Please note that if you choose to share information about yourself in an open format, such as through a Third Party website like Facebook or Twitter or in any user-generated content elements of our own website, we consider that information to be public information – and not personal information.

PHS HAIRSCIENCE® uses “cookies”, where a small data file is sent to your browser to store and track information regarding you when you enter our web site. The cookie is used to track information such as frequency of website visit and duration of visit and web pages visited. This is to allow us to understand our web traffic better and pave way for our future site improvement. While this cookie can tell us when you enter our web site and which web pages you visit, it cannot read data off your hard disk.
4. CONFIDENTIALITY & SECURITY
We have limit access to personal information about you to a small number of our employees who we believe reasonably need to come into contact with that information to provide products or services to you.
Our site hosting provider is also bounded by a legal contract to assist us to protect your personal information. We urge you to protect your own privacy. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone or share your password in an unsolicited phone call or e-mail. Unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions. For example, we cannot ensure the security of your data during transmission to us or the security of your data on an iPhone (or other telephone device that can use iPhone applications) or on your Twitter page or on another computer. This reality is true of all Internet or data transmission use. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk. Nonetheless, we may release personal information about you if we are required to disclose such information by the order of a government authority or a court or tribunal of competent jurisdiction, or pursuant to any act, statute, law, or regulation but only for the purpose of such disclosure and to the extent so required to be disclosed.
PHS HAIRSCIENCE may update this policy from time to time in view of market needs. We will notify you about significant changes in the way we treat personal information by placing a prominent notice on our website.
