Automatic Collection of Anonymous Information
When you visit the Ferbs Cosmetics websites, like when you visit most other websites, certain anonymous information about your visit is automatically logged, which may include information about the type of browser you use, the server name and IP address through which you access the internet (such as “google.com” or “yahoo.com” for example), the date and time you access the site and the pages you access while at the Ferbs Cosmetics website. The exact analytic data collection may vary from time to time but never will this information be or become personally identifiable.
What Personal Information is Collected
Depending on how you use FerbsCosmetics.com, we may ask you to share personal information with us. Whether you choose to give Ferbs Cosmetics information is completely up to you, but keep in mind that if you withhold information, you may not be able to use some of our services including free samples.
When Personal Information is Collected
Ferbs Cosmetics will ask you for information, including some personal information, if you use one of several services:
Becoming a registered user. In order to register, you need to share some personal information, such as your name and e-mail address. You do not have to be a registered user to visit FerbsCosmetics.com’s web pages. But, you will have to register to place orders or make full use of our services.
Making a Purchase.
When you buy something or make a purchase on FerbsCosmetics.com, you have to supply a billing address, phone number and shipping address.
Ferbs Cosmetics does not store credit card numbers or bank information but instead uses PayPal and Google Checkout for your protection and convenience. By making a purchase, you become a registered user of Ferbs Cosmetics.com and certain account information such as your shipping and billing addresses is saved for your convenience in the Store > My Account.
If you change your mind about storing this information, you can amend or delete it by going to the relevant area of the My Account page and following the instructions. You can access this section using your registration password.
View our shipping policy for more detailed shipping information and terms.
From time to time you may be able to participate in certain activities on the FerbsCosmetics.com website such as chat rooms, bulletin boards or social networks, which will allow you the opportunity to communicate with Ferbs Cosmetics or other users of the FerbsCosmetics.com community. Unless otherwise noted, these activities are generally accessible to all users of the FerbsCosmetics.com community and any information that you post or otherwise make available through these forums will be non-confidential and known to all other users. Accordingly, please exercise discretion when using these forums.
You acknowledge and agree that Ferbs Cosmetics does not review, censor, or in any manner control the content of these forums and consequently Ferbs Cosmetics has no liability or responsibility whatsoever for information made available through these forums and that you will be liable to Ferbs Cosmetics for any liability that we incur as a result of any statement made by you in these forums. Your use of these forums is also subject to Ferbs Cosmetics’s Terms & Conditions of Use.
Sweepstakes, Contests and Surveys.
If you enter a sweepstakes or contest, or answer a survey, you will become a registered user (if you are not one already). We may also ask you for some demographic information, such as your age. If you choose not to answer, you most likely will not be able to participate in the sweepstakes, contest or survey.
Ferbs Cosmetics Mobile
If you provide your mobile phone number in order to receive text message alerts containing free product, event and tattoo information, cosmetics tips or promotions (“Ferbs Cosmetics Mobile Messages”) you will become a registered user (if you are not one already). Ferbs Cosmetics does not charge a fee to send or receive Mobile Messages, however, your mobile service provider may charge you for sending and/or receiving text messages and air-time, as well as any other standard applicable rates charged by your mobile service provider. If you do elect to receive them and later decide that you would no longer like to receive Ferbs Cosmetics Mobile Messages, reply to the text with the words ‘STOP’ or contact us with your name and mobile number to be removed from our opt-in list. We know, it’s a lame way to opt-out but it’s something we’re hoping will be better in the future.
Our Ratings & Reviews or Poll (Question & Answer) Services.
When you use the Ratings & Reviews or the Question & Answer services you will become a registered user (if you aren’t already one) and any personal information you submit will become part of your profile, as maintained by Ferbs Cosmetics.
Tattoo Advisor and Tattoo Undercover Advisor.
If you are not already registered and you send an e-mail to our Tattoo or Tattoo Undercover Advisor, we will create a registration profile for you. This will make you a registered user. We may also collect information about e-mails that you send to our advisors. We use this information for product and site analysis only. Contact Us to ask a specific question to our Tattoo Advisor and Tattoo Undercover Advisor.
If you provide personal information to us with respect to employment, such as your resume, we will treat such personal information as confidential and use it only to consider you for current and future employment opportunities and to contact you with respect to employment with us or our affiliates. An “Affiliate” is a person or entity that directly or indirectly through one or more intermediaries, controls or is controlled by, or is under common control with, our company. We will retain your recruiting information for further recruitment opportunities that may arise, unless you tell us that you no longer wish for us to retain your information.

How Ferbs Cosmetics Protects Your Information
We realize that our customers trust us to protect their personal information. We take that task seriously. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information. For example:
We use industry-standard Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) authentication to guarantee the confidentiality of online transactions made on our site. SSL authentication and encryption of the information that you send to us over the Internet help protect your online transaction information from third party interception.
- We never store or even ask you for your credit card information online. When making online purchases, you will be directed to use either Google Checkout or PayPal to complete your purchases. This may change in the future but for now is set in place for your protection.
- We urge you to protect your own privacy. We recommend that you do not share your password with anyone or share your password in an unsolicited phone call or e-mail.
Unfortunately, despite all of our efforts, there is always a risk that third parties may unlawfully intercept transmissions. This reality is true of all Internet use. As a result, we cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit, and you transmit all information at your own risk.
How Ferbs Cosmetics Uses Your Personal Information
Ferbs Cosmetics collects personal information primarily to make our services more rewarding for you to use. We usually use this information for internal purposes, such as studying our customers’ preferences to help provide better products and customer service. When requested we may also use your information to contact you for account and promotional purposes.
In the event that another company buys the assets, inventory, stock and Ferbs, LLC – the company of Ferbs Cosmetics.com, your personal information may then belong to another entity.
Who Views Your Personal Information
Ferbs Cosmetics may share your personal information with companies that perform services for us, such as fulfilling orders, delivering packages, sending postal mail and e-mails, analyzing customer data, providing marketing assistance, processing credit card payments, investigating fraudulent activity, conducting customer surveys, and providing customer service. They have access to personal information needed to perform their functions, but may not disclose your personally identifiable information for other purposes.
Some personal information is stored on servers owned by other companies. Only Ferbs Cosmetics has the right to access this information. Ferbs Cosmetics does not buy or sell third party contact information or email lists.
We currently do not share aggregate information about our customers with advertisers and marketing partners and in the case this information is shared in the future, the information does not and will not identify individual users.
Any personal information that you include in your profile or any content submitted when using the Forums, Comments, Ratings & Reviews or the Question & Answer services will be displayed on FerbsCosmetics.com and on the internet, so please consider before submitting any such content.
Ferbs Cosmetics does not sell or license personal information. Personal information may be disclosed if required by law.
