BELLAMI PRIVACY POLICY

We’re based in CALIFORNIA in the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Many of our suppliers, affiliates and partners are based all over the world – as are many of our website visitors and valued customers. As a result, if you use https://www.bellamihair.com/  (the “Site”), it will involve transferring your personal information from your country to a country which might not have the same degree of protection in place. Please read the Privacy Policy carefully to understand how your personal information is collected, used, and shared when you visit or make a purchase from our Site and also about how the law protects your rights.

For EU residents, special considerations may apply as set forth below.

  • Publicly-available sources such as data in the public domain.

We may also automatically collect Technical and Device Information about your equipment, browsing actions and patterns. We collect this personal information by using cookies and other similar technologies. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when websites set or access cookies. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of our Site might become inaccessible or might not function properly. For more information about the cookies we use, please see our Cookie Policy.

HOW WE USE AND SHARE YOUR INFORMATION

We only use your personal information to perform our contractual obligations with you and when the law permits. We collect your data so that we can:

  • enforce our rights and/or ensure your compliance with our Terms of Use;
  • fulfill any orders placed through the Site (including processing your payment information, arranging for shipping, and providing you with invoices and/or order confirmations);
  • communicate with you regarding your purchase order or other similar activity on the Site
  • When in line with the preferences you have shared with us, provide you with information or advertising relating to our products or services;
  • use the Device Information that we collect to help us screen for potential risk and fraud (in particular, your IP address), and more generally to improve and optimize our Site (for example, by generating analytics about how our customers browse and interact with the Site, and to assess the success of our marketing and advertising campaigns);
  • where it’s necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights don’t override those interests;
  • share your data with third-party vendors, service providers, contractors and agents in connection with the performance of services on our behalf, as needed to carry out their work for us, which may include identifying and serving advertisements, providing mailing services, providing financial services, web hosting, or providing analytic services. These service providers are prohibited from using your information except as needed to perform our work or as required by law, although we may permit them to use aggregate information which does not identify you. For example, we use Shopify to power our online store--you can read more about how Shopify uses your personal information here: https://www.shopify.com/legal/privacy. We also use Google Analytics to help us understand how our customers use the Site--you can read more about how Google uses your personal information here:  https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy/.  You can also opt-out of Google Analytics here:  https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout; and
  • disclose your personally identifiable information as required by law and when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on our site;

We may also share your information with another business if we buy/sell any business or assets from/to them, or are otherwise combined with that business (including during any negotiations with them). If a change happens to our business, then the new owners may use your personal information in the same way as set out in this privacy notice.

Generally, we don’t rely on consent as a legal basis for processing your personal information (but where we do, you’ve got the right to withdraw consent at any time by contacting us.)

HOW WE STORE YOUR DATA

We take precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the Site,  your personal information is protected both online and offline according to generally accepted industry standards. The computers/servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment.

While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information.

No method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. If you have any questions about security on our Site, you may contact us at  info@bellami.com.

HOW WE RETAIN YOUR DATA

When you create an account or place an order through the Site, we will maintain your personal information for our records unless and until you ask us to delete this information.

We’ll only keep your personal information for as long as reasonably necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements. We might keep your personal information for a longer period in the event of a complaint or if we reasonably believe there’s a prospect of litigation in respect to our relationship with you.

To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised 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, and the applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or other requirements.

Please contact us at  info@bellami.com for details of retention periods for different aspects of your personal information.

MARKETING AND PROMOTIONAL OFFERS FROM US

We want you to be able to make choices about how we use your personal information, especially when it comes to marketing and advertising.

You’ll receive marketing communications from us if you’ve requested information from us (e.g. by signing up to our newsletter) or if you’ve purchased products from us and haven’t opted out of receiving marketing.

Either way, if at any time you change your mind and don’t want to receive marketing messages from us, you can tell us to stop by:

  • Unsubscribing (just click on the ‘unsubscribe’ link in any message we send you and follow the instructions – please note that it might take a short period of time to process your unsubscribe request) or
  • Sending an email to info@bellami.com, with ‘Unsubscribe’ as the subject of the email.

BEHAVIORAL ADVERTISING

Please note that we do not alter our Site’s data collection and use practices when we see a Do Not Track signal from your browser.

YOUR RIGHTS

Under certain circumstances, you have the right to:

  • Request access to your personal information. This enables you to receive a copy of the personal information we hold about you and to check that we’re lawfully processing it.
  • Request correction of the personal information that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you corrected, though we might need to verify the accuracy of the new information you provide to us.
  • Request erasure of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal information where there’s no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal information where you’ve successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we’re required to erase your personal information to comply with local law. Note, however, that we might not always be able to comply with your request for erasure because of specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.
  • Object to processing of your personal information where we’re relying on our own legitimate interest (or that of a third party) and there’s something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You’ve also got the right to object where we’re processing your personal information for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.
  • Request restriction of processing of your personal information. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal information in the following scenarios:
    • If you want us to establish the information’s accuracy.
    • Where our use of the information is unlawful but you don’t want us to erase it.
    • Where you need us to hold the information even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims.
    • You’ve objected to our use of your information but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.
  • Request the transfer of your personal information to you or to a third party. We’ll provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal information in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use, or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.
  • Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal information. However, this won’t affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We’ll advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
  • Lodge a complaint with the relevant regulator if you feel that your personal information hasn’t been handled correctly, or you’re not happy with the way we’ve responded to anything you’ve asked us to do with your personal information. If you’re based outside of the United States of America, you’ve got the right to complain to the relevant data protection authority in your country of residence. For EU citizens, HERE’S a list of EU data protection authorities with their contact details.

If you make a request, we have one month to respond to you. If you would like to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at our email: info@bellami.com

Call us at: 805-915-5687

Or write to us: 3850 Royal Ave, Suite A, Simi Valley, CA, 93063, United States

DATA TRANSFERS

Your personal information may be transferred to countries other than the country in which it was originally collected and your personal information may be processed and stored outside of your country of residence. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as your country of residence and your personal information will be subject to applicable foreign laws. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information in the manner described in this Privacy Policy.
