SECTION 4 – WITH WHOM WE MAY SHARE YOUR INFORMATION
We may sometimes use other businesses to perform certain services for us, such as maintaining the Site and our mailing lists, processing orders and delivering products, sending postal mail, and providing marketing assistance and data analysis. We may provide Personal Information to those businesses when that information is necessary for them to complete a requested transaction or otherwise perform their duties. Skin Citizen will take reasonable steps to ensure that these third-party service providers are obligated to protect Personal Information on Skin Citizen. You may also have given us permission to send you information regarding products which we may believe may be of interest to you. As Skin Citizen develops, we may buy other businesses or their assets or sell our business assets. Customer information is generally one of the business assets involved in such transactions. Thus, in the event that Skin Citizen or all of its assets are acquired, customer information would be one of the transferred assets. We reserve the right to disclose visitor information in special cases when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interference with (either intentionally or unintentionally) our rights or property, other visitors, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities. We also reserve the right to disclose visitor information when we believe in good faith that the law requires it.

SECTION 17 – USE OF FACEBOOK PIXEL AND FACEBOOK CONVERSIONS API
We use the “visitor action pixels” from Facebook Inc. (1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA) (“Facebook”) on our website.
This allows your behaviour to be tracked after you have been redirected to our website by clicking on a Facebook ad. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, and we do not see the personal data of individual users.
We also use Facebook’s Conversions API. Data is shared using your web browser and from Shopify’s servers, and is sent directly to Facebook’s servers. Data sent from server to server cannot be blocked by browser-based ad blockers. Your personal information will be used to match users on Facebook’s network. The information collected using this setting includes your name, location, email address, and phone number, as well as your browsing behaviour on our online store. Skin Citizen uses this information for its legitimate interests to measure customer actions, improve the accuracy of information sent for targeting, measurement, and optimization, and for more control over data sharing. You agree that Skin Citizen can collect this data through the Facebook Conversions API platform for these purposes.
The legal basis for this use is Article 6, paragraph 1, sentence 1, letter f of the GDPR. You can object to the collection of your data by Facebook pixel, or to the use of your data for the purpose of displaying Facebook ads by contacting the following address: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads.
