We may share information with service providers, trusted partners or other entities that provide services. This includes:
These service providers only receive the personal information necessary for their function(s), and they are not allowed to use, share or store any personally identifiable information for any other purpose other than the purpose set forth by VMK Diamonds.
We may transfer your information as part or any acquisition, sale of company assets, or merger. Your personal information would be transferred as one of the assets of the company in the event of insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership.
Personally Identifiable Information that we may share for security purposes
You authorize us to share personal information deemed necessary by law to protect VMK Diamonds or others from loss or injury, or Compliance with Law and Fraud Protection.

(1) we, at our own discretion, deem necessary to share in order to comply with any legal process, governmental request or laws and regulation.

(4) we deem necessary to share in order to act upon any agreement that we have with you.
NON PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION (NPII)
Non Personally Identifiable Information (NPII) is Information that on its own does not identify a specific individual.
This information often includes the visitor’s computer operating system, ISP (internet service provider) domain name, type of web browser used, search terms used by visitors, and pages viewed.
This technical data is often aggregated to provide an overview of the browsing patterns of large groups of visitors and is usually used to measure and improve the effectiveness of a website, target the visitors’ interests and facilitate the overall shopping experience.
We do not link the information we store in cookies or collect from web beacons to any personally identifiable information you submit while on this site.
HOW WE COLLECT THIS DATA
VMK collects data through cookies, web logs, web beacons and other monitoring technologies.
A Cookie is a small amount of data which often includes an anonymous unique identifier which is sent to the visitor's browser from VMK's servers and stored on the visitor's hard drive.
Visitors can set their browser to accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify them when a cookie is being sent. Disabling cookies may restrict some valuable features on websites often visited, such as automatic "sign-in" features and tailored content.
When visiting this site, your IP Address is stored by VMK Diamonds. This is used to track visitor movements, traffic patterns, preferences and interests, session date and duration, use of your shopping cart, and demographic information. It helps with diagnosing server problems and administering and tuning website operation, verifying identities and preventing fraud or abuse.
Information about a friend
Another way we collect information is when a visitor provides a friend’s information as part of our referral program, or when a visitor wants to share the site, a product from the site, a wish list from this site, gift an item from this site, or send a gift card. We will send your friend a one-time email at the email address you provided. VMK diamonds stores this information solely for tracking such services.
What We Do with this Data
While we strive to safeguard our visitors' personal information once we receive it, no transmission of data over the Internet or any other public network can be guaranteed to be 100% secure and, accordingly, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information disclosed or transmitted to us.
To enhance our services and business activities, we may create anonymous records by excluding personally identifiable information from personal information. These records may be used for internal purposes, such as analyzing usage patterns. We also reserve the right to use and disclose any information in such records at our discretion.
To Opt Out
Use of third party utilities may assist you in visiting our website anonymously. However, for unlimited access and an optimum shopping experience, we don't recommend the use of these utilities or disabling cookies.
OTHER PRIVACY POLICIES
Information that we collect on this site may be stored and processed in any county where VMK, its affiliates, subsidiaries or representatives maintain facilities.

We post customer testimonials on this site that may contain personally identifiable information. We do not post names with the testimonials without first obtaining permission from the customer, however if you do not wish for your story to be posted on this site, please contact us here.
The forums and blogs offered on this site are publicly accessible. Be aware that any information you provide in these areas may be accessed and used by other readers and visitors.

In some cases it may be impossible to remove your information, in which case we will let you know if we are unable to do so and why.
Children under 13
VMK Diamonds does not sell products for purchase by children. We will not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have collected personally identifiable information from a child under the age of 13, we will delete that data from our systems.
This site links to other web sites which are their own entities and have their own privacy policies that may not be similar to VMK’s policies. Please review the privacy policies posted on any other web site that you visit.
Accessing and Updating Your Information
For instructions on how to access, correct, amend, update, or delete (to the extent allowed by law) your personal information in our records please contact us here.
We only communicate with you if you choose to hear from us.
If you decide to subscribe to communications from us, we will use your contact information to email you about special offers, campaigns and other things that we think might interest you.
You may choose to stop receiving emails at any time by following the unsubscribe instructions at the bottom of our emails.
When you opt out of communications with us we will still contact you via telephone or email with regards to your orders and account with us. On occasion we also may email you a service-related announcement, when it is relevant to you.
VMK Diamonds has put in place suitable procedures to protect personally identifiable information that visitors share with us. We utilize a combination of physical, electronic, and security technologies, and organizational measures to protect your personally identifiable information from unauthorized access both online and offline.
We use Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) encryption technology to encrypt the transfer of sensitive information over the internet.
An SSL certificate provides private communication channels for data transmission and encrypts it by scrambling the data as it travels from your computer to our website’s servers. (SSL encryption has been compared to that of an envelope being sent through postal mail. The envelope protects what's inside, and conceals its contents until it reaches the final destination.)
Before you submit your personal information, you can verify that the server you’ve accessed is secure. An unbroken key or a closed lock icon on the lower-left hand corner of your browser or a lock icon to the left of the site’s URL in the address bar will indicate that SSL is active. If you have accessed a secure server, the first characters of the address in that line should change from "http" to "https".
If for any reason you cannot access the secure server, or if you're not quite comfortable shopping online at our websites, please feel free to place your order with us via telephone 1800 VMK-7687.
Employees in the Know
As a standard part of our security measures, all VMK employees are educated and kept informed about company security and privacy policies, with regular updates and retraining.
Phishing is an illegal scam in which you receive an email appearing to be from a designated company or organization, asking you for personal information such as your username, password, credit card information or other personal information. Do not respond to such emails — we will never request your personal information via email.
