Thank you for accessing ChavahGems.com (“Site”). Chavah Gems respects your privacy and takes your online safety seriously and want you to know about the policies we have in place to protect your personal information.
How does ChavahGems.com collect information about me?
We collect information from Site users in several different ways, with the goal of providing an efficient, enjoyable shopping experience. We can use your personal information to:
- Record and quickly bring up information you’ve given previously
- Respond to your order inquiries
- Create content that is relevant to you
- Notify you of our new information, products, and services
Registration and Ordering: To process an order, all customers must fill out an online order form with personal information, including but not limited to, your name, shipping and billing address(es), phone number, email address, and credit card number. In addition, we ask for your country of residence and/or your organization’s country of operation, so that we can comply with applicable laws and regulations. This information is used for billing, order processing, and internal marketing as well as to communicate with you about your order and our site.
Email Addresses: Several locations on the Site allow you to enter your email address for the purposes of registering for our free and informative newsletter, promotional notices, and notification of new products. Any participation in our promotional contests organized by Chavah Gems is completely voluntary and requires participants contact information so that we can notify winners and award prizes. We may post the names and cities of contest winners on our Site and social media sites. Your email address will be kept private and not sold to third parties.
Product Reviews: For verification purposes, we ask for an email address with the submission of all product reviews. Your email address will be kept private, but your user name will be visible to other users. All other personal information or comments that you choose to submit as part of the review will also be available to other visitors to the site. If you leave a review, the review and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue. Visitor’s comments may be processed through an automated spam detection service.
Site Registrants: Users that register on our website can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Users must contact the Site administrator to identify and edit that information.
When you log in, we will set up cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you leave a comment/review on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address, and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year. This site’s cookies do not and cannot infiltrate a user’s hard drive to gather any confidential information. They are used to:
- recognize users and user access privileges
- track site usage
- record your browsing activity and purchases
How does Chavah Gems use my personal information?
We use your personal information to process your order and provide you with customer service. We may use your personal information internally to collect general information about visitors to our sites, optimize site content and layout, improve our outreach, and market our services and products.
We will use your personal information to communicate with you about your orders and your user experience. All customers must provide an email address to allow communication with Chavah Gems.com regarding orders placed. We do not sell or otherwise disclose your personal or financial information to anyone, except in the following specific situations:
Third-party service providers: Like most online retailers, we sometimes use third-party service providers to perform specific functions on our behalf. Any information disclosed to them is solely to help in their provision of service. For example, we provide your name, shipping address, email and phone number to partners such as UPS in order to guarantee delivery of your orders, and we may use relevant customer information in order to monitor the quality of the third party’s service.
Similarly, we must provide your credit card number to financial services organizations such as credit card processors and issuers in order to process payments. We protect all submissions of your credit card number for authorization with state-of-the-art data encryption. (More on this below in the Data Security section.)
How does Chavah Gems.com secure information collected about me?
This Site incorporates physical, electronic, and administrative procedures to safeguard the confidentiality of your personal information, such as:
- Safeguarding all financial transactions done through this site with Secure Sockets Layer (“SSL”) encryption
- Granting only employees who are providing specific service access to your personal information
- Working only with third-party service providers who we believe adequately secure all computer hardware.
We have taken all of the necessary precautions to safeguard your personal information. However, please note that 100% security does not presently exist anywhere, online or offline.
