TESTIMONIALS


FAQ


How does Botox work?

Botulinum toxin, commonly referred to by the trade name "Botox" is a neurotoxic protein that prevents muscle contraction. Injected in small amounts to the upper face by a licensed medical professional, botox prevents the muscle contractions (such as raising the forehead or furrowing the brow) that cause wrinkles. While most of us call these neurotoxins "botox", much like we call all tissue "kleenex", botox is simply a brand name. Your provider may use other similar products such as Xeomin, Dysport, or Jeuveau.

It is important to understand, however, that there are two types of wrinkles/lines in the skin: dynamic (active) and static (present at rest). Dynamic wrinkles are those that are caused when facial muscles are contracted, or moving. These movements are decreased with botox, preventing the lines from becoming deeper. Static lines are those that are etched in the face over time and cannot be eliminated with botox use alone.

While static wrinkles cannot be erased by botox there are a number of other cosmetic procedures that can signiifcantly minimalize or even eliminate these wrinkles. Skin peels, microneedling, and microdermabrasion (used alone or in combination) are treatment options that have been proven to provide excellent results, especially when coupled with a medical grade skin care regimen. Talk to your aesthetic practitioner about which treatment is best for your needs. 

Is Botox painful?

Most people tolerate botox injections well, with minimal discomfort. Some injection sites may be more sensitive than others but any discomfort is typically gone as soon as the injection is complete. Certain physiologic factors, such as the phase of one's menstrual cycle, may make certain parts of the face more sensitive during certain times of the month. If you're still concerned, talk with your aesthetic practitioner about ways to minimize discomfort. 

How much Botox do I need?

Many clients ask how many units of botox they will need. While every person is unique in the strength of their muscles and rate at which they metabolize botox,  you should anticipate requiring anywhere from 30-50 units on your first visit. If you're diligent about returning as soon as you begin to see muscle movement (rather than waiting for all movement to return), touch-ups typically require fewer units. See our "gallery" section for a diagram outlining average units of botox needed for various facial regions.

** Update: Because we found that so many clients were bargaining for fewer units to save money (and thus, not getting the results they desired) we are now charging per area rather than per unit. Prices are based on the average client's average need/spend. What does this mean for you? Pricing is transparent (there are no surprises!) and you get the result you desire (let us worry about the units!). 

How often will I need Botox?

Every body metabolizes botox differently, which means that there is no set time interval that you will need to return for touch-ups. A good general rule is 4-6 weeks, understanding that depending on your body you might need a touch-up sooner or might be able to go 3-4 months before needing one. Be sure to reach out to your medical aesthetician as soon as you begin to notice muscular movement is returning to ensure you can get on the schedule before effects fully wear off. 

Is Botox only for women?

Absolutely not! Anyone can benefit from botox! We have several male clients who see us regularly to treat current problem areas  and prevent new wrinkle development. Botox can also be used to control excessive sweating or "hyperhydrosis" which affects men as well as women. 

What is microneedling?

Because your safety is our first priority, at ALLYN aesthetics & wellness we only use SkinPen by Bellus Medical, the first and only FDA-cleared microneedling device.

Microneedling causes tiny ("micro") injuries to both the surface and deeper layers of the skin, stimulating your body’s natural wound healing processes, while minimizing cellular damage. This process of injuring and then repairing the skin results in restructuring and remodeling of irregularities in the skin such as scar tissue. And, while microneedling was originally used for scar reduction, it can also greatly minimize fine lines, large pores, and discoloration.

There are three phases of this process:

          1. Inflammation is triggered by repeatedly puncturing the skin causes small injuries sends the body's immune system into action. Chemical mediators are sent to the site of injury to disinfect the wounds, remove debris, increase blood flow, and begin to create new tissue.

          2. Proliferation is when injured tissue is then rebuilt by granulation cells (part of the extracellular matrix) and angiogenesis (development of new blood vessels) occurs. These additional vessels allow for increased blood flow and oxygenation to the healing tissue.

          3. Remodeling occurs when the injured tissue is replaced by new, healthy skin and blood vessels. What then emerges is smoother, healthier, and more radiant tissue. 

My esthetician does microneedling and charges less- why should I come to you?

While aestheticians can perform microneedling, their scope of practice limits the depth at which the needle can penetrate. This may be effective for fine lines on the surface of the skin, however  this is not typically sufficient to correct deeper lines and scars. In order to penetrate the deeper levels of the dermis to reach and release the fibrous tissue that holds scars in place, needling needs to occur at depths that only a medical professional is qualified to perform. Additionally, it is important to ask your provider- whether aesthetician or medical professional- what equipment they use to protect your health and safety. Providers at  ALLYN aesthetics & wellness use SkinPen- the only FDA-approved microneedling device. For this reason, cost of service is reflective of both the level of education, training, and specialized skill needed to perform this depth of microneedling, as well as use of only the best and safest equipment and after care products.

I have a needling roller at home- isn't that good enough?

In order for microneedling to truly be effective the needles must penetrate the topmost layers of skin (epidermis) and reach the deeper layers of the dermis. 

I've heard of PRP but what's PRF?

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) and PRF (platelet-rich fibrin) are both components of your blood that can be used to heal and repair skin imperfections and improve tissue volume. PRF is thought of by many as the "next generation of PRP" because it's effects have shown to be far superior to those of PRP.  Fibrin, one of the body's many clotting factors, creates a spongy matrix, much like scaffolding, upon which new and healthy tissue can grow. Chock full of growth factors (stem cells) and inflammatory mediators that stimulate healing and growth, PRF has been likened to the fountain of youth for its anti-aging effects.

Many people opt for PRF facial volumization because effects are achieved with a natural product derived from one's own blood rather than injecting a foreign substance as is found in many commercial fillers. However, it is important to understand that the effects of PRF volumization are more subtle than those achieved with filler use. Usinf PRF is a great way to get a feel for what filler can do for your problem areas without committing to the longer-term effects of most other fillers. It is also a great way to give your entire face a youthful refresh!

The procedure begins with taking a blood sample (typically 2-4 vials depending on the intended use), and spinning the blood in a centrifuge to separate the different components. The PRF will then be drawn up into a syringe for use during your treatment. If spot-treating skin imperfections the PRF will be injected into those sites using a small needle. Similar injections will be made for volumization or filling of tear troughs, cheeks, and lips, although a larger volume of PRF will be injected into those areas. If using with microneedling, the PRF will be used much like a serum, applied topically to the skin and "needled" in using the handheld microneedling device. 

What is fibroblast skin tightening and how does it work?

Fibroblast skin tightening is a procedure performed by a licensed and trained aesthetic provider than can tighten and lift tissues of the face and body. Using a needletip "pen", the provider delivers tiny, targeted beams of energy in a specific pattern designed to tighten the tissue. Initial effect is that of many, tiny "dots" on the skin that will scab and fall off in roughly 2-3 weeks, revealing tighter, toned, and lifted tissue in the application area. 

What is DermaSweep?

Dermasweep is the 30-minute solution to all your skin concerns!  It's unique and customizable technology gently lifts away the top layer of skin, increases micro-circulation, and delivers key skin nutrients.  Exclusive solutions formulated with cutting-edge ingredients are added to target specific skincare needs.  From soothing Hyaluronic Acid to zero-downtime Peelfusions and the glamorous Red Carpet Ready treatment, to name just a few. Layered within one treatment or over a series of treatments, skin health is restored and signs of skin aging are reduced.

Is DermaSweep right for my skin type?

The beautify of DermaSweep is that it is appropriate and effective for most skin types. Use of the DermaSweep program allows for a multidimensional treatment that can be tailored to meet your individual skincare needs, with treatments aimed at resurfacing the skin as well as infusing powerful, restorative peptides and serums. The following skin concerns/conditions have been shown to benefit from use of the DermaSweep system:

- Sun damage
- Hyperpigmentation (dark spots)
- Fine lines
- Laxity (looseness of the skin)
- Decreased tone
- Uneven texture
- Blemishes (pimples/breakouts)
- Reactive skin
- Dry skin
- Oily skin
- Acne scarring 

Is DermaSweep the same as microdermabrasion?

While DermaSweep and traditional microdermabrasion both exfoliate the skin, the use of bristles instead of crystals gives DermaSweep more flexibility for varying skin types and conditions.

Using a variable-level vacuum and an assortment of treatment tips that are determined and hand held by your aesthetic provider, the DermaSweep wand gently lifts the skin against the appropriate treatment tip, removing the top most layer of skin. Your skin is left smoother while the vacuum action of the wand stimulates blood flow and cleans pores. Various personalized serums are available for use in conjunction with your DermaSweep session- ask your aesthetic provider which treatment is right for you!

What types of serums and peels are offered with DERMASWEEP hydrodermabrasion? How do I choose?

Your skin care provider will make recommendations based on your skin type, concerns, and goals of treatment. While many places will charge you based on the type of dermalinfusion you choose, we want you to receive the best treatment for your skin care needs, without concern for cost. Therefore, we charge the same for all of the following dermalinfusions, with cost dependednt on whether you choose the express treatment (30 minutes, no frills) or the deluxe (60 minutes with steam and hand massage).

Epifusions:
1. Vitamin C (brightening and moisturizing)
2. Hyaluronic Acid (hydration, antioxidant, safe in pregnancy)
3. Hyperpigmentation (best for brightening, rosacea, and acneic skin)
4. ExFo (for oily, acneic, sebaceous)
5. Calming (for sensitive or reactive skin).

Premiumfusions:
1. NuCell (anti-aging with growth factors)
2. ProBio balancing and brightening)
3. Clarify (great for acne-prone skin)
4. Illumine (best for hyperpigmentation
5. Red Carpet Ready (most-popular, pre-event).

Peelfusions:
1. Refresh: Superficial with 15% TCA and blend of Glycolic, Salicylic, and Hyaluronic acids (pH 2.9)
Best for: Dry/dehydrated skin, fragile/sensitive/reactive skin, oily or sebaceous skin
2. Reluminate: Superficial to light peel with 15% TCA and blend of Kojic, Azelaic, and Lactic acids (pH 2.2)
Best for: Hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and acneic skin.
3. Revive: Light to medium peel with 15% TCA (pH 0.9)
Best for: Hyperpigmentation, fine lines/wrinkles, mild acne scarring, thicker skin, resilient or oily/sebaceous skin

What exactly does "vaginal rejuvenation" mean?

As women age , and especially after menopause, the resultant drop in estrogen can lead to thinning and drying of vaginal tissue. This may lead to changes in vaginal appearance as well as uncomfortable/painful intercourse due to lack of natural lubrication of the vagina. Additionally, overstretch of vaginal tissue during childbirth may result in loss of vaginal tone as well as changes in the appearance of labial skin.

The term "vaginal rejuvenation" refers to the remodeling of vaginal skin to restore more youthful hydration and appearance. Vaginal rejuvenation can be accomplished through surgery (labioplasty, for example), intravaginal laser therapy, or through use of the CO2LIFT-V system.

Available at ALLYN aesthetics & wellness, CO2LIFT-V is a non-invasive treatment clients can do in the comfort and privacy of their own home. Packaged in sets of 3 or 5 vaginal insert applicators, CO2LIFT-V hydrates and remodels vaginal tissue which can improve physical appearance, lubrication, and sensation of the vagina. 

I heard that my face may be red or bruised for a few days after my treatment- is this true?

While all of the procedures we perform at ALLYN aesthetics & wellness are generally considered safe and non-invasive, there may be some localized redness, swelling, and bruising to the face after microneedling, microdermabrasion, botox, fillers, and use of the Plasma Pen.

You can minimize the risk of bleeding and bruising by limiting your use of NSAIDs (aspirin, ibuprofen, naprosyn) and alcohol in the days leading up to your procedure. Using ice and or arnica gel after your procedure can also help minimize swelling and bruising. Your aesthetic clinician will discuss this with you as part of the education and consent process prior to treatment. 

How far ahead of my big event should I book my appointments?

Book as soon as you know you want to come in and, if you are in a position to do so, book your return appointment at the end of each session. Depending on the services and results you seek, if you are planning for a big event you should plan to book at least 3 months ahead, and allowing for 2 weeks of skin rest and recovery before the big day. The exception to this rule is DermaSweep, which may be safely performed as late as the day of your event. 

Can I save my monthly membership benefits to use the following month?

Monthly benefits do not accrue and cannot be carried over to subsequent months. 

What is Glutathione?

Glutathione is a combination of three amino acids: cysteine, glutamic acid, and glucine, and has been referred to as the “mother of all antioxidants”. Antioxidants repair and prevent the damage and inflammation that is caused by toxins. When we our bodies are exposed to toxins, glutathione is used up faster than it can be produced. This is where glutathione supplementation can be helpful.

The most effective way to enhance glutathione levels is to receive regular glutathione injections. Taking glutathione by mouth is less effective because the digestion process severely decreases its beneficial properties.

Because glutathione injections work by eliminating free radicals and toxins that can lead to hyperpigmentation, age spots, wrinkles, and acne, receiving regular glutathione injections may reduce minor skin imperfections and improve skin tone, resulting in an overall lighter and brighter complexion.

Recommended dosing frequency is 3 times per week with maximum benefit typically seen after at least 3 weeks of treatment. Efficacy of the injections depends on dosing and frequency, duration of treatment, your overall health, and your body’s metabolism.

What is Ultherapy?

Ultherapy is the only non-invasive treatment cleared by the FDA for lifting the skin on the neck, chin, and brow, and improving lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to lift and tighten loose skin over time, without any downtime.

How is Ultherapy different from other cosmetic procedures?

Ultherapy is a non-invasive aesthetic procedure that uses focused ultrasound to stimulate the formation of new collagen deep below the skin’s surface. The production of new collagen takes time, so results can become more apparent over 2 to 3 months, even up to 6 months. The procedure takes about 30 to 90 minutes, depending on the area treated, and there is no downtime afterward. It also is the only procedure to use ultrasound imaging, which allows practitioners to actually see the layers of tissue targeted during the treatment and ensure the energy is deposited precisely where it will be most beneficial.

What does Ultherapy feel like? Is it painful?

As the ultrasound energy is delivered, you may feel tiny amounts of energy being deposited to precise depths, stimulating the collagen-building process. Comfort levels vary from person to person, but the sensation only lasts while the ultrasound energy is being delivered.

Most patients report that the procedure is quite tolerable. If and when any discomfort does occur, it happens while the ultrasound energy is being delivered. We take measures to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and patients tell us they leave comfortable and excited about the benefits to come.

How long do Ultherapy results last?

Since the procedure stimulates a person’s own collagen production, how long the results last depends on the individual. The treatment produces new collagen on the inside, but the individual’s natural aging process will dictate how long that translates into visible results on the outside. Future touch-up treatments can help provide more control over the aging process, which varies by individual.

Are there any side effects to Ultherapy?

There may be slight redness that typically resolves within a few hours following the treatment. Some patients may have slight swelling, tingling, or tenderness to the touch, but these are mild and temporary in nature. A full list of potential side effects are listed in the Ultherapy Instructions For Use (IFU).

Is Ultherapy safe?

Ultherapy is a proven treatment with a well-established safety profile. It is currently marketed worldwide in more than 75 countries, with over 1.5 million treatments performed globally to date. In addition, ultrasound energy has a proven track record, with use in the field of medicine for more than 50 years.

How many Ultherapy treatments will I need?

The majority of patients only need one treatment; however, some may benefit from more than one  treatment depending on how much skin laxity they have and their body’s own biological response to the ultrasound and the collagen building process. Follow-up Ultherapy treatments each year may help maintain results.

What is collagen and how does Ultherapy help?

Collagen is a natural protein that gives skin its youthfulness by keeping it firm and toned. As we age, collagen breaks down, and the result is a loss of skin strength and elasticity. Ultherapy uses microfocused ultrasound to generate a thermal effect under the skin. The thermal effect essentially jump-starts a process that produces fresh, new collagen.

Who is a good candidate for Ultherapy?

A good candidate for Ultherapy is someone with skin that has some degree of laxity, to the point of looking, and often feeling, less firm. Loose skin under the neck and under the chin, or lines and wrinkles on the upper chest are signals a patient might be a candidate.

Typically, those in their 30s and older who have mild to moderate skin laxity are candidates. While Ultherapy is not a replacement for a surgical facelift, there are many people who want some facial lifting but are not ready for surgery, whether mentally, physically, or financially. There also are younger adults who want to “stay ahead of the game,” as well as patients wanting an aesthetic maintenance option.

How is Ultherapy different from laser?

Ultherapy uses sound energy — tried-and-true ultrasound — which has unique properties that allow it to bypass the surface of the skin to treat depths not matched by any other non-invasive cosmetic device. Ultherapy ultrasound stimulates collagen production in the skin’s foundation, resulting in a clinically significant lift of tissue over two to three months. Some lasers rely on light energy, which cannot reach deeper skin layers. Typically, laser treatments also only treat superficial skin and are not FDA-cleared to lift skin.

That information includes the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, operating system, browser type and the locations of the websites the user views right before arriving at, while navigating and immediately after leaving the Website. Although such information is not Personally-Identifying Information, it may be possible for Company to determine from an IP address a user’s Internet service provider and the geographic location of the visitor’s point of connectivity as well as other statistical usage data. Company analyzes Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website to help Company better understand how the Website is being used. By identifying patterns and trends in usage, Company is able to better design the Website to improve users’ experiences, both in terms of content and ease of use. From time to time, Company may also release the Non-Personally-Identifying Information gathered from Website users in the aggregate, such as by publishing a report on trends in the usage of the Website.

Web Cookies 

A “Web Cookie” is a string of information which assigns you a unique identification that a website stores on a user’s computer, and that the user’s browser provides to the website each time the user submits a query to the website. We use cookies on the Website to keep track of services you have used, to record registration information regarding your login name and password, to record your user preferences, to keep you logged into the Website and to facilitate purchase procedures. Company also uses Web Cookies to track the pages that users visit during each Website session, both to help Company improve users’ experiences and to help Company understand how the Website is being used. As with other NonPersonally-Identifying Information gathered from users of the Website, Company analyzes and discloses in aggregated form information gathered using Web Cookies, so as to help Company, its partners and others better understand how the Website is being used.

COMPANY USERS WHO DO NOT WISH TO HAVE WEB COOKIES PLACED ON THEIR COMPUTERS SHOULD SET THEIR BROWSERS TO REFUSE WEB COOKIES BEFORE ACCESSING THE WEBSITE, WITH THE UNDERSTANDING THAT CERTAIN FEATURES OF THE WEBSITE MAY NOT FUNCTION PROPERLY WITHOUT THE AID OF WEB COOKIES. WEBSITE USERS WHO REFUSE WEB COOKIES ASSUME ALL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY RESULTING LOSS OF FUNCTIONALITY. 

Web Beacons 

A “Web Beacon” is an object that is embedded in a web page or email that is usually invisible to the user and allows website operators to check whether a user has viewed a particular web page or an email. Company may use Web Beacons on the Website and in emails to count users who have visited particular pages, viewed emails and to deliver co-branded services. Web Beacons are not used to access users’ Personally-Identifying Information. They are a technique Company may use to compile aggregated statistics about Website usage. Web Beacons collect only a limited set of information, including a Web Cookie number, time and date of a page or email view and a description of the page or email on which the Web Beacon resides. You may not decline Web Beacons. However, they can be rendered ineffective by declining all Web Cookies or modifying your browser setting to notify you each time a Web Cookie is tendered, permitting you to accept or decline Web Cookies on an individual basis.

Analytics 

We may partner with selected third parties to allow tracking technology on the Website, which will enable them to collect data about how you interact with the Website and our services over time. This information may be used to, among other things, analyze and track data, determine the popularity of certain content and better understand online activity.

Aggregated and Non-Personally-Identifying Information 

We may share aggregated and Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect under any of the above circumstances. We may also share it with third parties and our affiliate companies to develop and deliver targeted advertising on the Website and on websites of third parties. We may combine Non-Personally Identifying Information we collect with additional Non-Personally Identifying Information collected from other sources. We also may share aggregated information with third parties, including advisors, advertisers and investors, for the purpose of conducting general business analysis. For example, we may tell our advertisers the number of visitors to the Website and the most popular features or services accessed. This information does not contain any Personally-Identifying Information and may be used to develop website content and services that we hope you and other users will find of interest and to target content and advertising.

Mobile Device Additional Terms 


Mobile Device

If you use a mobile device to access the Website or download any of our applications, we may collect device information (such as your mobile device ID, model and manufacturer), operating system, version information and IP address.

Geo-Location Information
Unless we have received your prior consent, we do not access or track any location-based information from your mobile device at any time while downloading or using our mobile application or our services, except that it may be possible for Company to determine from an IP address the geographic location of your point of connectivity, in which case we may gather and use such general location data.

Push Notifications

We send you push notifications if you choose to receive them, letting you know when someone has sent you a message or for other service-related matters. If you wish to opt-out from receiving these types of communications, you may turn them off in your device’s settings.

Mobile Analytics

We use mobile analytics software to allow us to better understand the functionality of our mobile software on your phone. This software may record information, such as how often you use the application, the events that occur within the application, aggregated usage, performance data and where the application was downloaded from. We do not link the information we store within the analytics software to any Personally-Identifying Information you submit within the mobile application.

SOCIAL MEDIA 

We may use hyperlinks on the Website which will redirect you to a social network if you click on the respective link. However, when you click on a social plug-in, such as Facebook’s “Like” button, Twitter’s “tweet” button or the Google+, that particular social network’s plugin will be activated and your browser will directly connect to that provider’s servers. If you do not use these buttons, none of your data will be sent to the respective social network’s plugin provider. So for example, when you click on the Facebook’s “Like” button on the Website, Facebook will receive your IP address, the browser version and screen resolution, and the operating system of the device you have used to access the Website. Settings regarding privacy protection can be found on the websites of these social networks and are not within our control.

COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION


Website Registration 

As defined above, Personally-Identifying Information is information that can be directly associated with a specific person. Company may collect a range of Personally-Identifying Information from and about Website users. Much of the Personally-Identifying Information collected by Company about users is information provided by users themselves when

  1. registering for our service,
  2. logging in with social network credentials,
  3.  participating in polls, contests, surveys or other features of our service, or responding to offers or advertisements, 
  4. communicating with us,

We also may request information about your interests and activities, your gender, age, date of birth, username, hometown and other demographic or relevant information as determined by Company from time to time. Users of the Website are under no obligation to provide Company with Personally-Identifying Information of any kind, with the caveat that a user’s refusal to do so may prevent the user from using certain Website features. 

BY REGISTERING WITH OR USING THE WEBSITE, YOU CONSENT TO THE USE AND DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION AS DESCRIBED IN THIS “COLLECTION, USE AND DISCLOSURE OF PERSONALLY-IDENTIFYING INFORMATION” SECTION. 

Company Communications 

We may occasionally use your name and email address to send you notifications regarding new services offered by the Website that we think you may find valuable. We may also send you service-related announcements from time to time through the general operation of the service. Generally, you may opt out of such emails at the time of registration or through your account settings, though we reserve the right to send you notices about your account, such as service announcements and administrative messages, even if you opt out of all voluntary email notifications.

Company Disclosures 


Company will disclose Personally-Identifying Information under the following circumstances:

By Law or to Protect Rights

When we believe disclosure is appropriate, we may disclose Personally-Identifying Information in connection with efforts to investigate, prevent or take other action regarding illegal activity, suspected fraud or other wrongdoing; to protect and defend the rights, property or safety of Company, our users, our employees or others; to comply with applicable law or cooperate with law enforcement; to enforce our Terms of Use or other agreements or policies, in response to a subpoena or similar investigative demand, a court order or a request for cooperation from a law enforcement or other government agency; to establish or exercise our legal rights; to defend against legal claims; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we may raise or waive any legal objection or right available to us.

These services may include fulfilling orders, providing customer service and marketing assistance, performing business and sales analysis, supporting the Website’s functionality and supporting contests, sweepstakes, surveys and other features offered through the Website. We may also share your name, contact information and credit card information with our authorized service providers who process credit card payments. These service providers may have access to personal information needed to perform their functions but are not permitted to share or use such information for any other purpose.

Business Transfers; Bankruptcy

Company reserves the right to transfer all PersonallyIdentifying Information in its possession to a successor organization in the event of a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy or other sale of all or a portion of Company’s assets. Other than to the extent ordered by a bankruptcy or other court, the use and disclosure of all transferred Personally-Identifying Information will be subject to this Privacy Policy, or to a new privacy policy if you are given notice of that new privacy policy and are given an opportunity to affirmatively optout of it. Personally-Identifying Information submitted or collected after a transfer, however, may be subject to a new privacy policy adopted by the successor organization.

Changing personally-identifying information; Account Termination

You may at any time review or change your Personally-Identifying Information by going to your account settings (if applicable) or contacting us using the contact information below.

Such information will be deactivated or deleted as soon as practicable based on your account activity and accordance with our deactivation policy and applicable law.

We will retain in our files some Personally-Identifying Information to prevent fraud, to troubleshoot problems, to assist with any investigations, to enforce our Terms of Use and to comply with legal requirements as is permitted by law. Therefore, you should not expect that all your Personally-Identifying Information will be completely removed from our databases in response to your requests. Additionally, we keep a history of changed information to investigate suspected fraud with your account.

We may use financial information or payment method to process payment for any purchases made on the Website, enroll you in the discount, rebate, and other programs in which you elect to participate, to protect against or identify possible fraudulent transactions and otherwise as needed to manage our business.

COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION BY THIRD PARTIES GENERALLY

Company contractually prohibits its contractors, affiliates, vendors and suppliers from disclosing Personally-Identifying Information received from Company, other than in accordance with this Privacy Policy. However, third parties are under no obligation to comply with this Privacy Policy with respect to Personally-Identifying Information that users provide directly to those third parties, or that those third parties collect for themselves. These third parties include advertisers, providers of games, utilities, widgets and a variety of other third-party applications accessible through the Website. Company neither owns nor controls the third-party websites and applications accessible through the Website. Thus, this Privacy Policy does not apply to information provided to or gathered by the third parties that operate them. Before visiting a third party, or using a third-party application, whether by means of a link on the Website, directly through the Website or otherwise, and before providing any Personally-Identifying Information to any such third party, users should inform themselves of the privacy policies and practices (if any) of the third party responsible for that website or application, and should take those steps necessary to, in those users’ discretion, protect their privacy.

SECURITY


We take the security of your Personally-Identifying Information seriously and use reasonable electronic, personnel and physical measures to protect it from loss, theft, alteration or misuse. However, please be advised that even the best security measures cannot fully eliminate all risks. We cannot guarantee that only authorized persons will view your information. We are not responsible for third-party circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures. We are dedicated to protect all information on the Website as is necessary. However, you are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your Personally-Identifying Information by keeping your password confidential. You should change your password immediately if you believe someone has gained unauthorized access to it or your account. If you lose control of your account, you should notify us immediately.

PRIVACY POLICY CHANGES

Company may, in its sole discretion, change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Any and all changes to Company’s Privacy Policy will be reflected on this page and the date new versions are posted will be stated at the top of this Privacy Policy. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you and your account. Users should regularly check this page for any changes to this Privacy Policy. Company will always post new versions of the Privacy Policy on the Website. However, Company may, as determined in its discretion, decide to notify users of changes made to this Privacy Policy via email or otherwise. Accordingly, it is important that users always maintain and update their contact information.

CHILDREN

The Children's Online Privacy Protection Act ("COPPA") protects the online privacy of children under 13 years of age. We do not knowingly collect or maintain Personally-Identifying Information from anyone under the age of 13, unless or except as permitted by law. Any person who provides PersonallyIdentifying Information through the Website represents to us that he or she is 13 years of age or older. If we learn that Personally-Identifying Information has been collected from a user under 13 years of age on or through the Website, then we will take the appropriate steps to cause this information to be deleted. If you are the parent or legal guardian of a child under 13 who has become a member of the Website or has otherwise transferred Personally-Identifying Information to the Website, please contact Company using our contact information below to have that child's account terminated and information deleted.

CALIFORNIA PRIVACY RIGHTS

California Civil Code Section 1798.83, also known as the "Shine The Light" law, permits our users who are California residents to request and obtain from us, once a year and free of charge, information about the Personally-Identifying Information (if any) we disclosed to third parties for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If applicable, this information would include a list of the categories of the Personally-Identifying Information that was shared and the names and addresses of all third parties with which we shared Personally-Identifying Information in the immediately preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and would like to make such a request, please submit your request in writing to our privacy officer as listed below.

DO-NOT-TRACK POLICY

Most web browsers and some mobile operating systems include a Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) feature or setting you can activate to signal your privacy preference not to have data about your online browsing activities monitored and collected. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, the Website currently does not respond to DNT browser signals or mechanisms.
