You should have the same unified experience no matter how we communicate. Whether this happens on our website, by e-mail or by phone and whether you contact us or we contact you, we want to provide you with relevant and tailored customer service.


For this purpose of providing you the Kering experience, we will collect, store, process, use, disclose and transfer your personal information to be able to identify you. This will allow us to provide you with the tailored assistance you are asking for or to share relevant information with you. In addition, when you contact us, we may retain the personal information you share with us to always provide you with such a customised and personalised experience.


To provide you with a smooth and enjoyable customer experience, know you better to provide you with tailored answers, and to improve the quality and security of our services, we may rely on your consent, proceed in accordance with our contract with you, or take all reasonable steps to enter into a contract with you, or rely on our legitimate interest to improve our services.


•    To enable you to receive relevant information and tailored marketing content.


You will receive information and updates about us either at your request (with your prior consent where required by law) or when we are authorised by law to send you such information and updates directly. Such communication can be global or local, and may include updates about services, invitations to events, offers, surveys, etc.


Our communications will be customised and specifically designed to be of interest to you. We will thus use your personal information to send you tailored communications or other customised advertisements or marketing campaigns. This use of your data includes some profiling activity.


When you share your contact information with us, we may use this personal information to contact you through related communication channels (such as text message, MMS, e-mail, post, internet means, social media or telephone), with your consent where required. You can of course request us not to use a particular channel of communication or opt-out (unsubscribe) from it by applying the opt-out option that will always be shared with you. If you want to stop receiving communication from us via all communication channels, please send an email to privacy@kering.com.


As part of the Kering experience, we will always try to customise and personalise your experience with us. This is why we will use your personal information to send you tailored communications or personalise your journey with us, but only with your prior consent where it is required under applicable privacy legislation. Our communications could include personalised events invitations or, at your request and where available, personalised and customised services. For these purposes, we will use the information you provide to us (for example your date of birth, your country of residence, your preferred means of contact etc.) and/or jointly or independently, certain patterns we may observe when interacting with you. With this information, we may create groups of similar customers (called “persona”) to whom we can decide to offer personalised content and experiences both in inbound or outbound interactions. In this context, we may make inferences about you, as derived from your personal information (profiling).


To enrich your personal information, we may use cookies or other online advertising technologies. Via such technologies, we will collect personal information related to your activities on social media and your browsing activity across different websites and devices. (for example: to know if you have visited our website after opening a newsletter you have received).

These companies have their own privacy and cookies policies and the way they use the personal information you share with them will be subject to their rules and not ours.


To enrich your personal information, we can match it with personal information held by others (for example, by sharing and matching your information with information held by trusted partners). This process will only be conducted by using customers’ unique identifiers and reidentification protocols in order to protect the confidentiality of your personal information.


Personal information will enable us to create “lookalike campaigns”, allowing us to reach new people who are likely to be interested in our services because they are similar to you. We may conduct such lookalike campaigns through our website, social media or other communication means. When lookalike campaigns are conducted, before it is shared your personal information is hashed and turned into short fingerprints that are impossible to reverse.


Using cookies or other online advertising technologies may also enable us to show you online advertisements that are “contextual” (meaning they are shown according to the webpage you are browsing), or “behavioural” or “interest based” (where advertisements are shown to you based on your interests which we have inferred from your information including demographic, geographic and interest-based data). We may use such advertisements to display services that are most relevant to you.

In addition, some third-party sites allow you to stop seeing advertisements from specific advertisers, so you may also set your preferences on those websites

9. For how long do we keep your personal information?
 

Our general approach is to retain your personal information only for as long as it is needed.


A. When you subscribe to our newsletters, we generally retain your personal information for 5 years from the last interaction you initiated with us.


B. When you interact with our customer services, we generally retain the recordings of the calls for 45 days (unless a longer retention period is required by law), and the other personal information you have shared with us (including personal information shared by mail, chat or text message or when our interaction is transcribed) for 5 years from the last interaction you initiated with us.


C. When we use cookies or other online advertising technologies, your consent shall only be valid for a maximum period of 13 months.


We may retain personal information for a shorter or longer time, for instance, where we are obliged to do so in accordance with relevant legal, tax and accounting requirements.


Last interaction shall be defined as the last contact you initiated which is traceable by our systems or by a sales associate. Last contact could be the last time a call, sales email, or meeting was proposed to you and to which you responded favorably. For instance, clicking on a link included in an email (except for a link to unsubscribe from receiving marketing content) are considered a last contact. Conversely, opening an email or visiting our website without logging in would not qualify as last contact.


Before deleting your personal information, we will contact you to inform you of such deletion and you may ask us to keep your personal information. By not answering you agree to the deletion of any personal information that we are not legally obliged to keep for longer in accordance with legal, tax and accounting requirements.


We will destroy your personal information without delay once it is no longer necessary (e.g., if the purposes of collection/use of the personal information have been accomplished, if the statutory retention period expires) in a way that prevents such personal information from being restored or recovered. If printed on paper, the personal information will be destroyed by shredding, incinerating, or some other similar method and, if saved in electronic form, the personal information will be destroyed by technical methods which ensure that the personal information cannot be restored or recovered thereafter.


In specific circumstances we may also retain your personal information for longer according to the applicable statute of limitations so that we have an accurate record of your dealings with us in the event of any complaints or challenges.


Additional information for South Korean residents:


We may retain certain personal information in accordance with the following legal requirements:


o    Records on contracts and withdrawal of subscriptions: 5 years (as required under the Act on Consumer Protection in Electronic Commerce Transactions)

10. How do we protect your personal information?
 

We, Kering, are strongly committed to keeping your personal information safe.


To do so, we design our services with your safety in mind. Within our group, we have dedicated teams managing and ensuring the security and privacy of your personal information. We have adopted specific technical and organisational security measures to protect personal information against accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised disclosure or access.


For example, whenever personal information is passed between your device and our servers, we ensure that it is encrypted using Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) and/or other security methods. We implement Hyper Text Transfer Protocol over Secure Socket Layer (“HTTPS”) in order to protect your connection to our website. All your personal information is stored on secured servers.


We have also established a specialised personal information security management system. For example, we strictly control the scope of authorisation of our employees who have access to the personal information that we collect and process. We regularly review our information collection, storage and processing practices, including physical security measures, to guard against any unauthorised access and use.


We conduct security and privacy protection training courses and tests on a regular basis to enhance our employees’ awareness of the importance of protecting personal information. We take commercially reasonable steps to make sure that our business partners and third-party service providers are able to protect your personal information. Our employees and those of our business partners and third-party service providers who have access to your personal information are subject to enforceable contractual obligations of confidentiality and specific contractual privacy provisions.


In the event of a security incident resulting in any breach of personal information, as qualified by law, we have an emergency response plan in place to prevent the expansion of such security incidents. In addition, we will report such personal information breach to the relevant supervisory authority as required by applicable law, and inform you via an appropriate channel as and where required by applicable law.


However, you should be aware that no service can be completely secure, and you play a key role in keeping your personal information safe. For the best possible protection of your personal information outside the limits of our control, your devices should be protected (e.g. by updated antivirus software) and your internet service providers should take appropriate measures for the security of personal information transmission over the network (e.g. with firewalls and anti-spam filtering). You accept the inherent security implications of interacting over the Internet and will not hold us or our partners responsible for any security incident or breach of personal information unless it is due to our negligence.


If you have any concerns that your personal information has been put at risk, please contact us as soon as possible.

11. Where do we store your personal information?
 

We operate globally and may transfer your personal information to other companies within Kering or to approved partners in locations around the world. We want you to have the best service and customer experience, whether online or in person all over the world. For this purpose, we may have to share your personal information outside the country where you have first shared it with us. When we do so, it will always be for the purposes described in this privacy policy and where we are satisfied with the levels of protection and security implemented in compliance with applicable privacy legislation. This sharing of your personal information is necessary to enable us to perform the contracts we have with you or take steps at your request, prior to entering into a contract, in order to offer you a global customer experience.


In most cases, the personal information we collect from you will be stored in servers located in the European Union or Switzerland. However, this may vary depending on the country in which the information is collected or applicable legislation. For more information about the location where your personal information is stored, you can contact us at privacy@kering.com (or see How can you contact us?)


We want to ensure that your personal information is always safely used and available to you, wherever you want to access it and for whatever reason you wish to use it.


When we share, use or transfer personal information in particular from the European Union, we use standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission, or put in place other measures under applicable privacy legislation, to ensure that such transfer provides adequate safeguards. You can contact us at privacy@kering.com (or see How can you contact us?) for more information about these safeguards including how to obtain copies of this information.

12. Do we sell your personal information?
 

We do not sell your personal information and have not done so in the past 12 months.


We may allow selected third parties (such as approved advertising partners) to collect your personal information via automated technologies on our websites (see “Do we use cookies or other online advertising technologies?“) in an effort to provide you with content and advertisements that may be of interest to you and on the legal bases set out in this privacy policy.


However, to the extent our transfers of your personal information to certain third-parties may be interpreted as a “sale” under California privacy law, if you are a Californian resident you have the right to opt out of that sale.


If you are a Californian resident, you also have the right to opt out of such disclosure of your information for online interest-based advertising purposes.


Californian residents’ rights are further described in the section: “Information for Californian residents” under the provision attached to the following question: “What are my rights regarding my personal information?

Right of access - You may be entitled to request that we disclose to you personal information we have collected about you, in the preceding 12 months, the categories of sources from which the information was collected, the purposes of collecting the information, the categories of third parties we have shared the information with, and the categories of personal information that have been shared with third parties for a business purpose.


B. Right of data portability – In some instances, you may have the right to receive the information about you in a portable and readily usable format.


C. Right to have personal data erased – Subject to certain conditions, you may be entitled to request that we delete personal information about you. We will not delete personal information about you when the information is required to fulfill a legal obligation, is necessary to exercise or defend legal claims, or where we are required or permitted to retain the information by law.


If you chose to exercise any of these rights, we will not discriminate against you on the basis of choosing to exercise your privacy rights. We may, however, charge a different rate or provide a different level of service to the extent permitted by law.


Sale of your personal information


As set out in the section Do we sell your personal information?, we do not sell your personal information nor have we done so in the past twelve months. We may allow selected third parties (such as approved advertising partners) to collect your personal information via automated technologies on our websites in an effort to provide you with content and advertisements that may be of interest to you and on the legal bases set out in this privacy policy.


However, to the extent our transfers of your personal information to certain third-parties may be interpreted as a “sale” under California privacy law, you have the right to opt out of that sale of your personal information. Please note that we will still share your information in ways that are not a “sale,” such as with our service providers, for our own online advertising purposes.


For information about how to manage cookies and opt out of online interest-based advertising, please review your browser or see our section “Do we use cookies or other online advertising technologies?“. Your opt-out of interest-based advertising on your browser will be specific to the web browser or device you use at the time you exercise your opt-out rights; if you use multiple web browsers or devices, you will need to opt-out from each browser and device. Opting-out of the use of your information for interest-based advertising purposes does not mean you will stop seeing ads, including interest-based ads.


If you are a Californian resident you also have the right to submit a Shine the Light Request: you may have the right to request that we provide you with a list of certain categories of personal information we have disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, as well as the identity of those third parties.


Verification of your request


Before providing you with the above rights, we must be able to verify your identity. In order to verify your identity, you will need submit information about yourself, including, to the extent applicable, providing your account login credentials or other account information, answers to security questions, your name, government identification number we already have on file, date of birth, contact information, or other personal identifying information. We will match this information against information we have previously collected about you to verify your identity and your request. To the extent you maintain an account with us, we will require you to login to that account as part of submitting your request. If we are unable to verify your identity as part of your request, we will not be able to satisfy your request. We are not obligated to collect additional information in order to enable you to verify your identity. For deletion requests, you will be required to submit a verifiable request for deletion and then to confirm separately that you want personal information about you deleted.


How to make your request


You may make one request per calendar year. In your request, please attest to the fact that you are a Californian resident and provide a current California address for your response. You may request this information in writing by contacting us at privacy@kering.com, by completing the form available here or calling our toll-free number [+ 1 646 889 1945].


When can you expect to hear from us


We will confirm receipt of your request within 10 business days and provide information about how we will process the request, including the verification process and expected response time. Please allow up to forty-five (45) days for a response, from the day the request is received. We may require an additional forty-five (45) calendar day extension.


“”Additional Information: to the extent permitted by applicable law, we may charge a reasonable fee to comply with your request. This statement is available in alternative formats upon request.

J. Modalities of response to your requests, additional information or assistance


If you need any further information regarding your rights or how to exercise any of your rights, or if you have any complaints or questions regarding our privacy practices, please contact our privacy team and Data Protection Officer at privacy@kering.com or by completing the form available here (or see How can you contact us?).


To help protect your privacy and maintain security, we will take steps and may require you to provide certain information to verify your identity before granting you access to your personal information or complying with your request.


Where permissible under applicable law, we reserve the right to charge a fee for instance if your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, to cover the administrative costs incurred by your request. We will endeavour to respond to your request as soon as possible and in any case within the applicable timeframe.


In certain countries (such as if you are a Californian resident), if you ask us to provide you with specific pieces of personal information, we will require you to sign a declaration under penalty of perjury that you are the person whose personal information is the subject of the request.


If you designate an authorised agent to make an access, deletion or opt-out of sale request on your behalf (a) we may require you to provide the authorised agent written permission to do so, and (b) for access and deletion requests, we may require you to verify your own identity directly with us.

When you visit any website, it may store or retrieve information using your browser, mostly in the form of cookies.

At any time you have the option to accept or decline the use of cookies using the on/off settings of the preference centre, by clicking on the button below:



A. What is a cookie?


A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to place on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Those cookies are set by us and are called first party cookies. We also use third-party cookies – which are cookies from a domain other than that of the website you are visiting – for our advertising and marketing initiatives.


B. Why do we use cookie?


Cookies are used for various purposes, such as allowing the user to navigate between pages seamlessly, implementing the user’s preferences and improving their overall browsing experience, by customising the website according to their navigation and user profile as a Kering website users. They can also help ensure that the adverts seen online by the user are more relevant to them and their interests.

Our website uses several types of cookie which have different durations. In particular we use:


-    Session cookies, which only last for the duration of a browsing session and facilitate your experience on our website; and


-    Persistent cookies, which last for more than one visit and memorise your preferred settings regarding our website.


These cookies can also be categorised as follows, depending on who sets them on our website:


-    First party cookies, which are supplied by the publisher of the website you are visiting, so that it functions properly.


-    Third party cookies, which are set on the website by third parties, and are intended to collect data in different ways and for several purposes, for example: collection of analytics data and information on social interactions and behaviours, and also for promotional activities.


D. What categories of cookie are on our website?


The types of cookie used on our website serve different purposes and can fall into one of the categories below.


Strictly necessary cookies


These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you that amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will then not work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.


Performance & analytics cookies


These cookies allow us to count visits and determine traffic sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site.

If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site.


Functionality cookies


These cookies enable the personalisation of website content by recognising users and remembering their preferences. They may be set by us or by third-party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, some or all of these services may not function properly.


Profiling and targeting cookies


These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. They do not directly store personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.


Social cookies


These cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the site and which enable you to share our content with your friends and networks.

If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.

This site uses cookies.


By continuing to browse the site, you agree to the use of our cookies so that we can offer you targeted advertising tailored to your interests.

 

What is a cookie ?

A cookie is a type of digital tag that stores your online visit. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser during your first visit to a website. When you next visit the site from the same device, the cookie and the information it contains are sent back to the original website (original cookies) or to another site to which it belongs (third-party cookies). The website can therefore detect that it has already been opened using this browser.
A cookie will usually contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number. A "session" cookie is deleted when you close your web browser.
Some cookies are extremely useful as they improve your user experience when you visit a website that you have already visited before. This assumes that you are using the same device and browser as before and if this is the case, the cookies will remember your preferences.
We only use cookies to follow you anonymously on our website. We can therefore provide you with the most suitable content and the best user experience.


Cookies on this site that do not require consent :

Obligatory cookies, also called "strictly necessary cookies", activate essential features for browsing on the website. These cookies are only used by KERING and are therefore called original cookies. They are only stored on your computer while you browse the website. When a page is changed, these cookies make it possible, for example, to facilitate the redirection of http pages to https pages, which enables the security of the transferred data to be maintained. This type of cookie also allows you to record your preferences for the use of cookies on our site.
The use of obligatory cookies is not subject to your consent.
Obligatory cookies cannot be disabled via the features of this website.
You can, however, disable cookies in your browser at any time.
 


Original cookies subject to user consent on this website.

In strict legal terms, cookies which are not absolutely essential for the use of this website but provide essential features. Without them, access to certain features that improve the ease of browsing, such as pre-filled forms, is no longer possible. Selected settings, such as the choice of language, will no longer be saved and will therefore need to be reset on each page. Furthermore, we will no longer be able to offer you personalised offers.


Use of third-party cookies subject to user consent on this web site.

KERING has integrated content belonging to third parties on this website. This involves, for example, Facebook services and YouTube videos. These third-party providers may, in theory, deposit cookies when you visit the KERING website and therefore be informed of your visit to said site. Please check the websites of these third-party providers for more information on their cookie policy.


Enabling/disabling cookies.

If you have decided to refuse consent to the use of cookies where consent is required, or if you have revoked consent, you may then only benefit from the website features that do not require such cookies. If this is the case, sections of the website that may incorporate content from third parties, and therefore place third-party cookies, will not be offered.

If you do not wish to accept cookies at all, you can also configure this option in your browser.
