How do we use your personal information?

  • To provide you with products or services that you request from us.

Who do we share your personal information with?

The Younger Lives Companies believe in partnership to help people to change their health behaviours for the better. As part of that mission we may share your personal information with strategic partners and trusted third parties based outside the country in which you live so that they may process that data on our behalf.

These include:

  • Agencies who help us deliver and analyse the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns and promotions
  • Third parties required to deliver a product or service to you, such as a delivery or postal service delivering a product that you have ordered
  • Law enforcement or government authorities where they have followed due legal process to request us to disclose the information
  • Third parties who wish to send you information about their products and services, but only if you have given us consent to do so
  • Third party providers of services, such as data processing, to Younger Lives
  • Web analytics tool providers, such as Google or Unica

If we do share your personal information with a strategic partner or with trusted third parties, we shall use our best efforts to ensure that they keep your information secure, take all reasonable steps to protect it from misuse and only use it in a manner consistent with our instructions, this Privacy Notice and applicable data protection laws and regulations.

  • Enforce applicable terms of use of this website.
  • Conduct investigations into possible breaches of applicable laws
  • Detect, prevent and protect against fraud and any technical or security vulnerabilities
  • Comply with applicable laws and regulations, co-operate in any legal investigation and meet enforceable governmental requests

Younger Lives does not sell personal information, except to an entity to which we divest all or a portion of our business (for example, in connection with a sale), or otherwise in connection with a merger, consolidation, change in control, reorganization or liquidation of all or a portion of our business.

Transferring your personal information

We may transfer your personal information to servers located outside the country in which you live or to affiliates or other trusted third parties based in other countries so that they may process personal information on our behalf.  By using a Younger Lives Site or otherwise providing Younger Lives Companies with personal information, you agree to us doing so in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Notice and applicable data protection laws and regulations. 

You should be aware that many countries do not afford the same legal protection to personal information as you might enjoy in your country of origin. While your personal information is in another country, it may be accessed by the courts, law enforcement and national security authorities in that country in accordance with its laws. Subject to such lawful access requests, we promise that anyone processing your personal information outside your country of origin is required to implement measures to protect it and is only entitled to process it in accordance with Younger Lives instructions.

Safeguarding your personal information

We take all reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure and require any third parties that handle or process your personal information for us to do the same.
