When using the term “personal information” in this Privacy Statement, we mean information that relates to you and allows us to identify you, either directly or in combination with other information that we may hold. We obtain this information directly from you when you place an order, set up an account with us, or use our website. We may collect the following personal information about you:

We use a third party payment gateway to take payment for any orders placed, but Quest does not process or store payment details.

If you choose to click through to third party websites via our website, third parties may collect information about your use of our website, using certain technologies available to them, for example cookies. Similarly, where you choose to interact with Quest’s content on social media, third parties may collect information about these interactions. Information collected by these third party services is governed by the privacy policies of those third parties. Where you are directed to a third party’s website by Quest, Quest is only responsible for the processing of your personal information by that third party, where the third party is processing your personal data on instructions from Quest.

  1. How and why we use the personal information that we collect

We use your personal information for the following purposes:

  • To fulfil your order: When you place your Avon order, we use your personal information to fulfil that order.  We may contact you by email and/or SMS to send you confirmation of your order, payment and order status.  This is to meet our contractual obligations to you.
  • To inform you about our products and offers that you may like: If you have logged in to our website or purchased from us previously, we may send you email and/or SMS communications about our products and offers.  We may also, from time to time, inform you of opportunities to become an Avon Representative as part of our marketing communications; which you will only receive if you have opted to receive them.  Such marketing communications are sent on the basis of your consent, which you can withdraw at any time by contacting us as set out below. We may use the information we have about you (including your purchasing history) to build a profile about your preferences, and to send you products and offers tailored to you. You may also see advertising related to Avon products across the web on the basis of the information we hold about you. This is to meet our legitimate business interests in marketing our products effectively. If you do not want to receive marketing communications (e.g. emails) from us, please contact us.  Where you interact with Avon by posting or messaging on social media, we may use personal information included in social media posts for this purpose.
  • To improve our services, fulfil our administrative purposes and protect our business interests: The business purposes for which we will use your personal information include accounting, billing, security and legal purposes (including to investigate complaints or claims, and to administer the Avon product guarantee and any other rights to return products), statistical and marketing analysis, systems testing, maintenance and development. This will include the use of your personal information to comply with our legal obligations, for example, our obligation to maintain records for tax and audit purposes. Where there is no specific legal obligation we are required to meet, we process this personal information to meet our legitimate interests in managing our business and keeping our records accurate and up to date.
  • To request your participation in product reviews: We may contact you to ask you to participate in product reviews.  This may be for a product you have purchased, a sample provided by Avon or a product we think you may be interested in.  We process this information on the basis of our legitimate interest to improve our product offering.  If you choose to participate, the processing of the information relating to your participation and review is carried out on the basis of your consent, which you can withdraw at any time by contacting us.
  • To administer competitions you enter and incentive schemes you have signed up for
    We run certain competitions, and will need to process your name and contact details if you enter, as well as to let you know if you have won. We do this on the basis of your consent, which you can withdraw at any time by contacting us as set out below. Specific uses of personal data in this context will be detailed in the competition rules. 

If you object to the use of your personal information to fulfil any of the purposes set out above, please contact us.  Whilst your decision to provide your personal information to Quest is generally voluntary, if you do not provide certain information Quest may not be able to accomplish some of the purposes outlined in this Privacy Statement. For example, we may not be able to post products to you without knowing your postal address.
