Privacy and Cookies Policy
Several functionalities, including the collection of Personal Information (as defined below), are controlled by the Distributor. As such, the Distributor shall be deemed to be the data controller for the purposes of this Privacy and Cookies Policy. Nu Skin does not have access to any of the information collected through the Websites.
This Privacy and Cookies Policy explains what information is collected by the Distributor and why it is collected; how that information will be used by the Distributor; and the choices offered by the Distributor, including how to access and update information.
What information is collected and why?
Information gathered online may be referred to as either anonymous or personally identifiable information.
Anonymous information refers to web site usage information that cannot be traced back to a specific individual, e.g., the total number of visitors to the Websites ("General Information"). General Information helps the Distributor determine general usage patterns and modify the Website in order to improve your experience. Such data is used only in the aggregate. Please note that the Websites use, at times, a technology nicknamed "cookies". Please see below for further information on cookies.
Personally identifiable information refers to specific information about a visitor, eg. his/her name, address, e-mail address, telephone number or birth date ("Personal Information"). You may elect to provide Personal Information to the Distributor in order for him/her to get in touch with you and provide you with information about Nu Skin. Such information might contain personalized or general information about Nu Skin, its products, its business opportunity; but also newsletters or alerts, invitations to upcoming events; or generally, information about any other related matters that the Distributor may deem to be of interest to you. You may unsubscribe to general promotional communications (either by email or by SMS) at any time. If you do so, then the Distributor will only provide you with personalized information about Nu Skin, its products and/or business opportunity, depending on your interest. Please note that the HTML emails sent to you may also contain Web Beacons and that, by providing your email address, you consent to the use of such Web Beacons. Please see below for further information on Web Beacons.
Please note that your Personal Information is treated with the utmost confidentiality and will not be passed on to third parties, unless there is a need to meet a legal requirement or to provide services requested by you.
