To Our Community
‐ Chris Morton, CEO / cofounder
When you visit Lyst’s websites (“the Sites”) and Lyst's mobile applications and any other platforms Lyst owns or controls and makes available to you (collectively, the “Services”), you access linked pages or blogs, features, content (including any information, text, graphics, photos, lists of items compiled by you, comments, reviews, links, or other materials uploaded, downloaded or appearing on, or linked to the Services) (collectively the “Content”). By granting us access to your personal data for the collection, use, disclosure and retention of your personal information by us, as described in this Notice, we can make the Services even better for you, like showing you more relevant products and making it easier for you to track products you are interested.
Any personal data about our users (the “User” or “you”) provided to or gathered by the Services is controlled by LYST LTD (a company incorporated in England and Wales, with company number 07132083 and with a registered office at of The Minster Building 7th Floor, 21 Mincing Lane, London EC3R 7AG) ("Lyst").
This Notice covers Lyst’s treatment of personal data that Lyst gathers when you access the Services and/or use the Content. We explain what information we gather, why we gather it and the choices you have regarding your personal information.
We may collect two types of data and information from you:
The first type of information is non-identifiable and anonymous information (“Non-personal information”). We are not aware of the identity of the User from which we have collected Non-Personal Information. Non-Personal Information is any unconcealed information which is available to us while Users are using the Sites. Non-personal Information which is being gathered consists of technical information and behavioural information, including, but not limited to, the operating system, type of browser, screen resolution, the period of time the User visited the Site, etc.
The second type of information is individually identifiable information (“Personal Information”).
This information may identify an individual or may be of a private and/or sensitive nature. Personal information which is being gathered consists of any personal details provided consciously and voluntarily by you including name, email, address, IP address and other unique identifiers and any other information you choose to provide to Lyst.
As customers, you do not have any legal obligation to provide any information to Lyst. However, we require certain information from you in order to operate properly, including completing a transaction on your behalf. Login credentials (email and username) enable us to personalize and improve our services. You hereby agree and acknowledge that any Personal Information you do provide to us is provided at your own free will, for the purposes mentioned in this Privacy Notice and that we may keep such Personal Information in a database(s) which will be registered and kept in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.
We retain personal information no longer than is legally permissible and delete personal information when it is no longer necessary for the purposes set out in this Notice.
We collect Personal Information when you register and open an account with Lyst by completing the registration form. We receive and store any information you enter on the Services or provide to us in any other way. The types of personal data collected may include your full name, email address, IP address, browser information, username, password, home and billing address, shipping address, credit card information and any other information necessary for us to provide the Services, including the usernames and passwords for your accounts and profiles on third-party sites with which the Services interoperates.
We will collect details of transactions you carry out through our Services and of the fulfilment of your orders. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our features (see section 9 below for further information on the choices you have).
b. More generally, our Services automatically collect usage information, such as the numbers and frequency of visitors to our Services and its components, similar to user music preference data or to TV ratings that indicate how many people watched a particular show. Lyst only uses this data in aggregate form, that is, as a statistical measure, and not in a manner that would identify you personally. This type of aggregate data enables us to figure out how often customers use parts of the Services or another feature of the Content so that we can make the Services appealing to as many customers as possible, and improve the Content. As part of this use of information, we may provide aggregate information to our partners about how our customers, collectively, use our Content. We share this type of statistical data so that our partners also understand how often people use our Content, so that they, too, may provide you with an optimal online experience. Again, Lyst never discloses aggregate information to a partner in a manner that would identify you personally, unless it needs to in order to complete a transaction on your behalf. Lyst only discloses information to third parties it trusts.
We often receive a confirmation when you open an email from Lyst if your computer supports this type of program. Lyst uses this confirmation to help us make emails more interesting and helpful. We also compare our customer list to lists received from other companies, in an effort to avoid sending unnecessary messages to our customers.
Depending on your email notification settings, we may send you instant, daily or weekly "sale alert" updates and other marketing emails that include new products you may be interested in. You can choose to stop getting these updates at any time by opting out for promotional emails using the unsubscribe link in the emails, updating your account settings or through other settings we may provide for this purpose.
When you download or use apps created by Lyst or its affiliates or subsidiaries and, where applicable, have requested or consented to location services, we may receive information about your mobile device and your location, including a unique identifier for your device. We may use this information to provide you with personalised content and location-based services, such as search results. Most mobile devices allow you to turn off location services. To learn more about what information your device makes available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
Non-personal Information is collected in order to:
Personal Information is collected in order to:
The data that we collect from you may be transferred to, and stored at, a destination outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). It may also be processed and used by staff operating outside the EEA who work for us or by one of our suppliers. Such staff may be engaged in, among other things, the fulfilment of your request, the processing of your payment details and the provision of support services. By submitting your personal data, you agree to this transfer, storing or processing. We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Notice.
All information you provide to us is hosted and stored on Amazon Web Services cloud-based services in Ireland which is also in compliant with ISO27001 standard. For further information on the measures taken by Amazon to protect the security of their servers and your personal data, please see: http://aws.amazon.com/security/. If you are not satisfied with the levels of security offered by our cloud provider, you should restrict the nature and amount of personal data or confidential information which you include in your log data or not use the Services. Any payment transactions will be encrypted using Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our Services, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. You must not share a password with anyone.
We share your Personal Information only as described in this Notice and require commercial entities with which we share your Personal Information to agree to keep your information confidential.
We may share your personal data with selected third parties including advertisers and advertising networks that require the data to select and serve relevant adverts to you and others. We do not disclose information about identifiable individuals to our advertisers, but we may provide them with aggregate information about our users (for example, we may inform them that 500 men aged under 30 have clicked on their advertisement on any given day). We may also use such aggregate information to help advertisers reach the kind of audience they want to target (for example, women in SW1). We may make use of the personal data we have collected from you to enable us to comply with our advertisers' wishes by displaying their advertisement to that target audience.
We may also share your personal data to analytics and search engine providers that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our site. We have implemented the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting feature. Click here for information on opting out of Google Analytics features.
We employ other companies and people to perform tasks on our behalf and need to share your information with them to provide products or services to you. Unless we tell you differently, Lyst’s agents do not have any right to use personal data we share with them beyond what is necessary to assist us.
User profile information including your username, name, email address, and other information you enter (“User Submissions”) may be displayed to other users to facilitate user interaction within the Services and allow you to follow other users, and them to follow you. Email addresses are used to add new User Submissions to user profiles and to communicate through User Submissions. Any personal data or content that you voluntarily disclose online (on discussion boards, in messages and chat areas, through reviews in product pages, etc.) become publicly available and can be viewed, collected and used by others. Any images, captions, physical descriptions, personal interests or other content that you submit to the Services may be redistributed through the Internet and other media channels, and may be viewed by the general public.
Please be aware that whenever you voluntarily post information to public areas on the Services or any other public forums, such information can be accessed by the public.
As part of the Services, you will receive from Lyst email and other communication relating to your User Submissions. You acknowledge and agree that by posting such User Submissions, Lyst may send you email and other communication that it determines in its sole discretion relate to your User Submissions. Lyst may need to provide you with certain communications, such as service announcements and administrative messages. These communications are considered part of the Services and your Lyst account, which you may not be able to opt-out from receiving.
In some cases, we may choose to buy or sell assets. In these types of transactions, customer information is typically one of the business assets that are transferred. Moreover, if Lyst, or substantially all of its assets were acquired, or in the unlikely event that Lyst goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, customer information would be one of the assets that is transferred to or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Lyst may continue to use your Personal Information as set forth in this Notice.
We may release personal data when we believe in good faith that release is necessary to comply with the law, regulation or legal request; enforce or apply our conditions of use and other agreements; or protect the rights, property, or safety of Lyst, our employees, our users, or others. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction. You agree that we may also share your data with entities where Lyst is engaged in a merger, acquisition, bankruptcy, dissolution, reorganization, or similar transaction or proceeding that involves the transfer of the information described in this Notice.
We allow you to purchase items from multiple different Lyst Partners via the Services through our Integrated Checkout service. Lyst Partners that are part of our Integrated Checkout marketplace (please see the terms and conditions for more information on the Integrated Checkout service) promote and market their items to you through the Services. Purchases made using our Integrated Checkout Service are processed either:
i. by the Lyst Partner using information that you provide to us, or
ii. by a third party payment process provider called Klarna (please see the terms and conditions for more information on Klarna and the Integrated Checkout service).
Further when you make a purchase through our Integrated Checkout services, we will share your personal data that is related to such transactions with the relevant Lyst Partner from whom you have purchased the item(s), but only using our secure systems. These details will be encrypted and used to process card transactions transactions and/or the orders which you have initiated. The details we provide may be used by the Lyst Partner, along with other personal data, as set forth in such Lyst Partners’ privacy policies for a number of purposes, including, without limitation, for keeping you up to date with their latest products, developments, and trends. Lyst Partners are solely responsible for their use and sharing of your personal data, and you should carefully review their privacy policies before completing a transaction on our Integrated Marketplace.
We require our partners to honor your opt-out requests if you elect to stop receiving marketing e-mails. Please be advised that you cannot opt-out of receiving emails related to your transactions. If, for whatever reason, your opt-out request is not honored, please let us know and we will attempt to resolve the issues.
We may also share your data with Lyst Partners in connection with certain promotions and competitions. These will be subject to additional rules and conditions which will be made available at the time of any such competition or promotion. You should carefully review the rules and conditions relating to such competitions and promotions.
By using the Services, you consent to our sharing of personal data for the above purposes.
We may share some or all of your personal data with any of our parent companies, subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under common control with us.
For the avoidance of doubt, Lyst may transfer and disclose Non-personal information to third parties at its own discretion.
The personal data in the Lyst account you have with us is protected by a password for your privacy and security. You need to ensure that there is no unauthorised access to your account and personal data by selecting and protecting your password appropriately and limiting access to your computer and browser by signing off after you have finished accessing your account. You are responsible for safeguarding the password that you use to access the Services and for any activities or actions under your password. Lyst encourages you to use “strong” passwords (passwords that use a combination of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols) with your account. Lyst cannot and will not be liable for any loss or damage arising from your failure to comply with the above requirements.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Lyst endeavors to protect personal data but Lyst cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Services. Unauthorised entry or use, hardware or software failure, and other factors, may compromise the security of user information at any time. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our platform; any transmission of data is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
We will take care to maintain appropriate safeguards to ensure the security, integrity and privacy of the information you have provided us with. We encrypt your information to protect it from unauthorised use. In addition, we will take reasonable steps to ensure that third party business partners' to whom we transfer any data will provide sufficient protection of that personal data.
To help ensure that your shopping experience is safe, simple, and secure, we use Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology.
