How do we protect your personal information?
We do several things to keep our data secure, which are considered best practice in the IT security industry. Such measures include, for example, limiting access to personal information only to employees and authorised service providers who need to know such information for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice, as well as other administrative, technical and physical safeguards, including firewalls and encryption measures.
While we endeavour to protect our systems, website, operations and information against unauthorised access, use, modification and disclosure, due to the inherent nature of the Internet as an open global communications vehicle and other risk factors, we cannot guarantee that any information, during transmission or while stored on our systems, will be safe from intrusion by others, such as hackers.
Beaucon Skincare takes reasonable steps to:
a. make sure that the personal information we collect, use and disclose is accurate, complete and up-to-date;
b. protect the personal information that we hold from misuse and loss and from unauthorised access, modification or disclosure; and
c. where permitted by law, destroy or permanently anonymise personal information that is no longer needed for purposes for which it was collected.
Beaucon Skincare’s credit card transactions are fulfilled by an authorised banking institution. When collecting credit card information for online purchases, Beaucon Skincare offers secured server transactions that encrypt your information in transit to help prevent others from accessing it. Personal information is stored on servers that are protected by appropriate safeguards, and will be accessible by authorised employees and agents who require access relating to their responsibilities. Your credit card details are encrypted and then removed from our system once your order has been dispatched.
We don’t usually collect unsolicited personal information. Where we receive unsolicited personal information, we’ll determine if it would have been permissible to collect that personal information if it had been solicited. If we determine that collection would not have been permissible, to the extent permitted by law, we’ll destroy or anonymise that personal information as soon as practicable.
Beaucon Skincare will generally provide individuals with the option of not identifying themselves when entering into transactions when it is lawful and practicable to do so. However, on many occasions, we will not be able to do this. For example, we will need your address to deliver any products purchased through our website.
How long do we keep your personal information?
We will only retain your personal information for as long as necessary for the purpose for which that data was collected and to the extent permitted by applicable laws. When we no longer need to use personal information, we will remove it from our systems and records and/or take steps to anonymise it so that you can no longer be identified from it.
