PERSONAL INFORMATION USE AND DISCLOSURE

At Gein Abaci, we explicitly ask when we want information that personally identifies you. By "Personal Information", we mean individually identifiable information about an individual that is collected online, including, but not limited to, name, physical or email address, telephone number or other information that is associated with individually identifiable information. For example, we may ask you for your name and email address if you wish to register with our site to receive product information and updates or send us an email to request feedback.

We reserve the right to collect and disclose (to our affiliates and to non-affiliates such as authorized Gelin Abaci jewelers) user behavior and Personal Information to the extent permitted by applicable law or in the Terms of Use (set forth below). We may place a text file called a "cookie" in the browser files of your computer. The cookie itself does not contain Personal Information although it enables us to collect information about your visits to our site. We may use this information to enhance your experience at our site and may share some information with our authorized jewelers or others.

We reserve the right at all times to disclose any information as necessary to satisfy any applicable law (including, without limitation, the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act), regulation, legal process, demands by parties claiming your infringement of their rights or governmental request, or to edit, refuse to post or remove any information or materials, in whole or in part, in our sole discretion. We have no control over third parties to whom you may give Personal Information through the use of our site.

HOW TO OPT-OUT

We may send you e-mail updates or product information that we think you would like. You have the option of deciding not to receive any of our future mailings each time you register with our site. We make information, including Personal Information, available to a select group of non-affiliated companies such as authorized Gelin Abaci jewelers that we think may have products or services that you would enjoy. If you do not want to receive these messages, send us an e-mail to remove your name from the list at merchant@gelinabaci.com.

COOKIES

We do our best to provide you with product information and services that we think you will enjoy. We may use cookies (which are small computer files that let us know when and how often you visit our site and identify your user preferences such as what pages of our site you visit) to keep and track information about you. We may use cookies to deliver customized content based upon individual user preferences. We may also match information obtained from cookies with data provided by you. We analyze this data both in the aggregate and in connection with individuals. This information lets us know what you may like so that we can give you the information or services you may want, and we also provide the aggregate analysis of our users to prospective partners, advertisers and other third parties.

IF YOU DON'T LIKE COOKIES.

You can have your browser reject the cookies. Companies that advertise on our site might use their own cookies, and this Privacy Policy does not cover how these companies use their cookies.

Similarly, you'll see that when you visit us at GelinAbaci.com, we provide you the opportunity to link to other sites not operated by us. These sites, including those belonging to our advertisers, may collect personally identifiable information about you. This Privacy Policy does not address the information practices of those other web sites or of our advertisers. Also, Gelin Abaci is not responsible for the information practices and content of these sites; they are not under our control. Be aware of these facts when you decide to click through to another site.

SURVEYS AND POLLS

We may conduct periodic surveys and polls of our users to find out your satisfaction level with products, services or email communications you receive from us, our authorized jewelers or other third party non-affiliates. We will either post these on our website or send you an email. Any information we collect from the survey will be edited before we release it to a third party, and sometimes we will receive compensation for a portion or all of this information. All surveys are optional, and when you participate in a survey, you are completely anonymous, and the replies you give us are instantly separated from your Personal Information. If you do give us your name or e-mail address in some section of the form where we have not requested it, we will delete it before releasing the data outside GelinAbaci.com. The survey reports we send out to clients will include aggregated data. If we ask you for a zip code it is just to help us compare the opinions of users from all different parts of our GelinAbaci.com membership or to determine whether we have a sufficient number of authorized Gelin Abaci jewelers to service a particular region. We will only participate in survey initiatives on behalf of clients whom we believe will protect your privacy.
