It also provides the Beauty and Fashion Industry with a means of engaging with consumers via the Website. Our Website including mobile properties and related applications are owned and operated by Glam Geek Ltd.
We understand that providing information online involves a great deal of trust on your part. We take this trust very seriously, and make it a high priority to ensure the security and confidentiality of the any data you provide us when you visit our Website or use our services.
Collection of your Personal Data
Personal data means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified, electronic addresses, date of birth, password and payment information. It does not include data where the identity has been removed or otherwise anonymized (anonymous data).
The personal data we collect about you is currently restricted to email address, Password and Year of Birth. You can choose not to provide us with your personal data. However, in general you need to provide us with certain information about you in order to take advantage of many features of the Website. For example, only registered members are able to post reviews, participate in discussion forums, access members-only newsletters and enter surveys and competitions
We automatically collect some information from your computer or mobile device when you visit GlamGeek. For example, we collect your session data, including your IP address, the navigation software used and the reference site. We may also collect information about your online activity, such as reviewed content, pages visited and searches. We automatically collect this type of information to try to better understand your interests and preferences and to better personalise your experience.
In addition, we may collect certain information about your location if you have instructed your device to send such information to the application via the privacy settings on that device, or if you have uploaded photos tagged with location information.
You can change the privacy settings of your device at any time in order to turn off the functionality to share location information with the application and/or the functionality to tag your photos with location information. Please note that turning off location sharing may affect certain features of our application or mobile experience. If you have any queries about the privacy settings of your device, we suggest you contact the manufacturer of your device or your mobile service provider for help.
How we use your personal data
We want to make it easy for you to take advantage of beauty and fashion related opportunities on our Website. One way we do this is by sending you email messages that contain information about your related interest. We believe these emails will provide you with useful information about related special offers available through our sites.
You will receive marketing messages from us if you have given your consent, if you have requested or if you purchased products or services from us and if you have not opted out of receiving marketing messages.
Each time you receive an email of this type, you will be able to tell us if you no longer wish to receive them, or deny push notifications in the application, or change the settings of your mobile device to do so for that type of marketing message or notification. You will be able to unsubscribe from each of those marketing communications at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link that you will find at the bottom of each communication you receive from us or by updating your preference settings on the Website.
Please note that we may continue to send you service communications, such as service and administrative messages about your account. It is not possible to unsubscribe from these service communications.
Sharing your Personal Data
Glam Geek Ltd may share your information with other parties, if we sell or divest our business or any part of it, and your personal data relates to such sold or divested part of our business, or if we merge with another business, we will share your personal data with the new owner of the business or our merger partner, respectively.
Separately, if we are legally obliged to do so, we will share personal data to protect our customers, the site, as well as our company and our rights and property.
If you choose to create a profile on GlamGeek, certain information in your profile will be publicly viewable and identifiable by clicking your screen name.

All GlamGeek.co.uk members have the option to turn off the member forum communication features at any time.
Third-party service providers who provide services or functions on our behalf, including business analytics, payment processing, customer service, marketing, public relations, distribution of surveys and fraud prevention. We may also authorise third-party service providers to collect information on our behalf, including, for example, as necessary to operate features of our Website or to facilitate the delivery of online advertising tailored to your interests. Third-party service providers have access to and may collect information only as needed to perform their functions and are not permitted to share or use the information for any other purpose.
You can tell when a third party is involved in a product or service you have requested because their name will appear either with ours or separately. If you choose to access these optional services, we may share information about you, including your personal data, with those partners. Please note that we do not control the privacy practices of these third-party business partners.
We also may share your information if we believe, in our sole discretion, that such disclosure is necessary:
- to comply with legitimate and enforceable subpoenas, court orders or other legal process; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims or as otherwise required by law. In such cases we reserve the right to raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us;
- in connection with a corporate transaction, such as a divestiture, merger, consolidation or asset sale or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy.
Other than as set out above, you will be notified when personal data about you will be shared with third parties, and you will have an opportunity to choose not to have us share such information.
We also may share aggregate or anonymous information with third parties, including advertisers and investors regarding the number of visitors our Website receives or the most popular brands and products. This information does not contain any personal data and is used to develop content and services we hope you will find of interest.
How long we keep your Personal Data
We will only retain your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes we collected it for, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting or statutory reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal data, we consider the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure or your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means and the applicable legal requirements.

In addition, we use encryption when transmitting your personal data between your system and ours, and between our system and those of the parties with whom we share sensitive information, and we employ firewalls and intrusion detection systems to help prevent unauthorised persons from gaining access to your personal data.
Whenever we store or transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area, we will do so in accordance with applicable law and we will ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by implementing appropriate safeguards.
Transfers of personal data are made to a country recognised by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection; or to a country which does not offer adequate protection but whose transfer has been governed by the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission or by implementing other appropriate cross-border transfer solutions to provide adequate protection.
