Last Updated: September 30, 2016

The Proactiv Company Sàrl (“Company,” or “We,” or “Us,” or “Our”) has created this privacy policy (the “Policy”) to explain our privacy practices so you will understand when and how information is collected, used, disclosed and protected with respect to this website (the “Site”). Individuals must be 13 of age or older to use this Site and you warrant that you are 13 years of age or older. By using the Site, you consent to the privacy practices described in this Policy, as modified from time to time by us. Therefore, you should carefully review this policy so you understand our privacy practices.

Your information and how our Site makes use of it

Our Site collects aggregate information (such as the number of users who log on to the Site on a daily basis). As a general policy, no personally identifiable information is automatically collected from your visit to our Site.

From time to time, we may collect general statistical or aggregate information. Such information can include the type of browsers being used (e.g., Chrome®, Safari®, Internet Explorer®, Firefox®), the operating system you are using (e.g., iOS®, Android®, Windows®, or Mac® OS), the number of users that visit a specific page on the Site and the nature and duration of such visits. This information may be used to help analyze Site traffic and improve our services. At no point, however, will the aggregated information personally identify you.

We reserve the right to disclose any aggregate information if required to do so by law, including compliance with legal process served on Company, or if we believe that such action is necessary in order to (a) to protect or defend the legal rights or property of Company, the Site, or its users; or (b) in an emergency to protect the health and safety of the Site’s users or the general public.

You should refer to the rest of this Policy to see how we use, disclose and protect this information:

Automatically Collected Information

We automatically receive certain types of information whenever you interact with us. For example, when you visit the Site, our systems automatically collect your IP address and the type of browser you use. Static IP addresses are considered personal information. For mobile users accessing the Site, we automatically collect your Unique Device Identifier which is also considered personal information. However, the user cannot be recognized as a specific individual simply from a Static IP address or a UDI. Information may be automatically collected through the use of cookies or web beacons which are discussed in more detail below. We may also collect information about your browsing behavior, entry and exit points for the Site, search terms, website addresses you visit, page views, and impressions.

Cookies

Cookies are small text files placed on your hard drive by a website when you visit. These files identify your computer and record your preferences and other data about your visit so that when you return to the site, the site knows who you are and can personalize your visit. In general, we use cookies to collect information so that we can determine how to improve our sites by seeing which areas, features and products are most popular, to personalize the site and improve the site experience. Most browsers automatically accept cookies as the default setting. You can modify the setting to reject cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the sites you visit by editing browser options. If you decide not to accept our cookies, you will still be able to access those parts of our site available to the general public, but you may have a less satisfactory experience.

Web Beacons

Similar in function to Cookies, Web Beacons (also known as pixels) are small, transparent images that collect information such as the IP address of the requesting computer, the time for which the material was viewed, the type of web browser that retrieved the web beacon image, and the existence of cookies previously set by the Site’s server.

Do Not Track Requests

The Site does not respond to browser-based, Do Not Track requests or signals. Further, Company allows other parties to collect aggregate information over time and across different websites when a user accesses the Site.

Children’s Privacy Policy

This website is intended for use by individuals who are 13 of age or older. Accordingly, Company does not knowingly, directly or passively collect information from individuals under the age of 13.

The following section describes these disclosure practices more fully:

Internal Analysis

We may use aggregate information for our own internal statistical, design, or operational purposes, such as to estimate our audience size or to measure aggregate traffic patterns, as well as to understand areas of interest, and other trends among our users. We may outsource these tasks to authorized third parties; however, the third parties may not use or disclose information for any other purposes.

Data Storage

Aggregate information shared with our authorized third parties may be stored on our internal equipment to which we allow access, or, the data may reside on their own respective external equipment.

Business Transfers

Information about our users and the Site is one of our most important business assets. Therefore, information about our users may be disclosed as part of any merger or acquisition, creation of a separate business to provide the Site or fulfill products, sale or pledge of company assets, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership in which personal information would be transferred as one of the business assets of the company.

Protection of Company and Others

As referenced above, we release information when we believe it is appropriate to comply with the law (e.g., a lawful subpoena, warrant or court order); to enforce or apply our policies; to protect our rights or property; or to protect our users from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful use of, our Site; or if we reasonably believe that an emergency involving immediate danger of death or serious physical injury to any person requires disclosure of communications or justifies disclosure of records without delay.

Security of Information

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of information in our custody and control. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology in order to protect the security of our Site. However, even with the best technology, no Site is 100% secure. We will take reasonable measures which we believe are appropriate to protect information from loss, misuse, alteration or destruction, and, where possible, will ask that any third parties to whom we may transfer such information to take comparable steps to protect that security.

Links to Websites

Company may provide links to websites and other content as a service to those interested in this information. We are providing these links as a convenience to you. When leaving this Site, you should be aware that this Site’s Policy and Terms of Use no longer govern, and, therefore, you should review the applicable terms and policies, including privacy and data gathering practices, of that website.

Network Security

You should be aware that Company has no control over the security of other websites on the Internet that you might visit, interact with, or from which you buy products or services.

Updating This Policy

We may revise and update this Policy if our practices change, as technology changes, or as we add new services or change existing ones. Any changes will be posted to this document so that you will always know what information we gather and how we use it. You are encouraged to print or download a copy of this document for your records. We will use information in accordance with the most current privacy policy.
