Account creation and profile
In order to provide our services we ask you to create an account. Since our concept relies on getting feedback on the creams from our users, each user has a profile that is used to identify them and their journey with their skin. This setup also allows us to better and more easily decouple your skin data with your personal information in our technical backend.

User skin profile
Our services and products rely on users to fill out a skin profile; a series of questions about themselves, their skin and well-being. We feed these answers to our Bayesian statistical model in our backend, which then recommends an ingredient combination in a cream that statistically performs best on their skin. It knows this from learning other users’ feedback. The more feedback the model receives, the better it can become at recommending a good ingredient combination.

The personal data is registered with Nøie and stored for five years (after inactivity), after which the information is deleted.

Processing your payment (PCI Compliance)

If you choose a direct payment gateway to complete your purchase, ClearHaus stores your credit card data. It is encrypted via the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI-DSS). Your purchase transaction data will only be stored for as long as necessary to complete your purchase transaction. Then your purchase transaction information is deleted.

PCI-DSS requirements help ensure the secure handling of credit card information by our store and its providers.

Security

To prevent unauthorised access, maintain data accuracy and ensure correct use of information, we have put in place appropriate physical, electronic, and managerial procedures to secure the information we collect online. In addition, we have entered into data processing agreements with all third-party suppliers to ensure that they meet our high standards, including in connection with security.

If you provide us with your credit card information, the information is encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology and stored with AES-256 encryption. Although no transmission method over the Internet or electronic storage is 100% secure, we comply with all PCI-DSS requirements and implement additional generally accepted industry standards.

Your rights and responsibilities

You may request us or a third party instructed by us to:

  • Obtain insight into your personal data, as well as information on the purpose of the processing, the categories of recipients of the information, and any available information about the source of such data.
  • Correct, delete, or block any personal information that we or any third-party instructed by us has about you if it proves inaccurate or misleading.
  • You may revoke this consent at any time with respect to our use of your personal information. If you have requested to receive information from us, e.g. newsletters, etc. and do not want to receive further information, you can easily choose not to receive further information from us by sending an email to privacy@noie.com or unsubscribe from the link contained in the newsletter.
