The Palagems.com Safe Shopping Guarantee:
- We guarantee that every transaction you make at Palagems.com will be 100% safe. This means you pay nothing if unauthorized charges are made to your credit card as a result of shopping at Palagems.com.
Our guarantee protects you while shopping at Palagems.com, so that you never have to worry about credit card safety. Period.
What makes Palagems.com so safe?
- Safe Technology: Our secure server software (SSL) is among the best available today for secure commerce transactions. All of your personal information is encrypted, including credit card number, name, and address, so that it cannot be read as the information travels across the Internet.
Still don't want to use your credit card on the Internet?
- Not a problem. Just fill out our online order form and check the box that tells us you prefer to give us your credit card details by phone. After you have submitted your order, we will call you to confirm your order and get your credit card information.
- Under the Fair Credit Billing Act, your bank cannot hold you liable for more than $50.00 of fraudulent charges. If your bank does hold you liable for any of this $50.00, Palagems.com will cover the entire liability for you, up to the full $50.00. Palagems.com will cover this liability only if the unauthorized use of your credit card resulted through no fault of your own from purchases made at Palagems.com while using the secure server.
- In the event of unauthorized use of your credit card, you must notify your credit card provider in accordance with its reporting rules and procedures.
What information do we collect? How do we use it?
- When you order, we need to know your name, e-mail address, mailing address, credit card number, and expiration date. This allows us to process and fulfill your order and to notify you of your order status.
- When you sign up for our Personal Notification Services we need only an e-mail address – which we use to send the information you requested.
- If we hold a contest or other promotional feature, we may ask for your name, address, and e-mail address so we can administer the contest and notify winners.
- We personalize your shopping experience by using your purchases to shape our recommendations about the gems, jewelry and minerals that might be of interest to you. We also monitor customer traffic patterns and site usage to help us develop the design and layout of the store.
- We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about important functionality changes to the web site, new Palagems.com services, and special offers we think you'll find valuable. If you would rather not receive this information, simply let us know via e-mail.
How does Palagems.com protect customer information?
