Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

The Hair and Makeup Artist Network and the THMAN Foundation (collectively, "THMAN") are committed to protecting the personal information that you provide to us when using the THMAN Site. This Online Privacy Statement describes how we treat all user data collected during your visit to the THMAN Site, both anonymous data and personally-identifying data.

The THMAN may occasionally update this Statement. We will post any changes on this Web page, so be sure to check back periodically. If we do make material changes, we will post a notice on our home page that the Online Privacy Statement has been modified and provide a link to the revised Online Privacy Statement. Any information that you submit after a change has been posted will be subject to the new provisions.

User Data We Collect

We collect two types of user data: (1) anonymous data that is automatically collected from all visitors to the THMAN Site; and (2) personally-identifiable data that you voluntarily submit to us (described below under "Personal Data").

Anonymous Data.

We automatically collect Internet Protocol addresses and domain names through our server and through cookies. (See the section on Cookies below for more information.) We also track the number and frequency of hits per page on an aggregate basis.

Personal Data.

We may collect Personal Data that you voluntarily provide, such as your name and postal address, phone number, e-mail address, and similar information, when you participate in certain activities on the THMAN Site, including (but not limited to) when you:
- join or renew your membership to the THMAN;
- sign up for our THMAN e-mail network;
- send correspondence to your government representative through the THMAN Site;
- order items from the THMAN store;
- register for our message board;
- participate in one of our online surveys; or
- participate in any activity that requires your Personal Data.


We collect some data through the use of cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that are transferred either to your computer's hard drive ("Long-term Cookies") or temporarily to your computer's Random Access Memory ("Session Cookies").

We use Long-term Cookies only when you select a "remember" option on the THMAN Site, for example the "remember my login" option offered when you log on to the THMAN Site, or the "remember me" option offered on the Write Your Elected Representative page. If you select these options, a Long-term Cookie will be stored on your computer's hard drive solely for the purpose of automatically filling in the remembered information, for example, automatically filling in your password when you log in to the THMAN Site or your postal address when you write a letter to your representative. These "remember" options are offered only for your convenience and are completely voluntary. If you do not select a "remember" option, no Long-Term Cookie will be stored on your computer's hard drive.

We use Session Cookies whenever you visit the THMAN Site to run the Site's interactive applications, such as the shopping cart. Session Cookies last only as long as your session on the THMAN Site. They expire when the session ends and are not written onto your computer's hard drive.

How We Use The Data We Collect

We use anonymous data to identify the source of user traffic, but we are not able to use this data to identify individual users. We use data on which sections of the THMAN site are most visited, so that we can evaluate the popularity of our different Web pages and continue to improve the THMAN Site. We do not link any anonymous data with the Personal Data you provide to us.

We use your Personal Data for various purposes:
- To fulfill the request for which you specifically provided the data;
- To personalize the content that you see based on the activities and products that you have selected on the THMAN Site;
- To allow you to set and change user preferences;
- To allow you to renew your membership in the THMAN; The THMAN Site is hosted by servers in the United States. Accordingly, if you are located outside of the United States, the Personal Data you provide to us will be transferred to the United States. By submitting your Personal Data, you consent to its transfer and storage in the United States and its use in accordance with the purposes for which it was originally collected (see below regarding third-party sharing of Personal Data from non-U.S. residents).

If you are a U.S. resident, we may also from time to time combine your Personal Data with some publicly available data collected from third parties, to improve our services to you and for our own internal marketing, and communications purposes.

Third Parties

We enter into agreements with outside companies to provide services to our users. When we enter into such agreements, we require that these companies adhere to the same strict privacy standards in regards to the security and confidentiality of your information. We also do not allow such third party companies to disseminate your information to any other party.

Unaffiliated Third Parties

As a service to our users, we partner with unaffiliated third parties to offer products and services. At no time is your confidential information provided to these third parties.

Legally Required Disclosure

There may be occasions where we are legally required to disclose information about you, such as in response to a subpoena, to prevent fraud, or to comply with a legally permitted inquiry by a governmental agency.

Opt In/Out

Our site provides an opportunity to opt-out of receiving communications from us and our partners at the point where we request information about you. Further, by not opting-out at the applicable places, you are opting-in to our use of your private information as laid out in this privacy statement and policy.
