Information We Collect From and About You.
Information Provided to Us.
Information from You. We collect personal information (information that identifies you as an individual) and other information from you through your use of any of our websites or mobile applications (“Property” or “Properties”). Examples of the type of information we collect include, but are not limited to, your name, e-mail address, age, gender, the name of the school you attend, billing and/or shipping address, phone number, payment account information, your preferences and interests, and other information about you. We also collect information that you provide to Dransfield Jewelers directly, such as through your contact with our customer service representatives or sales associates, or that you provide to Dransfield Jewelers via Dransfield Jewelers independent sales representatives.
Information You Provide About Others. If you initiate a communication to someone else through a Property such as through a “send-to-a-friend” feature, the information you provide (names, e-mail addresses, etc.) is used to facilitate the communication and is not used for any other marketing purpose unless we obtain consent from that person or we expressly advise otherwise. Please be aware that your name and/or email address could be included in any send-to-a-friend communication.
Information from Other Third Parties. In the course of our business and in providing our products and services, we receive personal information about individuals from our customers and partners.
We also acquire information from other trusted sources to update or supplement the information that you provided or we collected automatically, such as information to validate or update your address or other demographic and lifestyle information.
Information Collected as You Access and Use a Property.
Web Browser or Device Information. We and our service providers collect information sent by your web browser or device, including your IP address, and other information that does not identify you personally such as a device or browser token, the date and time of your visit, information about your web browser or device type, etc. The information received depends on the settings on your web browser or device. If you have created a user identity or profile on one of your visits to a Property, we link the information provided by your browser or device to information that identifies you personally and use it for the purposes described in this Policy. Please review the settings of your web browser or device if you want to learn and change what information is sent by your browser or device.
“Do Not Track” Headers. “Do Not Track” (DNT) is a web browser setting which lets the websites you visit know that you do not want them collecting information about you. We do not respond to DNT settings or signals.
Cookies. A cookie is a data file placed on a computer. We use both “session cookies” and “persistent cookies” to collect information for record keeping purposes, to make it easier for you to use a Property, and to customize information that is presented to you through a Property. Session cookies are used to store information while a user accesses a Property, and expire when the user closes his/her browser “session.” Persistent cookies store information across sessions (e.g., to make it easier to log into a Property) and stay on your computer until the expiration date set in the cookie (e.g., at the end of a calendar month) or until you delete it. We also use HTML5 local storage which is a newer, faster and more secure cookie technology used with the HTML5 web language. Like traditional cookies, HTML5 local storage can be used as session storage or persistent storage. We also use “Flash cookies,” locally-stored data files used to personalize your use of a Property through Adobe Flash technologies. Flash cookies can also be used by our third party service providers to collect and store information. Flash cookies are different from standard browser cookies because of the amount of, type of, and how data is stored.
Embedded Scripts. We use embedded scripts, which is programming code designed to collect information about how visitors interact with a Property, such as the referring website which linked them to a Property and the manner in which they use a Property. Embedded scripts are downloaded onto your device’s cache from our web server or a third party service provider and are deactivated or deleted following the end of your session once your browser cache is cleared.

To Provide, Manage and Improve our Properties, Products, Services and Our Business and to Deliver Content. We use information that we collect and obtain to provide our goods and services, to administer a Property, and for other lawful business purposes. These include the manufacture and printing of products, such as yearbooks, announcements, memory books and jewelry which can contain personal information such as names and photos. We also use the information that we collect and obtain about you to measure and improve our Properties, products and services; to help up maintain the accuracy of information in our systems; to customize certain features of a Property, to deliver relevant content and to provide you with an enhanced experience based on the type of device you are using. Except where prohibited by applicable law, we use information to send you promotional communications by email, regular mail, text and other methods regarding our products and services, and may serve advertising on a Property that we believe is likely to be of interest to you. You can manage whether and how you receive such communications as described in the “Your Choices” section of this Policy.
To the extent permitted by law, we may use third party advertising service providers, including networks, data exchanges, ad servers, analytics providers and others to serve ads regarding our products and services. These third party service providers utilize Tracking Technologies to collect certain information about your visits to our Property and third party websites, your interaction with our Property or those websites, and the products and services offered by us, our partners, and others. We and our partners use this information, as well as information received from other sources, for marketing analysis, for quality improvement purposes, and to provide you with customized content and offers. We do not control Tracking Technologies used by third parties, and their use is governed by their own privacy policies. For more information on online advertising, please visit http://www.aboutads.info. We also use Google Analytics along with audience data (e.g., age, gender and interests of users) to better understand users’ visits to and use of our Properties, and to optimize served content. You can manage the use of Tracking Technologies and Google Analytics to collect information about you as described in the “Your Choices” section of this Policy.
In Connection with Promotions. We offer sweepstakes, contests, and other promotions (any, a “Promotion”) that require registration. By participating in a Promotion, you agree to the official rules for that Promotion. If you enter a Promotion, the information you provide through registration can be used and disclosed as set forth in this Policy, as well as in connection with the administration of such Promotion and as required by applicable law or permitted by the Promotion’s official rules.
For Us and Our Service Providers to Provide Services and Deliver Content. We use third party service providers to perform certain services in connection with our business, such as fulfilling and processing orders, payment processing, verifying and validating information, hosting all or part of Properties, providing website usage analytics, list management, sending communications, customer support, providing marketing assistance and data analysis, and providing other administrative services. We provide our service providers access to information, including personal information, only for the purpose of carrying out services on our behalf. Certain service providers use Tracking Technologies to collect and store information about you and your use of a Property, and combine this information with information they collect from other sources. If you access a Property through a mobile device or application, certain of your information is shared with the mobile carrier or application provider. Information provided through a portion of a Property that is hosted by a Dransfield Jewelers service provider may be stored on our systems, and/or the systems, of our service provider, and will be provided to Dransfield Jewelers and/or processed by that service provider for Dransfield Jewelers’ business purposes.
To Comply with Legal Requirements and Protect You, Dransfield Jewelers and Others. To the extent permitted by applicable law, we may disclose information when we, in good faith, believe disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law or a regulatory requirement; to comply with governmental, administrative or judicial process, requirement or order, such as a subpoena or court order; to cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental investigations (without necessarily requiring the law enforcement or government agency requesting the information to formally serve us with a subpoena); to prevent or investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to enforce a contract; to protect the legal rights, property, or safety of Dransfield Jewelers, its corporate affiliates, and their respective employees, clients, partners and agents, other users or the public in general; or to protect your vital interests if determined necessary by us. In addition, we review our server logs for security purposes, such as detecting intrusions into our network. If we suspect criminal activity, we share our server logs – which contain visitors’ IP addresses – with the appropriate investigative authorities who use that information to trace and identify individuals. We also reserve the right to report to appropriate law enforcement or government agencies any activities that we, in good faith, believe are in violation of applicable laws, rules or regulations without providing notice.
In Connection with Corporate Events. If one of our corporate affiliates or a third party has acquired all or part of our business, specific assets or the business of one of our operating divisions through which you have provided information to us, e.g., as the result of a sale, merger, reorganization, insolvency, dissolution or liquidation, ownership of your personal information will transfer to that company. In that event, the acquiring company’s use of your personal information will still be governed by this Policy and the privacy preferences you have expressed to us.
Your Choices Regarding the Collection and Use of Information.
When you provide personal information to us, you control whether you would like to receive further communications from us and/or from our clients and partners about products or services of interest. You have the right to withdraw your consent.
If you decide you no longer want to receive marketing communications from us:
- To unsubscribe from marketing emails, click the “unsubscribe” link in the commercial electronic message you received. Alternatively, you can e-mail us at DransfieldJewelers@gmail.com and specify in your e-mail which consent you are revoking.
- To unsubscribe from marketing mail, email us at DransfieldJewelers@gmail.com and provide the name and mailing address of the person to be unsubscribed. If you change mailing addresses after unsubscribing from physical marketing mailings, you will need to unsubscribe your new mailing address.
Please note that Dransfield Jewelers’ clients and partners (such as independent designers and sales representatives) may also send you marketing communications regarding Dransfield Jewelers products unless you unsubscribe from their communications. If you give us permission to add your contact information to the mailing list of one of our clients or partners and later withdraw your permission from Dransfield Jewelers, you will have to unsubscribe from that client or partner’s mailings as well.
If you choose not to provide us with the right to use personal information, we may not be able to provide you with the product, service or information you requested. We use certain personal information to create the products we offer, such as jewelry, announcements, yearbooks and memory books. If you elect not to give us the right to use personal information in connection with the creation of our products, it may result in the omission of a person’s name, picture, and/or other information from a yearbook or memory book, or the inability for us to create a customized product.

Your use of the features and functionality of this Property will be limited if you set your browser to reject cookies. If you opt out of having your information collected through cookies, web beacons and other tools, your existing display advertising cookie(s) will be deleted and a new cookie will attempt to be placed that instructs service providers not to track your future activities when that cookie is detected (a “no-track” cookie). If your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you visit our opt-out page, a “no-track” cookie cannot be set on your computer. Also, if you subsequently erase “do-no-track” cookies, use a different computer or change web browsers, you will need to opt-out again. Please note that cookie-based opt-outs only apply to the specific computer and browser on which the opt-out cookie is applied.
Reviewing and Updating Your Personal Information.
If you would like to review, correct or challenge your personal information, or if you are the parent or legal guardian of a minor and would like to review, correct or challenge that minor’s personal information collected pursuant to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act, please contact us at DransfieldJewelers@gmail.com. If you contact us, we may, for your protection, ask you for additional information to verify your identity. In most cases, we will provide the access you request and correct or delete any inaccurate personal information you discover. We reserve the right, however, to limit or deny your request to the extent permitted by applicable law if the disclosure could lead to a breach of applicable law and regulation, such as in case of any legal obligation to retain certain data, or if you have failed to verify your identity to our satisfaction.

Consent to Transfer Information to the United States.
If this Property is a website or commerce solution, it is operated in the United States and is intended for users located in the United States. If this Property is a software application, it is intended for users located in the United States. If you are located anywhere outside of the United States, please be aware that information we collect, including personal information, will be transferred to, processed in, and stored in the United States. The data protection laws in the United States differ from those of the country in which you are located, and your personal information can be subject to access requests from governments, courts, or law enforcement in the United States according to the laws of the United States.

We have implemented reasonable security measures designed to protect your personal information from unauthorized access and disclosure. It is important that you understand, however, that no commerce solution, website, application, database or system is completely secure or “hacker proof,” and we cannot anticipate all potential misuse of your information. Please note that we cannot guarantee the security of any information you transmit to us, and your use of a Property indicates that you are willing to assume this risk.
