WHY WE USE DATA
We want you to have the best beauty experience.
We use data to communicate with you about our beauty products, services, answer questions and create better experiences. We use data for tailored advertising and communications.
We may combine information that we collect via one method (e.g., from a website, our digital advertising) with another method (e.g., an offline event). We do this to get a more complete view of your preferences for our beauty products and services, which, in turn, allows us to serve you better and with more customization and better beauty products.
HOW WE SHARE INFORMATION
We share information with the third parties (vendors, agencies and businesses) that help us run our sites, our business, and retail our products to further ChokChok Skin’s mission. We do not sell your data or permit re-use of personal information for independent use without your consent. We share information to the extent we need to prevent fraud, when required by law or authorities and in the event of a sale of our company.
For example, we use information to:
- provide tailored content, services, advertisements and offers
- respond to questions and providing news, emails/communication from us
- administer and manage your account or loyalty program membership
- verify your identity and prevent fraud
- fulfill product purchases
- contact you, send notice of changes to a our policy
- improve effectiveness of our Sites, stores, customer service, and product offerings
- conduct research and analytics
- allow log in, sharing and use of our content with a social media account

You can unsubscribe from our sites at any time. You can also opt-out of interest based advertising as well as SMS messaging, push notifications.
When you create an account on a the ChokChok Skin site, make purchases with us (online or in-store), join a loyalty program, enter a contest, share photograph, video or product reviews, call our Consumer Care Center, sign up to receive offers or email, we collect the information that you provide to us. This information includes Personal Information (information that can be used to identify you as an individual) such as your name, social media handle, email, telephone number, home address, and payment information (such as account or credit card number). If you use a chat feature on our Sites, we collect the information you share during the interaction. We also collect information about your beauty preference, your use of our Sites, demographic, and interests so that we can customize your beauty experiences.
Information We Automatically Collect
We collect some data automatically when you use our Sites. We may obtain information by automated means such as through cookies, pixels, web server logs, web beacons, and other technologies described below.
Device Identifiers: We and our third party service providers automatically may collect an IP address or other unique identifier information ("Device Identifier") for the computer, mobile device, technology or other device (collectively, "Device") you use to access the Sites or on third party websites that publish our advertising. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a web site or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. For mobile devices, a Device Identifier is a unique string of numbers and letters stored on your mobile device that identifies it. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Sites, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track users’ web page movements, help identify you and your shopping cart, deliver advertising and gather broad demographic information.
If you would prefer not to accept cookies, you can change your browser settings to notify you when you receive a cookie, which lets you choose whether or not to accept it; or set your browser to automatically reject any cookies. However, please be aware that some features and services on our Sites may not work properly because we may not be able to recognize and associate you with your account. In addition, the offers we provide when you visit us may not be as relevant to you or tailored to your interests. To learn more about cookies, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.
Pixels: In some of our email messages, we use click through URLs that will bring you to content on our sites. We also use pixel tags to understand whether our emails are read or opened. We use learning from this information to improve our messages, reduce frequency of messages to you or determine interest in content we share.
Information from Third Parties: We receive information from third party partners, such as publishers that run our advertising, and retailers who feature our products. This information includes marketing and demographic data, analytics information, and offline records. We may also receive information from other companies that collect or aggregate information from publicly available databases or if you consented to allow them to use and share your information. This might be de-identified information about purchasing patterns, location of shoppers and sites that are of interest to our consumers. We also collect information about users who share common interests or attributes (e.g. skin types) to create user “segments,” which help us to better understand and market to our customers. We may use your data as part of health-related segments about non-sensitive conditions such as dry skin.
Third Parties Providing Services On Our Behalf: We share information with third party service providers that host or assist with technical operation of our Sites, provide analytics, process orders, transactions and payments, provide customer service, loyalty program administration, redemption; or other third parties that participate in or administer our promotions, contests, sweepstakes, surveys or provide marketing or promotional assistance. We may also share information with third parties to help us identify your online preferences, including the ads with which you interact. This data may be matched with information that we process about you to provide a better experience using our websites and products. These third parties are not permitted to use Personal Information for their own independent marketing or business purposes. We may also share non-identifying information, such as aggregate statistics or usage information, with third parties.
Legal Disclosure: ChokChok Skin may transfer and disclose information, including your Personal Information, Usage Information and Device Identifier, (including IP address), to third parties to comply with a legal obligation; when we believe in good faith that the law requires it; at the request of governmental authorities conducting an investigation; to verify or enforce other applicable policies; to respond to an emergency; or otherwise to protect the rights, property, safety, or security of third parties, visitors to our Sites or the public.
Your Privacy Rights, Your Choices
You may change your preferences and unsubscribe from email services from ChokChok Skin by: (i) modifying your registered user information on the Sites; (ii) sending us an e–mail; or (iii) following the unsubscribe instructions in the communication that you receive.
In accordance with our routine record keeping, we may delete certain records that contain Personal Information you have submitted through the Sites. We are under no obligation to store such Personal Information indefinitely and disclaim any liability arising out of, or related to, the destruction of such Personal Information. In addition, you should be aware that it is not always possible to completely remove or delete all of your information from our databases without some residual data because of backups and other reasons.
We will retain your Personal Information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements. If you wish to cancel your account or request that we no longer use your Personal Information to provide you services, contact us directly. We do not control certain privacy settings and preferences maintained by our social media partners like Facebook and Twitter. If you wish to make changes to those settings and preferences, you may do so by visiting the settings page of the appropriate social media site.
INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING AND ADCHOICES
We use third party companies to serve advertisements, measure the performance and engagement with our ads, provide analytic, preference, and interest information. In some instances, these ad network providers, social platforms, sponsors, and/or analytics service providers may use their own tracking technology to capture information about your device, use and engagement online.
We may recognize your information across different devices that you use or log in from (i.e. computers or mobile devices.) We may recognize that one cookie ID (i.e. from a computer) may be connected to another device (i.e. smart phone) by the device ID or log in. This may result in you searching for one of our products on one device but seeing an ad later for that product on another device. By knowing what devices are being used by a person or household helps us limit the number of times you may see the same ad across different devices.
You can opt out of receiving targeted advertising through the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) Opt–Out Page. Options are Device-specific, so if you use multiple Devices, you should opt out on each one. You can also opt out of certain targeted advertising programs by clicking on the AdChoices icon that appears on our Site footers and may appear on our advertising. Even if you opt-out of targeted advertising, you may still see our advertisements while you are browsing, but they may not be targeted to you based on your interests.
Some social networks (i.e. Facebook), allow you to exercise ad choices, limit data collection and clear your history on that platform as well. For your convenience we have provided the links to some of the social networks:

YOUR CALIFORNIA RIGHTS:
The California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) provides California residents with specific rights regarding their personal information. This section describes your rights and how you can submit your request to us. We do not sell personal information.
Access to Information
You have the right to request that we disclose information about our collection and use of your personal information over the past 12 months, including:
- Categories of personal information we collected
- Categories of sources for the personal information we collected
- Our business purpose for collecting personal information
- The categories of third parties with whom we share that personal information
- The specific personal information we collected about you
You have the right to request that we delete any of your personal information that we collected from you and retained, subject to certain exceptions. Once we receive and confirm your verifiable consumer request, we will delete (and direct our service providers to delete) your personal information from our records, unless an exception applies.
We may deny a deletion request where retaining the information is necessary for us or our service providers. For example, data may need to be kept to:
- Complete a sales transaction for which we collected the personal information (such as the sale of our beauty products to you)
- Track consumer complaints or product issues
- Detect security incidents, protect against malicious, deceptive, fraudulent, or illegal activity
- Comply with a legal obligation
- Enable solely internal uses that are reasonably aligned with consumer expectations based on your relationship with us
Submitting a Request
Only you or a person registered with the California Secretary of State that you authorize to act on your behalf, may make a request related to your personal information. You may also make a verifiable consumer request on behalf of your minor child.
The verifiable consumer request must:
- Provide sufficient information that allows us to reasonably verify you are the person about whom we collected personal information or an authorized representative of a California resident who wishes to make a request.
We may not be able to respond to your request or provide you with personal information if we cannot verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm the personal information relates to you. Making a verifiable consumer request does not require you to create an account with us. We will ask you for the email information that you used to interact with us or sign up for a loyalty program, email or to make purchases to help verify your identity or authority to make the request and confirm that your information is in our system. Information provided to submit a request will only be used for request purposes.
We will endeavor to respond to a verified consumer request within 45 days. If we require more time, we will inform you of the reason and extension in writing.
We do not charge a fee to process or respond to a verified consumer request unless it is excessive, repetitive, or manifestly unfounded. If we determine that the request warrants a fee, we will provide an explanation and a cost estimate prior to completing the request.
You may only make a request for access or data portability twice within a 12-month period.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising any of your CCPA rights.
To submit your request, contact us directly with an email titled “CCPA verified consumer request.”
Under California law, website and online service operators are required to disclose how they respond to web browser “do not track” signals. ChokChok Skin does not currently take actions to respond to Do Not Track signals as a uniform standard for such a response has not yet been established.
California law requires website and online service operators to disclose whether third parties may collect personal information about their users’ online activities over time and across different sites when the users use the operator’s website or service. Third parties that have content or services on our Sites such as a social feature, analytics service, or an advertising network partner, may obtain information about your browsing or usage habits. We do not knowingly permit such third parties to collect any Personal Information from our Sites for their own unrelated marketing or business purposes or unless you directly provide it to us and we provide it to them with your consent.
If you are a minor under 18 and have a profile on the ChokChok Skin Site, you may ask us to remove reviews or other content that you posted on the site by providing as much detail as possible (i.e. date and caption) as to the post(s) you want removed. Please note that processing your request does not ensure complete or comprehensive removal of content that you posted.
CHILDREN: ChokChok Skin’s site is not directed to children under 13. We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personally identifiable information from anyone under 13 years of age. If we determine upon collection that a user is under this age, we will not use or maintain his/her Personal Information without the parent/guardian's consent. If we become aware that we have unknowingly collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 13, we will make reasonable efforts to delete such information from our records. If you believe that we might have any information from or about a child under age 13, please contact us.
Parental Consent: Minors between 13 years of age and the age of majority in their state must ask their parent or guardian for permission to use any ChokChok Skin properties. For ChokChok Skin’s e-commerce offering, you may only make purchases if you are 18 years of age or older, or the age of majority in your jurisdiction of residence.
Parental participation. We strongly recommend that minors 13 years of age or older ask their parents for permission before sending any information about themselves to anyone over the Internet and we encourage parents to teach their children about safe internet use practices.
SECURITY OF YOUR INFORMATION
ChokChok Skin maintains reasonable safeguards to protect Personal Information against loss, unauthorized use, disclosure or destruction and when transferring information for processing and requires third parties providing services on our behalf to do the same. However, no electronic data transmission or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Please note that we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us.
The Sites may contain links to third party sites that are not owned or operated by ChokChok Skin. This includes links from advertisers, sponsors and/or partners that may use our logo as part of a co–branding or co–marketing agreement. We do not control, recommend or endorse and are not responsible for these sites or their content, products, services or privacy policies or practices. These other sites may send their own cookies or other tracking technologies to your device, they may independently collect data or solicit Personal Information and may or may not have their own published privacy policies. You should also independently assess the authenticity of any site which appears or claims that it is one of our Sites (including those linked to through an email or social networking page). The Sites may make available chat rooms, forums, message boards, and news groups. Remember that any information that you disclose in these areas becomes public information and is not subject to the provisions of this Privacy and Cookie Notice.
