Privacy & Security

How do we protect your information?

All the customer information (including your name, email address, mailing address, credit card information and purchase history) is protected by using secure servers that encrypt the information you input before it is sent to us.

When you place an order with us, we protect your credit card information by using a secure server (SSL- secure socket layer-encryption, the Internet standard for secure transactions) for browsers that can accept it. SSL encrypts your ordering information, such as your name and credit card details so that they can't be read in transit. The financial data is available only to the banks and credit card clearing services for the purpose of processing payments. 

As an additional safety concern, please be assured that once the transaction is complete, your credit card details will not be stored on our database along with your other personal details. 

Only you know your password. The information you provide us may be transferred securely outside the United Kingdom for the purpose of operating our site or to maintain your customer account. Beauty Brand Partners employees will never ask you for your details in an unsolicited email or telephone call. All the consumer information is stored on a separate and secure database, which is not directly accessible from the Internet. At Beauty Brand Partners we regularly review the security measures to ensure that our site is safe and secure, from our consumers’ point of view.

If you are still unsure about sending your credit card details over the internet. You may place your order over the telephone by calling customer services anytime Monday to Friday between 9.00 am to 5.00 pm GMT on 01508 558538.

This information is required for the sole purpose of easing and enhancing your overall shopping experience and will not be passed on to a 3rd party unless you specify so. 

Use of cookies:

What are cookies? 

A cookie is a tiny text file that contains some information that may be passed back and forth between your browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari) and a computer running a website (typically the site that set the cookie). It is only a plain text file, does not contain any code and cannot do anything. Most websites set them and many cannot function properly without them. Typically they just contain an identifier so that the server knows that it has seen this visitor before. This means, for example, that someone can log in to a website and stay logged in, they can set their preferences or not be repeatedly shown the same information. If a website didn't use cookies it would think you were a new user every time you moved to a different page.
