Privacy Policy

Privacy and Security Statement

Last Updated and Effective Date: July 1, 2022

This privacy policy (“Privacy Policy”) describes the policies and procedures of Edge Systems LLC d/b/a ‘The Hydrafacial Company’ (“HydraFacial” or “we” or “us”) relating to the information we collect when you – an end consumer or an aesthetician provider who has registered for our HydraFacial NationTM application (app) use that app or receive (in the case of a customer) or deliver (in the case of a provider) our HydraFacial services through a connected HydraFacial device (such as a Syndeo device).

We value the privacy and security of your “personal information”, which – as used herein – means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. Personal information does not include information that does not and cannot identify you, such as data that has been anonymized.

The purpose of this Privacy Policy is to provide you with a description of our personal information collection, use, and disclosure practices. If you provide us with your personal information, or we obtain personal information about you from other sources, we treat your personal information according to this Privacy Policy.

HOW YOU ACCEPT THE TERMS AND UPDATES TO THE PRIVACY POLICY

You consent to and agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy by expressly accepting the terms of the Privacy Policy (or as you receive or deliver our HydraFacial services through a connected HydraFacial device, as described above). From time to time, we will update this Privacy Policy as we adopt new practices and procedures related to your personal information. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will be available in the HydraFacial NationTM app (or as otherwise referenced in your Sydeo device materials) and will supersede this version. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will revise the “Last Updated and Effective Date” written above, and reflect that date in the then revised draft.

INFORMATION COLLECTION

When you use our application or receive or deliver our HydraFacial services through a connected HydraFacial device, as described above, we may collect the following types of personal information:

  • Contact/Account Information. Any information that you voluntarily provide us with – such as your name, email address, account username, account password, location, and/or any other information you wish to communicate to us (including, if you’re an aesthetician, the name of your business or employer, address, phone number). We collect this information to provide our various services to you, process your request to conduct business with us, provide customer service, and for business and marketing purposes.
  • Payment Processing. Your name or company name, credit card or debit card information, other payment information, and billing address that you provide. We collect this information so that we can process your payment for orders and for other business and accounting purposes.
  • Technical Data. Your Internet Protocol address and information regarding your operating system, device, and location. We collect this information to recognize you, to learn more about the users of our application and services, to customize and improve your experience on our application and with our services, and for business and marketing purposes.
  • Biometric Data. When you use our application’s ‘Selfie Assessment Tool’, you have the option to provide a facial photograph, your age, and information about your skin and skincare concerns. We use this information to help provide you with a customized skin health assessment. In addition, you may have the opportunity to publish, transmit, submit, or otherwise post reviews, ratings, comments, feedback, Selfie Assessment information, or other materials on the application that may contain your personal information.  Your Biometric Data will be used anonymously to train our skin assessment AI model to improve our customized skin health assessment.

By choosing to enter and submit the requested personal information when prompted, you are consenting to HydraFacial’s collection, use, and disclosure of such information for the purposes of providing the Services to you as outlined herein.

Also, location and app visitor behavior information is compiled in the aggregate (accordingly, it does not represent individually identifiable information).

  • Collected User Data. Your email address, phone number, date of birth, first name, last name, postal code, personal image, and geo-location.  We use this information for purposes such as account creation and management.
  • Treatment History. When consumers use a HydraFacial device, consumers have the option to track and repeat their individual treatment history by scanning the Hydrafacial Nation mobile app QR on the device. By doing so, consumers can create a log of their treatment history within the application. Treatment history includes the type of treatment received, any add-ons or adjustments, and the products used (as applicable). Consumers have the option to share their treatment history with aesthetician providers. Likewise, when aesthetician providers use a HydraFacial device, providers have the option to sync their application account with the device, which also creates a log of the providers’ treatment history. We use this information for business and marketing purposes.

HOW WE USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION

We do not sell your personal information to third parties. We may, however, share your personal information with service providers who assist us with our business functions — such as payment processing, packaging, and shipping.
