American Cosmetic Society, together with its directors, employees, agents, suppliers, partners, and content providers (individually and collectively, “American Cosmetic Society”, "we," "us," “our”) is committed to protecting your personal and financial information. 

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) answers some questions about your nonpublic personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information we collect in connection with your use of, including any related subdomain (the “Site”), the American Cosmetic Society services, applications and software provided through or in connection with the service, including through a mobile device (the "Service"), how the information will be used, what we do with it, how we protect it, and your correction or deletion of that information. As of the date listed above, we have made some changes to this Policy that may affect what information we collect about you from either you or from third parties, and with whom that information may be shared. Specifically, certain information we collect about you from third parties concerning your accredited investor status may be shared with certain other third parties in accordance with this Policy.

This Policy together with the Terms of Service (the “Terms”) (collectively, the “Agreement”) constitutes a contract between you and American Cosmetic Society and governs your use of the Site and/or the Service and set forth the terms and conditions between you and American Cosmetic Society when you access or use the Site or in connection with the Service, including participation or browsing. If you breach any of the terms of the Agreement, your right to use the Site or right to use the Service will terminate immediately.

The Agreement does not apply to the practices of companies and third parties that American Cosmetic Society does not own or control or to individuals whom American Cosmetic Society does not employ or manage. American Cosmetic Society reserves the right to use and control the information collected on the Site. By using the Site, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the Agreement and consent to the practices described in the Agreement.

In the course of providing products and services, we need to collect and maintain certain nonpublic personally identifiable information about you. We may use this personal information about you to: (a) service and maintain your account, (b) to provide the Service, (c) facilitate communication between you and other users, (d) respond to inquiries from you or your representative, (e) develop, offer, and deliver products and services (f) to serve advertisements on the Site, (g) to enable our vendors and contractors to provide and assist us in the marketing, operation, troubleshooting and analysis of the Site and other services, (h) to analyze data to send more targeted messages to you or other users of our Site, (i) to conduct research and analyze data to improve our products, services, and the Site, (j) to deliver email messages like special offers, updates, newsletters, customer service, and service announcements, (k) to comply with and meet any regulatory requirements for the offer or sale of securities required by law, rules or regulations to our affiliates or members, (l) to protect the Site or its users, (m) to engage in any other lawful activities we believe are consistent with the foregoing; and (n) when required by law or to protect against legal liability. This personal information may include your name, email address, home address and phone number, date of birth, social security number and/or tax identification number, employer, and job title. When you subscribe to make an investment in one of the opportunities listed on the Site, you will again be asked for some of the same personal data as well as some additional data, such as your bank routing number and bank account number. This data is needed in order to enable ourselves or our broker-dealer partners to utilize your bank account to originate funds transfers and later to make investment disbursements to you.

We use reasonable efforts to secure access to personally identifiable information in our possession, but will not be liable for any failure to safeguard such information, whether inadvertent or otherwise.

We may make your information, including non-personally identifiable information or personally identifiable information, available on the Site and visible to other users of or visitors to the Site. For instance, subject to certain preferences and permissions as to visibility you will be allowed to make, information you provide about yourself in response to questionnaires on the Site may be made available to others such as information concerning your status as an accredited investor. As such, other users of the Site may be able to personally identify you based on your information made available on the Site. As a further example, if you utilize third-party services to log into the Site, other users to whom you may be connected to through such third-party service may be able to view or follow information about you, including non-personally identifiable information or personally identifiable information, on the Site.

When you register as a user on the Service, you will receive emails that confirm specific actions you requested, including emails to which you must respond to complete your registration, and notifications confirming your registration. Thereafter, you may receive emails when a new investment opportunity is offered, as well as updates concerning the progress of the funding of such opportunity or offering other relevant information. If you make an investment through the Site, we will also send you non-brokerage confirmations of the investment and occasional updates as to the status of that investment and the timing of distributions relating to that investment. We may also send you responses to emails you send us, if appropriate. From time to time, we will also send user surveys, requests for user feedback regarding user experience and Site operations or marketing offers from us or from us on behalf of our marketing partners. The completion of these surveys or requests for feedback or acceptance of any offer is strictly voluntary. If you do not wish to receive these offers, surveys or user feedback emails, please opt out in any offer email you receive from us.

When you access the Service, we may collect technical and navigational information, such as computer browser type, Internet protocol address (“IP address”), pages visited, general statistical and tracking information, your computer operating system and browser information, and average time spent on our Sites. This information may be used, for example, to alert you to software compatibility issues, or it may be analyzed to improve our Web design and functionality. We train our employees about privacy and limit access to this information. To maintain security of your online session and prevent unauthorized users from accessing your account we use firewall barriers, encryption techniques and authentication procedures.

We will not sell, rent, license, or disclose any of your nonpublic personally identifiable information to any nonaffiliated third parties, except as described below. If you decide to close your account, American Cosmetic Society will continue to adhere to the privacy policies and practices as described in this notice.

We collect information about our users in four ways: (a) directly from the user, (b) from our web server logs, (c) through cookies, web-beacons, and server logs, and (d) from third parties with whom we may have agreements to perform certain functions or services on our behalf.

We reserve the right, but have no obligation, to monitor the User Content you post on the site. We have the right to remove any information or material posted on the Site for any reason or no reason, including without limitation, if in our sole opinion, such information or material violates, or may violate, any applicable law, the Agreement, or to protect or defend our rights or property or those of any third party.

Cookies, Web-Beacons & Server Logs

Cookies are small text files, which often include a unique but anonymous code, sent by a Site server to your Web browser and stored on your computer. They recognize you as a repeat visitor, allowing you to log in faster and enhance your navigation through the site and the general user experience. Cookies do not identify you by name as an individual or by account number. Cookies also track traffic patterns on our Site, helping us understand how you are using our Site. This information allows us to improve the security, content, navigation and functionality of our Site. Cookies note that your browser was used to visit certain sites, pages, or advertisements on a certain date, but are not used to collect or disseminate any personal information.

Additionally, we use cookies on our Sites and the sites on which we advertise to track advertising performance and to collect aggregate data on Web page viewing. We may contract with third-party service providers (e.g. Google Analytics) to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

You can manually disable cookies. You should review the online documentation of your browser or consult with the provider of your browser for instructions on how to disable cookies. However, disabling cookies may cause some parts of the Site to not function properly.

A “web beacon” is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a site or in an email which allows the website to record the simple actions of the user opening the page that contains the beacon. “Server logs” can be either a single log file or several log files automatically created and maintained by a server of activity performed by the server, which can include information about any transaction you conduct with the server.

Internet Protocol (IP) Address

As you enter our Site, we capture and retain the IP address of the device you are using, such as a personal computer or a handheld device. The IP address does not identify you or your personal information and is used for security purposes only. We may use this information to monitor and prevent fraud, diagnose problems, and (anonymously) estimate demographic information.

Nonpublic Personally Identifiable Information

In the event that you request access to the confidential investment details and business details of an offering on the Site or the Service, the email address linked to your American Cosmetic Society user account may be furnished to the issuer to facilitate communication between you.

American Cosmetic Society does not sell, rent, or license, or otherwise disclose nonpublic personally identifiable information about current or former clients to anyone, except in cooperation with the government and regulatory agencies with a lawful summons, court order, subpoena, fraud investigation, audit or regulatory examination, investigations of a violation of legal rights of American Cosmetic Society or any other person, or as permitted or required by law, to non-affiliated third parties that help us provide services to you. For example, the United States Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) requires that we verify your accredited investor status before you may invest in any offerings made available through our Site. Toward that end, American Cosmetic Society employs or contracts with other third parties, companies or individuals, to perform certain functions or services on its behalf. Examples of these services from such third parties, companies, or individuals, may include:
• ID verification;
• Accreditation/financial/credit verification;
• Electronic document signing;
• Payment storing and processing;
• Sending postal mail and email;
• Escrow services;
• Disbursement of funds;
• Analyzing data;
• Providing marketing assistance; and
• Providing customer service.

As such, these third parties, companies, or individuals may have access to nonpublic personally identifiable information concerning you that they provide to us. In turn, in order to comply with SEC requirements, we may have to share such information with issuers of securities or other offerings made available on our Site, with broker dealers, depending on the types of investments you will be making through the Site.

All non-affiliated third parties that accept or receive this information from us are obligated contractually or by law or regulation to keep this information confidential and to use the information only to provide the services we ask them to perform. These non-affiliated third parties will be provided with only that information necessary to perform their functions on our behalf, and we will not allow them to use your personally identifiable information for any other purpose. American Cosmetic Society shall be entitled to transfer to a third-party information it maintains, including any personally identifiable information, in connection with a transaction or proceeding involving a transfer of some or all of the assets relating to the Site or a business in connection with which such information is maintained.

We may store nonpublic personally identifiable information in locations outside of our direct control such as on servers, or databases maintained by hosting providers. You may decline to submit nonpublic personally identifiable information through American Cosmetic Society, in which case we may not be able to provide certain services to you. You may update or correct your account information and email preferences at any time in your online profile.

American Cosmetic Society may buy or sell assets or business offerings. Customer, email, and visitor information is generally one of the transferred business assets in these types of transactions. We may also transfer such information in the course of corporate divestitures, mergers, or dissolution. In any such transfer of information, your user information would remain subject to the Agreement.

If you use our blog on the Site, you should be aware that any personally identifiable information you submit there can be read, collected, or used by other users of this forum, and could be used to send you unsolicited messages. We are not responsible for the personally identifiable information you choose to submit in this forum.

Protecting Your Information

American Cosmetic Society uses commercially reasonable physical, managerial, and technical safeguards to preserve the integrity and security of your personal information. We employ a variety of security measures, including encryption and authentication tools. Your personal information is stored behind firewalls and is only accessible by a limited number of people who are required to keep the information confidential.

If you have a unique password (the "Password") for access to non-public areas of the Site, you are solely responsible for all activities that occur in connection with your Password. Accordingly, you should take steps to protect the confidentiality of your Password. Notify American Cosmetic Society immediately if you become aware of any disclosure, loss, theft or unauthorized use of your Password. To protect your privacy and security, maintain the secrecy of your unique Password and account information, and for controlling access to your email communications from American Cosmetic Society, at all times.

Despite these measures, we cannot guarantee that unauthorized persons will always be unable to defeat our security measures.

Compromise of Personal Information

In the event that we learn that personal information is compromised as a result of a breach of security, American Cosmetic Society will use its best efforts to promptly notify those persons whose personal information has been compromised, in accordance with the notification procedures set forth in the Agreement, or as otherwise required by applicable law.
