You have the right to withdraw consent to marketing at any time by contacting us.

You can stop receiving our marketing messages at any time by following the unsubscribe link in a promotional email, or by e-mailing us at customer.service@beautypie.com.

SMS marketing messages are managed by Attentive and are also subject to their Terms and Conditions and Privacy Policy. You can unsubscribe from the SMS marketing messages at any time by following the process set out in Attentive's Terms and Conditions or by emailing us at customer.service@beautypie.com.

We may (like many other businesses) show you our advertising when you visit other sites. Where this takes place, it may be based on information that we hold about you (for example, where you browse products on our website) and advertising technologies, for instance, ad tag, cookies, pixels, identifiers and web beacons. For more information, or to opt out of of having your web browsing activity used for behavioural advertising purposes, please see the Cookies section below.

We may also work other third parties to show you personalised advertising on third-party sites and platforms (such as Instagram). As part of this, we or the third party platform may match information about you to allow us to learn about your interests and personalise advertising. For more information about this advertising, or to opt out of seeing these types of ads, please visit these third-party sites and platforms.

Sometimes, we use information about our customers to target advertisements on third party platforms (such as Instagram or TikTok) that look similar to our customers, based on the platforms’ own data. To learn more about Interest-Based Advertising or to opt-out of this type of advertising by those third parties that are members of self-regulatory programs such as the Network Advertising Initiative, please visit the NAI’s website which will allow you to opt out of Interest-Based Advertising by one, or all, NAI members

Children

This website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.

If we become aware that we have collected Personal Information from a child under the age of 13 without parental or guardian consent, we will delete that information.

If you are under 18 but over 13 please make sure you ask your parents or guardians for permission before sending any information to us.

Your Information and International Transfer

We and many of our suppliers work in countries outside of the UK or EUs. This sometimes involves sharing your data outside the UK or EU.

Whenever we transfer your personal data out of the UK, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:

  • We will only transfer your personal data to countries that have been deemed to provide an adequate level of protection.

  • Where we use certain service providers, we may use specific contracts or other transfer tools approved for use in the UK which give personal data the same protection it has in the UK.

Please Contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal data.

Security

We have put in place security measures to prevent your personal data from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorised way, altered or disclosed. We also limit access to your personal data to a ‘need to know’ basis. They will only process your personal data on our instructions and they are subject to a duty of confidentiality. We always use industry-standard encryption technologies when transferring and receiving consumer data exchanged with our Website.

Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and we have no control over the public network through which personal information may be sent to our website. Once we receive your transmission, we will do our best to protect its security on our systems. We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected personal data breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.

Ordering online using your credit card details can be just as safe as ordering goods over the telephone. Where we have one, our Website will display any issued Secure Server Digital Certificate by a relevant online Certification Authority such as VeriSign.

How We Long We Keep Data For

We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for.

We always consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk unauthorised use of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.

If you wish to exercise any of your rights, please contact us at customer.service@beautypie.com and clearly explain the information you are requesting.

We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity. This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it.

We try to respond to requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is complex or you have made several requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
