This Privacy Policy describes how Glossier, Inc. and our subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “Glossier,” “we,” “us,” and/or “our”) collect, use, disclose, and otherwise process information about you. This Privacy Policy applies when you access or use our websites, shop in our stores or pop-ups, communicate with us through our customer support channels or via social media, and otherwise interact with us. We may provide different or additional notices of our privacy practices for certain products, services, or activities, in which case those notices will supplement or replace the disclosures in this Privacy Policy. For instance, if you reside in California, Colorado, Connecticut, Utah, or Virginia, our U.S. State Privacy Notice applies in addition to this Privacy Policy.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. If we make changes, we will notify you by revising the date at the top of this policy. If we make material changes, we will provide you with additional notice (such as by adding a statement to our websites or sending you a notification). We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy regularly to stay informed about our information practices and the choices available to you.

  • We disclose information about you to our professional advisors, including accountants, auditors, lawyers, insurers, and bankers, where necessary to obtain advice or otherwise protect and manage our operations and business interests.
  • We disclose personal data if we believe that disclosure is in accordance with, or required by, any applicable law or legal process, including lawful requests by public authorities to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
