How We Collect Information (USA)
ANISA collects information that you provide to us, information from your engagement with our Site, advertising and media, and information from third parties who have gained your consent to share it. We may combine information that we collect via one method (e.g., from a website, our digital advertising engagement) with another method (e.g., an offline event). We do this to get a more complete view of preferences for our beauty products and services, which, in turn, allows us to serve you better and with more customization and better beauty products.
Examples of the type of information collected are name, shipping and billing address, phone number, email address, and credit card information. We collect personal information when you register as a member with ANISA, order products from ANISA, visit www.anisabeauty.com, and when you enter promotions or sweepstakes. We use the information collected to better understand your needs, fulfill your specific requests for products and services, improve our products and services, and to contact you regarding any offers that may be off interest. Here are some specific examples of the type of information we collect and how we may use it:
Personal Information You Provide
When you create an account on a ANISA site, make purchases with us (online or in-store), join a loyalty program, enter a contest, share photograph, video or product reviews, sign up to receive offers or email, we collect the information that you provide to us. This information includes Personal Information (information that can be used to identify you as an individual) such as your name, social media handle, email, telephone number, home address, and payment information (such as account or credit card number).

If you use our virtual try on features, we may collect and store your image(s), for example, if you use social sharing to send your image to a friend or post it online or if you save it to your profile.

We may share information to trusted partners who need to access your customer information in order to provide operational or other support services to us. These companies are not authorized to use any information we share with them for any other purpose.
We may share information with affiliated entities, including without limitation companies that own or are owned by ANISA and/or its principals.
We gather only customer information that is needed to administer business, provide superior service and communicate with you offers on products and services that we believe will be of interest to you.
We may periodically send promotional email about new products, special offers, service announcements, and administrative messages using the email address, which you have provided.
We limit access to your personal information to those employees who need it to carry out their business functions. We educate our employees about our policies and practices in regard to safeguarding customer information; preventing its unauthorized access or disclosure; and, ensuring its proper handling. We may be required by law to disclose such information in response to subpoenas, court orders, or requests from law-enforcement officials.

In some instances, these ad network providers, advertisers, sponsors, and/or analytics service providers may use their own tracking technology to capture information about your device, use and engagement online.
You can opt out of receiving targeted advertising through the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) Opt–Out Page. Options are Device-specific, so if you use multiple Devices, you should opt out on each one. You can also opt out of certain targeted advertising programs by clicking on the AdChoices icon that may appear on some of our advertising. Some social networks, such as Facebook, allow you to exercise ad choices on that platform. We may use more than one third party company for placing this advertising, which requires opt out of each program. You will still see advertisements while you're browsing online but they may not be targeted to you based on your interests. The NAI Opt–Out Page provides a tool that identifies its member companies that have cookies on your browser and provides links to those companies.
