We are committed to protecting the privacy and security of the users of our site. This privacy policy will advise you about how we protect your personal information. We may need to change this policy from time to time as technology changes or our content is updated. We will post these changes here for your reference at any time. If you have any questions or concerns about our privacy policy, please send an email to: editor@nomakeuprequired.com


This privacy policy applies to your use of the sites and services owned by No Makeup Required, LLC referred to here as NMR and collectively as “we,” “us,” or “our,” including nomakeuprequired.com and any other site we own and operate or may own or operate in the future. Unless we say otherwise, any references to “the Site” in this privacy policy include all such sites. This privacy policy does not apply to your use of unaffiliated sites to the Site may link. This policy covers only information collected on the Site and does not cover any information collected offline by us.


We may request personal information from you (such as your name, email, address, and/or any other identifier that permits the physical or online contacting of you) in commection with your use of, or participation in, surveys, forums, content submissions, inquiries, questions, requests for suggestions or additional information from us (including via email to us), and in connection with other activities, services or resources we make available on our Site. In all of these cases, we will collect personal identification information from you only if you voluntarily submit such information to us. Except as otherwise stated in this policy, we will never intentionally disclose any personal information about you as an individual user to any third party without having received your permission.

If you do provide us with any personal information for any of these activities, we may use it to conduct the activity. We may also use cookie technology and Web beacons to improve your experience of these activities, including to customize the content and advertisements that you see. We have the following exceptions to our privacy policy: We will release specific information about you or your history with any valid legal inquiry or process such as a search warrant, subpoena, statute or court order. We will also release specific information in special cases, such as if there is an attempted breach of the security of the Site, or a physical or property threat to you or others. We may also transfer user information, including personally identifiable information, in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, the sale of related assets or corporate division or other fundemental corporate change.


We collect non-personal identification information through the use of:
“Cookie” technology: A “cookie” is an element of data that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your system. “IP Address Tracking”: An IP address is a number that is assigned to your computer when you are on the internet. When you request pages from the Site, our servers log your IP address.

“Web beacons”: A web beacon, or “clear gif”, is a small graphic image on a webpage or web-based document that a web site can use to determine information about a user.

Non-personal information might include the browser you use, the type of computer, technical information about your means of connection to the Site – such as the operating system and the Internet service provider utilized, and other similar information. Our systems may also automatically gather information about the areas you visit and about the links you may select from within the Site to other areas of the World Wide Web or elsewhere online.

We use such information to administer the Site, better manage advertising on the Site, and, in the aggregate, to understand how our users as a group use the services and resources provided on our Site. This way we know which areas of our Site are favorites of our users, which areas need improvement, and what technologies are being used so that we may continually improve our Site. We may share this aggregate statistical information with our partners, suppliers and other third parties, but we will not share any individual names, personal navigational or other personal information. For example, we may use a third-party advertising company to serve ads when you visit our Site. We may share demographic and preference information with this company to allow them to display appropriate advertisements with you.


As part of our content, our Site may create links allowing our users to access third party sites. While we try to only link to sites that share the same values and standards as No Makeup Required, we can not guarantee the quality or content of the third party sites, or that they will have the same privacy policies as No Makeup Required. A link to or from NMR does not mean that we endorse the third party sites, their content, products or services. We encourage you to review all third-party websites’ privacy policies in order to determine how they treat user information.

In addition, our site contains advertisements with links to the sites and services of our partners, suppliers, advertisers, sponsors and other third parties. We do not control the contents or links that appear in the advertisements or third-party sites, or the content that appears on them. In addition, these sites or services, including their contents and links, may be constantly changing. These sites and services have their own privacy policies and customer service policies, or no policy (or policies) at all. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any third party sites or services before providing any of them with your personal information.


As a website geared towards adults that occasionally deals with personal issues, we do not encourage the use of our website by children under 18.


Any information that we gather is stored on restricted database servers, and only authorized personnel are able to access this information. We use industry-standard tools such as firewalls to ensure your information stays safe and confidential.


If you would like to review any personal information we have retained about you in our database, please send us an email request for this information to editor@nomakeuprequired.com. Please specify which information you wish to review when you submit your request to help us address your request. Once you have reviewed this information, at your request we will correct personal information about you that you state is incorrect. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases and servers, but we will always make reasonable efforts to do so upon your request.


If we ever send you information by email concerning new products or services that you did not expressly request, we will provide you with an email address by which you may request no further notices. If we have advertising partners that gather demographic information whenever you visit our site, you will also have the opportunity to opt out of providing such information.


The Site is operated in the United States. If you are located in the European Union or elsewhere outside the United States, please be aware that any information you provide us will be transferred to the United States. By using our Site, participating in any of our services and/or providing us with your information, you consent to this transfer.


By using the Site, you signify your acceptance of our Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this policy, please do not use our Site. Your continued use of the Site following the posting of changes to these terms will mean that you accept these changes.
