This Privacy Notice outlines the types of personal information that is collected and received by Beautiful Ingredient and how it is used. By using any of the services at www.beautifulingredient.com, you expressly consent to the information handling practices described in this Privacy Notice.
At Beautiful Ingredient, we are committed to protecting visitor privacy and will not sell or rent your name or personal information to any third party. We do not sell, rent, or provide outside access to our mailing list or any data we store. The personal information collected by Beautiful Ingredient is kept as confidential as reasonably possible, using administrative, physical, and technical safeguards to protect personal information. Only authorized personnel have access to this personal information. Beautiful Ingredient will keep personal information only for as long as is necessary for the purposes described in this Privacy Notice, and as required by law.
Any information you provide is used solely for the stated purpose unless you agree in advance to additional use (for example, you may be asked if you would like to be added to an email list). You may request at any time to be removed from the lists.
Beautiful Ingredient may release personal information if required by law, search warrant, subpoena, court order or fraud investigation. We may also use personal information in a manner that does not identify you specifically nor allow you to be contacted but does identify certain criteria about our Site's users in general (such as we may inform third parties about the number of registered users, number of unique visitors, and the pages most frequently browsed).
We reserve the right to modify this privacy notice at any time, so please review it frequently. Changes and clarifications will take effect immediately upon their posting on the website. If we make material changes to this policy, we will indicate the date of the updates here (below).
Beautiful Ingredient may collect personal information in the following ways:
Cookies and Web Beacons
Certain links on this site lead to websites controlled by other parties over whom Beautiful Ingredient has no control. These third party sites have separate and independent privacy policies, and we encourage you to read them. Beautiful Ingredient makes no representation or warranty concerning the content or accuracy of third party information and therefore expressly disclaims any liability. Some of the links on this site are affiliate links. We may earn a commission through clicks or purchases made using that link.
Some third-party service or advertising providers may be located outside the United States, therefore governed by laws according to their country. By providing any type of personal information, you consent to possible use of your personal information outside of the United States.
Like many other websites, Beautiful Ingredient makes use of log files. The information inside the log files can include internet protocol (IP) addresses, type of browser, date/time stamp, referring/exit pages, and number of clicks to analyze trends, administer the site, track user's movement around the site, and gather demographic information. IP addresses and other such information are not linked by us to any information that is personally identifiable.
Squarespace Analytics and Google Analytics: Google Analytics and Squarespace Analytics provide visitor demographics and a variety of information to help us understand how our website is being used in order to improve the user experience. User data is anonymous. The Squarespace Activity Log, which contains the analytical information, only shows activity over the past seven days. Beautiful Ingredient can gain additional insight through Google Analytics, including age and gender. Again, user data is anonymous and is used by Beautiful Ingredient to understand its visitors in the context of visiting the website for the purpose of providing a positive user experience. After May 25, 2018, Google Analytics plans to have an opportunity for users like Beautiful Ingredient to delete data after a determined amount of time. Beautiful Ingredient has chosen the minimum amount of time, 14 months, which will take effect after May 25th. For more information, check out Google Analytics Help and Squarespace's information and example of their Activity Log. Visitors can opt-out of Google Analytics for Display Advertising. Users can completely block Google Analytics tracking using Google’s Opt-out browser add-on.
The following data may be collected through your device and browser: your device's IP address (a numerical, anonymous format), device type, geographic location including city/state/country, preferred language used to display the webpage, pages visited, date and time pages were visited, referring domain, browser version. This data is used by Beautiful Ingredient for the purpose of understanding website visitors and determining ways to improve their site visits.
Currently, we have one affiliate advertising partner: Amazon. Information regarding Amazon's use of personal information can be found on their website. If you choose to make a purchase through the links to Amazon on this site, Beautiful Ingredient will receive a small percentage of the sale at no extra cost to you.
We encourage you to consult the privacy notices of any third-parties we use for more detailed information on their practices as well as for instructions about how to opt-out of certain practices.
By providing us with your personal information, you are consenting to its use as described in this Privacy Notice or as provided where you are invited to provide any personal information. Persons under the age of 18 may only provide personal information with the consent of a parent or guardian, or as otherwise required by law. We do not knowingly or intentionally collect personal information from or direct any advertising to children under 18 years of age. By using the website, you represent and warrant that you are either at least 18 years of age or using the website with the approval and supervision of a parent or guardian.
The Beautiful Ingredient Shop
The Beautiful Ingredient Shop is run through Squarespace and processed through Stripe, so these third parties have access to information provided at the time of sale, including name, address, and credit card information. Sensitive data and communication is encrypted with Stripe, which is certified to PCI Service Provider Level 1. This is the most stringent level of certification available in the payments industry. To accomplish this, they make use of best-in-class security tools and practices to maintain a high level of security at Stripe.
Returns & Exchanges
All orders are non-refundable unless your items arrive damaged or we accidentally sent you the wrong item. Please contact us at if your order arrived damaged. Please keep in mind that monitors display colors differently. Colors on products you receive may vary slightly from the image you see on your screen.
Shipping & Handling
Most orders will ship within three business days unless otherwise noted within the product description or prior arrangements have been made directly with us. Orders placed around holidays may be subject to additional processing time, as we are processing a large amount of orders during those times. Once a package leaves our shop, we are unable to control how it is handled by the carrier. Should your order arrive damaged, please contact us immediately so that we can do our best to help resolve the issue. Please verify your shipping address is correct at checkout (through our shop AND through PayPal if you choose to checkout with their services) before submitting your order. We are not responsible for orders shipped to incorrectly submitted addresses.
Generally, shipping estimates and rates are based on domestic USA shipping only. International shipping is not always available. As an international buyer, please inquire prior to ordering. International orders require extended shipping time, 6-8 weeks or longer, in some cases. Shipping times vary greatly based on your international shipping address. Please note import duties, taxes and other charges are not included in the item price or shipping costs. These charges are the buyer’s responsibility; please check with your country’s customs office to determine what these additional costs will be prior to purchasing, and then contact us to find out if we are currently shipping internationally. Due to the added time and complication of international orders, we reserve the right to accept them on a case by case basis.
