At Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Hong Kong Limited, we are committed to protecting your personal information and respecting your privacy. It is your personal data and we respect that.
ABOUT US – WHO IS THE CHARLOTTE TILBURY GROUP?
However, we are part of a wider group of Charlotte Tilbury companies that run and operate the Charlotte Tilbury business elsewhere across the globe. This includes in the UK, US, Canada, Spain, France, the Netherlands and Germany. When we refer to the Charlotte Tilbury Group we are referring to the wider group of Charlotte Tilbury companies.
We may share your personal data with other companies within the Charlotte Tilbury Group to enable us to run data analysis, develop new products, for other business development purposes and/or to allow another Charlotte Tilbury Group company to perform services on our behalf. Where we do this, we have written contracts in place between the companies within the Charlotte Tilbury Group to ensure your privacy is secure and respected.
You can purchase Charlotte Tilbury products and services at a Charlotte Tilbury concession in the store of our retail partner Lane Crawford (‘Concession’). Please note that when you purchase any products in the Concession you are contracting directly with us and we are the data controller and data user of any personal data we collect when you purchase products at the Concession.
ONLINE RETAIL PARTNER
You can also purchase Charlotte Tilbury products and services via the website of our retail partner in Hong Kong, Lane Crawford. (‘Retail Partner’). Please note that when you are purchasing Charlotte Tilbury products and/or services online through the Retail Partner you are contracting directly with that Retail Partner and not with us or the wider Charlotte Tilbury Group.
Any personal data which you provide to a Retail Partner will be controlled by the Retail Partner and you should visit the Retail Partner’s website or contact them directly if you have any questions about how they process, handle and use your personal data.

SEEING ADVERTISEMENTS FOR OUR WEBSITE ONLINE
We, like many other companies, target Charlotte Tilbury ads and banners to you when you are browsing on apps and other websites. We do this by way of various ad exchanges and digital marketing networks. We use various advertising technologies, for instance, ad tag, cookies, pixels, identifiers and web beacons. We also use services offered by some sites and social networks, for example, Facebook’s Custom Audiences.
The ads and banners you see are based on information that we hold about you, or on your prior use of our Website, for example, products you have browsed previously, content you have read on our Website, or on Charlotte Tilbury banners or ads that you have engaged with in the past.
MARKETING SERVICE PROVIDERS
Your personal data, which includes but is not limited to demographic information, transaction history, and online behaviour, may be shared with selected marketing service providers for the purposes of the following and is typically known as data profiling:
• helping us better understand the likely characteristics of our customers;
• creating predictive models that can offer suggestions and recommendations to you and other users about products or services that may interest you or them;
• improving the relevancy and appropriateness of our marketing to customers (e.g. offers, its products and services); and
• helping us to communicate with our customers more effectively offline and online. This may mean that you receive tailored advertising via direct mail or when you visit a website.
To ensure the security and protection of your data, all information shared with any marketing service providers will be transformed into a non-readable format. This means that your identifiable information will be removed and replaced with pseudonymous identifiers or encrypted tokens. The marketing service providers may have the capability to match the data we share with them with data from their or other third party sources. For example, combining the non-readable data received from us with data collected from various reputable sources to gain more comprehensive insights into consumer behaviour and preferences.
We use CCTV surveillance systems (the “CCTV System”) at our concession stores in Hong Kong for the purposes of: (i) prevention, reduction, detection, investigation or prosecution of any crime and other incidents; (ii) ensuring the safety of staff, visitors and customers; (iii) assisting in the investigation of suspected breaches of our regulations by staff, visitors or customers; and (iv) data analytics.
With regard to the use of our CCTV System for data analytics, only non-personally identificable information is collected on an anonymized basis by our service provider, such as data captured in real-time from our CCTV System to determine demographics, track footfall, engagement time, and so on. No faceprint data or individual profiles are captured or stored for data analytics purposes. No footage or images from our CCTV System are collected or stored by our service provider for data analystics purposes.
Appropriate signage will be in place in all locations where CCTV Systems are deployed, to inform individuals of their presence.
We have in place appropriate security measures and access controls to prevent any unauthorized access to our CCTV System and all recorded images. Our Head of Workplace Technology and Infrastructure is responsible for the overall management and operation of the CCTV System and the recorded images, including activities relating to installation, recording, reviewing, monitoring, disposal and dislclosure.
Unless required for evidential purposes, the investigation of an offence, a security incident or as required by law, or for any other directly related purpose, the CCTV images will be deleted within 22 days of being captured.
INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA
We are a global business and some of our group companies and service providers are located outside of Hong Kong.
As a result, it may be necessary for the personal data that we collect from you to be transferred to or accessed from outside Hong Kong in order for us to provide our services.
HOW LONG WILL WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We may also keep hold of some of your personal data if we are required to do so for legal purposes, for example, to meet our legal or regulatory requirements or to prevent fraud and abuse. For example, we will keep your order data for five years after you place an order with us to allow us to comply with our legal obligations.
When we are no longer required to keep your personal data, your data will either be deleted or completely anonymised. For example, by aggregation with other data so that it can be used in a non-identifiable way for business planning and analysis purposes.
ENSURING YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS UP TO DATE AND CORRECT
It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. If you have an account with us, please keep your details up-to-date.
We are committed to ensuring that your personal data is secure and we have put in place suitable physical, electronic, contractual and managerial procedures, including our Information Security Management System and Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption, to protect your personal data. Our employees who have access to and process your personal data are obliged to respect the confidentiality and security of your personal data.

RIGHT TO OBJECT
If you are dissatisfied with how we have handled your personal data, you have the right to make a complaint to your data protection regulator. In Hong Kong, this is the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (’PCPD’). You can make a complaint to the PCPD by calling their helpline on 2827 2827 or emailing them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We would, however, appreciate the chance to deal with your concerns before you approach the ICO or, (if you’re based outside of the UK, your data protection regulator), so please do contact us in the first instance.
You need to be over 18 to create an account with us or to sign up for our newsletter. We will not knowingly collect data about under 18s and if you are under 18, please do not provide us with your personal information. We would ask parents to please ensure that their children that are under 18 do not provide us with any personal information without their permission. If you believe that a child who is under 18 has provided personal data to us, please contact us, using the details below and we will seek to delete that data from our systems.
For advertising purposes, we occasionally use information about our customers to generate a "lookalike audience" or similar audience of prospective customers through the Facebook, Google, Snapchat, Pinterest or TikTok advertising platforms. This allows us to target advertisements on their networks to potential customers who appear to have shared interests or similar demographics to our existing customers, based on the platforms' own data. We typically do this by uploading a list of email addresses. These third parties’ policy is to irreversibly hash (encrypt) such lists prior to uploading, match the hashed data against their own customers, generate the lookalike audience, then delete the uploaded list and use it for no other purpose. We do not have access to the identity of anybody in the lookalike audience, unless they choose to click on the ads. Based on this, we believe that generating lookalike audiences poses little or no threat to the privacy of our customers. If you wish to opt out of "similar audiences" in Google, you can do so through your Ads Settings. Many of the companies that display interest-based advertising are members of the Network Advertising Initiative ("NAI") and/or Digital Advertising Alliance ("DAA"). To learn more about interest-based advertising and how you may be able to opt-out of interest-based advertising, tracking, and/or sharing of tracking data by their members, visit their online resources at www.networkadvertising.org/choices and www.aboutads.info/choices, respectively.
