Privacy Policy

Effective Date: February 9, 2020

This Privacy Policy explains how AEDIT may collect, use, disclose and otherwise process personal information in connection with our website, mobile applications (including The AEDITOR app), and the services we provide in connection with the apps and websites (collectively, the “Platform”). The Privacy Policy also describes the rights and choices available to you regarding your personal information. The term “AEDIT,” “we,” and “us” includes AEDIT, LLC and our affiliates and subsidiaries.

AEDIT is an expert portal for beauty treatments, brought to you by the doctors and editors that matter. Our website and The AEDITOR app are directed at two types of users:

  • Trusted providers and medical experts who use the Platform to advertise their practices and connect with potential patients (“Providers”); and
  • Consumers who wish to learn about cosmetic procedures and locate and connect with Providers (“Users”). Our AEDITor app also lets Users edit their photo to see what they may look like with a certain cosmetic enhancement. In addition, Users can direct us to share their information with Providers with whom they wish to connect through the Platform.


We collect the following types of personal information in connection with the Platform:

From Users:

  • • Account Information. When you create a User account on the Platform (an “Account”), you will provide us with certain personal information, such as your user name and password. If you log in to your Account through a third-party platform, such as Google, we may collect the information that you allow the third-party platform to provide to us, based on your privacy settings with that third party (such as your email address and calendar information). Our processing of the information we obtain from third-party platforms is governed by the requirements these third-party platforms impose on us in their relevant terms and conditions.
  • • User Contact Information. When you register for an Account or otherwise interact with us, we may collect your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number.
  • • Demographic Information. When you register for an Account or otherwise choose to provide it to us, we may collect your gender, date of birth, general location information (i.e., city and state)
  • • Cosmetic Preferences and Concerns. When you register for an Account or otherwise choose to provide it to us, you may identify your desired areas of improvement and cosmetic concerns.
  • • Camera and Photos (iOS App Only). If you use the app’s photo editing features, we collect the photographs you provide via your camera or camera roll, including any metadata associated with the photographs and any customizations you make to your photographs using the app. The editing features require that you grant us permission to access your camera or camera roll. You can revoke these permissions as described in the “Choice” section below.
  • • Biometric Data (iOS App Only). If you use the app’s photo editing features, we collect biometric data such as facial scans of photographs you upload to or take using the App, and data derived from this information. We do so by making use of Apples built in TruDepth API. The TruDepth Camera that is built into newer Apple Phones allows AEDIT to determine the distance of a pixel from the front facing camera thus allowing us to determine the facial measurements of our end users.

From Providers:

  • • Provider Contact Information. If you become, or consider becoming, a trusted provider on the Platform, we may collect your personal and business contact information, such as your name, email address, mailing address, and phone number.
  • • Professional Credentials. We may collect information about our Providers’ professional credentials, such as your role or specialty, and your educational or work history.

Please note that if you become a Provider on our Platform, our processing of your personal information will be governed by the terms and conditions of your engagement with the Platform.

From All Platform Visitors:

  • • Reviews and Comments. We collect the reviews and comments you submit to the Platform or provide when you visit or interact with our pages on social media platforms, such as when you post a review of a doctor on the Platform, leave a comment on our Facebook page, or interact with our blog. If you choose to submit reviews and comments to any public area of the Platform, such content will be considered “public” and will not be subject to the privacy protections set forth herein.
  • • Feedback. We may also collect personal information from you when you communicate with us. For example, you may send us personal information by providing feedback, requesting assistance, or writing an email to us or subscribing to an Aedit mailing. If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.
  • • Survey Responses. From time to time, we may contact you to participate in online surveys. If you do decide to participate, you may be asked to provide certain information which may include personal information, and we will collect your responses to such surveys.
  • • Passive Collection. We, our service providers and third party partners use cookies, beacons, pixel tags and other tracking technologies to collect and store:
  • • Device data, such as information about the device you are using to visit our websites or use our apps, including your device operating system type and version number, manufacturer and model, device identifier (such as the Google Advertising ID or Apple ID for Advertising), browser type, screen resolution, Internet protocol (IP) addresses, and Internet service provider (ISP).
  • • Online activity data, such as browsing history, search history, referring/exit pages, the files viewed on our Platform (e.g., HTML pages, graphics, etc.), date/time stamp, clickstream data, and other information about your interactions with our websites and apps, social media pages, and our email communications. [

We use this passively-collected data for internal purposes, including to analyze trends, compile statistics about use of the Platform, track Users’ movements around the Platform, help you navigate between pages efficiently, remember your preferences and generally improve your browsing experience, and measure the success of our marketing campaigns (including whether recipients of our emails open or click links within them), and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. Information that we collect using these technologies may be combined with other information we maintain about you.

[g]As noted above, you may stop or restrict the placement of cookies on your computer or remove them from your browser by adjusting your web browser preferences. Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings. Please note that if you set your browser to disable cookies, the Platform may not work properly. Please note that cookie-based opt-outs are not effective on mobile applications. However, on many mobile devices, App users may opt out of certain mobile ads via their device settings, which may limit our, or our partners’, ability to engage in ad tracking or targeted advertising using the Google Advertising ID or Apple ID for Advertising associated with your mobile device. To manage our advertising on other sites, we engage third party advertising partners. These third-party partners may use technologies such as cookies to gather information about your activities on the Platform and other sites in order to provide you advertising based upon your browsing activities and interests. Certain of our third-party advertising partners participate in self-regulatory organizations, and those organizations operate websites that give you the ability to opt-out of receiving targeted ads from those partners. You can access these websites, and also learn more about targeted advertising and privacy, at Network Advertising or AboutAds (for members of the Digital Advertising Alliance). You can also choose not to be included in Google Analytics here. App users may opt out of receiving targeted advertising in mobile apps through participating members of the Digital Advertising Alliance by installing the AppChoices mobile app, available here, and selecting the user’s choices. Please note that we also may work with companies that offer their own opt-out mechanisms and may not participate in the opt-out mechanisms that we linked above. To be clear, whether you are opting out by adjusting your browser/device settings or by using a website established by a self-regulatory group, cookie-based opt-outs must be performed on each device and browser that you wish to have opted-out. For example, if you have opted out on your computer browser, that opt-out will not be effective on your mobile device. You must separately opt out on each device. Do Not Track. Please note that we do not respond to or honor “do not track” (a/k/a/ DNT) signals or similar mechanisms transmitted by web browsers. Marketing. If you receive a marketing email from us, you can use the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of the email to opt out of receiving future marketing emails. You can opt out of text messages from us by replying to the message with the word “STOP”, “BLOCK”, “CANCEL”, “STOPALL”, “UNSUBSCRIBE”, “QUIT”, or “END”. In addition, if you submit your mobile phone number through such a form, then you understand and consent to AEDIT and/or the health care provider sending you text messages. You understand that standard text messaging fees and data rates may apply. You can opt back in to text messages from AEDIT by texting “START”, “YES”, “UNSTOP”. We will process your request within a reasonable time after receipt. You may continue to receive service-related and other non-marketing communications. App Permissions. You may revoke any permissions you previously granted to us through the app, such as permission to access your camera or camera roll, or send you push notifications, through the settings on your mobile device.
