The Gem Quarry's online privacy policy governs personal information gathered on our Internet site.

Personal Information that The Gem Quarry May Collect Online

The Gem Quarry collects personal information online, including names, postal and e-mail addresses, phone and facsimile numbers, billing information, and complaint information. The Gem Quarry does not knowingly collect or maintain any personal information from children under the age of 13. In addition, no part of our sites are designed with the purpose of attracting any person under age 13.

How The Gem Quarry Uses Personal Information Collected Online

Unless you otherwise consent, we will use your personal information only for the purpose for which it is submitted, such as to reply to your emails, handle your complaints, and process billing and business requests related to program participation, and we will use such information to provide operational notices, in program record-keeping and to conduct research on industry marketplace practices. Our research may lead to the publication of aggregate demographical data but will not result in the reporting or publication of any personal information provided to us. At certain points where personal information is collected on our site, there may be a box where you may indicate you would like to be on a mailing list to receive information about other The Gem Quarry programs and services and about ways to support The Gem Quarry. At any time you can add or remove your name from a The Gem Quarry list by contacting us at kathy@gemquarry.com.

How Your Information May Be Shared

In the unlikely event of a complaint, The Gem Quarry may send the complaint to the merchant account company where the payment or order in question is headquartered; handle the complaint itself; or refer the complaint to another appropriate organization for handling. Depending on the type of complaint, The Gem Quarry may also transfer complaints to the manufacturing company. Customers should recognize that email transmission of information may not be secure. Without submission of the requested information, The Gem Quarry will not be able to process your complaint.

We never sell or rent your personal information.

The Gem Quarry may also release personal information under the following circumstances:

  • Where release is required by law (for example, a subpoena) or regulation or is requested by a government agency;
  • Where our records indicate a company may be engaged in fraudulent activity or other deceptive practices that a governmental agency should be made aware of;
  • To appropriate governmental authorities, where warranted by a company's failure to participate in the advertising self-regulatory process or respond to an online privacy complaint, or where a company fails to honor the recommendations of the National Advertising Division, Children's Advertising Review Unit or National Advertising Review Board;
  • To appropriate persons, where your communication suggests possible harm to others. Help Us Keep Your Personal Information Accurate
