7. How We Protect Your Personal Information

Personal information is maintained on our servers or those of our service providers, and is accessible by authorized employees, representatives, and agents as necessary for the purposes described in this privacy policy.

We realize that individuals trust us to protect their personal information. We maintain reasonable and appropriate physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards designed to help protect your personal information. While we attempt to protect your personal information in our possession, no method of transmission over the internet or security system is perfect, and we cannot promise that information about you will remain secure in all circumstances.

For your convenience, our websites and Sephora Mobile Apps include functionality that allows you to remain logged in so that you do not have to re-enter your password each time you want to access your account. If you choose to remain logged in, you should be aware that anyone with access to your device will be able to access and make changes to your account and may be able to make purchases through your account. For that reason, if you choose to remain logged in, we strongly recommend that you take appropriate steps (such as enabling the “Passcode Lock” security feature on your mobile device) to protect against unauthorized access to, and use, of your account. Please also notify us as soon as possible if you suspect any unauthorized use of your account or password.

8. Your Rights

Consistent with applicable law, you may exercise the rights described in this section. Please note that some of the rights may vary depending on your country, province, or state of residence.

The Right to Opt Out of Cookies and Sale/Sharing Using Online Tracking Technologies Our use of online tracking technologies may be considered a “sale” / “sharing” under applicable law. Visitors to our US website can opt out of being tracked by these third parties by clicking the “Your Privacy Choices” link at the bottom of our website and selecting their preferences, or by accessing “Contact Us, FAQ, Legal” in Sephora Mobile Apps.

If you do not have a Sephora account or if you are not logged into your Sephora account, your request to opt out of “sale” / “sharing” will be linked to your browser identifier only and not linked to any account information because the connection between your browser and the account is not known to us.

You may opt out by broadcasting an Opt-Out Preference Signal, such as the Global Privacy Control (GPC) (on the browsers and/or browser extensions that support such a signal). To download and use a browser supporting the GPC browser signal, click here: https://globalprivacycontrol.org/orgs. If you choose to use the GPC signal, you will need to turn it on for each supported browser or browser extension you use.

If you would like us to make the connection between your browser and your account when you send the opt-out of “sale” / “sharing” of your personal information request or GPC signal, and you have not yet opted out of “sale” / “sharing” your personal information, we recommend you submit the Do Not Sell or Share Personal Information form that is in Your Privacy Choices. As stated above, the Your Privacy Choices link is available at the bottom of the Sephora website and under “Contact Us, FAQ, Legal” in Sephora Mobile Apps.

You can opt out of targeted advertising by clicking the “Your Privacy Choices” link at the bottom of our website and selecting the appropriate preferences, or under “Contact Us, FAQ, Legal” in Sephora Mobile Apps.

Categories of personal information disclosed that may be considered “sale” / “sharing”: Basic Identifying Information, Device Information and Other Unique Identifiers, Internet or Other Network Activity, Geolocation Data, and Commercial Data.

Categories of third parties to whom personal information was disclosed that may be considered “sale”/ “sharing” include advertisers and marketing partners, data analytics providers, and social media networks.

Residents of Canada can control the use of cookies and other online tracking technologies on our website by us and by third parties (including advertisers and marketing partners, data analytics providers, and social media networks) through our consent management tools. Depending on your province of residence, the consent management tool may be available through the “Cookie Preferences” link at the bottom of our website or through a banner that presents itself when you visit the website or open the App.

The Right to Limit the Use of Sensitive Personal Information As mentioned above, Sephora only collects sensitive personal information, as defined by applicable privacy laws, for the purposes allowed by law or with your consent. Sephora does not collect or process sensitive personal information for the purpose of inferring characteristics about you.

Some of the purposes for the collection and processing of sensitive personal information allowed by law include: to perform the services or provide the goods reasonably expected; to prevent, detect, and investigate security incidents; to resist malicious, deceptive fraudulent, or illegal actions directed at Sephora and to prosecute those responsible for those actions; to ensure the physical safety of natural persons; for short-term, transient use; to perform services on behalf of Sephora; and to verify or maintain the quality or safety of a product or service provided by Sephora.

Therefore, Sephora does not offer the right to limit the use of sensitive personal information.

  • Logging into your account on Sephora.com or Sephora.ca, as applicable; or

  • Calling 1-877-SEPHORA; or

  • Visiting a Sephora or Sephora at Kohl’s store and speaking with a representative.

If you have given Sephora permission to store your credit card information and you don’t want merchants like Sephora to receive your updated credit card information through your credit card issuer’s account updater service, please contact your card issuer.

You may submit a request for a copy of the information collected about you by following the steps outlined in the “Your Rights” section above. Depending on your state of residence, you may request for a copy of the information up to twice per year per customer.

Responding to Requests Once you have submitted your request, we will respond within the time frame permitted by the applicable law. Please note that we may charge a reasonable fee for multiple requests in the same 12-month period, as permitted by law.

To do so, please contact us in any of the ways listed in the "Communicating With Us" section. We respond to all appeal requests as soon as we reasonably can, and no later than legally required. If you are a resident of Canada, you may have the right to complain to a privacy commissioner about our decision with respect to your request.

Identity Verification For us to process some requests, we will need to verify your identity to confirm that the request came from you. We may contact you by phone or e-mail to verify your request. Depending on your request, we will ask for information such as your name, an e-mail address that you have used with Sephora, or a phone number you have used with Sephora. For certain requests, we may also ask you to provide details about the most recent purchase you made online or in store.

Authorized Agent Depending on your state of residence in the U.S., you may designate an authorized agent to submit a request on your behalf to access or delete your personal information. To do so, you must: (1) provide that authorized agent written and signed permission to submit such request; and (2) verify your own identity directly with us. Please note, we may deny a request from an authorized agent that does not submit proof that they have been authorized by you to act on your behalf.

If you have been designated as an authorized agent to submit a request on behalf of another customer, you must make the appropriate selection when you submit a Request Form.
