Avon is not responsible or liable for the collection, use or disclosure of Personal Information and/or other information that is made publicly available.

 

Location-identifying technologies.

INDEPENDENT SALES REPRESENTATIVES

 

The following provisions are applicable only to Avon’s Independent Sales Representatives:

 

This Privacy Statement applies to the Personal Information of Independent Sales Representatives collected by Avon, whether collected online or offline. This information would be collected in addition to any Personal Information we may collect from you as an Avon customer, as described above.

 

If you seek to become an Independent Sales Representative we may collect and use your Personal Information including credit-related information to determine your eligibility.

 

In order to be appointed an Independent Sales Representative, you will be required to enter into a separate Independent Sales Representative agreement with Avon (“Representative Agreement”). If you have entered into a Representative Agreement, we may collect, use and disclose your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Statement and the terms of your “Representative Agreement.” We also may collect, use and disclose your Personal Information as necessary to fulfill our obligations under the Representative Agreement including your social insurance number (SIN) for tax reporting and your credit card or bank information for payment of your account by credit card or direct debit. Your payment information may be collected by telephone or other voice telecommunications service offered by Avon. In the event of a conflict between this Privacy Statement and the Representative Agreement, the terms of the Representative Agreement shall apply.

 

Once you are an Independent Sales Representative (including a sales leader), we may disclose your Personal Information:

 

  • To Territory Sales Managers, Business Development Managers and Regional Sales Managers or their equivalent, who may be independent contractors to Avon;
  • As part of our sales leadership program, to Independent Sales Representatives who are sales leaders;
  • To current and potential customers who are seeking the assistance of an Avon Sales Representative; and
  • As necessary to comply with legal requirements such as tax and record keeping obligations.

 

We may also combine the Non-Personal Information that we and our third-party service providers collect about your use of our Sites (as described above) with your unique Representative account number. We may use the combined information for purposes such as to analyze Independent Sales Representatives’ use of our Sites, in order to evaluate and make improvements to our business model, and for other internal analytics purposes.
