Security

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.

Only authorized Malak Jewelers representatives and agents working on Malak Jewelers’ behalf have access to the data. Malak Jewelers representatives and agents will not share information with any third parties outside of Malak Jewelers, other than as set forth in this Security and Privacy Policy.

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.
