IP Addresses

When your Web browser or email application requests a Web page from another computer on the Internet, it automatically gives that computer the address where the requested information should be sent. This is called your computer’s “IP address.” (IP stands for “Internet protocol.”) For most users accessing the Internet from a dial-up ISP, the IP address may be different every time you log on.

Information Collection and Use Practices

Skintastic receives your IP address each time you view a Web page from the Site. Your IP address is not linked to your email address or any other personally identifiable information.

Your IP address may be used for various purposes, including:

  • to diagnose service or technology problems reported by you that are associated with your IP address.
  • to estimate the total number of users visiting the Site from specific locales, countries or regions of the world.

Log Files

When a Web page on the Site is requested, that request (including the date and time) is logged on our servers with information including the IP address of the computer that requested the page.

We use log files for debugging and troubleshooting purposes. IP addresses and access times are not linked to your email address or any other personally identifiable information.


If you request certain services from us, Skintastic may then attempt to set cookies on your computer and later access those cookies. You can normally refuse cookies by setting preferences in your browser. You do not need to accept cookies in order to use the Skintastic Services.

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a Web site’s computers and then stored on your computer’s hard drive. A cookie cannot obtain information from your hard drive, destroy files, or transmit viruses.

Each Web site can send its own cookie to your browser, if your browser’s preferences allow it. To protect your privacy, your browser normally only permits a Web site to access cookies that it has previously sent to you, but not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

We leverage cookie-based technology to group users into re-marketing audiences who have expressed an interest in our procedures by accessing key pages throughout our website. We do not collect any personally identifying information with this cookie. Audience members may be shown Skintastic ads on various 3rd party Internet sites or applications for a limited period of time. You can opt out from receiving Interest-Based Advertising here.

Choices About Cookies

  • You can normally configure your browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set. (Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.)
  • If you reject all cookies, you will still be able to use the Skintastic Services.
  • Cookies are used only as an option selected by you that allows us to recall your email address from the cookie that we sent to your computer.
