Understanding Jewellery Sàrl is responsible for the collection, processing and use of your personal data and must ensure compliance with the law.
In cooperation with our hosting providers, we endeavor to protect the databases as much as possible from unauthorized access, losses, misuse or falsification. We would like to remind you that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can be subject to security vulnerabilities. A complete protection of the data against access by third parties is not possible.
By using this website, you consent to the collection, processing and use of data in accordance with this policy. This website can be visited without registration. Data such as pages accessed or names of files accessed, date and time are stored on the server for statistical purposes without this data being directly related to your person. Personal data, in particular name, address or e-mail address are collected to the extent possible on a voluntary basis. The data will not be made available to third parties without your consent.
- SCOPE OF APPLICATION
Personal data is all information that refers to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, retrieval, deletion, recording, alteration, destruction and use of personal data.
We process personal data in accordance with Swiss data protection law. Insofar and to the extent that the European General Data Protection Regulation (EU-GDPR) is applicable, we further process personal data in accordance with the following legal provisions in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 EU-GDPR:
Point a) processing of personal data with the consent of the data subject.
Point b) Processing of personal data for the performance of a contract with the data subject and for the implementation of corresponding pre-contractual measures.
Point c) Processing of personal data to discharge a legal obligation to which we are subject under any applicable EU law or under any applicable law of a country in which the EU-GDPR is applicable in whole or in part.
Point d) The processing of personal data for the purpose of protecting the vital interests of the data subject or another natural person.
Point f) Processing of personal data to protect the legitimate interests of us or third parties, unless the fundamental freedoms and rights and interests of the data subject prevail. In particular, legitimate interests include our business interest in being able to provide our website, information security, the enforcement of our own legal claims and compliance with Swiss law.
We process personal data for the duration necessary for the respective purpose or purposes. In the case of longer-term storage obligations due to legal and other obligations to which we are subject, we limit the processing accordingly.

your IP address (under certain circumstances)
the version of your browser software
the operating system of the computer with which our website was accessed
the website from which you are visiting our website
the search words you used to find our website
Under certain circumstances, this data may allow conclusions to be drawn about a particular visitor. However, personal data is not used in this context.
- Execution and Processing of Orders
When you order our services or products, we collect and use personal data from you such as your first and last name, address, e-mail address, payment details and possibly other data such as telephone numbers or date of birth as well as any data voluntarily entered by you.

- Third Parties
Your data will be transferred to our partners (third parties) as far as the processing of your orders makes it necessary. If we pass on data to external service providers, technical and organizational measures are taken to ensure that the data is passed on in accordance with the legal provisions of data protection. If you make personal or company-related data available to us on your own initiative, we will not use, process or pass on this data beyond the scope permitted by law or by you in a declaration of consent. We only pass on your data to external service providers insofar as this is necessary for the performance of the contract and they have agreed to the corresponding confidentiality and diligence provisions. In addition, we will only pass on your data if we are obliged to do so by law or by official or court orders.
We may also use third party advertisements on this website to support our website. Some of these advertisers may use technology such as cookies (see below Cookies) when they advertise on our website, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, the browser you used and possibly whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (such as showing Lausanne real estate to someone in Lausanne, for instance) or showing certain ads based on specific sites visited (such as showing ads for cars to someone who regularly visits car websites).
You can adjust your browser settings so that no cookies are stored on your computer. The complete deactivation of cookies may result in you not being able to use all functions of our website.
If you subscribe to our newsletter, you agree that we may use the data provided by you, such as your first and last name, address, e-mail address and any data you have voluntarily entered in your user profile, to send you the newsletter.
- Analytics Tools
Our website may use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your web browser, to help the website analyze how users use the site (see above Cookies). The information generated by the cookie (browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL / previously visited website, IP address, time of server request) about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the U.S. and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on our website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.
- Social Media plug-ins
We use the following social plug-ins on our website to make our company better known (advertising purposes). The respective provider is responsible for the compliance with data protection regulations. Data processing in connection with these plug-ins takes place with your consent when you use these plug-ins.
If you use the services of these social networks independently or in connection with our website, the social networks will evaluate your use of the plug-in. In this case, information about the plug-in is forwarded to the social networks.
Facebook and Instagram
Our website uses plug-ins from the social network Facebook, which is offered by Facebook Inc. The Facebook plug-ins are marked with a Facebook logo or the addition “Like” or “Share”. An overview of the Facebook plug-ins and their appearance can be found at https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.
If you access a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the page.
This integration provides Facebook with the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook profile or are not logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook profile. If you interact with the plug-ins, for example by pressing the “Like” button, this information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on your Facebook profile and displayed to your Facebook friends.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in Facebook’s data protection information: www.facebook.com/policy.php.
Plug-ins of the Twitter Inc. short message network are integrated on our website. You can recognize the Twitter plug-ins (“Twitter” button) by the Twitter logo and the suffix “Twitter”. If you access a page on our website that contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click on the Twitter button while logged into your Twitter account, you can link the content of our pages to your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to assign the visit to our pages to your user account.
We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we do not have any knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or its use by Twitter. You will find further information on this subject here: http://twitter.com/privacy.
Plug-ins of the social network LinkedIn Corporation, USA, are installed on our website. You can recognize the LinkedIn plug-in (“LinkedIn Recommended” button) by the LinkedIn logo. When you access a page of our website that contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the LinkedIn server. LinkedIn receives the information that you have visited our website with your IP address. If you click on the LinkedIn button while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link the content of our pages to your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to assign the visit to our pages to your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of the pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data or its use by LinkedIn. Further information can be found at: www.linkedin.com/legal/privacy-policy.
Google Maps services can be used on our website (e.g. in-screen or via interfaces/API). Google LLC, USA, may therefore process information about your actual location.
