1. Information Collection and Use
Sites and Services
We may collect personally identifiable information about you in the following instances:
When you purchase a product from us, we collect your full name, salutation, email address, the full invoicing and/or delivery address(es) that you provide us with, your login credentials and, if you are purchasing a ring, the recipient's finger size. All sensitive payment data collected on our Site is used only for the purpose of completing the transaction. Transaction information is transmitted to our payment partner, Sage Pay, using SSL encryption. All credit card related data will be handled confidentially and will not be used for any other purpose, or divulged to any other parties not connected to this transaction.
When you register for a customer account but do not make a purchase, we may collect some personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, salutation, email address and login credentials, that you choose to give us when you fill in the registration form on our Site.
When you order a ring sizer tool from us, we collect your name, salutation, email address, full postal address and telephone number. We will also collect the finger size of the recipient.
When you subscribe to our email newsletter via the form on our website, we initially collect your name, email address and salutation, and any further information you later choose to give to us via our email preferences form, such as your surname, city of residence and date of birth.
Gold Boutique actively undertakes measures to prevent fraud taking place on our website and to ensure that your credit, debit or charge card is not being used without your consent. As such during the transaction process you will be prompted through the use of CVV and other security measures to verify that you are the valid cardholder. Therefore we may validate your name, address and any other personal information supplied by you during the order process against appropriate third party databases. By accepting our Terms of Service, you consent to such checks being made. In performing these checks, personal information provided by you may be disclosed to a registered Credit Reference Agency which may keep a record of that information to confirm your identity (a credit check is not performed and your credit rating will be unaffected).

2. How we use your information

4. How We Share Your Information
Personally identifiable information
Gold Boutique will never rent or sell your personally identifiable information to others. We may store personal information in locations outside the direct control of Gold Boutique (for instance, on servers or databases co-located with web or email hosting providers). Any personally identifiable information you elect to make publicly available on our Sites or Gold Boutique services, such as posting comments on our blog or social media pages, will be available to others. If you remove information that you have made public on our Sites or Gold Boutique services, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of our Sites or social media profile pages and feeds, or if other users have copied or saved that information.
Our social media and blog pages
Gold Boutique social media pages and blog are managed by third party applications that may require you to register if you wish to interact with them, for example by posting comments or likes, following Gold Boutique's social media profiles or publications, or sharing or re-posting blog articles. We do not have access to or control of the information you post to social media or our blog via these third party applications. You will need to contact or login into the third party applications if you want the personal information that you posted removed. To learn how the third party applications use your information, please review their privacy policies.
Our email platform
We send our email newsletters through a third party email platform, which acts only as a data processor in respect of your information. This means that we, Gold Boutique, use the platform to send emails to our customers, and thus, we remain the controller of your personal data, meaning that all requests to unsubscribe, to have your details removed, amended or deleted should be sent to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also unsubscribe from our email newsletters by clicking the unsubscribe link at the bottom of every promotional email message we send.
If you apply to purchase jewellery through the third party financing offered via our website please note that Gold Boutique will only pass on the personal data that you supply and consent to giving to the third party, and from that moment onwards Gold Boutique will not control or hold on to said data. To learn how the third party uses your information, please review their privacy policies.
Non-personally identifiable information
We may share non-personally identifiable information (such as anonymous usage data, referring/exit pages and URLs, platform types, number of clicks, etc.) with interested third parties, such as our email platform provider or our web designers, to help them understand the usage patterns for our Sites.
Instances where we are required to share your information
Gold Boutique will disclose your information where required to do so by law, if subject to a legal proceeding or if we reasonably believe that such action is necessary to (a) comply with the law and the reasonable requests of law enforcement; (b) to enforce our Terms of Service or to protect the security or integrity of our Service; and/or (c) to exercise or protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Gold Boutique, our users or others.

5. Storage and Processing
Your information, collected through Gold Boutique Sites, may be stored and processed in the United Kingdom, Europe, or any other country in which Gold Boutique maintains facilities.

6. How we protect your information
Gold Boutique is committed to protecting your privacy and data, and we use the latest industry standard physical, technical and managerial safeguards and security services to ensure that Gold Boutique Sites are as fully secure as possible. When you enter sensitive information (such as log in credentials) on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secure socket layer technology (SSL). We use an outside help platform, and a credit card processing company to bill you if you purchase services. These companies do not retain, share, store or use personally identifiable information for any other purposes. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and, therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security. Therefore, in the event that personal information is compromised as a breach of security, Gold Boutique has a Compromise of Personal Information Plan ready and will promptly notify our customers in compliance with applicable law. Gold Boutique complies complies with all applicable legislation regarding the collection, use, and retention of personal data and adheres to the requirements of notice, choice, onward transfer, security, data integrity, access and enforcement. If you have any questions about security on our Site, you can contact us at email@example.com.
7. Children's Privacy
Protecting the privacy of young children is especially important and Gold Boutique does not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from anyone under the age of 18. We only sell products to persons who can purchase with a credit, debit or charge card. We reserve the right to refuse service, terminate accounts, remove or edit content, or cancel orders at our sole discretion.
