For your protection, personal information provided on the Malak Jewelers Sites are transmitted through a secure server using Secure Socket Layering (SSL), encryption technology to protect your personal information during data transmittal. SSL encrypts information such as your name, and address. Most browsers use a symbol to indicate that you are on a secured web site. For example, Netscape and Internet Explorer use icons in the bottom left hand corner of your browser to communicate to you that the site is secured. Also, when the letters “http” in the URL change to “https,” the “s” indicates you are in a secure area employing SSL. Please note that e-mail is not encrypted and is not considered to be a secure means of transmitting information.
We are committed to handling your personal information with high standards of information security. We take reasonable physical, electronic and administrative steps to maintain the security and accuracy of personally identifiable information we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as employing electronic security systems and password protections that guard against unauthorized access.
For purposes of forums, discussion boards, certain promotions, and other public interactive areas that may be available on the Malak Jewelers Sites from time to time, you are solely responsible for the information and other content you post on or through the Malak Jewelers Sites. You understand that personal and other information that you post on or through public areas of our Site are generally accessible to, and may be collected and used by, others and may result in unsolicited messages or other contact from others. Users of the Malak Jewelers Sites are encouraged to exercise caution when posting personal information about themselves in public areas.
Generally, you may browse the Malak Jewelers Sites without providing any personally identifiable information. However, we may ask you to provide personally identifiable information at various times and places on the Malak Jewelers Sites. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with the requested information, you may not be able to access all of the areas on the Malak Jewelers Sites or participate in all of its features. When you visit and use the Malak Jewelers Sites, we may need to collect certain personal information from you in order to provide and improve upon our products and services. How we collect this information will depend on how you choose to use our services and interact with us, including the services and opportunities we might provide on the Malak Jewelers Sites. We may require your name and e-mail address to add you to an e-mail newsletter list. We may also offer the option to interact with one of our representatives directly while using the Malak Jewelers Sites in order to ask questions, request information, and to assist you in using our services.
You can access many features on the Malak Jewelers Sites without providing personal information to us, but doing so may prevent you from making full use of all the online features and/or promotions we offer and may limit our ability to provide you with the level of service that you would otherwise expect from us. In short, the information we gather is all designed to help us deliver attentive customer service.
The Malak Jewelers Sites also uses a web use monitoring service which provides us with certain information about visitors such as IP addresses and publicly available information, for the purposes of giving us operational and marketing data about our website visitors’ use of the Malak Jewelers Sites for our business purposes. This aggregate information provides statistics and publicly available information that we use to analyze, market and improve our Malak Jewelers Sites and business. We do not collect any personally identifiable information unless you voluntarily provide it.
You may opt-out of having your personal information used for commercial purposes. If you would prefer not to be contacted about our special offers, products or services, or if your personally identifiable information changes (such as zip code, phone, email or postal address), you may correct, update or delete/deactivate your personally identifiable information at any time by notifying us via the “Contact Us” form elsewhere in this Malak Jewelers Site or at the e-mail address provided within any communication we send you.
If you use more than one e-mail address, send your opt-out e-mail from each of your e-mail addresses. If you receive any online newsletter or similar promotional e-mail communication from us, you will always be given the option to “unsubscribe” from receiving further e-mail communications from us at any time. Your option not to receive promotional and marketing material will not preclude us from corresponding with you, by e-mail or otherwise, regarding your existing or past business relationships with us (e.g., any purchase of our products or use of our services, or responses to requests for information you pose to us either through use of the Malak Jewelers Sites or by other means), and will not preclude us from accessing and viewing your personal information in the course of maintaining and improving the Malak Jewelers Sites, our products or our services. Because customer lists generally are prepared well in advance of a communication, eblast or offer, you may continue to receive some offers after you send us a request not to use your information for specified marketing purposes. We appreciate your patience and understanding in giving us time to implement your request.
