- (collectively, the “Sites”).
The laws of the United States shall apply to our collection of information at our Physical Locations in the U.S. and through the Sites, and to CHANEL’s use of such information. If you are accessing Sites intended for United States consumers from outside the United States, please be aware that the laws of the United States and other countries to which we may transfer your information may not provide a level of protection equivalent to the laws in your home country.
2. Collection and Use of Information
a. Personal Information You Provide Us
We collect identifying information (“Personal Information”) about users of the Sites and individuals who visit our Physical Locations when you voluntarily provide it in the course of browsing, visit or shopping on the Sites, including to make purchases from the Sites; visit, shop or purchase items in the Physical Locations; voluntarily register or otherwise sign up for information on the Sites or at a Physical Location; or communicate with us via the Sites or at a Physical Location. Users of the Sites and individuals who visit our Physical Locations may provide Personal Information for various reasons, including but not limited to, for the purposes of obtaining newsletters, product information, event information, and services; to answer surveys, enter contests, and receive notice of other promotional opportunities; and to develop “wishlists” or to make purchases.
The types of identifying Personal Information that we may collect from users of the Sites and Physical Location visitors include name, address, phone number, email address, purchase information and purchase method, and associated information such as credit or debit card information used to facilitate the sale of CHANEL products. We use the information that you provide for the following purposes: to respond to your requests, to process your purchases and related transactions, to create a personal customer profile in order to let you know of products or events that may be of interest to you, to streamline future purchases, and for customer service purposes, such as following up with customers who have items in their shopping carts or to inquire about their use of the Sites. We may combine information we collect on the Sites and through Physical Locations with other information we otherwise collect online or offline about users to better tailor marketing or website content, including to measure the effectiveness of our advertising, or for other purposes, such as internal research.
For information on how to opt-out of allowing us to use your Personal Information for marketing purposes, see section 6 below.
b. Automatically Collected Information
We automatically collect certain aggregate information and other information when you visit the Sites. When in aggregated form, this information does not relate to a single identifiable visitor. It tells us such things as how many users visited the Sites and the pages accessed. Collecting this information helps us tailor our Sites to our visitors.
Also, we may collect certain information at the individual level, which may be Personal Information under applicable state laws, although it may not always allow us to identify who you are. For example, when you visit the Sites to browse, read, or download information, we automatically collect device and related information that your browser sends to every website you visit, such as your IP address, general location, browser type and language, access times, and referring website addresses. Certain of our Sites may collect precise geolocation where location services are enabled in your device settings. For registered users that are logged in, we may associate automatically collected information with the identifying information described in section 2.a above. For non-registered users, we generally do not link this device and related information to anything that will allow us to identify users, unless to enforce compliance with our rules or terms of service; to protect our service, Sites, users or others; or for certain online advertising activities relating to our users, including to measure the effectiveness of our advertising.
In addition, we also may collect other information, including through “cookies,” “device matching,” “device identifiers,” and/or “web beacons,” as explained below.
Cookies: We, our service providers, and third parties such as online network advertisers may collect information using cookies, pixels, and similar technologies from the Sites. Cookies are pieces of information that any website may transfer to your browser that are then stored on your device. Cookies are returned to the website that deposited them when a visitor returns to that site. Cookies tell us, for example, whether a user is a first time visitor or has visited the Sites before and what areas of the Sites are of greatest interest to the user. Cookies may enhance your online experience by allowing us to save your preferences for your next visit. Our cookies may also measure the general activity on the Sites, which allows us to determine which areas and features are most popular. This information allows us to make improvements to our Sites.
We have also enabled certain advertising features of Google Analytics (e.g. Remarketing, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting). These services enable the delivery of tailored advertising to you on the Sites and on third party websites and applications. To do so, we, along with third-party vendors such as Google, use first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookies) and third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) or other third-party identifiers together to compile data regarding user interactions with ad impressions and other ad service functions as they relate to our Sites. Users can set preferences for how Google advertises to you using the Google Ad Settings page. Alternatively, you can opt out by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative Opt Out page or by using the Google Analytics Opt Out Browser add on.
Most web browsers are set up to accept cookies. You can, however, set your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being set. If you choose to decline cookies, some of the functionality of the Sites may be impaired.
Device Identifiers: We also may automatically collect an IP address or other unique identifier information (“Device Identifier”) for the computer, mobile device, or other device (collectively, “Device”) you use to access the Sites. A Device Identifier is a number that is automatically assigned to your Device when you access a website or its servers, and our computers identify your Device by its Device Identifier. We may use a Device Identifier to, among other things, administer the Sites, help diagnose problems with our servers, analyze trends, track users' web page movements, help identify you and your shopping cart, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use, and we may share this information with third parties for the foregoing purposes.
Device Matching: Data collected from one Device when you visit the Sites or other third party websites or applications may be linked to data collected from another Device for the purpose of establishing profiles, analytics, and delivering ads and/or other content or services to you, across such Devices, or it may be transferred to third parties such as online network advertisers for those purposes. For example, we may use the data we receive to determine the probability that a desktop computer and a mobile device belong to the same user and may share this device matching information with third parties to enable them to provide advertising, analytics or other services.
Web Beacons: Web beacons, also known as “clear gifs,” “one-pixel gifs,” “web bugs,” “Internet tags,” or “pixel tags,” are small graphic images on a website or in an email that allow us and third parties to monitor the activity on the Sites or to make cookies more effective. Web beacons allow us, our service providers, and other third parties to gauge and enhance the effectiveness of our marketing on our Sites or on third party websites or other channels by transmitting information about whether you follow links in our emails or Sites, or links in third party websites, and by gathering information about the websites you visit before and after visiting our Sites. We use log files to store the data that is collected through Web beacons.
c. Information from Third Parties
We may obtain the types of information described above from third parties to enhance the profiles we may maintain about you.
3. Sharing of Information
Except as addressed in this section 3, we will neither disclose nor sell any information about you to a party unaffiliated with us unless (i) required to do so by law or legal process; (ii) required to do so by law enforcement authorities or other government officials; (iii) we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or injury to, or interference with, our rights or property or the rights or property of our users or others or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity; (iv) we reasonably believe that you have used information from the Sites in order to commit unlawful acts or acts that may endanger the health and/or safety of the public; and/or (v) we believe the law in good faith requires such disclosure.
We use third party service providers to administer and/or operate certain functions or services on our behalf, the proper performance of which may require a transfer of your information. The functions or services include, for example, administering the Sites, delivery of products requested or ordered by you, and delivery of marketing or other communications to you about our products, services, or special events. Any such transfer shall be subject to confidentiality and security obligations and for the sole purpose of the performance of those functions or services.
We may also share your Personal Information with other third parties for joint marketing and promotions of products, services, or events that may be of interest to you. Any transfers of Personal Information shall be subject to confidentiality and security obligations and for the sole purpose of the performance of those obligations.
In addition, we also may share information with companies such as online network advertisers or similar entities that may deliver targeted ads to you and which also may automatically collect or receive information about your online activities over time and across different websites following your use of the Sites, in order to facilitate the delivery of advertising and communications tailored to your interests on the Sites or on third party websites or applications (for example, if you register with us or view a page on our Sites about a CHANEL product, you may receive an online advertisement for that or a related product on other third party websites on the Internet that you visit, or online network advertisers may use certain information they collect about you to assist with their delivery of advertisements for others). We also may place tailored ads on social media websites and services, which may entail our sharing of certain account-related information.
For information on how to opt-out of allowing us to use your Personal Information for marketing, see section 6 below. You should be aware, however, that even if you opt-out of allowing us to use your information for marketing campaigns, we may still share certain information with third parties to comply with legal obligations or for other operational purposes. For example, if you have opted out of marketing emails from us, we may have to provide your email address to a third party we jointly market with to comply with your opt-out request.
4. Unsolicited Materials
Protecting your information is of primary concern to us. We store the information that we collect on secure servers and otherwise take reasonable precautions to protect your Personal Information. However, we cannot warrant and do not represent that our level of security meets or exceeds any specific standards. No Internet transmission is 100% secure or error-free, nor is stored data free from vulnerabilities. We neither guarantee the security of our websites, databases, or services, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to us over the Internet. We are not responsible for the actions of third parties.
6. Updating Your Personal Information and Opting Out of Marketing Communications

Even if you opt-out of marketing communications, we may still contact you to send you important information regarding the operation or administration of your personal profile or other non-marketing information.

7. Corporate Change of Control
Personal Information collected over the Sites or through the Physical Locations may be transferred as part of any merger, acquisition, or sale of company assets, as well as in the unlikely event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which Personal Information would be transferred to another entity.
