BIONNICO PRIVACY STATEMENT
Last Updated: May 25, 2018
Your privacy is as important to us as it is to you! We treat the information you provide us (such as your name or email – aka "Personal Information" as further defined below) with the highest level of integrity and responsibility. This statement describes what we collect, what we do with it and how you can manage it, plus some information about how the site operates and the security safeguards we have in place.
The policies below are applicable to data and information collected through BIONNICO websites (including any versions optimized for viewing on a wireless or tablet device) (“BIONNICO Websites”), all apps published by BIONNICO (“BIONNICO Apps”), all email newsletters published or distributed by BIONNICO, all other interactive features and communications provided by BIONNICO, and to any and all data and information provided by you to BIONNICO at BIONNICO stores, call centers, events, or promotions, and all data and information provided by you or collected through your membership in the BIONNICO Loyalty Program (“BIONNICO Outlets”), however accessed and/or used, that are operated by us, made available by us, or produced and maintained by BIONNICO.
By using our BIONNICO Outlets, you are accepting the practices described in this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement, please do not use the BIONNICO Outlets and/or supply us with your Personal Information. We reserve the right to modify or amend the terms of this Privacy Statement from time to time without notice. Your continued use of the BIONNICO Outlets following the posting of changes to these terms will mean you accept those changes. If we intend to apply the modifications or amendments to this Privacy Statement retroactively or to personal information already in our possession, we will provide you with specific notice of the modifications or amendments.
What Information We Collect:
We collect two basic types of information from you in conjunction with your use of the BIONNICO Outlets, personal information and non-personal information. Personal information is information that you may supply to us, as described more fully below, i.e., when you make a purchase, obtain a subscription, complete a survey or participate in a promotion, attend or participate in a program, register on the BIONNICO Outlets, upload content to a website or app, participate in a community, or provide your e-mail address. Non-personal information includes information that does not personally identify you, but it may include tracking and usage information about your location, demographics, use of the BIONNICO Outlets and use of the internet (“Non-Personal Information”).
In order to provide you with the best customer experience, we occasionally ask you to tell us a little about yourself. The type of personal information we collect when you register on or use our BIONNICO Outlets, check out online or pay at the register may include the following (“Personal Information”):
§ Your name, address, telephone number, birthdate, and email address.
§ Credit or debit card information.
In addition, when you interact with the BIONNICO Outlets, we may collect certain information that does not identify you individually and to the extent you interact with BIONNICO Outlets that are our websites, interactive communications or apps, our servers may automatically keep an activity log of your use of our BIONNICO Outlets. Generally, we collect and store the following categories of Non-Personal Information:
§ Non-identifiable demographic data such as age, gender, and five digit zip code.

Collection of Personal Information Through Social Media Platforms or Using Your Social Media Logon
When you interact with any BIONNICO page or account on a social media platform, including, but not limited to, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Tumblr, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram, or Pinterest, we may collect the personal information that you make available to us on that page or account including your account ID or “handle.” However, we will comply with the privacy policies of the corresponding social media platform and we will only collect and store such personal information that we are permitted to collect by these social media platforms. If you publish your social media profile to BIONNICO, we may collect personal information that you make available as part of that profile.
Collection of Personal and Non-Personal Information Through Surveys, Sweepstakes and Promotions
Collection of Third Party Personal Information Through Tell-A-Friend Feature
We may from time to time conduct a referral service to introduce people you know to our BIONNICO Outlets. If you choose to use our referral service to tell someone about our BIONNICO Outlets or a discount on the BIONNICO Outlets, we will ask you for your contact’s name and email address. We will automatically send your contact a one-time email inviting him or her to visit one or more of the BIONNICO Outlets. We store this information for the purpose of sending this one-time email and tracking the success of our referral program. Your contact may contact us at info@BIONNICO.com to request that we remove this information from our database.

Accessing & Controlling Your Personal Information
Privacy Preferences / Opting Out:
When you register on or at one of our BIONNICO Outlets or provide us with your email address, you are automatically opted in to receive marketing emails about our products, services, sales and offers.
You may change your marketing preferences or remove yourself from our mailing lists by clicking on the "unsubscribe" link in the footer of promotional emails, by e-mailing us atinfo@BIONNICO.com or by contacting us at: 1-833-BIONNICO
Please allow sufficient time for your preferences to be processed. Please note, however, that you generally cannot opt-out of service related announcements, e.g. if one of the BIONNICO Outlets is temporarily suspended or if delivery of a product or service is delayed.
Access to Personal Information
You may request access to the Personal Information we have about you. For detailed instructions, please contact us.
Information Sharing Disclosure Requests (California residents)
California residents have the right to request one Notice of Information-Sharing Disclosure per year that will identify the third parties with whom BIONNICO or any of our affiliates has shared your Personal Information. You may request the Notice of Information-Sharing Disclosure by writing to us at: BIONNICO by e-mailing us at info@BIONNICO.com. We will respond to your request for a Notice of Information-Sharing Disclosure within 30 days.
Security of Your Personal Information:
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect against unauthorized access, use, modification and disclosure of Personal Information in our custody and control. We also are committed to employing reasonable technology and processes in order to protect the security of the BIONNICO Outlets. However, even with the best technology, no location is 100% secure. Where possible, we will ask that any third parties to whom we transfer your Personal Information to take comparable steps to protect that security.
When you place orders on or through the BIONNICO Websites and Apps, all of your order information, including your card number and delivery address, is transmitted through the Internet using SSL technology, which encrypts your order information before transmitting it to our secure server. This is designed to prevent someone other than operators of the BIONNICO Websites and Apps from capturing and viewing your Personal Information. If your Web browser or device cannot support this level of security, you will not be able to order products through the BIONNICO Websites and Apps. Nearly all current internet browsers and devices can support a secure connection. Visit your browser or device’s website to download a current version.
To provide you with an increased level of security, online access to your Personal Information is protected with a password that you select. We strongly recommend that you do not disclose your password to anyone. BIONNICO will never ask you for your password in any unsolicited communication (including unsolicited correspondence, such as letters, phone calls or e-mail messages).
Use and Operation of Our BIONNICO Outlets
Intended Site Use:
BIONNICO Websites and the BIONNICO Apps and any interactive features are not intended or designed to attract users under the age of 13. We do not collect Personal Information from any person we know to be under the age of 13. If you are under 13, we ask that you not send us any Personal Information.
BIONNICO Websites may also use a technology called tracer tags. These may also be referred to as Clear GIFs or Web Beacons. This technology allows us to understand which pages you visit on the BIONNICO Websites. These tracer tags are used to help us optimize and tailor the BIONNICO Websites for you and future visitors.
Do Not Track:
Your browser or device may include “Do Not Track” functionality. Because a “Do Not Track” compliance protocol has not yet been finalized, BIONNICO’s information collection and disclosure practices, and the choices that we provide to customers, will continue to operate as described in this Privacy Statement, whether or not a Do Not Track signal is received.
How Long Do We Keep Your Information?
Following termination or deactivation of your account, BIONNICO, its affiliates, or its service providers may retain Personal Information for a commercially reasonable time for backup, archival, and/or audit purposes. If you have any questions about termination or deactivation of your account, please contact us directly at info@BIONNICO.com.
We may change our ownership or corporate organization while providing the BIONNICO Outlets. We may also sell certain assets associated with the BIONNICO Outlets. As a result, please be aware that in such event we may transfer some or all of your information to a company acquiring all or part of our assets or to another company with which we have merged. Under such circumstances we would, to the extent possible, require the acquiring party to follow the practices described in this Privacy Statement, as it may be amended from time to time. Nevertheless, we cannot promise that an acquiring company or the merged company will have the same privacy practices or treat your information the same as described in this Privacy Statement.
Policy Changes and Getting More Information
From time to time, we may modify or amend this Privacy Statement in order to comply with new laws or regulations or to reflect changes in our business practices. Any changes in our policies will be communicated on this page. Changes may be made at any time, without prior notice. However, we may post a notice on or in the relevant BIONNICO Outlets or send an email describing any changes.
