We strive to provide you with a full range of personalised skin care and cosmetic recommendations designed to meet your needs. In order to provide you with this level of service, we may use your personal information in the manner described below:
a) Communications to Serve You
If you have elected to provide us with your contact information, e.g., by registering at the skincounter.co.uk site or by placing an order, we may email you with updates regarding our site or your order. For example; all registered users will receive a welcome email to confirm their registration to our site and confirmation emails will be sent to all registered users on completion of an online order and to announce to users that their order has been shipped. We may also contact you to respond to any customer care queries (e.g. lost orders, returns, questions about product usage).

In addition to the essential service related announcements that we will send you as detailed in Section 2(a) above, if you opt-in during the skincounter.co.uk site registration process or at other times when you may submit personally identifiable information, the information you provide may be used to create and deliver to you our regular mailing list, which is sent out multiple times a week, and which may consist of promotion alerts, special discounts, new product launches, coming soon updates, skin care advice, product recommendations and other relevant information (“Opt-In Communications”).
