Information Collection and Use
Whatajewel.com is the sole owner of the information collected on this site. We will not sell or rent this information to any third parties. Whatajewel.com collects information from our users at several different points on our website as described in this policy.
User Information Removal
If you wish to remove all your user information including your name, address, passwords, addresses and data such as purchases you have made and reviews you have given, from our records please contact us.
When you make a purchase on our site, you will be asked if you wish to create an account. If you create an account, the system will remember your personal and purchase information and the checkout process on future purchases will be fast, easy and always completely secure.
Creating an account is also fast and easy: simply enter your personal information once and select your very own username and password, unknown even to What A Jewel. We will collect your name, shipping address, and other contact information. If we have difficulty processing an order, this contact information is used to communicate with the customer.
During checkout on your next purchase, just login and the system will take care of the rest. At all times, your personal information is accessible to you to review, edit, or update as necessary by clicking on the “My Account” link.
What A Jewel uses Bambora for real time payment processing. At the point of purchase, the consumer is transferred to Bambora’s secure web server to enter their credit card and billing information. Bambora processes the transaction and then provides both the merchant and the customer with an e-mail copy of the receipt. Thus, whatajewel.com never collects your credit card information. For more information about Bambora’s information-handling practices, visit https://www.bambora.com/en/ca/privacy-policy/
