b. Non-Personal Information CHANEL hosted or sponsored websites:
CHANEL collects certain aggregate and non-personal information when you visit the Sites. This information does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. It tells CHANEL such things as how many users visited the Sites and the pages accessed. Collecting this information helps CHANEL tailor our Sites to our visitors.
When you visit the Sites to browse, read or download information, CHANEL automatically collect standard computer information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, browser type and language, access times and referring website addresses. We generally do not link standard computer information to anything that will allow us to identify users unless to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service or to protect our service, sites, users or others.
CHANEL may also collect aggregate and non-personal information through “cookies” or “web beacons,” as explained below.
Cookies: Cookies are pieces of information that any website may transfer to your browser that are then stored in your computer system. Cookies are returned to the website that deposited them when a visitor returns to that site. Cookies tell us, for example, whether a user is a first time visitor or has visited the Sites before and what areas of the websites are of greatest interest to the user. The deposit of cookies by the Sites may enhance your online experience by allowing us to save your preferences for your next visit. Our cookies may also measure the general activity on the Sites, which allows us to determine which areas and features are most popular. This information allows us to make improvements to our Sites.
Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. You can, however, reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. If you choose to decline cookies, some of the functionality of the Sites may be impaired.
Web Beacons: Web beacons, also known as “clear gifs,” “one-pixel gifs,” “web bugs,” “Internet tags” or “pixel tags,” are small graphic images on a website or in an e-mail that allow us and third parties to monitor the activity on the Sites or to make cookies more effective. Web beacons allow us, or third parties working on our behalf, to gauge and enhance the effectiveness of our marketing by transmitting information about whether you follow links in our e-mails or websites, and by gathering information about the sites you visit before and after visiting our websites. We use log files to store the data that is collected through Web beacons.
- 3. The protection of information
Protecting your information is of primary concern to CHANEL and any information that is collected, is stored on secure servers and CHANEL takes all reasonable precautions to protect that personal information.
However, no data storage or data transfer system is 100% secure, error-free or free from vulnerabilities. CHANEL cannot guarantee the security of our databases or services, nor can CHANEL guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted by us over the Internet. CHANEL are not responsible for the actions of third parties.
- 4. The purposes for which CHANEL collects, holds, uses and discloses personal information
CHANEL uses the personal information that you provide to conduct its business with you, to facilitate and manage its dealings and relationships with you and for any other purpose for which you disclose your personal information. CHANEL may also use the information that you provide to create a personal customer profile in order to let you know of products or events that may be of interest to you and to streamline future purchases, as applicable.
CHANEL may combine your personal information provided on the CHANEL file card with any other of your personal information obtained from its web-sites in order to better tailor marketing or web-site content for other related purposes.
- 5. Disclose of personal information to overseas recipients
Subject to the following paragraphs and the disclosures discussed in them, CHANEL will neither disclose nor sell any information about you to a party unaffiliated with CHANEL. CHANEL may disclose your personal information if:
(a) required to do so by law or legal process,
(b) we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm, financial loss or injury to, or interference with our rights or property;
(c) we reasonably believe that information has been used in order to commit unlawful acts or acts that may endanger the health and/or safety of the public;
(d) in connection with the investigation into suspected or actual illegal activity;
(e) we believe the law in good faith requires such disclosure.
CHANEL may appoint third party service providers to administer and/or operate certain functions or services on our behalf, the proper performance of which may require a transfer of the information submitted by or collected from you. The functions or services include for example, administering and analysing the electronic database for CHANEL for marketing purposes and delivering marketing or other communications to you about our products, services or special events. Any such transfer shall be subject to confidentiality and security obligations and for the sole purpose of the performance of those functions or services.
CHANEL may also share your personal information with other third parties for joint marketing and promotions of products, services or events that may be of interest to you. Any transfers of personal information shall be subject to confidentiality and security obligations and for the sole purpose of the performance of those obligations.
The third party service providers may be located outside of Australia and New Zealand which will mean that your personal information may be transferred out of Australia and New Zealand. In this event, CHANEL will ensure that the third party service provider is subject to a law or binding scheme, that has the effect of protecting your personal information in a way that overall, is at least substantially similar to that governing the protection of your personal information under Australian law and under New Zealand law.
The countries to which your personal information may be transferred are likely to include Singapore and Hong Kong.
