowingly seek or collect PII from children under the age of eighteen (18). In accordance with the Child Online Privacy Protection Act, in the event that we learn that we have collected PII from a child under age thirteen (13) without verification of parental consent, we will delete that information as quickly as possible. If you believe that we might have any PII from or about a child, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Your California Privacy Rights
We may from time to time elect to share certain information about you collected by us on the Site with third-parties for those third-parties’ direct marketing purposes. California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents who have supplied personal information, as defined in the statute, to us to, under certain circumstances, request and obtain certain information regarding our disclosure, if any, of PII to third-parties for their direct marketing purposes. If this applies, you may obtain the categories of PII shared and the names and addresses of all third-parties that received PII for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately prior calendar year (e.g., requests made in 2019 will receive information about 2018 sharing activities) or to request to opt-out of such future sharing. To make such a request, please provide sufficient information for us to determine if this applies to you, attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response. You may make this request in writing at: email@example.com.
