Privacy Policy

Legal Statement

This Privacy Policy is incorporated by reference into the Poshly’s Terms of Service. The term “We,” “Us,” “Our,” or “Poshly” includes Poshly Inc., our affiliates, and Poshly.com. It explains how we may: collect, use and disclose the information we obtain through the Poshly Service.

The "Poshly Service" is defined as Poshly.com and the associated mobile applications and Internet service under our control, whether partial or otherwise, in connection with providing a platform for Poshly services.

Policy Scope

This Privacy Policy covers how we treat personal information ("Personal Information") and other information that we collect through the Poshly Service.

Personal Information Defined

We consider "Personal Information" to include information that alone or when in combination with other information may be used to readily identify, contact, or locate you, such as: name, address, email address, or phone number. We do not consider Personal Information to include information that has been anonymized so that it does not allow a third party to easily identify a specific individual.

New Uses of Personal Information and Other Information

From time to time, we may use Personal Information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our Privacy Policy. If our information practices change regarding information previously collected, we will take reasonable efforts to provide notice and obtain consent to any such uses as required by law.

Posting of Revised Privacy Policy

We will post any changes to this Privacy Policy on this web page. The revised version will be effective at the time it is posted. If you are concerned about how your information is used, bookmark this page and read this Privacy Policy periodically.

Other Websites and Pages

When you navigate away from the Poshly Service to websites or apps controlled by third parties, you leave the Poshly Service, at which point this Privacy Policy no longer applies. You will not receive a notice warning when you leave the Poshly Service.

WE COLLECT YOUR INFORMATION

The Poshly Service collects Personal Information about you when you register to become a member. To become a member, you must provide your email address and password. You may use the Poshly Service without becoming a member, but you will have access to limited functionality.

The Poshly Service may also collect Personal Information when you participate in a giveaway or contest or when you post it in product reviews.

Non-Personal Information Collection

The Poshly Service may collect Non-Personal Information as you use it, such as:

HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION

Internal and Service-Related Usage

Giveaways and Contests

We may use Personal Information to contact you regarding a giveaway or contest and to distribute prizes.

We use data from your ratings and physical characteristics to provide aggregate statistics for market research and statistical analysis to improve our recommendation algorithm, so that we can provide better recommendations to you and other users. We are aware of the sensitivity of certain types of data, and we do not share any of this data combined with your Personal Information.

  • Provide customer support;
  • Track the types of questions we receive;
  • Analyze trends;
  • Track user movement;

WE MAY DISCLOSE YOUR INFORMATION

Vendors and Suppliers

The Poshly Service uses Personal Information for internal and service-related purposes only and may provide it to third parties to allow Poshly to offer the Poshly Service.

Direct Marketing

We do not rent, sell, or share Personal Information about you with other people or nonaffiliated companies for direct marketing purposes.

Your Physical Characteristics, Ratings, and Reviews

We disclose anonymized, aggregated data comprised of users’ physical characteristics, ratings, and reviews to third parties in the ordinary course of our business. For example, we may share the fact that 80 percent of brown haired women highly rated a particular shade of mascara. Those third parties may use that information to display targeted marketing to users matching certain characteristics.
