Younique may collect two different types of information: Personally Identifiable Information (“PII”) and Non-Personally Identifiable Information (“Non-PII”).
PII is information that identifies you as an individual or from which you are identifiable. This may include:
- information (such as your name, address, telephone number, email address, social media account information, including without limitation Facebook, Google+, and Instagram, birth date, taxpayer identification number and/or social security number, credit card information, billing address, IP address, images, purchase history, and shipping information) that you provide (i) by completing forms on the Site or the Apps, including any information you provide during the registration process to become a Younique Presenter or customer, or any information you provide to purchase products, or (ii) in connection with any Services, including if you register, upload, or submit any material via the Site or the Apps or enter into any competition or promotion we may sponsor;
- in connection with an account sign-in facility, your log-in and password details;
- the content of any communications you send to us, for example, to report a problem or to submit questions, concerns, or comments regarding the Site, the Apps, the Services, our products, or any related content, as well as your preferred method of communication; and
- information from surveys that we may, from time to time, run on the Site, the Apps, or in connection with the Services, for research purposes, if you choose to respond to or participate in such surveys.
If you are a Younique Presenter, we may also collect your commission and bonus information. PII may also be collected from, among other places, information you provide directly to us, information regarding products or services that Younique currently provides or has previously provided to you, or information Younique receives from our affiliated entities, other Younique Presenters, or third parties relating to the establishment of our relationship or the provision of services to you. This information can be received in any manner, including via in-person discussions, telephone conversations, and electronic or other written communications.
If you are a customer or the host of an in-person or online Younique party, your PII may be provided to us by the Younique Presenter who took your order or who attended a Younique party that you hosted or attended.
The provision of PII by you is necessary in order for us to fulfil our legal and contractual obligations with you and for the purposes identified below where in our legitimate interests. You are under no obligation to provide any such information. However, if you should choose to withhold requested information, we may not be able to provide you with certain services.
Unless we specifically request or invite it, we ask that you not send or otherwise disclose to us any information that is considered a “special category of personal data” under EU data protection laws (such as information related to your health). Where we specifically request such information, we will seek your prior explicit consent to do so. You are under no obligation to provide any such information and do so on a strictly voluntary basis to help Younique resolve any questions or complaints you have about our products. Younique will not use such information for any other purpose and will only retain it as long as necessary to resolve your question or complaint.
Non-PII is aggregate information. This may include demographic information, user behavior data from web interaction metrics tools, and any other information that does not reveal your identity. Non-PII may be connected to other information we collect from you.
Younique may use PII about you for the following purposes: (i) to establish or maintain our relationship with you; (ii) to contact you and respond to your requests and inquiries; (iii) to provide you with services you have requested; (iv) to keep you informed of products and services we think may be of interest to you; (v) to personalize your experience with us; (vi) to assist you while you use the Site, the Apps, or the Services; (vii) for business administration, including statistical analysis; (viii) to improve the Site, the Apps, or the Services by helping us to understand who uses the Site, the Apps, and/or the Services and how they are used; (ix) for fraud prevention and detection; and (x) to comply with applicable laws, regulations, and codes of practice.
Younique may share PII about you with others, such as our affiliates, other Younique Presenters, government entities and regulatory bodies, those with whom you have requested us to share information, third parties in order for them to provide us with services (including, for example, companies that provide us with technical support and assistance with respect to the Site, the Apps, or the Services, financial institutions who process payment for orders placed by you, our suppliers and other third parties who facilitate delivery of the products and services you have ordered, and third parties who assist us with research to help us improve the Site, the Apps, the Services, and our product offerings).
If you inquire about our products, services, or the Younique business opportunity, we may provide your contact details to a Younique Presenter in your local area to respond to your inquiry. Additionally, if you purchase Younique products or set up a customer account with us, we may share your name, location, contact details, and purchase history with Younique Presenters to help them establish and maintain a relationship with you. If you are a Younique Presenter, your name, location, contact details, and performance may be shared with other Younique Presenters. Additionally, PII about you may be shared with customers.
Younique requires third parties who perform services for us to agree to treat PII about you confidentially and securely and only for the purpose of performing services on our behalf. NOTE THAT THIS STATEMENT DOES NOT ADDRESS THE PRIVACY PRACTICES OR POLICIES OF OUR INDEPENDENT YOUNIQUE PRESENTERS. However, Younique Presenters agree, as specified in our Younique Independent Presenter Agreement, to comply with all applicable privacy laws and regulations.
Because Non-PII does not personally identify you, we reserve the right to use Non-PII, and to disclose Non-PII to third parties, for any purpose.
Under the Privacy Shield Frameworks, Younique will offer an individual the opportunity to choose (opt-out) whether PII about them will be disclosed to a third party or used for a purpose incompatible with the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by them, unless such choice is not required by law.
With respect to PII received under the Privacy Shield Frameworks, Younique is subject to the investigatory and enforcement authority of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. Under certain circumstances, we may be required to disclose PII in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Where a complaint relates to PII transferred or received pursuant to the Privacy Shield Frameworks, you should first contact Younique using the contact information provided below. We will investigate and attempt to resolve any questions or complaints you may have within 45 days of receipt. If Younique is unable to resolve your complaint through its internal processes or you are unsatisfied with the response, you may file a complaint with JAMS at https://www.jamsadr.com/file-an-eu-us-privacy-shield-or-safe-harbor-claim, at no cost to you.
Under certain circumstances, EEA and Swiss individuals may invoke binding arbitration to resolve a Privacy Shield related dispute. In order to invoke arbitration, you must take the following steps prior to initiating an arbitration claim: (1) raise your complaint directly with Younique and provide us the opportunity to resolve the issue; (2) make use of the independent dispute resolution mechanism, in this case JAMS; and (3) raise the issue through your relevant data protection authority and allow the U.S. Department of Commerce an opportunity to resolve the complaint at no cost to you. For more information on binding arbitration, see the U.S. Department of Commerce’s Privacy Shield Framework: Annex I (Binding Arbitration).
Individuals in the EEA and Switzerland have certain data subject rights which may be subject to limitations and/or restrictions. These rights include the right to: (i) request access to and rectification or erasure of their PII; (ii) obtain restriction of processing or to object to processing of their PII; and (iii) ask for a copy of their PII to be provided to them, or a third party, in a digital format. If you wish to exercise one of the above-mentioned rights, please send us your request to the contact details set out below. Individuals also have the right to lodge a complaint about the processing of their PII with their local data protection authority.
The California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”) provides individuals in California with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes those rights and how to exercise them.
Younique will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your rights under the CCPA.
Right to Deletion
California residents have the right to ask Younique to delete any personal information that Younique has collected about you. Upon receiving and confirming your verifiable consumer request (as described below under “How to Exercise Your Rights Under the CCPA”), Younique will delete your personal information from our records and tell our service providers to delete your personal information from their records.
In complying with your request to delete your personal information, we may erase some information and we may deidentify some information. In cases where we deidentify your information, we implement technical safeguards and business processes to prohibit reidentification and to protect against the inadvertent release of such information.
Please note that there are instances where Younique may not be able to comply with your deletion request if it is necessary for Younique to keep such information in order to, among other things, provide goods or services requested by you, maintain our ongoing business relationship with you, comply with our legal obligations, protect against fraudulent or illegal activity, or perform such other necessary activities as permitted under the CCPA.
Right of Access
California residents have the right to ask Younique to disclose certain information about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months. Upon receiving and confirming your verifiable consumer request, we will provide you with the following information:
- (a) the categories of personal information Younique has collected about you;
- (b) the categories of sources from which we collected your personal information;
- (c) the business or commercial purpose for which we collect or sell your personal information;
- (d) the categories of third parties with whom we share your personal information;
- (e) the specific pieces of personal information we have collected about you; and
- (f) whether we have sold or disclosed your personal information for a business purpose and, if so, (1) a list identifying the categories of personal information that each category of recipient purchased and (2) a list identifying the categories of personal information that each category of recipient obtained.
Please note that Younique will not retain any personal information that we do not normally keep as part of our regular business practices.
We will provide you with the requested information free of charge up to two (2) times in a 12-month period. We may elect not to respond to requests that are unfounded, repetitive, harassing, or excessive.
How to Exercise Your Rights Under the CCPA
If you are a California resident and wish to exercise any of your rights under the CCPA, please submit a request to Younique by either:
- Emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org; or
- Writing to us at:
- Younique, LLC
- Attn: Legal

Please include the following information in your request:
- Whether you want to access your data or have Younique delete your data.

We will use the information above to verify your identity to make sure we do not provide or delete your personal information in response to a fraudulent request. The more requested information you can provide us, the better we will be able to respond to your request. For your protection, we may reach out to you to ask for additional information to help us identify you or to verify that you want your information deleted. If we are unable to confirm that the individual making the request is the same person about whom we have collected personal information, we will not be able to complete your request.
We will typically provide the requested information or confirm that we have complied with your request to delete your personal information within 45 days. We will notify you within that time period if we will need additional time to process your request.

Younique maintains reasonable physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to protect PII from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction.
