INFORMATION WE MAY COLLECT AND HOW WE COLLECT
INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US
Registration Information We may ask you to complete forms in our salons or through the website if you choose to register to use our services, enter contests or sweepstakes, complete a survey, or take advantage of promotions or special offers.

We may offer you the option to provide information or content that may be published or displayed on public areas of the website or transferred to other users of the website or third parties, such as information provided in a user profile, commenting features, chat rooms, discussion boards or blogs (collectively, “User Contributions”). If you create a user profile, it may include a profile photo; username(s); your gender; biographical details that you provide; links to your profiles on various social network sites; and a Sun Tan City user ID number that is created by Us and used to identify your account and user profile. User Contributions are posted and transmitted to others at your own risk. While you may set certain privacy settings for your User Contributions, no security measures are perfect and we cannot control the actions of other users of the website with whom you may choose to share your User Contributions. We cannot guarantee that your User Contributions will not be viewed by unauthorized persons. Additionally, you consent to our recording and storage of your User Contributions.
If you access the website on a mobile device, such as a phone or tablet, we collect your mobile device identifier and IP address.

We receive and store the information you provide, including your mobile telephone number, when you opt in to have text messages sent directly to your mobile device. You can adjust the types of notifications you receive and when you receive them by editing your text message settings. If you no longer wish to receive text messages from us, please log in to your account and change your settings or click on the “opt out” link contained in a text message received by you.

INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH AUTOMATIC DATA COLLECTION TECHNOLOGIES
Website Usage Information.
We may receive and store certain types of internet usage information whenever you visit the website, such as your traffic data, location data, pages visited, IP address, operating system, and metadata for items made available through the website, such as the date, time or location that a scanned photograph or video was taken or posted. We may combine this information with personally identifiable information we obtain from you directly on the website, or from third parties. This data helps us analyze how visitors arrive at the website, what type of content is most popular, and what type of visitors in the aggregate are interested in particular kinds of content and advertising.
A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. These small bits of code automatically identify your browser to the website whenever your computer is used to visit the website. Cookies also let us know how many people visit the website and where visitors go on the website, as well as non-personally identifiable information, like how many times a user has been on certain pages. For registered users, cookies can make using the website easier for you by saving information such as your passwords or preferences.
We may use local shared objects, also known as flash cookies, to store your preferences and navigation to, from and on our website. Third parties that provide certain features on our site or to display advertising based upon your Web browsing activity use flash cookies to collect and store information. Cookie management tools provided by your browser will not remove flash cookies. To learn more about and how to manage settings for flash cookies, please visit adobe.com. Disabling cookies may affect features or functionality of the website.
Web Beacons and Other Tracking Technology.
The website may use a variety of technologies for tracking purposes, including web beacons. Web beacons are small pieces of data that are embedded in images on the pages of websites. We may use these tracking technologies to analyze the traffic patterns on the website, such as the frequency with which our users visit various parts of the website. These technologies may involve the transmission of information either directly to us or to another party. We also may use these technologies in HTML emails that we send to determine whether the recipients have opened those emails and/or clicked on links in those emails. The information from use of these technologies may be collected in a form that is personally identifiable.
Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to digital services that a visitor does not want to have his or her online activity tracked. If a digital service that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that digital service from collecting certain personal information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not uniform. For this reason, we and many other digital service operators may not respond to DNT signals.
We may use Google Analytics or similar services that use technologies such as those described above to analyze use of the website and provide statistics and information about trends. You can visit Google’s website to learn more about Google’s privacy practices.

• Agents. We engage other businesses and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Examples may include fulfilling orders, sending emails, website analytics, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments and providing customer service. These businesses or individuals may have access to personally identifiable information needed to perform their functions.
• Interest-Based Advertising and IP Targeting. We may work with data providers to provide advertising to you through display media or other methods. These providers may use personal information that we have collected or that you have provided to locate you online, such as when you visit or log into websites or mobile applications.

• Third-Party Ad Serving and Audience and Traffic Measurement Services. We may use a third-party network advertiser to serve advertisements on the website and use a traffic measurement service to analyze traffic on the website. Network advertisers are third parties that display advertisements based on your visits to this website and other websites you have visited. Third-party ad serving enables us to target advertisements to you for products or services in which you might have an interest. Audience and traffic measurement services allow us to collect anonymous traffic and behavior information from the website by monitoring anonymous visitor activity. Such advertisers, sponsors and/or traffic measurement services may themselves set and access their cookies on your computer if you choose to have cookies enabled in your browser. Cookies may allow third parties to show you advertisements or content. Any images (or any other parts of a web page) served by third parties in association with third-party cookies may serve as web beacons, which enable third parties to carry out these activities. Other companies’ uses of their cookies are subject to their own privacy policies, not this one.
• Business Transfers. In the event that our assets are sold or transferred to another party, or another transaction occurs in which your personally identifiable information is one of the business assets transferred, all personally identifiable information that has been collected and saved, to the extent allowed to be transferred by law, may be one of the business assets we transfer. Your personally identifiable information may also be reviewed in connection with negotiations for a possible sale of assets by us. You will be notified if such a transfer occurs in accordance with the “Changes to the Policy” section.
• Protection and Safety. We may disclose your information to third parties without notice to you if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of Sun Tan City, our customers or others, or when we have a good faith belief that there is an emergency that poses a threat to the health or safety of any person.
