Our Policies and Practices Regarding the Sharing of Your Personal Information

We do not sell or otherwise disclose your Personal Information to non-affiliated third parties except as set forth in this Privacy Statement. We may disclose your Personal Information to third-party financial institutions, consumer reporting or credit agencies to determine your eligibility for a product or service you have requested from us. We may disclose your Personal Information to third parties who provide services or perform functions on our behalf, or who process or service our transactions with you. When we share your Personal Information with third parties in either of these circumstances, such information may be used only for the limited purpose for which it was shared, and we do not authorize these third parties to share your Personal Information with others except to fulfill that limited purpose. In addition, we will disclose your Personal Information when you direct or give us permission, when we are required by law to do so, or when we reasonably believe that disclosure is necessary to protect Bhagwandas Jewelers or you or third parties from a threat of imminent harm, such as through suspected fraudulent or criminal activities. We also may disclose your Personal Information when otherwise permitted by applicable privacy laws such as, for example, when disclosure is needed to enforce our rights arising out of any agreement, transaction or relationship with you.

Collection and Disclosure of Information through our website

In addition to the types and sources of information already described, Bhagwandas Jewelers may collect or track the following types of information through our website:

  • The home server domain names, e-mail addresses, type of computer and type of Web browser used by visitors to our Site;
  • Both aggregated and user-specific information regarding requested pages in the website that our visitors access or search, or specific items within the website that our visitors view or select.

Aggregated statistical and navigational information does not include individual names, personal data or account information, so it does not identify you or any other customer. We also may place internet "cookies on "visitors" hard drives to enhance the browsing and shopping experience on the Bhagwandas.net web site. These cookies are text files that save data about the visitor, such as the "visitors" name, password, user name, items purchased from us, screen preferences and most frequently viewed pages on our website. When the visitor revisits the website, we may recognize the visitor through the cookie and customize the browsing experience on the website accordingly. The cookies only collect information about the visitors on whose hard drives they are deposited and only about our website, not those "visitors" other internet experiences. There are no personally identifiable pieces of information stored anywhere in these cookie files, and they are used solely by Bhagwandas Jewelers to enhance your shopping experience and to allow us to serve you better in the future. The information captured makes it possible for Bhagwandas Jewelers (i) to speed navigation, keep track of items in your shopping cart, and provide you with custom tailored content; (ii) to remember information you gave to us so you don't have to re-enter it each time you visit the Bhagwandas Jewelers site; (iii) to monitor the effectiveness of some of our marketing email campaigns; and (iv) to monitor total number of visitors, pages viewed, and the total number of visitors served. Most people do not even know that cookies are being placed on their computers when they visit the Bhagwandas.net site or most other web sites because web browsers are typically set to accept cookies. In addition, most commercially available web browsers (such as Microsoft Explorer) permit users to decline cookies. Please consult your browser "help" feature for more information. Note that if you refuse cookies, you will be unable to order from the Bhagwandas Jewelers site. Moreover, by not allowing cookies, your overall internet browsing experience could be adversely affected. For example, it may prevent you from viewing certain product images.

The information we collect on our website is also used to solve technical problems and to improve the overall experience for the visitor. We do not disclose website "visitors" Personal Information to third parties except as set forth elsewhere in this Privacy Statement. However, we may disclose aggregated data of website traffic, search requests and page or ad views for marketing or promotional purposes.

For your convenience, we may include on our website certain links to other sites. We provide these links as a convenience only and we do not endorse the content or services offered by, or the privacy policies in place on other websites. Our Privacy Policy covers only information we collect on our website, and other websites to which may have privacy policies that differ considerably from our Privacy Policy. We have structured our website to make it reasonably clear when you leave our website and enter another website. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of each site you visit through our links, to ensure you are comfortable with these policies. We are not responsible for the conduct or policies of these third parties.
