  2. Types of Information Collected. In order to better provide Users with Beauty in a Beat’s numerous services, Beauty in a Beat collects two types of information about Site Users: Personally Identifiable Information and Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Beauty in a Beat’s primary goal in collecting information from User is to provide User with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience while using the Site or receiving or providing the Styling Services, although Beauty in a Beat makes no guarantee of such Site operation. Some of the information that Beauty in a Beat collects may be Non-Personally Identifiable Information or Personally Identifiable Information depending on the manner in which it is used, whether it is combined with other information or whether it is viewed independent of any other information.

5.1 Personally Identifiable Information. Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that lets Beauty in a Beat know the specifics of who Users are. When User engages in certain activities on this Site, such as contacting Beauty in a Beat via the provided web forms or sending Beauty in a Beat an email or scheduling an appointment for Styling Services, Beauty in a Beat may ask User to provide certain information about User by filling out and submitting an online form. It is completely optional for User to engage in these activities.  If User elects to engage in these activities, however, Beauty in a Beat may ask that User provide personal information, such as first and last name, email address, home or business address and telephone number - as well as payment information and other personal information.  Depending upon the activity, some of the information Beauty in a Beat asks User to provide is identified as mandatory and some as voluntary. If User does not provide the mandatory data with respect to a particular activity, User will not be able to engage in that activity. Customers and Stylists may be required to provide additional Personally Identifiable Information to become a Customer or Stylist and partake in activities restricted to Customers and Stylists. Our Customer Agreement and Stylist Services Agreement describe certain information that may be required from Customers and Stylists, respectively, but additional information may be required on the Site from time to time.

5.2 Non-Personally Identifiable Information. Non-Personally Identifiable Information refers to information that does not by itself identify a specific User. Beauty in a Beat gathers certain information about Users based upon which pages Users visit on the Site or Service in several ways. This information is compiled and analyzed on both a personal and an aggregated basis. This information may include, but is not limited to, the website's Uniform Resource Locator ("URL") from which User just came, to which URL User next goes, what browser User is using, and User’s Internet Protocol ("IP") address. A URL is the global address of documents and other resources on the World Wide Web. An IP address is an identifier for a computer or device on a Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol ("TCP/IP") network, such as the World Wide Web. Networks like the Web use the TCP/IP protocol to route information based on the IP address of the destination. In other words, an IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to User’s computer whenever User is surfing the web, allowing web servers to locate and identify User’s computer. Computers require IP addresses in order for users to communicate on the Internet.

5.3 Geo-Location Information. If User is accessing the Site from a mobile device or through a mobile app, User may be asked to share geo-location information with Beauty in a Beat or other such third party collecting information from Users on the Site or Service. This information is typically used to customize User’s experience on the Site or Service. If User agrees to such collection, User may, depending on the brand and make of phone, be able to turn off such data collection at any time, by accessing the privacy settings of User’s mobile device and/or through the settings in the applicable mobile application. Geo-location information may be required in order for certain portions of the Site or Service to function properly or to the fullest extent possible.

5.4 Other Types of Information. Beauty in a Beat, its advertisers, or other third party suppliers or service providers may collect other types of information including, without limitation, (i) log information such as, without limitation, details of how User used the Site and event information such as, without limitation, crashes, system activity and browser settings; (ii) unique application numbers including, without limitation, numbers assigned by the Site related to specific sales of Styling Services; (iii) local storage information, that is, information stored locally on User’s device including, without limitation, browser web storage and application data caches; and (iv) other Customer information related to the use of the Site or related to Customer and Customer's preferences.

  1. Collection Methods and Use of Information.

6.1 Voluntary Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information.

6.2 Automatic Collection of Non-Personally Identifiable Information.

Beauty in a Beat uses User’s IP address to diagnose problems with Beauty in a Beat’s servers, software, to administer the Site and to gather demographic information. Beauty in a Beat’s third party ad servers may also provide Beauty in a Beat with summary, but not individual, reports that will tell Beauty in a Beat how many ads were presented and clicked upon on the Site or through the Service.

In addition, Beauty in a Beat may receive your Personally or Non-Personally Identifiable Information from other third parties, including, without limitation, Beauty in a Beat’s suppliers, customers or vendors, including Stylists and Customers. Once Beauty in a Beat receives this information, it may be stored in locations such as, without limitation, Beauty in Beat’s servers or a third party’s servers supplying storage services to Beauty in a Beat. Any Personally or Non-Personally Identifiable Information received by Beauty in a Beat from a third party will be subject to this Privacy Policy and Beaut in a Beat will treat it the same as though Beauty in a Beat had collected the information itself.
