The Global Garnet site uses an order form for customers to place orders or to request information. We collect contact information from site visitors (such as their email addresses) and financial information (such as a credit card number for purchasing). Contact information from the order form is used to send orders to our customers and to get in touch with the visitor when necessary. The only purpose of collecting financial information is to bill the customer for purchases made while on the site.
If you decide to order products through our web site, then we will need certain information (name, address, phone number, etc.) in order to be able to process the order. We do not sell, trade, rent or give this information to anyone else. We may hire another company to provide certain services (such as shipping or fulfillment), and will only share the personal information they need to provide the services for which we contract. Such companies are required to maintain the confidentiality of any such information.
We may be required to disclose visitor information collected pursuant to legal requests (e.g. subpoenas or court orders), or in order to be compliant with applicable laws. We do not release information until we have a good faith belief that requests by law enforcement or litigants meet ethical and applicable legal standards.
