When Do We Share Personal Information?

We share personal information with third parties (vendors, agencies, and businesses) that help Us run Our Sites, Our business, and retail Our products to further L’Oréal’s beauty mission.  We may disclose information to Our service providers, to complete a transaction requested by You, when required by law or authorities, and in the event of a sale or reorganization of Our company. More information is available about how we share personal information about You in the “How We Share Personal Information” section of Our detailed Privacy Notice.  

We do not ‘sell’ (as ‘sell’ is traditionally defined) personal information about Our consumers.  We do not make available or provide consumer’s names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, or other personal information to third parties in exchange for money.  Like many companies, however, We do share or make available personal information We collect with third parties to provide You with personalized advertising from Us and analytics.  For example, we share personal information with third parties such as social media platforms to optimize our marketing campaigns, display ads for Us, and measure the effectiveness of those ads on such platforms.  These companies use personal information to improve their own products and optimize their own ad targeting systems.  In some jurisdictions, this type of activity is considered (1) a ‘sale’, (2) a ‘share’ or ‘use’ of personal information for targeted advertising, or both, and subject to a right of opt-out.

To exercise the right of opt-out where available in your jurisdiction please use one or more of the following:

  • visit the “Your Privacy Choices” link on the footer of a L’Oreal brand Site or click Here to access Our form to submit a request regarding offline (non-browsing) personal information.

  • click on “Cookie Settings” link on the footer of a L’Oreal brand Site and change the setting regarding online (browsing) personal information.  

  • enable a browser-based opt-out signal such as the Global Privacy Control.   Where required by applicable law We will treat browser-based opt-out signals as requests to opt-out of the sale/sharing (or use) of personal information for targeted advertising for Your browser.  If you are logged-in to Your account (where available), We will associate the browser-based opt-out signal with Your account and apply it to offline personal information.

How Long Do We Retain Personal Information?

We will retain personal information about You for so long as Your account is active, you engage with Us, as needed to provide You services, and as necessary to comply with Our legal and/or regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, to manage Our rights, and to enforce Our agreements. 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.‍

    We do not ‘sell’ (as ‘sell’ is traditionally defined) personal information about Our consumers.  We do not make available or provide consumer’s names, phone numbers, addresses, email addresses, or other personal information to third parties in exchange for money.  Like many companies, however, We do share personal information with third parties to provide You with personalized advertising from Us, or We make available personal information to third parties (including due to Our use of cookies (or similar technologies) provided by third parties on Our Sites). For example, we share personal information with third parties (such as social media platforms) to optimize our marketing campaigns, display ads for Us, and measure the effectiveness of those ads.  These companies use personal information to improve their own products and optimize their own ad targeting systems.

    We may offer incentives, such as a coupon or discount on purchase in exchange for personal information (e.g. email sign-up).  We may also offer a loyalty program that will provide certain perks, such as rewards and exclusive offers, as well as other programs like sweepstakes or contests.  We generally do not assign monetary or other value to personal information. If, however, We are required by law to assign such value, We have valued the personal information collected and used as based, in part, on the value of consumer trial of new products and sharing future offers tailored to Your interest with competitive value. The value is a practical and good-faith effort often involving the (i) categories of personal information collected (e.g., names, email addresses), (ii) the transferability of such personal information for Us, (iii) the discounted price offered, (iv) the volume of consumers enrolled in Our programs, and (v) the product or service to which the programs, or price or service differences, applies.
