Beautystack App, Inc. (“Beautystack,” the “Company,” “we,” “our” and “us”) is committed to maintaining a trustworthy, curated community. To that end, the policy set forth below (the “Privacy Policy”) reflects our commitment to protecting your privacy and describes the information we collect, how that information may be used, and with whom it may be shared. By using our web application (the “app”) and related services (collectively, the “Service”), you acknowledge how we handle your personal information. We encourage you to read this Privacy Policy and our Terms of Use carefully and contact us at hello@beautystack.co with any questions you may have.

For the purposes of data protection legislation in the European Union and the United Kingdom, Beautystack Limited is the controller of your personal information. This means that we determine the purposes for, and ways in which, we collect and use personal information, as described in this Privacy Policy.

We will occasionally update this Privacy Policy to reflect changes in the law, our data collection and use practices, the features of our Service, or advances in technology. When we make changes, we will email you and we will revise the “updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy, which will be posted at http://www.beautystack.co/privacy.html. We encourage you to regularly check for the most recent version.

When you’re using our Beautystack web application and related services, there is some information we collect about you, and you can share your information on the App with other users (“Users”).

Collection of Information

When you interact with us through our Service, we may collect your personal information, as described below:

  • Applying for membership to the Service: In order to apply for membership to the Service, you will be asked to begin an application entering a username, first name, last name and email address. You may also be asked to allow us to collect your geographical at all times, only while you are using the app or not at all. Further, you may be asked if you would like to display your specific location to other users. We will also collect your financial details for us to process you membership fee.
  • General use of the Service: In addition, we may collect and store any personal information you provide while using our Service, which may include identifying information provided in your application, such as your name, Instagram username, email address, date of birth, gender, hometown, city of residence, and listed friends currently using Beautystack. In connection with your use of the Service, you may also provide us images, a biographical description, information about your gender and preferences for recommendations and connections. Should you contact us with an inquiry, you provide us the content of that correspondence.
  • Communications with other members of the Service: If you communicate with other users within the Service, you provide us the content of your conversation.
  • Exclusive content and newsletter: when you subscribe for our exclusive content and offers, we will ask you to enter your email address.
  • Communications via our website: we collect personal information when you provide it to us through communications via your use of our Service. This includes operation system used by your device, your device type and ID, your IP address, and access times. If you grant us permission to use location services, we will automatically collect data regarding your geographical location at all times or while the app is actively running, as applicable. Note that even if you do not grant us permission to use location services, we may collect data regarding your city, state and general location (not your exact location) through your IP address. We collect this personal information by using cookies and other similar technologies. Please see our Cookies policy for further information.
  • Managing your calendar: Beautystack will ask to manage your calendar. This is so we can insert your bookings that clients make on the site. Your calendar entries will not be visible publicly. Our calendar integration only checks the duration and free/busy status of the events in your calendar so that we don’t book you when you’re busy. We never save who you’re meeting with, their email, the meeting title or any other details about the appointments in your calendar outside of Beautystack.Your contacts: Beautystack will ask to view your contacts. This is so you can easily import your client list into our database. We save these contacts under your demand. We have no access to your contacts unless you specifically choose to import them into your Dashboard. Beautystack will never contact your clients without your authorisation and action such as an appointment confirmation or a promotion on your site. These messages are considered part of the service and you may not opt out of these messages.
  • Careers: we may collect personal information from you when you enquire or apply for a vacancy with us, such as your name, address, contact details (such as email and/or telephone number); your LinkedIn profile details if you have interacted with us on LinkedIn.

Uses Made of the Information

Under applicable data protection laws, we are required to specify the legal basis under which we are allowed to process your personal information. Generally, we may process your personal information to perform our services to you, for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or proceedings and to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations, for our legitimate interests or where we have your consent.

Information Shared with Other Users. When you register as a user of the Service, your app profile will be viewable by other users of the Service. Such other users will be able to view information you have provided to us directly or through Instagram, such as your Instagram username, photos you upload, your first name, your age, city of residence, hometown, your biography, and information you have in common with the person viewing your profile, such as mutually followed Instagram accounts. Users are about to chat with you through the Service. Should you engage in a conversation through our Service, that user with whom you are communicating will see the content of that interaction. By submitting an application to Beautystack, you are giving the app access to your Instagram profile through the use of Instagram’s API. However, the Instagram information automatically available to users of the app will not exceed the information otherwise accessible through your Instagram profile. Therefore, a “private” Instagram user profile will still be private; only the content you choose to share with Beautystack users will be visible.

We may use information about you, or technical information relating to your mobile device to:

  • offer you our services and features and contact you with information about the App subject to the “Marketing” section below;
  • process your membership application;
  • respond to any queries you raise when you contact us directly;
  • notify you about changes to our service;
  • carry out internal operations such as troubleshooting, data analysis,
  • testing, research or for statistical purposes;
  • to protect the security of and managing access to our premises, IT and communication systems, online platforms, website and other systems, preventing and detecting security threats, fraud or other criminal or malicious activities;
  • to comply with court orders, investigate fraud, protect our legal rights, and to enforce our Terms of Use;
  • to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations and requests, including reporting to and/or being audited or investigated by national and international regulatory bodies;
  • to allow you to participate in interactive features of our service, when you choose to do so.

Disclosure of your Information

We will not disclose your information, except in the limited circumstances described here:

Your Consent

  • Service Providers — We engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to us, such as maintaining databases, hosting and cloud computing services, processing payments, legal services and marketing services. We may share your Registration Information with these third parties, but only for the purposes of performing these functions and providing such services.
  • Law and Harm — We will cooperate with law enforcement enquiries received from within or outside your country of residence. This may include preserving or disclosing any of your information, including your Registration Information, if we believe in good faith that it is necessary to comply with a law or regulation, or when we believe that disclosure is necessary to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal request, to protect the safety of any person, to address fraud, security or technical issues, or to protect our rights or property or those of third parties. In such cases we may raise or waive any legal obligation or right available to us.
  • Business Transfers — In the event that Beautystack or any of our affiliates are involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganisation or sale of assets, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction.
  • Other Information — We may share or disclose aggregated or otherwise anonymised information with third parties for industry analysis and demographic profiling, and to deliver targeted advertising.

Where we Store Your Personal Data

The data that we collect from you may be stored in the European Union as well as being transferred to a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”) such as the United Kingdom or the United States. It may also be processed by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or for one of our suppliers. This includes staff engaged in, among other things, the provision of support services. These locations may not provide the same protections as the data protection laws in the EEA. Where the country we transfer your personal information to outside the EEA is not already recognised by the European Commission as providing adequate protection, we will implement appropriate safeguards (such as the European Commission approved standard contractual clauses) to govern such transfers, pursuant to applicable data protection laws. Beautystack will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this privacy policy.

Data Retention

How long we retain your personal information depends on the type of data and the purpose for which we process the data. We will retain your personal information for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law.

Keeping Information Secure

We take the security of your information very seriously. Despite our efforts, no system is guaranteed to be completely secure. While we have taken, and will continue to take, reasonable actions to regularly update and improve our security, we do not promise, nor you should expect, that your information, chats, or other communications will always remain secure. We have no liability to you or to any third party arising out of any loss, misuse or alteration of your personal information. Users outside of the EU, should note that your information may be transferred to our servers which are hosted within the EU.

Marketing and Push Notifications

We may contact you using your email address which you can opt out of at any time by using the unsubscribe link in any of our communications. Upon using the App you will be asked to accept or deny push notifications/alerts. If you deny, you will not receive any push notifications/alerts. If you accept, push notifications/alerts will automatically be sent to you. If you no longer wish to receive push notifications/alerts from the App, you may opt out by changing the notification settings on your mobile device.

Geolocation Information

Upon using the App, you will be asked to turn on location services. If you turn these features on, we may collect your device’s geolocation data and save your device’s coordinates to offer certain features to you. We may also use your device’s geolocation information to personalise the App and make it easier for you to interact with other Users close by. You can control your location information settings in your Account settings and switch them off if you want to. Even if you have disabled location services, we may still determine your city, state, and country location based on your IP address (but not your exact location).

Log and Usage Data

Our servers automatically record information (“Log and Usage Data”) created by your use of Beautystack, which again helps us to improve our service. Log and Usage Data may include information such as your IP address, browser type, the referring domain, pages visited, access times, your mobile carrier, and search terms. Other actions, such as interactions with Beautystack and advertisements, may also be included in Log and Usage Data.

Device Information

We may collect information about your device when you use the App including the unique device identifier, device model, operating system, and MAC address. In addition, if you permit us to do so, the App may access your device’s address book and contact lists in order to offer you certain features of our Services.

What Others See About You

Beautystack is designed to make it easier for you to connect with other Users and to interact with them. When you register or login to the App using your Facebook account, you are authorizing us to access certain Facebook account information, including information you make available via Facebook, your friends list, current location and those friends you have in common with other Beautystack users. Your Beautystack profile and other information you make available via the App, including information you provide directly or indirectly through Facebook (i.e., your Facebook photos, your name, age, approximate location, friends you have in common with other Users and other profile information), may be viewed and shared by Users with individuals who may or may not be Users or via third party applications. When using Beautystack you should assume that anything you post or submit on the App may be publicly viewable and accessible, both by Users of the App and non-Users of the App. So, please be careful about what you post.

Removing Beautystack Access

If you want to remove Beautystack from your Facebook account at any time (and we hope you don’t! you can do this by visiting the application settings on your Facebook profile and following the instructions to remove Beautystack access permissions.

Even after you remove information from your profile or delete your Account, copies of that information may still be viewable and/or accessed to the extent such information has been previously shared with others, or copied or stored by other Users or to the extent such information has been shared with search engines. We cannot control this, nor do we accept any liability for this. If you have given third party applications or websites access to your personal information they may retain such information to the extent permitted under their terms of service or privacy policies. Removed and deleted information may persist in backup copies for up to 30 days to enable restoration, but will not be available to others in the meantime.

Your Rights

You have the following rights with respect to your personal information:

  • Right of access: If you ask us, we will confirm whether we are processing your personal information and, if so, provide you with a copy of that personal information along with certain other details. If you require additional copies, we may need to charge a reasonable fee.
  • Right to correct or request deletion: You may ask us to correct, delete or remove your personal information. You can also request to change your details in the App’s settings.

  • Right to data portability: You have the right to receive personal information in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and (if certain conditions are satisfied), transmit that personal information to a third party, if we have the technical means.
  • Right to lodge a complaint with the data protection authority: If you have a concern about our privacy practices, including the way we handled your personal information, you can report it to your local data protection authority. We hope you will be able to address any concerns with us directly in the first instance so we are able to respond to them.

In circumstances where you have provided your consent to the collection, processing and transfer of your personal information for a specific purpose, you have the right to withdraw consent for that specific processing at any time. You may exercise your rights under applicable data protection laws by contacting us at hello@beautystack.com.
