SWIVEL Privacy Notice
Swivel Beauty, Inc. (“Swivel”) respects your concerns about privacy. This Privacy Notice describes the types of personal information we collect on our website, www.swivelbeauty.com (the “Site”) and all other products and services, including mobile applications, owned, controlled or offered by Swivel (the “Services”), how we may use the information and with whom we may share it. This notice also describes the measures we take to safeguard the personal information and how users can contact us about our privacy practices.
Information We Obtain
We may obtain certain personal information about you in connection with your use of the Site and the Services, such as:
● Contact information (such as name, postal address, email address and telephone number);
● Username and password;
● Geolocation information;
● Payment information (such as your payment card number, expiration date, authorization number or security code, delivery address, and billing address);
● Information regarding your hair type, stylist preferences, and appointment history; and
● Other personal information contained in content you choose to submit, such as photographs, comments, or other information you provide in your reviews.
In addition, we may obtain certain information by automated means, such as cookies, web server logs and web beacons. The information collected in this manner may include IP addresses, operating systems type, browser type, domain and other system settings.
A “cookie” is a text file that websites send to a visitor’s computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store information or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an Internet tag, pixel tag, or clear GIF, links web pages to web servers and their cookies and may be used to transmit information collected through cookies back to a web server. Through these automated collection methods, we obtain “clickstream data,” which is a log of content on which a visitor clicks while browsing a website. As the visitor clicks through the website, a record of the action may be collected and stored. Your browser may tell you how to be notified when you receive certain types of cookies or how to restrict or disable certain types of cookies. Please note, however, that without cookies you may not be able to use all of the features of the Site or mobile application.
We may use third-party web analytics services on our Site and mobile application, such as those of Google Analytics. These services help us analyze how users use the Site and mobile application. The information collected for this purpose (including your IP address and other information collected by automated means) will be disclosed to or collected directly by these service providers. To learn about opting out of Google Analytics, you may visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
The providers of other third-party plug-ins on our Site and mobile application, such as social sharing tools, may use automated means to collect information regarding your use of the Site and mobile application and your interactions with the plug-ins. This information is subject to the privacy policies or notices of the plug-in providers and is not subject to this Privacy Notice. We are not responsible for these providers’ information practices.
How We Use The Information We Obtain
We may use the information you provide to:
● Respond to, process and communicate with you about your requests, inquiries and comments;
● create and manage your account;
● schedule and manage your appointments;
● offer and provide products and services to you;
● communicate with you about our products and services;
● administer your participation in special events, programs, surveys, contests, sweepstakes, and other offers or promotions (if you have not opted out of receiving such information);
● operate, evaluate and improve our business (including enhancing and improving our services, managing our communications; performing data analytics; and performing other internal functions);
● process payments;
● protect against, identify and prevent fraud and other unlawful activity, claims and other liabilities; and
● comply with applicable legal requirements, industry standards and our own policies and terms.
We also may use the information in other ways for which we provide specific notice at the time of collection.
We may use information obtained online through cookies, web beacons and other automated means for purposes such as customizing our visitors’ visits to the Site and Services and understanding the manner in which our visitors browse the Site and mobile application. We also use this information to help diagnose technical and service problems, to administer the Site and Services, to identify visitors to the Site and Services, and to gather demographic information about our visitors. We use clickstream data to determine how much time visitors spend on pages of the Site and mobile application, how visitors navigate through the Site and mobile application, and how we may tailor the Site and mobile application to better meet the needs of our visitors.
Neither the Site nor the mobile application is designed to respond to “do not track” signals received from browsers. Neither we nor third parties may collect personal information about our users’ online activities over time and across third-party websites.
Sharing of Information
We do not sell or otherwise disclose personal information we collect about you, except as described in this Privacy Notice. We may share your personal information with service providers who perform services on our behalf based on our instructions. We also may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law, regulation or legal process (such as a court order or subpoena), (ii) in response to requests by government agencies, such as law enforcement authorities, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss, or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual fraudulent or illegal activity. We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or asset (including in the event of a reorganization, dissolution or liquidation).
The Site and the Services are not intended for children under 13, and we do not knowingly collect information from children under the age of 13. Children aged 13 or older should not submit any personal information without the permission of their parents or guardians.
You may contact us as described in the “How To Contact Us” section below to ask us to remove your information from our mailing lists/update your preferences or submit a request.
How We Protect Personal Information
We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the personal information you provide against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use.

Linked websites may have their own privacy policies or notices, which we strongly suggest you review if you visit any linked websites. We are not responsible for the content of any websites that are not affiliated with Swivel, any use of those websites, or the privacy practices of those websites.
