You must provide your email address and your friend’s email address to send the product information and to let your friend know you sent them the product information by email. Their email address is used only for this purpose unless we obtain their permission to use it for their purposes.
How We Disclose Information
We provide aggregate information to third parties that does not contain personally identifiable information. We may share your information, including your personally identifiable information, with our affiliated businesses and companies. Examples include sending your name and address to our affiliated companies so they may send you product information, catalogues, or investor information. We may also share any information you provide us with third parties that perform services on our behalf. For example, we may share your information, including personally identifiable information to our partners, agents or contractors to complete your purchase, deliver your order, provide marketing services, process your payment, provide risk management services, or investor relations information. They may retain and use personally identifiable information that you provide us, but may not share it with third parties. We may also disclose your information with your consent.
In our sole discretion, we may also disclose any information about you that we deem necessary to third parties, including your personally identifiable information, so we may:
Comply with any law, regulation, court order, legal process, or government request;
Investigate or prevent any potentially fraudulent or illegal activity;
Confirm the authenticity of any purchase transaction or authorization of any credit card payment transaction;
Protect the safety, property, or rights of OQ Diamonds and its affiliated companies, the Site, our users (or others);
Your Privacy Choices
You may choose not to give us your information, but you may not be able to use the Site or make a purchase. You will be given the opportunity to choose whether your personally identifiable information is to be used for a purpose that is different from the purpose originally intended or authorized.
Protection of Information
We take measures to protect your information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, and alteration. For example, we encrypt your passwords and credit card information when you transmit them to us. However, we will treat any communication or material you transmit to the Site by electronic mail or otherwise that is not personally identifiable information as non-confidential and non-proprietary. Such communications or materials include, without limitation, questions or answers, comments, feedback, and suggestions.
As we continue to develop our business, we may sell web sites, companies, or other assets.
