Information we collect from you may be either personal or aggregate. Personal information is identifiable to you, like your name, email address, shipping and billing addresses or credit card information. Aggregate information is summary data of the behaviors and interests of groups or categories, so it won’t identify you.
Aggregate Information. We use aggregate information for the purposes of internal business research and sales and business development. We may share aggregated information about our visitor and customer base with third parties such as our retail partners. This information may include the number of daily visitors to our Site and the number of orders placed on a certain date. We do not link aggregated data with personal information.
Personal Information. We do not sell, rent, trade, license, or otherwise disclose your personal information to third parties, except in these limited circumstances:
Disclosures to our Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties. Like most Internet retailers, we use third parties to help ensure our business runs smoothly. We disclose your information to these third-party companies so they can perform their specific functions for us, such as shipping jewelry to you. When we employ other companies to perform functions of this nature, we only disclose the information that they need to perform their requested function. We do not authorize them to retain, share, store, or use personal information provided by us for any other purpose.
Disclosures Required by Law or Otherwise. We may disclose your personal information if we believe, in good faith, that it’s necessary to: (1) comply with a legal obligation such as in response to a court order or subpoena; (2) protect the safety of fellow customers or the public; (3) protect against legal liability; or (4) protect and defend our rights or property.
