ABOUT LA MER

La Mer joined The Estée Lauder Companies' family of brands in 1995. Sold in more than 50 countries and territories, La Mer represents supreme luxury and transformative, high-performance skincare. Crème de la Mer, one of the most innovative and sought-after moisturisers, was conceived by Dr. Max Huber, an aerospace physicist, after he suffered a laboratory accident that severely burned his face. Formulated with sea kelp and a pioneering bio-fermentation process, the Crème miraculously transformed the appearance of Dr. Huber's skin. Since then, it has evolved into what can only be described as a legend. Today, La Mer offers a complete range of facial skin care and body products—all harnessing the remarkable benefits of the sea.
At La Mer there are several different types of job opportunities available. More information about the job opportunities can be found here. We are an equal opportunity employer.

  • Other Rights

Subject to applicable law, you have the right to receive, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, the personal data that you have provided to us about you, with your consent or based on a contract to which you are party. You also have the right to have this information transmitted to another data controller, where it is technically feasible. You may exercise this right by contacting us as indicated below. You may also lodge a complaint with a data protection authority.

Data Transfers

We may transfer the personal data we collect about you to our affiliates and third party service providers to countries other than the country in which the information was originally collected (including the United States), where necessary to fulfill the purposes described in this Policy and your personal data may be processed and stored outside of your country of residence. Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as your country of residence and your personal data will be subject to applicable foreign laws. United States laws have not been recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection. When we transfer your information to other countries, we will protect that information in the manner described in this Privacy Policy. We have also implemented appropriate safeguards to ensure such a level of data protection when transferring your personal data, including the conclusion of data transfer agreements incorporating the European Commission’s Standard Contractual Clauses, and our U.S. service providers are certified to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission regarding the collection, use and retention of personal data transferred from the European Economic Area to the United States, or other applicable data transfer mechanisms. You may obtain a copy of these data transfer mechanisms by contacting us as indicated below.

Data Retention

We keep the information you provide for the duration of our relationships, plus a reasonable period in order to be able to run regular deletion routines or to take into account the applicable statute of limitation period or if required under mandatory applicable law. If you wish to receive marketing communications, we will keep the information necessary to send you these communications following the end of our customer relationship or following their collection, if you are a prospective customer.

How We Protect Personal Data

We maintain appropriate technical and organizational safeguards to ensure an appropriate level of security of your personal data, in particular to protect your personal data against accidental unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. However, no security system is perfect and we cannot promise that information about you will remain secure in all circumstances, including the security of your data during transmission to us or the security of data on your mobile device.
