Perfecthairhealth.com is a website dedicated to providing visitors with information about and services for those with hair loss. Like most websites, perfecthairhealth.com collects data from its visitors. For example, Google Analytics allows us to see which pages visitors like to read, and these insights help guide future content creation. This is all to better serve our readers.
Perfecthairhealth.com is the controller of all the personal data collected and used on this site. It is our responsibility to decide how and why the data of our visitors is used, and to ensure that all data are handled legally and safely.
Our data protection officer can be contacted at rob[at]perfecthairhealth.com. If you have any enquiries, please use the email subject, "Data Protection Enquiry".
Data is collected from various pages of perfecthairhealth.com. For instance, when a visitor signs up for our emails (i.e., a free case study, our newsletter, etc.), they must provide a valid email address. Our email service provider then collects that information, sends the visitor an email to confirm their email address, and then emails them content pertinent to their opt-in form. In these situations, the data we collect is what the visitor provides to us: their email (and sometimes their first name).
If a visitor purchases / registers for one of our digital products or memberships, we may store additional data that the visitor provides during the registration process. This may include the visitor's registered username, password, email address, billing / shipping address, IP address, and timestamp of purchase / registration.
Visitors' data are used to service purchases and registrations. We may also refer to individual data if a visitor contacts us with queries related to their data (provided they can prove their identity). At times, we may choose to aggregate data from visitors to profile customer demographics. Additionally, when a visitor signs up for my emails, we'll use the data they provided to email them content.
We process (collect, store, and use) any information provided by visitors of perfecthairhealth.com in compliance with the E.U.’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Legally, we have to retain some personal data for taxation and auditing purposes. For instance, we can delete your name and email from our email service provider, but we cannot delete transaction histories -- as that might interfere with our ability to properly report income.
Our goal is to keep your information accurate and current, but for no longer than necessary. We keep visitor and customer data for at least one month to uphold our refund policies. But we also may hold that data for longer for accounting purposes.
Any content a visitor sends to us in an email, posts publicly in article comments, or posts privately in our membership community (i.e., in the discussion forums) is owned by perfecthairhealth.com. By contributing to our content in this manner, you grant perfecthairhealth.com permission to use that content for marketing purposes (for instance, site testimonials). All personal information will be de-identified, unless you give us permission to share any identifiable information.
In some circumstances, your data may be shared with third parties. This is mainly because we need the help of third-party resources to fulfill business-related processes.
For instance, if we manually sent out email broadcasts to each subscriber, it would take days to complete a single broadcast. Instead, we use a third-party email service provider to automate broadcast emailing for us. The same is true for payment processing. If we manually collected orders from customers, generated individual receipts, issued purchase links, and delivered each digital product on a person-by-person basis, it would delay customers from instantly accessing our products, and detract us from what we love doing: creating new content for readers. Resultantly, we rely on a secure third-party payment processor to handle payments and product deliveries for me. We also use third-party services and softwares to track and manage data from visitors – like Facebook or Quora pixels. Additionally, we use third-party forum softwares to run our community.
