Allure uses information collected from customers and potential customers to provide products or services, to respond to requests for information regarding Allure’s products and services, for input on preferred features for future developments, mailing contacts for Allure publications and newsletters, special events marketing and other marketing research activities, and for additional purposes that may be identified at or before the time that the information is collected.

Requirements for consent to collection, use, or disclosure of personal information vary depending on circumstances and on the type of personal information that is intended to be collected, used, or disclosed. In determining whether consent is required and, if so, which form of consent is appropriate, Allure will consider both the sensitivity of the personal information at issue and the purposes for which Allure will use the information. Consent may be express, implied (including through use of “opt-out” consent where appropriate) or deemed. For example, if an individual provides his/her mailing address and requests information regarding a particular product, consent to use the address to mail product information to the individual is implied.
On giving reasonable written notice to Allure, an individual may withdraw consent to the collection, use or disclosure of his or her personal information. Upon receipt of this withdrawal, Allure will notify the individual of the likely consequences of withdrawing his or her consent. Except where otherwise required or permitted by law, Allure will then stop collecting, using or disclosing the individual’s personal information.
