Younique, LLC, Younique International Holdings, LLC, and Younique DISC Corporation are companies organized under the laws of the State of Utah (referred to herein as “Younique,” “we,” “us,” and “our”), understand the importance of privacy of individuals (referred to herein as “users” and “you”). This Privacy Notice applies to information collection and use, including while you are visiting and using our website (located at https://www.youniqueproducts.com) (the “Site”), our mobile applications (the “Apps”), or our other services that reference this Privacy Notice (the “Services”). Please note that, for the purposes of European data protection laws, Younique is also the “data controller” (that is, the company responsible for, and which controls the processing of, your personal information collected in accordance with this Privacy Notice).
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, TikTok, 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 distributor 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 distributor, 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 distributors, 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.
The provision of PII by you is necessary in order for us to fulfill 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 distributors, government entities and regulatory bodies, those with whom you have requested us to share information, and 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 distributor 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 distributors to help them establish and maintain a relationship with you. If you are a Younique distributor, your name, location, contact details, and performance may be shared with other Younique distributors. 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 DISTRIBUTORS. However, Younique distributors agree, as specified in our Younique Independent distributor Agreement, to comply with all applicable privacy laws and regulations.
Notwithstanding any other provision of this Privacy Notice to the contrary, we reserve the right to disclose and use your PII if we believe that we are required or permitted to do so: (a) to our professional advisors, including lawyers, accountants, tax advisors, and auditors; (b) to debt collection agencies and other parties that assist with debt-recovery functions; (c) by law; (d) in response to legal process (for example, in response to a court order or a subpoena); (e) in response to a law enforcement agency’s request; (f) to enforce our other terms, conditions, or policies; (g) to protect our operations; (h) to protect the rights, privacy, safety, or property of Younique, you, or others; and/or (i) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages we may sustain. For example, we may, to the fullest extent the law allows, disclose PII about you to law enforcement agencies to assist them in identifying individuals who have been or may be engaged in unlawful activities. We may also transfer your PII to a third party that acquires all or part of our assets or shares, or that succeeds us in carrying on all or part of our business, whether by merger, acquisition, reorganization, or otherwise.
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.
Depending on where you are located, you may have certain rights concerning your personal information, including the right to access, restrict the processing of, object to the processing of, correct, update, rectify, and receive a copy of (data portability) your personal information; or request that we erase or delete your personal information. You may also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory or regulatory authority.
Unless restricted by law, regulation, contract, or professional standards, Younique may transfer PII about you outside of the United States to other countries for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”), the United Kingdom (“UK”) or Switzerland, your PII will be transferred to countries outside of the EEA, the UK and/or Switzerland that may not provide a similar or adequate level of protection to that provided by the EEA, UK and/or Switzerland (including the United States). If you are a Younique distributor and you are located in the EEA, the UK and/or Switzerland your PII will be transferred to the U.S. as necessary for the performance of the distributor agreement entered into between you and Younique.
Individuals in the EEA, UK 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.
If you are a California resident you may have additional rights under the California Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) and California Privacy Rights Act (CPRA), including the right to (i) know the categories of personal information collected about you; (ii) know the source of the personal information collected about you; (iii) correct inaccurate information; (iv) limit the use and disclosure of sensitive personal information; and (v) request that we delete your personal information. Some of these rights may be subject to limitations. We will not discriminate against you for exercising these rights. For information about how to exercise these rights, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
California law requires that we tell you whether we collect any personal information that is described in California Civil Code Section 1798.80(e), which includes personal information, such as name, contact information, physical characteristics, credit card or billing information, and health or medical information. We collect personal information described in Section 1798.80(e). This information is already described in the personal information we process section above.
We do not “sell” or “Share” (as those terms are defined in the CCPA and /or CPRA) your personal information or sensitive personal information. This notice describes the categories of personal information we collect, the sources of that information, the purpose for collection (which includes for “business purposes” under the CCPA and/or CPRA), the categories of third parties to whom personal information is disclosed, and our deletion and retention policies. If you have questions or would like to exercise your rights under the CCPA or CPRA, please contact email@example.com
Younique maintains reasonable physical, administrative, and technical safeguards to protect PII from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Our personnel and the personnel of our affiliates are provided access to PII about you only if they have a need to know the information in connection with a legitimate business purpose, such as (a) the provision of services to you or (b) to help identify other services that Younique and its affiliates offer that may be of interest or use to you.
We will only keep your personal information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, or as necessary to resolve disputes.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider applicable legal requirements, the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information, and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means.
