Sharing Information With Agents, Consultants, and Related Third Parties
We, like many businesses, sometimes engage other companies to perform certain business-related functions. These companies may include marketing agencies, database service providers, backup and disaster recovery service providers, email service providers, payment processors, and others. When we engage another company to perform such functions, we may provide it with personally identifiable information, Automatic Data, or aggregate information about our customers, sales, website traffic patterns, and related website information in connection with its performance of such functions. However, Freeman® Beauty does not collect or store credit card information or internet protocol addresses directly; rather, we employ a third party payment processor who collects, stores, and uses such information. We take measures to select product or service providers that are responsible and afford privacy protections to their customers, such as those that comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. However, we cannot make any representations or assurances about the practices and policies of these third party companies.

In connection with strategic marketing alliances or partnerships, we will retain all ownership rights to the personally identifiable and other information, and we will not share your personally identifiable information.
Sharing Information Through Social Media
We work with third parties, including social media sites like Facebook,Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Pinterest, and Google+, and with application developers who specialize in social commerce so you can connect to Freeman® Beauty through your social networks. All of these companies operate Third Party Sites, as defined in section 8. We provide access to our website by third parties and business partners so we can generate interest in our products and services among members of your social networks and to allow you to share your interests with friends in your network.
If you use features made available on our website by a third party social media site, your personally identifiable information may be collected or shared by us or by the third party. We consider information collected or shared through any such social media features as public information because the third party social media sites made it publicly available. If you do not want us to be able to access information about you from Third Party Sites, you must instruct the Third Party Sites not to share the information with us. Freeman® Beauty does not control how these third parties use information collected from or about you, so be sure to review the privacy policies and privacy settings on your social media sites to make sure you understand the information they are sharing. If you do not want a Third Party Site to share information about you, you must contact that site and determine whether it gives you the opportunity to opt out of sharing such information. We do identify any areas on the website where you may share information via third parties, such as social media sites.
We use features on third party social media sites that allow you to express opinions about products, services, or your interests and purchase our products. Those Third Party Sites may collect or register your views (including whether you liked or purchased a product) and make those views available to Freeman® Beauty and on public portions of the Third Party Sites. You can avoid such collection and use of your personally identifiable information by declining to buy products through Third Party Sites or to express your views on Third Party Sites. Third Party Sites may also give you the option to limit such data collection and disclosure in the privacy settings on their sites. Freeman® Beauty reserves its right not to display your personally identifiable information or content on our social media accounts and our website, even if you express an opinion about our products or consent to our use of such information or content.
