PRIVACY

This site is owned and operated by North American Beauty Events. Your privacy on the Internet is of the utmost importance to us. At North American Beauty Events, we want to make your experience online satisfying and safe. Because we gather certain types of information about our users, we feel you should fully understand the terms and conditions surrounding the capture and use of that information. This privacy statement discloses what information we gather and how we use it.

Definition of the Information North American Beauty Events gathers and tracksNorth American Beauty Events gathers two types of information about users:

  • Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions. These are voluntary submissions to receive our electronic newsletters and or user requests for information.
  • Information North American Beauty Events gathers through aggregated tracking information derived mainly by tallying page views throughout our site. This information allows us to better tailor our content to online visitors’ needs and to better understand the demographics of our audience. Under no circumstances does North American Beauty Events divulge any information about an individual user to a third party.

Children
Consistent with the Federal Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998 (COPPA), we will never knowingly request personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 13 without requesting parental consent.

Usage Tracking
North American Beauty Events tracks user traffic patterns throughout all of our sites. However, we do not correlate this information with data about individual users. North American Beauty Events does break down overall usage statistics according to a user’s domain name, browser type, and MIME type by reading this information from the browser string (information contained in every user’s browser).

Cookies
We may place a text file called a “cookie” in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it will enable us to relate your use of this site to information that you have specifically and knowingly provided. But the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can’t read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. North American Beauty Events uses cookies to track user traffic patterns (as described above).
You can refuse cookies by turning them off in your browser. If you’ve set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, you will receive the warning message with each cookie. You do not need to have cookies turned on to use this site. However, you do need cookies to participate actively in message boards, forums, polling and surveys.

Use of Information
North American Beauty Events uses any information voluntarily given by our users to enhance their experience in our network of sites, whether to provide interactive or personalized elements on the sites or to better prepare future content based on the interests of our users.

As stated above, we use information that users voluntarily provide in order to send out printed or electronic communications and to provide requested information. We send out email communications to subscribers on a regular schedule (depending on the type of communication), and occasionally send out special announcements when we think subscribers might be particularly interested in something we are doing.
North American Beauty Events may share communication mailing lists with third parties, including advertisers, sponsors or partners.
When we use tracking information to determine which areas of our sites users like and don’t like based on traffic to those areas, we do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. This helps us continue to build a better service for you.

Security

North American Beauty Events operates secure data networks protected by industry standard protection systems. Our security and privacy policies are periodically reviewed and enhanced as necessary and only authorized individuals have access to the information provided by our customers.

Opt-out Policy

We give users options wherever necessary and practical. Such choices include:

  • Opting not to register to receive our electronic communications.
  • Opting not to participate in certain interactive areas, which completely alleviates the need to gather any personally identifiable information from our users

If we decide to change our privacy policy, we will post those changes on this page so that you are always aware of what information we collect, how we use it, and under what circumstances we disclose it.
