Other occasions when KF Beauty obtains information from individuals include (1) when an individual is making a claim for a prize or seeking to redeem an incentive offered by KF Beauty. by a third party, (2) when an individual requests assistance through KF Beauty customer service department, (3) when an individual voluntarily subscribes to a KF Beauty service or newsletter and (4) when an individual voluntarily leaves a customer review for, rating for, or image of themselves using, a KF Beauty product (together, "Other Information").
Cookies, Web Beacons, and Other Info Collected Using Technology. KF Beauty currently uses cookie and web beacon technology to associate certain Internet-related information about an individual with information about the individual in our database. Additionally, KF Beauty may use other new and evolving sources of information in the future (together, "Technology Information").
(a) Cookies. A cookie is a small amount of data stored on the hard drive of the individual's computer that allows KF Beauty to identify the individual with his or her corresponding data that resides in KF Beauty database. You may read more about cookies at http://cookiecentral.com. Individuals who use the Websites need to accept cookies to use all of the features and functionality of the Websites.
(b) Web Beacons. A web beacon is programming code that can be used to display an image on a web page (by using a programming function -- see http://truste.org for more information), but can also be used to transfer an individual's unique user identification (often in the form of a cookie) to a database and associate the individual with previously acquired information about an individual in a database. This allows KF Beauty to track certain web sites and individual visits online. Web beacons are used to determine products or services an individual may be interested in, and to track online behavioural habits for marketing purposes. For example, KF Beauty might place, with the consent of a third-party website, a web beacon on the third party's website where Hockey products are sold. When Mark, an individual listed in KF Beauty database, visits the Hockey website, KF Beauty receives notice by means of the web beacon that Mark visited the Hockey site, and KF Beauty would then update
Mark's profile with the information that Mark is interested in Hockey. KF Beauty may thereafter present offers of Hockey related products and services to Mark.
