Security and privacy:

The information gathered by us is only for the purposes of processing your order, personalizing your shopping experience, informing you of deliveries, delivering the merchandise to the proper destination, and generating statistics for our own use. We take every precaution to protect our users' information. When users submit sensitive information via the web site, the information is protected both online and offline.

We use the information you provide about yourself when placing an order only to complete that order. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. We use the information you provide about someone else when placing an order only to ship the product and to confirm delivery. We do not share this information with outside parties except to the extent necessary to complete that order. We use return e-mail addresses to answer the e-mail we receive. Such addresses are not used for any other purpose and are not shared with outside parties. Finally, we never use or share the personally identifiable information provided to us online in ways unrelated to the ones described above, without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.

"Cookies" are small pieces of information that are stored by your web browser onto your computer's hard drive. There are two types of cookies, "stored" and "per-session". Stored cookies are saved onto your hard drive permanently, whereas per-session cookies are not. If our web site is left idle for over 30 minutes or if your web browser is closed, the per-session cookie will be deleted as well. We use cookies to keep track of your current shopping session. Gemcal does not use cookies to store or retrieve your personal information. By default, most web browsers have both types of cookies enabled, but these settings can be altered. To place an order on our website, per-session cookies have to be enabled, but stored cookies do not. Like many other Internet web sites, the usage of our web site is automatically tracked. We profile web site usage by tracking the pages viewed, the previous and following pages visited, the type of web browser used, and the computer's address. This information is used to analyze trends, track use, gather demographics and optimize site administration.

We would like to assist you with further information if needed, and we welcome your comments, complaints, or compliments. Please do not hesitate to contact us.

Thank you, The Gemcal Team.
