PRIVACY AND TERMS


Privacy Policy

At Maritime Beauty Supply Company Limited (“Maritime Beauty”), we are committed to respecting your privacy and ensuring the protection of your personal information. This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) applies to Maritime Beauty retail locations and our family of websites (each a “Site”) and describes how we collect and use the personal information of our customers and when we share it with third parties. By supplying your personal information to Maritime Beauty or by using a Site, you acknowledge and agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. 

Collection of Personal Information

When you use a Site or visit a store, create an account with us, register for classes, purchase our products or services, or make customer service inquiries, we may collect personal information (information which can be used to identify an individual) such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number, professional cosmetology licence number, credit card number or other personal information.

Maritime Beauty may also receive personal information from our business partners and other third parties, provided that such third parties are authorized to share data about you and confirm to us that you have permitted them to share such information or as otherwise permitted by law. In the event that you provide personal information of persons other than yourself, prior to disclosing such information, you agree to obtain their consent to the disclosure, and use by us, of such personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. 

In addition to the information you provide, Maritime Beauty collects information about how and when you use a Site. This information may include your IP address, domain name, browser type and version being used, referring website address, type of operating system, and other information about the devices you use to access a Site. This data is used by us in order to operate and improve each Site, maintain the quality of our services and generate statistics regarding use of each Site. For example, we keep track of the sites and pages our customers visit within a Site in order to track where traffic comes from and how and where it flows. This helps us to determine what products and services are the most popular and enables us to offer recommendations for products and services that may be of interest to you. 

We may also collect or compile aggregated information of our customers and Site users so that it does not identify any individual, such as demographic statistics, numbers of users and user access times. To the extent that such information is not considered personal information under applicable law, we may share such information or any other non-personal information with third parties for any lawful purpose.

Cookies and Targeted Advertising 

When you use a Site, Maritime Beauty and our service providers may collect information using cookies and similar tracking technologies to collect information about your browsing behavior over time and across different websites. This information may be used to improve our website, personalize your experience and offer you recommendations or other advertisements that may be of interest to you.  For example, we use cookies to save you time by recalling information you have recorded on a Site, such as your billing or shipping address, and your preferences so that when you return to the same Site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved and you can easily use the features that you customized. 

Companies that place advertising on a Site may use cookies or other tracking technologies to collect information about your online browsing behavior in order to provide advertising that may be of interest to you on other websites you visit.  If you would like more information about this practice or how you may opt-out of receiving interest-based advertisements, please visit the Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada website as at http://youradchoices.ca/choices.

You can set your browser to accept or reject specific cookies or delete cookies that have been stored on your computer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not have access to certain features or functions of a Site.

Sharing your Personal Information
Maritime Beauty may share your personal information with employees, affiliates, partners and service providers, in order for such parties to provide services in relation to the functions described in the previous section. We prohibit any third parties from using your personal information except to provide these services to Maritime Beauty, and they are contractually required to maintain the confidentiality of such personal information. 

We may also disclose your personal information: (a) when you have given us your consent to disclose your personal information for a designated purpose; (b) in connection with a business transaction (e.g. a sale, financing, merger or amalgamation of Maritime Beauty, or a lease of its assets), provided that the personal information disclosed is used solely for purposes related to the transaction and in accordance with this Privacy Policy; (c) in connection with a government inquiry; or (d) when permitted or required by law. 

Maritime Beauty does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties. Maritime Beauty may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you, if you have provided consent to be contacted for such purposes. In those cases, your personal information will not be transferred to the third party. As noted above, we may share we may aggregated or anonymized information or any other non-personal information with third parties for any lawful purpose.

Security of your Personal Information

Maritime Beauty is committed to ensuring the protection of your personal information. We maintain appropriate physical (e.g. locked filing cabinets, alarm systems), technological (e.g. passwords, encryption), and organizational (e.g. limiting access on a “need to know” basis, training, agreements) security safeguards to protect your personal information. For example, we secure the personal information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information, such as a credit card number, is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol. 

You can set your browser to accept or reject specific cookies or delete cookies that have been stored on your computer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not have access to certain features or functions of a Site.

You can help protect the security of your personal information. For instance, never give out your password or log in information, since this is what is used to access your account or registration information. Also, remember to log out of your account and close your browser window when you finish using a Site. 

Retention Period

We retain your personal information only as long as it is necessary to satisfy the purpose for which it was collected or for such period as required by law.

Links to Other Websites

Maritime Beauty is not responsible for third party websites accessed via a Site, for the privacy practices of such third parties or for the content of their websites. We encourage you to review the privacy statements or policies of websites you choose to link to from a Site so that you can understand how those websites collect, use and disclose your information. 

Changes to this Privacy Statement

Please note that we may update and amend this Privacy Policy from time to time by posting an updated Privacy Policy and we encourage you to review it on a regular basis.
