The Parfumerie and its affiliates recognize the importance of effective and meaningful privacy protections when it collects, uses, and discloses Personal Information.
As part of our business operations we make an ongoing effort to safeguard and protect nonpublic information whether it is nonpublic personal information, personally identifiable information or confidential business information. The information of our business partners and employees is very important to us - we do not sell confidential business or personally identifiable information. We only use, disclose, or share personal or confidential business information for business purposes as described in this policy.
What Data Do We Collect?
We collect information when a business or individual purchases any items from our site. This generally includes company name or individual buyer name, address and other relevant information that is provided to us.
Some of the information collected may, from time to time, depending on the requirements, fall into what is deemed “Personal Information” (“PI”) or “Nonpublic Personal Information” (“NPI”) which is data that identifies or has the potential to directly or indirectly identify a person taken alone or in combination with other information. Such data may include an individual’s name, address, e-mail address, date of birth, or financial account numbers.

You also agree to have that currency stored in a session cookie in your browser (a temporary cookie which gets automatically removed when you close your browser). We do this in order for the selected currency to remain selected and consistent when browsing our website so that the prices can convert to your (the visitor) local currency.

Our Website is not directed to and will not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of thirteen (13) without their parents’ consent.
Who Sees This Data
We may share personal information with other companies or individuals outside of The Parfumerie for the following limited purposes: (a) satisfy any applicable law, regulation, legal process or enforceable governmental request, (b) enforce applicable Terms of Service, including investigation of potential violations thereof, (c) detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues, or (d) protect against imminent harm to the rights, property or safety of its users, or the public as required or permitted by law. Privileged and Confidential Rev 05 01 2017 4. We may also from time to time use or share aggregated or de-identified nonpublic business or personal information for business purposes with business partners.
The Parfumerie uses information security policies that are designed to protect and secure the confidentiality and integrity of its business data whether it is nonpublic personal information or confidential business information. And, although administrative, technical and physical safeguards are in place, important regulatory concerns surround the secure use of the Internet, unforeseen system vulnerabilities, social engineering risks and the possibility of third-party negligence or malfeasance. These added risks are why The Parfumerie cannot guarantee that information will always remain absolutely confidential at all times.
So as noted even though we take precautions to secure our business partner’s information and apply commercially reasonable and appropriate safeguards we cannot guarantee information cybersecurity. To the extent you or others in your company access information on The Parfumerie through the use of a password, we ask that you keep your password confidential and secure because we cannot be responsible for acts resulting from the unauthorized use of your password or compromises to the security of your computers, networks or systems.
