Collection of personal information
We may collect information about you in a number of ways. For example, if you decide to complete a user registration form or online survey, or sign up to receive communications from us, you may be asked to provide certain information such as your contact information (name, email address, mailing address, and telephone number), age group, gender, and product and/or cosmetic concerns, and the brands and products you use. If you decide to place an order, we will also need to know your delivery and billing address, credit/debit card number and expiration date and will collect and/or generate information about your transaction history and interaction with the site. To protect your personal information, users registering at theinfusionist.co.uk must also enter a user name/email address and password.  This information is referred to in this privacy policy as "personally identifiable information". 

When you submit your personally identifiable information on theinfusionist.co.uk, you are giving your consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of your personal information as set forth in this privacy policy.

Use of collected information
If you have elected to provide us with your personally identifiable information (e.g., by registering on theinfusionist.co.uk, emailing our customer service department, or placing an order) we will use that information to provide you with the relevant service e.g. respond to your email or fulfil your order including processing payments. We may also provide you with service related announcements concerning theinfusionist.co.uk or contact you regarding your customer service requests or your order. For example, all registered users will receive a welcome email to confirm their registration. These types of communications are necessary to serve you, respond to your concerns, and to provide the high level of customer service that theinfusionist.co.uk offers its customers.  We may share your personally identifiable information within other group companies to assist us with these purposes so as to provide you with great customer service. 

We may use the information you provide, as well as information about your transaction history that we collect, in aggregate form (i.e. in a form from which you cannot be identified) for internal business purposes, such as generating statistics and developing marketing plans. We may collect, store, or accumulate such aggregated information concerning our visitors' use of theinfusionist.co.uk, such as information regarding which of our pages are most popular. We may share or transfer such aggregated information with or to our group companies, licensees, and partners for these or similar purposes.

To the extent that you have provided us with any 'sensitive personal data' (such as information relating to health issues) we, and our service providers, will only use this information for the purposes of responding to any related queries or otherwise with your consent.  By providing us with this information you explicitly agree to this usage.  Other circumstances may arise where we would like to use your ‘sensitive personal data’ in sharing your stories about our products but we will only do so where you have given us your consent for such use.

Marketing communications
